Diabetes: If your hyperthyroidism isn't controlled, it may cause elevated blood sugar. Type 2 adult onset diabetes would be more likely than type 1 as your blood sugars must be borderline because you state diabetes hasn't been definitely diagnosed as of now. Type 1 is usually more dramatic and severe in presentation. Your endocrinologist is best qualified to evaluate and treat you. ...Read more

Confusing question: The standard reporting of blood sugar results are in mg/dl.Your stated values are obviously in some other system because that level is incompatible with alertness/ life. Type 1 DM is due to loss of insulin production capability.It could happen at any age, but rarely does in older adults.When it does, the patient can lose 10 lb/week while eating almost continuously. ...Read more

Is ulcer disease/fatty liver common in ppl who eat fair amount of junk/sugar but are around 9pounds underweight and have no fam history of NASH?

Different diseases: Peptic ulcer disease is usually the result of congenital predisposition as well as lifestyle, irregular meals, smoking, etc. NASH is most commonly encountered in patients with diabetes and based on the eating habits described that will have to be ruled out. I do not see an immediate link between ulcer and NASH. ...Read more

If cancer is a metabolic disease, why are we feeding children w/ DIPG lots of carbs & sugars...limited glucose should be helpful preventing growth?

If cancer is a metabolic disease, why are we feeding children w/ DIPG lots of carbs & sugars...limited glucose should be helpful preventing growth?

Be discerning: Cancer is not a "metabolic disease" as represented on websites like the one you have been reading. It's the result of accumulated genetic mutations. You're not going to "limit glucose" in any case -- anything you eat gets turned into this, as it's the key fuel in your body. I trust you'll have the common sense to recognize when a website is offering complete disinformation -- many cancer sites do. ...Read more

Most : Most people don't have sugar in their urine until their blood sugar is 250mg/dl or more. But some people will have sugar in their urine with normal blood levels of glucose. This is called renal glycosuria. It usually has little clinical significance. If your fasting blood sugar is elevated, you may have diabetes. If a blood glucose is done concurrently with finding sugar in your urine, you can sort out if you are just one of those people who spill sugar into the urine at normal blood glucose levels or if you may be diabetic. This should be checked out soon, especially if you are experiencing excessive thirst or frequent urinination. ...Read more
