Common Questions and Answers about Diabetes walk run


Avatar n tn My first question is why haven't u gone to see your doctor??????? U could have a blood clot! I would run not walk to the Dr. and your diabetes, ask yourself this if in the last yr it has gotten out of control, why? Maybe u have stopped eating the right foods or maybe u need medications to help u now. Run, run, run, to the doctor....
1300526 tn?1275775221 When I say this to my doctor he just says make sure all of the food you eat is good food, sure I did that and for a long time I waited for my pains to get less and it never did happen, possibly because I had neuropathy years before I was diagnosed with diabetes, so who even knows if it is diabetes that caused it but I am sure it is not helping it any, I worked on heavy machines out in cold weather in steal toed rubber boots for 11 years on a midnight shift and I am hearing now that this kind o
Avatar n tn She says she does not think it is MS but is not sure what is wrong. Okay so now I'll give you a run down of my problems. As a child I had quite a few bladder infections. Around the age of 16 legs would give out on me at times. I had 3 C-sections at ages 18, 20, and 21. At 23 I had a partial hysterectomy. By the age of 24 I was having a lot of different symptoms.
10134585 tn?1409678292 I brought the kitten home and was feeding her with a bottle and she seemed to be doing fine. A couple weeks later the kitten became unable to walk and it's head was flopping from side to side. We took her to the vet and they ran some tests but everything came back ok and they gave her two prescriptions and she seemed to perk up and started walking again. Then we noticed her front paw was flopping and appeared to be deformed-not a really big deal.
Avatar m tn ) Also, since I tended to be inactive past noon, my OB asked me to start walking in the evenings (I usually do 1-2 hour walk post-dinner or a 1 hour walk pre-dinner.) My fasting levels dropped immediatly to the mid-low 80s. (My other levels have alwasy been "perfect." My A1C was 5.4%) My question: I took my Fasting Blood Sugar this morning 1.5-2 hours after waking up. (I had run out of strips last night and the pharmacy was closed.) My level was elevated (96.
Avatar n tn told me the 130s were ok for after meals. And I still run higher then that. I wouldn't worry about one reading though but if that's high for you and you are still worried you can always call your Dr.
327385 tn?1378364331 Run away from that doctor immediately! You might be better served by a neurologist since your problem is located in your brain/pituitary and you've had brain surgery. Most endocrinologists deal with Type I or Type II diabetes (not DI), few deal with thyroid conditions and still very, very few deal with pituitary conditions. You are *not* obese - you have dealt with brain tumor, brain surgery, and now DI.
146866 tn?1199599344 Get your doctor to run a full GTT with insulin levels. You'll see if you: Have insulin resistance IGT IFG (the above raise your risk for T2 dramatically, in fact, you almost certainly can't get T2 without going through the above stages at some point) or full blown T2 (normal fasting sugar and a 2hr PP of 200 or more is full blown diabetes) If you have none great. Stay healthy, keep watching. Exercise! (you need it for health in any event). You can check your sugars even if you are normal.
Avatar f tn Just because an aunt or even your mom may have had it doesn't mean you get it. How ignorant. But if you have actual diabetes in your family you run a higher risk yes. Also if you are considered iver weight you are high risk. I have it currently. 29 wks along. Doc told me as long as i make sure my blood sugar stays under norm numbers. It will go away after birth. It also means baby will possibly be born with low blood sugar due to it. And ve fed sugar water to get sugars to norm levels.
Avatar f tn I was told to not eat anything after 8pm the night before I had my gestational diabetes blood work. Prior to that I ate my regular meals plus a slice of cake during the day and a snow cone thar afternoon before. I failed my gestational diabetes test and had to go back and do the 4 hour testing. I was advised by a friend not to eat any sweets 2 days prior to test because apparently sugar stays longer and slower in your body while pregnant.
535822 tn?1443980380 I feel that if the parents and the 13 year old child does not want the chemo then that is their decision. There was a case in 1994 with a boy 16 yrs. old that had Hodgkins disease and decided that he did not want radiation or chemo and to go through natural methods.
Avatar f tn I have gestational diabetes anybody have any tips im good at eating healthy and maintaining my diet but i get bored of the same things and crave ice cream!!!
Avatar f tn From the symptoms you described, it does not appear to be diabetes related, but it is still possible that you might have gestational diabetes which your healthcare provider should be checking for. As for your cholesterol you need your blood drawn to check the levels.
Avatar n tn I didn't say you have to "kill yourself" exercising - I do a simple walk, 3.6 on my treadmill - I do NOT run, like some folks are prone to do...not unless I feel like it, which is rarely, giggle....but ANY exercise is better than NO exercise. There are a LOT of folks who will NOT do ANY exercising at all! It's to those folks to whom I am really speaking. I'm usually on another/different diabetic website and you wouldn't believe some of the reasons folks give to get out of exercising.
Avatar f tn My feet and ankles sometimes hurt so bad I can't sleep or walk. I am on Lyrica for fibromyalgia and it makes the swelling worse.My blood sugar is coming down slowly with the insulin.I was put on another blood pressure pill but it made the swelling worse. I take Lisinopril and a water pill and am trying another new pill. My blood is still high. I wonder if I should go off the Lyrica? I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia 40 years ago. I have lumps in all the adipose tissue on my body.
Avatar n tn Another benefit is that I lost a half a pound in the past five weeks! Does Type II diabetes run in your family. It is prevelent on both sides of my family, so I know it was just inevitable that I was going to get it. I was kind of surprised for some reason, though. My mom couldn't believe I was surprised. She said she knew I would have it. I am surprised you're hungry all the time! I'm not at all, but I'm not really counting calories. I am just counting carbs.
Avatar n tn sugar in the blood is not healthy. I use insulin because I agree that the oral drugs effect the pancreas and/or the liver and I didn't think that was wise after transplant. Recently I've read of some negative effects of insulin too so I guess there is no perfect solution to this serious disease. But, I do think glucose control is the primary objective regardless of how it is achieved.
Avatar n tn I would RUN, not walk, to my doctor and have a fasting blood sugar done. If the results are high, you can be put on medication. If low or normal, I would absolutely insist on a glucose tolerance test in order to discover whether the faintness is due to hypoglycemia. If driving a vehicle when dizzy, you could easily kill yourself or others. Both conditions are easily treatable, but not knowing is certainly dangerous.
Avatar f tn Hi Everyone, Well my hubby has been dx'ed with diabetes. He had been having excessive thirt, URGENT urination, and had lost 12 lbs without even trying. I kinda knew what it was before we even went to the doc, so I prepared him for it. Basically, nobody likes to be dx'ed with anything, but this is not too bad.
Avatar n tn Ok ive had diabetes for 5 years this coming week and i am 15 years old. Diabetes has deffinently changed the way that i go out with friends and i relieze that i cant do all the things that they do to have fun, like drink alcohol. I know that alcohol and diabetes doesnt mix but im curious to know if marijuana has any other side effects on a person with diabetes or if it is still the same as a non diabetic.
Avatar m tn I was diagnosed with type two diabetes about 18 months ago and feel I can easily accept the changes to diet that I need to adopt. I am controlled with metformin and that is where the problems came in. The good news about metformin is that you cannot hypo so it is fairly risk free. The bad news is what it does to your digestion. I could tolerate the cheap stuff at all, suffering appalling stomach cramps and enough wind to run a small power station.
Avatar n tn It was like a light bulb went off in his head and asked if I've ever been tested for diabetes. I said no, but it does run throughout everyone on my moms side. Even my 2 sisters have it. So I've been pricking my finger 2 to 3 times per day since January this year. As I said, A1c blood test in January was 5.7. I go back for another test May 11th. My daily meter and this app shows avg. 6.3 A1c. The only time I'm ever under 100 is when I first wake up. Rest of the day runs from 126 to 200.
Avatar n tn I was wondering if 53 is normal after my run, I did run in the morning after eating an hr before.
325405 tn?1262293778 I gained 90 pounds being pregnant (gestational diabetes which turned in to full blown diabetes) two years ago, and before that, I was normal weight. I have been watching calories the last two years, maintaining a diet of around 1200 to 1400 calories, but the doctor said that caloric intake with the insulin resistance thing was not going to help me, it's the carbs.
Avatar n tn This upsets me very much and I explained it to him and he says it is because of his diabetes. I assume that because he wants to lead a normal life that he never really thinks about what he is saying might not be right due to memory issues. I have learned to see the signs of low and high sugar and I know that he is very aggitated and is angried easy during and I can deal with that.
1569575 tn?1314427659 I desperately want to exercise, but due to my mostly sedimentary lifestyle in the past 10 years, I can barely walk across the street to the park without getting completely winded and having to sit down for a while just to breathe again. My blood pressure in a "sitting" position is normally 145/100. When it comes to my diet, I love meats (chicken, lean hamburger, etc.) and unprocessed cheese. I'm a big protein person.
Avatar n tn She also seems hungry all the time.Could she possibly be developing type 2 diabetes? Do the symptoms of diabetes fluctuate at the onset accounting for the on/off of her symptoms?Could water retention from the extra fluids account for the rapid weight gain?She is 52 pounds and approx. 41 inches tall,breastfed until 14 months of age. Is it even possible at her age to get type 2?I assumed it couldn't be type 1 because of weight gain rather than loss.
Avatar m tn i have type 2 diabetes and take metformin. i am trying to lose weight by doing the 2 meal replacement shakes from herbalife. is herbalife bad or good for type 2 diabetes. i drank a shake this morning for breakfast and then tested my blood sugar it was 170 and the night before when i went to bed it was 110. i'm also working out trying to lose weight. does herbalife meal replacement shakes raise your blood sugar, therefore bad for type 2 diabetes ?
Avatar m tn I have had 2 different opinions from the Docs on this. One says this is totally normal, and the other calls it pre-diabetes. Hoping some of you with experience can help me out? I eat around 130 carbs daily during the weekdays (Breakfast: plain organic oatmeal, ground turkey. Snacks: seeds & nuts, Lunch: spinach & broccoli salad w berries & banana. Dinner: lean meat with more veggies).
Avatar n tn So, my first recommendation is that you find a doctor who is a specialist in treating diabetes. Your local Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation chapter may be able to recommned some names to you. The goal is for you to be able to eat a healthy and well balanced diet and to take the amount of insulin required for your body to be able to use that food effectively for energy and to keep you in general good health.
