From this study (3 days ago):
can my son also take metoclopramide
From this study (7 days ago):
My dad has been diabetic for about9 yrs now and started on Huminsulin then. However for the last 6 yrs he has been on Novorapid and Lantus.
Now I am suspecting a probable Somogyi effect,for the last 3 - 4 months.This started after a recent bout of hypoglycaemia during the day when the blood sugar levels went down to 40 and he had to be revived with Intravenous glucose at a hospital
Ever since his sugars have been uncontrolled with the sugars being low at about 03.00 A.M. and at about 07.00 A.M. it could be as high as 180. Alteration in the doses of Novorapid and Lantus somehow does not look like it is working and is erratic. How do we address this.
From this study (2 weeks ago):
My daughter was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease 5 years ago and began treatment with Humira and Methotrexate about two years ago. Three months ago our doctor discovered and surgically removed three (3) enlarged lymph nodes in left side of neck. She has intermittent moderate pain in right side of neck around the area of her carotid artery but no abnormal lymph nodes. Pain increases when doctor pressed on carotid artery.
