Avatar n tn Is there an alternative treatment to omeprazole for gastric ulcer? I have adverse reaction to PPI's but need to heal my ulcer. My biopsy was Hpylori negative but have been on aspirin therapy for several years.
Avatar f tn Hello, In my earlier post,I have mentioned some of the common causes of vomitings and nausea.As you have mentioned that your husband is a type-I diabetic,so possibility of diabetic ketoacidosis may be there.It is a state of absolute or relative insulin deficiency aggravated by ensuing hyperglycemia, dehydration, and acidosis-producing derangements in intermediary metabolism. http://www.emedicine.com/emerg/topic135.htm Did your husband get evaluated for his blood sugar levels in the ER.
Avatar n tn Hi Firenfire! I am not a medical professional, just the mom of a type 1 diabetic, so any information you receive here should be verified with your healthcare team. I have not had any experiences with a high bg being the result of too much caffeine, but perhaps others will share their experience with you. Sounds like you should head to your doctor's for some blood work based on the bg's that you've been having.
Avatar n tn After doing the last operation (last July), the doctor had asked me to walk on my heel to prevent any pressure on the ulcer. The ulcer had fortunately healed, but another ulcer has developed in my heel. This ulcer is still unhealed, I saw a neurology doctor, who examined my feet and found that I have already lost my sensation in my left foot (neuropathy).
Avatar m tn Hi, this may or may not be true w/ your cat, but we had a cat that became a diabetic because of the steroid drug she was put on for some colon issues. I know that sometimes vets will use this drug to treat cancer in our cats, too. So, if your cat has been given a steroid drug, either by injection or pill, then this could very well be the cause of her diabetes. And, as soon as this drug is stopped, so will the diabetes. Best wishes to you. I know first hand how tough your situation is.

I don't think MS is likely in your case in light of normal brain MRI and borderline findings on your evoked potential.
Avatar n tn But this can be confirmed only with an endoscopy. Both gastritis and peptic ulcer disease may cause pain in the upper abdomen. Peptic ulcer pain is usually a burning pain. They commonly occur in the stomach and duodenum. Stomach ulcers cause pain on eating and duodenal ulcers cause pain on fasting (2-3 hrs after eating). Peptic ulcers are eroded areas in the lining of the digestive tract usually in the stomach and duodenum.

Avatar n tn Can a steel toe show cause a blister or ulcer to a diabetic person? what can cause a blister to a diabetics feet. Can a diabetic person performing repetetive squating and using a standng forklift for long periods of time cause the foot to blister?
Avatar m tn If there is any ulceration or pain associated with this rash, then please consult your doctor as it may be start of a diabetic foot ulcer. Also get your blood sugar levels checked. Till then, you should keep the area clean, wear lose comfortable clothes to avoid sweating, use a powder to keep the area dry and use calamine lotion at the site. Oral antihistamine medications would help if the lesions are itchy.

Avatar f tn I also take an 81 aspirin. I have had a stomach ulcer since 1970 and the reason I could not take aspirin as a preventive measure was that it caused my ulcer to hurt and bleed. My mother had a massive stroke at 63 and her dad had several strokes at 65 so I know there is a genetic connection. I am afraid to come off the Plavix. My doctor said I needed to take it for at least the first year. What's the latest news on this please? I am very confused.
Avatar n tn If you are suffering from any of these you will have constant anemia, digestive problems, a duodenal ulcer can cause pain under your right rib, and the anemia will cause generalized aches and pains. A GI doctor or gastroenterologist or the doctor who looks after our gut is the best person who can help you with this. It is difficult to comment beyond this at this stage. Maybe you can seek another opinion from another doctor than the one you are currently seeing.

661621 tn?1224901632 I am not diabetic and have had a doppler on thigh done the rule out venous ulcer. (I think there are more test to be done to actually rule that out though).
Avatar n tn Hello Cheri, I will attemp to help but I am a nurse and not a doctor. Carafate is a medicine used to treat a duodenal ulcer (short term 8 wk treatment, long term about 6 months). This medicine can help decrease irritation of the stomach, lower digestive tract, esophagus or mouth. Are you on other medications that might cause the pain? Either prescribed, over the counter, herbs, vitamins....any? Sometimes scar tissue can cause epigastric pain. How severe is the pain?
Avatar n tn I'm Type 1 diabetic who is having some stomach problems. I was diagnosed with diabetes 6 years ago (when i was 17) and after a month of being diagnosed I started to have these stomach problems. My symptoms were: nausea (this is a big one), burning sensation, always feeling hungry, gas and bloating. I was put on nexium, prevacid and got blood tests and an x-ray done but the meds didnt work and the results for the tests came back normal.

372726 tn?1236111994 His kidneys are stage 4 renal failure working at 19%, he is diabetic and getting ready to have a fistula placed for dialysis. We moved from California and now live in a small growing city in Utah. His electrophysiologist (only one in town) suggest for my husband to have an "Ablation" to help correct the Atrial Fibrillation" however, it may possibly not work.
Avatar f tn sulfa drugs, steroids, NSAID use, diuretics, duodenal ulcer, diabetic drugs especially Byetta. The drugs could be a problem for both the pancrease and liver too. If you have been taking Byetta for diabetis it is very important to get treatment for that right away. I would say there is cause for concern but you are getting it checked out. I hope this helps.
Avatar m tn I have been doing alot of research regarding gastroparesis which led me to research autonomic neuropathy and am wondering if the Nortriptyline has caused damage to my vagus nerve and possibly other nerves which control autonomic function. I am NOT diabetic. My other maladies, i.e. asthma and osteoarthritis do not appear to be related.
Avatar m tn Btw, now my arm hurts and im unsure what the cause is. Also i feel like im coming down with a cold. Could these be symptoms?
Avatar m tn Urine and blood amylase levels may be moderately elevated with a variety of other conditions, such as ovarian cancer, lung cancer, tubal pregnancy, acute appendicitis, diabetic ketoacidosis, mumps, intestinal obstruction, or perforated ulcer, but amylase tests are not generally used to diagnose or monitor these disorders. 2. Can medications that I am taking affect the amylase level? Yes.

Avatar n tn I went to the DR and he put me in the hospital ( I am also a type 1 diabetic) they did an endoscopy and found I had ulcers no stomach lining. My liver produces to much bile and diabetic parisis( I do not know if spelled that correctly). These are the treatments I am currently on I take Carafate 4 times per day, Protonix 1 time per day, Reglan 4 times per day and a cocktail of Donnatal and maalox 4 times per day.
Avatar n tn what else could cause nausea and bad aches in stomach that feel like they go to my back?im really worried please help!
Avatar n tn Share how long it has taken you to heal or learn cause and effect with your Gastritis, Gerd ? Have you found comfort or relief ? So many factors contrbute to the stomach and heart and how they function But if you are told that yours is sensitive and doing all you can, Now what ?
Avatar f tn Going for testing is great, but keeping track yourself of what is occurring at the time of flare ups helps with the diagnosis. Nausea after eating can be from acid reflux, gallbladder, peptic ulcer, all of which are treatable. Good luck. Keep us posted.
