Hypoglycemia without hyperinsulinemia

Common Questions and Answers about Hypoglycemia without hyperinsulinemia


Avatar n tn I have been diagnosed with hyperinsulinemia after a battery of tests on my heart because of tachycardia episodes. A glucose tolerance was done and 1 hour after a 100g glucose charge, my levels were normal. I don't know very much about this condition but I have a few questions. My brief history: 19 y/o male. Overweight. Cholesterol normal 120 LDL. No diabetes / previous medical problems. 1. I have read that this may be caused by cancer of the pancreas.
335728 tn?1331418012 of these symptoms and I am wondering if anyone here has ever had to deal with Hypoglycemia. My symptoms were again the cold sweats, light headedness, high anxiety (breathing pace increased and felt almost out of breath) and nausea. I checked my heart rate while this was going on (although it wasn't easy) and it was 84bpm which is fairly normal for me.
Avatar f tn Hypoglycemia can cause you to feel and/or be shaky, This would typically happen if you went too long without eating. There is a condition known as hyperinsulinemia that can cause hypoglycemia. Basically, you eat something containing carbs, your body overreacts with the amount of insulin it sends, and when your body finally starts using the insulin properly, you have too much of it there and you end up with low blood sugar levels. There are other conditions that can cause your symptoms.
Avatar n tn Many people are not aware that weight gain is one of the most common side effects .... and olanzapine (Zyprexa®) has the greatest associated weight gain. The reason that SSRIs contribute to weight gain is not known. Although it was a widely held belief that drugs that increase serotonin output also decrease hunger, this does not seem to be the case. Patients using SSRIs often report symptoms of hypoglycemia (weakness, dizziness, frequent hunger, and headaches) when they do not eat.
Avatar m tn [14] When cirrhosis reaches levels at which 80% of hepatocytes are dysfunctional, hypoglycemia is a frequent event due to hyperinsulinemia. However, correction of hypoglycemia with glucose administration can lead to resistant hyperglycemia.[33] Therefore, multiple meals are required in order to provide a continuous and regulated flow of nutrients. Four to six meals containing food rich in carbohydrates are recommended.
144210 tn?1273092382 · Insulin Resistance = Interferon Resistance · HyperInsulinemia = High Levels of Insulin · And High Levels of Insulin stop Interferon from working. · The two pathways are linked to each other. · You can’t be Insulin Resistant without also being HyperInsulinemic. The two go together. The graph below comes from http://www.diabeteshealth.com/read/2008/09/22/5383.html Now when I saw this it all fell into place. We ****** do it to ourselves.
Avatar n tn I am a 33-year old female, relatively healthy except for hyperinsulinemia/insulin resistance which leads to hypoglycemic episodes, and mitral valve prolapse (can't remember if there was regurg associated with this-- the echo was 10+ years ago). This last week or so I have been feeling quite lightheaded off and on.
394687 tn?1290924440 Linda - wish I could forgo the prednisone but after 14 years the adrenal glands don't know how to act without them...I would probably die if I stop them. But I have titrated down to 5 mg from 10 (body produces 4 p/d - mine use to). More pain came with the cutback. Also cut the anti-inflam in half - also more pain - ugh.
26471 tn?1211940121 There is a difference between being diagnosably diabetic, and having too much insulin in your system. In fact, hypoglycemia is undoubtedly a form of hyperinsulinemia that is at least transient. Someone also asked me about iron. While studies show that excess iron can interfere with the efficacy of IFN, other studies show that iron overload does not seem to figure into SVR - one of those odd contradictions. However, there is no doubt that iron is a killer.
427265 tn?1444080036 Too much insulin....hyperinsulinemia. Hypoglycemia is undoubtedly a form of hyperinsulinemia that is at least transient. And it may cause people to crave sweets.

Avatar m tn In a cross-sectional survey including 9841 persons, Mehta et al found that HCV-positive persons who were older than 40 years had an increased risk for type 2 diabetes mellitus higher than 3 times compared with persons without HCV-infection Insulin resistance is the main pathogenic factor in the development of steatosis in chronic hepatitis C, both viral insulin resistance and metabolic insulin resistance could be implied in the development of steatosis.
568322 tn?1370169040 2) compared to 60.5% in those without IR. In addition, IR is associated with increased liver fibrosis and is characterized by a higher viral load, two other independent risk factors for decreased response to treatment. A recent study showed 0/5 EVR in patients with IR who were given a TZD at initiation of IFN + RBV. It is unknown if therapeutic intervention to improve insulin sensitivity prior to anti-viral treatment increases response to HCV treatment.
Avatar m tn But, I am diabetic so hypoglycemia can and does rear it's head from time to time. I also wonder about reefer's affect on blood sugar - does it lower it? I tend to believe that it may. Am I getting into real trouble here Jim? I really don't care if I am. These are things that have occurred to me and there isn't a lot of information about either of these agents and their impact on blood sugar -in particular reefer and glucose. I wonder why that is.
Avatar n tn To confirm or reject the Cardio's diagnoses of Syndrome X , shouldn't my insulin levels be checked for hyperinsulinemia? I had a glucose tolerance test in April of this year and, at that time, I had elevated glucose levels (but not elevated enough to be considered diabetic).

568322 tn?1370169040 So pre-diabetics may not see a big increase in their blood sugar, but the hyperinsulinemia is getting worse. And as we know, hyperinsulinemia makes interferon ineffective. Co Caffeine worsens insulin resistance in prediabetics.
919881 tn?1243660771 5 mg per kilo my entire forty-eight weeks and my doctor prescribed it without my asking. Your nurse has a very radical approach compared to mine, who never batted an eyelash about my fluctuating numbers during 48 weeks of tx. I'm wondering if you have any other medical issues like cardiac ones that are causing her to react like this? Otherwise, I'm a little stunned that this is happening in Seattle and it would certainly make me sleepless.
Avatar n tn I think it took about 2 months before my body settled down I could lead a normal life without worrying about where the bathroom was. but then I also made some changes to what I ate which also could contribute to the weight loss. I also take the medication for type 2 diabetes. I also take glyburide for my diabetes. I would say that it is a 50/50 chance whether you would lose weight in the long run as the product wasn't designed as a weight loss product.
