Can you tell me if i smoke weed is it possible for it to drop my bg to an unsafe level?

Can you tell me if i smoke weed is it possible for it to drop my bg to an unsafe level?

Bg = blood glucose??: Am not sure if that is what you mean by "bg" - this is not an acronym I am familiar with. But if that is what you mean, I am not aware of any association between marijuana and hypoglycemia. However, if your appetite is stimulated so that you have a food binge, and you are susceptible to reactive hypoglycemia, it might be the munchies causing low blood sugar rather than the marijuana itself. ...Read more

My fastingbg is96 &postprandial bg=typically 95.I'm on victoza, (liraglutide) metformin but also oxyelite pro.Lowcarb diet.Could oxyelite pro be raising myfastingbg?

Dangerous supplement: Your fbg is normal. Hopefully your a1c is also good, so it looks like you are controlling your diabetes well. Oxyelite pro contains caffeine, but also dmma. Dmma was designed as a nasal decongestant but is a powerful stimulant that may have caused a number of deaths. It is a banned olympic additive. You don't need this! ...Read more

L endoscopic hernia repair.  Pmh:  mild  l cerebral palsy.  I had l spasms coming out of anesthesia.  S/p 1 mo. I have a painful large 3rd testicle?

PostOp Seroma: It is very common for fluid to accumulate where the old hernia was immediately after surgery. It can feel just like a hernia but will not "yo-yo" in and out. Best option would be to see your surgeon in-person so they can examine you & reassure you that all is well. ...Read more

Minet maid apple juice made my stomach hurt. Hurt more when laying on it on hard surface. Having more bowel movents lately small amonts though some bg?

Apple juice causes..: Apple juice causes gas and loose stools in some people. Doctors give children apple juice to make them go poop, to get rid of constipation (apple juice has sugar and sorbitol, which makes kids poop). Some other fruits and juices can have the same effect. Of course, one's stomach problems can also be due to other causes, so a doctor's evaluation may be needed. ...Read more

Will body tissues previously harmed with high bg levels start to restore since bg levels are normalized? I mean for the vessels, nerves, kidneys.

Will body tissues previously harmed with high bg levels start to restore since bg levels are normalized? I mean for the vessels, nerves, kidneys.

Most improve: Randomized clinical trials of patients with diabetes have shown that more intensive glucose control can improve nerve, kidney and eye damage. Generally this takes 3-5 years to manifest, so it is best to get the glucose under control asap. Blood vessel damage has only been shown to be improved in one study and that took 10 years. BP and cholesterol treatment can help reduce heart attack and stroke. ...Read more

I have no history of medical problems, that means I don't have health insurance. How do I get on it? Because I wanna get treated

Question not clear: I am sorry. Your question is not clear. If you have no medical problems, then what do you "wanna get treated" for? If you just want to have health insurance just in case you get ill or injured, your best options are to get a job with health insurance, search the internet for various (high-rated) health plans. Your best policy will most likely be a high-deductible policy (cheapest, but covers big $. ...Read more

I quite smoking 4 wks ago.Type 1 diabetic.Since a wk ago, both fasting & post meal blood sugar are high.Anything I can do to get BG back under control?

Adjust your insulin: and your diet. It is common when people quit smoking to have an increase in appetite, and that may be the primary cause. Smoking cessation can also increase anxiety temporarily and this can drive blood sugar up. Your primary care or endocrine specialist can tell you how to add short-acting insulins to reduce your blood sugar, and may need to adjust your long-acting insulins as well. Stay quit!! ...Read more

BG levels all over the place w/home glucometer. After waking I took 5 consecutive samples: 82, 105, 55, 93, & 90. Calibrated properly. What's up?

BG levels all over the place w/home glucometer.  After waking I took 5 consecutive samples:  82, 105, 55, 93, & 90.  Calibrated properly.  What's up?

Glucometer: The glucometer is only plus/minus 20%. It is designed to give a number that a diabetic can use to adjust his insulin dose. Of those 5 numbers, they are all consistent except for the 55. How much blood did you get? Did you have to "milk" your finger? Was there still alcohol on the finger? All these things can affect the reading. ...Read more

Experiencing bouts of lightheadedness; often after bending or kneeling. No BG trouble hx. Checked lately- fasting has ranged 59-74. Dr? Or Not needed?

Positional dizziness: Positional dizziness can be a sign that there is some problem with maintaining blood flow to the brain. A thorough discussion of symptoms and medical history will be needed before a physician can begin to give recommendations. Many times, symptoms occur as a medication side effect, dehydration, viral illness, diet change; but there will be clues for a physician to narrow the list. Good luck! ...Read more
