Hi... The average age  a man lives is between 60 to 80 years. it is difficult to predict the years a person will live.. But I can say that your dad is in the right track by his present life stlye... This will prevent the complications one usually gets due to diabetes at his age..  Wish your dad all the best and he lives for many more years with happiness...:)

my dad is diabetic and we work together and he keeps losing it that badly with me that he had me against a wall the other day and if i was a man he would have head butted me - today he would have thrown tea. he is is 70. i am 42 (im female). there are problems at work and i am taking the firm through a lot of changes but when he has these outbursts it sets me back loads in front of the staff and our business partners- he has told me he f***ing hates me which i is out of character and i know this isnt true, and he gets this snarl on his face where i dont recognise him. he can be the same with my mum. i asked my mum today is he is taking his blood suger levels. he hasnt for ages but his diabetic nurse has actually made him take them 2 or 3 times a day this week as she thinks he needs a higher dose of insulin - which he injects in his stomach . i am not an easy person and under a lot of stress but my dad never used to be like this. i dont recogise him anymore. could this be the diabetes or do you think he has just changed with age?

With consultation of doctors she has switched to huminsulin 30 70. Lily since one month. Now her sugar levels are not in control. Pls advise whether both insulin are of same composition.

hello. i am a 24 yr old female. i have asthma. For the past 6 years i experiance bouts of extreme fatigue, swollen chin and auxillary nodes, diarrhea, muscle pain and weakness, small headaches, gerd, and my skin is always tender to the touch to the point were hugs are painful and also something as small as snapping my fingers hurts. It also seem sthat my tolerance for pain has greatly diminished. Also, i have no to low sex drive and my mentral cycles have always been irregular, ocurring from 2-3 months, where now i have gone 6 months without one, occuring. I have had a million blood tests at the doctors and he can never seem to find anything physically wrong with me other than insulin resistance.

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
