I take numerous medicines but none that would cause anything like that. And the only infection that was shown was the gastritis and the doctor told me that that was an infection or inflammation in the stomach lining. The only thing he did was to increase my acid relux medicine. I am to be on a bland diet. Which this whole diet thing is making my sugar go wild. I have been tryiing to stay hydrated. I have even left my coke off so that I could keep this is control.View Thread
Has been quite a while since I put a post on here but thought I would let everyone know that I am doing good. My last A1C was 5.7. I started exercising and really watching what I eat and I do not even have to take pills....for now. The only "real problem" is my arthritis. And the darn thing is in my neck. Seriously, I have been told that one day that I would have to start the insulin shots but as long as I can do what I am doing now, I can keep it under control. Well, going to finish reading on here to check up on everyone. Have a good day everyone, and don't forget to vote!!View Thread
Ok. I need some help. I stuck a splinter in the bottom of my foot. It went straight in and not at an angle. I think I got it out but I don't know for sure. Hubby looked at it and he couldn't see anything. Now the bottom of my foot is really swollen and sore. It is so sore that I can not put pressure on it I don't see anything in it now. But how can I knoow for sure that the splinter isn't in there and why is it swelling so bad? Can anyone give me any suggestions on what to do. There isn't any way to get touch with a doctor today and it is swollen that I am concernedView Thread
Reading this, I actually thought someone could be "cured". However, my doctor told me that you can not be cured but you can get in under control. I exercise and watch my diet. I have my A1C down to 5.6 and keep my sugar under control. I take one pill every other day. I made up my mind that I wasn't going to end up like my sister and I have, so far, kept my promise to myself. It isn't easy but it can be done. I do "treat" myself occassionaly to something that I really want. Even though I keep treats for the grandkids, I know what the outcome will be if I let myself eat them. Instead, I keep fruit and veggies for me to snack. This is what works for me. Take care.View Thread
Dr. Dansinger, Will you please read my discussion on "I am so discouraged" alliej0225 and let me know what I should do. Or just give me a suggestion. I can't get an answer from any health professional here, other than go to the er and that's a joke around here.
Please I need some answers quickly!! I was stung by a hornet on the leg on Wednesday and the swelling was unbearable. I went to the doctor on Thursday and was given a shot of steroid and an antibotic. Well, I was stung again on Friday by another hornet, same leg. And, of course, it started swelling, but not as bad as Wednesday. Friday night I woke up with muscle and joint pain. I called the NurseLink line and talked to a nurse. She told me it could be a delayed reaction to the poison that I would need to talk to my doctor within 24 hours. There isn't any way that you can get in touch with a doctor on the weekend here. So, I have tried to "tough" it out until Monday. But all I want to do is sleep and I feel so bad that it has affected my appetite. I have been eating a little just so it doesn't affect my diabetes. Other than feeling like I have the flu and sleeping, that's the only symptons that I have. Most of the swelling has gone down. The only swelling I have left is on the bottom of my feet. Can anyone please tell me what is going on with my body? Or can anyone tell me what I need to do now? Any help would be so appreciated.View Thread
I don't feel that I am capable of taking care of anyone right now. I am so tired that I can barley put one foot in front of the other one,I will be back on in a while need to talk to someone.;bblView Thread
I did talk to the doctor and he said there was very little protein in my urine. My A1C is 5.9. So I am doing really good. However, hubby's doctor called and we have to be there at 9 this morning. I haven't slept because I am worried about this new development. He said that it looks like hubby can have a stroke at any minute. Talk about stress!!!! Between the chemo that he is taking and now this.....I feel like I am a walking time bomb. I have been trying to take care of all the animals, house work, and hubby. Thank goodn ess for such kind neighbors that mow the yard for me. I don't know what I would do without them. I think that when I have time I will have a nervous breakdown (lmao). Thanks for listening. And thanks for this community that when I need to ask question, vent, or any of the stupid things I say or do that you will listen to me. Thanks everyone.View Thread
It's been a while since I have had the chance to post on here. Hubby is going thru chemo and he isn't doing so well.He has lost so much weight and today they sent us for a mri on his brain. I had to go and have lab work done and they tell me too much protein in my urine. Please someone tell me what this means. I have all this other "stuff" going thru my head that I will hardly have ttime to read this. Please just remember us in your prayers. Thanks for listening.View Thread
