Prediabetes and Chronic Kidney Failure

Does anyone in this group have these two conditions.....Prediabetes and Chronic Kidney Failure? I would love to connect with people who do have these two conditions. I am trying to put a diet together that would satisfy both and would like to know what others are doing. I'm not on any meds yet but I am trying to manage it so that I don't need them. See More

What are the symptons of Diabetes?

According to the British Health service the symptoms of type 1 and type 2 diabetes are similar. However, type 1 diabetes usually develops suddenly over weeks or even days.

Many people have type 2 diabetes for years without knowing it because early symptoms can be vague and may not seem important at the time.

It’s important to seek medical advice if you think you might have signs of diabetes. Early diagnosis reduces your risk of developing complications.

Symptoms of diabetes can include:

feeling thirsty all the time,
frequent urination,
weight loss,
muscle wasting,
frequent infections or slow-healing sores,
itchiness around the vagina or penis,
regular episodes of thrush, and
blurred vision.
These symptoms may be due to other conditions, so it's important you seek medical advice and diagnosis.

Mydiabetes.com member loses 56Lbs

Alison set to share her slimming secrets

A slimmer who transformed her life by losing over 4 stone is using her success to shape a whole new career helping other people change their lives for the better too.

Alison Caton-Roberts (age 37) joined her local Slimming World group in Davyhulme ten months ago and dropped three dress sizes and four stones.

Now, she has trained as a Consultant for Slimming World, the UK’s leading slimming club, and members at the Flixton group are getting ready to welcome Alison as their new Consultant when she takes over the group on the 27th of July.

With the latest government figures revealing that over 50% of our population are now overweight or obese, Alison says her new role has never been more important.

She says: “Obesity is becoming such a huge issue across the UK. When I first joined Slimming World as a member, I never… Continue

Neuropathy or Nerve damage

Nerve Damage (Neuropathy)

According to the Accuchek web site

"Neuropathy" is a broad word like "animal." It includes a wide range of subcategories that can look as different from one another as a cat and an elephant. Neuropathy, after all, simply means "nerve disease." Because nerves carry all the information about physical sensation and motor instruction between the brain and every part of the body, nerve damage can affect you from your teeth to your toes.

For one person it can mean numbness in the toes, while another person will simply feel "full" sooner than they should. That's why it's smart to have a good idea of the feelings and symptoms associated with nerve damage. Armed with the right information, you can be on guard against neuropathy and take steps to protect yourself.

What exactly is Neuropathy?

Total Pancreatectomy and Islet Cell Transplant.

Hi ,
I would love to hear if anyone else has under gone a total pancreatectomy and or an islet cell transplant ?

I had mine in June 2005 - it took 12 hours of surgery and 3 subsequent operations to date.

Becoming diabetic was a forgone conclusion of the surgery obviously and NO I was not an alcoholic as most people ( including medical professionals ) seem to think. I was born with a rare pancreatatic abnormality, so chronic pancreatitus has been a constant problem from birth.

It would be good to know if any one else has had the same or similar please. Thanks Debbie
