Avatar n tn If your fasting glucose level is 100 to 125 mg/dL, you have a form of pre-diabetes called impaired fasting glucose (IFG), meaning that you are more likely to develop type 2 diabetes but do not have it yet. A level of 126 mg/dL or above means that you have diabetes. You can get this under control by carefully monitoring your nutrition along with doing moderate exercise. There is no cure for diabetes. Once you're a full blown diabetic you're one for life.

1806721 tn?1554337007 My questipn, however, is about whether statin drugs will raise blood sugar, causing pre-diabetes or diabetes?

469720 tn?1388149949 As you may have noticed by now, the focus of this forum is cardiovascular disease(CVD) prevention. The statistics speak for themselves. CVD is the leading cause of death in the US and worldwide. Although we have made substantial progress in the development of medications to combat the causes of CVD like high cholesterol, hypertension and diabetes; the rapid proliferation of these diseases virtually negates and medical benefit. In other words, we are treating the consequences, not the cause.

921323 tn?1268679412 Put the money towards the health costs of the uninsured. Or, use it to fund research in diabetes, heart disease, or any of the other countless complications of obesity. But is it too early to admit defeat? If we had done the same for cholesterol medications or diabetes medications, or even smoking patches and pills, we’d be paying for it in countless ways. So is there something unique about developing medications for obesity?
Avatar n tn darlin' you were wrong again. It also isn't caused by eating too many sweets or being fat...yes Type 2 diabetes can be brought on by being overweight...but that isn't the sole cause, and with Type 1...weight has no baring either way. You are one of those people that think if you just don't give your kids candy and pop they will be healthy forever....I pray to whatever god is listening that you either do not have kids and never have kids...or if you do...
Avatar f tn Greetings doctor I am actually doing a research paper on HIV for school and with so much info online from one end of the spectrum to the other I figure I would ask a specialist directly a few questions so here it goes... 1-with testing now a days would you consider 6-8 weeks conclusive? 2-do you believe rapid tests are just as reliable as lab based? 3-do you feel oral rapid tests are just as good as blood? 4-what are the most common symptoms you see with onset of HIV?

282804 tn?1236837191 Incidences of most medical conditions is lower in those other countries, because prevention is really encouraged. Also, in France, Drs get paid by how WELL their patients are. If they can get most of their patients to control diabetes, lower cholesterol, quit smoking, lose weight, etc., they get bonuses. The argument from the doctors standpoint is they won't get paid anything. However one Dr they interviewed lived in a million dollar home, drove a luxury car and had no debt.
Avatar n tn My son is 20 years old, and has type 1 diabetes since he was 3 years old. The dr. ordered a 24 hour urine test this time since it has been over 15 years since he was diagnosed. The test came back at the high end of normal, being 144 mg protein for his height and weight vs 24 hour period. The dr. already had him on Alstace caps of 2.5 mg each. Danny should have been taking them all last year, but he couldn't remember to take them when he was at college.

Avatar f tn Take an antiviral for the rest of my life or I can give Pegasys a try. 8% success rate for eAg-neg. He said for an otherwise healthy young patient like me, the side effects might not be bad. I can stop anytime I want without consequences. It will likely fail. At that time, we can take up on antivirals. I don't know if 8% is worth a year of trouble. My main concern is the CNS effects of interferon. I have 2 very young children (a kindergartener and a 10-month-old) to take care of.

Avatar n tn I got really sick with the flu in January, and went several weeks with only 2 or 3 hours of sleep each night. Then one day at work I had a terrible panic attack, but I still thought it was related to my flu. I have had several since, and have been to the emergency room twice.

Avatar m tn I pretty much expect to eventually develop some type of insulin insensitivity, or outright type II diantes later in life due to my infection with HCV (even if I SVR soon). My dad developed type II diabetes in his mid-50's (he completely manages it with diet and exercise today though), so there is a genetic component too. Anyone in your direct family have any form of blood sugar problems or diabetes?

Avatar n tn Anyway, the endo said 3 things to me on my first visit. 1. I may actually be a type 2 because I was so 'big' (result? C-peptide came back ZERO). 2. He wrote a list of things I could never eat and included peanut butter on it as well as popcorn, red meat, juice, cake, bread. Peanut butter has been a staple for me since I was little to prevent reactions! 3. He had NO idea what carb counting was, and he was not willing to talk about it.
Avatar n tn 1) Is this perscription necessary before she is seen by a cardioloigist (I understand it is used to decrease the number of pvc's) 2). What would be considered a dangerouse number of pvc's over a 24 hour period? 3). What are the side effections of this medication and/or going off this medication?

690241 tn?1227390813 the only complications I had were Uti's with all 3, Gall stones with #2 and Gestational Diabetes with #3. They are all healthy. I ended up getting IV pain meds every few days for the last two months of #2 due to gall stone attacks. I was diagnosed with MSK when she was 6 weeks old, although I passed my first stone when #1 was a few weeks old, and was hospitalized and told I was full of stones to the point of them looking like bone on X-ray. No-one mentioned MSK until after my second baby.

Avatar f tn Although this shouldn't become a habit, fruit and vegetable drink mixes can be an excellent substitute when you're rushed or traveling. The need for fruits and vegetables in our diet is growing rapidly with the type 2 diabetes, heart disease, and high cholesterol, hypertension that result from the "Typical American Diet" of fatty meats, processed sugars, and refined grains.
Avatar f tn There is a long list of potential causes, and because of your age, gender, brain MRI and sx's that does put MS on that list, but it's one of many that needs to be ruled out or to be moved higher on your potential list. Just like all those viles of blood they took to investigate different but specific abnormalities, to investigate MS there are different but specific tests and your combined test results help to create a clearer picture of what's going on.
