645800 tn?1466864555 I would highly recommend you ask that it be added to your labwork next time you have blood drawn. The American Diabetes Association has excellent information on how this test works.
Panda eating properly and exercising regularly are the best solutions for improving blood sugars and controlling diabetes. For lots more information try www.diabetes.org (American Diabetes Association) Good luck!
Avatar f tn Please see your Doctor who can outline for you a program of diet, exercise and medication that the American Diabetes Association recommends. Diabetes can be controlled for a lifetime, if you are willing to abide by all the recommended treatments. The above note from caregive list otc meds not found to be effective to treat Diabetes.
Avatar m tn Hi and thanks for using the forum. The American Diabetes Association has a great website with a lot of information that may be helpful for you. Also, medhelp has a lot of resources as well as communities where you can meet/talk with other people who have type 2 diabetes. You should ask your doctor where he or she wants your blood sugars to be. Typically, you want to keep your bloodsugars as close to normal as possible- this means a fasting blood sugar of less than 100mg/dl.
Avatar n tn In general you don't really need to worry about gestational diabetes since, according to the American Diabetes Association, only about 4% of pregnant women are diagnosed with gestational diabetes during their pregnancy. If you do develop gestational diabetes however, don't panic, but do work with your doctor to make sure you're taking good care of yourself and follow the guidelines given.
Avatar n tn //www.diabetes.org/home.jsp (American Diabetes Association - which specializes in education about diabetes, particularly Adult onset (Type 2). Bottom line is that you should make an appointment with your regular physician to discuss your symptoms and undergo whatever diagnostic tests s/he recommends. Many things can cause some of the symptoms you describe, so it's best to bring your doctor as complete information as you can.
231441 tn?1333896366 "Does anyone know why they apply more stringent standards for diabetes during pregnancy than they do outside pregnancy?" Here's what I found that may help answer your question. http://www.musckids.com/health_library/diabetes/hyponew.htm http://diabetes.taragana.net/pre-pregnancy-diabetes-can-lead-to-birth-defects-in-newborn/ http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/pregnancy-and-diabetes/DA00042 http://www.diabetes.org/type-1-diabetes/sex-and-pregnancy/before-pregnancy.jsp http://tinyurl.
Avatar f tn My obgyn office says I have gestational diabetes, even though my blood sugars (tested for a week because I refused the glucose test) are within range of non-diabetic pregnant women according to the American Diabetes Association. I don't shoot up and down either, my sugars are fairly steady. Has this happened to anyone else and what did you do?
Avatar n tn Otherwise, you can go to the American Diabetes Association website and they have a whole list of every diabetic camp in the US. So there might be one close to where ever you live! And unfortunately they are kinda expensive because you're also paying for the insulin they provide and other medical stuff. When I was a camper the program I did was roughly $500. But the local Lions Club paid for me to go.
Avatar n tn Corn is mostly carb. You can check out the American Diabetes Association website--they have great nutrition information including meal planning tips you can use. Also keep an open mind that you may also need additional medication to control your sugars while you eat a balanced diet. Try to get daily exercise as this will also help tremendously. Good luck and take care!
Avatar m tn I like to use a resource from the American Diabetes Association (ADA), which is primarily focused on education and has lots of info about pre-diabetes and Type 2 diabetes. I believe they have affiliates worldwide, so there may be offices near you, too. According to their website, a FASTING (first thing in the morning - no food/beverage after midnight; testing 6-8 hours later), <100 is a normal reading; 100-126 can indicate pre-diabetes; and >126 indicates diabetes.
Avatar n tn The first link will be the show transcript. I'd contact dLife and the American Diabetes Association. dLife can likely give you more information about that sergeant's case, and the ADA has legal resources to help you. It is possible to do fight the discharge, but it won't be easy. Good luck and thank you for your service!
Avatar m tn I know what you need. Its the American Diabetes Association Guide. It's one of the most comprehensive and well organised books out there: http://ebookbees.
Avatar n tn Our specialty here on this Forum is type ! diabetes, not type 2. Perhaps you should check out the American Diabetes Association at www.ada.org -- there is more emphasis on type 2 diabetes on that website and they may be able to better answer your very good question than we can.
1469903 tn?1286650297 At present, the American Diabetes Association does not recommend general screening of the population for type 1 diabetes, though screening of high risk individuals, such as those with a first degree relative (sibling or parent) with type 1 diabetes should be encouraged. Type 1 diabetes tends to occur in young, lean individuals, usually before 30 years of age, however, older patients do present with this form of diabetes on occasion.
Avatar m tn While men in the top category of egg consumption, meaning they ate eggs almost daily, were at increased type 2 diabetes risk, this increase wasn't statistically significant, meaning it could have been due to chance. Other studies that have linked eggs to diabetes have found an association with very high consumption, the researchers note, generally for eating seven or more eggs a week.
Avatar m tn Either test can be used to diagnose pre-diabetes or diabetes. The American Diabetes Association recommends the FPG because it is easier, faster, and less expensive to perform. With the FPG test, a fasting blood glucose level between 100 and 125 mg/dl signals pre-diabetes. A person with a fasting blood glucose level of 126 mg/dl or higher has diabetes. In the OGTT test, a person's blood glucose level is measured after a fast and two hours after drinking a glucose-rich beverage.
116881 tn?1189759423 less than 100mg/dL After eating: less than 140 mg/dL The American Diabetes Association also has some good information on their site www.diabetes.org. Take care.
Avatar m tn If this is you go get tested. If not, stop worrying and test yearly. This from CurrentTV's link to the Rueter's report. "When we looked at the people in our study who had elevated symptoms of depression, they were more likely to eat more calories, they exercised less, and they were more likely to be current smokers. And as a consequence, they were also more obese," Golden, whose study was published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, said in a telephone interview.
Avatar n tn Low carb diet is absolutely the best way to manage diabetes. American Diabetes Association is now also recognizing this. By low carb we mean about 20 - 30 g of carbs per day. Protein should be adequate (can be up to 1.5g/ kg body weight), and healthy unprocessed fats (avoid vegetable oils) for energy balance. HEalthy fats include the fats that come with meats and full fat dairy, nuts, avocado etc.
Avatar n tn To find a Registered Dietitian in your area go to the American Dietetic Association website, www.eatright.org. The American Diabetic Association is a good source too for information and cook-books. Hoped that helped you.
Avatar n tn To help answer your question regarding predications on normal to prediabetes and/or prediabetes to diabetes use Google search to educate yourself on diabetes and diabetes prevention. A good place with lots of information is the ADA [American Diabetes Association] web site. Also, MedHelp has an prediabetes forum. If you look there you will see a thread on TIPS FOR DIABETES PREVENTION By nursegirl6572 Jul 01, 2012 Try reading it as the original link is provided too.
