Avatar m tn I was diagnosed with type two diabetes about 18 months ago and feel I can easily accept the changes to diet that I need to adopt. I am controlled with metformin and that is where the problems came in. The good news about metformin is that you cannot hypo so it is fairly risk free. The bad news is what it does to your digestion. I could tolerate the cheap stuff at all, suffering appalling stomach cramps and enough wind to run a small power station.
Avatar n tn I started the program after being referred to a dietician for problems with my blood sugar levels and she helped me realize I'd probably have diabetes in a few years if I didn't do something. That was this past spring so since June I've lost 30 lbs. I wish it were more but I'll take what I can get and I do feel better physically and emotionally. It helps a lot to get support from each other on here and I hope you keep checking in.
Avatar f tn 9. Educate yourself. Reading updates about diabetes, may it be through journals, resource community, or through reliable evident- based research portals would be very beneficial. Making this a habit makes you more accepting of your illness and its complications. It could also aids you in finding some remedies in your everyday problems in relation to DM.
Avatar f tn By June I had felt as if I was up to 75% of my original health before my illness, by personal opinion with the occasional pain while attempting to work out. Mid june my dyshidrotic eczema spread to my hands and became unbearably scratchy so I sought treatment. I was given an anti fungal/coritcosteriod cream that cured most of it but switched to a pure coritcosteriod cream for consistent treatment.
Avatar m tn “can you clean them naturally with good health habits after there has been build up?” I am neither an MD nor an MS but I have undergone bypass surgery of one artery and 2 veins on 29/12/2009. Then I studied literature on life after open heart surgery. I came to the following conclusions . 1..De-emergencize life 2.No smoking. I have not smoked from the day I was admitted to the operating hospital. 3.Minimize the oily foods 4.
Avatar n tn I don't stop using the leaves until it is completely gone. As seattlemom said ..if you have Diabetes or some other health problem you might think about talkng to your doctor about this new developement. Especially if you are taking any kind of drug, your body may be reacting to it in a bad way.
Avatar f tn I'm scared about the tubes too, getting them tied as well. And just pretty much my health and babies with the diabetes and all there's more risk. With my two year old I got gestational diabetes and I was so sick the last weeks of pregnancy my sugar was not controlled at all so he was born hypoglycemic, and almost 11 lbs, so he had to stay in the nicu for about a week till they controlled his sugar. Tough times.
Avatar f tn - No diabetes. - Thyroid test came back fine. - No other health issues except mild ADD/ADHD. I can actually get to sleep fine so this is not a problem. My doctor doesn't know what to do. I saw an ENT specialist and they don't know what it is. My life is a misery at the moment, I can't work most days, and as I am self employed, I have no income on those days and I struggle financially. I have also spend a fair amount of money on bedding, etc to try and improve the problem. Not good.
Avatar f tn Hello Christinerae, Welcome to the Senior Health Forum. I am glad that you found us and took the time to post. However I am sorry that you are experiencing these symptoms. I am sorry to inform you that there are no physicians on this forum. I am not an expert so my comments should not be viewed as medical advice or a medical opinion. I wonder if your condition is related to a circulatory problem? These conditions and their symptoms can become more prominent in the winter months.
201897 tn?1245845934 I'm a 50 y/o female in relatively good health. I have fibromyalgia and thyroid issues (non-autoimmune) but that's about it. I'm overweight but not obese (via BMI). I stay hydrated. No diabetes, no high blood pressure. My GP's office has one of those on-line portal things where patients can view their test results. I decided to take a peek and was looking at some past testing. I noticed that in my blood work from February of this year the eGFR-AA was low (53) and my creatinine was high (1.09).
Avatar m tn It may be difficult to tell how long will it take for ESRF to occur since many factors such as presence of co-morbid conditions like hypertension or diabetes,your medical history and symptoms as well as your over-all health. Regular follow-up with your attending physician, regular blood work, healthy diet and positive healthy outlook are highly recommended. Take care and warm regards.
233488 tn?1310696703 When you put it in perspective, diabetes kills people (and early), myopia does not. Diabetes is a life full of horrific complications involving the kidneys, heart, nerves and even the eyes. The media paints diabetes as a relatively benign and treatable condition, but that is very, very far from the truth.

Avatar n tn About 3 months ago my husband was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. Recently he started having a lot of joint pain. Now his ankles and feet are swelling. His sugar levels are doing great. We have been to the doctor and he has had several test done. Everything is coming back good. Has anyone had these same symptoms? He is taking Metformin and I am wondering if this has anything to do with this.
Avatar n tn //www.fda.gov/cder/warn/cyber/2005/CL178e.pdf" target=_blank>FDA says</a> that there is no evidence that the ads for Diabeticine violate the law because they are not correct. For example, it states that Diabeticine is 64% effective for reversing type 1. That in itself is a ludicrous claim. If it were valid, there would be a couple million families buying as much of this as they can. It is also claimed that Diabeticine increased the number of islet cells.
Avatar n tn I'm sure you've heard of that carpal tunnel syndrome thing, which can be caused not only by the typical way, which is overuse of a hand or hands, but also in diabetes! Well, in a diabetic, particularly one who has had diabetes for a long time, normally their feet and legs will bother them first, then at some later time, it can indeed progress to a hand, and/or arm, on one side or both.
Avatar f tn My father is 63,, overall decent health, no history of cancer, has had asthma all of his life and lung issues but for the most part, it is under control. He has been taking breathing treatments most of his life, takes Singulair, etc. Slightly overweight but nothing serious. He does have anxiety problems, as do I but hes managed to deal with it with some medication. Lately, his prostate has been severely inflamed, Urologist has upped his dosage of Flomax but he is still miserable.
1283391 tn?1271521588 Hello, I am desperately trying to find out what is going on with my health. For the past year I have been suffering with the following symptoms.. Burning and tingling all over my body specially in my head...
Avatar m tn They can have several causes related to multiple health issues. It sounds like neuropathy which is a type of nerve pain. It can be treated with medication to relieve the symptoms but it needs to be evaluated to be sure the cause and best course of treatment Hope you feel better.
Avatar n tn I have had type I diabetes for 33 years (since age 13). I've never had any complications until the last two years. Since then, I've had trigger finger (left) which required surgery, frozen shoulder (left), pain in hip (left), tinnitus in ear (left) after extreme pain behind the ear (the tinnitus has continued for months now), and I've also torn my calf muscle (left) followed by a torn right calf muscle 5 months later (both tears were so loud that an entire room of people heard).
Avatar f tn I know how GREAT it is when they are GREAT and how bad it is when they DON'T work. I lost my husband to Diabetes and I KNOW how DEBILITATING that disease is. I'm so sorry that you are haviing to battle it!! REMEMBER that I'm NO Doctor, HOWEVER, I have a feeling that what you are going thru at night may VERY well have to do with you Diabetes as My Husband dealt with this each day and night!! It was caused by his Diabetic Neuropathy.
Avatar n tn Hi, your cat has all the symptoms of diabetes and/or kidney disease. These are very common in kitties over 7 yrs old. Do an internet search. There are some very reliable sites out there, especially Cornell University's web site. They have a veterinary school w/ some info for us pet owners. They are reliable and wouldn't put false info out there. I hate to tell ya this, but this condition is deadly and she really does need immediate treatment and most likely insulin injections.
Avatar m tn This appeared out of the blue in June 2012 (I say out of the blue because I don't take drugs, don't smoke, don't have diabetes, didn't have chemotherapy, and didn't take medicines for long periods of time -besides 1 week of cyprofloxacin in March 2012). I had a sexual exposure in February 2012 with bizarre symptoms exactly 2 weeks later that lead me to think on HIV (a cervical swollen lymph node, neck stiffness and then an urinary track infection), but I tested negative several times.
Avatar n tn So to update on my husbands condition. We have found that he has dilated Arteries not narrowing Arteries, as well as so much Placque they are not able to do Stints. They had him on the Maximum dose of Lipitor but just had to change it on Wednesday due to being unable to constant nausea & vomiting. He is a Type 2 Diabetic, but the Lipitor made his Blood Sugars go out of control.
Avatar m tn The problem with the change of diet is I did it, had loads of sugar then I started having symptoms of Diabetes (constant thirst etc) turns out I don't have diabetes, but I have the type of blood that is most likely to get it.
Avatar f tn I would guess that if she does not currently display any other symptoms she may have dodged the complications that can come for an abscess tooth. Diabetes can affect cardiac status as can tooth and gum disease. This would be my first concern. You may want to ask you mom to allow you to accompany her on her next PCP visit and address this issue with him/her. Get involved in your mom's medical care/visits if she will allow it. She is lucky to have you concerned and involved in her health care.
Avatar n tn But there are a new generation of antipsychotics, the glutamate antagonists, in study that cannot cause tardive dyskinesia, weight gain or diabetes and promote a full recovery. I am on glycine which is in Phase II FDA study. My pyschopharmocologist will be publishing my results which have been identified and confirmed by research studies and I will post the links but in the meantime keep track of new medications that are coming out. This is a good link that updates itself: http://www.
