My legs and feet will randomly turn bright red and tingle and itch. Is this a sign of diabetes? I have almost all the symptoms. Non stop thirst, always sleepy, urinating all the time, hungry a lot even though I just ate, and like I said itchy red legs and feet. I ve been tested one but it said I didn t have it. Should I get tested again? Please get back to me.

I went to visit and take care of my girlfriend because she had Gastroenteritis from an ameba, after a few days I started getting diarreah at the beginning, headache, cold feet, night sweats, thirst, frequent urination and constant hunger. When I went to my physician they found I had high blood sugar of 111 while fasting and has sent me to check my glucose. Is it diabetes or am I affected by the ameba that can cause erratic metabolism?

My father s pancreas has shut down, and he was told that especially with his diabetes, that his kidneys are soon to follow. I was looking online the other day and found some sort of implant that can be put in now, that has helped 50% of those who tried it, from developing full kidney failure, but now I can not find the name of the implant so that we can talk to his doctor about it. Can anyone tell me the name of this? It was like 3 or 4 letters long...

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.
