Common Questions and Answers about Type 2 diabetes prevention measurements


Avatar f tn ) In a diabetic, glucose levels rise higher than normal after drinking the glucose drink and come down to normal levels much slower (insulin is either not produced, or it is produced but the cells of the body do not respond to it) (see details on type 1 and type 2 diabetes for more information on this topic). As with fasting or random blood glucose tests, a markedly abnormal oral glucose tolerance test is diagnostic of diabetes.
1674823 tn?1307267220 Early in the develpment of diabetes type 2, fasting numbers can be normal, and only the post prandial (eating numbers) elevated. Consistently elevated post eating numbers are a concern. Do take this up with your doctor.

Avatar f tn A Mug of Hot Cocoa Can Improve Artery Health in Patients With Type 2 Diabetes Michael O'Riordan May 27, 2008 — The benefits of cocoa, known recently for its ability to reduce blood pressure and improve endothelial function, also extends to diabetic patients, a new study has shown [1].
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 n tn (same with type 2 diabetes) Same risk factors, I am comparing apples to apples. Maybe it is something in the environment... She needs to get checked for lead excess too. I have lost too many years of my life to being sick. If my doctor's and I had been more aggressive at looking for causes as quickly as possible, the last couple of years of my life and my life now would likely have been significantly better. Well at least the hypertension diagnosis did eventually get the ball rolling.
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?
233488 tn?1310696703 Assuming you have made the decision to have surgery this is a discussion of the many options and choices you have. THERE IS NO “BEST” TYPE OF PHACOEMULSIFICATION CATARACT SURGERY AND NO “BEST” INTRAOCULAR LENS. NO TARGETED POST SURGERY REFRACTIVE ERROR IS FOR EVERYONE. THESE DECISIONS WILL VARY FROM PERSON TO PERSON AND MUST BE INDIVIDUALIZED. We all have different visual needs.
419309 tn?1326506891 The difficulty is that there are 'arterially enhancing lesions' that show 'mild interval change' -- stable for the most part, but a couple of them are showing larger measurements; however, the radiologist is attributing the differences to possible variations in 'timing and contrast.' (Gee, they're done at the same place every 3 months, can't they be consistent?) They might decide to draw AFP in the next month or two, but the doc wasn't too keen on doing any other tumor markers...
Avatar m tn Fiber - almonds are a good source of dietary fiber - the part of the plant foods that is not digested in the human body. Fiber appears to play a protective role against heart disease and diabetes, an d aids in the prevention of constipation, diverticulosis, and some forms of cancer, such as colon and rectal. Iron - An ounce of almonds contains 6% of the recommended daily requirements of iron. This essential mineral helps carry oxygen to all of the body's cells and organs.
Avatar n tn I also take the medication for type 2 diabetes. I also take glyburide for my diabetes. I would say that it is a 50/50 chance whether you would lose weight in the long run as the product wasn't designed as a weight loss product. (but I'm not a doctor so your dr. might be able to tell you what to expect).
181575 tn?1250202386 I am reposting articles / summaries on the treatment management of chronic HepB. "cajim" located these articles which are quite informative. I thought about putting them on a seaprate Health Page but didn't think it was appropriate since we didn't write them. Let's make this a sort of "Unofficial Research Thread" or "URT" for this type of information. Let's keep this URT free of comments.
Avatar dr m tn Furthermore, curcumin inhibits HSC activation by elevating the level of PPARgamma and reducing the abundance of PDGF, TGF-beta, their receptors and type I collagen. This study demonstrates that curcumin protects the rat liver from CCl4-caused injury and fibrogenesis by suppressing hepatic inflammation, attenuating hepatic oxidative stress and inhibiting HSC activation.

Avatar m tn //www.salk.edu/news/pressrelease_details.php?press_id=612 2 questions: 1. This Calcipotriol type of VitD mentioned in above study available in market? 2. You have mentioned the good effects of 125VitD. Many of us have not been taking this or K2 (MK-7). I, for example have been only taking avg 4000 iu vid D3 daily for last 6-7 months. Last checked serum Ca about 2 months ago and it was mid normal range. Will check again in 3-4 days. What do I have to worry about while just taking vid d3 only?
192055 tn?1263559137 but this is indeed a problem that needs to be resolved! I don't take any medications, but probably should be as I was diagnosed w/ type 2 diabetes a few years ago.....stressed often, yes (I think MOST of us in America are today).....moody, fairly often....never had any injury to the pubic area that I can recall. One article I found by running Google search indicated this: "The muscles responsible for this retraction is the cremaster muscle.
Avatar n tn i know there is about 5% false negative for sentinel node and about 20% incidence of a postive intramammary node) 2.) what chemo regimen will they likely prescribe (length and type?) 3.) how hopeful can our family be at this point that mom will be around for the next 5, 10, 15 ,20 years to see the grandkids grow up? Sorry for all the questions, but as you can see, I have been Googling like crazy for the last 2 weeks and not sleeping much. Thanks and God Bless. This is a great website.
Avatar n tn I have seen several doctors and none of them have ever heard of this happening and 2 have suggested termination. I have an appointment with a high risk specialist on Thursday (02/27/03). Please tell me where I can find more info or who to contact. Thanks.

My doctor told me that there are chances its not a 100% on the surgery.. I have had my 2 kids and I worried. please email me at ***@**** and good luck!
Avatar n tn For the past 4 months, I've developed a terrible itch/redness in the vaginal area about 5 days prior to my period; it goes away 2 or 3 days after I 'start.' I've never had a yeast infection before, but the first month it happened I assumed that's what it was. I treated it OTC to save a trip to the doctor. Since then, I've just lived with it until it passed. I have an annual exam coming up within the next month, and this problem is top of my list for discussion.
1294995 tn?1330666336 I have endometreosis as well and I had my laparoscopy in April. After that I did 2 rounds of clomid, 2 rounds of hormone shots and this last time I did the letrozole, hormone shots and an IUI. And if I have a $1.00 for every time someone at worked asked me, "So, what are you waiting for? Why arnt you pregnant yet" I would be retired at the age of 26. lol I know it is tough- but hopefully this will be a good month for all of us.
Avatar n tn However, I have been reading alot of different discussion forums and have found a couple of people that have said this did happen to them. One of them had been pregnant 2 times already. I have only had negative urine tests so far. I go to the doctor next week - so they will probably do a blood test then. The first day of my last period was May 31st. I am 31 and never have missed a period before. I am now going on missing another period.
