Avatar n tn It's gonna be like that untill someone extraordinary finds a way to completely fix type 2. Type 1 will never be fixed, but one day we may understand why it happens and will be preventable. For now it's either drastically lowering the consumption of carbs, or the drugs. There's no inbetween.
427279 tn?1210923421 The main use for metformin is in the treatment of diabetes mellitus type 2, especially when this accompanies obesity and insulin resistance. Metformin is the only anti-diabetic drug that has been proven to reduce the cardiovascular complications of diabetes, as shown in a large study of overweight patients with diabetes.[10] Unlike the other most-commonly prescribed class of oral diabetes drugs, the sulfonylureas, metformin (taken alone) does not induce hypoglycemia.
Avatar m tn Since your were so recently checked, it seems unlikely you could have developed mircoablumin from you diabetes.... Sometimes people normally spill protein for various reason. I read up on daonil and didn't see a side effect of urine sudsing. I suspect you will need to check with your doctor. Here is a quote from Wikipedia - Proteinuria (/prəʊtiː'n(j)ʊəriə/, from protein and urine) means the presence of an excess of serum proteins in the urine.

Avatar m tn The stars are pin point of bright lights. Mostly there all the time especially when i look at the sky. I have diabetes type 1 due to removal of 80% of my pancreas. I just had a check up at the eye doctor for a check up and a base for my diabetes. I know i have ocular migraines. These are not the same. I,m 48 and suffer from chronic panceratitis, gastropararises, hypothyriodism, and take many meds. I wander if all my meds. could be causing the stars or something else.
Avatar n tn It sounds as if the MD is thinking that the vomiting is due to virus (hence, only give water to avoid dehydration) and is not taking into consideration the dangers of ketones in a type 1 diabetic. I, too, would question the advice given by the doctor. It is possible that the child has high glucose levels because of a virus, but still the ketones should be watched carefully and insulin increased given appropriately to lower those 300 levels to normal, sick or no.
Avatar n tn My wife is type 2 diabetes and she is pregnate. She had the procedure of blocking here tubes by using the Assure procedure by conceptus. The big deal is that she got this inplanted in here tubes by a certified doctor and she followed all of the steps and ended up pregnate 6 weeks after the tubes where blocked. Here doctor sent here to our local hospital and they confirmed that the tubes where completely blocked.

Avatar n tn I am a type 1 diabetic and have had diabetes for 22 years. Quite recently I have been getting dark flashes, more often at night but occasionally a couple during the day. A month ago I was experiencing a dull ache in my eye but this has since stopped. I have been getting better control over my diabetes with a HBA1c of 5.9 and have even managed to reverse the mild retinopathy which was .5 on the scale.
Avatar n tn I have some vanity pounds to lose but then who doesn't. I think I am pretty fortunate in that regard. Then I looked on wikipedia and it stated that PCOS is often not diagnosed so I am lucky in that regard as well. Let's talk about the symptoms that I do have. I think when I was about 14 I got my rear curves, at the time I attributed it to the neighborhood children not wanting to play kickball as much. When I was 15 I got my period.
Avatar m tn This appeared out of the blue in June 2012 (I say out of the blue because I don't take drugs, don't smoke, don't have diabetes, didn't have chemotherapy, and didn't take medicines for long periods of time -besides 1 week of cyprofloxacin in March 2012). I had a sexual exposure in February 2012 with bizarre symptoms exactly 2 weeks later that lead me to think on HIV (a cervical swollen lymph node, neck stiffness and then an urinary track infection), but I tested negative several times.
Avatar m tn - 1. Low carb, moderate protein, higher fat (fat is for added calories / replace the carbs reduced). The high triglycerides should also improve on a lower carb diet. Paleo or mediteranean style (without the bread/pasta/potato) are a good approach. 2. Lose weight if you are overweight. 3. Exercise. Exercise will also help improve HDL. 4. Avoid transfats / man-made fats (eat healthy fats - also to help HDL). 5. A glass of red wine regularly may also help with the HDL levels.

Avatar n tn I'm a 44-year-old late-onset Type 1. Diabetes came on suddenly, without any warnings, when I was 37. Due to my age and that I only dealt with general practitioners, I was initially diagnosed as a Type 2. I lived with that diagnosis and the associated therapies for 4 years, so I was mainly using diet and exercise to control my glucose levels.
Avatar n tn Hmmm, I'm just looking for advice on what kind of doctor I need to see to pursue this problem. I am a 51 yr old female with Type 2 Diabetes and currently taking glucophage 1000mg once daily. Saw my PCP for "memory loss" and she ran tests revealing a vitamin B12 deficiency, went in weekly for 4 wks for shots, then every 3 wks.
Avatar n tn I am a 32 year old female that was diagnosed with Type diabetes at age 15. I have been on insulin from then and for the last 4 or 5 years I have been on a pump. My HBA1C Levels have been good so I have no issues with my diabetes as far as I am concerned. I was diagnosed with Poly CysticOvarian Syndrome...I have never had normal periods and I have always had to deal with acne. In order to conceive my first two kids I did like 5 cycles of Clomid with each. All pregnancy's were normal.
Avatar n tn First time there, he took samples, said it was a yeast infeciton. Prescribed a form of sporanox. She was on that for roughly 1 month. We went back, he said to keep taking it, no real signs of improvement. Came back 2 1/2 months after first visit, he said the yeast infection is gone. No way that yeast could be living up there, he said, with the dosage she was on. So he said to start using lidocane (spelling?) on a cotton ball positioned at the opening of the vagina.

Avatar m tn 1) and adefovir (10:1), and the highest degree with the 300:1 combination of simvastatin plus entecavir; interactions with lamivudine (100:1) were the least favorable. In all combinations, the addition of the nucleoside/nucleotide agents did not increase the cytotoxicity (propensity to damage cells) of simvastatin.

Date: 13-11-2006 Journal: Toxicology and applied pharmacology (0041-008X) Release: Toxicol Appl Pharmacol. 2006 Dec;217(2):216-24 "These results suggest that low concentrations of artificial sweeteners enhanced detrusor muscle contraction via modulation of L-type Ca(+2) channels." 8.
Avatar m tn She is an endocrine specialist in pituitary tumors. I do have diabetes type 2. I welcome any informative comments on diet, this condition or items I should consider.
1610916 tn?1344608814 I dread lying on my back for 1 1/2 hrs because I go numb and my feet and legs get spasms so bad. Although no siatica pain or pinched nerve in back as some people get. So this will be interesting. I will be sure to keep informed as to what is going on. I hope this is the last of this for now! I will find out if I have a Pancreatic Gene in about 2-3 weeks from the study. I have had pancreatits and don't smoke or drink. My family has a HX of the cancer.
Avatar m tn Suggest to your doctor that he check you out for non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, check your thyroid levels and also do a blood test to check your HBA1C level (this is to detect if there is any signs of diabetes). Having itching can also be a symptom of diabetes as well as an indication that your body is fighting a bacterial infection. And yes, you are right, your ears have nothing to do with your tummy pains.
1130715 tn?1262104030 I too have developed type II diabetes. I control it with diet and exercise. I have a bunch of other things that have developed as a result of having HEP-C so long, but I won't get into that. In answer to your question about the ammonia, here is what I've found through my research. My Dr. says a high ammonia leval in the blood is an indication that protiens are by passing the liver, possibly from bridging or scaring in the liver. The norm is 0-40 anything over 60 can cause encephalopathy.
Avatar n tn Hey Pete, i use Stevia in liquid form and I love it! Type 2 diabetes runs in my family going back 3 generations. In addition, I am overweight, so at a more pronounced risk. I hate artificial sweeteners, so researched and tried Stevia. I do not like the powder form much, but I use the liquid form in hot and iced tea, in lemonade, and have just started experimenting with pies. I love baking sweet potato pie. Stevia tends to work well here because except for the crust; flour is not involved.
335728 tn?1331418012 Then with my first pregnancy I had gestational diabetes. Then 4 years ago I was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes. For lo those 40 years, I never followed the right diet. For the past year I have followed a modified Atkins diet, have lost 40+lbs, and now do not have to take the oral diabetes medication. I'm one of those who can't add much fruit at all, without spiking my blood sugar. Oh well, good thing I love steak, lobster, pork, and nuts and cheese.
Avatar f tn Mix 1/4 teaspoon of baking soda (sodium bicarbonate, not baking powder) in an 8 ounce glass and drink it. If sufficient quantities of acid are present in the stomach, bicarbonate of soda is converted into gas, producing significant bloating and belching within 5 or 10 minutes of drinking the mix. Little or no belching is suspicious for low stomach acid. Digestive enzyme supplements are good for high or low acid production (low acid is by far more common).
Avatar m tn I was told it is subclinical hashimoto so can, but don't have to, start on levo but no proof that it helps. I have been feeling worse and worse so I tried 1 type of levo, it made me very ill so I quit after a week as I was falling down every now and then and felt ten times worse. Received a different med but that one gave me a fever attack of 2 days so quit that one too as I was sick as a dog from it.
Avatar m tn I did have a couple of times where i had a white type of residue on the tip of my penis in the morning that wiped off with water, I never had any discharge. A week and a half ago I had what i think is a pimple on my butt left side, late last week another on the right side, and yesterday another one on the left side.
