Avatar f tn (***Obviously, besides Hep C, there are other factors associated with developing diabetes, like family history, obesity, long-term steroid use, etc). DURING..... During treatment the Interferon alters the balance of your immune system and that may cause SEVERE weight loss very fast. And that can cause insulin resistance. Why? Because glucose (sugar) is stored in fat cells. When fat tissue dissapears, it forces the sugar into your blood stream ...

Avatar n tn For those of you with Type 1 or children that have Type 1, did you have or feed cereal to your infant under 4 months of age? Was there a family history or no family history? This has me worried sick, any help would be appreciated. Thanks!!
Avatar n tn I asked by by diabetes docotor and my hep c doctor about a link between the two diseases and both said there wasn't one. Since I am not over weight and there is no diabetes in my family I am inclined to think there is a link. Also have read here more then once about those of us who crave sugar while on tx, a side effect I have been going through and giving into recently, not good for my diabetes.

Avatar n tn Diabetic neuropathy is a common cause. Do you have a family history of Diabetes Mellitus? Have you, in recent times, got yourself checked for Diabetes Mellitus ?
Avatar n tn The acquired form most commonly found in women is secondary to obstructive coronary atherosclerosis, and can develop in young women, especially if they have other risk factors such as diabetes mellitus, smoke or have a strong family history of heart disease.
Avatar f tn There are certain risk factors associated with this condition like aging, cardiovascular disease or stroke, personal or family history of PAD.Obesity, cigarette smoking, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, physical inactivity and diabetes mellitus are other risk factors. Doppler ultrasound, magnetic resonance angiography is done to diagnose this condition. The complications of PAD are increased risk of coronary artery disease, loss of a leg, stroke and carotid atherosclerosis.
Avatar n tn Polycystic kidney disease (PKD) is usually diagnosed by the presence of multiple cysts on BOTH kidneys as well as a family history of the disease (it is genetic). As people age, they tend to get harmless cysts but even these can grow large enough to put pressure on the rib cage or a nerve and cause pain. Pain is a common symptom of PKD. I hope this helps. You should write down your questions and call your doctor. I know I don't always think of everything to ask right away.
Avatar f tn So if there is any history if unprotected intercourse, then get your pregnancy status checked. It can also be due to diabetes mellitus. Other possibilities are glomerulonephritis, pyelonephritis(inflammation of the kidneys),urinary tract infection, hypercalcemia ,hypokalemia(low potassium),hyperthyroidism, hyperparathyroidism, diuretic drugs.
Avatar m tn Your usual blood pressure readings, your medical history, family history and diagnostic tests including blood chemistry, ECG and imaging studies may also be indicated. Try to monitor your blood pressure daily. Eat a low salt diet and exercise regularly. Take care and do keep us posted.
Avatar n tn Firstly, I’ll request you to get your blood sugar/HbA1c (glycated hemoglobin) tested to rule out Diabetes mellitus. You may also need tests like Nerve Conduction Velocity etc. My opinion is to get yourself examined by a neurologist. After confirmatory diagnosis only, treatment can be started. Take care and do keep us posted on how you are doing.
Avatar n tn A frenulum tag too can cause this type of sensation. Diabetes mellitus and diabetes insipidus too should be ruled out. Since I cannot examine you and know other related conditions you may be having, nor is a detailed history possible on net, I have listed the various possibilities that should be looked into. Please consult your PCP for primary examination followed by proper referral to an urologist. Take care!
Avatar n tn Hi. Do you have a history of Diabetes Mellitus in the family ?
251908 tn?1189759431 Patients with an established diagnosis of diabetes mellitus who are started on atypical antipsychotics should be monitored regularly for worsening of glucose control. Patients with risk factors for diabetes mellitus (eg, obesity, family history of diabetes) who are starting treatment with atypical antipsychotics should undergo fasting blood glucose testing at the beginning of treatment.
Avatar n tn Do you have a strong personal or family history of diabetes? I suggest that you have blood tests done to determine fasting blood sugar levels. An oral glucose tolerance test may also help establish if one is prediabetic .At this point, I do not want you to worry. As other causes such as stress ,exercises and a recent meal intake may cause increase levels of glucose in the urine. This may be true in isolated cases. An initial work up may be necessary just to check blood glucose levels.
1057395 tn?1254371028 Especially if you have a family history of diabetes, this should be looked into. There is a possibility that diabetes affected your kidney and this is causing water retention. The other possibility is diabetes insipidus which happens due to adrenal gland dysfunction. Polycystic disease of the ovary is another possibility that causes resistance to insulin and high glucose levels causing similar symptoms. It is difficult to comment beyond this on net.
Avatar n tn I'm pretty sure I don't have diabeits as I have no other symptoms and no family history). Does anyone have any other reasons for excessive thirst?
Avatar f tn Gestational diabetes doesn't always look or act like diabetes mellitus - it's a different disease. It may not affect the mother too terribly much but it can be extremely dangerous to the baby if not controlled. You say you work in the medical field - but you don't understand why it's important or how the testing is done or whether refusal is an option? Go ahead and get the test done.
Avatar m tn Thanks but I don't have any of the other symptoms of diabetes (polydipsia etc.), I have no family history of type 1 diabetes and I am too young and slim to have type 2 (17 years old, BMI 21). My doctor did a fasting blood glucose which turned out normal, a urinalysis and CBC which were fine and Im being referred for a kidney ultrasound and bladder retention scan. They have no clue what could be causing this, it doesn't even seem to be disturbing my U&Es, what could to be???
Avatar n tn some ideas about the names Diabetes Mellitus, which became 'sugar diabetes' diabetes is from Latin/Greek origin and means 'to pass through' because with the excessive thirst and urination, water seemed to pass through the individual with diabetes mellitus, also Latin/Greek means honeyed after it was noticed that a diabetic's urine attracted bees and ants and other inseccts that lived on sugar.
Avatar n tn Most likely they were simply diagnosed at a later time. The family history of MS puts you at higher risk for MS. Having one auto-immune (AI) disease (Hashimoto's) does increase the risk of other AI disease but most patients with Hashimoto's do not develop other AI disease -- sometimes earlier expression of AI disease (such as in your case, but more concerning if diagnosed as child/adolescent) may herald additional AI diseases.
Avatar n tn Perhaps, it will need more treatment other than what you have been able to provide till now, after giving it a decent chance to heal without any irritation. Also, do you have any other problems? Diabetes mellitus? or a family history of it? have you had similar conditions in the past? hope this helped, let us know if you may need any more information. best regards.
Avatar n tn I do not have any other medical problem (diabetes mellitus or a family history of it). This is the first time I have had this condition.
Avatar f tn in September or so) and I'm tested every year for blood sugar and diabetes due to my family history. It didn't show much elevation until this year along with all the autoimmune conditions. I don't know much about latent insulin resistance, but I'll read up on it. I know that a lot of what I thought was fat was edema, because when I went on levothyroxine (.50) I lost 20+ pounds in 4 or 5 months without changing diet or anything.

469720 tn?1388149949 While stroke is common among the elderly, a lot of people under 65 also have strokes. Heredity (family history) and race - Your stroke risk is greater if a parent, grandparent, sister or brother has had a stroke. African Americans have a much higher risk of death from a stroke than Caucasians do. This is partly because blacks have higher risks of high blood pressure, diabetes and obesity. Sex (gender) - Stroke is more common in men than in women.
