Cutting down on carbohydrates, eating a heathy diet are important as is getting to a good weight that is within healthy BMI. But do note that simply working on it and losing 'some' weight is better than nothing and you will impact your health in a positive way by doing this. As for hypertension/high blood pressure. Again, there are life style things to try.
Avatar n tn My husband has type 2 diabetes and refuses to get treatment. He also has hypertension, sleep apnea and you can feel his heart beat through his chest. Does anyone have a guess on what his life expectancy would be if I can't get him to the doctors.
Avatar m tn on G2 ,including the current treatment regimes as well as possible future thaerpies being tested Best to you and welcome to the group....

Avatar n tn I was told it was 'borderline type II Diabetes'. So, would that be the problem then? If so how would I handle that? I've also had a diagnosis of Fibromyalgia -though a lot of the symptoms have eased (if not abated yet),since starting thyroid med. The only BP that I take is HCTZ diuretic(hydrochlorothiazide) 25mgs in the morning. Would you consider that aggressive enough treatment? I was prescribed Inderal initially, along with the diuretic.
Avatar n tn Watch that blood sugar. By mildly elevated, do you mean impaired fasting glucose (110-125), impaired glucose tolerance (2 hour BG >= 140 and <199) or mild diabetes (FBG 126 and up and/or 2 hour BG >=200)? Even "mild" diabetes will cause severe damage given enough time, and already indicates significant pancreas damage (basically one has beta cell failure - insulin resistance alone doesn't cause diabetes - until the pancreas gets damaged from overwork).
Avatar n tn (same with type 2 diabetes) Same risk factors, I am comparing apples to apples. Maybe it is something in the environment... She needs to get checked for lead excess too. I have lost too many years of my life to being sick. If my doctor's and I had been more aggressive at looking for causes as quickly as possible, the last couple of years of my life and my life now would likely have been significantly better. Well at least the hypertension diagnosis did eventually get the ball rolling.
1351808 tn?1276904027 An HbA1c of 6.5% or higher is suggestive of diabetes. Another advantage of HbA1c is that it allows doctors to more reliably diagnose diabetes in hospitalized patients. Any illness creates a sympathetic “fight-or-flight” response that drives up heart rate, blood pressure, and, it turns out, glucose levels. As a result, a patient who has an elevated FPG in the hospital may have diabetes or just be hyperstimulated.

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 1) Side Effects - most people probably do have subclinical side effects that they either do not notice (ie - slight flattening of psyche and shaving a point or two off of mental acuity) or do not attribute to INF combo therapy (ie - arthritic symptoms commencing and developing 2 months to one year post-end of treatment). 2) Beats the alternative -- Wait now, what is the alternative? Certain death from liver cancer or liver failure? That seems to be what you suggest.
Avatar m tn If you are e-positive then the end of treatment is becoming e-negative. If you are e-negative then the end of treatment is less clear and needs further discussion.
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 f tn Most of the time losing weight is the only thing necessary to rid oneself of the metabolic syndrom. So many people could go off their Type 2 dibetes drugs, BP & Cholesterol meds if they just lost weight. I recall one study that said losing as little as 10lbs starts to decrease the metabolic syndrom #'s. And they continue to decline towards normal the closer you get to your recommended BMI. It is a real shame that people would rather take meds then lose weight.
Avatar m tn Any suggestions on better or not so better meds to treat beginning stage of type 2 diabetes? There appears to be many. All have different side effects, etc... I think my exercise and diet plan has held me off meds so far, but later showing higher glucose levels AM (>150) etc...
Avatar n tn littleOne, Sorry to read of your troubles. Thanks for your interesting questions. I have never heard of isolated supine (laying) hypotension (low blood pressure) outside of the third-term pregnant female. However, a small percentage of patients with hypertension will have orthostatic hypertension (standing high blood pressure). Causes for this finding include diabetes, autonomic dysfunction syndromes, and other rarer diseases.
476246 tn?1418874514 In all my research about type 3 I have heard that fatty liver can be common but no acceleration of fibrosis. Type 3 can be easy to treat, but variables like fibrosis level... can make it difficult. I don't think there are strict variables but with type 3 race, weight, fibrosis level and viral load can impact treatment strategy. Again I think the 4 week viral load is important to doctors today.
Avatar m tn I still don’t have a diagnosis and have had little that can be called focused treatment. What treatment I had was limited to two periods of extended use of high levels of prednisone to relieve significant episodes of orbital swelling in order to avoid permanent loss of eyesight. That would partially relieve the problem for the period I was taking the medicine and for a handful of months afterwards, but it would always return.
378273 tn?1262101221 Congestive Heart Failure (1 point) Hypertension (1 point) Age over 75 years (1 point) Diabetes Mellitus (1 point) Stroke or TIA history (2 points) Mitral Stenosis or prosthetic heart valve carry similar risk and also indicate Warfarin I see that you definitely meet criteria with 1 point for HTN. Please call your Dr regarding this.
Avatar m tn This is because nerve damage can occur even before a type 2 diabetes diagnosis, when a person has prediabetes. Poorly managed blood sugar control can damage the blood vessels and nerves, including the blood vessels and nerves in the penis. This type of nerve damage can prevent a man from getting and sustaining an erection. But good news is that both Insulin Resistance and Pre-Diabetes can be reversed, thereby often removing underlying causes of ED. Try to lose some weight.

Avatar m tn This drug is devastating to the liver and it alone may account for many of his worse symptoms, perhaps even the progression from stage 2 to stage 4 in the relatively short time of less than 8 years.
271194 tn?1350506963 I 'm 66 and have had Type 2 diabetes for about 2 years, and hypertension for about 6, also raised cholesterol. My untreated BP was around 180-200/110-120 - so not good! Back in 2007 I was getting quite a bit of chest pain and was investigated, but with treatment my BP fell to around 115-130/65-80 and I had no problems. (At this time I was not diagnosed with diabetes. I have had a mild cardiac murmur since childhood, but this is considered insignificant.
Avatar n 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 This type of MS, which ultimately develops in approximately 80 percent of RRMS patients, causes the greatest amount of neurologic disability. 2) Number of brain lesions usually correlates with progression of disease (i.e. more symptoms). 3) I understand that you had tried Betaseron, Solumedrol, Novantrone. Treatment directed at the progressive phase of MS is typically more difficult than treatment of relapsing forms of MS.
Avatar n tn 37:57 It would be unusual for a sudden onset of hypertension but possible. Have you had any history at all of high blood pressure or other medical conditions. Here is some additional info on high blood pressure. High blood pressure, or hypertension (HTN) , is defined in an adult as a blood pressure greater than or equal to 140 mm Hg systolic pressure or greater than or equal to 90 mm Hg diastolic pressure. Blood pressure is measured in millimeters of mercury (mm Hg).
Avatar n tn High blood pressure can occur in children or adults, but is particularly prevalent in blacks, middle-aged and elderly people, obese people, heavy drinkers and women who are taking oral contraceptives. Individuals with diabetes mellitus gout or kidney disease have a higher frequency of hypertension. High blood pressure may be primary (essential) or secondary. If the hypertension is secondary there may be a treatable cause. Most of these causes are relatively rare (i.e.
253566 tn?1219683299 My only issue is that my hemoglobin is below normal and had been dropping slowing but consistently for at least 6 weeks and I couldn't figure it out except that my surgeon once said he was afraid that I would have residual anemia because of all the treatment I did. Part of my drug regimen since transplant has been magnesium oxide and 2 weeks ago I realized I had forgotten to refill it and had been off it for 2 months or longer. I started taking it immediately and my Hb went from 11.9 to 12.
