His foot is also now twisted in qn unnatural positon. They keep going to doctors but I wonder if my mother remembers everything that is told to her. Any sugestions.
Avatar n tn My Dr. just informed me that my blood work came back and my sugar level was 112. I am 52, 5'3" and weigh 132. I walk almost everyday about a mile. I do have diabetes on my mother and father's side of the family. But they do not have it. Could it be possible for me to get it.
Avatar f tn Great call. Post back here if you have questions after your visit.
Avatar n tn Excellent advice above. I have had success limiting carbs to 60 per meal. This not only keeps the readings in non-diabetic territory but leads to significant weight loss; 60 lbs in my case over 12 months.

Avatar m tn I was diagnosed with diabetes 2 weeks ago. The Dr. prescribed metformin. I asked for a referral to an endocrinologist since I have an autoimmune disease (Stiff person syndrome + not overweight, normal blood pressure and choloesterol is normal). They said they would refer me to an endocrinologist. 6 days later hadn't heard anythoing from an endocrinoligst so called the Dr.'s office and they resent the referal. Week later still haven't heard anything from an endocrinologist. Called thed Dr.
Avatar f tn The gestational diabetes test is a one hour test, if you fail that, then you take a three hour test. If you fail that also, then you're diagnosed with GD.... So I'm guessing you didn't take this test as it is lengthy and it's not just taking blood. I'm still confused as to why they would think you have diabetes as the A1C is not a standard prenatal test.... Even if they would test you they would probably only do so if your family history for diabetes is incredibly strong.
Business man1 If you provide further details on your consultation with your doctor it would help narrow down what you need to do next. Under normal circumstances doctors do not "mentioned like i am having diabetes." unless he/she has test results to back up their statement. Please answer the following questions in detail: 1.) Did you or did you not undertake a glucose [blood sugar] tolerance test? 1b.) A fasting glucose test? 1c.) An A1c test?
Avatar n tn Hi all im almost 13weeks pregnant i have diabetes that was badly controlled at the point of conception.docs are worried about baby noy responding to inculin as i get closer to due date. My last child i didnt know i was a diabetic untill half way through pregnancy.she was 5 weeks early due to stopping growing which was caused by the medication im worried i will have to have this one so much earlyer than that as iv been on inculin from the start this time.
Avatar n tn This is double normal for people without diabetes. Complications are known to start with consistently raised blood sugars above normal. I would also suggest you learn more about using insulin and use your insulin to get normal blood sugar levels. Fasting < 95 (range ideally 70 - 90), post eating < 120 (ideally < 95 (ie. similar to fasting levels). Please let us know how you go and also ask questions.

Avatar n tn A little silver lining, I had been told that chances of getting it again were very high, but Im pregnant now with no gestational diabetes...But if you have questions feel free to ask and you can email if you like....
Avatar f tn The possibility is that Joey has been 'becoming diabetic' for months or even years, without you or your vet necessarily being aware of it. As the diabetes developed, so secondary symptoms would have developed, including cataract. Blind dogs can manage very well, but obviously it is better to have the cataracts removed if finance permits. Dogs blind from birth fare better than dogs that become blind later in life. You already have an understanding about not moving furniture, etc.
Avatar m tn Ask your doctor or nurse questions Learn more about diabetes See Your Doctor See your diabetes doctor every 3 - 6 months. During this exam, your doctor should check your: Blood pressure Weight Feet See your dentist every 6 months. Eye Exams An eye doctor should check your eyes at least once a year. If you have eye problems because of diabetes, you will probably see your eye doctor more often.
Avatar f tn my doctor explained that the baby is large on the outside but the insides (lungs) can be underdeveloped with diabetes. i know gestational diabetes can happen to a number of women during pregnancy...but anyone i knew who had it was able to control it with their diet. my doctor was most concerned because my highest level everyday was when i wake up in the morning and check after a fast. theres nothing to be modified...and food has nothing to do with it.
1182699 tn?1297578384 Juvenile diabetes, in some cases, can be associated with gluten and/or casein intolerances. It's possible getting off of gluten (which is in wheat, barley, rye and oats) could solve the problem. I would get shaky, feel faint and have heart racing after eating gluten containing foods - I didn't realize the gluten was causing the problem until I got off of it. When I cheated a little, I would get the same symptoms again. Just a thought.
7797471 tn?1397192258 I have Gestational diabetes and have some questions for any Moms that have it. 1. I have an appointment with a Diabetes Specialist on Friday. I am already seeing a Diabetes Dietitian. What should I expect when I see the specialist? What do they do? 2. I have been testing and keeping track of my sugars for almost 7 days, during that time I have had 3 higher then goal counts (only during the first 2 days of testing). Do you think I will need to be put on medication/insulin? 3.
Avatar n tn In case you fingers missed it, this is the type 2 diabetes forum.
Avatar f tn I need help I am suppose to go get my gestational diabetes test tomorrow do I need to fast the day of???
Avatar n tn Creed,,,Sorry to hear about your husband. If you just found out the shock of it all can be overwhelming and you won't be able to think of everything to ask your dr today. We all have been through it and know that feeling. I would suggest make your appointment and between now and then,,,,gather all your information and read as much as you can. This site has so much to offer on everything you need to know about hep c. I made a list to take to my dr on the first initial visit!
Avatar f tn Any infection at the root of nerve or compression will cause similar lesion. This peripheral nerve pathology can be due to Diabetes, Prediabetes, vitamin deficiency or any nutritional deficiency. Lower back strain can cause similar concern. I think you should consult physician and if required neurologist. Bye.
Avatar n tn You can certainly have diabetes independent of this and hyperthyroidism will increase insulin resistance (and therefore make sugar higher).
