With continuous exercise and proper nutrition to treat the daily threats of hypoglycaemia, is this condition curable not just a treatable daily chore?

With continuous exercise and proper nutrition to treat the daily threats of hypoglycaemia, is this condition curable not just a treatable daily chore?

Daily chore..: Sorry to say, but reactive hypoglycemia, which is typically what we experience, is not curable. Proper management includes smaller more frequent meals with as much as 35 grams of fiber for a woman/50 grams of fiber for a man divided evenly amongst the meals, with the intent of smoothening out the release of insulin from the pancreas throughout the day and night. ...Read more

Any help would be welcome. My face and eyes are puffed up and one side of my face is sore and I also have malaise. What could be causing it and what can I do to treat it?

General swelling: And soreness is non specific. But you could have an infection. Do you have a fever? Is there pain in any one spot? Any vision loss?

How can you prevent someone from fainting?

How can you prevent someone from fainting?

Get their attention!: Speak directly, loud and clear, placing yourself in front of them, demand that they look into your eyes! Have them breathe slow and deep while looking at you. You may have to demonstrate this for them; it may help to have a hand or two on their shoulders. The object is to get them grounded in the present moment. One way is to have them mimic exactly what you are doing. Try to keep their eyes open! ...Read more

Severe dry eyes; dry lips and skin; malaise. Should I get a referral to see a rheumatologist (symptoms could be sjogren's?)?

Yes: Your symptoms are consistent with sjogren's. You might also consider seeing an eye md who can measure your tear production. Lastly, there is a new finger stick test for sjogren's which will help make diagnosis much earlier than traditional blood testing called sjo made by nicox. Only a few offices currently offer it at the moment, though. ...Read more

I am feeling a general sense of malaise, achy, quesy?

Could be many things: Symptoms of queasiness, achiness (such as headaches, sore throat, body aches), malaise (general feeling of discomfort), and mild fevers are called "flu-like" symptoms. From a doctor's perspective, these symptoms "could be anything", because so many conditions have these symptoms as early signs.

I am experiencing malaise and I am struggling to focus on work because I feel so sick what should I do?

Malaise: Your symptoms are nonspecific but an early viral infection is likely. Treatment consists of resting, drinking adequate amounts of fluids including flat ginger ale to settle nausea and a light diet. Tylenol helps relieve any aches or pains. If more definite viral symptoms don't evolve and nausea persists, consult your physician. A pregnancy test may then be ordered unless you feel it's unnecessary. ...Read more

I have a slightly enlarged left submandibular lymphnode and malaise for over a week. What could this be? LN harder than right side one

Just dx'd w/ cvid. Doc said levels were below severe. Could abx prior to test have caused faulty results? I heal quite well, but chronic malaise

CVID: For cvid diagnosis, besides low immunoglobulin levels, the ability of the immune system to response to vaccinations is also affected. Plus you have to have recurrent/severe infections and all reasons of losing proteins have to be ruled out like lost of proteins in the urine/gi tract. Infections ; steroid (but not antibiotic) use could lower igg levels so labs should be repeated when you recover. ...Read more

Issues with vertigo/malaise that worsened recently. Oddly when my BP is taken I feel it in the base of my head. The vertigo began there initially.?

Dizziness and neck: Some people have a feeling of dizziness that is related to the junction of the skull and the neck. This is not common however. The clue of feeling something at the base of your head when the BP is taken is not an obvious clue. What about neck injuries? What happens when you move your head? Vertigo should be the sense of movement when you are not moving. Hope that helps. ...Read more
