5274485 tn?1385863767 Hello, My research shows that LADA is typically not connected to insulin resistance (insulin resistance is typical to Type 2 diabetes not type 1 diabetes, of which LADA is a subtype). However, some people with Type 1 / LADA to go on to develop insulin resistance - so called Double Diabetes (where they have features of both type 1 and Type 2). Type 2 doesn't turn into type 1, but over time their pancreas burns out and then they also become insulin deficient and have to inject insulin.
Avatar n tn Hi willadd, I'm no expert, just the mom of a type 1 and the wife of a type II, but I have not heard of that. I thought Glucophage was strictly for type II diabetes. A read of the online literature says that stomach trouble is a side effect. Is there another endocrinologist in your area from whom you might seek a second opinion? Such a big increase in his A1-C needs to be dealt with, but there may well be other avenues to pursue than Glucophage.
Avatar f tn My parents are lot concerned about type 2 diabetes (cause of heredity) of my boyfriend. His Blood sugar level is completely under control for past 12 months. He developed diabetes only during 2006- Less then 14 months! Only during first two months it was high.Now its under control! My parents are worried and concerned about our marriage.

Avatar f tn Hi, I am so sorry I missed your question, it did not come up in que when you write the most recent question. Type 2 diabetes can develop into a type of Type 1 later on IF the pancreas is not able to keep producing enough insulin. This is not definite and only happens to certain individuals. Complications related to diabetes are mainly from high glucoses and not the medications taken. All medications can have side effects ofcourse, herbals, teas etc included.
Avatar n tn Could you please tell me what complications over time can occur from high blood sugar levels. Also, are there any good snack ideas for a teenager with type 1 diabetes that has a lifetime battle ahead of him and is getting bored with the same old tasteless snacks? Thank You.
Avatar n tn However, there has always been some tension concerning her being around the children. For example, she offered to be the babysitter for $100 a week (nearly half of what we were paying) to keep the kids. Their father wasn't completely against this because of the money. However, I absolutely refused! Cutting cost is not the route when it comes to the children's well-being!! (And just FYI---she's refuses to work, stating that she's disabled and can not work...yet she wants to keep kids?!?!?
Avatar f tn So, the only known way to either prevent diabetes or delay the onset of Type 2 Diabetes is to exercise and eat right just as you would if you actually have Type 2 diabetes.
Avatar n tn Being a patient and a patient only has the advantage that you can only hear what you need to hear and what is encouraging, but I'm different, I need to hear facts for the doctors as well (which are not for patients as they are too bad for that)
Avatar n tn , anti-inflammatory diet that I'm doing at home, I haven't had the weakness or fatigue anymore for about 2 weeks now. I also have been taking a epsom salt bath every day....apparently good for detoxing/relaxing/de-stressing. I think if we really really take the upmost care (baby them) our bodies that we will heal!!!
248608 tn?1189759432 We've been together for 4 years (2 of them married) and 3 children. It's so hard to walk out on that, especially since we still love each other. My trust and my respect have been gradually coming back.
220917 tn?1309788081 Is it not possible for your husband to have both lyme and MS. I was diagnosed with MS not to long ago and 3 out of 4 doctors I have seen all seem to think that I definetely have MS but there is also something else. My doctor that I am seeing right now, just my family doc., has said this all along. He's not sure what it might be but he thinks that I should still keep being tested for other things.

THE QUESTION: At 48 weeks will the SX get progressivly worse or stay as they were when I ended my 24 weeks?
Avatar f tn o Epilepsy o Type 2 diabetes o Rheumatoid arthritis o Psoriasis o Inflammatory bowel disease * You have kidney disease and are on dialysis. * You have liver disease. * You have celiac disease. * You abuse alcohol.

Avatar m tn elated mood, grandiose behaviours, decreased need for sleep, racing thoughts or hyper-sexuality. Children are developmentally incapable of many manifestations of BPD described in adults; for example, children do not "max" out credit cards or have four marriages, pre-puberal and early adolescent age equivalents of adult mania behaviours. Still, as David Healy emphasizes in his book Mania: A Short History of BPD, some doctors are now associating BPD as beginning in utero.
Avatar f tn ) We all need to be vigilant and proactive, seek the truth, convince our representatives in government to do the right thing- regarding our health and well-being. And if we don't do this for us, we MUST do it for our children! It is imperative and urgent. I guess I'm venting a bit tonight. It actually feels better now... Thank you for reading this post. And your comments are always welcome!
Avatar m tn Of course, we don't blame those who have fallen on hard times through no fault of their own; that would be unfeeling and silly. As far as my kids - my daughter does have options and chooses not to follow up on them - her choices aren't for you or I to have to support, yet we do, because the family is on unemployment, Medicaid, etc; I'm the first to admit that's not right.
174267 tn?1220408828 we will have 2 babies that way... Nicki - Good going girl. Hope thinsg go very well for you. All girls - A bit of info which you may find useful. I am an Indian by origin but I live in Singapore. Now with all this IVF stuff, I have done extensive research for myself. And what I have found (still talking to the docs) is that IVF in India is a fraction of the costs it is elsewhere.
16702 tn?1234094245 If we all have cancer cells in our body, what type are they? The cells for Ovarian Cancer are different then the cells for Lung Cancer which are different then that of Liver Cancer. Eating a healthy balanced meal helps with certain diseases such as high blood pressure, cholestrol and sometimes even some forms of diabetes that are controlled by food, but, I can honestly say that I have never met anyone that was able to control the cancer they had by the food they ate....
Avatar n tn I am 45 and thinking about TTC. I have 2 children, a bio son that I had at age 22, and a little girl with Down syndrome that we adopted. We are planning to adopt another child but an older child, and we would really love another baby. Anyone ever heard of agnus castus? Is it supposed to help you conceive better?
Avatar f tn but enough so to say, no, I don't agree with invading Iraq, etc. I am not voting this year for 2 reasons. 1.) what I have followed...no ones impressed me yet...2.) don't feel I have the 'mind' /knowledge to make a good choice! Tho if I keep reading here, I may! (new poll…should we vote on tx ? :} My 'input' was only in our need for defense, military. No we can not solve all the problems, but do need to be a part in it...not close our eyes in many things. My point was really more in the....

Higher prices and greater use of technology appear to be the main factors driving the high rates of U.S.
Avatar m tn That worked out pretty well for me for the first 2 mos or so but then my sides changed so that my worse days were more like Tuesday or Wednesday so I changed my vacation day to Wednesdays each week. Now I'm in my 17th week of TX, and I'm going to start working 5 days a week again as I think I can do that now. Since you are a lawyer, I will caution you that you probably won't be on your best game during treatment.
147426 tn?1317269232 Bit late now, seeing it was almost 2 years ago. I haven't seen a doctor for MS in the nearly 2 years that I was dxed. Other symptoms which I can deal with: are my feet and hands burn sometimes - usually late at night while in bed. By the end of the day my footdrop becomes a lot more evident and I can hardly lift my foot. Every night at 3 a.m. exactly my left hip itches and the more I scratch the more it itches. No rash, though.
Avatar f tn My daughter has been on a combination SCD and anti-candida diet for 2 years. Candida overgrowth mimics IBS and Colitis! Candida overgrowth causes Leaky Gut Syndrome and this combination may lead to the production and delivery of toxins, including neurotoxins, mycotoxins and opiate-like molecules such as gluteomorphine/gliadorphine, throughout the body!

Avatar n tn I am also another volunteer here. I've had Type I diabetes for over 10 years. Was diagnosed at 18. I don't have any children yet but I understand how you feel because having a helathy pregnancy and child in the future is always on my mind. However, interestingly enough I had never really worried too much about my child being diabetic since I don't believe that Type I diabetes in hereditary. No one in my family has it and anyone I've met with Type I diabetes is also the only one in their family.
Avatar m tn There are several of us on here who have a similar eye complaint: seeing a bright flash, like the afterimage of a flash bulb, when we blink, and sometimes, on upgaze. This is transient symptom for most of us, lasting anywhere from a few days to a few weeks. When the "spot" in our visual field passes over a dark background, the spot appears light. When the spot passes over a light background, it appears dark.
203342 tn?1328740807 Had I been in the same situation at 18, I would likely have stumbled into another relationship for support, would have worked odd jobs for decades for peanuts and possibly exposed my child to the type of people that are only lurking for damsels and children in distress. The struggles can be similar at any age but the freedom to be in control of one`s own life is easier achieved as an older mother.
