Common Questions and Answers about Type 2 diabetes symptoms webmd


Avatar n tn Hi, it is normal not to want to take medicines. However your fasting level at 240 and random at 300 are very high. Normal levels for people without diabetes are < 95 fasting and < 120 2 hours after eating. Your very high levels are putting your body under a lot of stress. You are dramatically increasing your risk for vascular and heart disease. You also increase your risk of going blind and kidney failure. And these are just some of the worst symptoms.
Avatar f tn http://****.com/symptoms-of-fatty-liver-could-include-diabetes-type-2/ Symptoms of Fatty Liver Could Include Diabetes Type 2 Feb 28, 2011 by Emilia One of the consequences and symptoms of fatty liver seems to be unstable blood sugar levels such as insulin resistance, a major risk for developing diabetes type 2. If you are overweight or obese, ask your doctor to order a blood test to check your liver functions and an ultrasound to check if you have a fatty liver.
Avatar n tn Pulse pressure is the difference in blood pressure between the systolic blood pressure and the diastolic blood pressure. Pulse pressure in healthy adults in a sitting position is about 40 mmHg. Your have a wide pulse pressure of 93mmHg.
Avatar n tn It made me more conscious of other physical symptoms I had had, including an inflamed nerve in my left arm and leg from two years earlier that I believed had never gone away. I was convinced I had MS. When I finally saw the neurologist, he scheduled an MRI of the brain and that revealed nothing except sinusitis. I thought I would feel relieved when the test came back negative but I couldn't let go of my anxiety.
Avatar f tn -episode of double vision -Fatigue is also a common complaint, but not specific These symptoms typically last for 2-6 weeks and then get better, often back to baseline, or at least close. There are more rare presentations, but the testing remains the same and remains adequate.
Avatar n tn i went on the web at 8 in the evening and before i knew it, i was turning it off at 2 in the morning. all becuse i was looking up different symptoms. I hate feeling like this, and its good to know im not the only one. Anyone else suffer with the head pains blurry foggy vision and heat seges?
4705307 tn?1447973922 I did not know what that was so looked it up on WebMD and it says that Interferon and other drugs can cause this. It is a muscle disorder that is often overlooked. Have you been seen by a Rheumotologist? I am asking because I remember Pooh suggesting that others try going for testing as this type of doctor can do more testing than a GP. Not to say your GP can't do it.. I have not really looked into this much but I will, in the mean time I wanted to try to give you a place to look.
1390055 tn?1365618655 So, we go into Google or WebMD, type in a disease or symptom, and see if things match up. This is called Googlechondria or Cyberchondria. It's caused by Hypochondria, which is also known as health anxiety. We type away at the keyboard, and press enter. Swollen lymph nodes. Flu like symptoms. Someone with no past sexual history may be told that they are experincing Acute/Primary HIV Infection, also known as Acute Retroviral Symptom.
1806721 tn?1554337007 My questipn, however, is about whether statin drugs will raise blood sugar, causing pre-diabetes or diabetes? My paternal grandma has type 1 and my maternal uncle has type 2 diabetes. In the past 6 months, besides rapid weight loss, I also experienced fatigue, weakness, cold feet, dizziness, sudden drop of blood pressure, increased thirst and trips to restroom, low grade fever on and off with left side abdominal pain.
Avatar f tn A normal A1C level is below 5.7 percent. Statins list high blood glucose and type 2 diabetes as a black box warning. Diabetes is a major cause of heart disease. Vitamin B12 deficiency is a known cause of chronic cough. I'd recommend sublingual (under the tongue) vitamin B12.
Avatar m tn Dear Girlfriend of shinethedog, Re: "carries excess weight on his abdomen only, sweats easily, is hot at night, although cool to touch. These are things I have noticed." I am very similar as you describe.............and make notations of things like this for his Primary Care Physician and Cardiologist. I am 58 years of age - have had an Ejection Fraction of 10-15% since '03.
Avatar m tn 10:18 PM I have been taking Prevacid for quite some time for acid reflux. Is it normal to have vise grip like pains around the upper portion of the abdomen (just below the chest area) that goes from the front to the back? Nothing seems to alleviate the pain, not prevacid, rolaids or tums, not drinking soda quickly to help me burp. The pain continues. Stomach bloating is quite evident when this occurs. It hurts to breathe deeply. I have had this pain constantly for 5 days now.
Avatar f tn I've read autoimmune gastritis is more common with Hashimoto's thyroiditis, Addison's disease, and type 1 diabetes. Some info below on common symptoms (you don't have to have every symptom to have the disease however) and the list of lab tests to help with diagnosis. When it comes to vitamin and minerals, you want to be in the higher end for optimal health. I'm still digging away with my health issues.
Avatar f tn Wow thank you guys. I have not been diagnosed yet (except that i am Hyper) .Actually i am still waiting for an appointment with an end. My fam. doctor has been doing the test.He also has tested me on the calcium. And actually i asked him to test me for graves. He had actually not a clue.
Avatar n tn I was not told of any withdrawal syndromes or addictive potentials of this drug - I checked WebMD and of course that site says nothing because who sponsors it but the pharmecutial companies themselves. My pharmacist knew nothing of its addictive potential and had not heard of the effects of Effexor on simple things like circulation (blood pressure and 'tingling' extremeties). The fact simply remains : Effexor IS PHYSIOLOGICALLY ADDICTIVE.
Avatar f tn Research suggests that stiff person syndrome is also an autoimmune disorder, and people with the syndrome often have autoimmune disorders such as type 1 diabetes or thyroiditis. Stiff person syndrome affects both males and females and may begin at any age, although diagnosis during childhood is rare. It is not known exactly how many people suffer from it.
Avatar m tn No symptoms present before onset (or at least no awareness of symptoms). In general, very difficult to describe. Symptoms -Double Vision -Tingling in hands, feet, and thighs -deep pain that feels pseudo flu-like without the accompanying fever/congestion; essentially weakness “deep in the bones.” (particularly rib cage and back). -Stiff core/ neck -Deep pain in left shoulder-blade. -Patch of skin on lower left back that is asleep/numb periodically.
Avatar f tn This is related to insulin resistance/pre-diabetes and if left untreated can become full blown type II diabetes. Insulin resistance is also related to a condition called Metabolic Syndrome, which is a cluster of conditions, including high blood pressure, high cholesterol, high trigylcerides, high blood sugar, obesity (excess fat around the middle). The components of Metabolic Syndrome are often present with hypothyroidism.
Avatar m tn Therefore, in order to solve problems with asthma and bronchial asthma symptoms, one needs to learn how to breathe correctly. All breathing exercises must be done empty stomach preferably in morning to get best results. First thing in morning gargle with Cayenne pepper added WATER. Add 3-4 gram of cayenne pepper (Red chilies powder) to half glass of water and use this water for gargle.

Avatar m tn My mother has a numb toe too and has Hashimoto's thyroiditis (most common cause of hypothyroidism). She did try my thyroid medication for a short period of time and said she noted an improvement in her numb toe. She has normal TSH, free T3 and free T4 therefore no doctor will prescribe her thyroid medication. She has plenty of symptoms including the most obvious..a third of her eyebrows are missing.
Avatar f tn You’re overweight or obese Your body doesn’t respond to insulin as it should (called insulin resistance) You have high levels of triglycerides or “bad” (LDL) cholesterol, or low levels of “good” (HDL) cholesterol You have type 2 diabetes You have metabolic syndrome. This is a mix of conditions that make you more likely to get type 2 diabetes and heart disease. For NAFLD, weight loss is one of the best treatments. Weight loss helps reduce fat, inflammation, and scarring in your liver.
Avatar n tn We are all born with a certain body type. The important thing is that you eat healthy food. It sounds like you are getting exercise and you are strong. We are also born with the ability to know when we are full. You are lucky that you listen to your body and stop eating when you feel full. Most people don't and that's why they are overweight. There are protein shakes on the market which will give you some extra calories.
1063332 tn?1254754634 Two years later, she's not dealing with any of those extreme symptoms and her docs now take back the B-P diagnosis. In between she under went 3 1/2 months in-patient treatment for 'mental probs.' Let me just say she asked for the treatment, a willing participant anxious to discover a new way to live life and think. She came out, like I said, on the other side her old self. She was always a bit strong willed, energetic, a perfectionist, deep thinker & subject to the will of hormones.
284078 tn?1282620298 If I make a very gross estimate that there might be 2000 people in my city taking Topamax and I, personally have seen 2 attacks in one year, then that would put the risk at about 1 in 1000. Please understand that I have no scientific evidence to base this rate on and that this is purely my very rough estimate from my experience only. So take it for what's it worth.
416285 tn?1207175516 At 50 years old I started taking Pearls High Potency Probiotics and eating one container of Activia reduced calorie vanilla yogurt a day (they recommend 2 day) By the second month my symptoms, for the first time in my life, happed half as often. HALF AS OFTEN. That was huge ! By the 4th month I was symptom free. Yes, completely symptom free !!!! I have been symptom free for 2 years now.
Avatar m tn I have Type 2 Diabetes and was put on Victoza yesterday, my doctor wants me to take this for weight loss. I would just like to know if anyone has lost weight or has had any side effects while taking this medication. I was on Byetta but the nausea never stopped and I felt bad all of the time. I took my first dose this morning of Victoza and so far there has been no nausea--I just hope it lasts. Any comments on this medication would greatly be appreciated.
Avatar m tn I eat a bananas every day and drink 2 glass of milk per day to try to keep my calcium and potassium up. I have noticed if I sleep with my legs spread apart as far apart as I can get them it keeps my legs from hurting when I sleep. I recently had a physical exam my cholesterol is 131, HDL 47, LDL 73, Triglycerides 94, VLDL 19, blood pressure 69 over 120. When I was young I road my bicycle 30+ mile every day.
Avatar f tn To add to Jackies comment, I went off of all sugar and feel better than before. I had developed type 2 diabetes from the lyme along with low thyroid and other stuff. Taking sugar out of my diet worked really well and now anything sweet makes me sicker.
