Does a full blood count detect diabetes type 2 or diabetes type 1? Is type 2 an autoimmune disease?
No: But a fasting blood glucose or Hgb a1c test would show diabetes. It does not distinguish between the two types of diabetes however. Type 1 is often considered an autoimmune disorder but type 2 more a lifestyle issue- too much fat not enough exercise. Type 1 usually requires insulin and type 2 only on occasions (may reverse to normal with weight loss). ...Read more

Can low thyroid mask symptoms of high blood pressure caused by kidney disease? Is blood pressure of 170/150 a medical emergency?
BP of 170/150: Your blood pressure is significantly elevated and is, therefore, poorly controlled. Your hypothyroidism is not masking it. As a young woman, you need to speak to your physician (P) about either increasing your BP meds, from one to more agents and considering the fact that you have secondary hypertension (SH) and working up for that possibility. See you P for more help, as your P knows you best. ...Read more
Had some blood work done I am symptomatic. B12 was high 970. Can this be caused from food or vit? Other abnormal glucose 140 MPV 11.5 h/s ratio 0.82.

Having said that, if your glucose was fasting, it is abnormal, otherwise all other tests may be in the normal range. If glucose was not fasting, that may be normal too. What are your symptoms? It would be prudent to discuss it with your doctor. ...Read more

Not so simple: Your medical doctor or endocrinologist can answer best, but you are best of concentrating on your hg a1c level which indicates what your sugar has been like in previous 90 days. The definitions can change but generally a hg a1c o <6.5% in a diabetic is considered good. Aim for a blood sugar level of less than 125 for early morning fasting glucose. Just ask your pmd, for a tailored result for you. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Difference: The symptoms are not the issue but the cause is . Type 1 is a lack of insulin. You get ill right away with symptoms of increased appetite, thirst, urination and weight loss. You need Insulin to be replaced. Type 2 is a state of Insulin resistance. These symptoms take much longer to present . Insulin is present but the tissues do not respond as well. This can be handled with oral medication ...Read more
63 yr old male. Just diagnosed with diabetic peripheral neuropathy. Can this lead to circulation problems. A1c is 7. Blood sugar levels are in range.
Can lead to PROBLEMS: I am unclear on what you mean with the term "circulation problems." are you referring to blockage of the cirulation by blood clots, atherosclerosis? Diabetes is often said to be a "small vessel type of disease process." meaning that infarcts and strokes occur in limited parts of the brain or heart. Truth though is diabetes affects large vessel as well...Meaning that clots can form and travel. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

It depends.....: It depends on the weight, beta-cell function, and of course, genetics. I have had patients lose a ton of weight and come off Insulin and a lot of diabetic meds.

Go see your doctor and find out. ...Read more
