How Are Renal Glycosuria And Diabetes Different
2 different things: For reasons we don't understand, sometimes the kidneys may allow some glucose to slip out into the urine even when the blood level of glucose is normal. This can be detected by a urine dipstick test. In diabetes, the blood level of glucose will be high. In some diabetics, the blood glucose gets so high that the sugar spills over into the urine also. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Old latin term: Type i diabetes, juvenile diabetes is found in children who have lost pancreatic production of Insulin and have poor growth, frequent infections and elevated blood sugar. This may be autoimmune or allergy driven. Type ii diabetes, adult onset, commonly found in patients with Insulin resistance, central obesity and poor exercise habits. The latin term is now shortened to diabetes (type i or ii). ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Very different: Diabetes mellitus is the typical "diabetes" that we are familiar with. It's caused by an Insulin problem (too little or just not working well (resistance)) causing elevation in blood sugar. Diabetes insipidus is a water problem characterized by lots of urination and high sodium level. It's caused by an ADH (vasopressin) (antidiuretic hormone) problem (too little or just not working well). ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
No: Glycosuria means blood in the urine, most commonly associated with diabetes, whereas hypolglycemia means low blood sugar, seen if subjects have administered too much Insulin or have an insulinoma. (insulin producing tumor) they are not related as a result of sugar in the urine leaking from the kidney causing the blood sugar to fall. Good question but the two are not related. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Diabetes: Hi. The only things to be concerned with are diabetes and its common precursor, prediabetes. Prediabetes has a very high rate of progression to diabetes. The very (and I mean VERY) rare risk of hypoglycemia in non-diabetics (insulin-producing tumors or beta cell hyperplasia) is so extremely rare that you needn't worry yourself about it. The nonsense "hypoglycemia" diagnosis claimed by many is poop ...Read more
In regards to metabolism, what similarities are there between diabetes mellitus and prolonged starvation?
Ketone Production: The core similarity between the two is ketone production due to lack of nutrients in the tissues. The mechanism of lack of nutrients for the diabetes state being lack of sufficient insulin ( or resistance to insulin in the case of type two) to move glucose into the cells to be used for metabolism. At this point fat is burned for "fuel" so to speak. ...Read more
Massive differences: Neuropathy is nerve damage.It often causes unpredictable pain or symptoms like numbness, weird sensations (paresthesias), hyperalgesia (very severe pain) or allodynia (pain from normally non-painful stimuli).Angiopathy is disease of the blood vessels that can cause leakage, blockage, or breakage of vessels.Hyperglycemia means "blood sugar" as in diabetes.It can lead to the other 2 problems. ...Read more
Blood Sugar: Pre-diabetes is defined as elevated blood sugars above normal but below the threshold for diagnosing as true diabetes. Some ranges place pre-diabetes as fasting blood sugars between 100-126. The american diabetes association reports that approximately 11% of pre-diabetics develop diabetes over the next 3 years and most will by approximately 10 years. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Insulin and acidosis: Hi. DKA is an insulin deficient state that contrary to lay bias, occurs in both type 1's AND type 2's. The nonketotic hyperosmolar, hyperglycemic state is a condition that occurs in type 2's; they have enough insulin to prevent ketoacidosis but not enough to prevent profound hyperglycemia and hyperosmolarity. It takes FAR LESS insulin to prevent ketoacidosis than it does to prevent hyperglycemia. ...Read more
What medications for peripheral neuropathy are safest for someone with reduced kidney function (gfr = 38, all other kidney tests are normal)?
20-40%: About 40% of type 1 diabetes patients with kidney disease will develop kidney failure within 20 years without strict blood pressure and glucose control. About 20% of type 2 diabetes patients with kidney disease will develop kidney failure within 20 years, but blood pressure control has seemed to be less effective in completely stopping progression in these patients. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
2nd HTN Vs Essential: Secondary hypertension is secondary to a know cause. There are hundreds. The cause of essential hypertension is unknown.There are hundreds of hypothesis as to what it is due to tho. Some facts: runs in families, tends to be sensititive to diet salt intake, the higher the BP the shorter time you live and the greater the % of life you spend with heart disease, stroke, renal failure etc. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Definitely: Diabetes is the number cause of renal fialure by far. So controlling your diabetes would mean avoiding renal failure. Individuals with chronic renal failure tend to have no generalized symptoms. However as the renal failure progresses, a person can feel sluggish, fatigue, nause, vomiting and lose of appetite. ...Read more
