High Sugar Health Feed

Hi. I'm a 37 years old female. I began having high blood sugar in dec 2019. Am taking metformin, losartan, and famotidine. Every morning i'm experiencing stomach cramps with very foul, yellow diarreah. Also extreme thirst. I'm drinking 2-3 gal of water per day & at least 3 qts just overnight. My blood sugars are in a normal range, but I am still thirsty. Also have not menstruated for 63 days. I've done multiple pregnancy tests. All negative. I'm 5'10" tall. Weigh 220. I eat a healthy diet, lots of veggies, protein, low carb, nearly zero sugar. Seldom eat out, no alcohol or cigarettes. Maybe one diet soda a week. I have always been healthy so i'm really struggling now to find answers & my doctor seems at a loss.

These are symptoms of irritable bowl. Metformin may cause these symptoms. I would recommend to reduce dose of metformin to half of what you are taking. Do not take soda based drinks as it worsens irritable bowl. Try to reduce and gradually stop metformin by following strict diet and exercise. Also I would recommend you to check thyroid tests. Also try to avoid wheat/ maida completely for one month from your diet. This may help you. If still you find problems, please consult some other doctor.

For those who are addicted to sugar, getting off it leads to intense cravings and withdrawal symptoms.

4.  Despite the negative consequences that affect your health and cause social problems, you continue eating or overeating certain foods
5.  You try to eliminate any negative emotion by consuming the foods you crave and experience pleasure.

Gestational Diabetes - 7 Must Know Things About It!

Gestational diabetes is a kind of diabetes that happens during pregnancy. Diabetes is referred to a condition where your blood glucose or blood sugar is very high. Although, glucose is good as it used by your body for energy, but excessive glucose in your blood can be harmful for both you and your child.

Gestational diabetes is mostly diagnosed in the later stages of pregnancy. If gestational diabetes is diagnosed in the early stages of pregnancy, then it is quite possible that you may have had diabetes before you became pregnant. Treating gestational diabetes can help both you and your baby stay fit and healthy. You can protect both, yourself and your baby by controlling your blood glucose levels.

Here are 7 things that you need to know about Gestational diabetes:

  1. Every three to eight out of 100 ladies tend to develop diabetes during pregnancy, a condition known as gestational diabetes. Fortunately, it can be dealt with and even kept away by maintaining healthy lifestyle choices. Eating leafy foods and avoiding sugar-rich things, is a vital step for both control and counteractive action. Exercise, after consulting your doctor can guarantee that you have a healthy pregnancy.
  2. In diabetes, when your body's glucose or sugar levels get so high that the carbohydrates and sugars cannot be converted into energy, the excess starts accumulating in your body. This additional glucose can harm the vessels in your kidneys and all through your body, particularly in organs like eyes.
  3. Two or three factors might cause danger for creating gestational diabetes, both inside and outside of your control. If you are overweight before you get pregnant or while you are pregnant or your family history shows that you are hereditarily inclined to the sickness, you will probably build up the condition.
  4. One will have to stay on the right path as far as medication and insulin goes. Your specialist may prescribe that you require diabetic pills or insulin to help you control your glucose levels.
  5. Your weight can bring about complexities during the delivery in case of gestational diabetes. So it is best to keep your weight in check in order to have a smooth sailing pregnancy and delivery.
  6. Gestational diabetes can likewise put ladies at risk of contracting preeclampsia, which can bring about a number of side effects and complexities. Side effects brought on may start from swollen feet, legs, fingers, and hands to hypertension and even seizures or strokes.
  7. Apart from the risks of having gestational diabetes during your pregnancy, it might affect the child later on. Your baby may have a higher danger of obesityas it develops, both in the teenage years and youth. Youngsters who are overweight may suffer from type 2 Diabetes in the long run.
