Diabetes mellitus and magnesium

Common Questions and Answers about Diabetes mellitus and magnesium


Avatar n tn Her health has deteriorated so much from inactivity since she's had neuropathy with weight gain and depression that I'm very concerned and want some answers for her. Potassium and Magnesium somehow relate to leg pain and I'm wondering what dosage is recommended for diabetics to take and if it is dangerous to take too high a dose of either. She takes the 90 mg Potassium with Magnesium. CAN SHE TAKE A HIGHER DOSE TO SEE IF SHE GETS SOME RELIEF???
1774905 tn?1314266465 Proton Pump Inhibitors (eg: nexium, prilosec) are a short term drugs only. The FDA issued a statement to take PPI's up to 14 days, 3 times a year. There is a good reason for this. You NEED stomach acid to release nutrients from proteins, release instrinsic factor which binds to vitamin B12 for absorption in the gut, and kill of bacteria, parasites, and fungi. "The popular belief is that acid reflux is due to an excessive amount of hydrochloric acid in the stomach.

Avatar f tn So, please dont take them indiscriminately. Also, check to rule out diabetes mellitus, it could cause neuropathy and the consequent symptoms of pain or tingling in the limbs. Hope this helped and do keep us posted.

194555 tn?1264290523 Yes, stress can be the cause. However diabetes mellitus is a likely cause for head and tongue tingling. It could also be due to nerve compression very high up in the cervical vertebra. Excess alcohol intake, partial seizures and low calcium levels all cause head and tongue tingling. Wisdom tooth is another cause. It could also be due to allergy to some food item.

Avatar n tn Treatment for patients who have pancreatitis due to high triglyceride levels includes weight loss, exercise, eating a low fat diet, controlling blood sugar, and avoiding alcohol and medications that can raise triglycerides (eg: thiazide diuretics and beta-blockers). Studies have suggested that oxidative stress may contribute to the development of pancreatitis and that antioxidant supplementation may be of some benefit. Natural antioxidants include selenium, beta-carotene, vitamin C, vitamin E.
Avatar m tn I've been having bad neck and shoulder and shoulder blade pain on the right side for a few months. I have been taking Protonix since May, 40mgs once every evening. Because I'm not getting relief with chiropractic care or anything else for that matter, I started thinking about medication and side effects. The protonix s the only thing that could possibly be the culprit. I went off of it two days ago, took omaprazole instead, and have had a 50% reduction in the pain.
Avatar f tn I thought i had IC for two years but found out it was due to severe magnesium deficiency! Graves' disease and Ulcerative Colitis are both autoimmune diseases. The cause of IC is unknown but is a suspected autoimmune disease. Both hyperthyroidism and hypothyroidism affects the skin and one of the possible symptom is eczema. Diverticulitis is not an autoimmune disease but is stated to be very common and is usually asymptomatic (no symptoms).
Avatar n tn Other tests for underlying causes of chronic bronchitis or pneumonia include immunglobulin deficiencies (IgA, IgG, IgM), vitamin B12 deficiency, vitamin D deficiency. Muscles twitch is also commonly due to calcium and magnesium deficiency. Ionized calcium and ionized or RBC magnesium blood tests are recommended over serum testing. In regards to vitamins, aim for the upper end of the reference range. Symptoms can occur in low "normal" ranges.
Avatar n tn Liver enzymes raise for numerous reasons and not always due to liver damage. Test again in a few months as the enzyme levels may have lowered again.
Avatar n tn Drink and pee can be a pituitary disorder called Diabetes insipidus - not diabetes mellitus (sugar diabetes). But you really need a doctor to determine what is going on. You can also drink so much that you wash all the electrolytes out of your body.
Avatar f tn It is a disorder of the nerves which causes numbness, tingling, unusual sensations and sometimes pain. Diabetes Mellitus can cause neuropathy. Other causes like vitamin deficiencies, alcohol consumption and certain medications can cause neuropathy. You may need to consult your primary care physician to detect the cause. Regards.
Avatar m tn I have had appointments with my primary care physician, ENT, Allergist, Naturopath, Endocrinologist and Pulmonologist. I have been tested for mono, Lyme disease, anemia, diabetes, thyroid and what seems like all of the "go to" tests when a doctor hears fatigue. I tested negative for diabetes and negative for all other initial endocrine system tests, with the doctor feeling confident that it was not an issue within her realm.
Avatar f tn Have you been tested for celiac's disease? Alopecia Areata And Celiac Disease... "In fact, the doctors did find a relatively high rate of celiac disease in their patients - much greater than could be expected by chance. On the basis of this study, the doctors recommended that celiac disease antibody testing should be performed in all patients with alopecia areata." The Celiac/Autoimmune Thyroid Connection...
Avatar f tn My 73 yr old husband is having leg cramps at night. His health is excellent and he only takes medication for his blood pressure and an 81mg aspirin per day. He's not the type to sit still for long. What can he do?
Avatar m tn Most magnesium is stored in the tissues, so leg cramps, foot pain or muscle twitches are usually the first signs of a magnesium deficiency. To add, both vitamin D and magnesium are needed for calcium absorption.

Avatar f tn A lot of times it seems to come over from the right side under my ribs and move up to my heart, my chest will actually be sore afterwards, like a bruise. I cough when yelling or out of breath, abdomen is tender all the time below ribs on both sides and in the middle below sternum, as well as the mid abdomen hurts if touched or laid on and my stomach bloats, gallbladder removed 7 years ago, diarrhea every time I eat (it’s bad), & low appetite, but still have gained a few pounds.
Avatar f tn I keep developing magnesium deficiency due to severe insulin resistance. "In diabetes mellitus, it is suggested that low intracellular magnesium levels result from both increased urinary losses and insulin resistance." I believe H1c is short for HbA1c which tests for diabetes. Between 6 and 6.5 is considered pre-diabetes. Unless H1c stands for something else, you have pre-diabetes.
Avatar f tn See the page on Calcium With Magnesium to see why magnesium is MORE important than calcium for bone health.) Diabetes Sudden Death in patients with Congestive Heart Failure Fibromyalgia and Magnesium Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Kidney Stones In almost all of these disorders, signs of magnesium deficiency were apparent long before the disease struck but with few medical professionals knowledgeable about the magnesium deficiency symptoms, no one is there to catch these diseases before they happen.
Avatar n tn This is more common in the elderly and in people with diabetes mellitus. Inadequate sleep can also cause tiredness, fatigue and dizziness. Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
Avatar f tn Even high cholesterol, diabetes and osteoporosis are related to low levels of magnesium. Even some so-called 'Side Effects' of substances are actually due to the Magnesium Depletion that they cause- and are not really 'side effects' in and of themselves. For instance, you should ALWAYS take Magnesium and Vitamin D together to avoid any of the Vitamin D Side Effects that are (almost always) due to low magnesium!!
Avatar n tn Foods like garlic, onions, caffeine, alcohol and an imbalance in magnesium and zinc can cause excess sweating and bad odour.Poor hygiene, changing clothes infrequently, damp places like socks or T shirt can lead to flourishing of yeast and bacteria and produce an unpleasant odour.Liver disease, kidney disease, diabetes mellitus can produce a typical unpleasant odor as there is a change in consistency of sweat in these conditions.
Avatar f tn It is a disorder of the nerves which causes numbness, tingling, unusual sensations and sometimes pain. Diabetes Mellitus can cause neuropathy. Other causes like vitamin deficiencies, alcohol consumption and certain medications can cause neuropathy. . Another cause could be an entity called restless leg syndrome, where there is an odd sensation in the legs during sleep causing the individual to move, which relieves the sensation.
Avatar m tn Poor memory, brain fog and lack of concentration are all signs of insulin resistance. You may not have been actually diagnosed as insulin resistant yet, but elevated sugar levels do affect memory. Increase magnesium in the diet. Do not take magnesium supplements if you have kidney or heart problems. "Magnesium plays a pivotal role in the secretion and function of insulin; without it, diabetes mellitus is inevitable." - Nutritional Magnesium Association.
Avatar f tn Just to add, elevated glucose excretes more magnesium through the urine causing symptoms of low magnesium. And the list of magnesium deficiency symptoms below is not in the least a complete list in the least (I know as I had severe magnesium deficiency from combined insulin resistance/impaired glucose tolerance, high doses of vitamin D and surgery). To reverse my insulin resistance I removed all refined sugar from my diet (I don't eat a lot of carbs otherwise).
Avatar f tn And as your calcium levels are within the normal range its unlikely that your symptoms are due to hypocalcemia. Check to rule out diabetes mellitus, it can cause the symptoms described by you. Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
Avatar f tn Other conditions with high ANA titre include Addison disease, Idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP), Hashimoto's, Autoimmune hemolytic anemia, Type I diabetes mellitus, Mixed connective tissue disorder.” Refer: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anti-nuclear_antibody First of all these would have to be ruled out one by one. Dehydration, deficiency of calcium and magnesium, irritable bowel can also cause a gag spasm. Multiple sclerosis is also a possibility.
