2 kids with nonimmune hydrops, 1 f 2 1/2 yrs, 1 m 3 months?

Hydrops fetalis, : Excessive fluid build-up in 2 or more body parts in a fetus, can be pretty severe, as you describe. Non-immune hydrops can be from heart or lung problems, severe anemia (alpha-thalassemia or infections), genetic syndromes or problems in fetal development. I'd seek evaluations of both kids by a geneticist to look for a cause ; by your state's early intervention program to assess their development. ...Read more

Any symptoms?: All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. Having said that, none of the results are a cause for concern. Why were the tests done? Generally it is better to treat the patient rather than laboratory numbers. 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. 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

I had borderline high C-peptide 1.9 ml (lab norm: 0.7-1.9).I stopped taking carbohydrates and in 2 months result was 1.06.Problem or risk of diabetes?

I had borderline high C-peptide 1.9 ml (lab norm: 0.7-1.9).I stopped taking carbohydrates and in 2 months result was 1.06.Problem or risk of diabetes?

Other risk factors: Per your medicine list, you take dexamethasone. Steroids can impact your blood glucose levels, increasing your risk of diabetes. I think the change in your diet was a good thing, and seeing the commensurate decrease in your C-peptide level is promising. If you stay on a lower carb diet, your risk of diabetes will remain low. ...Read more
