Pcos Hyperthyroidism Insulin Resistance
Insulin resistance is a state in which a given concentration of insulin produces a less-than-expected lowering of blood sugar. This results from obesity and often causes higher blood sugar levels. The early stage of Insulin resistance, known as impaired fasting glucose (IFG) or prediabetes, is potentially reversible with significant weight loss (at least 7 percent). However, without weight loss, Type 2 Diabetes generally results, often causing severe damage to arteries and ...Read more
Lantus (insulin glargine): I am assuming that your insulin injections have been started not long ago. Injections should not cause weight gain but there is a more important issue. Type 2 diabetes can and should be corrected such that you no longer have diabetes. Insulin injections should not cause weight gain. With that in mind, talk to your doctor about diabetes and also have a dietitian help you with your weight. ...Read more
Absolute deficiency: Insulin resistance is seen in obesity or being overweight is associated with Insulin resistance state . Insulin basically enhance anabolism( versus catabolic hormones ) and utilization of glucose from all the sources ( fat , carbohydrate and , protein). Severe weight loss is an indicator of Insulin deficiency. This Insulin deficiency should be absolute as in type i or Insulin dependent diabetes. ...Read more
Insulin resistance: is a disorder in which the pancreas is making insulin, but the insulin does not work correctly (the body is resistant to the effect of insulin). As a result, the pancreas makes more insulin to compensate, in order to keep the blood sugar normal. This can eventually lead to diabetes, polycystic ovarian syndrome, hypertension, high triglycerides, low HDL cholesterol, and weight gain. ...Read more
Yes.: Inositol is a naturally occurring carbohydrate with 9 stereoisomers. D-chiro inositol(DCI) and Myo-inositol increase the action of insulin in patients with the polycystic ovary syndrome, thereby improving ovulatory function and decreasing serum androgen concentrations, blood pressure, and plasma triglyceride concentrations. Can restore normal menses. http://bit.ly/1Qft6SU ...Read more
No diabetes, normal fasting insulin levels, gaining weight fast, no thyroid issues, but low fasting glucagon levels (25pg/ml), no energy, healthy diet?
My glucose level high in spite of 60 u of lantus (insulin glargine) insulin 60u of novo rapid insulin 2000mg of metformin?
Basal glucose =81 mg/dl but insuline =38 mU/ml (insuline/glucose > 0,3 ). Symptoms of ipoglycemia... How to exclude an insulinoma? Ultrasound?thanks!
Hypoglycemia: To diagnose insulinoma, you need to demonstrate inappropriately high insulin/C-peptide when your glucose is low. A glu of 81 is not low, it is normal. You have symptoms of hypo, but these symptoms are often from something else. Insulinoma is rare. Do not start getting CT/ultrasound etc until you establish the biochemical diagnosis first. An Endocrinologist can help you. ...Read more

Diet, nutrition: When we consume too many high glycemic foods too much Insulin is released into the blood stream. This eventually leads to Insulin resistance, metabolic syndrome and weight gain. The type 2 diabetes epidemic is a direct result of this. Most people do not understand that diet foods and drinks and sugar free products are loaded with artificial sweeteners which are much more of a problem! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

And get your diabetes in control! Good luck! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Insulin 64 after high carbs and glucose 54 & hypokalemia. I'm hypokalemic PP diagnosed but wonder if congenital hyperinsulin can cause low potassium?
Insulin and carbs: Rachel, I wish I could help you but your comments are unclear. What do you mean by "insulin 64" and glucose 54? Have you been told that you have "congenital hyper-insulin"? In that case your doctor would have referred you to a surgeon. If you can, please give me some more information. ...Read more
fasting insulin 76pmol/l
after 75gOral glucose-
1hr-insulin-849pmol/l . 2 hr-864pmol/l
glucose fast 5.4mmol/l
Time to get serious: You have normal glucose tolerance. Your fasting and 2 hr glu is not quite at the level of "impaired". Your insulin levels are on the high side, suggesting insulin resistance. Now is the time to start getting your weight under control, proper diet, and physical activity. Talk to your doctor about your particular situation. ...Read more
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
