Avatar f tn I have had this diagnosis for over a year but I have not been able to find a doctor that will help me find the reason I have it. I am not Diabetic. I cannot take Reaglan and my doctor indicates that I don't have any other options. He has talked about putting a tube in my neck and feeding me that way. I don't want that. I have been throwing up and bad (almost daily) diareaha for over 2 years now. I am at my wits end. I have become very depressed.
Avatar m tn I cut down on all stimulants, started eating smaller and more frequent meals and stayed hydrated but by far the most important thing was cutting ASPARTAME AND PHENALYNINE from my diet ! Without question this was the deciding factor. Aspartame is an artificial sweetener also known by the number 951. Once I stopped using this stuff my SVT stopped completely and I haven't had an episode in 2 yrs !!!! from once every couple of days to nothing !!
1303999 tn?1279585526 I am a Type II Diabetic. I currently take 1000mg twice daily of Metformin. Worked pretty well for me. Last week started on levothyroxine and now my blood sugar is through the roof. Anyone else have the same problems? It says I might have to alter my diabetes meds. If anyone is out there with the same thing can you recommend a medication that worked for you?

535822 tn?1443980380 For the entire day of her arrest, Keeslar was forced to remain in a dirty prison cell, wear a prisoner's uniform that was too tight and that cut off her circulation, and be fed meals that were improper for her diabetic condition. She was even reportedly refused access to her insulin medication, until finally she was released on $10,000 bail.
Avatar n tn This is certainly something I know about! I have it myself. What is the medication they gave you? If it is reglan, be very careful, because it can often have some nasty side effects. I take a medication called domperidone, I order it from New Zealand, because it is not sold here. It is a wonderful drug, has been on the market a long while, and is safe and legal to obtain from another country. There is no surgery per se to get rid of this condition.
Avatar n tn It will also include less serious issues like creative ways to wear a pump, since I know it can really be a struggle to wear a pump fashionably! I would like it to be comprised of contributions from diabetic teens, giving them a forum to discuss issues with eachother, and special place to show their art, writing, and whatever they would like to share. If you are, or know a teenage girl with diabetes, I would love any kind of input on the subject. Ideas, or if you'd like to be invloved.
Avatar m tn Glucose intolerant test involves, fasting, have a blood test taken, drinking a high glucose drink and then another blood test is taken and tested. This will confirm or not whether you are diabetic, bordeline diabetic or glucose intolerant. I experienced the symptoms of hypoglycemia and the doctor referred me to have a glucose intolerant test which confirmed that I am glucose intolerant and if do not modify my eating and drinking habits could end up being a diabetic within 10 years.
Avatar f tn I just found out some exciting information and have been using it with success for a few days! Vinegar, google vinegar and blood sugars. Two tablespoons before meals has great lowering effects on blood glucose spikes after meals. Just wanted to share!
568322 tn?1370169040 fat distribution, low hdl, high triglicerides and sluggish reaction after high carb meals. My docs, on the other hand, always point to my glucose level (don't have it handy) and say everything is fine. What readily available tests you would you run (or ask your doctor to run) in my position, starting with acceptable blood glucose levels. And which doctors specialize in this area. I've also heard some have bought one of the those finger stick, blood glucose monitors for self testing.

Avatar n tn He also has coughing, throat clearing, upper back pain (but rarely heartburn), and occasional coughing after meals. After reading more about GERD and relation to Asthma, I have insisted that he sleep with his bed head elevated 6 inches, which is reducing the asthma slightly (his specialist insists that sleeping elevated won't help GERD..not what I have heard). Life is pretty unbearable for him without the celebres, so what to do?
Avatar m tn It arrived last week a recommendation from Bandman Great Book for all you Insulin Resistant folks The formulas for eating in the book are very good for lifetime support of eating healthy and balancing protien carbs and fats in every meal and snack and never letting your body get into a starvation mode eating 5 meals a day is mandatory of well balanced small meals and the importance backing up everything Co has told me all along The book really explains the mechanics of how the body uses
Avatar n tn I have about 5% body fat. My mom is diabetic (type II) and her parents were diabetic (needed insulin shots, so type I?) My half-sister has Grave's Disease. I've been to the emergency room a few times because of headaches, but my blood sugar is always "normal". MRI's have shown nothing abnormal. I yawn incessantly after eating - especially during the afternoon. I can yawn 20+ times a minute for over an hour depending on how much I eat.
Avatar n tn hello i am diabetic. I have been a diabetic for 13 years and going strong. My mother also has it too. I am a type one diabetic. I believe that medical marijuana should be legal. I have been smoking marijuana since i was 14 i am now 20 i have had no problems and i mean none. i am currently in college as a soph.

630344 tn?1280108583 Milk Thistle -- 500 mgs taken twice a day with meals. L-Selenomethionine -- 200 mcgs twice a day with meals. Vitamin B12 -- 1000 mcgs once per day. Take this as the lozenge or as the capsule(at mealtimes). MSM (Methylsulfonylmethane) -- As the powder form -- 5 grams a day in a glass of water. Helps to repair skin and is a remarkable anti-inflammatory and pain killer. DMSO(Dimethylsulfoxide) has the same properties. You can buy MSM at any health store or from internet vendors such as ebay.
Avatar n tn My mother (my roommate) is a diabetic so; we’ve been eating our meals based on her diet. LOW CARBS, NO SUGAR, lots of salmon and chicken. When I do fall off the wagon, the sugar does upset my stomach. So, no more refined sugar for me. I use replacements like Agave Nectar (light), honey crisp apples or Vita waters for my sweet tooth. Had to cut out Blended Espressos with Caramel too. I read somewhere that bakery goods and foods made with flour are no very good for us either.
Avatar f tn 2 to 45 grams by mouth daily in divided doses, often administered just prior to meals, have been used in studies. Due to potential reductions in blood sugar levels caused by psyllium, blood glucose levels in diabetic patients should be closely monitored.
Avatar f tn I live on an acreage in NW Iowa (actually live on a gravel road) with my husband of 28 years and week-end son (who comes home for laundry and home cooked meals on the week-end; he is in college). The other kids are grown and on their own...I have two grand daughters; age 8 and 6; that live with their mom, my daughter, six miles from here. I can't wait to get into the garden, the Robins returned yesterday and life is wonderful! Along with a few bumps, I do have Peace in my life.
Avatar n tn As he is taking t4 If he forgets first thing in the morning he can take it later in the day (just put it in between meals), or he can take it the next day (double dose). Yes, he needs to be retested again in 4 weeks and his meds increased again (testing should also be FT3 and FT4 - which should guide therapy just as much as TSH - particularly if thyroid is involved). I don't think it's true that thyroid treatment will cause him to go through puberty early. That is wrong.
Avatar f tn You might be interested to know that there is a clinic in Australia that fasts obese people for over 100 days, and they do fine. There is a point, when you have no extra fat cells, that it becomes dangerous to Fast or be on a VLCD. The body still tries to attain more fuel by going after your structured fat needed by your body, then going after your organs. One more interesting tidbit before I close: By the 5th day of Fasting, your body no longer 'physically craves food'.
393685 tn?1425816122 an entirely strick diet of no gluten 2. a low glycemic-index diet similiar to what diabetic patients do in their nutrition intake To make it clear on potential participators, this would NOT be an alternative to what your doctors are treating you with. This is not an elimination of medications but just a simple choice to eat simply and avoid some things in addition to what your treatment plan is.
299260 tn?1304219705 A Strong Woman VS. A Woman Of Strength A strong woman works out every day to keep her body in shape… But a woman of strength builds relationships to keep her soul in shape. A strong woman isn't afraid of anything… But a woman of strength shows courage in the midst of fear. A strong woman won't let anyone get the better of her… But a woman of strength gives the best of herself to everyone.
502999 tn?1211508168 My girlfriend feels like this when her blood sugar drops. She is not a diabetic but she is hypoglycemic. She never has a problem after a good meal. I mean you can always get your blood sugar level checked when you feel this way. Easy enough. Another random though. This also sounds like classic sleep deprivation. When someone can not or does not sleep through the night for a period longer than a week. 3 good nights of rest would completely make that feeling go away.
144210 tn?1273092382 I eat whole wheat cereal with soy milk and will continue to do so. Like Forseegood, my friend, I have to eat about six small meals a day, and I get a lot of veggies and fruit. Forseegood: Hi! I've been in touch with HR and he has been most helpful. Much information about blood work has come out.........e.g. one of the first signs of fibrosis is a drop in Platelet count, low LDH, low Total Protein, low Albumin, and the old standard, elevated ALT & AST.
649848 tn?1534637300 Sip on water all throughout the day so that there is always something in your stomach.. and especially 15 minutes prior to eating your meals, drink a glass of water.. This will make you feel fuller quicker then you normally would, and will allow you to feel satisfied. My calorie intake so far has been just over 1000 calories/day.. but the diet is high in protein and fiber. I have also been exercising at home.. Doing squats and workout DVD's.. I feel great..
1117231 tn?1456613140 July 15th :D with our first, we had 2 m/cs last year so praying this is lucky no.3. So excited and scared at the same time!!
125112 tn?1217277462 Make sure that you are eating at least 5 small meals a day (you can find great diabetic diets on the Internet and South Beach follows it pretty closely). The sad thing is, no matter how many doctors we may - or may not - have available, sometimes we have to diagnose ourselves. :-( The glucose monitor is a simple and effective way to see if you have a sugar problem without jeopardizing your health (just your finger tips get sore!).
