On a 3 hr. gtt, at hour 2 my urine glucose level was 500. The test showed that I have type 2 Diabetes. I have at least a 7 yr. history of neuropathy. In that time Neurontin has been increased to 3600 mg. I also have extreme fatigue, sore joints and muscles, serious cognitive issues (slowing in eeg), my head swims, I have a numb, but still painful feeling on the left side in the middle of my back, and my father died with kidney failure. I have more testing scheduled with a neurologists, but I am growing more concerned the more I read about glucose in the kidneys that i might need to see a nephrologist. I need a professional opinion.

Hello, I am a 59 yr old female with type 2 diabetics. My doctor prescribed Gabapentine for the pain in my feet. I take 2 kinds of insulin,,, 3 units of Humalog before each meal, and 20 units of lantus once a day. I was recently in the hospital for my diabetics. Problems with my kidneys and my heart. I came with in a few hours of dying, that s what they told me anyway. but that has really turned my question.....I am afraid of this Gabapentine. It has some very awful sounding side effects......should I really be worried?

Hi Doc

I am a male, 68yo, widower, Chinese (not from China). I lead an active sex life.....I have sex at least twice a week sometimes with different women (not prostitute). For the last 1 month, 5 out of 10 times that I have sex...I couldn't ejaculate although the sensation of ejaculation were there. I have Type 1 Diabetes..I inject 52mg of insulin everyday plus captoril and simvastatin. I also consume 80mg of Aspirin everyday for the last 20 years.

My question is.....Is there any kind of medication\drug that I can take so that I can ejaculate each time I have sex.

Thank you.
