Type 2 diabetes treatment hormone

Common Questions and Answers about Type 2 diabetes treatment hormone


Avatar m tn Hello: Last fall I got a hormone test. Testosterone was 370 and estrogen was 20. But since then I have lost weight probably 30 pounds. My questions are: 1) Is 370 within range for testosterone therapy? (My doctor told me it was normal but it seams low to me) 2) Could my testosterone levels increased do to weight loss? If so does anybody know how much testosterone can fluxuate from weight loss?

Avatar f tn PCOS is a common cause of infertility and puts women at an increased risk of developing Type 2 diabetes. There is also increased risk of insulin resistance, hypertension, and abnormalities of cholesterol and triglycerides in women with PCOS. Due to these risks, we advise our patients with PCOS to have the complete metabolic assessment with complete lipid panel testing and a two hour glucose tolerance test.
Avatar n tn Since she has co-morbid illnesses (coronary artery disease and diabetes mellitus), that will somehow limit the type of chemotherapy drugs that can be used. Depending on her cardiac status, she may not be given anthracyclines like doxorubicin because of the potential cardiotoxicity of the drug. Luckily, there are other available chemotherapy drugs that can be used. The risks and benefits of treatment should be weighed as I have already mentioned. Take care.

1469903 tn?1286650297 Of all the patients with diabetes, only approximately 10% of the patients have type 1 diabetes and the remaining 90% have type 2 diabetes. Type 2 diabetes was also referred to as non-insulin dependent diabetes mellitus (NIDDM), or adult onset diabetes mellitus (AODM). In type 2 diabetes, patients can still produce insulin, but do so relatively inadequately for their body's needs, particularly in the face of insulin resistance as discussed above.

Avatar n tn old boy who was diagnosed with Type I diabetes at the age of 3. Also, my sister was diagnosed (2 yrs. prior to my son) at the age of 24. She is now 32. My sis takes lantus and humalog, just like your daughter does. I do not have diabetes, however, I do understand that the weight issue is frustrating and sometimes even depressing. My sister has had a very similar situation to your daughter's. It wasn't until recently that she lost some weight.
Avatar f tn I have a damaged pituitary and Hashi's. My Growth Hormone blood test is 0.03 [0.01-8.00] I'm a 49yr old female, abnormal on all sex hormones. What is the normal for someone my age? I asked the doc if I need replacement GH and he says he doesn't know. When I called the ins. company about coverage, they asked for a diagnosis and treatment code, and I don't know these. Are there tests that you have to take in order to prove that your pituitary can't be stimulated to make this?

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.
492869 tn?1285022533 When I have recieved IV I have felt literally 'great'. I have recently asked my cardio if I can have this as a form of treatment, but with no luck. He did say I can have it when things are really bad, soooo....when I am I just have to find the strength and the 'ability' to stand up to get there!!! I have heard LOTS of positive talk from Dysautonomia patients regarding this and wish that our doctors would seriously consider listing this as a 'standard' form of treatment.
16141151 tn?1445611178 So, now I am taking the birth control pill to control estrogen, I am taking a small dose of synthroid to help my thyroid, and we are going to wait and see for the next tests to decide if the growth hormone should be supplemented too. I am still on 15mg cortef and 1-2 sprays of DDAVP per day. My body has changed- I am gaining weight and it is mostly on the back and at my waist above my ribs. My skin is different (dryer, less elastic), and overall I don't feel quite right.
Avatar n tn to be honest most of these never worked well for me, in-fact the extender type traction device I would wear 2 hours per night for 3 days straight and 1-2 days rest for a continued period of 3 months.
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 I smoke basically all the time (even in school) and i have type 1 diabetes. It's affected my motivation for school and my grades have fallen slightly but all in all its not changed my life. Ive been diabetic for 13 years (since i was 3) and i still went out and got absolutely steaming. For a while i was the one who was always sick, always a state and it was great. It didnt affect my diabetes. So then i discovered weed which i liked better, could control easier and had more fun with.
Avatar f tn could be, as you said, a flu type thing. Yes, 1/2 in the morning, and 1/2 around noon is what I was suggesting. What happens when you take the whole dose at once, is that the T3 wears off after a few hours and you don't have enough left to get through the day. You may, eventually, be able to increase to the 60 mg, taking 30 in the morning, and 30 later in the day, but not right now. I have read some of STTM books; however, I have little faith in either the books or the website.
Avatar n tn Hi Jonodaigle, I am a volunteer on this forum, not a medical professional, so I can only speak from experience of a Type I Diabetic. I have not heard of artifical sweeteners making diabetes treatment difficult. Perhaps others on this forum have had a different experience.
476246 tn?1418874514 We observed the emergence of new epidemic subtypes (subtypes 1a and 3) linked to intravenous drug use and a decrease in the types linked to blood transfusion and nosocomial infection (epidemic subtype 1b and endemic type 2). Replacing G1b and 2 with 1a and 3a is occurring worldwide. In the West anyway. Its what is happening here in Aust.
Avatar f tn I believe that I am suffering from extrahepatic manifestations of HCV, and have been since 1999. I have insulin resistance, type 2 diabetes, fibromyalgia, severe fatigue and HCV related rheumatological conditions. I learned that the above are extrahepatic manifestation at www.hcvadvocate.org, a very professional and informative HCV web resource. I tried HCV treatment to stop/lessen the extrahepatic manifestations.
Avatar n tn The rise in mental illness has risen almost at the same rate as our consumption of sugar which rise at about 2% each year. Now it is at about 160lbs per year.

Avatar m tn Does anyone have reference to any studies done on POST treatment alcohol consumption or know anyone who consumed alcohol POST treatment who had only stage 1 slight liver damage? I'm NOT refering to someone with active Hep C or major liver damage. I'm also aware that too much alcohol is not a good thing. I know what opinions people have, I'm looking for facts or personal experiences. Once TX is over either the HCV is gone (cured) or it's not, is that not correct?
12773 tn?1328916786 I have not posted in a long time, as I did try to get on with my life after treatment. I am 2. 5 years post treatment for 48 wks, geno type 1 a. And am still Clear, but seem to have other health issues going on right now, and wondering how much of it is attributed to the drugs, the riba pills. I now have inflammation of my esophagus, stomach and colon, found 2 precancerous polyps, and bleeding ulcers. Now just got a call from my female doctor, and and they found lumps on my mammagram.
1434731 tn?1382725984 Well I have read and heard about doing this but I'm **** it my own way. Pcos diet is basically eat a big breakfast, medium lunch and small dinner. I am doing that but I'm doing it like this. Larger breakfast with carbs Medium lunch with light to no carbs Small dinner with no or very little (cuz sometimes you can avoid it) carbs. I like the low carb diet but its to hard to do living with my pizza and carb loving hubby!
Avatar f tn my parents did not believe the doctor at the time( even though it runs in the family) and allowed me to go untreated until i was 18 and i went to a doctor on my own. i now have diabetes, and p.c.o.s as well as the hoshimoto's/hypo. im a college student, work, and live in my fiance's mothers house so we do not have a kitchen to cook in all the time. its tough to stick to a strict diet.
Avatar n tn It appears that ACTH release is also controlled by ADH (antidiuretic hormone)/AVP (arginine vasopressine). This little hormone, according to endos, controls how much water your body keeps in. read about diabetes insipidus or SIADH as those are the standard disorders endos run into involving ADH. But the paper says it also plays a role in regulating ACTH production thus adding a whole extra-complicated-addition to how cortisol secretion is controlled.
Avatar m tn I saw an endocrinologist 2 weeks ago and had further blood samples taken and tested... I have not had any other medication and none has even been suggested or mentioned. Is this common experience ? Would medication at an early stage not be beneficial ?? Should I be asking anything in particular of the ophthalmologist and neurosurgeon when I see them ? Thanks in advance.....
1139187 tn?1355710247 Or take 1/2 the T4 at bedtime, !/2 T4 and 1/2 T3 in am and 1/2 T3 around 3pm ? It just seems like you shouldn't feel so lousy when you wake up. Remember I told you that normally the thyroid hormones peak around 3am. So glad the T3 is making you feel better. About time you got a break !
Avatar f tn I've just begun self-testing and I've had three readings of 88 (afternoon, no food), 89 (morning before eating or drinking), and 139 (two hours after eating). My mother's family has Type I diabetes (8 out of 11 total) and my father developed Type II before he died. I'm concerned because I have very high "highs" and very low "lows" complete with blurred vision, shaking, anxiety, and constant urination.
Avatar m tn Hi, I am living a very difficult situation with my wife and I have come to consider that the root cause might me some hormone imbalance, possibly thyroid related. I will try to summarize it and make it short : within few months my wife has drastically changed and our lives too consequently : we came from (just 6-7 months ago) planing the future, and having a second child (we have a 2 yrs old daughter) to her wanting to separate, neglecting our daughter...
