A1c 5.7  glucose 120   insulin 122.1  ,  do I need any meds,  am i diabetic or pre diabetic.  Family history type 1 diabetes.

Pre-diabetes: Impaired faisting glucose is used to describe fasting glucose btw 100 and 125. Your Insulin level is also quite high suggesting that your body does not respond to Insulin normall (insulin resistance). Losing weight will help your body improve its responsiveness to Insulin and keep sugars in a normal range. Many people w/ Insulin resistance do well w/ diet with minimal sugar & white flour. ...Read more

Hba1c=6,6% diagnosis diabetes. metformine for 6m hba1c=6,2%.So I tested glycemia every 2 h for 2days,never hyperglycaemia:healing or wrong diagnosis?

Hba1c=6,6% diagnosis diabetes. metformine for 6m hba1c=6,2%.So I tested glycemia every 2 h for 2days,never hyperglycaemia:healing or wrong diagnosis?

Several points.: Glycemia test while on diabetic medication isnt entirely valid. The AiC of 6.6% with treatment makes it very UNlikely to NOT be a diabetic (its very high for normal; pretty good for diabetic WITH TREATMENT). At really good levels, getting slightly better and moving into the category of not diabetic , impaired glycemic control occurs, but I think diabetic is more accurate. ...Read more

Celiac. B12 serum high and increasing despite no vitamins (per doc). Muscles burn, legs weak, confused. 'functional' B12 defi possible? Doc stumped.

MTHFR, iron, celiac: Could be a B12 metabolism error. Check mthfr dna and replace with methyl b12, pyridoxal-5-phosphate, l-methyl folate (folic acid). Bloodwork is only testing Cyanocobalamin - inactive form which is accumulating apparently. Also check iron studies and zinc levels due to celiac, and add multi b since fortified wheat is out. ...Read more

Is LDL level 88 HDL 42, trig 115, & tc 153 bad for obese 54 y  male with hbp, &controlled diabetes A1c 5.1. Any guidelines to follow or statin needed?

No: Your lipid profile numbers are excellent. Obesity is a threat to your health; probably led to hbp and diabetes. Better health in your case means loosing weight. A plant-based diet would do the trick. This is also good to prevent cancer. Watch " forks over knives", a video on the science of a plant-based diet. Also shows some obese patients whose hbp and dm disappeared on that diet. ...Read more

I'm suffering frm chronic calcific pancreatititis and diabetes mellitus. I'm 28yrs. What's the future treatment.
