Mar 8, 2019 · Video Q&A about Endoscopic Sleeve Gastroplasty in Healthy Living

I have a question. I need to lose at least 100 pounds and even when trying hard to do so, I never lose any weight and continue to gain.

Jan 26, 2019 · Trouble with everyday realities of diabetes in Diabetes/Endocrine System

I have also been a type II diabetic for at least 18 years. My sugars are still uncontrolled and sometimes I am like you and get tired of trying and eat the wrong foods. Sometimes you have to have something good. I have found a program on the internet called my diabetes home. It lets you enter your blood sugars, doctors, meds, and doctor visits. I have found it very forthcoming as it also tells you your A1 c by your readings. It lets you know when you are having the most problems and I am hoping that it will encourage me to do better in taking care of my diabetes. I have neuropathy in my hands, feet and arms and it is very painful. It has also led to NASH and then to cirrhosis of the liver. So, if I can encourage you in any way to try to control your diabetes then I would be very happy. Please go to: http://www.mydiabeteshome.com and give it a try. Good luck in the future with your diabetes. Molly B 1968

I take Ranexa 500 mg twice daily. He does help my heart pounding but I also have QT prolongation. My tongue has a white coated film on it and even with brushing my tongue and mouthwash I have a hot taste in my mouth. Any correlation, I don’t know. If I can be of any help, please let me know.
