there is variation in the blood glucose levels which are not clear to label you has diabetic. so the doctors will put you to stress and see how you react, meaning any normal person been given a higher dose of glucose to consume he will be capable enough to control his the blood glucose levels. if the person cannot be able to tolerate the excess load under test condition they will call that person a potential candiate and will requre the treatment in near future.

My son s father was taken to the ER on July 3rd he was told his blood sugar dropped dangerously low. Before you knew it they were inserting a breathing tube and he is now on life support. He has some eye movement, my question is there a chance he can recover from this? I forgot to mention through all this his heart stop beating, but they were able to get his heat pumping again.

Hello, about 13 days ago I drank alot of alcochol and I have been dizzy with a slight headache since then. I have been to the doctor he said it is probably liver intoxication, that it will go away, that was a week ago. I did a bunch of blood tests everything seems normal accept my hep B anti hps was 93. This happened about 2 months ago as well, the doc gave me, b6 dramin (portuguese), which I took for a week and the dizzyness went away. Any clue what it could be? Is this normal because of alcohol consumption? I have drank alot in the past years, never had this happen before.
