Type 2 diabetes risk cancer

Common Questions and Answers about Type 2 diabetes risk cancer


Avatar n tn In Type 1 diabetes, about 60 percent of those individuals develop kidney disease. I was just wondering - of all the Diabetics on this forum .... how many have had endocrinologists put you on medication to *prevent* kidney failure soon after your were first diagnosed? My endo is really pushing to put me on medication in case (and I stress the words "in case") I may get Kidney Disease. I have no signs of it or have it now. My Kidneys are healthy.
Avatar f tn Hi Luisa24, Looking back I did have side effects of diabetes when I had PCOS but I just thought with my weight loss my body was changing to my new size , but when I was having my blood tests done before I was due to start IVF they found out I was diabetic but only diet controlled which soon moved up to type 2 and still I have off days when am over tired or do not eat enough like today as my son kept me up all last night as he wouldn’t settle, I might not have PCOS now but am stuck with
1644823 tn?1330059575 Gastric bypass surgery is great for curing type 2 diabetes. It works for up to 80 percent of patients. Now scientists are beginning to figure out why. And weight loss may be the least of it. It turns out that bypass surgery dramatically reduces the amino acids circulating in the blood – in particular, a type called branched-chain amino acids, which make up 40 percent of these nutrients in our diet. That's from a study published today in Science Translational Medicine.
97628 tn?1204465633 My mother and two of her sisters have/had (sisters passed away one from cancer one from the diabetes complications that she was constanly hospitalized for) type 2 though none of them is/was overweight and two were not particurlarly sedentary. Is there a propensity for some people to develop type 2 even if they are otherwise fit and healthy? Does hypothyroidism ( common in the family) play a rolel of any kind in the development of type 2?
Avatar m tn The study did show an increased mortality risk for thinner, normal weight people diagnosed with type 2 diabetes as compared with their overweight counterparts. However, there were other factors that could have contributed to this finding. First, I am a nurse, not a doctor. I will try and give you some information, but I always tell patientss to discuss their concerns with their doctor- your doctor knows you personally where I can give you only some general info.
Avatar f tn Exactly like everyone else does, women that are pregnant should remember to protect their skin before investing a plentiful timeframe into the sun. A female's skin is more painful and sensitive when they're pregnant as well as can quickly be sunburned, which often, could eventually cause more severe problems like skin cancer.
Avatar n tn Would stress or diabetes type 2 or even cancer cause any of these symptoms? Some of them seem similar to early HIV symptoms but others indicate full blown AIDS. Please help. I am currently living in a small town where everyone knows everyone and I have to wait for 2 weeks before moving to another city and getting the tests done. I am going crazy in the meantime.
Avatar n tn Good sound advice from supersally down under. The A1c is called the hemoglobin A1c. It measures your average glucose for the past three months. Why is this test important? On an average red blood cells live 3 months. Excess glucose binds to "new" cells until they die off. The A1c captures this while the results are returned in % (percentage). If you get this test performed be sure to get a copy of your lab results and check the range values.
Avatar m tn According to my doctor, both, pre-diabetes and type II diabetes are reversed if you can maintain normal blood glucose levels, via diet and exercise, without medication.
Avatar m tn Anti-insulin antibodies (GAD-65) - This test may be performed if you have, or are at risk for type 1 diabetes. It also may be done if you appear to have an allergic response to insulin, or if insulin no longer seems to control your type 2 diabetes. Never heard of an ultrasound being used to test for diabetes.
2168193 tn?1337167287 I am type-2 diabetic patient. Taking pills Tribate three times a day. My brother in law is also type-2 diabetic and taking the same tablet Tribate. This medicine is containing "Pioglitazone". Recently we both had suffered with prostate-urine infection seriously and both were admitted to hospital.

1519223 tn?1500816586 Janumet Januvia and Janumet are prescription drugs that belong to a group of Type 2 diabetes drugs called incretin therapies. Studies link these drugs to an increased risk of pancreatitis and pancreatic cancer. Januvia (sitagliptin) is an oral medication manufactured by Merck & Co. The drug was approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 2006 and is one of the most popular Type 2 diabetes drugs on the market.
Avatar f tn NEW YORK (Reuters Health) – Patients with type 2 diabetes who also have liver cirrhosis associated with hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection fare significantly better when they’re treated with metformin, results of a French study indicate.
Avatar n tn And, about years ago I was diagnosed with high cholesterol and perscribed 1- 10 mg tablet a day of Lipitor for treatment. I've since been diagnosed with type 2 diabetes and prescribed 1 - 1000 mg tablet twice a day of Metformin for treatment. For the past several years, I've been focused on lossing weight with little results. The things that I'm doing routinely are: 1) reduced intake of processed carbs, 2) walk for 45 minutes 3 to 4 times a week coulped with a 15 minute exercise.
Avatar n tn I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes about 5 years ago. I was placed on avandamet, but was changed to metformin and avandia when they stopped manufacturing it. My blood sugar started flip-flopping and got so bad that it was dropping into the 20's and 30's. I got my gp to send me to an endocrinologist and he did a lot of test (including two seperate stimulation tests). He said my body was producing no growth hormone and no steroids.
1084115 tn?1385232189 _____________________________________________ Researchers Discover Hepatitis C Causes Insulin Resistance in Muscle 09 March 2010 We have known for several years that Hepatitis C, a common cause of liver cirrhosis and cancer, also makes people three to four times more likely to develop Type 2 diabetes. In studying the insulin resistance of 29 people with Hepatitis C, Australian researchers have confirmed that they have high insulin resistance, a precursor to diabetes.
Avatar m tn Definitely the smoking and alcohol put you in a higher risk category for oral cancer. In fact, if you have high alcohol consumption and smoking, it can increase your risk exponentially. I would highly advise you to go see a dentist and get a referral for a biopsy to get it checked out.
Avatar n tn I am Type 2 diabetic with hypertension. I have history of elevated liver enzymes when I was in my 20's with no alcohol use.No tests ever ran when i was younger. I am now 51. I have hypopituatarism. During routine lab work, my endo found my ALT(86) and AST (52)to be elevated. My A1C was 9.2 down from 11.5. My LBL cholesterol was 156 and HDL was 58. Triglycerides were 103 and total cholesterol 235. Normal white and red blood count. Creatinine 0.77, sodium 141, albumin 4.5, globulin 3.

558301 tn?1215734456 My mother (75yrs) goes in for a bilateral mastectomy and axillary lymph node dissection tomorrow morning (July 17th) ; it is scheduled as an outpatient procedure. She has type 2 diabetes that has been under control until just recently. Presently her blood sugar levels have been consistently elevated (fasting = 13-16). A few days ago she started taking Metformin to try to start lowering her blood sugar and there has been no change.
973741 tn?1342346373 Hi, We are talking about type 2 diabetes here. I will give a very simplified description of what happens. Obviously if you are at risk then the earlier you can adopt lifestyle measures the better your health will be. If you have a family history, even if you don't appear to have a current problem, then it is time to take action. Actually in America it is estimated that maybe 50% of the population are diabetic, prediabetic, or at risk of diabetes....
Avatar n tn type-2 diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and a history of autoimmune diseases on his father's side, which is where my daughter seems to have inherited her diabetes. We knew NONE of that when we married and had kids. It saddens me that one child has diabetes and the other has the risk of all sorts of things (MS, Crohn's and RA all appear in aunts and great-aunts). But do I wish we never had them? ABSOLUTELY NOT.
Avatar m tn She has had the treatment for the breast cancer, their might also be recommendation for some type of anti-estrogen treatment as well to further decrease her risk of recurrence as well. The use of hormone (anti-estrogen) treatment, and type of hormone treatment will be determined based on risks and benefits, as well as other factors such as her menopausal status and any other health issues. It is not clear as to why the hysterectomy is being recommended based on the above information.
15375805 tn?1441615985 type 1 and type 2. Type 2 is more prevalent globally and according to the World Health Organisation forms 90 percent of all diabetes cases. You are more likely to be diagnosed with erectile dysfunction if you have type 2 diabetes than if you have the type 1 version of the condition. Causes You may be left wondering why a condition caused by uncontrolled glucose levels can have such an impact on erection function.
Avatar n tn Many overweight folks who develop diabetes have Type 2, but you haven't mentioned whether you have Type 2 or Type 1. Do you know which type you have? Folks with Type 2 who return to a healthy weight can often stop taking meds and can control their diabetes with exercise and a sensible diet. Technically, however, I don't think they are cured because if they drop their good self-care, their symptoms (and potential risks for other nasty complications) will all return).
526227 tn?1212501950 Heavy alcohol use is another high-risk activity associated with oral cancer. Other risks include poor dental and oral hygiene and chronic irritation (such as that from rough teeth, dentures, or fillings). Some oral cancers begin as leukoplakia or mouth ulcers. When physicians detect oral tongue cancer at an early stage, they can often treat it with surgery or radiation. In later stages, the cancer may require a combination of surgery, radiation, and chemotherapy.
Avatar n tn I have recently been diagnosed with type 2 diabetes as I gained so much weight during the chemo as I was on a lot of steroid medication , I seem to spend so much time having checkups for this and that I should move in at the blood lab !! .When I had the surgery they did,nt think I had cancer it was only when they got the path lab report back that they saw clear cell cells under the microscope .
Avatar n tn Several studies found hepatitis C (HCV) increases risk of Type II diabetes mellitus (DM). However, others found no or only sub-group specific excess risk. We performed meta-analyses to examine whether HCV infection does increase DM risk in comparison to the general population and in other sub-groups with increased liver disease rates including with hepatitis B (HBV). METHODS: We followed standard guidelines for performance of meta-analyses.
