Avatar n tn Last summer I was told I had reactive hypoglycemia after extensive testing for diabetes. I was told I don't have diabetes though. Over the last few weeks, there is a sore pain in my left side, generally the middle of the side, but does not go away easily. Sometimes it leaves, then it returns. The pain HAs on occasion, felt as if it were getting under my ribs, and yes once, it did seem to radiate around to the back.
Avatar n tn my blood sugar did drop a few times, but after many days of monitoring my sugars, no hypoglycemia. I ruled out hypoglycemia because I usually felt fine if I didn't eat. Decided to change doctors (went to internist) and he did CBC and some other blood tests (normal). Told me to come back in 3 weeks after monitoring heart rate and blood pressure when symptomatic. A week later, my right arm, leg below the knee including my foot would go numb for no reason.
Avatar n tn After all the usual testsing for diabetes, it was concluded that i did NOT have diabetes, but rather, reactive hypoglycemia.

2137655 tn?1336009525 Hi, your persisting symptoms of bloating, nausea and dizziness could indicate a viral gastroenteritis. Lack of proper nutrition can cause dizziness due to hypoglycemia. The other causes could be jaundice if there is yellowish discoloration of skin, food poisoning if the symptoms occurred shortly after taking food, peptic ulcer disease and sometimes cholecystitis and pancreatitis. Please consult your primary care physician at the earliest for evaluation. Regards.
1519223 tn?1500816586 In 2011, the FDA received almost 200 reports of acute and chronic pancreatitis linked to Januvia and Janumet – some of which were fatal.

Avatar m tn To me it sounded like hypoglycemia (low blood sugar). I would follow through with the doctors suggestion though. Are you seeing a psychiatrist or psychotherapist? Talking through your issues (and perhaps medication if necessary) could be helpful. Just as an aside, I found the doctor's book "Shrink Yourself: Free yourself from emotional eating forever," (I'm sure he'll correct me if I got the title wrong) helpful in reducing obsessive compulsive behaviors.
Avatar n tn Alcohol consumption in patients with diabetes poses them at a risk for both hyperglycemia and hypoglycemia. While the former is associated with worsening of diabetes the latter can be acutely dangerous. It can also increase the effect of hypoglycemic medication and pose a risk for pancreatitis associated with worsening diabetes and hence is best avoided in patients with diabetes. Hope this is helpful. Take care!

It might not amount to you having to give him an anti-seizure drug every day, if it's caused by hypoglycemia you can combat the seizures by giving her several small meals a day instead of feeding her once a day as you would an adult dog.
Avatar n tn Yes, one can have acute pancreatitis or chronic pancreatitis. The reason why I think it is your liver and/or pancreas is that you mentioned the hypoglycemia symptom.
