Diabetes And Gerd: Diagnosis And Treatments

Diabetes And Gerd: Diagnosis And Treatments

Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) is no picnic, as many of you have attested to. Finding out that you have the condition is the first step; the second step is treating it. Constantly popping antacids is, at best, a Band-Aid, and it may not help. As I mentioned last week, if you have been bothered by symptoms of GERD (heartburn, feeling acid backing up into your throat, tightness in your throat, hoarseness, shortness of breath, or a bitter taste in your mouth), don’t delay: Talk with your health-care provider. Treating this condition promptly and effectively is important. I also mentioned that GERD seems to be more common in people with Type 2 diabetes. This may be, in part, due to being overweight, but it may also stem from having neuropathy, or nerve damage. Gastroparesis, a type of neuropathy, can contribute to GERD. All the more reason to report any symptoms to your provider. Diagnosis of GERD If you report any of the above symptoms to your health-care provider, he may start you right away on some form of treatment. Or, depending on the severity of your symptoms, you may be sent to a gastroenterologist for certain tests to confirm GERD and rule out other conditions. Typical tests include an upper GI series, which are x-rays of your esophagus, stomach, and part of your intestines. You may have an endoscopy, in which a tube with a little camera at the end is passed down your throat to look for signs of damage from acid reflux. Or you might have a test called esophageal manometry, which measures how well the esophagus and the lower esophageal sphincter are working. Finally, you might also be given a 24-hour pH probe study, which measures how often you have acid reflux over the course of a day. Medical Treatments GERD is similar to diabetes in that it’s a chroni Continue reading >>

Just started taking metformin 1/2 a tablet 3 times a day. 750 mg - I have noticed that I have to run to the washroom frequently is this common and does it last for ever or just until you get used to the pills? MOST people will adjust to it and see the problems subside after a month or two. I never did get "adjusted" to regular metformin, so my Endo put me on the exteded release version. After trying several brands and playing with the timing of the pills, I'm getting along pretty well with ER metformin (Glumetza) these days. Some folks swear they HAVE to take their metformin with their meals or they will have problems, others seem to do better taking it quite a bit before meals. I take my entire extended dose at night, right before bed. Works great for me now, but wouldn't work unless you were on the extended version. Give it a little while and see if it gets better. Plus there's a good chance you may need to increase your dose at some point and the "problems" might start all over again. If it continues, talk to your doctor about trying the extended release version. I take my metformin just before eating breakfast and then just before bedtime. I've recently switched to the metformin ER and do like it better as my blood sugars stay more "level." I did have the gastric side effects the first couple of weeks, but nothing unmanagable. Even now, if I eat something higher carb, I will feel somewhat "sweaty/ill" for a few minutes. Takes 3 weeks for metformin to reach optimal results in your body...if your symptoms should last longer than that, i'd call my doctor to see if the extended relief might w Continue reading >>

I just read on the bottle of antacids that it may interfere with some prescription drugs. Anyone know if it's fine to take antacids while taking Metformin? I assume it is, but you should ask your doctor as antacid drugs vary. For example, my doctor put me on Metformin one week and Protonix (a proton pump inhibitor) for severe gastritis the following week. It seems if lowering stomach acid would cause a problem he wouldn't have done it, but TUMS is probably totally different. I have heard about it too. I know its amazing. Well just give it a try.

Does anyone have any tips on taking metformin? I started my metformin, half a pill, and it has been awful. Lots of stomach upset, which I was told to expect, but I was wondering if there was any way I could stop those symptoms. I'm only on 1/2 a pill and at this rate, I will be 80 by the time I get up to the four pills per day that my doctor wants. Did anything work for you in preventing the side effects? My first book will be coming out in 2010, hopefully just in time for baby #3. There's really no way to make the side effects stop but there are things you can do to help alleviate them some. Some ladies have had good results by taking Imodium. I've never used it but when I was taking met I found it easier to take my met in the MIDDLE of my meals. I took it at lunch so I would eat half of my lunch, take my pill then eat the rest of my lunch. It really helped with the bathroom runs. And rest assured the side effects do ease up as your body gets used to the met. It took me about a month but other ladies see results within a couple weeks. Thanks. I will have to try mid meal.

Glucophage Users May Have Low Vitamin B12 Tums Could Provide Relief

Glucophage Users May Have Low Vitamin B12 Tums Could Provide Relief

Glucophage Users May Have Low Vitamin B12 Tums Could Provide Relief A Tums a day could keep B12 malabsorption away, say researchers who studied the effects of metformin on vitamin B12 absorption. Metformin, sold under the brand name Glucophage, is an oral agent prescribed for type 2 diabetes. In a study of 14 people who switched from sulfonylureas to Glucophage and a control group of seven individuals who remained on sulfonylureas, researchers found that the Glucophage group experienced reduced levels of vitamin B12. Researchers publishing in the September 2000 issue of Diabetes Care say there is evidence that vitamin B12 is not being properly absorbed in up to 30 percent of people who take Glucophage on a continuing basis. In their study, they found that inadequate absorption from the intestinal tract is apparently caused by altered intestinal calcium metabolism. Baseline measurements taken at the beginning of the study showed no significant difference in the total serum vitamin B12 absorption between the groups. Serum vitamin B12 is the total amount of B12 found in the bloodstream. However, after three months of Glucophage therapy, the group showed a drop in serum vitamin B12 of more than 25 percent. At the same time, the amount of B12 that was absorbed into the body fell by about 36 percent. The good news is that daily supplements of 1.2 grams per day of calcium carbonate in the form of Tums partially reversed the drop in B12 absorbtion, by about 27 percent. Vitamin B12 is necessary for the formation of red blood cells. B12 deficiency can lead to memory loss, fatigue and mental confusion. It can also result in peripheral nerve damage, which could be confused with nerve damage caused by diabetes. Researchers say Glucophage may act as a calcium channel blocker.

Comparative Effects Of Metformin And Pioglitazone On Ykl-40 In Type 2 Diabetes: A Randomized Clinical Trial.

Comparative Effects Of Metformin And Pioglitazone On Ykl-40 In Type 2 Diabetes: A Randomized Clinical Trial.

Comparative effects of metformin and pioglitazone on YKL-40 in type 2 diabetes: a randomized clinical trial. Endocrinology and Metabolism Research Center (EMRC), School of Medicine, Vali-Asr Hospital, Tehran University of Medical Sciences, P.O. Box 13145-784, Tehran, Iran, [email protected] J Endocrinol Invest. 2014 Dec;37(12):1211-8. doi: 10.1007/s40618-014-0154-x. Epub 2014 Aug 20. PURPOSE: Metformin and pioglitazone are believed to exert their long-term benefits by means of amelioration of chronic low-grade inflammation, a key event in development of diabetes and its long-term complications. The present trial was designed to investigate the comparative efficacy of the two anti-diabetes medications on serum concentrations of YKL-40, a novel marker of inflammation. METHODS: In a parallel-group, open-label, randomized trial setting (ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier No. NCT01521624), 84 newly diagnosed, medication-nave type 2 diabetes patients were assigned to metformin 1,000 mg daily (n = 42) or pioglitazone 30 mg daily (n = 42). Serum concentrations of YKL-40, along with highly sensitive C-reactive protein, indices of glycemic control and lipid profile were measured at baseline and after 3 months. RESULTS: In the analyzed sample (metformin = 40, pioglitazone = 42), both medications were equally effective with regard to control of hyperglycemia, and hsCRP reduction (p > 0.05). However, metformin caused a significant decline in weight (p = 0.005), BMI (p = 0.004), and total cholesterol levels (p = 0.028) of the patients. Metformin also significantly reduced YKL-40 concentrations after 3 months (1.90 17 vs. 1.66 0.15 g/L, p = 0.019). The amount of change in the pioglitazone arm did not reach statistical significance (2.18 0.14 vs. 2.25 0.16 g/L, p = 0.687). When compa Continue reading >>

Metformin And B12

Metformin And B12

Back in December 2006, Amy Campbell wrote in her blog about the possibility of the popular diabetes drug metformin causing vitamin B12 deficiency. In a follow-up comment, she mentioned that taking calcium supplements might help to remedy this deficiency. The information spurred an outpouring of comments and questions from concerned readers, so those of us on the magazine staff decided to investigate the matter further. Our Q&A editor, Alwa Cooper, contacted Mariejane Braza, MD, and James F. Hanley, MD, of the UTHSCSA-Regional Academic Health Center in Harlingen, Texas, who had recently conducted some research on the topic of metformin and vitamin B12 deficiency. As published in the November/December 2009 issue of Diabetes Self-Management, here is their answer: “Metformin is an important and effective medicine for the treatment of Type 2 diabetes; however, with prolonged use, as many as 30% of the people taking it develop a B12 deficiency. It has been our experience that not all physicians are aware of this association. Detecting B12 deficiency can be difficult, because the early symptoms, such as fatigue or loss of appetite, may be subtle. Other symptoms, such as numbness or tingling in the hands and feet, may be assumed to be complications of diabetes. In a study that we conducted, peripheral neuropathy (nerve damage in the hands, feet, and legs) was more common in subjects with both Type 2 diabetes and B12 deficiency than in those with Type 2 diabetes alone. Prior to our study, it was presumed that these participants’ neuropathy was a complication of their diabetes. We felt, however, that it was not clear whether this was the case or whether B12 deficiency had played a role in or caused the development of the neuropathy. Testing for B12 deficiency may not always b Continue reading >>
