Avatar n tn I am male, 44. Found diabetes before eight months. I am not taking any medicine. Once I visited a doc who precribed me a long list of medicines and again I declined to take the medicines. My count is about 240(fasting) and about 300 rendom. I am quite normal with my health. I heard that the medicine will create the health unbalance.

Avatar n tn It made me more conscious of other physical symptoms I had had, including an inflamed nerve in my left arm and leg from two years earlier that I believed had never gone away. I was convinced I had MS. When I finally saw the neurologist, he scheduled an MRI of the brain and that revealed nothing except sinusitis. I thought I would feel relieved when the test came back negative but I couldn't let go of my anxiety.
Avatar f tn What exactly are the "concerning" symptoms for MS? I've heard of so many having "odd" symptoms and being told its anxiety to later find out it was actually MS. Why is it so hard to diagnosed and so easily brushed off as symptoms of anxiety?

1390055 tn?1365618655 They both recommended I discontinue the medication because I might have Diabetes. I looked up Diabetes and things seemed to match up, but my mother allowed me to use her diabetic blood testing kit, and my blood sugar was 88. I ran it a second time, and it was 86. A urine culture done by my urologist less than a week after the treatment had finished found no signs of diabetes in my urine, either. My primary care physician told me I definitely do not have it, as well as my urologist.

Avatar f tn "For people without diabetes, the normal range for the hemoglobin A1c test is between 4% and 5.6%. Hemoglobin A1c levels between 5.7% and 6.4% indicate increased risk of diabetes, and levels of 6.5% or higher indicate diabetes." - WebMD. I have a numbness feeling all over due to nerve damage from chronic insulin resistance myself. When I developed pre diabetes I also showed up with tingling in my fingertips and a burning sore tongue to name but two symptoms.
1806721 tn?1554337007 Could stomach and urine tract infections explain all the symptoms that I have? Should I request my doc to run a thorough diabetes screening test? It looks like a recent study also links h pylori infection with diabetes. Apprarently, something is not feeling right and I'm quite concerned. If you hsve been taking statins for a long time, could you please share your personal experience and observations? Thank you!
Avatar n tn Surgery, additional testing, medication, life style changes, anything else? I read, I think on WebMD, that there is a danger of the blockage breaking off and clogging the entire artery? How common is this and is there anything that be done to prevent it from happening? Originally this sounded like a good thing because the breakage will reduce the size of the blockage but then it sounds dangerous. Thanks for your input. R.T.
Avatar m tn OK someone I care about a lot has been complaining of pain in her ribs for some time now so I took what she has said about it and ran it through the WebMD Symptom Checker. What follows is everything she has told me about the issue. Me: Where does it hurt exactly? Her: like my rib area again, on both sides Me: and the pain is near the outside by your ribs not deeper like inside your stomach?
Avatar n tn which is completely normal, but then a few hours later I get very fatigued and start to lose most of my energy. As I am typing this I feel the symptoms and it really messes with my productivity. There are days where I have gone to work and had to deal with it throughout the day and, while I can pull through, it really hits me harder later on.
Avatar m tn Dear Girlfriend of shinethedog, Re: "carries excess weight on his abdomen only, sweats easily, is hot at night, although cool to touch. These are things I have noticed." I am very similar as you describe.............and make notations of things like this for his Primary Care Physician and Cardiologist. I am 58 years of age - have had an Ejection Fraction of 10-15% since '03.
251908 tn?1189759431 Assessment of the relationship between atypical antipsychotic use and glucose abnormalities is complicated by the possibility of an increased background risk of diabetes mellitus in patients with schizophrenia and the increasing incidence of diabetes mellitus in the general population. Given these confounders, the relationship between atypical antipsychotic use and hyperglycemia-related adverse events is not completely understood.
Avatar m tn 10:18 PM I have been taking Prevacid for quite some time for acid reflux. Is it normal to have vise grip like pains around the upper portion of the abdomen (just below the chest area) that goes from the front to the back? Nothing seems to alleviate the pain, not prevacid, rolaids or tums, not drinking soda quickly to help me burp. The pain continues. Stomach bloating is quite evident when this occurs. It hurts to breathe deeply. I have had this pain constantly for 5 days now.
Avatar n tn You would be surprised how many symptoms come with this disease, you mention you have diabetes and have attributed everything to that disease. What kinds of symptoms are you experiencing? I wish you luck. I can't remember if you mentioned having an ultrasound.
Avatar m tn My family and wife were glad for it to be done and here I am jumping right back on another group of random symptoms. Even my neuro said you could find any disease with random symptoms like fatigue, can't eat, etc, etc.
Avatar f tn Please post the range for the TSH results. Most docs will not run tests other than TSH, if that number is within normal range (although normal doesn't always mean "normal"). I suggest that you talk to your general practioner about all of your symptoms and allow her/him to refer to the specialists in those areas. Have you been screened for diabetes?? Do you have any hypothyroid symptoms?? You can google "hypothyroid symptoms" to see a list of symptoms.
Avatar n tn From WebMD: "Albumin is tested to: Check how well the liver and kidney are working. Find out if your diet contains enough protein. Help determine the cause of swelling of the ankles (edema) or abdomen (ascites) or of fluid collection in the lungs that may cause shortness of breath (pulmonary edema).
Avatar f tn Hi, How are you? It is indeed unlikely that the pruritus is associated with the antibiotic if it has been present for a few weeks after you discontinued it. The itchiness could be due to irritation, skin conditions, and even underlying medical issues such as diabetes, anemia, kidney or liver conditions. If it persist, it is best that you have this checked by your doctor and have additional diagnostic tests done to rule out these differentials. Take care and do keep us posted.
Avatar n tn This prompted me to see my family physician, but my GP was able to explain my symptoms from poor sleeping position and the fact that only a day before I had been standing for a very long time and I tend to place more pressure on my left foot (we think). Satisfied with this diagnosis, I went on vacation (which had been scheduled some time before) but the symptoms persisted, albeit in a come-and-go fashion., i.e. they weren't always there.
Avatar m tn The dose of your diabetes medication might need to be changed. Some medications used for diabetes include glimepiride (Amaryl), glyburide (DiaBeta, Glynase PresTab, Micronase), insulin, pioglitazone (Actos), rosiglitazone (Avandia), chlorpropamide (Diabinese), glipizide (Glucotrol), tolbutamide (Orinase), and others.
Avatar m tn Cellulitis is a bacterial infection. The Hep C treatment, per se, would not cause it, but if your immune system is lowered, you are at greater risk for developing Cellulitis. If you have had edema of the lower extremities caused by fluid retention caused by cirrhosis, you are at greater risk of developing Cellulitis. The main thing to keep in mind is to seek medical treatment right away if you have cellulitis. See article below: Cellulitis: from WebMD "Cellulitis - What is cellulitis?
Avatar f tn White spots on a brain scan can be from several different factors: *A natural phenomenon of the brain due to the coating of axon nerve fibers with myelin *Hardening of small arteries in the brain from high blood pressure, causing a buildup of fluid *Early onset of a stroke or another neurological condition eg: MS, lyme's disease, lupus *Vitamin B12 deficiency - leads to demyelination *Migrane *Brain injury *Infectious diseases that have occurred in the past *Celiac's disease ***
Avatar m tn Vitamin E might increase the risk for heart failure in people with diabetes. People with diabetes should avoid high doses of vitamin E. Heart attack: Vitamin E might increase the risk for death in people with a history of heart attack. People with a history of heart attack should avoid high doses of vitamin E. Low levels of vitamin K (vitamin K deficiency): Vitamin E might worsen clotting problems in people whose levels of vitamin K are too low.
Avatar m tn I have been spending too much time on webmd and freaking myself out. Dr said just to take some aleve twice a day. Well that didn't work and I had severe burning in groin area. I got some relief with bowel movements. Went back to Uroligist and he ordered a CAT scan for this coming Monday and stated that it sounded like I was just really inflamed in my groin area. He gave me a persciption for Naproxen for six months. This has helped a little.
Avatar m tn Or you might force the issue with a same day urgent appointment, telling your symptoms and find out your results that way. Also, you might make sure you are well hydrated (not with sodas as they are dehydrating), in case that's an issue. If you call the doctor, you might ask if you ever have had your ferritin (iron stores) tested, as even if you had a normal CBC, low iron can cause dizziness and fatigue and not enough oxygen to the brain, making concentration difficult.
Avatar f tn The tests use to diagnose it are sketchy, becuase they can also diagnose diabetes, and a few other things as well, and must be very carefully interpreted by using a large panel of lab work. Also, does she startle at loud noises and does this cause her to have muscle contractions? Check out this link I found, it is VERY descriptive, the best one I could find so far, if I find any other's I'll post them for you too. Let me know what you think, ok? http://www.emedicine.com/neuro/topic353.
