Hypoglycemia nursing care plan

Common Questions and Answers about Hypoglycemia nursing care plan


863754 tn?1239148355 Some illnesses that affect the liver, heart, or kidneys can cause hypoglycemia. In particular, sepsis and starvation are other causes of hypoglycemia. In these cases, treating the illness or other underlying cause will correct the hypoglycemia. Other differentials that I could think of are Insulinomas, which you have mentioned, and rarely hormonal deficiencies . Insulinomas are insulin-producing tumors in the pancreas.
Avatar f tn Please discuss with your doctor. Take care! The medical advice given should not be considered a substitute for medical care provided by a doctor who can examine you. The advice may not be completely correct for you as the doctor cannot examine you and does not know your complete medical history. Hence this reply to your post should only be considered as a guiding line and you must consult your doctor at the earliest for your medical problem.
Avatar f tn Although death is rare from hypoglycemia, it does occasionally happen, and is considered a risk to young children. So I must disagree with the previous responder's comment. And many doctors tell parents of very young children to not attempt to get quite as low of glucose readings as we adults are encouraged to attain because of the risk of brain damage to developing young children. So I personally do not believe that the dangers are over-rated at all.
Avatar n tn however, I would like to also write the 504 plan at this meeting which will include a comprehensive health care plan, therefore the appropriate personnel needs to be in attendance. 3. Make sure you CC the following: US Dept of Education Office of Civil Rights Your state's Dept. of Education (Mail this letter to the depts.
Avatar n tn I am prone to profound hypoglycemia reactions, and also have hypoglycemia unawareness. I am a wondering what the experience with this drug has been? My RX plan does not cover it, and I am told it runs in excess of $97/bottle! My other issue is that it may involve shots 2-3 times a day, when I already do the pump routine for every meal. The doctor says the elevation post meal is due to glucagon. It seems to straighten out by my next meal, and I am wondering if this med is really needed.
Avatar n tn And if you had any injury lower down to your back, I believe it should be investigated. I'm hoping national health care is repealed before our health care quality diminishes to rationing, like I've heard is happening in the U.K.. I'm glad if you have the means to go private and try to really get help for yourself.
Avatar n tn I am a very active 18 year old, nursing student. For the past couple of weeks I have been extremely tired. I sleep all night, and during the day when I am not attending classes. I wake up in cold sweats, and feel faint all the time. Also a few days ago I blacked out twice. I have always been concerned about diabetes because for years I have always had to have something to drink. Where ever I go I have always kept a bottle of water or a soda with me.
Avatar m tn With the frequency of these attacks escalating exponentially over the last year, I need some kind of proactive plan. What would you recommend for a plan of action for seeing a specialist? I don't know if I should try an Allergist first, a Dermatologist, a Neurologist ? What I'm asking ,is there a protocol as to the order in which they should be seen. I'm about to take the lead on this, since my GP doesn't seem to be very motivated, and my Insurance doesn't require referrals.
Avatar n tn I would not do it if I had severe hypoglycemia - you must take care of that first. I did that through a liver/gall bladder cleanse several years ago - for 3 days, eat only fresh fruit, fresh or steamed veggies & brown rice; drink lots of apple juice, too; on the 3rd night, before going to bed, drink 3/4 cup each of freshly squeezed lemon juice and extra virgin olive oil; in the AM you may pass hundreds of gall stones and have reduced or no hypoglycemia symptoms that very day forward.
299260 tn?1304219705 dnikki- Hey just wanted to let you know that my sister had a hard time getting my nephew to latch and a nurse gave her some of those shields and she was nursing trouble free before she knew it!!! With those it was easy to get him to take to a bottle too b/c he was already use to that "plastic" (for lack of a better word). It was funny though b/c I would have to hold him really close and tip him like she did when she fed him to take a bottle from me.
15607012 tn?1442453350 I am not a doctor, but I do know a lot about medicine. I ran your symptoms through a database and I was thinking the same thing. Severe Hypothyroidism (Myxedema). You need to go to the hospital and get treatment as soon as possible. They need to start you on T3-Liothyronine IV. If I am right, you will be better in a few days. This is so serious that people go into comas from this lack of thyroid hormone.
Avatar f tn In random studies, about 3% of those who test positive have ever been diagnosed before the study). Good news is that a diet change takes care of the symptoms. For any for whom wine is the main culprit, sulfite sensitivity can be the issue.
Avatar n tn Please write back and let me know what your dr said!!
Avatar n tn im no doctor by ne means but a lot of what u guys are feeling i have experienced as well i have not been to a doctor but plan to soon to just rules some things out but i also thought that u know poor diets and abnormal blood flow can cause these things and maybe some of you are goin to the wrong kind of doctors many things like backs necks ribs can be out of place and can cause a lot of these syptoms and things like over workin yourself and not getttin the resrt u need exspecially ones with kids
Avatar n tn Until the person reaches this point there are only educated guesses This is only reliable in the face of supportive care only. In other words no heroics. And an accurate assessment of level of consciousness may be skewed in the presence of drugs used to make the person comfortable. However, there is validity to the premise that pain will actually keep you alive longer, and it's always an ongoing challenge to find the balance of pain and/or anxiety control.
Avatar n tn I get the same symptoms. It's Hypoglycemia, low blood sugar. You need to eat regularly, I eat every few hours and exercise can bring on an attack especially if you haven't eaten for a while.
Avatar n tn If you are not able to receive assistance, most health care facilities such as hospitals and urgent care centers will bill you later, instead of you fronting the bill before you leave. Take care, and good luck! I hope all goes well.
Avatar m tn It has been a long road and a heart breaking one for someone who is very very physically active/sports etc. but I have had to be an advocate for my own care, no thanks to a neck specialist/ortho doc/and a neurosurgeon who is very narrow minded. As is my father-in-law (retired gen. surgeon) who only believe in pills or surgery! UGH!!!
Avatar n tn I completed my physical today and had my blood work drawn last week. I am following the KT plan straight from his zillion dollar making website. I want to make this as scientific as possible to communicate to people with measurements, exact foods, diary, etc. I plan on following this to the exact letter...............if at all possible. I would like to have a website with all of my trials and tribulations documented. Do you know if anyone has done this?........................
Avatar n tn You really need to be under the care of an endo - a good one (and there are a lot of bad ones out there) and maybe even a neuro-endo - so go find a larger hospital or university center so that you can get a proper doctor who can manage and test you for all the hormones that may be off. Some people may only need cortef - some need florinef and some need DHEA as well. I take all that and salt too - and the thyroid etc etc etc. I have to travel to a doctor.
Avatar f tn He's a little trooper though. Last time he didn't even care that the nurse poked him with the needle, he just got upset because she put the rubber band thing on his arm. I really don't think he is going to be very tall. His brothers are all fairly tall for their age. I am 5'9" and my husband is 6'2" so they come by it honestly. Talk to you soon! Oh yeah, about people thinking your daughter was a boy...
Avatar n tn I have even taken natural water pills to see if that would help but so far no. I havent seen my doctor yet but plan on making an appt. The other symptoms I have are hot flashes, getting irritable easier and just plan mad due to my weight. I think you were right.... starvation is next! Thank y'all for sharing.
Avatar m tn There have been a few reports in Japan of a rare condition called insulin autoimmune syndrome in people using alpha lipoic acid. The condition causes hypoglycemia and antibodies directed against the body's own insulin without previous insulin therapy. The safety of alpha lipoic acid in pregnant or nursing women, children, or people with kidney or liver disease is unknown.
Avatar n tn Again on monday night and Tuesday morning she threw up again. I have been nursing my daughter every since she was born and I'm wondering if there is any way possible that somehow my milk is making her sick. She nurses a little during the day still but mostly at night because she sleeps in the same bed with me. She uses it to go back to sleep when she wakes up and to fall asleep in the first place.
Avatar n tn I am 37 years old, my youngest Child is 3 months. For 3 days now I have been getting seemingly random 'hot spots' on my legs, they start as a small heat ***** feeling and 'bloom' out into a larger area of warmth. This is not painfull and there are no visible effects on my skin. I do spend a lot of time on the floor with the children , could this be some sort of allergy to the carpet? The carpet is not new and there is no external irritation to the skin. Or should I see a doctor about it?
551343 tn?1506834118 Hello Mrs A A forum where limbolanders can meet is long overdue, well done. My MS was discovered nearly ten years ago so that is what we consider my official diagnosis date. HOWEVER, we suffered through limbo because the neurologist I was with for years, whom I trusted, subscribed to the archaic notion that patients should not be told and didn't tell us. We have since discovered that this was a common scenario decades ago but, unbelievably, is still happening today and not just to us.
503727 tn?1210442710 Hey sorry tocome in on your guys convo but I too suffer from the same thing I think something is wrong and cant take care of it. I think the worst and scared to go out. I wanted to say that xanax sucks I took it and didn't work, plus your on the smallest dosage of it so maybe you should ask you pcp to up the dosage. I am trying to find a anxiety med that works because I get no relief from the ones I have had so far. But as for you, you are not alone. Get back at me.
