is diabetes type II curable with out medicine? Is it self curing? I know a friend who is diabetic for the last 10 years. he used to take metformin, glyclazide etc. but the blood glucose level was increasing after a short period of decrease. he used to increase the dosage ( certainly as per the advice of physicians), after a small duration again blood glucose was increasing. The FBS boosted to 400. At that time he stopped all medicines. again the FBS increased. when it has reached 455, it stopped going up and slowly it started coming down. now after 1 year without medicine it has come down to 250. is there an explanation for this?

I am a 32 yr old male. I am 6 tall and weigh 237lbs. I do take amlodipine for high blood pressure, have been on it for 3 years. I went in for a Dr. visit to have some blood work done. The results were scary. Overall cholesterol is 274, LDL 214, HDL 41, Triglyceride 94. The Dr. wants to put me on meds asap. My question is can this cholesterol problem be treated without the use of meds or are my levels too high and am I in danger of suffering a heart attack or stroke. I have a 2 year old and I intend to stick around.

The last two days I have been experiencing buzzing in my right ear. This is also the side I have some blockage going on in carotid. Five years ago I had a mild stroke because the left carotid artery was almost completely blocked. I had surgery, and I have no residual effects of the stroke. I have kept an eye on the carotids with ultrasound every year. This ringing in the right ear is not constant, but comes & goes. It is a loud mechanical buzzing noise. Am I right in thinking it is probably due to the carotid blockage, or would you think it could be something more significant that needs further testing? Thank you.
