When the blood sugar is elevated for an extended period of time, particularly if coupled with high blood pressure, it damages blood vessels throughout the body. In the eye this blood vessel damage can lead to bleeding in the retina or the vitreous cavity. ...Read more

Cervical ectropion due to be treated by laser; symptoms much worse - bleeding daily & abundantly, not related to intercourse. Potential other disease?

Cervical ectropion due to be treated by laser; symptoms much worse - bleeding daily & abundantly, not related to intercourse. Potential other disease?

Not typical: Cervical ectropion is usually just an anatomic variant and not an abnormality. It is possible that this could cause bleeding but is not a common cause. I would confirm the diagnosis. Cervical polyps, endometrial polyps, fibroids, infections and many other things are a more likely cause. ...Read more

Could i be hypoglycemic due to stress? Is it temporarily if only due to stress?

Could i be hypoglycemic due to stress? Is it temporarily if only due to stress?

No: In my 35 years of practice, I have never seen a case of reactive hypoglycemia. The disorder doesn't exist, if you're overweight the symptoms are a natural response to your glucose level returning to normal. A glucose tolerance test (if you've had one) is not and never will be a valid diagnostic test for hypoglycemia. Don't waste your money o GTT or any fad diets of treatments. Lose wt if heavy. ...Read more
