Diabetes runs in both sides of my family, especially my mother's. My grandmother and all of her 7 siblings were diabetic. I'm just wondering if anyone has any suggestions as to how I could avoid setting off my gene? Cutting back (or off) sweets is a given, but any other suggestions?
Hi... Diabetes do run in the family.. Since you have a strong family history you needto take all the necessary precautions which apply to a diagnosed diabetes patient.. You need to abide to a strict diet, a diet which is low in carbohydrate and low in fat.. Follow up with regular weight reducing exercises... Check your blood sugars regularly and frequently. Consult a doctor if the sugars are high..
my dad has diabetes and his dad had it so it mite be genetic and im worried i am not a couch potato: i play lacrosse, jog in the mornin, am on the wrestling team and Cross Country but i just like sugar too much!
I am 35 year old and diabetic since 2007 and i wanted to know if there is a opportunity for my brother or my 2 daughters getting diabetic?. If there are high possibility for my daughters to get diabetic what is the precausious way to avoid/control this?
Since 2009 I had my spleen removed from (there was a 6.5 cm cyst on it), I had the tail of my pancreas removed (small cyst, that could have become cancerous). And just last week a quarter size nodule was found on my thyroid (waiting for results from sonogram and blood work). I am curious is there a condition that would make all of this appear that could all be related? I have a new primary care doctor who is looking into everything now, but before each issue has been treated separately. In the past all my blood work was always normal - my spleen was removed in 8/2009 and in 4/2010 when the tail of my pancreas was removed my spleen started growing back.
i had a fundoplycation almost 10 years ago but now am having severe stabbing pains under my left ribs and over into center of my stomach where the ribs meet in the middle. I take PPI s but they dont do anything to help. Is this something I should be concerned about like my pancreas or something?
