Avatar m tn I have recently diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, my fasting blood sugar was 175. I am sure that these are on the higher side of the scale. My doctor adviced me to go retest after 2 weeks of exercise and strict diet control. Hence i completely changed my diet, no sugar, substantial decrease of carbs, relying on vegetables and sprouts or protein contents with additon to the 5-6 KM of walking. After two weeks when i went on re test, it was 140 on fasting. I have not used any medicine.
Avatar n tn Exercise and watch what you eat, that would have the potential for eliminating the type 2 portion of your type 3, or at least mitigating the effects. The diet and exercise change would also affect the type 1 side, as it would lower your insulin needs, make your body more sensitive instead of less sensitive to insulin, and it would help your mental outlook simply by being healthier. Other than that, just continue to work with your doctor and monitor your blood sugars.
Avatar n tn They could be suffering from DKA which is a medical emergency and needs a trip to the ER. DKA is usually suffered by Type 1's only, but occasionally a type 2 can have it. More dangerous in the short terms are lows. Anything under 60 should be treated. Some people say 70. I would err on the conservative side if the jobs entail anything dangerous like machinery or driving in which case the person should stay over 80.
Avatar f tn Some people with Diabetes Type 2 need oral medications and others need insulin. (Type 2 diabetes means they don't produce enough insulin. Type 1 means they don't produce ANY insulin.
Avatar n tn In Type 1 diabetes, about 60 percent of those individuals develop kidney disease. I was just wondering - of all the Diabetics on this forum .... how many have had endocrinologists put you on medication to *prevent* kidney failure soon after your were first diagnosed? My endo is really pushing to put me on medication in case (and I stress the words "in case") I may get Kidney Disease. I have no signs of it or have it now. My Kidneys are healthy.

Avatar f tn My husband has Type 2 Diabetes. About 2 times a week he wakes up in the mornings with nausea. What is the cause of this?
Avatar n tn I have been taking Anastrozole for about two and half years for stage 1 ER/PR positive breast cancer. About a year after I started taking the drug, I was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes that is not particularly well controlled, even though I take two different prescriptions. A few months after that I was diagnosed with high cholesterol. For that I now take Lipitor, which has lowered the total cholesterol quite a bit.
Avatar n tn While my son has received therapy for controlling his emotions and anger, I further have discussed moving him off Advair and back to Flovent over the next month out of concern for side effects of the drug. My son switched over to Advair sometime in late 2007 or early 2008. Symptoms my son exhibits are anxiety, nervousness, restlessness, sleep problems, lack of weight gain, low appetite. My son has weighed 64 lbs. for the last year. He grows in height but not weight.
Avatar f tn Hi, I am so sorry I missed your question, it did not come up in que when you write the most recent question. Type 2 diabetes can develop into a type of Type 1 later on IF the pancreas is not able to keep producing enough insulin. This is not definite and only happens to certain individuals. Complications related to diabetes are mainly from high glucoses and not the medications taken. All medications can have side effects ofcourse, herbals, teas etc included.
Avatar f tn My parents are lot concerned about type 2 diabetes (cause of heredity) of my boyfriend. His Blood sugar level is completely under control for past 12 months. He developed diabetes only during 2006- Less then 14 months! Only during first two months it was high.Now its under control! My parents are worried and concerned about our marriage. Looks like they are unhappy, feared about the complications, Child birth and may reject the proposal.
Avatar f tn They never mentioned anything in the literature about the side effects after the testing. Most of what I read was about the nausea, headach, etc at about the 1 hour mark, which I got almost immediately. Should I still be having issues with fatigue, and nausea 24 hours plus later? I get the test results on Wednesday.
Avatar n tn What is peripheral neuropathy and how is it related to chemotherapy (Interferon)? The body's nervous system is divided into two major systems; the central nervous system and the peripheral nervous system. The peripheral nervous system is also divided into two major parts, the somatic nervous system and the autonomic nervous system.
488724 tn?1253554835 Do you think i could have Type 1 instead of Type 2 cause how could i progress so fast in not even 2 years yet, going from great control with just the metformin to poor control with so much, i've heard type 2s go to insulin but over 20 years not 2. And im only 22 and weigh 176, i've lost 20 pounds since diagnosed. So shouldnt i be needing less insulin not more if im a true type 2? #2: Could my eyes go this bad this fast from my sugar, am i looking at blindness at a young age?
Avatar f tn Wow, so sorry to hear about your problems. The side effects vary so greatly from person to person… it’s hard to know in advance how much it will affect you. It shouldn’t prevent you from caring for your children entirely, but it might make things challenging for you. My personal experience with the meds wasn’t too bad; I managed fairly well. Others report having to alter their work schedules and sleep habits, etc.
747988 tn?1396540478 I gained a lot of weight after treatment and then within a had numerous other health issues such as recurrent mild depression, high blood pressure and type 2 diabetes. I seemed to have much less physical energy than before treatment. I've come to realize that these other health problems were NOT the direct result of treatment, but more likely the result of the WEIGHT GAIN after treatment.
Avatar f tn The smallest dose of synthroid is 25 mcg and many people split that in 1/2 for a beginning dose of 12.5. The main side effects of levo or synthroid are those of hyperthyoidism, which results from over medication, unless you are sensitive to the fillers/binders. It takes between 4-6 weeks for a med change to take effect, so what you're feeling after only 2 weeks is most likely not the synthroid, unless you are especially sensitive to meds. What are the ranges for the Free T4?
Avatar m tn -) Yeah, I agree, why change a med who work great for you, I think the beta-blocker are second line or even third or now fourth line agent in the management of hypertension because of the bad reputation of the Atenolol and it's link to provoking type 2 diabetes and increase LDL and lowering HDL effect... as well as performing less well than a simple diuretic to lowering the blood pressure...
Avatar m tn Cholesterol is needed for many vital body functions. Statins have many side effects. Increased risk of Diabetes, Liver damage, muscle pain - just to name a few.
Avatar n tn YOu are very sensitive to the agitating effect so you might want to ask your doctor to switch. If not, ask him re klonopin to be used judciously to cut down that effect.
Avatar f tn She has all the side effects listed. My question for anyone on this drug is #1 Do the side effects ever go away (Level Off ) or will she remain tired and sluggish all the time. #2 Is your memory always effected? Having two small kids makes this a very hard time.
