Diabetic ulcer symptoms

Common Questions and Answers about Diabetic ulcer symptoms


Avatar n tn However I get ulcers( about 3 or 4 in the past three or four years ) on my fingers , I do not know whether they are herpetic or not, as there has been only a single instance in the last two years( I am a non insulin dependent diabetic, with diabetes sometimes poorly controlled)the ulcer happened at a time when there was poor diabetic control.
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 f tn I probably need to see a gastroenterologist, but I don't have insurance so I'm trying to self-treat to avoid incurring any additional debt. Based on these symptoms, does it sound like gastritis or an ulcer, or something else? If I were to go to a gastroenterologist, what tests would s/he likely need to run in order to determine the source of the problem, and how expensive would those tests be? Thank you.
Avatar n tn she gave omepron because she also suspected ulcer because i also complained mild abdominal pain. maybe i really had an ulcer because i'm not eating much and sometimes im so afraid to eat. my doctor said my HBA1C was very normal. now i'm afraid to my regular meals. as a filipino, our meal consist of rice and now i not eating it because it is a source of great carbo/sugar. my father is not diabetic, i don't about my real mom.ants is not visiting my urine for the past 3-4 days now.
Avatar n tn I am also diabetic and heal slowly. I am hoping that is why the ulcer is taking so long to heal. I do have days that I feel absolutely wonderful. Hard to figure.
Avatar f tn Hello, my sister, age 58 suffers from diabetic ulcer wounds on both legs has found that oxygen therapy called HBOT helps in improving symptoms, if used as an adjunct to a regular treatments. Here is the source she found tody: http://www.hyperbaric-oxygen-info.com (go to the indications page). Does anybody on this forum can suggest / confirm the success of the therapy? Thanks, Alexandra.
Avatar n tn He has vascular blood disease,kidney failure [he will be starting dialysis soon],his eyesight has become very poor[he's legally blind],and he has severe neurapothy[sorry if I misspelled anything]. His symptoms have been calm for a few months and it seemed like he was getting better, but all of a sudden he found out he has an ulcer on his remaining foot.It's decently bad and is turning a dark purple color with grey skin and white skin surrounding it.
Avatar n tn I cannot give you a clinical diagnosis over the internet unfortunately so you should see your doctor about these issues also Hopefully I can give you a few pointers though First of all, the first thing to exlucde with the perineal symptoms is an STD and you should have a swab for chlamydia etc After a viral infection, there can be a triggerred immune response to the nerves and one can see muscle or nerve irritation, manifested as fasiculations.

Avatar n tn Couple of ideas. The first would be any type of gastroparesis, which can cause the symptoms. Being a diabetic would increase the risk for this. The gastric emptying scan would be the appropriate test for evaluation. Any type of dyspepsia - either caused by an ulcer, inflammation of the upper GI tract, or GERD - can lead to the symptoms. An upper endoscopy would be appropriate to evaluate this, and would be a better test than the barium tests.
542733 tn?1217719151 The third doctor told me also that the symptoms can often be associated with anxiety but for me this is hard to belive coz i feel so bad all the time with this...it is just hard to believe it is anxiety and i worry over it 24/7...He did order some blood tests which will be done sometime next week...but he did say he belives this is just anxiety and me feeling depressed at the moment...Anyone can relate to me? Please, really need some help...
Avatar n tn I can be tired after 12 hours sleep! Can I be suffering symptoms from my thallassemia. Does any one else feel the same way that I do? This is a little bit hard for me, but I don't want to complain.
Avatar n tn After that, every time she rode in a car, she got nauseous, and the symptoms would last for a day or two. Then she began having acute pain in the gall-bladder area. She had an ultrasound done, which was negative. The doctor gave her ulcer Prevacid, which did not help. She then went to a different doctor. Blood tests showed an elevation of some kind of pancreatic enzyme. A CAT scan of her abdomen was performed with negative results. Again, Prevacid was prescribed.
Avatar f tn single urethral ulcer with no discharge, no skin rashes, no other genital ulcers. Pelvic pain with radiation to medial aspect of right thigh. Right abdominal pain. Intermittent shortness of breath. Feeling dizzy after eating. Sour tastes from stomach. Tongue is white coated but no thrush. Urine is dark yellow with sediments but urine dipstick is negative for proteins, infections. I reviewed CT scan of abd/pelvis in january with radiologist - no fistula suggsted. normal CT scan.
Avatar n tn circular ulcer on the side of the tongue Day 6: first noticed white coating of tongue. Much thicker than usual, mostly painless. Then, also noticed some "whiteness", possible exudate on soft palate and a small oval-shaped ulcer there. mild swelling of the throat. I am not taking any meds, esp antibiotics, not diabetic. I am a long time mouth breather. Question: Does this time course exclude thrush along with acute HIV syndrome?
Avatar n tn I'm a 23yr.old, Type 1 diabetic female suffering from stomach problems. I have the following symptoms: bloating, burning feeling on upper stomach, nausea, urge to vomit (doesn't happen though) gas, growling stomach. My bowels are normal. I first had these symptoms 1mth after I was diagnosed with diabetes (Oct2001) and continued to have them for 6mths after until they suddenly went away for no apparent reason. I had done x-rays and bloodtests and results came back normal.
Avatar f tn dear sir, i am a severe diabetic patient for the 15 years. ai am aged 48 yrs now i am suffering with neuro problem, with both my feet. i had foot ulcer and took treatment with the podiatriatrist. i do not have now foot ulcer problem. but doctor said now my problem is because of neuro. i do not have sense, always burning sensation, pain, unable to walk. because of this i cannot get sleep in the nights.
Avatar m tn I'm having a strange burning sensation in my hands, and lags. it's more when i wake up in the morning and Recently I was diagnosed with h pylori infection and was on 2 weeks treatment on antibiotics (triple therapy) and now 2 weeks on Prilosec. I'm a 28 years healthy Asian male (Indian) , (BMI 22.3, 138 lbs weight and 5'6" height), non-smoker, non-drinker, non-diabetic, blood pressure, blood sugars and cholesterol levels are normal.
Avatar n tn I followed up with the Nurse Practitioner and she thinks the stomach pain is gastritis and gave me Nexium. I'm starting to wonder if it's an ulcer and not gastritis. Blood work has been normal. Liver functions normal except for bilirubin which is from Gilbert's Syndrome so I know that rules out anything with the liver or pancreas issues. Vitamin D was low. LDL was slightly elevated- nothing the doctor is worried about since I had a clear heart cath.
Avatar n tn I have some questions Can a Red or Purple Line under my toe where it meets my foot could be the beginings of a Diabetic Ulcer? How Long does Diabetic Foot take to devolope? Can a Person get Diabetes a Year after getting the All Clear by his Doctor? Can a Young Person like me get Diabetic Foot or does it involve older people? I am sadly overweight and dont any exercise because I am suffering Agoraphobia and Anxiety! I FEEL I AM GOING MAD SOMETIMES! Please Give me some advice?
Avatar m tn It seems like that you should consult a doctor for your blood test (especially sugar for diabetes) and neurological assessment. Diabetes in long run is associated with diabetic retinopathy (gradual loss of vision), diabetic neuropathy (numbness in extremities) and sometimes teeth loss. However, few neurological or different medical conditions may relate to few symptoms. Please consult a doctor at your earliest convenience. Hope this helps.
Avatar m tn Diabetes may be associated with increased susceptibility to infections and reduced healing power and in a few cases may be associated with neuropathy and decreased vascularity that could lead to the formation of a diabetic ulcer. Management of a diabetic ulcer would involve adequate control of blood sugar level, prevention of further trauma/ extension and appropriate antibiotics in the situation of an infection.

Avatar n tn Hello, I cannot confirm anything without examination but it can be a blood blister or a diabetic foot ulcer. It is a type of blister that forms when subdermal tissues and blood vessels are damaged without piercing the skin.Elevate the foot,give rest to the part,apply cold compresses,soak the blister in Epsom sale and keep the foot bandaged so as to avoid its rupture. If the blister breaks, quickly rinse the area and apply an antiseptic such as neosporin.
Avatar f tn Irregular Episodes - Off and on for 10 years. Episode can happen every 6 mos to a year, or more often, as in recently every 2-4 weeks. Episode tends to begin mid morning to late afternoon with Acid Indigestion Followed by Severe Bloating and Gas with stomach tenderness Then Waves of stabbing stomach pain - like contractions Eventual Nausea and vomiting Only end is with sleeping pill or Xanax to go to sleep until next day.

Avatar f tn My gynae put me on Glucophage a little bit more then a month ago, but it couldnt be that as these symptoms have only started in the past week. I am also frequently going to the loo ( for a no2 ) shortly after every meal... My GP has checked for viruses and so on through blood tests and he says everything looks good and I'm healthy. I have also done 2 pregnancy tests and they show negative. I also feel drained and absolutely fatigued, as if I can sleep for hours on end. Please help!
Avatar m tn I also think I have been having night sweats off and on. Probably 3 to 4 nights. Are these possibly symptoms of HIV infection? Please advice as I'm very afraid right now. Thanks. Plus I have lost some weight i.e. Probably about 3 kgs in the last 41 days. I forgot to mention that I had dry mouth last week and had an ulcer on my tongue. My diarrhea started again yesterday. Btw, i forgot to mention that im a diabetic. Would that make a difference?
Avatar n tn Jen, it sounds like you may have gastritis or possibly an ulcer (ulcer not likely) if those foods you mentioned are associated with your symptoms. If eating makes you feel better that's another sign it's some sort of inflammation or irritation. You might want to see a gastro doc and have a few tests to find out exactly what's going on.
