Diabetes information display

Common Questions and Answers about Diabetes information display


Avatar n tn I have also read that some diabetic children seem to at times display a discoloration on their necks that looks very much like just neck dirt, but won't wash out. If this is what you are seeing, it is not a cause for alarm. Just an odd phenomenon that some diabetic children seem to show and that researchers are just beginning to test. At age 12, some inflammation such as beginnings of acne could be showing up as red or inflamed areas, too.
Avatar n tn Some studies seem to show that some type 1 diabetic people who have suffered from repeated hypoglycemic episodes (low blood sugar episodes) can display temporary or perhaps some permanent loss of memory function. There is a good article on the following website about some studies on this issue, using both young and older type 1 patients. If you can skim through the technical language, it does offer some good information: http://diabetes.diabetesjournals.
Avatar n tn ones and hypo ideas) and ideas for medic-alert bracelets (eg making the bracelet yourself, and attaching the medic-alert to it), how to educate your friends about diabetes (including ideas like inviting the friends over to your house so that they can see how it fits into your life), how to educate your teachers about diabetes, how to explain to other people the difference between type 1 and type 2 diabetes...

Avatar f tn I have recently been diagnosed with Gastroparesis. I do not have diabetes and I do have Graves disease. Although I am in remission right now and my thyroid has been normal for 3 months so far. I have also had problems with my ears for years, feeling very cold, fevers of unknown origin, rapid onset of extreme pain in finger, foot, arm leg at different times, heart palps. As I add up all of these things I wonder if they can all actually from one disorder.
601801 tn?1225595945 Here is an article from pee on a stick . com: Most HPT's are pretty straightforward. They detect hCG (human chorionic gonadotropin, the "pregnancy hormone") in urine. If hCG is present, 2 pink lines (or a blue + sign) appear in the results window. If hCG is not present (or present in such a teeeeeeeeny tiny amount that it's not yet detectable), only 1 pink line (or a blue - sign) appear in the results window.
469720 tn?1388149949 Ask for information about your medicines in terms you can understand—both when your medicines are prescribed and when you receive them. What is the medicine for? How am I supposed to take it, and for how long? What side effects are likely? What do I do if they occur? Is this medicine safe to take with other medicines or dietary supplements I am taking? What food, drink, or activities should I avoid while taking this medicine? 6.

Avatar n tn Was kind of not taking care of myself at the time working too much plus i got sick the very next day. That following week i had sex with someone else, which display no reference to my sexual history i've slept with four girls my whole life. Both of them i used a condom and the sex didnt last very long between me and the second girl because i was sick at the time and had like no energy so there wasnt that much contact.
469720 tn?1388149949 One of the factors that may also play a role is the ongoing neglect and lack of understanding that the male dominated medical industry continues to display for women. Frankly we just have not done a good job in meeting women's healthcare needs in the public or private sector 1) Women represent more than 50% of the U.S. population and thus, companies have the potentially to as much as double their target market just by paying attention here.
1310633 tn?1430227691 (Reuters) - Packaged foods sold in the United States would display calorie counts more prominently and include the amount of added sugar under a proposal to significantly update nutritional labels for the first time in 20 years as health officials seek to reduce obesity and combat related diseases such as diabetes. The Food and Drug Administration said on Thursday its proposal would also ensure that the amount of calories listed per serving reflects the portions that people typically eat.
764912 tn?1322715443 ) Usually my husband is supportive, he does so much. Sometimes I get upset because I have given him information from the Invisible disease website to help him understand some things that are said can discourage me. For example, I think he thinks I will give up, because he is like a cheerleader ( no offense that can be good) like when I can't do something because of my hand tremors he says "oh yeah you can do it.
Avatar n tn Another doctor did blood tests for Lupis, diabetes and many other disorders. He takes genortopin for pituitary dwarfism as well as synthroid for hypothyroidism. His endocrynologist tested him and everything was fine. He has taken both of those for 7 years, so he does not think it is a reaction to them, we have not changed the dose in a year. Another neurosurgeon wants to redo the MRI to see if the chiari malformation that showed up when he was little it causing anything.
Avatar n tn It usually happens at that time, and only when I'm at home. Only my legs display these symptoms. They do feel itchy sometimes after a shower, but not as severe (almost like an after-effect of whatever bothered me at night). I am a deep sleeper, and this itch on both my legs doesn't fail to wake me up night after night, month after month. I use moisturizer hoping that it helps (it doesn't). I recently came back from a visit to the US, and I can say I never woke up from itching while there.
Avatar n tn I looked up the Hydroxyzine pill to see if there would be any unusual reaction with the other combo meds that we take and I also take an AD; amitriptyline. The information about Ataras says that it is given for itching and not only for itching but for people who have anxiety and either itch or anxiety from itching (this was my catagory) and that it also helps other medications work better.
Avatar n tn Since he cannot visit the lab every time he feels these symptoms, I am asking for information on what kind of lab test instrument would be suitable for home use, as he also is concerned about 'popping extra K' without verifiying need at that exact time.
649848 tn?1534637300 I caution everyone with a medical condition to consult with their doctor prior to trying any alternative solutions. Likewise, if you are on meds (whether it be thyroid, diabetes, blood pressure, etc), please be aware that even “natural” solutions can have side effects and may not be compatible with your meds and you could have adverse affects.
Avatar f tn No idea why this thread showed up in the Diabetes forum, but maybe WaveRider's onto something with the LADA/1.5 information. Thanks so much for the help.
Avatar f tn Where did you get this information? The vagus nerve does not regenerate particularly better than any other nerve in the body as far as I know (and that is not very well). As for not getting damaged, it is fairly internal, but its long length would argue toward it having relatively many possible injury locations. ---- As for quillswriting's heart rate variability, At heart rates under 100, the vagus nerve is MOSTLY controlling the rate.
572651 tn?1531002957 She and colleagues recruited 22 MS patients and 22 age-matched healthy controls for their study, in which participants underwent visual and gait testing under a variety of lighting conditions. The vision testing involved low-contrast Sloan charts, which display letters that appear increasingly faded as one reads down. Participants also underwent optic coherence tomography scans to evaluate optic nerve morphology.
535822 tn?1443980380 It fills your belly better than any other snack on the planet while decreasing your risks of cardiovascular disease and diabetes, smoothing your skin, pumping you full of antioxidants, and helping you stay thin. In fact, a study from Georgia Southern University found that eating a high-protein, high-fat snack like nuts can increase your calorie burn for more than 3 hours. Think about that.
Avatar n tn That's not to say I don't appreciate the information or that I would choose to ignore the latest information even if it appears somewhat negative. I just view it with a jaundiced eye - if you know what I mean.
Avatar n tn On my MRI report it said that the proximal intracranial portions of the carotid and vertebrobasilar circulation display normal flow void. Is this the information you were questioning?...or is there another test to provide more information regarding the arteries you discussed?? I have seen about 6 ENTs, 5 of them thought I had Meniere's, which I was pretty sure I didn't have..so I saw a Meniere's specialist, who evaluated me and agreed I did not have Meniere's.
Avatar m tn Increased frequency of micturition can occur due to infection, diabetes, tumors in the bladder or prostrate, STD, excess intake of fluid, pregnancy, use of diuretics, stones in the urinary tract etc. Reduced bladder capacity, masses in the bladder can also cause increased frequency and incomplete voiding. I would suggest that you repeat a urine analysis with culture and cystometry with cystoscopy done.Get a check of blood sugars also. Consult your urologist and discuss the possible options.
Avatar n tn we also did a 24 hour glucose test in the hospital and there were no findings of diabetes??Did you ever get any more information on what is going on with your daughter? We went to CHOP endocrinology and locally and they didnt find anything!!
Avatar m tn I'd be more inclined to believe them if the CDC changed there guidelines as well, but they still say three months is conclusive. 6 weeks / 3 months / 6 months, the information needs and overhaul, if oral is not a risk the CDC should say so. I understand the doctors work from unique first hand experience & a great deal of knowledge.
Avatar f tn The HEPATITIS FORUM (this forum) will now become the place to post medical questions and comments pertaining to hepatitis information and research ONLY. Please give the new forum a chance to get up and running and then send us your comments and suggestions regarding the changes! Thanks for your patience and continued support!! Happy Friday!
Avatar m tn //www.floridavets.org/information/hepatitisc.asp Check the 4th paragraph. My doctor is one of the more respected Hep C docs in the country he has told me that it can have a dormancy phase. I guess we all can believe what ever makes us feel comfortable.
3197167 tn?1348972206 There is an introductory speaker at the beginning because the keynote speaker is at a seminar of some kind. I was GLUED to it. I learned SO MUCH. This information has just been published in the last 3 to 5 yrs so some treatment centers and outpatient facilities are most likely using it. But what about all of us that don't know about it? Every single person, addict, non-addict, wife, husband, parent, that loves an addict or IS an addict HAS to watch this.
Avatar f tn James Jones from the CDC. This presentation was given to OB/GYN physicians because they wanted information on CFS. I couldn't believe what I saw after I watched this video ! In my opinion, this CDC physician did a below average job. No where does he mention that many fibro and CFS patients have fibroids, low vitamin D levels, osteopenia and abnormal hormone levels. I am embarrassed by this.
