I m reallu sorry Jian for what has happened to your bro. We just have to help yoiu in some money to buy it out and sustain your brother. I guess if he needs to take the insulin everyday tghourgh out life then you guys need lot of money. Take the help of Medicaid which might help you . All the best.

My father is 86 years old and was treated for HT with Diabettes mellitus. He has also got slip disc and used to wear belt as support for walking. Slip disc was detected more than 15 years back and Neuro Surgeon in Mumbai decided not for surgery. In Nov-13 he fell down from chair while writing. He was unconscious for 1-2 minutes coupled with passage of stool. On undergoing MRI the Impression revealed Age related Atrophy with old Ischemic changes. Study showed CSF and VR spaces prominent. Multiple T2 and flair hyperintensities are seen in bilaterial periventrcular white matter pons and left thalami S/O old ischeamic changes. Venticular system is prominent with perventicular hyperintensities. Ni midline shift seen. Cerebellum appears normal in signal intensity. Fourth ventricle is normal. The effect of the fall was that he stopped walking and there was loss of strength in the legs due to which he was not able to stand up on his own. Now (in April-14) after 3 weeks of physiothereaphy and medicines that include Clacix, Tab Attorva (10) & Tab Strocit 500 - 1 BID coupled with Injection Vitrofol - he has been able to move on the three leg support system. Kindly advise any other treatment for him to improve this situation as he quite often talks all irrelevant things and also gets uncontrolled angry time and again. He is also adminstered Tab Olanzapine 5 mg daily.

I have friend who has hep C and diabetes 2. He was in the hospital for dehydration and heat exhaustion. They hydrated him and he responded quite well. All his vitals were good. They put him on an IV drip with ativan and hydrocone, something for gastric acid and insulin. He has never had insulin before. But he started to shiver and tremble. He was on this drip for two days. He cannot function very well now. It is hard for him to control his elimination functions and he tremble quite a bit. I feel that the hydrocodone affect him very bad it was 5/500 because of the tylenol in it. . Before he dehydrated, he had a panel done and he was stable in all areas. His liver enzymes were elevated a little; but he was basically stable. What can he take to help recover?

Hi, I am taking Duromine 40mg, and my urine is quite dark and odorous all day. I am drinking about 2 litres of water per day. I am not diabetic, but I took my BSL yesterday about 5hrs after lunch and it was 6.9. Is this a side effect, or should I investigate further - maybe insulin resistance? (had BSL done about a year ago and was perfect according to GP) thanks
