Avatar m tn Animal studies suggest that blue corn antioxidants help protect against obesity and diabetes. So the next time you’re craving tortilla chips, forget the white and yellow ones and favor the blue make sure they're baked, not fried. Sweet Potatoes Purple-skinned sweet potatoes are high in anthocyanins. Even the typical orange skinned North American sweet potato packs a punch.

Avatar m tn After this study I would think anyone with either hep-c caused Diabetes or Diabetes from natural causes should avoid Tx at all costs. I mean really if treatment can cause Diabetes just think what the affect would be with someone who already has it.
Avatar m tn Despite requests for additional Blood/Sugar monitoring during tx because of family history risk factor, nothing was done, and then a few months post tx, diagnosis of earl diabetes is made. Also, sx of tx is noted to be an increase risk for developing diabetes, which is why I was asking for increased level of testing. Now it may simply be coincidental, but I am wondering if tx not only failed me but also has messed me up worse physically.

Avatar n tn First living donor islet cell transplant successful in Japan http://www.cbc.ca/story/science/national/2005/02/03/diabetes-transplant-050203.html EDMONTON - An Edmonton doctor has led the world's first transplant of insulin-producing cells from a living donor, pioneering a surgery that could mean faster, better treatment for diabetics.

Avatar n tn Hello, It is very difficult confirming a diagnosis but it can be boils, bedsores, pediculosis, dermatitis, pemphigus, circulatory disorders or due to diabetes. What exactly it is can be confirmed only after an examination and investigations like blood tests, clotting and bleeding profile and skin biopsy. A dermatologist’s evaluation will be the best because without examination, confirmation of a diagnosis is tough. I hope it helps.
Avatar m tn I am 39 and just had a physical which only tested EKG, Barium, Chest X-ray, Creatine- slightly elevated (not by Western Standards) and a few other common diabetes checks- no blood ionic balance and the doctor didn't check me over by hand. The EKG gave a worry-some initial result but they redid it to give it B rating- A is best. Other than being a little overweight- currently 83 kg with 179cm- nothing was overly concerning.
903531 tn?1275393973 With my father's gallbladder, my mother's borderline diabetes, my need to lose weight and the over all need for my family to eat healthier I have began to explore other avenues of cooking. For years I have been intrigued by the joy of cooking and coupled with my love of Japan (especially the language) I am eager to venture into the world of Japanese cooking! Yayoi, my longest penpal and dear dear friend, was so kind to send over three authentic Japanese cookbooks for christmas this year.

It can also be due to sleep related disorders. In women it can be due to hormonal disturbances related to PCOD/menopause. This needs a comprehensive investigation including blood tests.

Avatar f tn also many people do not know that the range of B-12 in Eugopean countries and Japan start their low B-12 levels than US does. In those countries they consider anything below 500 B-12 deficiency. also from what I have read recently is that normal sugar levels may not mean that a person does not have glucose intolerance.
Avatar f tn ● Stevia has been around for a number of years. Used extensively in Japan. Very high sweet flavor. Some like it, some do not. Does not bake well. Safe for diabetics. ● Truvia contains erythritol, a natural sweetener found in fruits. Can elevate blood sugars if fruit intolerant. Baking Truvia contains sugar. ● PureVia contains dextrose, a carbohydrate found in fruits, and isomaltulose [found in honey and sugar cane juice]. Also contains glycoside.
Avatar f tn I've had bloodwork done which ruled out Lupus, RA, Lymes,diabetes. My,calcium, potassium, B12 all normal.I saw a neurologist and he noted weakness on my leftside arm and leg. I also had an EMG/NCV only on my leg because it was too painful for me to continue to my arm and that was normal. I go for an MRI tomorrow and am wondering what my next step should be if it comes out normal?
568322 tn?1370169040 WHY EVERYBODY SHOULD READ THIS....... In cellular metabolism, glucose (sugar) can be converted into fatty acids. Many viruses use these fatty acids to build their viral envelopes, or outer coatings, which help the viruses penetrate and infect human cells. When the Hepatitis C virus gets into your body, it tries to increase your metabolism so that it can reproduce more quickly by using fatty acids to build protective outer coatings which will help it penetrate and infect your liver cells.
Avatar m tn Prior research showed that the peptide builds up in the brains of those suffering with the disease. Researchers from Tohoku University in Japan wanted to find out what effect raising vitamin D levels might have on Alzheimer’s disease. To find out, they began giving injections to mice with the disease. When they took another look at the brains of the mice they were surprised to see that the vitamin appeared to be literally reversing the buildup of amyloid beta.
Avatar f tn When you say they find nothing, what tests have they carried out? Are you diabetic at all? With diabetes you can get peripheral nerve damage and this can cause numbness. In the feet and hands the problem can stem either from the neck or spinal cord depends where along the spinal cord that nerves are being pinched. In the hands, it can be from compression of the carpal tunnel. Usually with someone who has a repetitive job. It could also be a circulatory problem.
Avatar f tn Have you been tested for type II diabetes? Weight gain can be associated with, hypo, PCOS or insulin resistance. Pins and needles can be associated with vitamin B-12 deficiency.
333672 tn?1273796389 This is probably not an MS question, but since you all know so much about things neurological, I thought you might have some ideas as to what this might be. My husband is in Japan right now visiting his family. My father-in-law is having what seem to be some neuro problems. After seeing him, my husband was reminded of some of the things I do, like the off-balance way I walk and thought maybe his dad has MS. I'm not so sure, but here's the story in case anyone has suggestions.

I live in Japan, so came to the US for a second opinion and possible treatment. I have seen two breast surgeons, two oncologists (one specializing in breast cancer) and spent hours surfing the net (which I realize can be dangerous!
