Common Questions and Answers about Blood glucose and pancreatitis

blood-glucose

Avatar f tn Received blood results. ALT 74 AST 123. My glucose is 112 and my tryglicerdies are 306. I have no abdomonal pain but do feel very fatigued. I just recently had gone to the hospital for heart palpitations and feeling like i was going to pass out. Are these levels still able to come down? Or is it possible that there is no turning back at this point? Very nervous.
Avatar n tn I too have a very low lipase number with acute and pain, blotted stomach, constipation, and gas (coming out both ends). Went to ER. They did a CT and blood work and told me everything was fine and sent me out the door. I was still in pain, bloated and feeling abandoned. I have all my labs and finally my CT scan results. I will be calling them on Monday 11/16/2020. They lied to me.
Avatar f tn In November 2008 I went into the hospital with pancreatitis. I knew nothing about pancreatitis before that day but that day changed my life forever. I went into the emergency room 3 times before they finally figured out what was wrong and admitted me. Once they realized the severity of my condition they said if I had waited even 24 before getting treatment I could have died. I was there for 10 days. I spent my 30th Birthday and Thanksgiving in that hospital.
Avatar m tn Usually after chronic pancreatitis patients develop insulin dependent diabetes mellitus and this should be ruled out by fasting blood glucose, post prandial blood glucose and glycosylated hemoglobin (a test which gives last 3 months control over blood glucose). Diabetes often causes rapid weight loss. Crohn’s disease is a difficult entity to diagnose and can cause weight loss. Along with gut symptoms skin disorders and arthritis too are commonly seen with Crohn’s.
Avatar f tn Ask what is happening and is this from gallstones and do you have pancreatitis and if so, what can you do and what can you expect. http://www.ddc.musc.edu/public/problems/diseases/pancreas/pancreatitisChronic.cfm I hope this finds you already seen by your endocrinologist and feeling better.
Avatar f tn We took him to the doctor he never vomited or diahrea until the day after he got to the vets office. His amalyse was high like 8000 and his glucose and white blood count low but we got an ultrasound to make sure not cancer. He started to show improvements with the IV and antibiotic. Now a week later he is starting to decline and the vet has tried everything. He is now barely sitting up and cant walk. He has lost over 30 pounds.
Avatar f tn Besides the yellowish skin and eyes, I also experience gas, bloating/ stomach distention, sometimes slight pain under right rib cage and food intolerances to wheat, gluten and glucose/sugars. Here is what my lab results have been so far - COMPLETE METBOLIC PANEL Normal B12 levels Normal Folate and Iron levels Low Vitamin D levels @ 18.
Avatar f tn m always tired, suffer from a very heavy monthly flow, going through every emotional possible, shortness of breathe to the point I now have 2 inhalers, feeling drained all the time, cold hands and feet and struggling to loose any weight at all. I had a blood test for thyroid and glucose and it came back clear.
Avatar n tn Dear Doctor, About 6 months ago I went for my initial blood test which showed my CA 19.9 level as 51 and it fluctuated to 43 and then to 57 and the last test which was done about 3 onths ago shoed 53. So I started giving up my beer and liquor and also started going on a vegetarian diet and abstaining completely from Tea,Coffee, Milk and sugar. I also take wholemeal bread for breakfast lunch and dinner at times. I have lost weight about 5 kilos in 4 months time.
Avatar n tn Hey all, i'm 21 years old and about a month + ago I was diagnosed with pancreatitis. I had my first attack - a really high fever with stomach pain - that had me in the hospital for about 3 days. After being discharged and going back to food, I had the same fever (no stomach pain this time around) 2 days later and that ended up with me sitting in the hospital for a month without food or water.
Avatar n tn I had hyperparathyroidism and it was my understanding that was separate from my thyroid issue. I'm not sure that is clinically correct though. Hope you get more answers.
Avatar m tn Is there any relationship between blood glucose and sweat? And are there articles that will support the relationship of this two? Thank you very much.
Avatar n tn for best assessment you need to have a HOMA calculation. If you are on tx the A1C will not be accurate. Get a fasting insulin and glucose test, and then we will help you do a HOMA calculation unless your doctor knows how..this is to determine if you have become type 2 diebetic (insulin resistant) IR. PM me for more info.
Avatar m tn or it could be pancreatitis.. if you've been drinking or hitting NSAD's really hard lately..the pain is pretty high with pancreatitis and you'd be doubled over..but not always. A blood test for pancreatitis can be used if you've been drinking a lot.. either way with an ulcer i'd avoid alchohol/tylenol/asprin like the plague. That'll kill your stomach.
Avatar n tn Sounds like it is your pancreas and/or liver. Did you have a Liver Panel, Amylase, Glucose and Lipase labs drawn recently? Are you seeing a Gastroenterologist? Keep us posted.
Avatar m tn You have no energy because your liver is being seriously injured. Glycogen and Glucose are the two forms of sugar that your body employs to store and use as energy . Glucose is the sugar your body converts into energy. Glycogen is the sugar your body stores in both your liver and muscle cells. Your body can't use glycogen directly as a source of energy, and cannot store glucose. So when the liver is damaged it can't covert glycogen to glucose for your body to use for energy.
Avatar m tn Now its been basically non-stop, confirmed by mri, that it is chronic pancreatitis, and fatty liver. Im being sent to a pain specialist for the pain, and hoping he can offer relief, because Ive been recieving very little help from my doctor with that. Im 5'5", used to be about 138lbs, and now am 162, with gain of 10lbs a month on a low fat diet, no meat, no bread, soft food. I dont understand except unless wieght gain is from thyroid going wrong, im hypothyroid.
Avatar n tn After he was at the vet the entire day of Monday he was put on an IV for fluids and blood samples were taken. The vet assumed pancreatitis, which was odd because he was never fed table scraps and didn't go through the trash; plus he didn't vomit or have diarrhea. The vet said to feed him high protein, non-fatty foods such as yogurt, eggs and boiled meats. Monday night I prepared scrambled eggs for him and he wasn't interested. Tuesday morning he ate some scrambled eggs.
Avatar f tn You might have pancreatitis. That could cause all 3 symptoms, and the elevated enzymes. Other causes of your symptoms would not likely do that. Make sure your doctor checks you thoroughly for pancreatitis.
Avatar f tn Usually after chronic pancreatitis patients develop insulin dependent diabetes mellitus and this should be ruled out by fastin blood glucose, post prandial blood glucose and glycosylated hemoglobin (a test which gives last 3 months control over blood glucose). Treatment is by analgesics and antioxidants. Surgical procedures like resection and drainage are often helpful. Other than that pancreatic enzyme supplementation helps restore pancreatic function to some extent.
Avatar f tn The doctor said my pancreas is sluggish and work like it should and this is why my blood levels are normal. Can anyone tell me if exocrine pancreatic insufficiency affects lipase and amylase levels during a pancreatitis flare up? Also has anyone ever had normal blood levels with pancreatitis?
