Is burning vaginal area, cold feet, feeling cold related to diabetes?

Is burning vaginal area, cold feet, feeling cold related to diabetes?

Most likely not: I could stretch and say yes (high sugar contributes to infection and your yeast could give vaginal burning; circulation could be affected with peripheral arterial disease so don't smoke! ; blood sugar irregularity could mess with your hypothalamic set point and make you feel cold), but I'm not going to. Look for more common explanations for your complaints and keep your sugars in excellent control. ...Read more

My dad has diabetes so does that mean I will have diabetes?

My dad has diabetes so does that mean I will have diabetes?

No: Hi. Genetics play a very strong role in type 2 diabetes and generally much less of a role in type 1. We don't know what type your dad is. Having said that, type 2 has a HUGE lifestyle component...live healthily, eat healthily, exercise regularly, maintain ideal body weight, and your type 2 risk goes way down even with strong family history. If you suspect diabetes, get tested. Good luck! ...Read more

Does having keton in your urine mean you might have diabetes?

Does having keton in your urine mean you might have diabetes?

Urine Ketones: Yes and no. Ketones end up in urine as a result of a person using fat as an energy source. This can happen during dieting, during fasting, anytime carbohydrate intake is limited. Diabetes results from Insulin being absent or ineffective. Insulin makes it possible for sugars to enter cells and become energy. If Insulin is absent or doesn't work that is like fasting. So, yes or no. ...Read more

Hi, I have a qestion regarding the ogtt (75 g): if the 1 h result is above 11 mmol/l (200 mg/dl) could that mean diabetes? Or only the 2 h one? Thx:)

Hi, I have a qestion regarding the ogtt (75 g): if the 1 h result is above 11 mmol/l (200 mg/dl) could that mean diabetes? Or only the 2 h one? Thx:)

The 2 hour one.: This test is designed to see how the body reacts to a sugar challenge after 2 hours. It is also important to get your glucose level before the test, as anything >125 mg/dl is diagnostic of diabetes anyway. As for the ogtt, if your 2 hour is <=140 mg/dl, it's normal, if >140 but <200, it's impaired glucose tolerance, and if > 200, it confirms diabetes. I hope this helps. ...Read more

What happens if you had a blood sugar of 80 does that mean I couldn't have diabetes?
