Diabetes Forum The Global Diabetes Community Find support, ask questions and share your experiences.

Xxx I'd say you need to see your GP ASAP - it could be nothing but that much fluid retention in your lower limbs is something you want to get sorted out Exactly what phil1966 said. Just do it now. as said, I would see a Dr and hope that it's just fluid, although serious enough and the Dr may give a diuretic. I just had a quick look at you past posting and issues. high BG can cause edema have you thought about changing your diet? some of it could a T2 metabolic syndrome/insulin resistance/inflammatory if nothing else, I would gut the grain and grain product for a month. I think T2 is 80% diet and 20% drugs and mild exercise I found the first two days were bad for starvation feelings, but day 3 they were gone, I no longer stand at the fridge again, 2 hrs after I eat I agree with the others, see a doctor ASAP. In the mean time get your legs as high as possible, preferably above the level of your hips when sitting and raised higher than the rest of your body when lying down. Remember that gravity is one of your worst enemies at times like this. Goodness me it does look swollen, agree with others that you should get your legs and feet looked at asap. looks quite red 2! may b celluitis,,,wotever it is,,see sumone today about it,,,dont hang about dude A new diuretic caused me oedema but that means a possible cause. See the doctor.. The most common causes of persistent oedema are kidney disease and congestive heart failure - note I said 'persistent' Hi bigrob I would see your Gp as possible, it could be fluid retention but you need to know wha Continue reading >>

Swollen Feet And Legs After Taking Lantus.

Swollen feet and legs after taking Lantus. Friend T1 since January 1999, on the pump. Swollen feet and legs after taking Lantus. Not too sure if this is where this should be posted or not, but maybe a month or two ago my feet and legs started to swell. I noticed that after taking Lantus after not taking it for months. I quit using the lantus and took Humalog before bed and I was fine. The swelling eventually went down. Well I decided to take my lantus again the other night and I woke up with swollen feet and legs again. Do you think I may be allergic to the Lantus? Because as long as I'm not using it I don't have this problem. I noticed my feet and legs swelling when I first began Lantus a couple years ago. Maybe this is something that needs to be taken up with my endocronologist. I've been drinking lots of water and the swelling seems to be going down now too. D.D. Family Getting much harder to control I have to agree with you time to talk to the doc. I have never had the issue with Lantus but I sure would talk to your doctor. yea.talk to the doc.something is going on. what we have here is a failure to communicate Friend T1 since January 1999, on the pump. Well it happened again. I quit taking the lantus and the swelling went down. Weird. Continue reading >>

Lantus And Leg Swelling | Diabetic Connect

Okay, I took my first Lantus injection last night. Didn't eat anything out of the ordinary yesterday. Just weighed and have gained 2-3 lbs. and my calves feel a little tight and swollen. Also, this morning my eyes felt a little runny and when I wiped my eyes it felt a little oily (although my vision is fine). Are these symptoms just my body's way of adjusting to the insulin? I don't have high blood pressure and my cholesterol is okay. I looked online and found swelling is a possible side effect I hate to stop taking it and hope this is just a temporary side effect. Anyone else experience this? Usually there are different reactions in different people when they start their insulin therapy. You should consult your physician, he must have seen people with similar experiences to help you out here. hi newsong53 I have been taking lantus 10 yrs body has to adjust if not tell your dr good luck!!! If the swelling continues with the Lantus, ask your doctor for a change to regular insulin. When I was taking Actos, my legs kept swelling more and more up my body until it reached my stomach and I could not bend my knees, ankles or even sit down. So I stopped it myself, told my doctor that after I stopped it, by the next day my swelling had already started to come down. So she changed me to regular insulin and that worked perfectly for me. My mom ended up with a bad case of edema with Actos. She had to use special cream to help her skin that had gotten so thin because of the swelling. It was really scary. Yup, thin skin. My legs are now so skinny and I have constant red legs as the little arteries and veins which are close to the surface show their color and my skin breaks easily. Looks like I am wearing red socks. I wear long dresses and skirts or slacks so that my legs don't show. Continue reading >>

Lantus (insulin Glargine) Side Effects

Lantus (insulin Glargine) Side Effects

What Is Lantus (Insulin Glargine)? Lantus is the brand name of insulin glargine, a long-acting insulin used to treat adults and children with type 1 diabetes mellitus and adults with type 2 diabetes mellitus to control high blood sugar. Lantus replaces the insulin that your body no longer produces. Insulin is a natural substance that allows your body to convert dietary sugar into energy and helps store energy for later use. In type 2 diabetes mellitus, your body does not produce enough insulin, or the insulin produced is not used properly, causing a rise in blood sugar. Like other types of insulin, Lantus is used to normalize blood sugar levels. Controlling high blood sugar helps prevent kidney damage, blindness, nerve problems, loss of limbs, and sexual dysfunction. Proper control of diabetes has also been shown to reduce your risk of a heart attack or stroke. Lantus is meant to be used alongside a proper diet and exercise program recommended by your doctor. Lantus is manufactured by Sanofi-Aventis. It was approved for use by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 2000 as the first long-acting human insulin administered once a day with a 24-hour sugar-lowering effect. Lantus Warnings You will be taught how to properly inject this medication since that is the only way to use it. Do not inject cold insulin because this can be painful. Always wash your hands before measuring and injecting insulin. Lantus is always clear and colorless; look for cloudy solution or clumps in the container before injecting it. Do not use Lantus to treat diabetic ketoacidosis. A short-acting insulin is used to treat this condition. It is recommended that you take a diabetes education program to learn more about diabetes and how to manage it. Other medical problems may affect the use of this Continue reading >>

Diabetes Drugs: Your Insulin Questions Answered

Diabetes Drugs: Your Insulin Questions Answered

Editor’s Note: This is the third post in our miniseries about diabetes drugs. Tune in on August 28 for the next installment. The first installment of our medicines miniseries, “Diabetes Drugs: Insulin,” yielded a variety of questions from readers. Here, we present a selection of these questions along with responses from Dr. Marino. My endocrinologist assures me that I have Type 2 diabetes because I have predominantly abdominal fat. Do you have any thoughts on this? The diagnosis of adult-onset diabetes is not always straightforward. There is a condition called latent autoimmune diabetes of adults, or LADA, that may occur in up to 10% of people with diabetes who initially do not require insulin. You should discuss this with your health-care provider; if appropriate, he could check for this condition with various blood tests. A diagnosis of LADA might have implications for your therapy, since there is some evidence that people with this condition have more of an insulin deficiency than people with Type 2 diabetes. However, no large studies have been done to help determine the best therapy for LADA. With that said, the goal is to optimize the current insulin therapy you are on. As mentioned in “Diabetes Drugs: Insulin,” the best method of insulin administration is to combine long-acting and rapid-acting insulin to provide good blood glucose control throughout the day without causing hypoglycemia (low blood glucose). I would suggest that you work closely with your health-care provider to optimize your blood glucose control. This may mean more frequent blood glucose measurements throughout the day to determine how to change your daily doses. Another option you may want to explore with your health-care provider is an insulin pump. And as always, a diet and exercise Continue reading >>

Lantus And Leg Swelling | Diabetic Connect

Has anyone who uses Lantus had a problem with their legs swelling at all? I have recently switched to Lantus and have had some leg swelling issues since I have been using the Lantus. Thanks, Sheryl I notice when my doctor increased my lantus that my calves really swelled up and was painful to walk. I have been on lantus since 2003. They always go right to salt and food portions. I eat better than anyone and always make my own healthy lunches. Salads and proteins. So it made sense so I decreased my lantus and my swelling went back to normal. I am thinking I better go to an endocrinologist asap. I have been on Lantus for about a month. Keep increasing the dosage to 30u. I noticed that my ankles and feet began to swell. Didn't think much of it because I had been using the product for a while. Then in the last 4 days the swelling because serious. To the point that it was very painful to walk. So I have been on the recliner for 3 days with my feet elevated to relieve the swelling. Somewhat better this morning so I went to the doctor and got a steroid shot and antibiotic because she thought it may be an infection. I HAVE BEEN ON LANTUS A FEW YEARS I HAVE HAD NO PROBLEMS WITH THE LEGS SWELLING. When Doc put me on Lantus my ankles got about twice their normal size and swelled out the tops of my shoes. He took me off of it and put me on something else. He tried me on a diuretic first but it didn't get any better so that was the ultimate outcome. Marked my file as allergic to Lantus. You might want to discuss whether it is an allergic reaction with your doctor. Continue reading >>
