Avatar n tn I live in NJ and I can't find a clinic in this state. There are a couple of questions I have. 1. On what website can I buy the hcg from? 2. Are most people following a 500 or 800 vlcd? 3. Are dieters washing their hair? Please answer "yes". 4. What are some of the menu options? I've read the Simeon's manuscript already. I feel that I keep reading the same info over and over again on several different websites without learning anything new.
Avatar n tn I was wondering how old is the oldest living person with type 1 diabetes? More important how long has this person been a type 1? I am 42 years old and was diagnosed with juvenile diabetes at age 2. I have many complications now. I'm surprised I made it this long.
Avatar n tn Hello everyone, While kebranegast is certainly entitled to his opinion, as one of the moderators in this forum with many years of experience with type 1 diabetes, I am compelled to jump in and tell anyone who may take his post to heart that type 1 diabetes can in no way be cured by marijuanna. It is a medical fact that with type 1 the beta cells are destroyed in the pancreas and require insulin to sustain your lives. Marijuanna can't cure it.
Avatar f tn As a P.S. to my posting above, yes, it interesting that we both had the exact same stroke. It only occurs in 5% of the total strokes. But we are both very fortunate because the recurrence of eschemic strokes which we had is about 25%, but with the dissection type, we only have a "1 percent risk of recurrence per year over the next 10 years.
Avatar n tn abeybaby, I'm not a physician, but I've had Type 1 diabetes for many years. Whether your tests were a "fasting glucose test" or an "oral glucose tolerance test" a person with your results should see a diabetes specialist right away. Have a look at the website of the the American Diabetes Association, particularly this page which covers "How to Tell if you have Pre-Diabetes" (http://www.diabetes.org/pre-diabetes/pre-diabetes-symptoms.
Avatar n tn The fact that you are 20 lbs underweight is one sign of type 1. But like cd, I am also wondering if you were diagnosed with type 1 or 2 diabetes. At your age it is normally type 1 and if it is I would recommend that you see an endocrinologist if you are not already. I also agree with cd that you are very possibly in a honeymoon stage and will need insulin. Please know that in any case we are here for you and will give you any support that we can. Please let us know how you are doing.
Avatar n tn I am a 49 year old woman. I was diagnosed w type 2 diabetes two years ago. Since that time I have been taking metformin 500x3per day w 'permission' to take a 4th if a social situation should require further food intake. I am VERY careful what I eat, and I exercise and get enough sleep and try to take good care of myself. I have a new doctor who ran all his own tests. I also have Hashis hypothyroid. My thyroid #s came back high so I have to lower them asap.
469720 tn?1388149949 It's like mopping up around an over flowing sink basin and forgetting to turn off the faucet Aside from uncommon genetic disorders, diet is by far the most important factor leading to the development of Diabetes, high cholesterol and hypertension. CVD is virtually unheard of in individuals with total cholesterol < 150 and strict vegetarians have 80% less chance of developing heart attack or stroke.
Avatar f tn But I also get -off and on slight tingling and weakness in my hands and tingling in one foot (I don't think this is typical of diabetes??) My diet at that time was not good. 1 meal a day and lots of junk fast foods. Thank you for telling me the type of tests that I should ask for. My family Dr. did the routine blood tests when I first went to see him and said it was not diabetes or B12. But since I don't know what is wrong with me I guess I should check it out. Thanks again.
Avatar n tn Like I said, you need to clarify if you are Type 1 or Type 2 as that will make a difference in your management. Are you overweight or not? Do you have another autoimmune disease like thyroid? Be sure the doctor does the tests. Congratulations on your marriage.
Avatar f tn I have type 1 diabetes and high blood sugar causes you not to want to eat. Low blood sugar (and resulting 'too much insulin') makes you hungry all the time. But I second CoWriter's suggestion of having your blood sugar checked. Perhaps even a 'sugar challenge'' test. They give you a drink that is loaded with sugar, make you wait, then check your blood sugar. With type 1 diabetes being an 'autoimmune disease', I have little doubt that mine was caused by hep c.
Avatar n tn hi there, Ive been type 1 for 20 years, since i was aged 7. I have had stomach problems for about 10 years, but until recently have never related then to my diabetes. in the last year i have started to try and get a hold on my blood sugars and take control, which i am doing to some degree. I think sorting this out is the next step! I have been refining my diet, and have dicovered that high fat foods and dairy dont agree with me. my doctor thought it might be i.B.
1344197 tn?1392822771 Vitamin D has been a hot topic in recent years because research has linked lower levels of the nutrient to certain cancers, diabetes, and bone and immune system problems. The panel concluded that more scientific research is needed to investigate the potential health benefits of larger amounts of vitamin D. "We looked at that evidence, and it's conflicting," Ross says. "Some studies show potential benefit, but others show no benefit, and some studies show the opposite, even harm.
Avatar n tn hi again, Tks for the rapid reply to my question about celiac disease and type 1 diabetes in a 4 1/2 yr.old. What exactly do you mean by "high" antibody levels? I live in Canada so hopefully you can put this in terms that I would understand. I realize that the measurement is listed differently in the U.S. just like you measure cholesterol in both countries. What is considered "NORMAL" for a child and what would be "unacceptable?
Avatar n tn I am not a physician, but the mom of a child with type one diabetes. I can tell you that when my daughter becomes hypoglycemic she has terrible mood swings. We have found that her having a protein such as cheese or milk, or ice cream helps keep her blood sugars level. E=being tired in school and not being able to focus could be because his blood sugar is going to low or to high. I would suggest checking his levels at that time. You might also see about getting a second opinion.

233488 tn?1310696703 O’Keefe, MD As the June7, 2014 Hospital Hill Half-Marathon “run up” commences, disturbing research is accumulating about potential cardiovascular dangers of exercising at maximal levels for durations over an hour, especially after age 40. While this type of ‘excessive endurance exercise’ can occur with cross-country skiing, long distance swimming, triathlons, and 100+ mile bike races, the prototype activity is marathon running.
Avatar m tn This appeared out of the blue in June 2012 (I say out of the blue because I don't take drugs, don't smoke, don't have diabetes, didn't have chemotherapy, and didn't take medicines for long periods of time -besides 1 week of cyprofloxacin in March 2012). I had a sexual exposure in February 2012 with bizarre symptoms exactly 2 weeks later that lead me to think on HIV (a cervical swollen lymph node, neck stiffness and then an urinary track infection), but I tested negative several times.
Avatar n tn in order to absorb vitamin D the body needs to have fat (vitamin D is fat-soluble) * Older age, as the skin converts less vitamin D from sunlight * Fat malabsorption conditions such as Cystic Fibrosis * Strict vegetarian diet - natural food sources of vitamin D are animal-based * Hereditary disorders - Renal 1 alpha-hydroxylase deficiency (also called type I hereditary vitamin D-dependent rickets) - Type II Hereditary Vitamin D-Dependent Rickets - Type III hereditary vitamin D-depende
Avatar n tn Is there an underlying condition in your case? (Diabetes is the most common, but there are others.) I have heard of a few successful cases of naturopaths working with the condition to improve it. My own condition was improved somewhat while seeing an acupuncturist, although due to my moving out of town my sessions had to stop. As far as western medicine is concerned, there's not really much that can be done. Medications like Reglan and Domperidone might be of use.
Avatar n tn My 10 year Daughter has been very recently diagnosed with type 1 diabetes. We were discharged from hospital tonight. At bed time she took her glcose and it was 25.4, I decided to redo it an hour later and the meter said it was hi over 27.8, re did it at got the same reading. I phoned the childrens ward and they were very unhelpful. Any advice.
Avatar f tn By answering simple questions about what you like, you determine what type you are. Proetin type, carbo type are the two that come to my mind. He states by eating to your body type, you can heal a lot of your body's problems, and lose and maintain weight naturally, without extreme exercising. See why I like the book?!! Exercose is not on my ajenda.I already suspected I was a protein type, and this confirmed it. By following the low carb diet, I have lost 38lbs since Spring.

Avatar n tn I don't need an answer to the next question, but if you are overweight, it can cause type 2 diabetes, some women have lost weight and they are no longer diabetic, especially true in the early stages of diabetes. The other possibility is silent acid reflux, do you get chest pain that gets worse when you're lying down? Have stomach pain after a meal? For the pain, it sounds like a pinched nerve/herniated disc or shingles without a rash. Have you had back problems before this?
Avatar m tn I am on a vegan diet with no oil it is a diet by Dr. McDougall and he says for sure you can reverse type II diabetes. It has to do with weight and with too much fat in the diet and oil. He has a good book called the Starch Solution. Let me know how things go. I hope for the best outcome for you.
335728 tn?1331418012 Then with my first pregnancy I had gestational diabetes. Then 4 years ago I was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes. For lo those 40 years, I never followed the right diet. For the past year I have followed a modified Atkins diet, have lost 40+lbs, and now do not have to take the oral diabetes medication. I'm one of those who can't add much fruit at all, without spiking my blood sugar. Oh well, good thing I love steak, lobster, pork, and nuts and cheese.
