Back to Ask the Diabetes Team Complications - 2010

Complications from 2010

  1. I have heard that blood sugar fluctuations can cause long term damage. What is the latest research on this? Are blood swings just as detrimental as high A1cs? (8 Dec 2010)
  2. My eight-year-old daughter's last urine test showed protein. Can the protein be there because my daughter was not fasting? If further tests show protein, what's next? (6 Nov 2010)
  3. My teen daughter has been taking lisinopril for kidney damage. Despite working hard to control her diabetes, recent tests were still elevated. Why is this? (20 Oct 2010)
  4. I was diagnosed with neuropathy, presumably connected to my diabetes. If I continue to improve the control of my diabetes, might I reverse or slow its progression? (11 Aug 2010)
  5. I have a large varicose vein on my pelvic bone. My doctor said this is probably a complication of my type 1 diabetes. Is this possible? (10 Aug 2010)
  6. I started an ACE inhibitor due to high albumin. My albumin is now fine, but my creatinine was low. What does this mean? Am I doing ok, as my doctor has indicated? (27 Jul 2010)
  7. Diagnosed with gastroparesis, my daughter has been placed on a feeding tube. She is still having difficulties. Is there a more effective way of treating this? (5 May 2010)
  8. The cardiologist thinks my son's microalbuminuria might be sports related, while the nephrologist disagrees. How do we determine its cause? (12 Feb 2010)
  9. Can long term use of metformin cause kidney damage? If so, will the damage reverse itself after stopping metformin? (6 Jan 2010)
  10. I've had diabetes for 10 years. Twice, I have had abnormal spot urine tests, but a normal 24-hour test. The doctor wants me on an ACE inhibitor. Can diet affect the deterioration of the kidneys? (5 Jan 2010)
