  • Could I be getting diabetes?

    I am an 18 yr old guy and I'm 6'2, weighing in at 131 lbs. Lately, I have been very drowsy for pretty much no reason. I get 7-8 hrs of sleep nightly.

    I am an 18 yr old guy and I'm 6'2, weighing in at 131 lbs. Lately, I have been very drowsy for pretty much no reason. I get 7-8 hrs of sleep nightly. I do intake a lot of sugar but I work out daily. As you can see from my weight, I am far from fat. Besides the drowsiness, I get irritable when I don't have sugar and sometimes I feel lightheaded when I stand up or walk around. I am actually lightheaded right now as I type this. Could these be early signs of diabetes? Thanks for your help!

  • I just had iced lemon pound cake at Starbucks and it contains 100mg of cholesterol with 42 gram sugar is this bad?

    Best answer: There's no advice needed for your blood sugar (glucose) level, my friend, as that is well within the 'normal' range. The advice about eating junk food is not to do it too often. If you do, you are more likely to pile on excess weight which is MORE LIKELY to cause you to develop insulin resistance and... show more

    The advice about eating junk food is not to do it too often. If you do, you are more likely to pile on excess weight which is MORE LIKELY to cause you to develop insulin resistance and go on to develop type 2 diabetes. This, however, is NOT a foregone conclusion.

  • Does my blood glucose indicate diabetes?

    I’m starting my weight loss journey so I’ve made an appointment with my docto for a physical and everything.

    I’m starting my weight loss journey so I’ve made an appointment with my docto for a physical and everything. I also bought a blood glucose monitor to check my levels because my dad has type 2 diabetes and has gone into liver failure because of it. In the mornings before eating my blood glucose is reading at an average of 80mg. A couple hours after eating I’m averaging about 110. I did check google to see if these numbers are normal and they look it but I’ve also been eating way less over the last week because I am trying to lose weight so I don’t know if that’s why my numbers are what they are or if a week of eating better would even affect it that much. Thanks in advance!

  • Difference between type 1 and type 2 diabetes?

  • All the symptoms of Diabetes, yet tested negative?

    So for the past month or so, I ve been getting some symptoms of diabetes. Type 2 to be more specific.

    So for the past month or so, I ve been getting some symptoms of diabetes. Type 2 to be more specific. I went and got my glucose levels checked, I had eaten 2 hours before said test so I made sure to specify that, the test came back normal. With a glucose level of 85 mg/dL. But recently I ve been having inconsistent blurred vision, where distant objects appear blurry. This comes and goes, one day it s there, the next it s gone. I live in a rather secluded area, where doctors are a long drive from here, so that explains why I m here before going to the doc. In short, what s wrong with me. If it adds anything, I ve been asthmatic all my life, and use a ventolin inhaler about 20 times a day roughly. On top of that, to add to the pile of stupid decisions I ve been making recently, I started smoking this February, easing down on it now and trying to quit. P.s not sure if this is the right place to ask

    I am going to the doctor in couple days for a check up. For the past couple weeks my wrist have been swelling up every morning but I haven’t really thought anything of it, but here recently I have been getting really sick and shaky and feeling like I’m about to pass out. I drink so much water almost 2 gallons a day and I pee atleast 12 times a day minimum. My coworkers always notice me going to the bathroom. I feel hungry even though I have already ate and I feel like I have a bottomless stomach. I also feel tired all the time but I got to be around 8 everyday and wake up at 5. My mother’s father has diabetes. I’m only 19 though. Last week I got my blood pressure done and it was okay

  • Will frequent urination and drinking alone be enough to prevent the complications of diabetes?

    Best answer: No, my friend. The frequent urination is indicating that your diabetes is not well controlled. This means that your blood sugar (glucose) levels are higher than the normal range. Your kidneys are working overtime in a deliberate attempt to get rid of that excess sugar. All the time your blood sugar levels... show more
    Best answer: No, my friend. The frequent urination is indicating that your diabetes is not well controlled. This means that your blood sugar (glucose) levels are higher than the normal range. Your kidneys are working overtime in a deliberate attempt to get rid of that excess sugar.

    All the time your blood sugar levels are above the normal range, damage is slowly being caused to your organs, blood vessels, and nerves, which is what leads to the diabetes-related complications to which you refer.

  • Why does insulin have to be injected?

    Best answer: It can't be given by mouth as a pill, because as a peptide, it would be digested and destroyed in the GI tract, just like any other protein. The only other "painless" route I can think of would be to aerosolize it so it could be administered into the lungs by inhaler. I don't know if that's... show more
    Best answer: It can't be given by mouth as a pill, because as a peptide, it would be digested and destroyed in the GI tract, just like any other protein. The only other "painless" route I can think of would be to aerosolize it so it could be administered into the lungs by inhaler. I don't know if that's been tried, but the problem there is how do you get it from the alveoli (air sacs) into the blood--proteins do not readily diffuse across the endothelium separating the alveoli from capillaries, and there is no specific transport mechanism for it to get across. In fact, I imagine any insulin in the alveoli would likely get gobbled up by alveolar macrophages which are always hanging out in there, patrolling around looking for stuff to gobble.

    There is ongoing research on pancreatic islet transplantation, so that someone could be given functional insulin-secreting cells, and that has met with limited success--they don't have all the bugs ironed out yet, so for the moment it's not practical for routine therapeutic use in all patients.

    So, at least for now, we're stuck with the needle.

  • Sugar level 158, do I have diabetes ?

    I took an at home sugar test after drinking soda and it came out to be 158. Does this mean I have diabetes? I ate pretty bad throughout the day.

  • What does it mean if I'm likely to get muscle cramps if I drink soft drinks?

    Best answer: Most people think the problem is either a potassium or a magnesium shortage. They never consider salt because of the negative connotations of salt. But it's the sodium in salt that controls muscle contractions.

    Doctors routinely advise their patients to avoid salt due to the misconception that salt causes high blood pressure. The claim that people get too much salt from processed foods is also a misconception. Salt's importance in the body follows only that of oxygen and water.

    Adults lose around 2 quarts of water per day through various body function such as breathing, kidney function, perspiration and waste removal. This water doesn't get sufficiently replaced. Making things worse is that people substitute water with other beverages - like soft drinks. These water substitutes have a diuretic effect that increases the water shortage.

    And with every drop of water that leaves the body, so does salt.
