I will be looking into your question and guiding you through the process. Please write your question below.

I would just like to inquire if I am diabetic type 1/2 or pre- diabetic?

Good day to all! I am 22 years old, male and My family have history of Diabetes on the paternal side. 1 year ago I had my FBS and the result was 111mg/dL. I then decided to change my sedentary lifestyle. I exercise 6 to 7 days a week and limit my carbohydrate intake, as well. From 78 kilos (5 months ago) I am now down to 66 kilos. I then checked my FBS 1 month ago and the result was 90mg/dL. I would just like to inquire if I am diabetic type 1/2 or pre- diabetic? Thank you very much!

This is what FDA is all about. Took 4 years to reach this stage (where GSK must have made millions selling those crap):
General & Family Physician Dr. Anand Babu M's  Response

As your parent is diabetic, you are in risk category, of becoming a diabetic in middle age.. at present the FBS values are with in normal, you are not a diabetes patient.

Before you are told a battery of different tests one after another just to keep you busy forever get following done if you yourself suspect anything:

(1) FBS

(2) PPBS

(3) C-Peptide

(4) GAD

(5) OGTT

(6) ESR

(7) C reative protien

(8) Lipid Profile

(9) CBC

(10) HBA1C

maybe tests for pancreas islets working etc etc.

Then go to a doctor with these reports. Without these tests doctors today are clueless on everything. Perhaps add urine tests, stool tests also to above list. Perhaps something to test your liver and kidneys too.

Since you are susceptible, ban all junk food, engineered oils and fats, coke, pepsi, miranda crap (all processed craps which pump in fructose in your body) and move towards alkaline diet.

DUMP Flouride toothpaste that you may have been using all these years. It's POISON.

To decide diabetes fasting blood sugar is not enough,it may not give any clue about diabetes.
You go for post partum blood sugar (PPBS),if it is above 180 then it is confirmed that you are diabetic.
To be very sure you may go for G.T.T. or AG1c which gives average three months glucose level.

Hello. My husband is in post pancreatitis stage and is home leading a normal life . The cause of this illness remains a mystery to the doctors that attended to him as he does not drink alcohol and gall stones were also ruled out. My question is, what kind of foods shld he be eating? I don t want to know about diets that help lose your belly, I want to know about nutrition. What my husband does is if he gets an ache and upset tummy, he reviews what he ate over the last few meals and assumes a certain food caused and just says he wont eat it again, and this goes on til the next tummy ache. He does still take creon and he is not a diabetic at this stage based on tests that have been done. We are based in Cairns Aussie. Any advice or education on these issues wld be most appreciated. Regards Ruth Young

I had a baby 18 months ago and previous to that suffered from Hyperthyroid due to a virus. I was suffering from significant tachycardia and excessive sweating at that time. RAI Uptake was done etc, Virus resolved rendering my thyroid now Hypoactive for the last 4 years. I am currently taking Synthroid 150mcg. I have been a runner my entire life however first trimester complications caused that to cease. I am not just getting back into it and training for a half marathon. I have noted that my heart rate even after 5 minutes of running is around 186 bpm. I went to my GP to have my TSH and T4 checked to be sure I wasn t over medicated. Everything was normal. His response to this high BPM was to add a Beta-blocker. I have leary of taking it because I have read it will greatly affect my performance while running. I also get a quivering type feeling here and there through out the day in my heart. I get extremely flush almost purple in my face when running. I m wondering if there could something significantly more wrong than the thyroid affect as my GP has mentioned. I asked for a stress test and he said I didn t need one. I am 34 years old, slightly overweight still from post-partum. no other medical conditions, no history of any previous medical conditions other than Gestational Induced Hypertension and ecclampsia which clearly has resolved and Gestational Diabetes which also resolved.
