Diabetes symptoms risk

Common Questions and Answers about Diabetes symptoms risk


Avatar n tn Feeling shaky, having nausea, feeling weakness and fatigue are one of several diabetes symptoms. Having a family history of diabetes also puts you at higher risk than others. You're not going to get full answers to your concerns on the inet as we cannot diagnose you without seeing you. Since you are a teenager, I suggest your parent/s have you fully evaluated by a doctor, not only just for diabetes, but also to rule out if some other health issue is brewing. Good luck.
Avatar n tn I have now developed diabetes w/o any family hx or current symptoms. Endocrinologist states my pancreas is slowing down. My radiation as from my naval down to just above my knees in the front and the back. Chemo bleomyacin, high doses of prednisone, adriomyacin, vencrystin and cytoxin.
Avatar n tn I'm not well versed on the symptoms of Diabetes, I don't know my father well enough to talk to him about it. I have a twin sister who also has these feelings in her legs and bones. My Psychiatrist told me that I have bipolar disorder, but none of the medication has worked. I read that Diabetes can cause depression, is this true? My sister and I have both have issues with depression and have been in and out of therapy. We're both thin, weighting about 110Ibs.
Avatar f tn have you check your insulin after using metformin im sure your levels are much lower right now , i assume your doctor dont see any risks in your case thats probably why acts lightheartedly , ( good BMI +metformin + good diet = low risk unless you have close relatvie with diabetes ) i think best thing is check it again just to put your mind at ease , i wil ask mine aswell since my doctors wasnt good to comunicate either and they only made me more confused each visit , first one who diagn
1456043 tn?1285366131 If you have these high blood sugars ongoing for awhile you are at risk of DKA so if you begin to feel flu-like symptoms or vomiting you need to go to the ER. By the way you've posted in the Type 2 forum.
Avatar n tn If the diabetics in your company do not know how to properly treat their diabetes with diet, weight control, exercise and regular testing they are putting themselves at risk. Obesity makes diabetes harder to control and a type 2 diabetic who is overweight should be working with their doctor and nutritionist to develop a strategy for healthy weight loss. Do you know whether your diabetics are all Type 2 or if some of them are Type 1? It makes a difference in treatment.
Avatar m tn Thank you. It was a nice relief. Sounds like a good plan! I just got the the test results in the mail today. AC1 does read 5.4 with the following comments: Healthy: 4.8 - 5.6% Increased risk for diabetes: 5.7 - 6.4% Diabetes: >6.4% They also ran my Glucose which showed 59 mg/dl - Though this was a NON-fasting, random test done mid-afternoon. Interesting how it is the opposite end of the scale. Thanks again.
645800 tn?1466864555 I bring this up because I am wondering after reading these posts, is there any correlation between MS and diabetes? Any special symptoms I should be looking for or tests that should be taken? If I am diagnosed with MS in the future, I worry about the esophogeal spasms that Lulu spoke of in another post. Being diabetic already puts me in a HIGH RISK group for cardio problems which also run in my family. ( Thanks Mom & Dad!
Avatar n tn I would suggest that you convince her parents to take her in for a simple blood test to rule in or out type 1 diabetes. Some of the usual symptoms of type 1 diabetes are the following: Frequent urination unusual thirst extreme hunger weight loss fatigue blurred vision a fruity smell to the breath While I am not as familar with autism, I would highly recommend that she have a simple blood test to rule out diabetes as soon as possible.
Avatar m tn You need to be tested to rule out diabetes.
Avatar m tn Sir, Thanks, Neut - 54% (50%-70%), Lymp - 35.4% (20%-40%), MONO - 9.8% ( 0%-5%) --- IT IS HIGH PDW - 13.2% ( 8%-12%) - IT IS HIGH RDW-SD - 45.4% (35%-56%) - IS NORMAL. RDW-CV - 13.2% (11%-16%) - IS NORMAL Pls assist, with the high mono and pdw.
5757154 tn?1373694890 Your symptoms could be from diabetes (neuropathy) or it could be something else (like some pressure on nerves - maybe by your sleeping position). How well controlled are your blood sugars? If your sugars are running high there is risk of neuropathy. There are medications that can help with this, but the best approach is to get better control of blood sugars and reduce your A1c as close to normal as you can. have you discussed with your Dr? What response were you given?
Avatar n tn I know there are sites that give you symptoms of chirrosis but can someone who has it tell what they have experienced.
Avatar f tn I'm aware of the risk for developing diabetes after having it during pregnancy, and in the past weeks have noticed some of the symptoms that i had such as dry mouth, excessive thirst, more frequent urination, headache, extreme fatigue and also i'm not sure if it's related but sharp pains in my lower abdominal area that are a regular occurrence.
Avatar n tn Hi, Your symptoms do sound like they could be compatible with early diabetes BUT they could also be something else--the symptoms of diabetes are not very specific. The best first test is a morning fasting blood sugar. Totally normal is less than 100mg/dL. If it is slightly over that(or if it is normal and you want to do another test to be sure) you can do a 2 hour glucose tolerance test which will check your fasting glucose as well as after a glucose load.
Avatar n tn can check your glucose level to let you know if you should be concerned. I got diabetes from the flu, so even if you have no contributing factors, you can get diabetes. Definitely get checked. It's bad to wait.
Avatar f tn I have diabetes, I take 20 unit of insulin and take Zoryl M2 twice daily with two time Glucoby 25 mg. I eat lots of sweets and since yesterday I have got numbness in my feet,hands and lips and surrounding it with pins and needles feeling in these areas. What could be the reason?
Avatar m tn Has your doctor done either of these? There are no real symptoms of pre diabetes. The symptoms of diabetes include frequent urination, thirst, blurred vision, numbness/tingling in the distal extremities, fatigue, slowed healing of cuts, and frequent infections. Peripheral neuropathy is a condition frequently found with diabetes. The symptoms of peripheral neuropathy are pain, numbness, and tingling sensations in the distal extremities.
Avatar f tn I have an extensive family history of diabetes and cardiovascular disease. I was also diagnosed with Raynaud's Disease at 12, and have a very small bladder; so several of the symptoms for me can be easily explained away. Also, I never had a weight problem until menopause. Recently, I began gaining weight. So far I've put on 50 lbs in the past 4 months.
Avatar m tn Once you progress for pre-diabetes, why is diabetes not reversible as pre-diabetes is? Does that mean once your diagnosed with diabetes your blood sugar can no longer return to normal and you can't "cure" diabetes? How long does it take to progress? I was a 6.3 the last time I checked which was 2 years ago and I am worried. Please help!
231441 tn?1333896366 Better to be inconvenienced now, but have a healthy baby! This is still only about 8 weeks, and the risk for overt diabetes climbs as the pregnancy progresses. So let's see. At least we're starting early. Fasting this morning was 105. The numbers go higher when I sleep in (and go for longer than usual without eating) - and I was feeling too unwell to eat last night I just got home and crashed... Feeling better today. Have a great day all.
Avatar m tn According to the Diabetes Association, diabetes is diagnosed when you have TWO consecutive tests showing a fasting blood sugar >126. "I'm concerned about having Tx for diabetes recommended when it's not necessary. I'm going to wait until after Tx before I have any testing for diabetes." I agree with Jim that at this point, the important thing is getting through treatment since you only have a few weeks left.
Avatar n tn I dont want to go ask for a test if my symptoms dont seem to coincide with diabetes. With gestational diabetes it was hard to tell the symptoms vs. the pregnancy symptoms. I was insulan dependant both pregnancies by injection every night for my fastin numbers.
1469903 tn?1286650297 • high amounts of glucose in the urine, which leads to dehydration and causes increased thirst and water consumption; • weight loss despite an increase in appetite; • fatigue; • nausea; • vomiting; • bladder, skin, and vaginal infections; • blurred vision; and • lethargy What is diabetes? Diabetes mellitus is a group of metabolic diseases characterized by high blood sugar (glucose) levels, that result from defects in insulin secretion, or action, or both.
Avatar n tn i had unprotected sex 3 times with a guy who i later found out is in the high risk category for HIV (former meth addict and bisexual) he never ejaculated to my knowledge two weeks after our last encounter i got the flu - nauseau, diarhea, loss of appetite, mild fever this went away after a few days two weeks after that i feel these symptoms come back, this time with sore throat i put two and two together and go to my doctor, explaining my situation she thinks i just have a regular virus but ref
Avatar n tn There are a few links between diabetes and thyroid disease -- hyperthyroidism increases blood sugar and in many cases both are caused by the immune system attacking the body (pancreas in diabetes and thyroid in Graves/Hashimoto's). Certainly testing glucose (sugar) levels would sort this out. But your symptoms may all be from hyperthyroidism or possibly side-effect of the anti-thyroid medication (esp nausea, muscle/joint pain).
Avatar f tn The combination of medications you described is quite commonly used as some of the first agents for treatment of high blood pressure, even in a population of those with diabetes or prone to diabetes. Control of your blood pressure is of course extremely important. Please discuss your concerns with your doctor. Perhaps he/she would consider switching you to a different combination given your concerns, or alternatively simply watch and test you for hyperglycemia in future.
