Avatar m tn Then a packet was put together containing containing the bottle of insulin, the lancets, the lancet pen, and the glucose meter. The glucose meter and the lancet pen were not new. They had been used many times and "cleaned" in between inmates by the medical assistant. This equipment was sent to the jail housing unit in which the patient was housed and stored on the medication cart. The jail custody staff passed the medications.
Avatar n tn Chromium appears to play a role in normal insulin function and glucose utilization, and some investigators have suggested that it increases insulin sensitivity and glucose tolerance and decreases blood glucose levels in certain diabetics, possibly those with low chromium levels. However, others have not corroborated these findings, and a few have even reported a negative effect on glucose tolerance and blood levels.
Avatar n tn Hi, My mom is a diabetic and I was just wondering to check my glucose levels to make sure that I am okay. She has an On-Call glucose monitor. I changed the lancet in pen stick to puncture the skin and then used a new strip for readings. So my question is that I used new lancet and strip so is there any risk of infection whatsoever? And also tell me that if i will catch diabetes this way.
Avatar m tn 1- the pen outer had dry blood on it what are the chances of HCV (hepatitis c ) and HIV my concern is raised due to 2 thing i tested my sgpt sgot they are high i think due to the acne medicine i am taking but from this encounter do i have any risk ?
Avatar f tn that would be because hiv is not transmitted through environmental cannot survive outside it's host. see your doctor if you are having health's not hiv related.
Avatar m tn m a medical student, two months ago i was working on a research regarding diabetes, where we measure their glucose level using the glucose measuring device. i was wearing gloves while measuring glucose level from a 40 year old married man with two kids who seemed healthy and unsuspicious for hiv.

Avatar m tn Is this the pen sticking in your leg thing? If you mean a CBC (complete blood count) as a regular blood panel, no you can't determine HCV from that. An HCV antibody test would be a good start.

Avatar f tn I have type II, and I haven't been able to get my blood sugar below 200 for weeks. Is it possible that my insulin has gone bad? It looks ok, but I did get 4 bottles at once so it's been in the fridge for a while before using. My doctor has me increasing the dose in increments but the test results seem to just go up. I just tested 433 and I have been pretty strict with my diet (which is really hard for a fatty like me).
Avatar n tn 2 months ago I went for a same hour HIV test (i tested negative). After waiting I went into the room and had my first finger of my writing hand "pin pricked" by the doctor and blood drawn out. I went back out to wait for the results, and within a minute I was handed a biro pen and a form to fill out some details. I think the pin prick had stopped bleeding by this point, but I don't know if it had healed.
943601 tn?1245484695 Last month, I am a diabetic and was diagnosed with HSP. I now taking very high doses of predisone 60mg bid. This dosage has been reduced to 50mg bit. I am finely down to 40mg bid. I am very concerned about damage to my week kidneys due to the very high blood glucose levels > 400 at times. I have been controlling it with a sliding scale using Humalog Quick Pen. How fast does the ill-reversable damage set in? My medicine has been change from enailapril to coreg. Biopsity shows nothing.
