How To Treat Cold Sores | How To Stop Getting Cold Sores | How To Prevent A Cold Sore When You Feel It Coming | Cold Sore Treatments Hey guys! This weeks video is about cold sores, how to prevent them and how to try and treat them. I couldn't find any information to clinically prove the effectiveness of some cold sore remedies seen online like distilled vinegar, witch hazel and alcohol, so I can't recommend them. But feel free to leave a comment if you've tried them to let us know how effective they were. WHAT ARE COLD SORES: About 1 in 5 people in the UK have recurring cold sores. Cold sores usually resolve on their own without treatment in 7-10 days. Cold sores, also known as fever blisters or oral herpes, are very common. They can be easy to recognise as they usually appear as red bumps or blisters around the lips and mouth. Cold sores are caused by herpes simplex virus 1 (HSV-1), the oral form of the virus. In fact, 67% of the world population under age 50 has HSV-1 because it is so contagious Once you are infected, the virus never leaves your body.

Cold Medicine & High Blood Sugars

Do cold medicines raise blood sugars? I've had a sinus infection for the last week and I am taking antibiotics and an over the counter cold and cough medicine. My tongue feels really gross so I tested andit was 304. I am drinking a ton of water and am considering going to the grocery store just to go walk this off. I am a type 2 that is taking byetta, metformin, and linisopril. I understand that blood sugars are usually elevated when you are sick, but I am feeling good and pretty much over this sinus thing and my bg's were better when I felt miserable days ago. Please help me figure this out!!! Member T1 since April 2002, started pump today! I have been taking cold and sinus medication as well and it also caused my BG to go up. I think it is normal for it to cause it to go up. You could try using a normal saline nasal spray. Maybe talk to your pharm for a suggestion. Do cold medicines raise blood sugars?

    Hi all,
    I bought some cold medication that contains: paracetamol, phenylephrine and guaifenesin. On the leaflet is says "do not take if you have diabetes" (along other medical conditions). I'm wondering - WHY? Is there any specific reason or is this just general "advice"? It's not even in the "take special care" section, but in the big bold "do not take".
    I know that there are other therapies/treatments for cold, I was just curious if there's anything special about those ingredients that can be "bad" for diabetics. I always assumed that if something can affect you BG, it would be in the "take care" section, and the "do not take" section was for serious, potentially life-threatening interactions.

    Click to expand... I agree with Kimbo on this, it's probably sugar content. I have just had a hacking cough and because of other medication I have to avoid decongestants so I bought a simple Buttercup syrup and it contained something like 62g of sugar per 5ml spoonful, the box also had a warning for diabetics. Thanks Kimbo I did not know there were sugar free cough medicines I will look into that

Common Blood Pressure Drug May Prevent Type 1 Diabetes

Common blood pressure drug may prevent type 1 diabetes Researchers from Colorado and Florida have found that a drug commonly used to control blood pressure could have another use: preventing and treating type 1 diabetes. Researchers have identified a blood pressure drug that could help to prevent type 1 diabetes. The new research co-authored by Dr. Aaron Michels, an associate professor of medicine at the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus in Aurora will be published in The Journal of Clinical Investigation. Type 1 diabetes is a condition in which the beta cells of the pancreas are unable to produce enough insulin , which is the hormone that regulates blood sugar levels. This is believed to be down to an autoimmune process, wherein the immune cells mistakingly attack and destroy beta cells. Around 5 percent of all diabetes cases are type 1. It is most commonly diagnosed during childhood, adolescence, or young adulthood, but it can develop at any age. While the exact causes of type 1 diabetes remain a mystery, Dr. Michels and team note that around 60 percent of those who are at risk of the condition possess a molecule called DQ8 which previous research has linked to the Continue reading >>

    This is a specific question for a certified MD, my father has type 2 and he has never made any decisions on medications without calling his local pharmacy/pharmacist or doctor first... I couldn't really tell you, not familiar with med's you are on and interactions... call a 24 hour pharmacy first and ask the man/woman who's going to know with certainty... licensed pro, very important when you take into the consideration of your conditions... please get back with us...

    Sorry, things are so much more complicated when you are dealing with diabetes. Even without that consideration, cough and cold meds are broken down by which specific symptoms you are experiencing. I agree, asking your doctor or pharmacist, who is familiar with what meds you are on is your best way to find out. Sorry I couldn't be more helpful.

    It is true that I am not a physician but just happen to have type 2 Diabetes and I do know that for a middle age woman with this condition Robitussin DM makes a sugar free cough medication, I would ask her pharmacist/or/doctor since you mentioned she has other medical conditions just to be sure that this will be fine with him. I hope this is valuable information but please be sure this is acceptable with the doctor.
