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.

I had been taking Diovan for a number of years and insurance company suggested I replace Diovan with the Losartan since it was cheaper. I took 50 mg. of the Losartan yesterday morning. Noticed a tight feeling in chest yesterday afternoon. At the time I went to bed (around 12:30 a.m.) I experienced severe pain in left side of chest, radiating through back and left shoulder. Took two nitro pills and dropped off to sleep. Upon arising this a.m. I again experienced pain in the same area, got a little scared and got very hot. Tried to stay calm, ate some breakfast and felt some better. Also, severe hurting in upper right arm where large muscles join together. I had a heart attack latter part of 2005 and diagnosed several years ago with fibromyalgia. I am 77 years old, active for my age, caring for 88-year-old husband who suffered a stroke six months ago. I hesitate to go to ER this a.m. due to home situation and long wait getting medical attention.

My mother in law will be 88 on the 16th of this month. SHe has been in ECU for 4.5 years. She has had 2 fairly big strokes in the past 10 years. 2 weeks ago she had another small stroke which made her mouth droop even more, her swallowing is not very good. She can only take in thickened fluids. She is in quite a bit of pain, we think from a pressure sore on her heal, she is unable to communicate what hurts. The doctor pulled her off of all her medication for 1 week. (I don t think she is going back on it again) Today they are finally giving her morphone. Is she in so much pain because her organs are shutting down We know she is not going to be here long but approx. how long
