diabetes

Avatar f tn Diabetes Mellitus (DM) is a chronic disease of absolute or inadequate production of the pancreas, and/ or the body’s resistance to insulin. It is a long term and a lifetime illness that is projected to be the second debilitating disease, causing most of the world’s mortality and morbidity. DM itself does not necessarily cause life threatening scenarios but its complications do.
Avatar f tn Chronic infection with HCV is associated with insulin resistance, metabolic syndrome, and type 2 diabetes [61]. The prevalence of type 2 diabetes has been reported to be 14–50% in patients with chronic HCV infection [62]. HCV-associated diabetes is characterized by insulin resistance and does not appear to be associated with antibodies directed towards the beta cells in the islets of Langerhans [63].
Avatar m tn [6–9] Some recent data suggest that patients with chronic liver disease who also have type 2 diabetes or other components of metabolic syndrome may be at risk for more advanced fibrosis. This is especially true for NAFLD[10] and possibly HCV.
Avatar n tn Insulin resistance is one of those things that a person with diabetes may or may not be. If a person with type 2 diabetes is overweight, losing weight and eating properly may be enough to control blood sugar. That person is not necessarily insulin resistant. :) But yes, having high blood sugar can cause neuropathy. It can also cause gastroparsesis, slow gastric emptying... That can result in abnormal absorption. I have type 1 diabetes and definitely am not insulin resistant.
764075 tn?1234499199 As for neuropathies, unless there is an obvious reason to suppose they result from HCV infection, doctors are likely to assume that another, more common system-disturbing disease is responsible. Diabetes mellitus may cause very similar symptoms, for instance. Medical journals have described only a few cases of the HCV-EMC-neuropathy connection. Reviews of the published literature found that 36 to 54 percent of HCV-infected subjects also had cryoglobulins.

Avatar f tn Reduction of new coronary events and new atherothrombotic brain infarction in older persons with diabetes mellitus, prior myocardial infarction, and serum low-density lipoprotein cholesterol >/=125 mg/dl treated with statins. 1 A prospective study in which 529 diabetics, mean age 79+/- 9 years with no morbidities as mentioned above were divided into 2 groups; one treated with statins and the other with no lipid lowering drug.
Avatar n tn The extrahepatic manifestations that share mild-degree certainty of association with HCV infection include B-cell non-Hodgkin lymphoma, autoimmune thrombocytopenia, pruritus, and type II diabetes mellitus.
148588 tn?1465782409 The guideline is intended for physicians and allied health professionals and provides recommendations that suggest preferred approaches to the diagnosis, therapeutic and preventive aspects of care. While obesity is a risk factor for NAFLD, there is a very high prevalence in individuals with type 2 diabetes mellitus and progression to advanced fibrosis and mortality increases in older patients. The recommendations address NAFLD in children and adults. All quotes are from this new guideline.

545538 tn?1295995617 org/personal_pages/user/568322 the bottom line is that even mild insulin resistance (type 2 diebetes), even a fasting glucose that is say 10 or 20 points above normal, can reduce the chances of a cure by 10% or more. Since many with mild IR don't treat for it, this lowers the chances of the group. This is because higher blood sugar means insulin resistance, means more insulin is produced to compensate, and insulin interferes with Interferon. The higher the untreated IR, the lower the cure rate.

Avatar f tn Armour Thyroid tablets should be used with caution in patients with cardiovascular disease and it may increase the symptoms of diabetes, mellitus, diabetes inspidus or adrenal insufficiency".
