Husband might have diabetes, how soon after starting treatment will he start to feel better?

Husband might have diabetes, how soon after starting treatment will he start to feel better? Topic: News writing and reporting tips
June 17, 2019 / By Freda
Question: I made an Doctor's appointment for him, He has felt like crap for awhile now and I was just wondering how soon after treatment will he start to feel better? He has been having stomach pains and Nausea as well as extreme thirstiness and Headaches among a whole list of other things that were all on the Diabetes symptoms list. Also is their anything he can do until he goes to the doctor that will help him feel better? Like foods to eat/stay away from or any tips you might have. I know it is going to be expensive and he has no insurance is their any way he can get help with cost. And I don't want to look at your websites or try your new miracle cures so don't post them, you will be reported as spam! I understand that he might not have it, That's why we are going to a doctor. I am asking if their is anything known to make symptoms worse so he can avoid them. He is unemployed by the way, and he would not be in the hospital , I read that you can go 3 or 4 years and not be diagnosed with it.

All that follows assumes he is diabetic. Also, what I am telling you will not hurt either of you unless your or he has some obscure condition only Dr. House could diagnose. You and he will have to watch his diet. Read those labels and pay attention to the serving sizes. Some food packages base their nutritional numbers on ridiculously small servings. Carbohydrates is where the problem lies. Sugar is a carbohydrate but so are potatoes, rice, bread and a lot of other things including many fruits and vegetables. Limit his meals to 45 grams of carbs until he gets a Dr.'s input. Get on the web and look up Glycemic Index. This is an OK place to start: http://www.glycemicindex.com/ I have been type 2 since 2004, and I am managing the condition. I accept email at my profile and I answer them. Please send any questions that I might help with and I will even do some research for you. Now get started on that diet. The sooner his sugar is under control the less damage the condition will do to his nerves, circulation and vital organs. One thing you both should know. People almost never die from diabetes, they die from complications caused by diabetes. If you control the diabetes you don't damage the heart, kidneys, liver etc. nearly as much or as fast as you do with uncontrolled glucose levels. EDIT: Glycemic Index is not some magic cure. It is a rating of carbohydrates. Different foods are absorbed differently by the body. Fast absorption of a carb spikes blood glucose. If you had taken a second you would not have forced this. Now report me for SPAM, or any other damn fool thing you care to do but don't waste time writing me as I will not respond. You have a problem; your attitude stinks. You have destroyed a good FREE source of information. Sleep well.

First, stop worrying, shaking etc are also signs of stress! I get hypo symptoms when my bloods go below 4.5 ish, but then i have woken up when i have swine flu to find they were 1.2!!! Lots of sugar and a lovely paramedic to help me lol Don't worry about the low blood sugars, if you feel you need to eat something, have a couple sugar cubes / jelly babies to bring it up a little bit, then have toast or something with complex carbs in to sustain your glucose levels. Dont avoid carbs like is suggested as this will bring on a hypo!!! Keeping a food diary is a good thing along side the glucos monitoring so you can see what effect different foods have on your body. Even if it turns out you are diabetic, its nothing to worry about. I inject 4 times a day, but its not difficult (you get over the weirdness of injecting yourself pretty quickly) and you still get on with your life. Take care of yourself, and eat healthily anyway regardless of if you are diabetic

He will feel BETTER within 2 or 3 days, but many of the symptoms will linger for weeks or months. There is only one thing for sure -- the LONGER he keeps his blood sugars normal, the better he will feel. If he can keep normal blood sugars for 2-3 YEARS, most of his symptoms will go away completely. This does NOT have to be expensive. It sounds like he has Type 2 Diabetes. The MAJOR treatment for Type 2 Diabetes is a properly healthy diet, getting more exercise, and losing weight. ALL OF THESE THINGS ARE FREE! If he changes his lifestyle, he will get better, and the amount of drugs necessary can be reduced. MANY Type 2 Diabetics actually eliminate ALL drugs by simply losing weight! FREEdom! ALL of the pharmaceutical companies have "Patient Assistance Programs" to help patients like you. FIRST, find out what medications the doctor orders. THEN contact the company on the internet, by email, and ASK about their Patient Assistance Program. Help in this way can range from discounts to freebies ASK the doctor for "samples". ALL of the drug companies send out salesmen who leave samples with the doctor. the doctor is free to give them away as he sees fit. Maybe he has some left to help you. Man doctors provide test meters for free, but you have to buy the test strips. Again, find out WHAT TYPE, and then contact the company's Patient Assistance Program by email.

Sc use me but it's a fifty-fifty your husband is diabetic. He could be suffering anything else too. If he were diabetic, he would be commit ed in a hospital until recalling. But it depends on his body. And he can't get help with no cost. Perhaps he could be classified as jobless if he is, and get to an arrangement about the medicare with the social welfare. And there're no valid tips until knowing what his illness really is.
