By HANS DUVEFELT MD Jeanette Brown had lost twenty pounds, and she was worried. “I’m not trying,” she told me at her regular diabetes visit as I pored over her lab results. What I saw sent a chill down my spine: A normal weight, diet controlled diabetic for many years, her glycosylated hemoglobin had jumped from 6.9 to 9.3 in three months while losing that much weight. That is exactly what happened to my mother some years ago, before she was diagnosed with the pancreatic cancer that took her life in less than two years. Jeanette had a normal physical exam and all her bloodwork except for t...
We present a patient with type 1 diabetes mellitus secondary to immunotherapy, together with an overview of the associated literature. Patients who develop type 1 diabetes mellitus experience a rapid course, and diabetic ketoacidosis is commonly the presenting symptom. Insulin is currently the treatment of choice; oral antidiabetics or corticosteroids do not assist in management. Several predictive factors are under investigation, but physician awareness and prompt management are key to a positive outcome. PMID: 30853817 [PubMed - in process]
Answer: No—unless you do it for more than a few months. After a few months, the upfront metabolic and weight benefits will begin to reverse and new health problems arise. We know this with confidence. I raise this question once again because more and more people are coming to me reporting problems. It may take months, even years, but the long-term consequences can be quite serious. Achieving ketosis by engaging in a very low-carbohydrate, high-fat lifestyle is—without a doubt—an effective means of losing weight, breaking insulin and leptin resistance, reversing type 2 diabetes and fatty liver, redu...
Hyperhidrosis is defined as abnormally excessive sweating unrelated to heat or exercise. If you have this condition you might find yourself sweating so much that it soaks through your clothes or drips off your hands. Hands, feet, underarms and the face are areas that are typically affected, and the sweating usually occurs on both sides of the body. The most common form of hyperhidrosis is known as primary focal (essential) hyperhidrosis. The nerves responsible for signaling sweat glands become overactive, even though they haven’t been triggered by physical activity or a rise in temperature. It’s interesting to ...
Are women with a history of hysterectomy or oophorectomy predisposed to the development of thyroid cancer?Clinical Endocrinology
ConclusionsThis case demonstrated that diabetic ketoacidosis not only could be a potential contributor to myxedema coma but also mask typical clinical features, making diagnosis more difficult. Considering the possibility of an increasing number of potential patients with hypothyroidism developed after thyroidectomy, constant vigilance is required for a better clinical outcome, including early recognition and management in critical care in advance for unusual diabetic ketoacidosis which could precipitate decompensated hypothyroidism.
