I use10 machines and use a rowing machine, and walk on the treadmill. I do take Synthroid for Hasimoto's, Femara fro breast cancer treatment( Post treatment), Singular for allergies and Symbicort for Chronic Bronchitis and Medcor to lower my cholesterol, it's about 150. Thanks for your help!

Brief Answer:
hi there

Detailed Answer:
Dear madam thank you for providing the information needed.

i am very happy to see that you are going to gym and very active.

After analysing your medical history i am able to make out that you are slightly over weight and your doctor also diagnosed as pre diabetes.

Pre-diabetes means that the body is already having trouble getting your blood sugar numbers down to a healthy range, but it hasn't yet reached a level considered diabetic. It also means you have the power to take important steps that can help you avoid diabetes.

The main reason for falling of blood sugar might be due to mismatch of glucose absorption and first phase insulin release.

During very early stage of pre diabetes,After taking food the signal from our stomach will reach pancreas in a delayed time.usually in a healthy individual the release of insulin and glucose absorption will be synchronized.
Due to loss of this synchronization and delayed release of insulin the sugar will drop more than expected.
To this mechanism insulin resistance also will contribute a little.This mechanism is called as Reactive hypo glycemia

i am very happy to say that you are already adopted active lifestyle by going to gym regularly.This kind of active lifestyle will keep diabetes away from you.
please follow a balanced diet pattern.
Have a diabetes free and healthy life
Regards

hi my problems are.. I developed bronchitis 20 days ago where cough started coming out through mouth through constant weezing that time i finished 7 days course of amoxylin based antibiotics. after that my problem continued and also started through my nose as constant watery flowing nose that time all my forhead and surrounding area was paining. i constantly have to remove this cough through nose. my doc said not to give other antibiotic and treated as viral and gave my bronchipe , vibrocil, and other medicine to stop flowing nose. but it didn t help and after 3 days things got more worse and i developed fever. all my blood, mucous and x ray reports were normal prior to that. i controlled fever using supposatory and he prescribed me Avalox. Now i finshed 4 tablets and 3 more to go. compare to before things are improving but not completely cured as still I have flames coming out of my nose, but no fever since 4 days and also i have occasional wheezing as i m still removing cough through throat. through nose I have removed lot of cough since yesterday. I dont have any pain in the forehead anymore.just my nose flowing has not stopped completely.what should I do? I still have 3 more Avalox balance.as I applied lot of pressure to remove cough my leftside of nose had little bleeding today.....Thanx

Hi my name is Doreen O Toole my son Ryan is in LIJ Hospital in New Hyde Park, N.Y. He has been sick for two and a half years and has been on Prednisone for his breathing problems which just came on suddenly after a bout with bronchitis an was prescribed a Z pak. He has gotten progressively worse and is now on many drugs, including antibiotic s for months at a time by his pulmonologist, and many inhalers and nebulizers. He has been taking between 40 to 80 mg od prednisone at various time and has been hospitalized with high does of steroids. This time the steroids are not helping, and his feeling is different this time. His oxygen is in the 90 s but if he moves in bed his breathing is very labored. He has had 8 fractured vertebras from the steroids and many broken ribs. He has the moon face and gained about 50 lbs. from the steroids. He has gastro reflux from being on these drugs and was prescribed dexelant. My concern is this time he has pressure on his chest and feels like his stomach is so pushed out and distended. I feel he should be tested for candida in his intestinal tract which could be making him feel this way. I know that the over abusive of the steroids and antibiotics can cause this, and he might have to be treated an antifungal drug and the foods he eat can cause the bloating. Every time I mention this to a Dr. they ignore. What I was wondering is if you know of a Dr. on LI affiliated with LIJ while he is in there, who is experienced in candida and the treatment. Just to rule it out. He is being injected every 6 hrs with the steroids 40mg. but he feels his airways are not opening up this time. He actually feels worse since he went to the ER two days ago. I had a severe case 14 years ago, in my blood stream. So I have research a lot about it. Please if you can, I would appreciate it, I know that infectious disease Drs. might help but they have to recommended by a Dr. to see one.

she is being seen in the clinic 6 WEEKS DRY HACKINHG COUGH AFTER RECOVERING FROM BRONCHITIS THIS WINTER. THE COUGH IS associated with shortness of breath. In the past, she has experienced coughing spells after running a 5 mile race. she has a recurrent low grade fever that seems to be present year round as well as areas of dry irritated skin on her knees and elbows. Physical exam results reveal BP 110/60, P 60, RR 18. She has no tenderness over her sinuses, no cervical lymphadenopathy, and no bulging of her tympanic membrane. Lungs are clear to auscultation bilaterally. further assessment reveals that nasal mucousa is pale and boggy. My questions are : 1. what is the MOST likely cause/diagnosis for this patient s current presentation, and why is it the cause, 2. what parts of the medical history lead to this conclusion. What diagnostic test could be utilized to help verify the proposed diagnosis. 3. What are the revelent laboratory or diagnostic tests that is expected the provider to order specific to THIS client s presentation and the likely underlying etiology. What is the relationship of the test to This clien s clinical presentation.
