Type 2 diabetes treatment flow chart

Common Questions and Answers about Type 2 diabetes treatment flow chart


Avatar m tn I think most doctors recommend antivirals because it has minimal side effects and easier to tolerate long term as opposed to Peg Interferon (some on the HepC forum referred to Interferon as doing hard time). Combo treatment is taking 2 antivirals to cross protect against resistance. It attacks the virus on 2 fronts to reduce it adaptive abilities. Important because you may may to take antivirals for the rest of your life. Always think of the long term.
Avatar n tn Are we gonna make it like Rocky? Tingling 2 the Revenge? My suggestion on how to sleep....is already known! Ok, I don't want to transform all of you in a bunch of drug addicted, but have you tried a tranquillizer just once? Just to see whether your tingling diminishes the moment you calm down? @rnneeedshelp: as my "colleague" has written, you are anxious over the symptoms, not the opposite, and the same is for all of us.
Avatar f tn Hi, Recently we found out my husband has Diabetes type 2..so, dr. has given Metformin tab. twice a day..and, he is taking healthy diet like salad,fruits, wheat bread and green vegetables..going for a walk around 1-2 miles everyday... but he is feeling tingling and numbness in right leg and arm since few days and it is constant...dr. told it's common in diabetes but we are very worried.. so, is it normal or we should consult the dr. again?
710547 tn?1295449630 just didn't fit with type II and did fit with LADA - Latent Autoimmune Diabetes in Adults. It means I may need insulin asap to keep from destroying all my B cells. Of course that means another uphill fight. As far as the neurologist - he said he'd never seen RE in anyone - much less an adult - so in his gut he didn't think I had it. It was too rare! I wondered if he'd looked at my chart - I'm the essence of RARE cases.
Avatar f tn I am a 54 yr old woman who has been spotting/bleeding for the past 3 1/2 years. EVERY DAY! Only went away for 5 months 2 1/2 yrs ago, then on again. Just had an endometrial biopsy at the "clinic" (charity care), and they say I have this complex atypical endometrial hyperplasia. They are telling me I need a hysterectomy, but before I can get it I need a hysteroscopy first. Telling me it is pre-cancerous, but that 40-55% is usually cancerous.
Avatar m tn To understand and referring to the model (segment 'a' to point 'b', and occlusion1 and occlusion2), if occlusion 2 (downstream lesion) is stented, that will increase collateral flow from occlusion1, and if occlusion1 is stented, that will regress collateral flow!! If that is true, my father's collaterals will be sufficient if there is no blockage down stream. Would that be correct? .
2121656 tn?1395678349 Also, I didn't go to him because of symptoms of a thyroid problem. I have type 2 diabetes, high cholesterol and take lipitor, therefore I have to have lab test every 3 mnths. and he runs everything. So, when I go Friday if he wants to start me on something (medicine) should I take it? or see a Endocrinologist first? or have him run the TSH, FT3 and FT4 again? as I mentioned above he didn't and hasn't ran at FT3 test.
469720 tn?1388149949 Some specific tips, based on the latest scientific evidence about what works best, follow. Medicines 2. Make sure that all of your doctors know about everything you are taking. This includes prescription and over-the-counter medicines, and dietary supplements such as vitamins and herbs. At least once a year, bring all of your medicines and supplements with you to your doctor.

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.
694885 tn?1232653548 I decide to go back to my Endo Doctor to find out , 1- the cost of surgery to cut it out , 2- If he can give medication to control some of my symptoms while I figure this out. My symptoms are many but these were my main concerns; Nodules growing fast, Facial swelling, toe nails dyeing and falling off and just plain tired all the time. The response I got from my doctor was that the facial swelling and toe nail issue were not related to my condition in the thyroid.
Avatar n tn com/ (takes 30-60 minutes to listen to) ------------------------------------------- Regarding some concerns and points made, but please double-check with Vertex release and webcast above -- 1)Initial trials for treatment naive. 2)Trials for non-responders projected for second half of 2007. (Phase IIb study) 3) No one will receive just a placebo. However, intially, one arm will substitute a placebo for Vertex, meaning treatment would be peg and ribavirin.
Avatar n tn This has been happening for about 2 weeks now. I have type 1 diabetes (insulin) and my blood sugar levels have been high at times since I am burnt-out on giving myself 4 injections per day, plus I like to eat. Also, I have noticed white foamy-bubbles in my urine (possibly from increased calcium intake). My last doc visit on Sept.1, 2011 (before this started since today is 10/15/11) lab tests showed that I have a kidney infection, plus my blood pressure was high at about 147/80-something.
Avatar f tn I have been have chest pain with left arm and jaw discomfort on and off for 1 1/2 weeks. I am a non smoker, no high blood pressures, no diabetes, and good cholesterol. I am a 43 year old female. My father had his first heart attack at 50 and died at 60 so I have a family history. I am still having chest pain and wondered if I should suggest further testing. I see my cardiologist for a follow up on Monday.
Avatar n tn diabetes, B12 deficiency, thyroid disease, and auto-immune/inflammatory disorders to name a few. The normal range for B12 varies from institution to institution, but certainly some of your B12 levels are low and others are borderline. When patients have low normal or borderline B12 levels it becomes important to check other markers of B12 function such as methymalonic acid, and homocysteine. Folate levels should also be checked.
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 f tn To explain very simply: Insulin resistance is caused by spikes in blood sugar, which in turn spike insulin levels. After this happens time and again, the cells become resistant to insulin, so instead of sugar going to cells, insulin shuttles it into fat cells... Eventually, the pancreas can no longer produce enough insulin, so blood sugars climb higher and higher, thus Type II Diabetes is born. I have insulin resistance (pre-diabetes), as well.

Avatar n tn I've read a lot of stories of chronic Lyme patients developing autoimmune disorders, some of which resolve after Lyme treatment. Treatment will not restore permanent damage, though, so you might still have thyroid isses after treating Lyme. Some long term patients are helped exclusively by oral medications. From what I understand, my doctor tends to treat long term infections with IV meds because they bugs are so entrenched. IVs are just more effective.
Avatar m tn TSH is a useful tool, but it is the least important in long term and symptomatic thyroid patients. I think there can be testing / symptom algorithims / flow charts to guide treatment. This flow chart would rely both on blood levels and symptoms. It would also consider some alternatives for checking if thyroid levels were apparently ok, but the patient still had symptoms in the face of apparently ok blood work.
Avatar m tn 1- Do I have a hyperprolactinemia? If so, is a microadenoma of the pituitary possible? (remember it's been 5 years now) 2- Are such levels of prolactin and testosterone in a 21 year old man responsible for all these symptoms?
Avatar m tn -When I am soft it is 3 inches generally or can be 2.75 inches now and then. It can even be 2 inches. But due to me never getting an actual erection, my size is unclear on its normal flaccid state and I do not know my full size. I hear from what stage I reach, I think it is semi erect (but it still flops and sometimes can be a bit hard, but commonly floppy), the penis size extends by an inch or so?
6698028 tn?1383866244 Alcohol abuse isn't even a thought, I have maybe 1 glass of wine every night, maybe 2. I had my last drink Sept. 17th, well over a month before the blood tests. No symptoms of anything wrong, I feel fine, my liver is not enlarged or tender. I am only proceeding because of those liver enzyme counts and am at a loss as to what is wrong. No one has mentioned cirrhosis but the Dr. now wants to schedule a biopsy. Can anyone give me some help with this? Please.
Avatar f tn There's a lot of things that are unknown/ignored by a lot of doctors, including of course RT3, FT3, cortisol, Vitamin D, B12 and ferritin. If they could see and absorb the process flow chart in Fig. 1 on page 7 of the link I gave you at the beginning of the thread, they could readily see that there is a lot more than just TSH and FT4 involved. The desired end result is to have adequate tissue thyroid effects, which is affected by numerous processes and a large number of confounding variables.
Avatar m tn The only difference is that a better blood flow has been supplied to the deficit area. Aspirin will be required for life to lower the risk of clotting. If your blood pressure has not improved post cabg, then this medication will also continue. A bypass operation will not lower cholesterol, so if your cholesterol is high, statins will always be a requirement. Beta blockers will also be required for a while until the heart has fully recovered from the trauma of surgery.
476246 tn?1418874514 , a magazine for further education of hepatologists. The chart at the bottom of the last page suggests a new consensus for treatment regime for genotype 2 and 3. You should be able to understand this even if you don't know German. Note "Peg-IFNa + > or = 12 mg/kg Ribavirin". Figure 10 and 11 on the second to last page will also be of interest to you. My ex is now scheduled to participate in a study for relapsers of genotype 3. He will do 48 weeks with weight based dosing.
Avatar f tn Normal (Negative) 3. Red Blood Cell Count: A bit on the high side and high in iron, but doctor said that this is normal considering the lifestyle I live (body-builder=much more protein/red meat than the average person). 4. Hepatitis B Surface Antigen Test: POSITIVE As all of you already know, I tested positive for the HepB Surface Antigen months back as well, where they didn't find any antibodies and all liver funcion tests came back completely normal.
Avatar n tn Like the others, I had a thryoid test done and the results were normal. I have Type II diabetes. I also have a pituitary tumor. Would either of these make it more difficult to lose weight? I tried to lose weight last year on another diet and after 21 consecutive days at the gym, I did not lose a single lb! Now, it's been several months and I keep working harder and harder, but the scales have been so unkind!
Avatar f tn or not and because I have the PTSD, I have been rejected and dismissed quite often by doctors when I need real help. I also have type 2 diabetes. I have an A1C of 7. I do work out, albeit I am 60 pounds overweight. I do try to eat very healthily. So, here's the scoop: I have been having lots of sweating for a few months now. Hot and cold sweats. I get drenched. Now, for the last week or more, I have these severe chills. It feels like I have a high fever, but there is no fever at all.
