Can 2nd Degree Type 1 Heat Bloxk Progress Into Type 2
No: Type 2 diabetes is an Insulin resistant form of diabetes. Many but not all persons with type 2 end up on Insulin over time because their bodies lose the ability to make enough Insulin to meet their needs. Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune disease in which the body attacks the cells in the pancreas that make insulin. It is therefore an Insulin deficient form and always requires Insulin therapy. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Is type 2 diabetes a lesser evil? Can type 2 become type 1 or vice versa? Can folks with type 1 be cured like folks with type 2 no longer need meds?
Diabetes 1 vs 2: Type 1 diabetes refers to the type where one totally stops making Insulin (e.g. Due to pancreas antibodies) and therefore Insulin is generally the only treatment possible . Type 1 can affect all ages including children/adolescents. Type 2 diabetes is more prevelant due to the increase in obesity rates. Eventually most type 2 diabetics need Insulin but weight loss can reverse it. Oral meds help. ...Read more
Severe endo and stage 1 pre cancer . Would a hysterectomy be best ? How fast can it turn into stage 5 ? I'm in severe pain everyday.
Precancer: At your age I am assuming you mean cervical precancer (dysplasia). Most cases of cervical precancer if watched closely after the HPV vaccine or even with condom use for HPV load reduction resolve spontaneously. I would consider lupron (leuprolide) and/or lapararoscopic surgery before hyst at your age. If you were 35 or more, I would say go for it. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
HSV: Serologically there is no chance the virus can change between hsv 1 and hsv 2. However, the virus is named for the location of the outbreak. Therefore, a patient with hsv 2 (gential lesion) receives oral sex from a non infected patient can acquire hsv, but will be named hsv 1, for an oral outbreak. Only if a blood test is done can you correctly identify the virus. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

How can Dr have diagnosed me with stage 1 bladder cancer if deep muscle tissue wasn't obtained? T1 N0 M0 L0 V0 G low grade.
No: But what happens as type two diabetes progresses one eventually ends up "insulin dependant" meaning that the oral medications don't work as well. In theory, a person with type two diabetes COULD then develop LADA ( ate onset autoimmune diabetes) IN ADDITION to type two diabetes. This is the same physiology as juvenille diabetes or type one, it can present in adults. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I've had muscle spasms in the lower back& told two diff. Things. 2 docs said to apply ice & 1 said heat. I'm confused, which is best to reduce?
Muscle spasm: Actually both are right in terms of using these modalities to treat pain or spasm. Generally ice is reserved for the first 24-48hrs after your symptoms develop and heat is used thereafter. There is no concrete scientific evidence that one is much better than another or that it makes a difference to use them or not. If there's inflammation use cold before heat, thereafter do what feels good. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

How can I find out whether CMV was instrumental in preticipating an early onset of labor or not? Igg 2, 9 (grey zone 0, 85-1, 1)
Cytomegalovirus: You have asked about this previously. There is no way to definitively exclude the possibility but absent an igm antibody titer, or rising igg titers over a several week time frame there is no way to prove whether this may have initiated early onset labor. Many people have antibodies to cmv, some that are actually cross immune reactions to other herpes viruses (yes, CMV is a herpesvirus), . ...Read more
Difference: The symptoms are not the issue but the cause is . Type 1 is a lack of insulin. You get ill right away with symptoms of increased appetite, thirst, urination and weight loss. You need Insulin to be replaced. Type 2 is a state of Insulin resistance. These symptoms take much longer to present . Insulin is present but the tissues do not respond as well. This can be handled with oral medication ...Read more
What's something from the patient's history and/or investigations used to accurately distinguish between type 1 and 2 diabetes?
GAD antibodies: Type 1 diabetes has anti-islet antibodies or anti-gad antibodies; these can be measured if the precise diagnosis is important. Type 1 diabetics are "younger", require Insulin from the beginning, are thinner, and are prone to ketoacidosis. Type 2's usually don't require Insulin initially, are heavier, older, and often have a stronger family history. There are some people who are hard to classify. ...Read more
Question: if two people with more or less body build are standing on a corner, one feels hot and the other feels mild. What is causes feeling of heat ?
Different people: You have just shown a lovely example of how people differ -- and that these differences go deeper than physical makeup alone. We have different temperaments and preferences, different experiences of the same events. One feels "hot" and the other feels "mild". No right or wrong here -- just variability! or maybe the "hot" one is wearing secret silk underwear? That could make a difference. :-). ...Read more

I was in the heat all day. I have a small sunburn. But now my right arm hurts, and fingertips tingle like I hurt it when I did not. Type 1 diabetic ?
Tingling from edema: Bing in the heat all day with sunburn suggests some dehydration possible, and drinking water is key. The tissues of the arm are prone to swelling and that can cause the "right arm" pain and tingling fingers. One would suggest elevation of the arm to decrease swelling, squeezing a nerf ball, 20 min ice and 20 min off. With decrease swelling, the pain should subside. Type I diabetic risks infection ...Read more

Heat rash - keep dry: If it is truly a heat rash, there is no specific treatment, other than sponging, bathing with cool (not cold) water and ensuring that he/she wears natural, absorbing fiber, like cotton next to the skin, as a heat rash is usually caused by sweating a lot. Also keeping cool and well ventilated. If the rash gets worse, it is better to see a doctor to confirm the diagnosis. ...Read more

The artery also runs through the same canal so it may get compressed cutting off a little blood supply resulting in slight pallor compared to the other hand. Take frequent breaks and stretch your hands and wrists. ...Read more
