Avatar n tn Do these people truly believe every single insulin diabetic will have one or many lows in their diabetic lifetime while working? I can totally understand their reasoning, but who is to say they will have a low while on duty?
198187 tn?1190637930 I'm more tired than normal. But I go to work everyday, not missed a day. I work in the legal field and I analyze law all day, speak to clients, and prepare documents. I’ve had no problems functioning. I’m still driving, cooking dinner when I get home. My concentration seems to be on point. However, I have gained weight…about 15 pounds. Extremely unhappy with that. My face became a little puffy around the 1.5 week mark.
Avatar m tn If he does not get serious and take control of his diabetes, even with insulin and other diabetic medications, he will get nerve damage if he does not already have this. This is felt as pins and needles and also burning sensations and can be felt anywhere, but mainly under the feet. He will lose loss of sensations in the skin and in his genitals if he still engages in sexual pleasures. He will get skin problems, with severe fungal infections on his genitals and inside of the thighs.
Avatar m tn Most of my cookware is commercial grade heavy gauge and I got accustomed to it during two decades of cooking for a living. I understand that many people are cautious and erroneously believe that it has poor health implications. Even with foods that are highly reactive (ie. acidic), only a tiny teeny fraction of products prepared in aluminum leaches into what we consume.

Avatar n tn Type I Since 5 years old Now 32 years old. Big Party animal. Drank lots. Smoke weed everyday. Only way to "safely" drink for a diabetic is to run high blood sugars for at least 12-15 hours after drinking (ie. 6pm to 9am next morning) I even allow my BS to go up to 20 when drinking.

QUESTIONS: *has anyone been experiencing a more rapid pulse rate? mine was 103bpm today.
Avatar n tn Have you had your sugar levels checked? I am a diabetic and I have the same thing after I eat much of the time. I tend to spike up and rapidly drop on my sugar levels. It is worse after carb meanls for sure but sometimes it is any meal. I have had specialists tell me that isn't happening but I know it does cause I have tested my sugar every minute after eating for the first 10 min then every 5-10 after that for about an hour then just to see what was happening with it.
Avatar f tn My blood sugar is elevated because I am a diabetic metor read 395..took my medication and now 3 hrs later its 220. Dr appt for that next week.
874521 tn?1424120397 I'm still trying to convince Abby to eat his raw foods. Will have to start cooking it again. He seems to like that better. For now I'm just talking to them....really...I'm talking to my cats lol to get them to eat the food......just being patient and hoping I won't have to buy any more prescription food. I hope everything will go back to normal soon: PK's kitties eating raw food. *sigh*...

Talk to your doctor about the risks of using this medication for your condition.

Avatar n tn My wife in the last year even offered herself to a man with two months to live. Her alcoholic mother was living with the guy, Most of this is becoming reality now, I just confirmed the information, but my wifes affair with a married man earlier had no chance of success, yet she did it anyway. This is part of a cycle that happenes during late relapse. I came to a diiferent town 15 years ago , my life was destroyed by scandel, a career as a ranger wasted.
1498386 tn?1403031253 It ***** to watch them loss weight faster so I feed my husband more food when I’m cooking dinner and me less. Ohh small plates really help to control portion sizes. It will be hard at first but look at it as a life changing thing and not a short term.
Avatar n tn But my MIL isn't that way, and also to note, my MIL weighs 300 pounds, is diabetic, doesn't cook, doesn't clean, and needs as much (medical) attention as the baby does (and FIL smokes like a chimney and had adult ADD). I can't see how having the in-laws would beneficial here, I mean, I guess if I wanted to go out and take a walk or lunch without the baby, then that would be nice for them to stay and watch him. But, I can see me needing help around the house (cleaning, cooking, etc.
Avatar m tn For my husband, the 'condition' isn't just trigged by blowing his nose, sneezing, laughing ...It's also triggered by certain smells. Cooking smells, for example. I have to be very careful not to burn anything, or even sear something on a higher heat...the smell is almost certain to bring on the 'condition'. Have any of you found this to be the case, also? Thanks for all the information!
Avatar m tn but it's no way close to living a normal life. The constant lightheadeness is kicking my butt. I'm always off-balance and it makes me wonder if it's physiological or just anxiety. Reading the posts here actually convince me a bit it's just anxiety... which actually calms me a bit. But I'm seeing a neurologist for the first time next month, I'm hoping they find nothing wrong with my brain, then I'd definitely be sure it's just anxiety.
Avatar f tn I TAKE TRAMADOL 50MG, NOT EVERYDAY. BUT FOR BACK PAIN. JUST A FYI IT IS ADDICTIVE AND IT RELEASES SEROTONIN IN THE BRAIN MAKES U FEEL GOOD... ALMOST SPEEDY GOOD. I HAVE LOST 24 POUNDS I BELIEVE FROM TAKING IT. ITS ONLY BEEN 3 MONTHS SINCE I LOST THIS WEIGHT. I LIVE IN JERSEY SO ITS NOT CONSIDERED A CONTROLLED SUBSTANCE IN THIS STATE. IT DOES TAKE AWAY YOUR APPETITE AND YOU FEEL GOOD. IT WORKS FOR PAIN WELL FOR ME. I AM NOT SURE I WANT TO LOSE ANYMORE WEIGHT THOUGH.
356518 tn?1322267242 I just got home I have been staying with my son the past week and it was so nice. He really enjoyed Moms cooking again everyday and misses it. He was offered a big promotion this week too! I am so very proud of him:) My husband has been eating sandwiches this week so I need to go to the store and get some shopping done and fix him an awesome dinner tomorrow:) My girls got into a couple of pageants and won some savings bonds and trophies to add to their collection.
604197 tn?1292308636 it is not easy and it is not fair but it is my life and i am gonna smile everyday i am alive. 15 years ago i was not supposed to be here then 3 years later another accident from problem of the first one i should not be here and yet i am. i had a lot of problems and learned many solutions. i can only hope you have faith and find the silver lining in the dark cloud..
Avatar f tn I also changed my cooking habits. I only use kosher/sea salt, Mrs.Dash, and lots of fresh herbs to marinate meats & vegetables with, use Xtra-Olive Oil (not cooking oils). When I want something sweet I go for fruit or maybe half a english muffin with a teaspoon of flavored cream cheese. Losing weight is all about changing how you cook and what types of food you eat. I'm starting to get my self-confidence back, because I can now see that I am losing the weight. I hope this helps.
