Avatar n tn I’m descended from at least three generations of people who developed Type 2 diabetes early (in their thirties and forties) and died of it early (in their forties and fifties). My entire adult life (I am now 40) I’ve worked really hard to prevent it developing – I’m a fitness fanatic, with a healthy weight and an excellent diet. Despite all this, my annual check-ups have now indicated that I have “prediabetes” or “impaired glucose tolerance”.

Avatar f tn Dear Doctor, Can burning sore mouth and tongue be caused by a nerve problem from taking Mepron and Zithromax together for 3 weeks? I was treated for Lyme and Babesia 8 months ago and this is the time my painful burning type mouth and tongue started. I have ruled out gastritis, B vitamiin deficiencies and low zinc. I am also going through Menapause, too. My taste has almost dimished, too.
Avatar f tn Magnesium is necessary for both the action of insulin and the manufacture of insulin and a deficiency is linked to insulin resistance, pre diabetes and diabetes. Only 0.3% of magnesium is in blood serum so at a cellular level you could be very deficient. Magnesium is also the most important co factor for vitamin D absorption and all the major minerals (calcium, potassium, sodium) are dependent on magnesium being present in order to function.

Avatar f tn The copper level was perfectly in the middle of the reference range. Zinc, Manganese, Boron, Magnesium, and Molybdenum were all within ref range, but were found to be in the lower part of the ref range. The calcium level was within ref range, but on the higher end, too. Unfortunately, the test panel did not include testing for iodine or cobalt. I'm 28 that's a Type 1 Diabetic too as you might remember. Last year, my doc ran a test last year on my B12 serum, which was in excess of 1800.

Avatar f tn improved mood (apparently low zinc levels have been linked to depression and ADHD) and increased libido (there are studies backing that too, look it up). So zinc sulfate (sulphate) will probably cure your warts, improve your mood, and make you horny. Cure = found.

Headache discomfort usually comes in morning and/or evening.
Avatar n tn Some people experience it as fight or anger. The following may help. My family has been drug free and anxiety and depression free for almost 2 yrs now since stay off the sugar as best we can. If you are a sugar craver. A glucose test is not necessary. A simple test can be just eating an orange after not eating for awhile a see if 20 min. after eating the orange you feel hunger pangs. If so then you probably a reactive hypoglycemic. Good Luck and God Bless.
Avatar m tn I also learned about the Vitamin D and also diabetes or insulin resistance and how it could help me get to SVR. Without all of those people talking about it back then I might not have gotten to UND much less SVR. Perhaps we are now the people who should discuss as HR and Gauf did back then. The probiotics have helped me quite a bit since finishing tx. I have suggested to people with pain, cramps that they could try calcium and magnesium. It has helped me quite a bit.
Avatar n tn Feel much better already and that was two hours ago I bought them both. Also bought a Cal-Mag-Zinc for later to take before sleep and will be munching on spinach later and making some guacamole to restore glutathione. I always change my diet, but I havent had much bread as I think I have an allergy to wheat. Forgot to keep taking B vitamins for missing vitamins. Good luck! There is always a cure! Just keep researching and trying different things. Stay hopeful.
Avatar m tn Been taking zinc, vitamin D and no B-complex. Seeing my hepatologist on Monday who went to Amsterdam for the liver conf. Should be an interesting visit. I'm wondering if there is a way to get a Fibroscan done, just recently approved by the FDA. Other than the last Fibrosure tests, my blood numbers are seemingly ok except for somewhat elevated AST and ALT. Well, hopefully this last Fibrosure will shed some light on the state of my liver.
