  • Re: RADIATION THERAPY for a diabetic Pro's & Con's

    I am now into my 5th week of the radiation. I am burnt to a crisp yet still alive two more weeks of radiation to go. I doubt that any research has ever been done on the effects of radiation on people taking insulin. My BS is off the chart....The endo said she has no idea how to manage this and that I should not panic and expect all to settle down once

    Hi Tor: I have not been posting much on this board so have only now read your post. I am so sorry for your health woes. My Goodness you certainly have had your share of grief. I hope all is better and that you are now enjoying life. I send you my best wishes. STAY WELL. My husband has had a pacenaker for about three years and so far it has worked. So

    Thank you for the reply. I guess I can go ahead with radiation and assume all will be okay.

  • Radiation after breast cancer......

    I am a type 2 on INSULIN. I have breast cancer and had a lumpectomy along with 10 nodes removed. 2 of the 10 were cancer. The next step is radiation. The side effects can be worse for a diabetic, since this needs a healthy immune system to fight the effects of the radiation. Radiation only affects the breast and the hope of not allowing another cancer

  • SURGERY on insulin

No food from midnight and then nothing the day of surgery perhaps until 5.00PM I fear low blood sugars? My usual procedure is Lantus 20 units PM.....before bed Humalog 10 units before breakfast, then a shot before

  • Re: Seasons's greetings from Vancouver

    I am so sorry to read about your losses. I admire you for being so positive and upbeat and feel certain that next year will be one of full recovery, both mentally and monetarily. No one causes someone to do what Vida did and her family must realize that fact. She made that decision alone. I realize that when tragedy hits it is far easier to find blame

  • Re: STEROIDS Side effects diabetes ?

    Thanks for the comments Spirit. NO he is not off the steroids. It is the steroids that are keeping him out of pain. I have read about the fact that when off the steroids that the BS may go back to normal BUT that depends on how long one has been on the steroids. My husband has no family history of diabetes and is very thin. Has been 150 pounds for over

    My husband a non diabetic has had a bad bout with a painful shoulder and arm and has been put on a steroid drug to relieve the pain. The pain has been cured, and now he has very high blood sugar reading like 250 to 300 two hours after a meal. This is some meals with 1/2 baked potato and meat and a small salad.
