If your mom is having diabetes, then there are very hight chances that you too will have it. Get it checked since you are a high risk case. It wil help you to confirm/rule it out and in case it does gets confirmed, then you will need to start medications . Start dping diet control anyways..

Good morning doctor. I am a 55 year old female with type 2 diabetes and a family history of cholesterol. Several statins were described to me before. I was on Aspavor for some time but I believe that gave me chest pain. My doctor changed the medicine to Crestor and the condition improved. Because my medical fund does not cover rosovastatin we opt for a generic vusor which was only recently available. Within about a week I was feeling the chest pain. It happens some in the morning and also during the night when I wake up (not every morning). I stopped the vusor for the last three weeks to a month and the chest pain is still there. Do you think I should start taking the Crestor again to see if it goes away, or can it be something else. The active ingredient in Crestor and Vusor is the same?? rosovastatin!! I would appreciate your opinion. Ronell

I was told today that I didn’t pass my 3 hour glucose test. I believe the doctor called it gastational diabetic and told he he made me appointment with a specialist November 14. But I’m not understanding what that is and how I got it since I’m not taking no medicine other than prenatal gummies and it don’t run in my family on either side

Hi, I have Addison s disease and type 1 diabetes. I feel like I m getting a UTI. My blood sugar levels keep creeping up (in the 150s or higher, closer to 200, rather than my normal in high 90s or low 100s). Which comes first? The UTI infection, or the blood sugar going up? In other words, does the diabetes cause me to have more infections, or do the infections cause my blood sugar to go up?

We have consulted a doctor and she has prescribed Tab Duphaston (10 mg) twice daily. Could you advise us of its purpose and if it has any side effects in long-term. We would really appreciate your advice on this.
