Avatar f tn Hi, Unfortunately diabetes during pregnancy does put you at much higher risk of developing diabetes later in life. Type 1 and/or Type 2. You are not overweight and you are very physically active. But you have now had 2 readings that are higher than they should be. You are also urinating more frequently than usual. This is often a sign of diabetes and you definitely need to get checked out. You need to test fasting as soon as you wake up in the morning.
Avatar n tn Both type of diabetes are hereditary and also depends upon the levels of chance, to pass to the progeny. Some times the gene will be suppressed and the person carrying this suppressed gene becomes a career and passes it to the next filial generation. Any how take care of the diet properly.

Avatar n tn I have been diagnosed with sick sinus syndrome, graves disease, high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes. I have a pacer implanted.

1542723 tn?1294451038 I think I am past that but there is a question that pops up often in my mind and that is what is the future of the stent:- 1. Assuming I limit the risk factors can stents last a lifetime, that is could I live to my expected average lifespan without needing CABG etc? 2. How long have stents been used and is there a body of patients who have had stents for decades and what is their present condition? 3. Is it possible to see ( by medication or diet ) regression in atherosclerosis? 4.

Avatar f tn Thank you for your advice. I appreciate it and I appreciate your thoughts and prayers.. I'm sorry about your wife's loss of vision. What happened to her eye (s) ? I just scheduled the surgery for Oct. 24. I feel sick to my stomach from stress right now. Yes, I've been taking prozac everyday for over a year for anxiety and depression. I think that my body / brain are used to it and its not working as good now as it once did. No, I haven't discussed the pain med issue with my doctor.

1039200 tn?1314915608 Out of interest, can anyone tell me whether the link between atypical antipsychotics and diabetes is purely due to the extra weight gained? or do the drugs alter the way that the body metabolises carbohydrates - in other words is a normal/under weight person at risk of develop diabetes because of them? I'm not worrying about it, just curious that's all.
Avatar n tn I have been given a second chance and am taking it by watching my diet, have stopped smoking (hopefully), and am excercising more. But the rate of clogging of the stents is worrying me. And, while possibly to early to tell, but what are my chances of returning to work? To be very frank, this always happens to someone else, not yourself, and this has scared me quite seriously! Again, this is relatively recent event, and alot of my questions, while sincere, are possibly premature.
Avatar f tn Incidentally, I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes about a year ago. At the time I was pregnant, I was told it was a window into my future, as about 40 percent will get type 2 diabetes later in life.
Avatar f tn At the hospital we went to, scientists gave a little symposium about this big project and other facets of it, and about the state of diabetes research in general. I found this, and participation in the study, to be useful, in part because it put us in touch with some people doing cutting-edge work, it put us on their mailing lists, it put us on the list of people they'll contact for future studies, etc. It's a foot in the door.
Avatar n tn Hello, I have been reading a lot lately about the side effects of Seroquel. The one that concerns me the most is the diabetes. I am obese and diabetes runs in my family. I even have a brother that is insulin dependent. I am wondering if I should get off this drug? Does the diabetes continue even after the drug is discontinued? Is there another antipsychotic I could take that does not have this side effect? Thank you so much for your time.
Avatar n tn Please suggest that she talk to her doctor about this, for any allergies should be noted in her medical records for the future. Allergy tests are fairly simple and can identify precisely what the triggers are.
Avatar n tn ) Studies have shown that effective control of diabetes during the periconceptional period (refers to the period of time three months before pregnancy through the first three months of pregnancy) in women with diabetes reduces the risk for birth defects in their children. I was told that my children have a 50% higher risk of becoming diabetic than a person w/o diabetes, I was also told that babies can sometime be born with a cleft palate, heart problems. Both my kids are just fine!
Avatar n tn I'd also like to point out that many psychiatrists/psychologists overdo the medication route and don't consider things such as diet and other medical conditions that affect the mind. The medical industry tends to treat the symptoms and not the causes. In many cases, that simply does not work. I'd find another psychologist or psychiatrist that takes other things into consideration. This person you have is just not competent in the mind-body connection area of science.
Avatar n tn How do I handle these major spikes in the future?
Avatar f tn I'm scared of difficulty during Labor and Delivery and possible health problems for my baby in the future!
Avatar n tn He may have issues with accepting his life with this disease that he's never dealt with in the past and the alcohol may be his way of ignoring the diabetes. Please keep us posted on his progress and return to the Forum if we can help you in any way!
Avatar n tn Truth is, crack users either stop using it or they die because of the power of the addiction and the frightening environs & people they must deal with to feed their habit. What we learned from our experience with our child is that she became a fabulous manipulator and liar. She was very convincing and so we didn't know -- for too long -- just what she'd been doing.
Avatar n tn I do congratulate you on being able to avoid both highs and lows nowadays, and hope you can make this the norm in your life forever. Beyond this, the only very recent study that I found that was of interest to me were several studies this year that seem to indicate that there may be a danger to some people of long-term mental damage (schizophrenia and other possible mental illnesses) because cannabis alters the balance of chemicals in the brain.
Avatar n tn He knows that he has a lot of good things in his life, family who loves him to pieces, horses, dogs, cats, and a load of support for what he is going through, he is only 10, and seems to let the diabetes over shaddow the happy things he does have. I feel so bad for him, he cries at school all of the time now, and boy, that is a target for the kids at school, so he now is also dealing with names like baby and cry baby.
Avatar n tn D Now that things are getting more serious and we're doing more talking about the future I'm researching more and more on how he needs to eat and what changes there will be to my life as well as his.
