Common Questions and Answers about Type 2 diabetes treatment recommendations


Avatar f tn Well, it following these guidelines "might" work, however, they have never been shown to.
Avatar n tn Hi I treated about three years ago with pegasys/and copegus. I stopped treatment after 19 weeks due to an infection in the eye which frightened me, and also emotional problems encountered at work because I stupidly refused to take antidepressants (I literally went off at work). I want to get well, though, and get on with my life. So, I am considering trying Pegintron/Riba this time (which I hear is much more difficult than pegasys). I need advice.
Avatar n tn Hello, I am a 29 year old female, diagnosed with Type I diabetes when I was 25. I was always a picture of health and never had any "health" problems until now. Not to make excuses or anything, but knowing that I have this to deal with this has made me extremely depressed, so depressed that at times I don't take my insulin and I also think that in my mind I'm afraid of being over weight. It didn't help that my mother passed away suddenly either.
2168193 tn?1337167287 I am type-2 diabetic patient. Taking pills Tribate three times a day. My brother in law is also type-2 diabetic and taking the same tablet Tribate. This medicine is containing "Pioglitazone". Recently we both had suffered with prostate-urine infection seriously and both were admitted to hospital. Doctors starts antibiotics etc and the infection was controlled.
1351808 tn?1276904027 Although people with diabetes are at risk for serious medical complications, with close monitoring and treatment they need not suffer from them. The problem is 1 in 4 people with diabetes don’t even know it. Compared to many other diseases, diabetes can be diagnosed easily. In people without any symptoms of the illness, two routine blood tests can provide the diagnosis. The first is to screen for the disease; if abnormal, the test is repeated.
Avatar n tn Hi huggles! We are volunteers with experience in dealing with type 1 diabetes, not medical professionals so any information that I pass on to you should be verified with your healthcare team. I have no personal experience with the situation you describe with your fingers, although I have dealt with carpal tunnel syndrome myself and have been treated with great success by my chiropractor (I know, it's hard to believe, but I'm living proof).
Avatar n tn I've had Type 1 Diabetes since I was 8 years old (am now a 29 year old Mom with no complications). His Fasting blood sugar is too low. A "normal" blood sugar (what we strive to reach) is between 80-120. For a Diabetic it's very difficult to stay within this range, so it is extremely important to test often (I test 10 times a day just to be sure). I also now wear an Insulin pump by Minimed (have had it for 5 years and would never go back).
Avatar n tn BACK to the original question - does marijuana affect type 1 diabetes? no. I've been type 1 diabetic for 9 years and between alcohol and marijuana, I will ALWAYS choose marijuana since alcohol lowers my blood sugar and sometimes leads to me having seizures.

Avatar f tn i live in CT and i flew out to see her. i have been suffering for 2 years with no one to help and she has got me on a treatment plan. i am doing manual lymphatic drainage with a licensed therapist along with wear compression garments, have you heard of this helping?
Avatar n tn However, I am going to ask again. I am also genotype 2 and would love to get treatment over as quickly as possible, but, not at the risk of relapsing. Will let you know what else she has to say.
Avatar f tn ) too that I am speaking for the perspective of a Type 1, and do not know how type 2 works differently. I try to understand why they say anyone cannot be a diabetic when they have above the safe range readings and its ok when activity brings it down. Do non diabetics have a drop in blood sugar when they are active? They cannot go below the safe range, or they have some type of condition, correct?
Avatar f tn I was talking about all the talk about the virus returning to wild type and the resitance mutations disappearing in 2 years time. Tracy Swan from Treatment Action Group and Jules Levin from NATAP are experts on this subject and that is where I am getting most of my information regarding resistance and the fact that no one can say that it is totally gone unless the patient is put on drugs again. .
29837 tn?1414538248 Numerous other studies show that ALA is useful for the treatment of diabetes mellitus and syndrome X because it increased cellular glucose utilization. And significantly reduces insulin resistance. Diabetic neuropathy originates from a decrease in blood flow to various organs. This results in an accumulation of free radicals that can destroy nerve function. In one study, ALA brought about a significant reduction of neuropathic symptoms in 23 patients.
Avatar f tn I check my glucose daily and when I see it's high I take it but if it's okay I don't. I'm supposed to be taking 2 other diabetes medication but I don't. When I take all of them then I become hypoglicemic (?). Basically my glucose level becomes too low. 7. B-12 1000 mcg - I take 1000mcg daily. I was prescribe this back in late September when I was first diagnosed with MS. They said my B-12 was too low. 8. Mirtazapine 15 mg - On this one I got it from a psychiatrist.
Avatar n tn They say that heaven helps those who help themselves. I was also successful at finding treatment via online correspondence for a condition (retinally-induced aniseikonia) which the local doctors found "untreatable." How did we cope before the Internet?
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 The « gastrointestinal doctor in Québec, Canada» Has given me the choice to proceed with the triple treatment but suggested that I wait for 3 to 5 years for an optional treatment which may have less side effects. I am wagering for the treatment because I am presently eligible for insurance coverage that will not be available to me in 3 years when my husband retires from his present employment.

Avatar f tn Was diagnosed 4 years ago w/diabetes type 2. Went to all the classes, was put on Metformin and a couple other meds. Taught to check my blood sugar a couple times a day. Knew I had to lose weight, change to a healthier diet, and get exercise. Was noncompliant with education/meds/blood sugar monitoring/weight loss/exercise/dietary recommendations. Now I have swollen feet and I feel terrible. My feet became very swollen for the first time yesterday.

1344197 tn?1392822771 A report today from the influential Institute of Medicine sets the first formal recommendations for daily intakes of calcium and vitamin D for bone health, and suggests that most people are getting what they need. The recommended amounts are higher than guidelines set 13 years ago that were simply estimates, but the vitamin D recommendations immediately drew criticism from some experts who said they are still far too low.
Avatar n tn She is 74 years old and in generally good health. Has Type II diabetes. She just started on a chemo treatment of Gemzar and will do 3 weeks on and 1 week off. Next week her oncologist will also have her start Tarceva. My sisters and I want to take her for a second opinion and would like to see if someone can recommend a hospital in the NY/NJ area that specializes in treating pancreatic cancer patients..
Avatar m tn Type 1 - Hypoglycemia [low glucose] Type 2 - Hyperglycemia [high glucose] Type 1.5 - aka LADA [Latent Autoimmune Diabetes in Adults] "Dabetics, both type 1 and type 2 can have hypoglycemic episodes." Another fact, when t2 Diabetics [note sp] experience hypoglycemic episodes they are usually caused by an outside influence; too much medication or insulin. Bottom line, hypoglycemia does not occur on its own with t2'ers. "Granted it is a disfunction of the spleen" Huh?
Avatar m tn The society says bringing a patient’s elevated Lp(a) cholesterol level under 50 mg/dL should be a treatment priority. Lp(a), not LDL, it’s one of the most significant risk factors for coronary disease. Elevated Lp(a) cholesterol tends to be genetic, so people with a family history of early arterial disease should check the level. Ask your doctor to order a VAP blood test. ( that's the test from Quest Diagnostics) Or the LPP test from Spectracell.
Avatar m tn From what I have read so far, it seems to be reasonable.
