Managed high BP. healthy diet. Exercise regularly - HIIT. Prediabetic. Cholesterol borderline.Why heart rate increase rapidly after a short day nap?

Heart rate is: regulated under autonomic control and function. Aging, glucose intolerance, medications, physical condition and hydration can all have effects on the autonomic system resulting in variability to the heart rate response to various activities. Sleeping can additionally affect the autonomic responses. I suspect this is normal physiology for you and represents your body's response to these factors. ...Read more

Tolerance (Definition)

When one takes a drug, such as heroin or alcohol, repeatedly, 'tolerance' develops because more of the drug is needed to give the same effect on the body/brain; e.g. Liver enzymes r stimulated to metabolize the drug faster and faster. There may be a strong genetic predisposition to addiction, some studies suggesting that 1 of 10 people will become dependent on alcohol or some ...Read more

Can blood sugar for type i diabetic (age43), onset 3 years ago, be controlled with minimum lantus (insulin glargine) and strict diet of protein, vegetable and fruit?

Can blood sugar for type i diabetic (age43), onset 3 years ago, be controlled with minimum lantus (insulin glargine) and strict diet of protein, vegetable and fruit?

No: If you are truly a type 1 diabetic, then the main treatment for you is insulin. Avoiding Insulin in a type 1 is just going to make you sicker. Lifestyle changes can decrease the amount of Insulin needed to keep your blood sugar normal but you do need to consume adequate amount of calories. ...Read more

My blood test results:
total bilirubin: 1.41 h
ast: 40 h
alt: 100 h
total alk phosphatase: 43 l
serum total protein: 7.1

e.R. Said hepatitis?

Let's try this...: I have only a little bit of the story you've shared. Perhaps it's time to see whether the ast and alt get back to normal after two weeks off alcohol and any not-totally-necessary meds you may be taking. If so, this is the start of a healthier life after alcohol. If not, the workup for virus infections, iron overload, wilson's, autoimmunity & need for exercise can begin. Good luck. ...Read more

High blood pressure 160 /100 my age 29 y.Test show hi level of  triglycerides , hi level (ldl)  low level( hdl) been a year on healthy diet lose 10 kg?

Keep going : The current weight is not provided, but if not at ideal body weight, further weight will likely help. Weight and diet are two pieces of the puzzle. Environmental factors and genetics predisposition are others. Blood pressure of 160/100 is hi for a 29 year old and most would start blood pressure medications at this point. Great job on the < 20 pounds weight loss. ...Read more

I am a t2 diabetic taking insulin. A1c 6.2; 55 yrs old. What does a fasting c-peptide result of 3.4 indicate? Am i making normal levels of insulin?

I am a t2 diabetic taking insulin. A1c 6.2; 55 yrs old. What does a fasting c-peptide result of  3.4 indicate? Am i making normal levels of insulin?

Yes: We need to see the blood sugar level at the time the c-peptide of 3.1 was drawn but in general, this is a good and adequate level. This means that your body is still producing and releasing its own insulin. It means that you are a type 2 diabetic and not close to being a type 1 yet if ever. ...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?

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

Bread raises blood sugar level. If you balance it w/meats (protein + fat) will this stunt the release of insulin, thus keeping BS level lower?

Bread raises blood sugar level.  If you balance it w/meats (protein + fat) will this stunt the release of insulin, thus keeping BS level lower?

A healthy: well-balanced diet is most important. Everything you eat can raise your blood sugar. Eat bread with a lower glycemic index -- less processed. If you're overweight, work on dietary restriction, increased exercise and whatever medication your doctor has prescribed -- and keep monitoring your glucose. ...Read more

I exercise 50-90 minutes a day, eat clean food, never exceed 1600 calories and I cannot stop gaining weight. (174 cm; 64 kg). It is slow, but constant?

Something amiss: Based on your age, gender, weight and height your basal metabolic rate is around 1400 cal/day: thats what you need just to live without moving at all! Odds are you burn more than 200 cal just moving about, without including your exercise. So either something awry with you metabolism and/or your estimated caloric intake. You should review this with your doc. ...Read more
