My Sugar 267 Am I In Danger
5.9% on my A1c test. Can i still have sugar in in moderation in my diet. I am 51year old male. And i just found out im prediabetic.
HOw much: What is moderation to each person may vary. If you are prediabetic, having sugar in your diet can lead you down the road to diabetes. I do not recommend processed sugar or refined foods. The best treatment are complex carbohydrates, high fiber foods and eliminating sugar containing foods. Its the best alternative to losing an eye, a kidney or having a heart attack due to diabetes. ...Read more
Y i have a sweet taste in my mouth? I am prediabetic my fasting glucose level was 109 yesterday 111 today, I don't eat sugar, i take januvia (sitagliptin)
Lifestyle...: If you have not in the last 6 months had an oral glucose tolerance test (oGTT) and a Hemoglobin A1c (Hg A1c) I recommend that you have them done. Then consider lifestyle changes, consult with a Nutritionist, and perhaps a Functional Medicine specialist. Type 2 diabetes is often a result of lifestyle and may be corrected without medication.

I am 27 years old.Now it is found that 185 mg sugar in 1 dl of my blood.Can i permanently relive from diabetes?
Yes: Yes, definitely. Pregnancy is a time when different cravings can come into play. In a way, it can be fun to see how your body is changing, right? I love chocolate, but i couldn't stand it in pregnancy, isn't that strange? So long as you avoid raw seafood, and watch the salt, you should be fine. May want to avoid msg if possible too. Enjoy! ...Read more
How do I lower my crp? It is currently 0.16 (above average risk). I am a healthy young male in my late 20s
Why bother?: You don't want to chase a lab but to treat the patient. I am not sure why you had it done to begin with. If you have no symptoms and/or other abnormalities (high cholesterol, abnormal ecg) and other risk factors (family history), smoking, then abnormal CRP should not be a concern. If you have many risk factors and symptoms, your physician should lay out a prevention program for you. ...Read moreSee 4 more doctor answers

Probably not: It depends on your other risk factors but you are doing great with your lifestyle choices. You can't avoid genetics but if you can keep your weight normal, you probably will not get diabetes. The main thing is to catch it early so make sure you see your pcp for regular check ups. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Hello Sir, I had done lasik in india and after 3 monts later i did my enhancement also. But after 5 years i am facing issue like i gained power -1.5.
Regression: The technical term for regaining some of the power that the LASIK corrected is regression. LASIK stability depends upon the biology of the person having the procedure - it is not dependent upon the way the procedure was performed. You are one of those with some biological, healing instability. A further correction (enhancement) could be done but I would wait a while to see for further change. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

What are the dangers of eating too much honey at one time? Does honey give you a huge sugar high?
Too much is too bad: Small quantities good for you. Too much of a good thing applies to honey. There is a lot of fructose in honey, so eating too much could lead to weight gain, allergies, acne, diabetes, pancreatic cancer. And honey is slightly acidic, so if you chow down on it regularly, it could erode tooth enamel. The sweetness of honey and sugar is about the same. So the recommended serving size is too. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Could be PAD: Diabetics often have issues with their feet and being on methylcobalamin is good if your mom suffers from a diabetic neuropathy (nerve pain).

This can lead to major amputation! take her to see a vascular surgeon right away! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

If you are: On diabetes medication, it is obviously too low. Otherwise, in the absence of kidney or liver disease, end-state cancer, etc, it was probably an error in the glucose reading.

Yes: Having that much sugar stresses your pancreas, causing it to secrete large amounts of insulin, leading to Insulin resistance and starts you down the road to diabetes.
