Can you answer these questions (Ask a question):
- Can i connect by email with other patients that have hypoglycemia and stevens-johnson syndrome? (1 answer)
I have had hypoglycemia since childhood, and I have managed it easily until just this weekend. I got S-J two years ago from Bactrim. As I have healed from S-J very slowly and painfully, I was exercising hard, and working hard and slipped a little on not eating enough protein. I started dropping into sugar blackouts and it scared the crap out of me! Still working at being able to eat enough to straighten out low sugar levels. Any suggestions helpful, Thanks, Leann
- Hot flashes with palpitations and impending doom feelings (1 answer)
I have suffered from chemotherapy premature menopause for 10 years causing hot flashes with severe palpitations, panic, muscle weakness and fatigue; also come after anaerobic exercise with breathlessness. Any physical stress and anxiety will provoke them. I also get low blood sugar.
I'm looking into thiamine deficiency as I also have irritable bowel symptoms and pass large amounts of urine which may deplete my levels.
- What studies have been done for the hypoglycemia/lipoma connection because i have both
I have hypoglycemia (not diabetes related) that I was told is caused by faulty protein digestion. I also have numerous lipomas in my thighs. I also have degenerative discs in my back as well as hip arthritis. I would like to know how to deal with these problems. The hypoglycemia, which causes me shortness of breath, seems to run in the family since my son also has it. I tried a vegan diet and my hypoglycemia got worse.
- Does carafate interfere with benicar?
Benicar 20 mg. I am confused about the order in which I take these drugs due to conflicting answers from pharmacists. SInce taking carafate my bp has gone as high as 168/90 on one occasion last night. It is usually 120-125/75-80. I'm concerned that carafate may be blocking benicar even though I take benicar 1.5 hours after taking carafate. High bp has also coincided with my return to moderate toning exercise at the gym. If anyone can help me understand what I might be doing wrong, I would most appreciate it.
- Is elevated creatinine while taking pantoprazole serious?
I noticed my Gfr test came in less than 60 and my creatinine value, usually .7 to .8 was now 1. I have been taking Pantoprazole for a month and must take it for another month since I had multiple bleeding gastric ulcers. Is this an indication of potential kidney damage?

From this study (1 month ago):
I am a Type 1 diabetic on insulin pump therapy with the continuous glucose monitoring link. I also take a Sertraline pill a day to take the edge off, but do not always take it on time during the hectic weekends/holidays. The past 2 days (day 3 and 4 of Tamiflu medication) had episodes where my blood sugar plummeted and I experienced very altered states -- last night it was dream-like and I blacked out/don't remember about an hour with my family and today it was emotional and fitful.
