Taking a plane in a week from now I have GAD my sugars suddenly sky high on top of that I been peeing a lot and nose congested is it just part of GAD?

Doctor can evaluate: A pediatrician or family medicine doctor can evaluate to see where the problem is coming from. A person can start by eliminating added sugar from the diet. Limit fruit juice to 6 or 8 ounces a day, and replace the other sugared drinks with plain water. Not drinking enough water can lead to dizziness symptoms. Avoid processed foods, or choose those with the least amount of added sugar. ...Read more

Consider raw vegan: My colleague gabriel cousens md has had astounding success treating diabetes with a raw food vegan diet & has written a book called "there is a cure for diabetes." this is a fairly radical concept not accepted by most doctors but seems well worth trying to see if it works.

What to do if I have diabetes and I'm on the keto diet. What to do if I have moderate ketones (80) in my urine according to my ketostix. My sugar is fine. Will I be okay?

Keto diet: There is a difference between ketones and ketoacidosis. A ketogenic diet can be very helpful in decreasing your blood sugar. It is a matter of using fat to fuel your body more so than carbs. Dr. David Perlmutter's book Grain Brain is my favorite resource for teaching my patients how to eat a ketogenic diet. ...Read more

Now, I don't think you are surrounded by a swarm of bees, but if you have too much sugar (glucose) in your urine you may also be passing more urine than usual too. Except under some really unusual cases this may mean diabetes and should be evaluated by a doctor with a blood test or two. ...Read more

I am a diabetic type one I have been keeping my sugars within my range and drinking plenty of water yet my pee smells of rotten eggs?

HundredYearOldUrine: Bravo keeping the sugar down! If your diet isn't rife with crucifers or other sulfur-containing foods and/or really, really concentrated then that rotten egg (most likely sulfur-like) smell may be due to an infection in the urine, even if you don't have symptoms (yet). As you know, being a diabetic predisposes you to being more predisposed to predispositions....so be disposed to seeing your doctor ...Read more

Seen doc mutiple times, ct scan normal, I have dry hair that's lifeless, throat pain, burps, green stool, frequent peeing, headaches after sugar? Help

Nonspecific symptoms: Assuming routine blood work is normal, then frequent urination is not due to any disease. Headache after eating sugar is very unlikely to be due to any disease, especially if routine blood work is normal. Stool is green when it moves quickly through the gut. That can be caused by many things, but not necessarily serious. Sore throat is common and usually not serious. Dry hair usually not serious. ...Read more
