Confused.Pre op bld.111glucose fasting. One dr, says don't worry, other says pre diabetes.Hiv+19yrs.Tcell800, viral alwys undect.Should i worry about gluc?

Need more: 111 fasting is in the prediabetes range but can't make the diagnosis on one number. See your doctor for another fasting sugar draw or a test called hemoglobin a1c. If it's between 5.7-6.4 and fasting sugar 100-125, then you have prediabetes. ...Read more

I'm a type 1 diabetic have been for 6 years I take novorapid & lantus, (insulin glargine) I want to lose weight?

Supervision: Type 1 diabetics that need to lose weight need to be in a supervised medical weight loss program. Your Insulin levels will need to be adjusted with calorie restriction, exercise, etc. Keep a food journal, try my fit plan app to help track calories, exercise and then speak with your physician who can provide more guidance on the Insulin levels, blood pressure and lab work. ...Read more

Hba1c=6,6% diagnosis diabetes. metformine for 6m hba1c=6,2%.So I tested glycemia every 2 h for 2days,never hyperglycaemia:healing or wrong diagnosis?

Hba1c=6,6% diagnosis diabetes. metformine for 6m hba1c=6,2%.So I tested glycemia every 2 h for 2days,never hyperglycaemia:healing or wrong diagnosis?

Several points.: Glycemia test while on diabetic medication isnt entirely valid. The AiC of 6.6% with treatment makes it very UNlikely to NOT be a diabetic (its very high for normal; pretty good for diabetic WITH TREATMENT). At really good levels, getting slightly better and moving into the category of not diabetic , impaired glycemic control occurs, but I think diabetic is more accurate. ...Read more

Prediabetes: Some prediabetic patients have impaired fasting blood sugar but not impaired glucose tolerance. Your pancreas secretes enough Insulin when you take in foods so that your postprandial blood sugars are not abnormally high. This may change in time but you can delay the impairment with good diet and weight control. ...Read more

Mild or borderline: underactive thyroid. Your doctor can prescribe you synthryoid pill to raise your free t4 up to 10 from 1.03. Your fatigue and tiredness may go away hopefully after that. Other values are not that bad tsh may be little elevated according to some labs. Ft3 is little high. Insulin and blood sugar ok. So, get the prescription for synthyroid pill from your doctor and start taking. ...Read more

Diabetes: I am not sure what kind of information you would like to obtain based on the info provided. If you are concerned over the fact your diabetes may not be well controlled, the best measurement to assess it would be a1c - 3 month sugar test that gives you an idea of how well your diabetes is controlled. Normal in most cases is less than 7.0. If that's not been done, talk to your doc. ...Read more

Hi, is that true pre-diabet don't have symptoms? Why my type 2 pre-diabetes(fasting glucose91 mg/dl, hba1c5.7%) have diabetes type 2 symptoms? Thank you

Hi, is that true pre-diabet don't have symptoms? Why my type 2 pre-diabetes(fasting glucose91 mg/dl, hba1c5.7%) have diabetes type 2 symptoms? Thank you

Symptoms?: You did not say your symptoms. Diabetes type 2 mostly is the lack of adequate response of cells or tissues to put the sugar inside the cells (by insulin) and use it for energy. So you can surmise the symptoms of that. Prediabetes is at the border, hgba1c not at 6.5. Most symptoms are actually when sugar is low. ...Read more

My creatinine is1.3 (idms)but i don't have high BP and diabetics.It seems that i'm in stage 2 of ckd.How long will it take to reach esrd?

Time to ESRD: It is impossible to accurately predict how long it will take you to get to esrd at this time. How do you know you have ckd stage 2? Did you have a 24 hour urine collection for creatinine clearance? You have no risk factors for ckd, at present. See a physician or a nephrologist for more information. I would also stop smoking, a smoking is something that cannot possibly improve your health. ...Read more

What is love?

A small word: with a universe of meanings. "In love" is an obsessive infatuation. It feels great but it's overrated as being 'true love.' Mature love is different. The object of love is priceless, greater than your most valuable possession. But you don't cling or control- you want the beloved to have the best, even if it costs you. The great teachers agree: Love yourself and love the other just as much. ...Read more
