1469903 tn?1286650297 Type 2 diabetes was also referred to as non-insulin dependent diabetes mellitus (NIDDM), or adult onset diabetes mellitus (AODM). In type 2 diabetes, patients can still produce insulin, but do so relatively inadequately for their body's needs, particularly in the face of insulin resistance as discussed above. In many cases this actually means the pancreas produces larger than normal quantities of insulin.
1081570 tn?1256157888 Certain conditions often accompany and may contribute to this disease, including diabetes mellitus, elevated lipids in the blood, insulin resistance and high blood pressure. Other causes can include genetic factors, drugs and chemicals, such as alcohol, corticosteroids, tetracycline and carbon tetrachloride. Fatty liver disease can be reversed with a change in the way you live.
Avatar f tn Primary autonomic failure or an isolated problem with the autonomic nerves that supply the heart and blood vessels and coordinate blood pressure responses is quite rare, but it can be affected in some more common disorders like diabetes mellitus, amyloid, guillan barre syndrome, multisystem atrophy - as you can see a wide range of disorders.
Avatar m tn Neurogenic bladder associated with overflow incontinence is caused by the loss of sensation of bladder fullness due to damage or obstruction of sacral nerves and may also be a complication of various diseases such as diabetes mellitus and polio. Urinary stones may also block the urethra and cause overflow incontinence.
1445035 tn?1284948726 Blood Tests for blood grouping. for presence of HIV, Hepatitis B, VDRL/TPHA, Malaria Parasite. Urine Tests for colour, specific gravity, microscopic examination. for presence of opiates, cannabis, pregnancy, sugar, albumin. X-Ray Examination: Chest X-Ray Since 2000 I have a problem in Urine. Whenever I see doctor, they told me to drink plenty of water. They had take my urine and blood. But never give me medicince but just Paracetamol for pain killer. In 2008 I had a urine problem.

Avatar f tn Depending on the patient's symptoms and the suspected diagnosis, ANA may be ordered along with one or more other autoantibody tests. Other laboratory tests associated with presence of inflammation, such as erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR) and/or C-reactive protein (CRP) may also be ordered.
Avatar m tn Graves disease is associated with pernicious anemia, vitiligo, diabetes mellitus type 1, autoimmune adrenal insufficiency, systemic sclerosis, myasthenia gravis, Sjögren syndrome, rheumatoid arthritis, and systemic lupus erythematosus.[2]" - Medscape - Graves Disease Family Practice notebook - Anti-ribonucleoprotein Antibody...
Avatar f tn Please do not take any antibiotic without this test because if the organism is not sensitive to the antibiotic, it will only sit quietly for some time and then flare up again. However increased frequency of urine is also seen in diabetis mellitus and diabetes insipidus. Small for size bladder is another cause and so also neurogenic bladder. Another possibility is a polyp or a growth inside the urethra. At times a hair too grows inwards and keeps tickling the urethra causing a need to urinate.
488823 tn?1218374167 Hepatitis C virus (HCV) causes liver diseases and extrahepatic manifestations, and also contributes to insulin resistance and type 2 diabetes mellitus (DM). The aims of the present study were to examine the incidence of extrahepatic manifestations including lichen planus in HCV-infected patients and to evaluate the relationship between lichen planus and insulin resistance. METHODS: Of 9396 patients with liver diseases presenting to the study hospital, 87 patients (mean age 60.0 +/- 11.
522377 tn?1212151888 Autoimmune hepatitis is associated with other autoimmune illnesses, including thyroiditis (inflammation of the thyroid), diabetes mellitus, and ulcerative colitis (inflammation of the intestines). Although only a few patients with HCV develop autoimmune hepatitis, these patients appear to have a genetic predisposition that makes them more likely to develop autoimmune hepatitis, compared to HCV-infected individuals without that predisposition.
Avatar m tn The study included a large cohort of patients with the most common causes of chronic liver disease (NAFLD, HBV, HCV) for whom extensive clinico-laboratory data were available. The results show that several components of metabolic syndrome (diabetes mellitus, hypertension, high serum glucose, low HDL) are associated with moderate-to-severe fibrosis in these important types of chronic liver disease, especially NAFLD and HCV.

233616 tn?1312790796 In Laron syndrome, which is characterised by dwarfism, somatomedin-1 stimulates growth and increases muscle and bone mass, as well as normalising blood chemistry. In types 1 and 2 (insulin-dependent and non-insulin-dependent) diabetes mellitus, somatomedin-1 increases the sensitivity to insulin and improves glucose utilisation. Experimental studies indicate that IGF-1 has a role in nerve tissue metabolism, and in humans may contribute to healing of injured nerve tissue.
Avatar n tn (These tests were the ones that pointed to a problem between end of spine and neck.) I have had blood tests until I can bleed no more. Diabetes tests are negative. Dr. Nelson does not believe I have even a mild form of MS. His advice was to watch and wait. Numbness has spread some in the last six months. Testing by Dr. Nelson was done a year ago. I am currently taking supplemental B12 and B6. I almost certain that thyroid tests were a part of those blood tests. What is the next step?
Avatar m tn Epidemiological data indicate a strong risk for development of insulin resistance (IR), and, ultimately, overt diabetes mellitus (DM) in patients with chronic hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection. Steatosis, or fatty liver, is closely linked with IR in persons without HCV, such as those with metabolic syndrome, primarily due to increased visceral fat leading to altered adipokine production and increased free fatty acid (FFA) release.
1522652 tn?1291241954 Type III, though not defined well, is the co-occurrence of autoimmune thyroid disease with 2 other autoimmune disorders, including diabetes mellitus type 1, pernicious anemia, or a nonendocrine, organ-specific autoimmune disorder in the absence of Addison disease.
Avatar f tn Fatty liver disease can be caused by significant alcohol consumption, use of steatogenic (ethanol and high-fat diet),obesity, diabetes mellitus, and dyslipidemiahereditary (an elevation of lipids in the blood often due to diet and lifestyle) disorders. 2. Cirrhosis is not a death sentence. If it was I would have been dead in 2007 when I was first diagnosed with cirrhosis.
Avatar f tn However, chronic liver disease can now be accurately diagnosed, in the majority of cases, by the use of contemporary blood tests for acute and chronic hepatitis, autoimmune liver diseases, and hereditary liver diseases, or a careful history of medication use for drug-induced liver disease, alcohol abuse for alcoholic liver disease, and presence of risk factors (obesity, diabetes mellitus, hyperlipidemia) for nonalcoholic fatty liver disease.
Avatar m tn Just to add to the excellent info given by Shyrlgame above,another article pertaining to Geno type 3. http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1111/j.1478-3231.2011.02715.x/full Treatment with PEG-IFN and weight-based RBV for 16 weeks in patients a with rapid virological response (RVR) resulted in an SVR of 76.3% and 86.4% with 24 weeks of treatment, unlike genotype 2 which was 83.8% and 89.3% respectively. This was because of increased relapse rates in patients with genotype 3. Manns et al.
Avatar m tn The current understanding of the serum 25(OH)D-disease outcome relations for cancers, cardiovascular disease, respiratory infections, respiratory diseases, tuberculosis, diabetes mellitus, Alzheimer's disease, falls and fractures, meningitis, Parkinson's disease, maternal sepsis and hypertension, and multiple sclerosis was used in the calculations. Estimated reductions in mortality rates from increasing serum 25(OH)D from 20 ng/ml to over 40 ng/ml ranged from 7% for Africa to 17% for Europe.
Avatar n tn blood glucose uses a different measure. I've been diagnosed with Diabetes Mellitus, which as far as I know, is all Diabetes-2. I see that there are three types on the information you posted. Mine is being controlled by diet and alpha lipoic acid (1200 mg/day). I will do some research as I don't really know what growth hormone does for adults vis a vis childhood. Thanks for giving me the addresses. I will follow up. This a particularly informative forum and I appreciate your prompt reply.
1916673 tn?1420236870 Low sodium levels are also common with prolonged vomiting and/or diarrhea. Addison’s disease, poorly controlled diabetes mellitus, diuretics including furosemide and liver disease are also likely to reduce sodium levels to below normal. T4 (1.0 - 4.7 ug/dL) T4 is one of two major hormones produced by the thyroid gland. The T4 test is one of several that can help identify hypothyroidism, which involves an under-active thyroid gland in dogs.
179856 tn?1333550962 Good thread I read this with interest and have pulled prior blood work to see what it tells me. My glucose is easy -- it is written as Glucose, Serum or GLU. It is written in mg/dL so requires modification, per Willing. I am having a problem finding any insulin resistance tests. I have a book -- "Mosby's Manual of Diagnostic and Laboratory Tests " which give what I thought were all the blood tests.
Avatar m tn In a cross-sectional survey including 9841 persons, Mehta et al found that HCV-positive persons who were older than 40 years had an increased risk for type 2 diabetes mellitus higher than 3 times compared with persons without HCV-infection Insulin resistance is the main pathogenic factor in the development of steatosis in chronic hepatitis C, both viral insulin resistance and metabolic insulin resistance could be implied in the development of steatosis.
Avatar m tn Fatty liver disease is usually found in a patient who is undergoing evaluation for abnormal liver function tests. While no laboratory blood test is diagnostic of fatty liver an ultrasound will see the characteristic echo reflections of a fatty liver. The AST blood test indicates that the liver has been recently injured.
Avatar n tn Clinicians must thus rely on such laboratory tests as serum amylase and lipase to support the diagnosis. Because the serum amylase assay tends to be less expensive and more readily available than lipase assay in most hospitals, most clinicians will obtain amylase measurements first in cases of suspected pancreatitis.
Avatar m tn 5% other. Overall, 16.3% have been diagnosed with diabetes mellitus, 29.4% with hypertension, and 36.6% with hyperlipidemia. Kruskal-Wallis, followed by Mann-Whitney analysis tests were completed to compare diagnosis groups across 13 nutrition category variables. Diagnosis groups differed significantly on 7 of 13 nutrition categories. The NAFLD group consumed significantly more high sodium foods (p=.036) and low nutrient dense foods/baking products, fats, oils, and sweets (p=.
Avatar n tn So I wouldn't rely on anything a GP said about diabetes. If I want information about diabetes (I have type 1, autoimmune diabetes), I ask my ENDOCRINOLOGIST. Not a GP. Questions I might ask my GP include: a) Hey, does this look infected? or b) Can I have a referral? Uh, yeah, that's about it.
Avatar f tn Cholesterol lowering statins deplete CoQenzyme10 so you can say goodbye to energy right there. Low levels of CoQ10 are implicated in virtually all cardiovascular diseases, including angina, hypertension, cardiomyopathy and congestive heart failure. Poorly treated hypothyroidism and undiagnosed hypothyroidism is a cause of rising or high cholesterol levels. Thyroid hormone is essential for cholesterol metabolism. Studies show 92% of diabetics have low RBC magnesium levels.
