Diabetes (Definition)

Diabetes is a disease of increased blood glucose levels. Glucose is a type of sugar that comes from the intake of food. Insulin is a type of hormone that removes the glucose from the blood and moves it into the cells to provide them with energy. There are two different types of diabetes: type 1 and type 2. Type 1 diabetes is when the body does not make any insulin. Therefore, glucose stays inside the blood and does not move into the cells. Type 2 diabetes, which is commonly associated with obesity, is when the body is either resistant to the effects of insulin or when the body does not produce enough insulin. Increased levels of glucose in the body causes severe damage to the ...Read more

Should not be meds: If you do not take anything but the Insulin you list. It is probably from dryness. Try putting a cool mist humidifier in your room and coat your nose with ayr nasal gel with vaseline over it at night when you sleep. It should help.

I keep getting nose bleeds, high blood pressure, dizzyness, thirsty. Could it be diabetes?

Could be many things: Thirst per se isn't a symptom of diabetes independent of making lots of urine. People with diabetes even get up in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom and drink. But symptoms show up only when sugar has been chronically high. Diabetes can be diagnosed before symptoms. High BP associated with diabetes. With all this going on please see your doctor. ...Read more

Is there a connection between nose bleeds and eating disorders?

Yes: When having a major nosebleed, sit up straight, tilt your head forward, and pinch the fleshy part of your nose. Take a cold pack wrapped in a rag, and apply kind of on/beneath the nose and cheeks. The key: sit still and do not check your nose to see if it's still bleeding every five seconds. Do not move.

When i injured me knee i had severe pain in my knee but also got a sudden headache, vertigo type sensation and felt about to have a nosebleed. Why?

When i injured me knee i had severe pain in my knee but also got a sudden headache, vertigo type sensation and felt about to have a nosebleed. Why?

Hard to say: It is not really possible to tie all those things together into a single cause. Anatomically, a knee injury should not contribute to a nose bleed or vertigo. I would encourage you to start with a primary care doctor and get a good over all physical exam and go from there. Thank you. ...Read more

Two nose bleeds Fri. (nvr before), legs swollen enough to bruise, armpits feel tingling and left hand, which type of dr other than pcp?

Better with PCP: The PCP will be able to evaluate the situation by additional history, physical findings and may be test results and you may not need a specialist, if you do need one, PCP will be able to make a more informed decision. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex. ...Read more

What should I do about my 4-year-old’s frequent nosebleeds?

Probably normal: This age group is hard because they are nose pickers. Many kids have frequent nosebleeds. In this age it is tough to get the nosebleed to stop completely because of the picking. Increasing the moisturizers (humidified air, moisturizing creams like eucerin, nasal saline sprays or gels) can be helpful. But these treatments are hard for this age group. If it continues to be a problem, see your doc. ...Read more
