Pancreatitis symptoms blood sugar

Common Questions and Answers about Pancreatitis symptoms blood sugar


Avatar m tn In the early stages of diabetes a cat will try and compensate for the inability to utilize blood sugar by eating more FOOD! This may be what is happening now since the pancreas has been compromised. I would check with your vet to be sure this is addressed, K? ....and if you think I just know this off the top of my head, ooh NOOOO! I have a wonderful reference guide that makes me sound brilliant, LOL! Please keep us posted if you will.
Avatar f tn 30pm). My blood work came back good he said. Oh, I also have 4 ovarian cysts that I had to go to the hospital and pay for the results, nothing has been done about those. I am at my whits end, something is wrong and not one Dr. has been willing to try to get to the bottom of this. I have gained 30+ pounds and I don't even eat, my stomach can't handle it. I get over full just drinking water.
Avatar n tn A serum creatinine and creatinine clearance test should be done to rule out kidney involvement and a blood sugar for diabetes. However it could also be recurrent pancreatitis and pain of colitis too that has become dull aching type. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
Avatar n tn But since its a GI query, thought its good if i can get some advice here. few months ago, i became very weal dizzy and ill. still am, i am, i keep getting hypoglycemia symptoms, constant brainfog, i did faint once was taken to emergency hospital.
687079 tn?1230952212 my dpctor has diagnosed me with biliary dyskinesia and i just want to be sure before i have surgery that others have experienced some of these symptoms too, or any symptoms that you may have had would be helpful too!
902019 tn?1249865014 I have no pain, and have whole body lympho nodes swelling. After taking prednisone at 60mg/day, my blood sugar reached up over 200 and had to have insolin injection 4 times per day. but, at the dose of 20mg/day, blood sugar is at normal level. Next week I will see family doctor to have blood test. I am wondering how long I can take prednisone for? Should I change prednisone to imuran? Thank you very much!
Avatar n tn My husband and I told him our concerns about the possibility of my having pancreatitis, as I had the exact same symptoms. My doctor quickly dismissed it and sent me home with phenergan saying I more than likely had a virus and it would pass. After vomiting 14 days straight, I was back at my doctor's office... again, phenergan and go home.
Avatar f tn The pancreas is an important body organ that produces vital digestive enzymes and supplies insulin to deal with sugar in the blood. Johns Hopkins Medicine in Baltimore, Maryland, reports that there are 25 digestive disorders with some having the same symtoms. Johns Hopkins White Paper on Digestive Disorders reads the the chief cause of pancreasitis is drinking.
Avatar n tn stomach problems (stomach burning), mild diarrhoea (which i've had for some years already on and off. Its specifically notable that i still have it now because I take lots of fibre on my diet). Fibre seems to be helping but stool is still 'softish' a few days per week, stool colour normal, brownish. Bowel movement once a day or once every 2 days.
Avatar n tn I just don't understand why the doctors are so reluctant to treat (suspected) pancreatitis. Nothing shows in my blood tests, so I must be fine. (Ya, right.) If the treatment is to rest the pancreas, no food, etc., then why don't they just have me do this? It would be a lot easier to deal with, than these painful flare-ups. I have actually tried to self-treat & abstain from all food,- I can't do it any longer than a day and a half.
Avatar n tn This sounds more like an acute Pancreatitis attack. Chronic Pancreatitis, to my knowledge, does not have the type symptoms you indicate. Acute pancreatitis has high levels of amalase and lipase and is sometimes very critical as this one appears to be. Do a search on the web for acute Pancreatitis for more information than you can read. Then do one on Chronic Pancreatitis and see the differences. Hope things improve.
658828 tn?1225050195 I have been reading online and think I may have Pancreatitis? Are these symptoms consistent with Pancreatitis? I also have read about Fibromyalgia as well b/c these autoimmune diseases seem to occur together, but I just cant get myself to think that this is just a muscoskeletal pain problem especially since its mainly in the area where my kidneys are located. I have an appt with a GI dr next week so I am hoping i can get some answers.
Avatar f tn who addressed diabetes, and I haven't been testing my blood-sugar levels for many months (mom died last July + Dad died this past August). My weight has risen & I'm an emotional wreck. This may exacerbate the problem, but it's been ongoing since August 2010. I've come to the conclusion that my gastroenterologist is useless. So I've been off on my own to find a "cure" for what ails me. Will post later when I have more info to share. Thanks again and happy holidays!
Avatar n tn 12th April 1999 The pancreas has two important roles - one is to produce digestive enzymes that are passed into the digestive tract through a duct, and the other is to release hormones into the blood to control sugar levels. So the pancreas is both an exocrine and an endocrine gland. The pancreatic enzymes can become a danger to the pancreas itself if they become activated within the pancreatic tissues, and this is what happens in pancreatitis.
Avatar n tn Currently I fit into none of these categories though I have been experincing what appears to be a feeling of low blood sugar lately almost 3 times a week. Do you have any symptoms with yours and have you had the biopsy..What are some of your blood levels? Have you heard any stats regarding NASH progressing to Cirrhosis in those without obesitity, Diabetes Melititus, male in younger then 40.
6246858 tn?1382272876 My beautiful Sugar and her brother Spike were Shitzu mixes. Sugar and Spike were more attached to each other then any love that I had ever witnessed! They were both just 10 years old. Spike was in the final stages of renal failure. I gave him sub Q fluids for over a year. I did everything to keep him alive. Sugar, who was healthy, was so upset over her brother's illness. She understood and never left his side. One day Sugar barked at the mailman and began to scream in terrible pain!
Avatar n tn Lactose intolerance can cause it, but it is rare for it to make teh joints swell or hurt. Not impossible, but RARE. Low blood sugar can also cause it. Have you been checked? The joints may not be connected to the problem and you may simply have restless leg syndrome which can also effect the arms.[an orthopedist would be the one to see] Also, have they checked your blood for rhematoid arthritis? It can cause these things as well. Best of luck.
Avatar n tn I was diagnosed with colitis 10+ years ago, and my 2nd flare-up started 13 months ago, but it won't end! I'm still with gas, bloating, blood & lots of mucous (sometimes nothing but mucous & blood), frequent loose stools, sometimes explosive and hard to hold, abdominal pain, fatigue and lots of joint pain.
Avatar n tn I have had 4 ultrasounds, 3 CT scans, HIDA scan, Barium enema, x-rays, endoscopy, numerous blood tests, Barium swallow, and stool analysis. All have been normal with the exception of the first ultrasound that was done in Oct 2000 - it showed "mild gallbladder wall thickening could represent mild acalculus cholecystitis - correlate with symptoms".
Avatar n tn i heard they are almost symptoms of other diseases/illnesses like muscle diseases or pancreatitis i constantly have joint pains especially my back, weakness of muscles, brainfog, dizzyness, anxiety, also have had eye inflamation ( which has been resolved after months with steroid drops).
Avatar n tn I cannot thank you enough for your previous posts to me........they have helped me get through the difficult "waiting time" of abdominal CT scan. The gastroenterologist we saw today has diagnosed chronic pancreatitis at this time. He has re-scheduled both the CA 19-9 blood test & CT scan in 3 months.
Avatar f tn I am 5 days into sobriety and I have had some major withdrawl symptoms including night sweats, vivid dreams and extreme moodiness and I swear that I have not slept for more than a couple of hours each night which has made it very difficult to work my required 10 hour days. I went to get an over the counter sleep aid, but it makes me very groggy the next there any end to this? Does anyone have any suggestions for me that will help me get through the first couple of weeks?
Avatar n tn in march 2011 i was hospitalized for a month with a paralyzed stomach they also thought i had pancreatitis after looking at my blood results. in december 2011 during a normal birthcontrol physical i had test results that caused concern for my doctor, she said i had been drinking way to much and it was starting to damage my liver, the problem is i've never drank alcohol. a more recent blood test(fasted) showed high blood sugar 110 and high calcium 10.
Avatar n tn Although many people with chronic pancreatitis have diabetes mellitus (sugar diabetes), one can have chronic pancreatitis without diabetes. The specific etiology of your friend's digestive problems can not be gleaned from the information that you provide. It is safe to conclude that the mitral valve prolapse and the fatty liver are NOT the cause of her problems. Because of the symptoms of bloating and pain (?
Avatar n tn If liver cells are damaged (in your case as a sequela of a blocked duct), then iron and iron storage protein (ferritin) are released into the blood. If a blood test showed an increased serum ferritin, then a physician might suspect hemochromatosis. To investigate the possibility of hemochromatosis, physicians order serum iron and transferrin levewls. Transferrin is the protein that binds iron in the blood.
Avatar m tn I remember waking up some day 11 years ago when I was 19 and I had all the symptoms on the Earth. dizzyiness, shortness of breath, bad vision, sweating a lot, peeing a lot drinking a lot, always hot, heartache etc.. I made tests for every knowing disease both in Ukraine and Syria and nothing..everything is alright with my lungs and heart and all other organs. Now, I am 30 and I still have these symptoms which I kinda got used to it.
Avatar f tn Three years ago I was remodeling a house(tearing down walls, mouse droppings, mold, etc) and got an infection that didn't go away. The first symptoms were general flu like with an erratic pulse that would wake me at night and continued throughout the day. Since then I've not been able to breathe the same but recently it's become much worse.
