Common Questions and Answers about Diabetes mellitus in the usa


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.

568322 tn?1370169040 Many vitamins and supplements can cause damage to the liver depending on the dose. One study in the USA found that up to one third of the patients in a liver clinic used herbal remedies. One of the most hepatotoxic vitamins is Vitamin A and anyone taking vitamin A supplements should be aware that doses higher than 25,000 IU (international units) per day may be dangerous. Most multivitamin preparations contain 4,000 IU vitamin A, which is well within the safety range.
Avatar f tn Sclerosing lymphocytic lobulitis was identified in 69.7% of the subjects with type 1 diabetes and 1.8% of those with autoimmune thyroid disease diagnosed with benign breast disease at surgery. It did not occur in patients with type 2 diabetes with or without insulin treatment or in control subjects. Only retinopathy and peripheral neuropathy were associated with sclerosing lymphocytic lobulitis.
Avatar m tn Aims (1) To assess the association of diabetes mellitus (DM) in HCV patients to the severity of hepatic fibrosis and to the response to antiviral treatment. (2) To assess the safety of pegylated interferon and ribavirin combination therapy (Peg IFN/RBV) in diabetic HCV patients. Methods HCV diabetics (n = 61) were identified. A 2:1 matching control group was used to identify independent factors of advanced fibrosis and treatment failure.
Avatar m tn (OMNS April 10, 2012) The biggest vitamin D story in 2011 was the report on dietary reference intakes for calcium and vitamin D from the Institute of Medicine (IOM) [1]. This report was prepared during a two-year process by 14 nutrition experts, with funding from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and the National Institutes of Health and Health Canada.
Avatar n tn Abstract Diet is now one of the well established means in the management of diabetes. Bitter gourd and spent turmeric at 10% level were tested for their efficacy on glycosaminoglycan metabolism in various tissues viz., liver, spleen, lungs, heart and testis in control, diabetic and treated rats. The glycosaminoglycans (GAGs) were isolated from defatted and dried tissues. The contents of sulfated GAGs decreased in all the tissues and the decrease was more prominent in heart and testis.
Avatar n tn I drank the water, and it cleared up some, but not all the way. But, since i have been back here in the USA, my urine appears normal. So, thats why i say i dont think I have any symptoms of bladder cancer. I do have type II diabetes, which i have had for the past 15years. I'm only 39 years old. So, here is my question. If I dont have a cancer, which I shouldnt, right? Then I have a cyst, or a benign tumor? Will it need to be removed? Am I going to have to pee in a bag?
Avatar f tn you could have a water infection and your bladder wants to go more to flush the infection out of your body. you may also be suffering from diabetes. many people in the world suffer from diabetes without realising it especially in the uk and the usa. symptoms include frequant urinating, drinking alot, feelling dizzy, hot, sweaty,sick and sometimes tingling in the body. if you have any of these symptoms ask your doctor to test you for diabetes.
Avatar m tn It is characterized by the obligatory occurrence of autoimmune Addison disease in combination with thyroid autoimmune diseases and/or type 1 diabetes mellitus (also known as insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus, or IDDM). Primary hypogonadism, myasthenia gravis, and celiac disease also are commonly observed in this syndrome.
Avatar f tn Unfortunately, little data about the treatment of pain specifically in small-fiber neuropathy exist because most studies combine mixed neuropathic pain syndromes in the analysis. Additional studies targeting the treatment of pain in small-fiber neuropathy are needed to guide decision making.

1916673 tn?1420236870 ALT (15 - 84 U/L) ALT stands for Alunine aminotransferase, which is an enzyme found mostly in the cells of the liver and kidney, but also in much smaller amounts in the heart and muscles. Increased results suggest liver damage, severe shock, toxin ingestion, Cushing's disease, acute or chronic hepatitis and/or pancreatitis among other secondary and primary conditions.
461838 tn?1255793816 Regarding steroid-related side effects, posttransplant diabetes mellitus occurred in 10% vs. 45%, and wound infection in 6% vs. 31% of steroid-free vs. corticosteroid patients (P=0.003 and 0.01)" Randomized trial of steroid-free induction versus corticosteroid maintenance among orthotopic liver transplant recipients with hepatitis C virus: impact on hepatic fibrosis progression at one year.
Avatar n tn My friend did the tx 7 years ago, and his memory issues are still a concern, he also cleared the virus. I believe that the virus lives in the tissues/brain even if you clear the virus, which may also explain why we suffer 'brain fog'. These symptoms are also experience by people with HCV who have not had treatment. See study by Daniel Forton et al 2001 - Evidence for a cerebral effect for the hepatitis C virus. (Lancet, Vol 358. pp38-39).
2038871 tn?1329801810 Hep C/liver disease is nowhere close to being the number 1 cause of death in the US - liver disease is number 12 on the CDC list.
Avatar f tn In fact, etiologic factors for all forms of fungus-related sinus disease are still poorly understood. The prevalence of the disease and the dominant fungal pathogen appear to vary in different geographic regions and probably are related to individual host conditions. Immunoglobulin E-mediated allergic reactions to mold appear to be associated with disease in some patients, but not in all.
Avatar f tn but at the second year after liver transplantation, only eight patients (9%) had evidence of diabetes mellitus, which implies the transient nature of diabetes mellitus in many transplant recipients.
Avatar m tn Changes in renal parameters were evaluated in all patients in Gilead studies 102, 103 and 106 receiving TDF through 144 weeks. Baseline and on-treatment renal function was evaluated based on serum creatinine and estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) by Cockcroft-Gault (CG). Renal events were defined as either a confirmed increase in serum creatinine by ≥ 0.5 mg/dL from baseline, or a confirmed eGFR < 50 mL/min.
Avatar m tn I have been unable to engage in any physical activity because I become so sick that I can't function for up to a day or two afterwards. I get very tight in the back and chest and feel like the air isn't going deep enough. I become completely exhausted physically.I feel washed out, like something the cat has dragged in. I can't sleep afterwards because my breathing is not right, and my body won't let me fall asleep. I have an incredible urge to drink liquids.
Avatar m tn In light of the numerous etiologies of PE, this article reviews the current literature and provides a framework to help guide the clinician in determining the cause of PE in patients presenting with this finding. www.ncbi.nlm.nih.
Avatar m tn NIDDK, National Institutes of Health, Baltimore, MD, USA. The rise in obesity coincides with an increase in total fructose (FRU) intake. Excess FRU intake leads to hepatic increases in pyruvate and lactate production and a shift in balance from oxidation to esterification of fatty acids. Acute FRU loading of the liver causes sequestration of inorganic phosphate in FRU-1-phosphate and diminished ATP synthesis. Hepatic ATP depletion increases uric acid formation.
Avatar f tn Keep lids on boiling pots and exhaust fans running in the bath. Turning on the cold water before the hot will reduce the amount of moisture released into the air in the form of steam. Repeated condensation on windows can also cause problem moisture areas and it is best if you wipe any window or condensation on glass with a cloth.
Avatar n tn I'm a retired research coordinator in oncology. The two places to look for anything going on in research in the US are PubMedg.gov and clinicaltrials.gov. Nothing on the horizon. It's a rare condition so therefore, there's no incentive for Pharma to try to come up with a drug. There's no $$$ in it. I guess I'll get some Boswellia tomorrow at my healthfood store. I had intralesional injections of steroids today. Doc wanted to give me tetracycle, but I'm allergic to it.
Avatar m tn By using multivariate analysis, the model predicting moderate-to-severe fibrosis in NAFLD included the presence of diabetes mellitus and increased AST and ALT levels (model P-value = 0.0005). The summary of the resulting model is given in Table 3. Specifically, the model shows that the odds ratio of having moderate-to-severe fibrosis is approximately three times higher in NAFLD patients with diabetes in comparison with NAFLD patients without diabetes.
179856 tn?1333550962 The last 8 years it has hovered between 90 and 110. Guess what. In June which was 3 months after the end of treatment my cholesterol was 177. The highest that I know of. This tells me that my Liver is healing and making more of it. I just hope it doesn't keep going up. I will have to wait and see. A compromised Liver sometimes doesn't make enough of it. If we do end up on Lipitor, we probably would of anyway if we didn't have hep-c.
Avatar m tn Whereas the relationship between baseline lipid profile and virologic response to therapy has primarily been reported in the literature in retrospective studies, this prospective study showed that high levels of total cholesterol at baseline significantly increased the probability of RVR. The relationship between HCV viral clearance and serum lipids during therapy is still obscure.

So I thought I better look into it. I went to this very nice candy store. You know, the ones that have all the fancy, very pretty candy.
