Avatar n tn I am Type 1 since the age of 2 yrs---I'm 39 now---my memory is terrible!! Both short term, and long term. I have to write things down if I need to remember them. Other than that---my health is wonderful.
Avatar n tn 1 1/2 hours (the person I was with did not know what to do). I won't go into the short-term complications I experienced. However, I still experience weakness and mild pain in my lungs and periodic studdering. What are the long-term complications of a sustained seizure? Why do my lungs still hurt! Thank you so much!
Avatar n tn I'm not Dr. Gould, and I doubt that he's here. This is where all the patients and victims hang out and help each other along. We may not have medical degrees, but trust me, we are all students and graduates of the school of experience. Welcome to 5th floor.
Avatar n tn hi melvil and all goodwilling long term side effects concerned, I feel relieved not to be the only one after I found this thread. I experience kidney pain, exhaustion, teeth falling .thyroid upset. A result from,11 months high dose INF riba tx, (gen C1) ; even though tx over 2 years ago .now virus free. apparently low blood pressure n exhaustion corelated. Thus if one could rise blood pressure exhaustion may disappear.
Avatar n tn The traditional continuous treatment usually sees a progression of disease before 2 year. The long term effects of Zoladex is not yet established. So while the recommendation to continue is sound, a guide on what to expect with prolonged treatment is sketchy. If you think a break may make you feel better, more active, then you may take it. I hope I did not add more mud.
Avatar m tn Yoga and other forms of exercise have been shown to have a positive impact on every type of diabetes, including Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes. 3 Yoga Postures Yoga is an ancient practice of bending, stretching, and challenging the body to hold certain postures for a prolonged period of time. There are several different types of yoga, including Bikram (hot yoga), Hatha yoga (body balancing), and Ashtanga (rigorous) yoga. Each type of yoga provides different benefits and postures.
973741 tn?1342346373 Hi, We are talking about type 2 diabetes here. I will give a very simplified description of what happens. Obviously if you are at risk then the earlier you can adopt lifestyle measures the better your health will be. If you have a family history, even if you don't appear to have a current problem, then it is time to take action. Actually in America it is estimated that maybe 50% of the population are diabetic, prediabetic, or at risk of diabetes....
Avatar n tn Many overweight folks who develop diabetes have Type 2, but you haven't mentioned whether you have Type 2 or Type 1. Do you know which type you have? Folks with Type 2 who return to a healthy weight can often stop taking meds and can control their diabetes with exercise and a sensible diet. Technically, however, I don't think they are cured because if they drop their good self-care, their symptoms (and potential risks for other nasty complications) will all return).
Avatar n tn Hi Tim, Were you diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes or Type 1? Sometimes diagnosis (especially Type 2) comes after having the underlying condition for a long time and so symptoms have, as you point out, accumulated over time. While it may feel like a "long time" sicne diagnosis, you body was stressed for even longer before then and it may take time for your system to return to normal and to FEEL normal.
Avatar n tn Be sure to check your blood sugar, take your insulin, eat healthy and don't stress out. Complications are obviously possible but happen more with Type 2 diabetes. Your life will not be the same but you can still live a happy healthy rewarding full life as long as you do what the doctor tells you. Since you are a medical student you probably know about all the advances lately -- there are insulin pumps, glucose sensors, great meters, and new insulins.
Avatar f tn So even though the pain relief from the lidocaine infusion itself was relatively short, having it done regularly did produce positive long-term results in my case. And I've read multiple case studies published in respected medical journals to know that I'm not alone; lots of patients suffering from Dercum's Disease have seen documented, proven improvement from similar treatment plans involving regular lidocaine infusions.
Avatar m tn She exhibited all the symptoms mentioned above for about 2 weeks. It was hard to tell if it was caused by the Meds or if she was still recovering from the seizures,or if it was a side effect of the anesthesia she had during this. time. She was also leaking urine in her sleep. She's been on it about 2 months and she's playing and reduced her accidents. She is still hungry and thirsty but doesn't try to eat abnormal things.
1216899 tn?1288573925 Once you get your Vitamin D numbers up it still takes a long time for symptoms to resolve. Out of all my symptoms the off balance feeling is still with me. Go to http://www.medhelp.org/posts/recovery-after-vitamin-D-deficiency/Updates/show/1488373 for a list of many people's updates including my own. Studies show it can take many months at being in levels that are normal before patient's symptoms disappear.
Avatar n tn Have you checked what medications you took for treating your infections, to rule out that you are not suffering a long term adverse reaction? Viral infections do not require antibiotics, but sometimes they are prescribed. If you took any antibiotic of the quinolone family like cipro, levaquin, avelox, floxin, or the like, you should check first of all whether you are having a delayed, long term sensitivity, so common.
Avatar f tn What can I do about this besides wear the compression leg wear? I was diagnosed type 1 diabetes and in the icu when the clots developed... but I don't have circulation problems due to diabetes or neuropathy- I didn't have high bg for long enough to develop this. All this leg pain etc. developed after the dvt.

Avatar n tn I am a twenty one year old mother and my son is 2 1/2 years old and he as been experiencing the same symptoms as everyone else children. He's vomiting uncontrollably and it scares me. The doctor said it was a virus and perscribed me the generic brand of Zofran. I personally do not think it is a virus because it has occured to long. Everytime I touch his throat he starts to gag. I just want to know what is going on with my little boy and I appreciate any feedback.
Avatar n tn I make myself a red pasta sauce about once a month and devour it. This is a long term thing so you have to 'treat' yourself once in a while, just so long as it is once a month and not once a week. If you have access to a dietician that would be best. They can help you with meal plans and all sorts of other suggestions. I wasn't severe enough for a dietician, but I would have loved to go to one especially when I was first trying to figue this whole thing out. Good luck.
Avatar n tn I can be tired after 12 hours sleep! Can I be suffering symptoms from my thallassemia. Does any one else feel the same way that I do? This is a little bit hard for me, but I don't want to complain.
Avatar n tn I have done lots of research and talked to people that had IVF, and what I have concluded is that everyone has experienced similar symptoms. So, get some sleep and hang in there. I know the 2ww is a long long time but eventually it goes by... Best wishes!!!

1140722 tn?1266356279 Because POSE is an incision-free procedure, it offers several benefits including reduced risk of infection, shorter recovery periods, and no visible scarring. Though long-term results are not yet available, doctors believe POSE will be an effective surgical option for patients who need to lose between 50 and 100 pounds. Incision free weight loss surgery is performed under general anesthesia entirely through the patient’s mouth without any external incisions into the body.
Avatar n tn I have had type 1 diabetes for 38 years (I'm 48) with only eye complications (cataracts and minimal hemorrhaging - sight is 20/20 corrected). However, over the past year, I've had pain / stiffness in my left shoulder, wrist, elbow, hip, knee, and ankle..and it's getting worse, impacting everything I do. The pain worsens only AFTER I've done a simple activity including walking down the hall, typing on the computer, or lying flat.
Avatar n tn but it is much better than what I am imagining these days. I don't know how long the waits are in the USA for MRI's but this has been the longest 2 months in my life. (and that is a very SHORT time to wait for an MRI in Canada) SYMPTOMS ARE: -Fatigue (lots--worse in a.m.
174267 tn?1220408828 If it's an option then definately take that opportunity. I hope everyone else enjoys their long weekend. Unfortunately my long weekend was last week, but at least I was able to have a fews day rest without taking time off work. They get so picky about being off and I certainly didn't want to explain my situation. Toni, I am glad everything is going well with you and the boys. Just think in 11 to 13 weeks you'll be have three kids three and under.

728239 tn?1265140927 You have probably heard horror stories about the complications that can result from diabetes. These complications are often the result of long-term uncontrolled blood sugars. You can learn how to keep your blood sugars in target range the majority of the time. The key word is "learn". Diabetes is a complex condition that has nearly as many different variables as there are diabetics.
296076 tn?1371338074 I have had pre-diabetes for about 6 years and was classed as a Type 2 September 2013 when my HBA1C levels reached 6.9 mmol/l My husband is a Type 2 diabetic and is now on insulin and metformin which is working for him now. He became a Type 2 diabetic when he was 50 (he is 64 now). My mother too got diagnosed as a Type 2 diabetic in her 50s, and the reason it came about to have her urine checked by the doctor (she would not go) was when the optician asked "Are you a diabetic".
