Common Questions and Answers about Diabetes and obesity journals


Avatar f tn One third of children with VACTERL are born to diabetic mothers (I am not diabetic), and no one knows why. I suspect it is because of the association between diabetes, obesity, and elevated estrogen. I know one other woman who also did soy isoflavones and whose son had similar birth defects. We were both on doses that are a little higher than what someone would typically take. We could just be the anecdotes-coincidences. There are no genetic causes of the syndrome in my child's case.

Avatar n tn I was prescribed Topamax along with an appetite suppressant (Adipex) for weight loss a bit over a year ago and stopped taking them after two and a half months. I did not lose all of the weight I had wanted to, but most of it. I had gained 55 pounds while on Paxil over the course of two and a half years. By taking a combination of the two medicines, I lost 22 pounds the first month, 10 pounds the second month, and 8 pounds the first half of the third month.

Avatar dr m tn Instead, they are treated for the signs and symptoms of obstructive sleep apnea, such as weight gain, depression, hypothyroidism, diabetes, high blood pressure and heart disease.

Avatar n tn Just a thought, Phizer, Merick, Glaxo and so on make much much more selling drugs to lots of overweight people who have diabetes, allergies, gout, heart problems, liver and skin diseases and, oh, the list just goes on and on. It is in the best interest of the drug manufacturers to keep people sick and overweight. What happens when half the nation stops taking both over-the-counter drugs and prescription drugs because they are finally healthy? The economy will plunge!
Avatar f tn In particular avoid High Fructose Corn Syrup. HFCS is linked to obesity, diabetes and heart disease. Make sure your vitamin B12 and magnesium are optimal.

I won't get into the research here, but the results in examining different factors not ordinarily considered in medicine, are striking. Diet is just one of these diverse factors. Go to the wikipedia article on the book, then buy yourself a copy for $5 on amazon.com: "The China Study" by T.
Avatar m tn increasing exercise and changing diet, said Dr. Stephanie Abrams, a liver and obesity specialist at Texas Children's Hospital. "The problem is that we aren't changing society in favor of becoming lean." The scope of the disease has only been realized in recent years. Just a handful of cases were reported in medical journals in the 1980s, and in the past, many adult patients were thought to be lying when they denied drinking alcohol.
Avatar f tn • Aging • Heart disease • Lupus • Arthritis • Alzheimer’s/dementia • Chronic fatigue syndrome • Diabetes • Cancer • Depression • Menopause • Obesity • Insomnia This is quite a list, and I don’t think that DHEA is the answer to all of these problems all of the time. But it is an important aspect of general good health to maintain optimal levels. Instead of checking cholesterol levels, doctors should be checking DHEA levels on a routine basis, especially in patients over 50.
Avatar f tn Most are not in imminent danger, Ludwig said. But some have obesity-related conditions such as Type 2 diabetes, breathing difficulties and liver problems that could kill them by age 30. It is these kids for whom state intervention, including education, parent training, and temporary protective custody in the most extreme cases, should be considered, Ludwig said.
1296191 tn?1280703473 Despite the emphasis in cardiovascular disease prevention over the years, the worldwide epidemic of HF continues to expand because of the aging population and rising incidence and prevalence of HF risk factors such as diabetes, obesity, and cardiomyopathy (Boyle,2009; Hunt et al.,2005).

Virtually all the flu around now is the pandemic H1N1 virus. The H1N1 virus also predominated in the recent winter months of the Southern Hemisphere, which typically spreads north as we have our winter.

233488 tn?1310696703 Running marathons for decades is an excessive amount of exercise, predisposing to an increased coronary artery plaque buildup despite favorably altering many risk factors such as weight, blood pressure and risk of diabetes. A more moderate dose of exercise is a better strategy for promoting long-term cardiovascular health and durability. An example of a sensible and time efficient ‘exercise prescription’ is shown in figure 1.

Avatar m tn It's very much like our group, with some very smart people providing references to journals and studies and offering some excellent advice. Lest you think I'm being a bit nutty for using insulin as a preventative, I've met too many people who followed the rules and waited for an A1c of 7 or 8 before taking measures. Many, many of them had already suffered diabetic damage, including one guy I heard about who, just diagnosed, had to have a toe amputated. Don't want that. Best of luck.
Avatar f tn People in failing health with cirrhosis and diabetes and cancers towing the corporate line about how non-additive based foods are just a bunch of bull and how company's lying to us about the safety of their product is just a bunch of liberal conspiracy theory nutballs.

Avatar m tn In the face of chronic liver injury -- due to excess fat, chronic viral hepatitis or alcohol abuse, for example -- stellate cells become activated and launch an inflammatory and fibrotic cascade that eventually results in the build-up of collagen scar tissue in the liver.
Avatar f tn HCG is controversial, may be harmful, and is PROVEN no more effective than placebo. Do your own REAL research in REAL medical journals and you will find this has not changed in many years.
163305 tn?1333672171 I think I've stated in one of these threads that coffee is more times than not linked with diabetes, so really no disagreement if one has diabetes and if that's what a patient's plan calls for. However, not in every case as per the study referenced below with type II diabetes. But in any case, given the recent paper (and others similar) in AASLD, I think those of us with an increased risk of HCC (liver cancer) should pause before putting down that cup of Java.
976897 tn?1379171202 The nearest neighbours to the UK, they consume much more saturated fat, smoke more, exercise less and have as much obesity. They have the same average cholesterol level as the British and the same average blood pressure. So with all that fat, they should have higher rates of heart attacks right? wrong, they have around a quarter of the number of occurrences in the UK.
148588 tn?1465782409 While obesity is a risk factor for NAFLD, there is a very high prevalence in individuals with type 2 diabetes mellitus and progression to advanced fibrosis and mortality increases in older patients.

Avatar m tn Gosh ed34, I am disappointed in your response. I do believe you give good advice regarding the mechanical issues involving stents and bypass, but on the issue of dietary changes you seem to be out of touch.

Avatar f tn Hi All! Need some suggestions/advice. I am a 54 yr old woman who has been spotting/bleeding for the past 3 1/2 years. EVERY DAY! Only went away for 5 months 2 1/2 yrs ago, then on again. Just had an endometrial biopsy at the "clinic" (charity care), and they say I have this complex atypical endometrial hyperplasia. They are telling me I need a hysterectomy, but before I can get it I need a hysteroscopy first. Telling me it is pre-cancerous, but that 40-55% is usually cancerous.
725350 tn?1318684068 All of this has been proven, he told me, in many studies and medical journals and such. TO ME, I feel like because I can admit and accept that I have a 'chronic disease' is liberating, not condeming. Had it not been a disease that kept me out for so long, it would mean that my addiction was just "me doing what I want". But at some point I wanted to stop, but couldn't. So I know it had to be something deeper. So what do you think? Is it a disease that can be arrested?
Avatar m tn There is a biological component associated with diabetes and the cardiovascular system.... and my notes indicate there is evidence supported by lab experiments and general knowledge of fluid dynamics (or hemodynamics) that more than one occlusion in the same vessel prevents an adequate flow of blood from collaterals....may require interventional therapy.
