Avatar n tn OK...this one is complicated. I am currently on Medicare/Medicaid and social security disability (I'm 28). I am wanting to go back to school (I have 2 bachelor's degrees) and get a masters in teaching grades 5-8. Thing is, the insurance company that covers teachers in South Carolina is Blue Cross/Blue Shield. They have a lovely thing called a "pre-existing condition" clause which, as I understand it, says anything I have (ie.
Avatar n tn Onlyinsulin option is? Going back to using the older insulins ( R & NPH) and that would Not be a good thing, they caused alot of Hypo's and very difficult to use.. As for the Test stips ? You can try using a Generic brand ( Wal Greens, Wal mart's, etc.) their stips are about 40% Less, but ck. for accuracy while you still have your currentmeter and 10-20 strips left.. Your stuck between being to " wealthy and Not poor enough", been there , done that myself for several yrs..

Avatar n tn thank you.... i am not doing well-- in fact i am terrible. it is funny that you said that about your thyroid-- my psychiatrist just told me mine was off a bit but not to worry about it-- and i am having TERRIBLE pain below my right rib cage-- but my liver panel is normal, and my gall bladder sonogram was normal-- my temperature is always 99.4 - 99.
173975 tn?1216261375 I got approved for 1 year of FMLA and have to have it redetermined in a year. But mine is for multiple health issues, as I am also diabetic. When I went thru treatment 13 years ago., I do not remember missing a day of work.' how wonderful for you. but it's impossible to compare apples and oranges.
Avatar m tn Well, I think it's time for you to get involved. Just as a diabetic has to change insulin intake at times, our thyroid meds requirements change over time with life changes. So, we have to stay on top of it all with periodic lab work and reassessment of symptoms. Your wife's symptoms just scream that her levels are not adjusted properly for her. The first thing you should do is get some recent lab work so we can evaluate how well her doctor is testing. Some doctors don't order a full panel.
Avatar f tn It's pitiful to have a credential like that engender something akin to crawling skin in me, instead of respect. I've just gone on Medicare in January, so I can go to different doctors than the ones I was limited to before, although Medicare is so complicated. I saw all 4 of the endos in my medical group, all TSH worshippers. Even my PCP was appalled. I'd be grateful for any help you can give. I'm on the Westside of Los Angeles, and my current doctor (of 23 years ) is at Cedars-Sinai hospital.
Avatar n tn I also am diabetic (type 2), and systemic lupus. My nuerologist blames mostly diabetes (although I am fairly o.k. at 6.1) I have many other health problems due to lupus. He started me on neurontin (300 mg. 3x daily). I also will be seeing a dieticionist and will be taking classes (How to deal with chronic illness- through Kaiser Permanente. Anyone have any suggestions?
Avatar m tn It is a condition that you can live a very fulfilling life, just might need orthodics, special shoes, and regular exercise to keep the muscles strong that you still have. www.mda.
Avatar f tn The blood test they are doing now will help them determine the condition of the liver and if he is diabetic. The CT scan will tell them the severity of his cirrhosis and the condition of his pancreas. It will also let them know if he has gall stones. This would be a large indicator that he has alcoholic pancreatitis. The blood you mentioned, weight loss, continuing to drink and the severe abdominal pain are all symptoms of this.
Avatar n tn I felt my right toes changing a year ago they like changed in shape, preventing me to wear certain shoes. I also have carpal tunnel in both hands. I did a lot of therapy for that too, now it's coming back, I'm all messed up and I'm only 54. I've had many hard jobs or cold apartments, I know maybe that a factor too. I asked for a neurologist doctor and now she feels it might be my sciatic nerve.
147426 tn?1317269232 The fatigue with vertigo is worse!! Two and a half years ago one morning I was putting on my shoes and socks and realized I couldn't lift my R leg onto the other to put on my socks. I could barely lift it off the ground. I saw my internist who noted pathologically hyperactive reflexes on both knees and ankles, weakness of the R hip flexors and referred me to the neurologist I had seen before for migraines.
Avatar m tn Additionally, there are a great many examples of studies involving the IV administration of alpha lipoic acid on pubmed with very positive outcomes, including Insulin Resistance, Diabetic Neuropathies, etc, etc. I am looking forward to see more of the pubmed articles that you claim validate your theories.

Avatar n tn She is a diabetic added to list. Hospice care took Mother off 10mg morphine yesterday afternoon. Mother became restless, wanted out of bed, tried to get out of bed, the thoughts of restraints crossed their minds last night. She is unable to rest comfortably, pulling at clothes, picking at body, tossing hands and arms, then breaking finally to sleep, when she can. Urine output is low, feet and legs are blue, body is swollen, but she will ralley to wake and see people as she has been able.
530191 tn?1214166411 Along with the hives I have angioedema in my face, hands and feet. Sometimes I can't find any shoes to fit except crocs or something like that. I was diagnosed with chronic autoimmune urticaria in January.
Avatar n tn As I said, I am 66 years young, and am interested if any other young seniors are in my shoes. Any comments for the older group will be greatly appreciated.
Avatar n tn If you're curious, send me a PM and I can link you to a site with samples of my work. My current avatar is one of my characters. Interestingly the one that showed up in my SP episode. I guess it shouldn't be any wonder, considering he is one of my favorite characters and I tend to think a lot about him and try to get "inside his head" in my waking hours.
