Low Blood Glucose Non Dx



I understand that hypoglycemia is NOT diabeties but it is a symptom of an underlying cause.

Has anyone had hypoglycemia while on active duty and eventually dx'd and compensated for it? and if so what was the connection?

Thanks I just was curious. I think my pancreous is having issues, now with my blood sugar being high. It never was high before and my body is not responding well to the metformin.

Pete how are your numbers now? What did the glucose tolerance test show? I need to speak with my Endo about getting one. My blood sugar was a 58 then the next time just jumped way up for no reason except I did have those epidural shots for my back pain but this has been about a year now.

I used to have good control but lately not good at all. I am starting to believe that the insulin I get from the VA is no good. Is it paranoia or what. How can I find out?

I get my insulin delivered by mail and it always comes warm.

Insulin is supposed to say cold. I couldn't find any temp guildines here it says do not store in a car. I am on Testosterone and would never do the mail delivery with that nor any other hormone. I know you do what you have do do, I did think about the tricare mail order program for spring, fall and winter it might be okay but summer wouldn't work well. The one thing I read is 104 degrees is the highest it should ever get....I'm not sure what part of the county you are in, I think maybe TX but in know here it was over that a few times plus the heat being in the delivery vehicle with no a/c.

Anyhow there are a lot of questions all over.

Please stay up on your numbers.

"Do no leave insulin in the car. The heat inside a car can be damaging to the potency whether it is from exposure to the sun or confinement in the glove compartment"

    • I filed for my mitral valve regurgitation heart disease secondary to a service-connected condition on 7-30-18. It was granted on 8-30-18. Since I filed for this heart valve issue and was awarded, can I still file for hypertension ? I have been seeing comments that you should file for hypertension first and file for heart disease as a secondary. Can I file for hypertension as a secondary to my heart disease ? I am alittle confused on this matter.

    • I am a 100% disabled veteran, At first I was super excited to find out I am getting retro pay for back benefits to 2006. But that was over 2 months ago. I been waiting and waiting and calling to ask them wheres my back pay. They first told me "one month" than I call again. The guy started reading a script of basically "we are malingering on paying you" type crap. I was wondering if there is any number I can call besides that 800-827-1000 number to inquire about my status. I don't know why its taken so long when there is specific information telling them from the judge that VA owes. 

      There was a remanded to see if I was eligible for IU (I get it now since 2014 im actually 90% with 10 of that been IU). I been on SS since 2004. Can Someone help me out? Thank you

    • You might have a 38 CFR 3.156 situation-

      meaning the VA might have considered your claim in 95/96 as "not well grounded" and failed to even get your STRs.Or they did get your STRs but never considered the specific entry you cited here.

      Lots of discussion under a search, of 38 CFR. 3.156 (a)(b) (c) ---here is a winner:
