Fasting blood Glucose 6.6 home test ??

A: Hello Samantha61, A fasting glucose level of 6.6 mmol/L (approx. 119 mg/dl) is in the range considered impaired glucose tolerance (sometimes called prediabetes). This is not considered overt diabetes. often an increased level like this correlates to some insulin resistance. This can be induced/exacerbated by many different factors including increased weight and various other hormonal issues. You may want to discuss this with your doctor.

Alzheimer"s symptoms

A: Cindy, what kind of doctor was your step-dad referred to? He should see a neurologist with a dementia specialty or a geriatric psychiatrist with a dementia specialty. Its good that he"s had a Cat scan - at least then they have likely ruled out strokes and tumors. Did they say what they saw on the scan? Any shrinkage? What you are describing could very well be the early stages of Alzheimer"s or it could be a lot of other things.  Alzheimer"s is only diagnosed by ruling out everything else it might be. Confusion and memory problems can stem from small strokes (so small the person may not show other signs of stroke), drug interactions or side effects, thyroid problems, pernicious...


I''m thinking of taking Wellbutrin for my depression?

A: The only way to know for sure if it helps with your depression is to have your doctor prescribe it. I have both depression and anxiety that has run in my family. Different meds work best for different people a d you just have to make adjustments in dosage or meds to did the right one that works for you.

A: Hi, Thank you for your question to the forum. Although without being able to examine you and knowing yoururinalysis report and BUN, serum total protein, serum albumin/CBC, I can not conclude any final diagnosis tolet you know reversing the eGFR result. Any significant fall in eGFR (estimated GFR-Normal above 60 mL)indicates toward Chronic Kidney Disease, but only if this level persists for more than three months. Yourpresent eGFR may be considered normal if you do not have any other symptoms or rest of the investigationreports are within normal range since GFR decreases by 10 ml/min/1.73 m2 every decade of life after 30 years.Additionally, sometimes vegetarian diet may also cause a lower GFR...

What Are the Different Types of Anaphylaxis Treatment?

A: Some individuals have an immune system reaction to something their body perceives an as allergen. Anaphylaxis is a severe allergic reaction. Anaphylaxis treatment should begin as soon as symptoms start. People who have a history of anaphylaxis may be prescribed an EpiPen® for use at home in case a reaction develops. An EpiPen® contains a dose of epinephrine, which may reduce severe allergy symptoms and stop an attack from becoming worse. In addition to a reaction to an allergen, as occurs with true anaphylaxis, some medications such as aspirin can cause a pseudo-anaphylaxis. This form of anaphylaxis is different because it is not caused by a response from...
