For more than 20 years I have suffered from food allergies, digestive problems and relentless diarrhea. I became depressed, had no life energy, felt tired and listless all the time, suffered recurring headaches.
For many years I suffered from terrible depression, unexplainable and unpredictable mood swings. Most mornings, I did not want to get up and face the world - can you imagine being a health care provider and feeling like this? Seven Weeks to Sobriety - The Proven Program to Fight Alcoholism through Nutrition, written by Joan Mathews Larson, PH.D. Those who listen to me and make this simple experiment typically experience similar results. Fifty patients with unexplained vertigo (36) or lightheadedness (14) are evaluated, all of whom had abnormal ENGs and normal audiograms. The response to treatment in these dizzy patients was also startling, with appropriate low carbohydrate diets improving the patient's symptoms in 90% of cases. Drug companies are profit driven – their main interest is the $ sign, not your health.
Most medical doctors know little or nothing about the effects of diet and lifestyle on your health.
In addition to diet changes, I alway address the need for good digestive function and a healthy digestive tract.
Our on-line Self Evaluation is intended to give you feedback as to what issues you might want to address. Your blood sugar swings and hypoglycemia symptoms should be much reduced within the initial four week period. Regular Mediclear Plus use combined with an intelligent diet should be all you need thereafter. Our body loses water throughout the day, when we breathe, sweat and urinate, but we can replenish the water in our body by drinking more and more fluids. The most common cause of dehydration is not enough water intake coupled with too much water loss. Diarrhea – The large intestine absorbs water from food matter hence it leads to dehydration. Vomiting – leads to a loss of fluids and makes it difficult to replace water by drinking it. As they say prevention is better than cure, in case of dehydration it really is the most important treatment.
Replenishing the fluid level in the body will be enough to treat dehydration but people who are dehydrated should avoid drinks containing caffeine such as coffee, tea, and sodas (not so fun now, eh?) until your body’s water levels is back to normal. It is not known if when triglyceride levels are accentuated directly increases the risk for heart disease. Measuring blood levels of triglycerides is performed as part of the well known analysis that measures blood cholesterol. The cause of hypertriglyceridemia fecventa is obesity and poorly controlled diabetes (ie blood glucose levels are maintained within normal values??).
Other causes of high triglycerides are hypothyroidism (thyroid hormones synthesized it does not work well), kidney disease, certain disorders of lipid metabolism (of fats) inherited. Estrogen replacement therapy, used to control menopausal symptoms women may also cause hypertriglyceridemia. It happens very rarely that have elevated triglycerides in isolation (no other analyzes altered), usually associated with other changes. In rare cases, individuals with hypertriglyceridemia may develop pancreatitis (inflammation of the pancreas), which can cause sudden abdominal pain, intense, loss of appetite, nausea and vomiting, fever. If it finds a hypertriglyceridemia, the physician is obliged to seek and other conditions that may be associated with it. Lowering triglyceride levels can be achieved through weight loss, limited consumption of sweets and fats, reducing alcohol consumption and physical activity. It knows that if it’s before lowering HDL and LDL increases then the risk of heart attack and death are reduced, but not known whether lowering triglycerides has the same protective effect. The first step to control the level of blood triglycerides is to reduce calories in the diet, promote physical activity and reduce the amount of alcohol consumed. If triglyceride levels did not normalize the changeovers lifestyle, then you probably need to insert drug. If triglycerides are high, the doctor may use the first drug to fall on them to prevent the onset of pancreatitis. Fibrates (fibric acid derivatives) should be used with caution in combination with statins, because it increased risk of developing a serious muscle disease, life-threatening, called rhabdomyolysis (breakdown of muscle fibers), which in turn can lead to kidney failure (kidneys do not work). If triglyceride levels continue to rise despite treatment with medication and a change in lifestyle, the doctor should investigate the patient in looking for the cause that causes this phenomenon, such as hypothyroidism. If the patient is not yet instituted a treatment, then you probably would be the first step introducing drugs.
In patients who will be treated with a combination of statins with fibrates is extremely important as liver and kidney function to be integrated. Another option for those whose medications have failed to sufficiently reduce blood triglyceride levels is to recommend dietary supplementation with omega-3 acids (found in fish oils) or by adding supplements containing this type of acid or by advising the patient to eat fish 2-3 times a week. An equally important element is to analyze how the patient manages to really make the necessary changes in lifestyle. Perhaps the biggest misconception that people have suffered about diabetes is that it happens only to older people. They too suffer from typical “Diabetes” symptoms but most people just don’t know that these symptoms could be.
The main function of insulin is to help convert the glucose from food into glucose, which is a fuel for the body.

When diabetes is caused due to less insulin production or zero production of insulin by the beta cells in pancreas, it is classified as Type 1 diabetes. It is believed that type 1 diabetes occurs because the healthy body tissues are attacked due to a lowering of immunity.
Knowing about the early diabetes symptoms can help you prevent it of diagnose it right in its earliest stages when it still hasn’t done much harm to your body. People suffering from diabetes not only show physical symptoms but their cognition skills might be affected too.
Any kind of tingling, numbness  and prolonged pain in any part of the hands or the feet can indicate the existence of blood sugar.
As the people suffering from diabetes are prone to infections, they might have wounds which take a lot of time to heal. Vomiting and stomach pains are most often assumed to be due to either food poisoning or common flu, but it can also be a symptom of diabetes. Lifestyle diseases like diabetes, linked to sedentary lifestyles, obesity and bad eating habits, are catching people young.

I had thought and hoped that maybe it was the alcohol that was responsible for all my misery.
Five hour insulin glucose tolerance tests were performed on all patients, with insulin levels being obtained fasting and at one-half, one, two, and three hours. Borderline or abnormal insulin levels were discovered in 82% of patients; 90% were found to have either an abnormal glucose tolerance test or at least borderline insulin levels. It is, therefore, apparent that the earliest identification of carbohydrate imbalance with an insulin glucose tolerance test is extremely important in the work-up of the dizzy patients. Drinking fluids such as water, clear broths, frozen water or ice pops, fresh juices and soft drinks will do the trick. Consuming plenty of fluids and foods that have high water content (such as fruits and vegetables) should be enough for most people to prevent dehydration. They are a major source of energy and fat in the human body are found most frequently in this form. But hypertriglyceridemia (many triglycerides in the blood) is part of a group of disorders called the metabolic syndrome. If an individual is obese and sedentary, then you have high triglycerides, especially if they consume carbohydrates (eg bread, pasta, potatoes, etc.), sweets and alcohol in excess.
Other drugs, such as oral contraceptives, diuretics, beta-blockers (eg, metoprolol, Propanolol) and steroids can cause the hypertriglyceridemia. This is a group of disorders that increase the risk of myocardial infarction (heart attack), stroke (CVA) and diabetes. However, if the disorder is caused by a genetic disorder, then the individual may have fat deposits in the skin called xanthomas. In many cases, individuals do not know they have high triglycerides until who do a blood test called lipidogram they will check blood cholesterol levels.
Antivirals may be used if the individual has risk factors for acute coronary syndrome (myocardial infarction, angina, heart pain ie, occurring at rest, angina on effort appears increasingly less so.) . Excessive alcohol consumption, daily or occasionally, can cause significant increases in triglyceride levels.
It is helpful for the patient to be informed on the amount of carbohydrates they contain certain foods.
If there is the high cholesterol and are present and other risk factors for heart disease, then perhaps we need a combination of drugs that act on different types of cholesterol. Once these two get in the normal range, then you can add fibrates and nicotinic acid therapy to aim directly at lowering triglycerides.
So it is extremely important that the onset of treatment to be investigated renal and hepatic function. If the patient was already taking medication, the next step will be either already antivirals prescribed dose modification of either the addition of new treatment regimen. The patient will be advised to seek medical advice if they experience any kind of pain or muscle problems. It may recommend calling a dietician to assist in making some healthy diet containing foods.
However, recognizing early diabetes symptoms, can prevent it from becoming too severe and cause major harm to internal organs.
Though, there are a number of medications to control diabetes and enhance your cells’ reception to insulin, the problem is never uprooted completely.
People suffering from diabetes have a tremendous amount of blood loss if there is an injury or an accident.
Pancreas become dysfunctional: As we already know, it is the pancreas which release insulin which is responsible for keep the blood sugar level within normal limits. Insulin Resistance: Sometimes even if the body cells absorb insulin, they fail to use it correctly. Defective Insulin: Sometimes there is also a condition wherein the insulin produced by pancreas fails to carry out its function adequately. Beta cells are special cells which are present in the pancreas and are responsible for insulin production. In type 2 diabetes, the fat, liver and muscle cells do not respond well to the insulin that is being produced by the beta cells. It leads to other chronic conditions as well, reducing the overall well being of an individual. They might not be able to concentrate for a long time or might simply not be interested in taking up any task.

It is not only unhealthy to lose weight that way, but it’s an open invitation to other diseases too.
Checking up for the same is absolutely necessary in such cases as this symptom can complicate things further. These wounds can cause a lot of blood loss as it is tough to stop bleeding in diabetic patients. By the time we actually realize that there is a problem somewhere, the damage is already done.
More and more people below the age of 35 are seen suffering from obesity, hypertension and diabetes.
Diabetes, if detected early, can easily be kept under control and you can still lead a healthy and tension-free life. She is a master's graduate in human resource management but fell in love with healthy living.
Sometimes it is not possible to consume the required amount of fluids because either we are too busy (working or studying) or we are in an area without potable and clean water due to which people usually avoid drinking water. While planning activities outdoors in this blazing sun, make sure you have a non-stop supply of fresh water and juices for the entire family. If you consistently consumed more calories than you need then your blood triglyceride levels to rise.
Alcohol can cause sudden increases in blood triglyceride levels, which can have as a consequence inflammation of the pancreas (pancreatitis). Metabolic syndrome includes high triglycerides, low levels of LDL, blood pressure, blood sugar and obesity, especially around the waist. If any problems occur, such as muscle disorders and pain, the patient must be the doctor immediately. To help the patient to perform exercise so useful can be recommended that they try to do a sport in an organized environment (eg a gym, aerobics etc.) In which a professional coach to draw up an exercise program to match patient needs and style. High sugar levels are a result of low levels of insulin, secreted by pancreas, for lowering the glucose levels in blood. Patients also have to suffer from a number of restrictions on what they can eat and what they can’t throughout their lives.
The wounds of such people do not heal quickly and so there are high chances of it becoming septic. When the pancreas fail to release the necessary quantities of insulin, we can say that they are dysfunctional. As there is no insulin, there is glucose build up in the bloodstream instead of its supply to body cells. This happens because high levels of fat makes it very difficult to utilize insulin in the proper manner. Affecting almost all the parts of the body, it is a silent killer, as we have already read before.
High levels of blood sugar in spite of eating a proper diet makes this weight loss possible. If not taken care of in time, it can affect the eyesight further and damage the retina or induce cataract too.
For all those who have a hard time maintaining the work-health balance, getting regular health checkups done is one of the advised solutions to prevent harm due to diabetes. Given how uninformed people were about personal health, fitness and fashion; she felt compelled to educate, enlighten and entertain the average joe and jane around the globe. We do not undertake any responsibility or liability of any health issues caused by following advise on this website.
Individuals who perform vigorous exercises must consume maximum amount of fluids as a priority. When there is insufficient amount of insulin being produced, blood sugar levels go way beyond the normal levels, and a person is believed to be suffering from diabetes.
When the body cells are unable to respond to the insulin produced, the condition is known as insulin resistance.
This condition is very rare and it is mostly one of the first two factors which lead to diabetes. So, when these cells do not use insulin, it is stored in the bloodstream increasing blood sugar. So, it is absolutely necessary to know the signs and symptoms of diabetes for starting early treatment. So much so that at times, it becomes extremely uncontrollable and the gaps between the next visit to the loo is very less.
You may also be having cravings for sweet food and may be snacking on food more often in between meals.
These conditions are not curable unless and until the blood sugar levels come back to normal. If you feel dehydrated, don’t panic, just remember that simply increasing fluid intake can easily reverse it, but in severe cases of dehydration it is important to seek immediate medical attention.
Those with low activity levels, excess weight around the waist and a poor diet are at a higher risk of contracting type 2 diabetes. According to the International Diabetes Foundation, there are a few common symptoms which are a combination of type 1 as well as type 2 diabetes. About 75% of the human body is made up of water therefore in order for us to survive we need to establish a balanced water management system.
This happens when body cells do not respond adequately to the insulin produced, giving rise to diabetes. Z put me on a very limited diet and a number of supplements to combat digestive insufficiency, candida and hypoglycemia.
