Mark asks…

What are some natural supplements that are good for fat burning or metabolic increase?

What are some natural (herbal) supplements that are good for fat burning or metabolic increase for people who are concerned about their blood pressure?

diabetes consultant answers:

The biggest one is actually a mineral called Chromium (which is also in most multivitamins). It helps to boost glucose metabolism among others, so it helps with energy and is often used by Diabetics because of that… But it can be too good for glucose in some cases, so Chromium has a warning to check with a healthcare provider if you’re Diabetic/Hypoglycemic.
There is also a natural product called CLA (Conjugated Linoleic Acid) which is a fat that helps to burn fat. It’s a weird idea, but it works.

There are other natural supplements that give energy that help you workout to burn more fat, but don’t help your metabolism as directly. Also, exercising on a regular basis helps your body naturally increase metabolism on it’s own. Exercising with those two supplements and/or a variety of others will definitely help to burn a lot of fat and are commonly used for weight loss.
Of course, on the flip side, there is no magic pill that will let you burn fat while sitting on the couch watching TV… But once one is made, you know it’ll be the hottest selling product. ;-) Good luck and I hope I helped!

Alana asks…

What supplements should i take for weight lifting?

I have just started weight lifting and i was told i should be taking supplements. There are so many, which ones should i be taking or do i even need them. I am basically looking to bulk up and gain muscle.

diabetes consultant answers:

Well first u need to be doing a good weight program, if u are doing ur weights in the mouring or early in the after noon u will proberly need just the 3 supplements a tri-blend creatine, take this b4 ur workout, whey protein isolate (WPI) not whey protein concentrate(WPC), take this strait after ur workout and u can mix it in with some fruit like a smoothy or something and just b4 u go to bed take some Casein protein powder, this is a time release protien and should be taken with milk to help slow down the absorbtion, this will give protein to ur muscles throughout the night, or if u cant afford casien WPC does basically the same thing just bit cheaper,

if u do ur weight session just b4 bed all u need is that creatine to take b4 ur session and a WPI/WPC blend to take after providing that is when u are goin to bed, also u cant bulk up if u are planning to eat junk food or have no respect for what goes in ur mouth like alcahol ect, just try and stick to natural foods this will help u more than most supplements :D

Thomas asks…

Is it dangerous to take nutritional supplements with prescription drugs?What would you like to ask?

Is anyone taking prescription ibuprofen with nutritional supplements such as SAMe, magnesium, or 5-HTP? Is it safe to do that? I also have white willow bark. Should I take that instead of the prescription ibuprofen and thereby, restrict my intake to only nutritional supplements.

diabetes consultant answers:

Well ibuprofen is an anti-inflammatory medication and the rest seem to be ‘natural’ forms of anti-depressants and anti-inflammatory supplements. What is your intended goal? If you were prescribed something by a doctor I would continue to take that. Do not take the supplements in conjunction with or in place of the prescription your were given.

Kylee asks…

Is there any supplement or procedure I can follow to rid of or lower bloating I get from taking supplements?

I hate getting bloated after taking my supplements for working out. Is there any way to get rid of it, or at least better the situation?

diabetes consultant answers:

Check if there’s a common ingredient to all of the supplements you are taking. Perhaps you are getting bloated from one of those. Or, it could be a food intolerance and you are mistakenly attributing it to supplements.

Paul asks…

What is the difference between supplements and steroids and HGH?

What is the difference between supplements and steroids and HGH (human growth hormone ) !
and how to know which one is more suitable to you !

diabetes consultant answers:

Actually, i consider supplements and steroids to be the same thing cause steroids are a contribute to your body for getting stronger….the hormone is different because supplements and steroids don’t involve hormones….also, whats more suitable for you HA, lets narrow everything down..steroids are unhealthy for anybody so that wont suit anybody, some supplements like force factor are ok for your body and wont do any damage, creatine will. And i would not add an extra hormone into the body cause that will screw up the body’s health patterns

Elizabeth asks…

What are the best work out supplements to take to gain muscle quick?

Im looking for the best supplements that someone can get to gain muscle the quickest and lower your body fat. Im not looking for hormones or steroids of any sort.

diabetes consultant answers:

Well first off nutrition and your training are the most important factors:) As far as supplements, I would consume a high quality chemical free whey protein minus the fillers and additives. Also, L-Glutamine is great to take post workout as well. Good luck

Jim asks…

what are the symptoms of diabetes type 1?

how does it present? how fast does it take for the symptoms to show?

diabetes consultant answers:

I was 13 when I got type 1 and had symptoms like excessive urination, extreme thirst and I lost a lot of weight. I had dark rings under my eyes from all the lack of sleep since i was peeing and drinking all night. The symtoms developed over the course of a week before I sought treatment. It runs in my dad’s family. My parents were able to diagnose it themselves because my older sister and younger brother also have type 1.

Alana asks…

I have type 1 diabetes symptoms should i check my blood sugar?

Thirsty alot,peeing alot,and increased hunger
I dont have type 1 diabetes
I dont have type 1 diabetes

diabetes consultant answers:

I was 13 when I got type 1 and had the same symptoms as you, but I lost a lot of weight. It runs in my dad’s family. If one of your relatives has a glucose meter they can check you but I’d advise you to go to your doctor, bring a urine sample if you can and get diagnosed properly. Best of luck whatever happens, I’ve had it 15 years and my health is great.

John asks…

Symptoms of Type 1 diabetes.?

What are the symptoms of type 1 diabetes? Also, does really yellow urine no matter how much water I drink a sign?

diabetes consultant answers:

When i was diagnosed i had been drinking all the time and peeing it out every thirty minutes i also lost 15 pounds in 4 days from this.
Other symptoms are:
feeling weak
blurry vison
feeling shaky (hands shaking)
stomach ache
loss of appetite
gain of appetite
tiredness
headache.
…….about the urine it doesn’t really matter the color but it could connect. Us sally when the urine is sticky and sugary is a symptom.

Paul asks…

My child has most the symptoms to type 1 diabetes but when I checked her blood it was 84 why?

diabetes consultant answers:

Ask a doctor

Bob asks…

how long does it take to develop type 1 diabetes?

Since I was young, I’ve had sensitive blood sugar. About once a month I’ll suddenly become very hungry, with horrible headaches and dizziness, and have to stop everything and eat and drink slowly until I can sit up again. This is just my norm. I can’t skip a meal without getting very sick. (Throwing up, shakiness, fatigue) Do you show symptoms of type 1 diabetes suddenly or gradually? I’ve had some minor health problems for a few months, and I feel like something is wrong.

diabetes consultant answers:

Although type 1 diabetes itself develops gradually (months to years), the symptoms usually come on rather quickly (days to weeks) and are usually severe. The main symptoms of type 1 diabetes include:

extreme thirst
frequent urination
fatigue
weight loss

What you describe sounds more like hypoglycemia than diabetes.

Mike asks…

How are some ways YOU can tell if you have Type 1 Diabetes?

Lately i have been showing the symptoms for type 1 diabetes, and it has been going on this last month.
But my question is for people who have been diagnosed with type 1 diabetes, What was it like when you first thought you had this decease? How did you feel at the time and what were some of the big signs that you had it? PLEASE BE VERY DETAILED

Thank you very much.

diabetes consultant answers:

Frequent Urination. I’m talking i’ll just go to the and then 30 seconds later i’ll need to go again.
Shaking. So bad it’s difficult to write.
Tiredness. Really tired
Vomiting. Like once a day

Elizabeth asks…

Where to find the best Ephedrine + Caffeine supplements for weight loss?

Desperately in need of useful weight loss supplement to help lose 30lbs gained during pregnancy. HELP!!
I’ve been doing some research and discovered that the best weight loss supplement combination is 25mg Ephedrine, 200mg caffeine, and 5mgs Yohimbe. However, I haven’t been able to locate a supplement that contains these ingredients. Do you know of any? Also, what are the best sites to find these products?

diabetes consultant answers:

This is not a healthy way to loose weight but it’s your life and your choice. I am loosing weight the natural and healthy way on a no diet weight loss plan. I have lost 30 pounds in just over 40 days and I did not skip meals, buy or eat special foods, nor did I have to take drugs. The ingredients in this natural weight loss plan are awesome and this plan is simple and it only takes 15 minutes a day to implement into your life. I generally eat fairly healthy, salads on occasion, fruits, my veggies, grilled or broiled vs fried but I do still eat fast food a few times a week with my kids but it has not stopped my weight loss. Also I have not exercised as I cannot physically due to lower back problems. Whatever your choice is best wishes to you and I know you can do it the naturally and healthy way because I am and I’m 45

Chris asks…

How can I get referrals or people interested in becoming customers?

I work in partnership with a premier wellness company. I open preferred customer accounts for them. We manufacture and distribute a whole range of wellness products such as cleaning products that are safer, environmentally sensitive, and more cost effective. This takes care of your environmental wellness. They also have an outstanding line of vitamins and supplements, weight loss products and such that take care of our physical wellness. We actually have over three hundred wellness products. I don’t sell these products to anyone; however, I certainly endorse the Melaleuca products, and help others make a positive change in their lives by switching to our store.

diabetes consultant answers:

What you are dealing in is called pyramid marketing. There are various companies in the market which are involved in doing this stuff e.g AMWAY (if it is still around).
Most of the time, you will talk to friends / relatives etc to start with.
You should try to get involved with EVERYONE you meet and speak to (even if they are strangers) though you WILL face rejection at first, but your DEDICATION AND CONSTITENCY – will be the key to your success.
Rejection should not be taken personally in this case. This is the real life of a cold calling salesperson.
By endorsing these products, you are SELLING them indirectly.
Believe in yourself and the products you want to sell.
You should have thorough knowledge of your product
You should have a burning desire to succeed.
TRY THIS.

Jemima asks…

How can I lose alot of weight quickly?

I dont have the money to buy detox supplements / weight loss supplements and dont have time to workout I want to lose 20 pounds because it shows and I want to go to the beach and not be embarassed.

diabetes consultant answers:

Hey,u could lose weight quickly if you want to but u must create tym for personal workouts. Exercising for only thirty minutes every morning could give you a really nice shape in just three weeks!

John asks…

What are the best supplements for weight loss?

I am 20 yeara old, 6″2 and weight 215 lbs. i just recently gained a lot of weight as back in the summer i was 190. Most of my fat is in my mid section and I know that’s the hardest place to burn fat. I’m mainly just trying to get back where I was in the summer and to lose a little more than that. I’m starting to go to the gym and doing cardio (2-3 miles on eliptical) and weights 4 or 5 days a week. What supplements can I take that will make the weight loss process a little bit easier and possibly quicker? My goal is to get to 180-185 by may-june. Thanks.

diabetes consultant answers:

** You should try drinking 8 to 16 ounces of water before each meal, this will fill you up and you will eat less, resulting in less calories at every meal. Weight loss pills are not very safe, at least water is safe. I know it may be hard at first to drink water, but you can add more and more everyday until it becomes easier, ( you will get used to it. I lost 50 pounds in three years and kept them off , I also walk for 30 minutes at least 5 times a week. Patience is needed,, if you want quick, this is not it, better to lose slowly than too fast (not healthy for your body) Also I think younger people lose weight quicker. Well good luck too you, hope this helps.

Ken asks…

What is the best weight loss supplement?

What would be a good weight loss supplement that would help you burn fat while helping you get toned without making you jittery or feeling wired?

diabetes consultant answers:

If you want to take weight loss supplements, only take natural ones. These supplements are things like green tea and milk that have qualities helpful to weight loss. For example, milk has a natural appetite suppressant in it.

Susan asks…

Does anyone know of any particularly good weight loss supplements?

Does anyone know of any particularly good weight loss supplements?
I’m looking for something to help curb my appetite (not to replace a meal, just curb the hunger between meals) and boost my energy, but not make me jittery.

I’m just looking for a good supplement that is legal, helpful and over the counter.

I’m not trying to lose massive amounts of weight but I feel like I need a little boost to go with my better eating habits and exercise.
I think I will try the whole chocolate thing!

diabetes consultant answers:

The first thing to learn about weight loss supplements is how and why different types work so that you can find the best one for your own body. There are some good articles posted here that explain how and why different types of diet pills work. Http://www.weightlossfatloss.us/diet_pills.asp Find the right one and they work great.

Nancy asks…

How do you explain to a friend that Protein supplements don’t increase Muscle mass?

A friend of yours is a body builder who takes protein supplements with the idea that this will increase the body’s muscle mass. What explanation might you give your friend to convince him/her that the purchase of protein supplements is a waste of money?

diabetes consultant answers:

Muscle mass is a product of types of exercise. Weight lifting and short distance sprinting will increase the muscle mass. The skeletal muscle are formed of two types of muscle fibers. One is glycogen utilizing broad and white fibers and the other one is fat utilizing narrow and red fibers. Weightlifting and sprinting will stimulate the white fibers to increase in diameter and hence the muscle mass gets enhanced. A long distance (marathon) runner utilizes more fat as more red fibers become active but do not increase in muscle mass. The muscles of marathon runners are adapted for slow and endurance performance and not for speed.

So the muscle development is based on the type of training. No amount of protein supplement is going to amass muscle mass. However, adequate protein in the diet is necessary for sustaining the muscle mass added during the training. If training or exercise is stopped the muscle mass will decrease and any amount of protein supplement in the diet will not help.

Jemima asks…

How would a Professional runner do in bicycling and Professional bicyclist do in running?

Would a Professional runner find Bicycling easier and would a Professional Bicyclist find running much difficult, if they did the same distance? Correct me if im wrong but I find riding a bicycle much easier than running, because you are sitting down while doing cardio. But im not a Profession all at neither one. So I always wondered who would find the change much easier?

diabetes consultant answers:

When cycling you are using the same muscles as you do in running. 4 miles on a bike is equivalent to 1 mile of running.

All my athletes use cycling to supplement their training. There is no pounding and jarring on the feet and legs and therefore risk of injury is reduced.

In your question there is a ‘catch 22′ situation

A professional runner is a runner so cycling can be training
A Professional Cyclist is a cyclist so running can be training

A professional runner will be better at running
A professional cyclist when be better at cycling.

Clear, concise and simple.

Thomas asks…

what kinds of supplement is good for muscle mass?

I am looking to bulk up a little with muscle, so I wanted to know what kinds of supplements are good for that?

diabetes consultant answers:

Don’t waste money on supplements. Too much protein is not good foe us.
Whether you are an avid strength trainer, a marathon runner, or just an average exerciser, a balanced diet that is rich in fruits, vegetables, whole grains, lean meats, fish, and complex carbohydrates is what nutritionists recommend.
Adding more protein but not more calories or exercise to your diet won’t help you build more muscle mass, but it may put your other bodily systems under stress.
The amount of protein you require depends on your weight and your daily caloric intake. Most Americans consume more than enough protein in their daily diets. A few specific groups of people are at risk for being protein-deficient, including elderly women and people with illnesses or eating disorders. A protein deficiency is defined as eating 50% to 75% of the recommended amount of daily protein, Butterfield explains.
Ideally, you should consume 0.36 grams of protein for every pound of body weight, according to recommended daily allowances (RDA) set by the Food and Nutrition Board. So if you weigh 170 pounds, you need about 61 grams of protein each day.

Susan asks…

is creatine an ideal supplement for long distance runners?

I am currently running 6 miles 3 times a week and a long run of 12 miles on sundays. I noticed my legs don’t recover properly during the days I rest, so I decided to put protein supplements on my diet, then I came across this ‘creatine’ thing, and I thought it might be good to give me an extra boost for my tired legs. I know creatine works for bodybuilders, but I am not sure if it will help me for running. Help.

diabetes consultant answers:

It’s great for endurance, but mono-hydrate creatine adds bloat. Not good. Use Kre-Alkalyne to avoid bloat.

Other than that, it’s great for endurance. Yes, even long term, but I would use 2-3x the regular dose/amount if you’re running an endurance lap, or long distance race like 6 miles.(yes, I know you’re not doing a race, but I still call it a race this time)

If you have any further in-depth questions, please feel free to mail me.

Chris asks…

How can I lose 10 lbs? I am an avid runner, but cant lose the weight around my stomch?

I am 5’6, 130 and my mid section is driving me insane. I am a runner at a D-II university, so of course I know that you have to burn more calories than you consume in order to lose weight, but its so hard. Any suggestions on losing those 10lbs??

diabetes consultant answers:

I had a similar problem, I couldn’t get that last 10 lbs off until I tried one of those many supplements out there. In this case I heard good things about acai berry so i found one that offered a free trial and gave it a shot. Had to pay the shipping, but it was only like 5 bucks. Helped me out and I lost the last 10 lbs in a about a month. Didn’t feel lethargic, hyper, or any of the other things people are worried about with supplements. I actually stopped snoring too!

Cindy asks…

What is the optimal diet for a competitive high school runner?

I have a chance to make it far in terms of running track this year, so I want to do everything I can do to make me the best runner I can be, starting with diet. My coach said that I should be taking in about 3000 calories. Specific answers are much appreciated. Thanks.

diabetes consultant answers:

Besides athletes, tall and large individuals also have a high calorie requirement. The 3000 calorie diet plan mentioned here will help you make correct choices to meet your daily calorie requirement.

Group I (Carbohydrates)

• 2 servings cooked cereals
• 1 medium size bagel
• 1 ½ English muffins
• 2 ounce pita bread
• 2 slices whole grain bread
• ½ cup uncooked oatmeal
• 3 pancakes or 2 pancake with 2 table spoon syrup
• 4 cup popcorn
• 4 medium size Pretzels (approximately 2 inch each)
• 1 cup cooked rice
• 1 medium cooked potato
• 1 medium cooked sweet potato
• 1 cup of cooked whole wheat pasta
• 1 cup of cooked peas or corn or winter squash with 1 teaspoon butter

Group II (Proteins)

• 1 cup cooked lentils, beans, sprouts or any other pulses and legumes
• 2-8 oz Skim cow’s milk or skim soya milk
• 2 cups fat free or low fat yoghurt
• ¾ cup fat free or low fat cottage cheese
• 3 oz cooked turkey without skin
• 3 oz cooked chicken without skin
• 3 oz cooked salmon or tuna or mackerel or sardine or any other white fish
• 5 egg whites
• 3 oz cooked shrimps, scallops or clams
• 1 scoop whey protein isolate or 1 scoop egg white protein supplement or 1 scoop soy protein for people with excess protein needs.

Group III (Fruits and Vegetables)

• 1 apple
• ½ grapefruit
• 4 oz fruit juice
• 1 orange
• 1 cup melon
• 1 small banana
• ¼ cup pineapple
• ½ cup grapes
• ½ cup berries
• ¼ cup raisins
• 4 halves dried apricots
• 2 cup cooked carrots
• 2 cup cooked broccoli
• 2 cup cooked cauliflower
• 2 cups cooked asparagus
• 2 cup cooked spinach
• 2 cups cooked summer squash

A Sample 3000 Calorie Diet

Breakfast: Choose 1 and ½ food from each group.

Mid Morning Snack: Choose one food each from group I and III and ½ the amount of food from group II.

Lunch: Choose 1 and ½ food from each group.

Evening Snacks: Choose one food each from group I and III.

Dinner: Choose 1 food from each group.

P.M Snack: Choose one food each from group I and III and ½ the amount of food from group II.

NOTE: There is no separate group made for fats and oils. This 3000 calorie diet plan will provide approximately 66-71 gm fat on daily basis.

Jams, jellies, sugar, fats, butter, mayonnaise, peanut butter or hydrogenated fat will add more calories to your diet, so you will need to cut down calories from other groups. For example if you add 1 tablespoon butter to your lunch then you will need to reduce the food from group I by half. This will ultimately lead to elimination of valuable carbohydrates and the resultant high fat in the diet can cause many other health problems. So it’s wise to choose low fat options like less fat used while cooking a vegetable or fish and preferably using low fat cuts of meat and low fat dairy products. However you can add essential oils in the form of flaxseeds, sunflower seeds, walnuts, soybeans and fish.

Remember to make these dietary changes on a gradual basis as too many changes when followed suddenly can make you feel like you are on a ‘DIET’. These healthy changes should be your permanent lifestyle changes. This means, you should be able to follow this diet plan on most of the days for the rest of your life.

High Calorie Diet:

If you are planning to go an a high calorie diet for weight gain, you must plan and include certain foods into your menu daily. A high calorie and high protein diet is a diet that is high in both calories and protein. Such a diet may be recommended if you are not getting enough protein. You may even choose to embark on such a diet if you wish to put on weight. Remember that some high calorie foods contain a large amount of fat.

Is googolplex or something similar sounding a supplement to lower high blood pressure?

I’m looking for a natural supplement to lower high blood pressure.

diabetes consultant answers:

Go to a doctor is you want to lower your bp. No supplement will work as well as exercise and medicine.

Lynn asks…

What is the best muscle building supplement if you have high blood pressure?

I am on medication for high blood pressure and was looking for a good muscle building supplement and wanted to know what the best kind would be for me.

diabetes consultant answers:

Food.

There is no greater muscle building nutrient than regular old food (good, healthy food of course, lean proteins and complex carbs like veggies and oats).

But eating food (or even taking supplements) won’t work if you don’t then stimulate the muscle to grow. That means lifting heavy weights.

Use supplements only as a last stage, not a first stage. This applies no matter what your blood pressure. (And yes, you can lift heavy weights with high blood pressure but you have to watch your breathing – don’t hold your breath during the lift. See a doctor first.)

What is the best supplement if you have issues with high blood pressure and want to keep your arteries clear?

I just discovered I have high blood pressure and I know that there is a history of heart disease in my family, I want to better protect myself.

diabetes consultant answers:

You’re describing 2 different conditions: high cholesterol and hypertension. They are not mutual conditions, although many people with one tend to have the other.

If hypertension is the issue, a LIFESTYLE change is needed to keep it in control. Popping a pill will not do much of anything.

Avoid stimulants, including caffeine.
Do not smoke.
Avoid very salty foods, especially if you are not very physically active.
Eat a LOT of different vegetables daily. Go beyond lettuce and potatoes.

For cholesterol:
Drink green or white tea daily. FRESH BREWED, not that Arizona crap.
Take a fiber supplement daily…metamucil is advised (capsule form).
Take an Omega-3 supplement daily.

Kirstie asks…

What is the best muscle building supplement if you have high blood pressure?

just wondering what can and can’t for people with high blood pressure.
thanks.

diabetes consultant answers:

There’s a two-sided answer on this. First, the obvious statement that as long as your doctor okay’s the exercises you’ll be doing, you can try most of the non-caffeine-based products that help with muscle building (as caffeine can cause many problems with BP).
The other part is the actual supplements, which would be protein (whether a supplemental powder or any good source of meat/veggie protein) and some nutrients for circulation like L-Arginine. Depending on how high your BP is, the L-Arginine may be a great option for you (as it can help BP and circulation), but because it can impact BP and circulation, you may want to check with your doctor to see if it’s safe for you (as there might be rare problems, but it’s not common). Same thing applies for the energy supplements like Ribose, Creatine, etc… It may or may not be a problem with your BP, but I’d check with your doctor to be on the safe side. Good luck and I hope I helped!

Joseph asks…

Is taking iron supplement not advisable for people with high blood pressure?

Since Iron is recommneded for anemic people, will it do harm if it is taken by people with high blood pressure?

diabetes consultant answers:

It won’t affect your blood pressure, but if you are not anemic you don’t need iron supplements. It may be harmful to have high iron levels. There is evidence that it can cause or increase atherosclerosis.

Weird dark brown circle spot on my neck. Any ideas what it is?

My gf started noticing few dark brown circular spots on my neck. I googled for ringworms and diabetes but none of them actually look like what i have. They are not birthmarks since i never had those. I have 3 of these circles.

any ideas? should i go see a doctor?

http://i587.photobucket.com/albums/ss320/brainhackr/weirdzz.jpg

diabetes consultant answers:

I have the exact same spot on my chest, and my mom has one also. I’ve had mine for many years. I went to the doctor about something else and briefly asked her about it. She said it was pigmentation, but she just glanced at it and seemed a bit preoccupied.

diabetes consultant answers:

Similar to the association of necrobiosis lipoidica and diabetes, it appears that a high percentage of persons with disseminated granuloma annulare have diabetes mellitus. The individual lesions typically consist of an annular array of erythematous to brown and slightly translucent papules.

can someone summarize this article?

A moderate sun exposure has never harmed your skin. It helps in building vitamin D in your body which proves to be very beneficial for your body. It has been found that vitamin D can minimize the cancer deaths with the presence of enough vitamin D. With the presence of pros, sun also has enough number of cons in its bag. Due to sun’s exposure you can get a suntan or sun burn as well as sun poisoning. We have glorified the suntan skin due to the continuous glaring visions of half-naked men and women running on the beach. But there is more truth to it than what you see on the TV. Suntan causes skin to deteriorate faster with a leathery, wrinkled skin which may be diseased by skin cancer.
Sun poisoning is also known as Photodermatitis, sunburn or sun allergy. It is non-scientific term which mainly results in skin allergies. It affects people with light-skin as they have less protective skin pigment. Anyone for that matter can be affected when over-exposed to the sun. Sun poisoning occurs when combined with drugs, cosmetics, chemical and plants. If you have been working in a farm and in contact with the chemicals as well the plants it may cause an allergic reaction. Wearing a certain deodorant or using a certain kind of soap or shampoo can also lead to an allergic reaction for sun poisoning. Having medicines for blood pressure, birth control, diabetes or fungus infection or ringworm can also be one of the causes for sun poisoning. Suntan affects differently to the different skin types. They are slotted into six categories which depend on the different skin types.The different skin types are-

Very sensitive which burns and never tans Tanning is very little but can burn easily Tanning is gradual and burning is moderate Easily tans with less burns Tans abundantly and very rarely burns Least sensitive with less burns and heavy tanning

Lyme disease??? help please.?

For years now (i am 17) i have been struggling with this feeling that i feel like i’m ‘detached’ from myself like an unreal feeling, like im in a dream state in a way this is constant, 24/7. I do not get a break from this feeling. I’ve struggled with this feeling for years now, it progressively got worse and now it’s just too hard to do anything. Going to work and school is hell. I used to have panic attacks all the time, anxiety over this feeling. I thought i had some horrible disease.. Been tested for everything been to so many doctors, cat scan on brain, mri on neck, ultrasound on stomach, endoscopy and biopsy.. nothing.. just some inflammation in my esophagus and stomach is all.. and my nose is always clogged even when my allergies arent acting up.. I get this pain on the left side of my stomach, its very uncomfortable sometimes to the point where i have to bend over and squeeze that side with my stomach muscles to relieve the pain. I have neck stiffness, very bad. even when i go to my chriopractor and get adjusted it still is stiff. my chest recently just started to become ‘stiff’ not that long ago. It cracks a lot. I get this white light strobe light like floater in my left eye. I get headaches, migraines.. sometimes i get tingling in my left upper arm or a slight numbness feeling.. sometimes (rarely) i go slightly deaf in one of my ears.. also, my face (under my eye usually) will twitch too. I do sometimes get pains in my knees.. We thought it might be candida, but the endoscopy would have showed that most likely.. we thought it could be gluten intolerance.. not sure anymore though.. i’m being tested for celiac right now.. but I was talking about lyme and i used to get A LOT of ticks on me as a child. i used to climb trees and such and my mom would always check me and we had to always get some off of me.. there was one that was really hard to get off of me i remember.. and i also had ringworm when i was little, on my face up on my forehead.. But i went to school with it and it had spread to other parts of my face too and it was so bad the school told me i had to go home.. and ringworm is supposably really contagious.. but no one i touch had got it.. maybe it was the rash from a bite from a tick? is this possible?… does anyone think i should go talk to a lyme specialist or to save money anything you know that i could take to see if i feel better? Please, i just want my life back. You have no idea how hard it is to live with this.. i go out trying to smile to be happy as i usually am and i just come home and cry.. my boyfriend is doing everything he can to make me feel better as well as my mom.. please

AND i’ve been to SO MANY DOCTORS AND SPECIALIST it’s ubsurb.. I’m depressed. so depressed.
Im a happy person, rarely seen without a smile, but not anymore and that is what makes me mostly upset, the fact that my life is great but this ‘illness’ or whatever is holding me back..
here’s a list of some doctors i’ve seen.
-neurologist (cat scan of brain normal)
-endochronologist (blood tests normal)
-cardiologist (heart is completely normal)
allergist (have allergies to mold, pollon, grass, maple trees, dogs cats etc. and high mold allergy)
chiropractor (my neck and spine are HORRIBLE which is why it could be related to lyme because i have read lyme affects joints and such..)
specialist doctor (glucose blood test, showed low blood sugar but i was told by the endo that test is stupid and the doctor tried to tell me i had diabetes but thats bullshit because they checked for pre-diabetes and diabetes and NOTHING.)
I had a gluten intolerence blood test and it came back ABNORMAL.. so they are testing me for celiac but the results havent come in yet.
Gastroendronologist (sp?) Had a endoscopy and they did a biopsy on my stomach and celiac to check because i had inflammation in my esophagus and stomach and they’re trying to find the reason. (has not come back yet) they’re checking for celiac as well.
I’ve had a MRI on my neck for my nerves and all is well..

AND DON’T TELL ME ITS ANXIETY/DEPRESSION. THERE IS A REASON I HAVE ANXIETY/DEPRESSION AND IT’S OVER WHATEVER THE HELL IS HAPPENING TO MY BODY AND WHY I FEEL THIS WAY. i know my body better than ANYONE else, i hate when i hear that crap. People kept telling me to be positive and it would go away.. IT’S BEEN YEARS. AND I’VE ALWAYS STAYED POSITIVE, NOW IM FED UP

diabetes consultant answers:

You definatly have lyme disease

You have all the symptoms of it and youve been biten multiple times by ticks. Just so you know, almost EVERY tick carries lyme

I have lyme disease and I want you to know that i went through exactly what you are going through. I was so sick. Had all these crazy symptoms,. And I was going to tons of doctors and none of them knew what was wrong with me because my tests were all coming back normal as well.

Dont listen to all these doctors. You have lyme. Lyme disease is a huge epidemic right now . And it keeps going undiagnosed and un treated. I went to the LYMENET forum online and they helped me find a doctor

please visit this forum. Sign up and tell them your story, they will help you get a doctor!

Jane asks…

ford???????

i want to know why people who like fords think they are so bad a** and they always run their mouth to CHEVY owners ( i know tons of answers i just want to hear yours)

diabetes consultant answers:

Ford owners run their mouths trying to look good because they have a lot of time to think of what they are going to say to the Chevy owners while their cars are in for repairs. Ford owners hate all GM owners because stock, the only Ford that can beat a stock GM is a Mustang Cobra, not even the GT500 could beat a Z28 Camaro. Of course, if the Ford owner actually babied their car like the GM owner does and then built it up, then maybe the Ford would beat the GM and they woul finally have room to run their mouths a little more. From experience, the only Ford that has beat my 13 second WS-6 was an SVO Mustang (turbo charged).

Cindy asks…

How common and interchangeable are Ford parts?

I am living in Chile and I am in the process of buying a Ford Escape 2008 petrol 2.3. However, I will be moving to South Africa later this year, and I was planning to take the vehicle. I learned that Ford South Africa does not sell Ford Escape but sells instead Ford Territory and Ford Ranger. How common are the parts of Ford Escape with the other Ford ranges available in Africa and how easy will be to source parts?

diabetes consultant answers:

It depends on the parts you are looking for. Any petrolium burning 2.3L Ford engine will interchange parts almost 100% based on the production run of the engine. If the engine was built in 2008 than almost any 2.3L from 2005-present should interchange parts very readily. Suspension componants tend to differ from model to model so it would be difficult to find parts such as control arms and things of that nature. The brake system may have the same componants as the ranger or territory but you would have to research that in great detail and make sure the part numbers are EXACTLY the same. Hope that helps.

Shelley asks…

Is is recommended to buy used FORD Sedan when FORD is struggling with bailout?

I am a student in Florida. I am planning to buy a used Ford Focus. I am not sure whether to buy a Ford Sedan when Ford, GM are struggling for their survival. If Ford goes out of business will I still be able to maintain my vehicle by a local mechanic or some repair shop.

diabetes consultant answers:

Most parts on new vehicles are not made by the vehicle manufacturer themselves, but by other companies that supply them. The manufacturer puts these parts together and makes a car. If a car company were to go out of business, these suppliers would still be able to provide replacement parts, and other companies would also provide aftermarket versions ot the parts.

Even if a car company was to go bankrupt, that bankruptcy would be a reorganization, not a liquidation. They would still be in business.

Dealers are independent business. If the company were to close (not likely) the dealer could still exist as a private shop. Other shop can also work on your vehicle, so you have nothing to fear there.

Do not let fear of the future of the auto industry keep you from buying the car that suits your needs.

Marie asks…

How come Ford does not require an immediate bailout in contrast to the other Big 2?

I understand that Ford will obviously be affected if the other two go under but is Ford more diversified than then the other two that it has other sources of income?
Perhaps they are better organized financially?

diabetes consultant answers:

Honestly Ford may have been the only one to see the market and bank crash coming. Either that or it was a huge lucky break. Either way they benefit (or likely suffer less) while everybody including foreign companies suffer.

A few years ago they mortgaged everything they own to get some extra cash just in case.

Chrysler was still owned by Daimler who had no interest in creating a profitable company so even if they saw it coming they did nothing. They just used Chrysler profits from the 90′s to rebuild Mercedes.

Honda, Toyota, VW, and Hyundai are all in the process of building new plants in the US yet stuck idling the plants they have because of low demand. They obviously didn’t see it coming either.

Thomas asks…

How can I improve my memory power & concentration?

I have been using gingko biloba and fish oil, which has substantially affected my ability to remember my dreams at night.
I need more, I still find myself a little slow on the draw, so to speak.

I’m open to anything; supplements, memory exercises or whatever.

diabetes consultant answers:

Eat more eggs. There is an ingredient in eggs that is said to improve memory.

Jane asks…

Can a 18 year old take bacopa monnieri supplement (memory enhancer)?

Can a 18 year old take bacopa monnieri supplement (memory enhancer)?
I forget what I’ve read, learned, or what was discussed in class easily. I want to go to college and take medical assistant course but me forgetting things easily, I dont think I can survive college.
So I want to know if I can take the supplement.

I’m giving 5 stars to the person who answers with a little detail, not just a “yes” or “no” answer.

diabetes consultant answers:

Yes. All supplements that don’t have an age listed are generally recommended for those 18 and over so you’d be perfectly fine with a Bacopa Monnieri supplement (or Ginkgo, Fish Oil, DMAE, Acetyl L-Carnitine, or one of a few other memory support products).
I’ve personally been taking Bacopa for a few years and it has helped my short term memory IMMENSELY compared to what it used to be. Granted, different people do respond differently to different products and I have talked to some people that it hasn’t worked as well on them as some others, but sometimes you have to try a few different things to see what works best. Also, as an anecdote, most of the brain support products took a while to feel the effects (usually 2-3 weeks or so at the most), but it was very gradual… In the case of the first one I took, it took me longer to realize the product was working than it took for the product to work. Specifically, I realized about 5 weeks in that I hadn’t forgotten why I walked into a room for a good 3 weeks (which was a common issue for me before I started taking it). LOL! Good luck and I hope I helped!

Nancy asks…

What non-prescription (over the counter) drugs can I use to improve my memory and concentration?

I’ve heard about legal, non-prescription drugs and diet supplements that can improve memory, cognitive function, concentration, and quick thinking. What would you recommend based on your medical knowledge and/or experience with such substances?

diabetes consultant answers:

Do not listen to ghost. DXM is a illegal drug when abused as such. It can also turn up in drug screens, but I think only as alcohol. Also, it makes you feel drunk, can make you hallucinate, and if your body can’t handle it (it’s VERY strong, think drinking whiskeyX2) you will vomit. It will feel like your vomiting forever. You will not be able to function. It’s the closest thing to death I’ve ever experienced.

Daniel asks…

What memory supplement is safe to take while breastfeeding?

I have problems remembering things since I gave birth to my baby. Has anyone ever used a supplements to help them with memory loss that were recommended by their health care provider that is safe while breastfeeding?

Seriously.. Sleep deprivation is really hard on the head :) I just started making lists and being more diligent at using my day planner. And sleep when baby sleeps!

Good Luck :-)

Mandy asks…

How do you know how much room to leave free on your HHD for virtual memory?

Because some programs use more virtual memory than others.
I heard crisis uses a lot of virtual memory.
Is there any guidlines to follow in regards to this matter?
Thanks!

diabetes consultant answers:

As said, you should set virtual memory to about half again the amount of physical ram, in theory. In practice the more memory your machine has then the less it will use the virtual mem. For examble, if you had a terabyte of ram you’d not need any virtual memory, it’s just used to supplement the memory. Whatever size you decide on, it’s worth following this procedure:

1) Set the computer to have no page file, then reboot it.

2) Set the page file size manually, make both the min and max sizes the same. Now reboot again

What you’ve done here is to make a pagefile that windows can’t resize, therefore it can’t become fragmented. It may be worth defragmenting the drive before doing this if it’s so fragmented that there won’t be a continuous space on the drive that’s big enough to hold the page file, otherwise it’ll end up split up to fit it in.

When I’ve got a machine with a lot of memory I sometimes prefer to disable the page file, this forces windows to just use RAM, which is much faster. However if you do run out of memory then your software may crash if it can’t allocate memory that it needs.

Marie asks…

How do you know which supplement actually works?

With all the different dietary supplements for muscle gain out there and the fact that they all claim to be able to give you the best results, which ones actually do what they say they can do?
Any positive experiences or insider information would be great.

diabetes consultant answers:

When ou take supplements you have to put in the hard work as well. Eg, 30g Redback Whey protein mix, 30g pure carbs, 1tsp growling dog creatine, mixed in with 500g of trim milk. My husband is an amatuer bodybuilder and he takes approx 5 protein drinks a day. Measure your food and ensure you get the best quality meat. Also train hard and clean diet.

Ken asks…

Does using protein supplements help when doing male enhancement exercises?

I’m trying out some male enhancement exercises and I’m weight training a lot also. Proper weight training + proper protein supplements = muscle gains, and I know the penis is a muscle too, like the muscles I’m building when I train. So wouldn’t the male enhancement exercises + protein help in the same way? Or is the penis not significant enough of a muscle for your body to flow the protein to? I’m just curious.

Also, I’m looking for good protein powders; any suggestions?

diabetes consultant answers:

It may be a muscle but that stuff will not help you with growth down their, just be happy with what you were born with.

Caroline asks…

Effects of Protein Supplements on Muscle Gain?

Is there any conclusive, reliable and un-biased research on the effects of protein supplements on muscle gain? What are the conclusions the research has arrived at?

People tend to get very defensive about this topic, especially if they are using protein supplements. Please, try to be neutral towards the topic; I am looking only for facts supported by scientific research.

diabetes consultant answers:

Trust me, protein supplements arent bad, just make sure you know exactly what you’re putting in your body before you take it. Obviously if you’re not just taking a cheap supplement from ur local store and ur using the expensive kind AND ALSO working out properly then there would be a positive effect on your muscle gain. U dont need a scientific explanation to tell you that! Of coarse like with anything not approved by the F.D.A. “individual results may vary” i personally dont use supplements but i’m not against them either. Just dont take steroids!

Alana asks…

What Supplements Do You Recommend For Muscle Gaining?

i’m about to go buy some barbells and weights because i’m looking to get into shape and build muscle, i need to know what supplement everyone recommends for fast muscle gain, size, and endurance or were to begin…..any information would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

diabetes consultant answers:

Unless you have a huge backing to equip your home with your own personal gym and training space, I highly recommend going to the gym and also eating a high calorie natural diet to gain weight. So many people I have coached have done it this way and so I really do not see the reason why you should buy the equipments as well as the supplements to gain weight. What you need is a high calorie diet, sleep and the right workout regime to help you to gain muscles.

The key thing about diet is to eat more calories. This does not mean you feed yourself huge meals 3 times a day. This will lead to indigestion, gastric pains and other digestive complications because there is only so much your body can digest at one time. The idea is to eat more meals a day, preferably 6. This can be difficult if you are on the move all day like I’m so I suggest just stick to your 3 meals like you do but bring a long a liter of milk with you before you leave the house. Drink 500ml of milk in between each of your meal and finish the last dose 2 hours after dinner. This will provide the extra calories you need to gain weight. If after a week your weight is still not going up, simply increase the amount of milk you drink by 100ml and stick to your normal portions for your normal meals. Keep doing this until you gain the weight you need to. You should be putting on roughly a pound a week in my opinion. Once you gotten 2-3 pounds, it is time to focus on getting the right workout to help you build muscles and ensure that your body gain weight more steadily.

The best workout to do in order to grow muscle mass in terms of size is to do a high weight low repetition workout called hypertrophy. This will adjust your muscles to use the food you eat as the main source of energy rather than oxygen like smaller muscles do. If you are starting out to gain muscle mass, perhaps you should download the program at http://gohforth.com. This program has been extremely effective for me personally and also benefited my clients very well.

One thing that many people miss out is the fact that sleep is extremely important to help you gain weight and maintain a strong immune system. This is because when you stay up late, have interrupted sleep cycle or not enough hours of rest, you will burn more calories throughout the day and this means that you have to eat more or risk loosing weight. This is made worse if your metabolism is like mine in the past and this will probably mean you will lose up to 3-4 pounds in a week due to poor quality sleep. The road is long and tough, but as long as your stick by the 3 things which is a high calorie diet, sleep well and do the right workout regime, you will see roughly a 1 pound of muscle weight gain a week. I hoped I have helped you.

Kylee asks…

What is the best protein supplement to take for maximum muscle gain?

I’am 18 years old, 6 feet tall and weigh 160. I’am currently taking magnum qauttro protein. I’am just wondering what is the best protein to take for muscle gain. I dont want to gain any fat. I workout around 4 to 5 times a week. Also, how many shakes a day should i take and at what times?

diabetes consultant answers:

Maximuscle Cyclone, no doubt. Best ‘all in one’ formula available. Not entirely sure if its available in Canada though.

Have a shake first thing in the morning, as you have went all night without nutrients. To maximise your gains, you need to consume protein up to 20 mins after a workout to supplement your muscles or your body will feed of your reserves. On days you are not working out just take it in the morning and in the evening.

Jane asks…

Is creatine a good supplement for fast muscle gains?

I am 15 years old and I want to get ripped fast. Do you think I should take creatine as a supplement for my workouts? Also, if I do not like it, can i stop taking it altogether, or will my muscle gains from creatine diminish.

diabetes consultant answers:

Creatine do sent really do much. At your age just eat more. If you really want creatine then buy a weight gainer called cytogainer. It has creatine in it. Only problem with it is if you fallow the instructions you will end up taking in more creatine that needed and thus waste your money. For just a weight gainer try truemass.

Nancy asks…

what are symptoms of diabetes in cats?

diabetes consultant answers:

Similar to those in humans- frequent urination, increased drinking, weight lose, fatigue, and and increase in hunger.

Kirstie asks…

what are the symptoms of diabetes in cats?

diabetes consultant answers:

Increased drinking and urination. Increased appetite. Initial gain in weight followed by dramatic weight loss. Typically seen in already obese cats, but not always. Several of these symptoms mimic other disease processes, such as those for kidney failure and hyperthyroidism.

Steve asks…

Are these symptoms of diabetes in a cat…?

I am caring for a neighbor lady’s cat. In a nutshell, she and I are civil, but our cats are buds which is the only reason I am doing it. Over the past few days I have become concerned that the cat might be diabetic. I don’t know who the cat’s vet is, if any (she’s on a limited budget and got the $5 rabies shots the Firehouse gives). My regular vet, I just found out, had a stroke and is closing his practice. The other vet I use feels he is not the best for this (he caters more to livestock) and only has office hours two days a week. The nearest small-animal vet is a considerable drive, I used her once, don’t like her, but my choices are limited. And, as the limited-income lady is heavily sedated (and will be for some time) after stint surgery, any vet visit is going to be on my dime, as I have to approach this as if I will never be reimbursed. I am stretched pretty thin right now, and want to know what I will be dealing with should I decide to have the cat tested with this or some other vet.

Now, before I get to the cat symptoms, this cat suffered what was believed to be an idiopathic vestibular episode that many cats suffer from in late summer. So, it is possible some of the symptoms might relate to that, and I have annotated those that might be residual from this. However, I am beginning to wonder whether or not the issue was vestibular, but instead a diabetic episode (from what I recall, it took about 3 weeks for the cat to recover, however maintained a little imbalance).

The cat is male, neutered, a dense dsh, 16 years old. Diet (as best I can tell from her pantry and what she has told me) is primarily Friskies dry and the occasional wet food. I found 2 Special Kitty, a 4-pack of 9-Lives Tuna, and 2 cans of Friskies Turkey and Giblets…(yeah, you don’t need to tell me those are crap, but I guess that is the best she could afford, Suzy said charitably )

Worrysome symptoms (which I have spent the entire exhaustively researching, but I want to hear from real people):

* Cat has gained weight (but, has been indoors only since vestibular problem, ergo, getting less exercise and probably eating more). I’d say the cat had gained 3-4 pounds since I say him last August, and has lost about 1/2-1 pound since being with me. I have, however, after transition, been feeding him primarily wet canned (Innova) with a little of my home-made cooked. I have given him very little dry, and what dry I did is Chicken Soup (again transitioned).

* Cat is drinking and peeing like there is no tomorrow. I mean buckets.

* In the past couple of days the appetite has been what I would consider less than normal. I have stopped with the dry altogether.

* Oddness in walking — hind end seems a little weak, has trouble jumping up (relying on front paws to actually pull himself up), walks with back humped, tail sort of up and bent, seems to walk with hocks down a little (not totally on hocks, but back legs are not totally straight). This could be a residual effect of the vestibular problem, or not.

* Oddness in one eye — the cats eyes used to both reflect yellow, the left one is now reflecting red. Vestibular or diabetic issue?

* Urine has become less ammonia pungent

* Seems a little more lethargic and a bit less interactive, vocal, and affectionate over the past couple of days (yes, could be missing home, but this cat used to consider my house his second home).

I can’t discern any sweet or fruity smell on the breath — the cat does have some dental issues, and that is all I can smell. Urine doesn’t seem to smell sweet or fruity, but I have noticed the pungency has gone down — this could possibly be a result of a better quality food I have been feeding him.

For those of you whose cats have been diagnosed with diabetes, how do these symptoms compare with your cat’s? Is there anything else I should be looking for to give me clues?

In a separate post, I am going to ask for dietary advice, as what I have found is so conflicting.

Thank you so much for your time.
I suspect it has been a long, long, long time since the cat saw a vet even for a general check up.
“Momo” (my nickname for his real name, Morris) had his tests including x-ray (couldn’t afford mri or cat scan) — glucose elevated, but not life-threatening, renal problems but vet says still has 60-70% function, both of which is good news and vet thinks can be handled with diet…once the parasites are dealt with. Vet doesn’t want me to move to raw for him yet as he wants to monitor based on current diet until parasites/worms handled. Thinks vestibular problem was actually a stroke ergo trouble walking and other issues. Found out owner going to nursing facility, daughter gave me $100 to dump him at a shelter or have him put down, so I used it for the vet visit….can’t imagine too many people wanting to adopt a 15+ cat with issues, so it looks like Suzy has another mouth to feed and litter box to clean…we’ll manage some how.

Thank you all for answering; that you did helped calm me down & give focus. I wish I could give everyone best answer.

I can’t thank all of you enough
New vet studied at UGlasgow (Scotland) with add’l degree from Cornell — Big sign in office that says “This Veterinary Office Does NOT Condone De-Clawing of Cats.” and, advocates a natural wet and/or raw diet that de-emphasizes dry food. Gotta love him!

Hi,

This is a very good question. Although some of the symptoms you’ve described are similar to those caused by Diabetes, I would not be 100% sure until a vet examines him. Diabetes, in general causes weight loss besides increased appetite, thirst and urination. Since the resources here are low, you might want to switch him, just in case, to a diet higher in fiber. You can even add more fiber to your home made diet (by the way, thank you for responding my BARF question. My cats are doing just wonderful and you have certainly motivated me). Diabetic kitties require more fiber added to their diet.

So, yes, some of the symptoms you describe can be linked to Diabetes but they can also be linked to the beginning of renal failure. I am so, so sorry about this little fella. Good job for taking care of him.

Keep us posted!

John asks…

What are the symptoms of cat diabetes?

I AM the type of person that takes my pets to the vet whenever need be so please no comments like that. I was just wondering if anyone here has personal experiences of owning a cat that came down with diabetes. I’m wondering what the symptoms are or what you noticed different about the cat to think it had diabetes. I don’t think mine has it, i just get WAY too psychotic about them. All she’s doing is playing more than usual and begs for food alot. I’m just hoping its from the change in weather or that shes happy and feels good. Thanks a bunch for any response.:)

diabetes consultant answers:

Typical signs include significantly increased drinking, increased urination (sometimes inside, sometimes outside of the litterbox), sudden and unexpected weight loss, intense hunger, and less frequently a “rabbit stance” (rear feet flat on the floor from toes to hock) or rear limb weakness.

Marie asks…

Is nerve damage in cats from diabetes reversible once on insulin? Cat is off balance when jumping?

He is having difficulty jumping and with balance in general. We’re going back to get the results because the vet thinks he has diabetes but it also appears he may have the nerve damage symptom. Will my cats balance be a little better once he starts insulin?

Hi
If you are talking about the back legs, it can be totally reversable with regulation. Google and buy zobaline.
I am an expert in feline diabetes and help many people accross the world with treating this correcctly. Many vets are not up date on this disease. If you are interested and are willing to be proactive in treatment, email me justken@rocketmail.com

Helena asks…

Are blue russian cats prone to diabetes?

my blue russian cat has the symptoms of diabetes but i don’t know..i heard somewhere cats get it 1 in 400 but my friend has a blue russian cat and hers has it =[

diabetes consultant answers:

I suppose it’s just the same for any cat. I have a Russian Blue and he’s 17 years old and healthy. Then again, he may be one of the 399.

I suggest you take your cat to the vet so that if he does have diabetes, you’ll be able to learn how ot care for him.
