Brief Answer:
Yes, you can get sugar tested.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

With those symptoms, its good idea to get your sugar levels checked.

A fasting and post meal sugar levels should be checked.In case they turn out high then you can test for HbA1c - this test gives idea about sugar levels raised for 3 months duration.

Hope this answers your query.Regards

Brief Answer:
Yes, after two hours past meal.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

Yes, blood sugar level is to be tested two hours after meal.

For knee I think you should get MRI done to see internal structure injury and effusion.After that treatment can be planned better.

my daughter has recently been diagnosed with idiopathis scoliosis, she has 2 50 degree bends plus a twist in the middle, she seems to have got worse and is not suffering from sharp pains at the base of her skull up into her head, she is scheduled for surgery but we are waiting on mri scan to rule out underlying issues, she has asymmetric tummy, should i be concerned and speak to the surgeon with these pains

doctor1 MD

I recently had an MRI done for leg numbness and pain also very limited movement to lift my right leg, I have an appointment this coming wk with an ortho Dr. shows some bulging and minor tear in L3-4 plus alot of other things. Also what concerns me more is evaluated lesions at the right kidney, which when I was called with the MRI results this was not mentioned. My father had a kidney remove because of cancer , should I be concaened and should I insist on follow up care.

Hello Doctor, My dad 58 is suffering from bone tb in cervical region (C5,C6,C7), he developed weakness in legs and coudnt walk w/o support. Initially he was treated by ortho who put him on 4 drug ATT and performed a minor operation of draining pus but his condition worsened after operation (paraplegic Complete motor and sensory loss in legs, no sense of bladder ) and was refrred to a neurosurgeon. He was operated again and decompression and bone grafting was performed, after one month also his condition did not improve and an MRI was taken again. Doctor said that there is a degeneration in the vertebrae which forms lower part of the graft and the screws were displaced from their position and were causing compression of spinal cord. He was again operated and the graft was removed(by a different doctor). Doctor said that due to multiple operations he has become weak and said that will keep him under observation for sometime and if required operation can be performed after a month. Meanwhile my dad has problem swollowing which was not there after 2 previous operations. He was put on complete bed rest by the previous 2 doctors but this doctor makes him sit for 5 min daily and has also said that will try to make him sit on wheel chair in some days. My question: Is my dad being treated the right way?

Am querying current line of thinking by several consultants. Admitted to hospital May 2011; lumbar puncture showed elevated CSF protein of 1088 mg/L with 228 white cells, 95% lymphocytes. The working diagnosis was viral meningitis, and I was discharged after 2 days aciclovir. Negative for herpes simplex virus 1 and 2. Developed infection in leg early October 2011, followed by painful groin, then ulcers either side of scrotum - non painful, and diagnosed as shingles. Mid October 2011, following tinitus, buzzing , hearing different frequencies, then vertigo, admitted for 2 weeks in ID ward...CSF showed 614 white cells with 90% lymphocytosis. CSF protein raised at 1335 mg/L. Tested for everything under the sun, incl. HIV, syphillis, Lyme disease, Cat scratch fever (leg infection thought to have been through an insect bite). All negative, incl. ANA. Chest x-ray, MRI scan of brain and whole spine also negative. Admitted again 26th December 2011, aciclovir for seven days, now back home feeling well, if a little tired. Current thought is Mollarets meningitis, but more recently, rheumatology dept. thinking Behcets syndrome, as I suffer from mouth ulcers. My contention is this; I have sufferd from mouth ulcers since a teenager taking exams at school. If I have a job interview, I will get mouth ulcers after @ 48 hours. Dentist thinks stress induced, as do I. I have no aching joints and no eye irritation, also, just found out that HLAB51 negative. I am a 42 year old British male and caucasian. I can t help feeling there s a square peg being pushed into a round hole here. What about migraine; the tinitus, buzzing and vertigo? Also, I took a non-steroidal (Ibuprofen) prior to the first two episodes. Bickerstaff s encephalitis sounds just as plausible as Behcets...or am I in denial? I would appreciate any advice, even if it s to simply face the music . Thank you for your time.
