Avatar n tn A short-term regimen (a week or so) is usually tolerated fairly well, but longer than that puts you in a position where your dog is flirting with developing diabetes mellitus, Cushing's Disease, pancreatitis, or several other problems. By doing bloodwork at least twice during the two months he's being treated you can keep track of how his system is tolerating the steroids. Weaning him off at the earliest sign of problems would be possible if you're keeping track of how he's responding.
365714 tn?1292202708 I don't think the Wellness caused Waldo's kidney or diabetes issues. I really don't. I think that diabetes just develops in some cats, and it can cause kidney problems......but, w/ age many cats develop kidney disease too. BTW, did your vet tell you specifically to give Waldo 1/2 cup of day of dry food?
Avatar f tn Dogs tend to develop other problems due to the steroids, even during short-term use, one of which is diabetes mellitus. It can also cause elevated liver enzymes because the it's the liver that converts the prednisone into prednisolone. It can cause pancreatitis. It can cause gastric disturbances (nebulous term, I know) and gastric bleeding. It increases thirst which leads to increased water intake which, in turn, leads to frequent urination.
Avatar m tn The problem with CUPS, if it is CUPS, is that this disease, while it CAN be caused simply by severe dental issues, is often diagnosed secondary to another, usually serious condition. Diabetes mellitus, thyroid issues, renal disease, certain forms of cancer, autoimmune issues, and renal disease are all diseases that can lead to a dog developing CUPS. I would definitely seek a second opinion since it's pretty obvious that SOMETHING is going on with the dog.
Avatar m tn ****** In 2002, I basically diagnosed myself with Diabetes Insipidus (which for anyone who doesn't know, has nothing biologically to do with Diabetes Mellitus (which people usually mean if they just say Diabetes). I hasten to add that an endocrinologist diagnosed me, and one with a PhD in vasopressin (so he knew what he was doing). I initially requested the tests from my GP and the tests confirmed what I suspected.
Avatar m tn It may affect one side of the body (unilateral), particularly in secondary cases. Less frequently, symptoms may also appear in the face, ears and other parts of the body. The classic description of erythromelalgia is red, painful, warm hands or feet, brought on by warming or hanging the limb downward, and relieved with cooling and elevation.
489867 tn?1209210894 (Remember my 20 clueless docs!) Symptoms are different in each person with Lyme, partly because of the extra infections the tick often carry, which confuses the symptomatic picture and also confuses docs who are not wise to what Lyme is all about. The single most important thing to do, in my view, is to find a Lyme specialist. Sadly, the docs you would think to be on the ball with this stuff are infectious disease (ID) MDs, since Lyme is (duh) an infectious disease.

Avatar n tn by the way tests like MRI and CAT scans which are very high in radiation only make the symptoms worse. My symptoms are headaches, brain fog, night sweats, anxiety, shaky feeling at times, sharp ear pain, tingling in body parts (if they are exposed to electrical appliances for too long), sleep issues -- very light sleeping, nausea and acid reflux. Best of luck and let me/the list know if it helps.
