I’ve never had a history of that, but my recruiter thinks it’s because I ate a ton of pancakes with syrup and ate a whole bunch of fruit that morning, even though I normally don’t eat breakfast. What should I eat (or not eat) to be prepared next time.

  • I have a large pimple on my nose could it be Gout?

    Best answer: Gout is mostly on your feet or occasionally hands but not your nose and it's never a pimple, more of a painful red mark on a joint. It's just a pimple on your nose, some dirt got into a pore.

  • Diabetics: Did your condition cause dry skin and painful itching in sweaty areas?

    Best answer: If that is your main symptom, then you don't have diabetes. If your sugar levels were high enough or out of control enough to be causing the issues you describe, you would also be having other symptoms. Diabetes doesn't always cause cloudy urine. Most of the time it is just more frequent urination that... show more
    Best answer: If that is your main symptom, then you don't have diabetes. If your sugar levels were high enough or out of control enough to be causing the issues you describe, you would also be having other symptoms. Diabetes doesn't always cause cloudy urine. Most of the time it is just more frequent urination that might or might not be cloudy.

    If you live in an area with dry winter weather, it is highly possible that you just have a very severe case of dry skin. Take a warm shower. While your body is still wet, rub baby oil on all areas that are dry and itchy. Wait five to ten minutes and then towel off gently. (Do not rinse off the baby oil.) Do this at least once every day until your skin improves. If it is just dry skin, it should feel better in just two or three days. If it is not dry skin, then the baby oil shouldn't hurt whatever it is and you will still need to search for other reasons.

  • So on January 25th my blood sugar was 99 in a clinic now my meter is saying is 120 I have ate a lot but have gained only4 pounds is the?

    Best answer: Blood sugar fluctuates rapidly and often through a day. Most often, right after eating a meal, the blood sugars often raise to something like 160 to 180, if not even more. Those readings of 99 and 120 are right on the mark, so I would not worry about it at all. The normal range for all Diabetics, both type 1 and... show more
    Best answer: Blood sugar fluctuates rapidly and often through a day. Most often, right after eating a meal, the blood sugars often raise to something like 160 to 180, if not even more. Those readings of 99 and 120 are right on the mark, so I would not worry about it at all. The normal range for all Diabetics, both type 1 and 2, is 80 to 180. Anything outside of those ranges is the body digesting, or the body being ill, or is just a high blood sugar.
    I have had type 1 Diabetes for 43 years now, and I was recently told my Kidneys are going bad. I am only 49, but I think I am ready to die now.
