Avatar n tn They could be suffering from DKA which is a medical emergency and needs a trip to the ER. DKA is usually suffered by Type 1's only, but occasionally a type 2 can have it. More dangerous in the short terms are lows. Anything under 60 should be treated. Some people say 70. I would err on the conservative side if the jobs entail anything dangerous like machinery or driving in which case the person should stay over 80.

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.
Avatar f tn There are no high quality data on the efficacy of the dietary treatment of type 2 diabetes, however the data available indicate that the adoption of exercise appears to improve glycated haemoglobin at six and twelve months in people with type 2 diabetes. There is an urgent need for well-designed studies which examine a range of interventions, at various points during follow-up, although there is a promising study currently underway.
Avatar f tn Focus now on having excellent control of your diabetes. If you have good - excellent control you are not at risk of having stroke or heart attack.

People with Latent Autoimmune carry the exact same complication risk as those with Type 2-stroke, heart attacks and heart disease. Contrary to popular beliefs, some people who have LADA ARE overweight or obese. Furthermore, some people do carry family history of diabetes, regardless of the actual type. Latent Autoimmune usually begins between age 21 to 65, and carries serious issues like any other Diabetes.

Avatar f tn in young people with stroke, even if they have other risk factors for stroke (such as diabetes). This is important because the treatment to prevent further stroke may differ. This can be tested mainly with blood tests. If an inlammatory cause (what is termed a vasculitis) is suspected, then a spinal tap would be needed, but if your blood tests and CTA do not suggest a vasculitis, this would be less likely.

Avatar n tn Hello, I am new to this type of thing but, I really need some type of input from other people who have suffered the same thing. My story I will try to keep it brief. I was 24 years old when I went into labor to early. My son did not make it. At that time I was told it was one of those things and it probally would not happen again.

Avatar m tn I am sorry to hear about your stroke and am glad you are recovering well. The risk of stroke with paroxysmal atrial fibrillation and persistent atrial fibrillation is equal. The CHADS2 risk score is used to determine appropriateness of coumadin for atrial fibrillation patients for stroke risk reduction. it stands for: Congestive heart failure Hypertension Age greater than 75 Diabetes Stroke. If you have stroke, it is worth 2 points, the other risk factors are worth one.
Avatar n tn My dad had a hemorrhagic stroke on Jan. 2. 2007 I know I have reached this site two years late, but I wonder if anyone can tell me if they had a similar stroke. his was on the right side of his brain and effected his left arm and left leg. he was in the hospital from Jan to the end of march. from hospitals to rehabs. he had a feeding tube the whole time and was finally able to drink water and eat food after 2 months.
Avatar f tn Trans fat is a man-made fat that food companies add to certain foods. This type of fat keeps foods fresher for a longer amount of time and helps make the food feel better in your mouth. Trans fat can raise bad LDL cholesterol and lower good HDL cholesterol. Food companies must list trans fat on their food labels. Many companies have stopped using trans fat in their products. A food with 0.5 grams or less of trans fat is listed as “0 grams” of trans fat on the label.
Avatar n tn Maybe one that pays strict attention to the hypoglycemic index of foods. My brother who I said in an earlier thread is a type 2 Diabetic follows a strict regimen. He takes lots of meds and checks his blood sugar about 6 times a day. He keeps a notepad with him at all times and records everything. Hopefully after his weight gets back into a "normal range" (his about 75-100 lbs. overweight) he hopes to be eventually be med free and just control it with his diet.
469720 tn?1388149949 Abdominal fat is also a risk factor for diabetes because it leads to a reduction in the body’s response to insulin which results in larger amounts of insulin needing to be secreted by the pancreas to control blood sugar levels. This eventually leads to insulin resistance and the onset of type-2 diabetes. Most doctors recommend a waist size of under 37 inches (84 cm) for men and 32 inches (81 cm) for women.

Avatar m tn This is done by testing for antibodies, testing insulin levels, and testing a substance called c-peptide. If you have type 1 instead of type 2, then you need to be on insulin. If you are feeling bad (vomiting, nausea, headache, chills) then you also need to go the nearest emergency room as soon as possible. This is something called diabetic ketoacidosis. It can be fatal if not caught and treated early. Please immediately adopt low carb eating.
146021 tn?1237208487 Types of Diabetes The three main types of diabetes are type 1, type 2, and gestational diabetes. Type 1 diabetes, formerly called juvenile diabetes, is usually first diagnosed in children, teenagers, or young adults.

Avatar n tn (1) I understand that Stress is listed as a risk factor for potential heart trouble, however the term "Stress" has a broad meaning. When this is referred to as a risk factor, does that pertain to the Type A personality, always uptight individual, as opposed to someone like me that is treating for anxiety/panic disorder? I'm normally laid back, not Type A at all, but I have this demon called panic disorder that I tame with meds and therapy.

Avatar n tn The second they think was caused when they lowered his blood pressure it was a Ischemic stroke. The first stroke is the most severe and originated in the Putamen ( a part of the basal ganglia). The second is on the right side and I've been told it controls spatial concepts. He has started to move more today and instead of only having posturing movements he has started to bring his arms up in a more normal response.

568322 tn?1370169040 NS3/4A disrupts TLR3 and RIG-1 signaling pathways by blocking TRIF and CARDIF and NS5A interacts with TLR4 and impairs NK cell function. Levels of TLRs 2, 6, 7, 8, 9 and 10 are upregulated in both monocytes and T cells in HCV patients. TLR4 is upregulated in T lymphocytes, and TLR5 is increased in monocytes. MD-2, a TLR4 co-receptor, is increased in monocytes and T cells.
Avatar m tn High untreated blood glucose [sugar] levels is related to many long term health problems which include the kidneys, eyes and vision [retinopathy], risk of heart disease and stroke in men. Another dangerous side effect is diabetic neurothapy. Left untreated it can lead to amputation. Diabetes also increases the risk of having a heart attack as much as smoking does.
Avatar f tn And I got kidney failure from the CT scans taken at the time of the stroke. If it's difficult for you to type, don't worry about answering this, but I wondered what the nurse was supposed to be checking to watch for your brain pressure.
