Common Questions and Answers about Diabetes in us number


Avatar n tn I have been feeling tired for 3 days, there is Diabetes in the family and I am an hypertensive patient on treatment. My blood pressure was 130/90 and QBC negative and fasting blood sugar 4.9mmol/L. Why would I be feeling so tired?
Avatar n tn Proteins can also be used as energy sources. In general, aim for a balanced diet with complex carbohydrates in moderate amounts, alot of protein, limited fats, and many vegetables. Hope this answers your question.Take care.
Avatar m tn There was just a report on the news last week that statins have been linked top type II diabetes. My wife is on 80mg of Simvastatin while I'm on 20mg. Coincidence or not, we both contracted type II in recent years. I believe that the benefits pf statins outweigh the risks and have altered my eating lifestyle so to nearly exclude carbohydrates. This has enabled me to continue statin regime while keeping my fasting blood glucose levels at acceptaptable unmedicated levels.
Avatar n tn I have had my husband use Glucagon on me a number of times in the past to help me when I was severely hypoglycemic, and I truly believe it can be a real life-saver. There are GOOD drugs that when used properly help us, and there are 'bad' drugs that destroy people. Nobody with any knowledge of them would compare the two.
Avatar f tn The article I posted doesn't address or even mention interferon in association with diabetes mellitus. It addressed the association between HCV and DM specifically and found: "........Our finding of excess DM risk with HCV infection in comparison to non-infected controls is strengthened by consistency of results from both prospective and retrospective studies.
1203066 tn?1265883576 But the vases of water have only been around since around november/december 2009 after i put the central heating on more in october/november 2009. She seems fine in herself doing whats cats do best. My mum had a cat years ago who was diabetic she had to do regular urine tests out of its litter tray and she had to give it insulin. thanks for all your feedback i will contact my vets and notify on what they say. thanks again.
Avatar f tn The incidence of HCC among maintainence patients in the recent Halt-C long term trials was the same as in the contol group who had hep c but were not on maintainence therapy. Best wishes.
Avatar n tn org and let her click on the Online Diabetes Support Team link and she can ask us herself any questions she has. We will answer her questions one-on-one, and we can also offer support for those days when she feels all alone in the daily balancing act. Many folks write to us complaining that their beloved family and spouse and loved ones really cannot fully understand our lives since they watch from the outside.
920032 tn?1550683756 Your posted numbers imply readings measured in mmol/L. This standard is used in Europe not in the USA. When posting test numbers it's important to let us know which standard you are using. Makes a huge difference. Did your home test meter come with a User Guide? Most do which explains how to correctly use the meter. If not you can always Google the make and model number as most manufacturers post "How To" guides online.
Avatar n tn For many of us, a reasonable approach is to test once at a time and if that number seems reasonable (given how we feel, our exercise level, recent foods, health, etc.) to use that single number as a pretty good estimate of our number. Seems to me that "precision" can be less important. For example, if my BG is 80 and 5 minutes later my test says 95 ... I will not do anything different; similarly if a test says 300 and a retest says 330, I'd treat those 2 numbers as YIKES!!!
Avatar f tn They sent us to 'school' and taught us how to read lables and how to balance our meals to help keep glucose levels consistent. I had to test my blood a few times a day and inject insulin once a day, then twice and eventually after every meal to keep everything normal. I followed the diet to a tee and still ended up being induced a few days early because my insulin levels. BUT I delivered a healthy 6lb 10oz girl with no health concerns. It went away for me immediately after i delivered...
287071 tn?1365196113 Today I failed the 1hr in office glucose test. The target number was 141 and I was at 168. I have to go in next week for the extended test. Has anyone falied the in office test but passed the extended test?
Avatar n tn cuz i am from India, but in US now...my sister in law had her baby last year and she said that normal fasting is less than 110 and after two hour it is 140...i asked all these questions, but they had no answer for me...this is all very confusing...
Avatar n tn I'm guessing that s/he is not a diabetes specialist and that's the type of physician who should be guiding your diabetes care. Specialists might be called endocrinologist or diabetologist. None of us here is a physician, but we're long-time diabetics or care-givers for diabetic children. You didn't mention if you've been diagnosed with Type 1 or Type 2, and the treatment options vary for these types. Your instincts are good, Candikane.
Avatar f tn I have a family of 4 I also cook for, so this means a change in eating habbits for us all. But I'm gonna try my best and make sure I'm giving my baby a healthy start. I hope the best for you and your baby, and ask tons of questions!!!
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 If oatmeal is not your thing, many cereals are made with oat flour or grains, including Cheerios in a number of flavors. Plain Cheerios have about half the carbs as the sweetened flavors, but if you cut the amount in half, the flavors are just as effective for lowering cholesterol. Also, I have read that recent studies indicate that adding cinnamon to a daily diet seems to lower cholesterol, so I suggest adding a dash of cinnamon to that oatmeal or even to your morning coffee.
Avatar n tn I do strongly suggest you find a nutritionist somewhere, if even for one visit if you have to travel far to see one (just call and let them know your situation and most nutritionists are willing to work with you, in my experience.) In the meantime, here are some suggestions that worked for me, and some web resources I found helpful: Go low-carb for a while. You're avoiding extra sugar which is great, but most carbs break down into sugar, so a lower carb diet really helps control blood sugar.
Avatar f tn And although those are long hours on the weekend, I would love to do that...get 40 hours in in 2 days and be done with it. How perfect is that. Good to see you checking in, and take care!!
4105307 tn?1369535032 She lives on in memory and a gold kitty charm hangs on the mirror in our motorhome. She traveled with us for years while we were full time RVers. Our other kitty was so lost for about 6 months without her. At the right time a new friend of ours, a vet, had a lost kitty that needed a home. This new young member of our family has his own lively personality and keeps the other one more active.
Avatar f tn This is my third pregnancy and it's been one thing after another with this one spotting for a month, morning sicknesses for three months and now this. In just ready to get my life back to normal. I'm still doing the diet plan the doctor gave me cause I love my daughter but I just have no clue how much more I can take.
Avatar n tn While I have never heard of headaches being related to any kind of reaction to insulin, I know from personal experience that horrible headaches sometimes accompany low blood sugar levels. While they sometimes go away when the glucose levels return to normal after drinking some juice, I have found that sometimes they stay with me for hours after a low blood sugar spell. So my first question would be: has your son experienced any low blood sugar episodes at all on days when he has headaches?
1469903 tn?1286650297 The absolute lack of insulin, usually secondary to a destructive process affecting the insulin producing beta cells in the pancreas, is the main disorder in type 1 diabetes. In type 2 diabetes, there also is a steady decline of beta cells that adds to the process of elevated blood sugars. Essentially, if someone is resistant to insulin, the body can, to some degree, increase production of insulin and overcome the level of resistance.
Avatar m tn It is possible that there are ILADS-leaning MDs in the UK but they stay very very quiet to avoid trouble with the NHS. Same thing seems to happen in Canada, and also in some states in the US. You could try looking at the ILADS website and search there for UK or England, and I think there is also a referral function on the website that you fill in a location for and they will answer you. I also just did an online search for ilads england and found some interesting things.
117065 tn?1280878007 The reason is that fat cells are insulin resistant and when a person, child or adult, has an excessive number of fat cells, insulin doesn't do its job as well to lower glucose levels. Diabetes can be the result. Type 2 diabetes in children is not common, but your family member does ask a good question, considering the thirst and frequent urination. If I were this child's parent, I believe that I would ask his doctor to check his sugar levels just to be safe.
Avatar f tn Type 1 diabetes in children usually comes on very quickly with consistently high numbers, so it is, indeed, puzzling. Was she on any kind of medication recently that could account for sudden rise in blood sugar? At any rate, an appointment with a pediatric endo is the way to go. I'm sure they told you if her numbers get high again and she experiences flu-like symptoms and vomiting to bring her to the ER. Best of luck to you and let us know how it goes.
Avatar f tn htm. There is more information in this article. You can help keep that number under control by monitoring your diet cutting back on sugar as well as carbs and getting exercise. Let us know what you think.
Avatar m tn low thyroid is a common cause of hair loss, and low thyroid is also a common comorbidity with diabetes. let us know how you go.
Avatar n tn my husband has been insulin dependent for his diabetes for many years. Today his eyes are flickering and blood pressure is 112/43. Blood sugar is 16! will take them again in a minute. if this persists I will ring NHS direct.
Avatar n tn As a teen, it can be a struggle to WANT to take good care of oneself and yet that's exactly what's expected of us. I remember my childish behaviors as a teen with diabetes and am grateful I eventually saw the light. It is unlikely that your boyfriend needs a transplant; it is more likely that he needs to learn to do frequent blood tests & to adjust his insulin based on those numbers and his exercise, food, stress levels, etc.
