Hey Kenny

have you had a diabetes test? Blood sugars do go up and down  but you said 10.2 I think and I
have to keep mine around 6 I was told. seem to be managing 6.2 but still losing/having some
odd sensation/loss in my fingers (I need to go back). Suggest you have a diabetes test mate -
I admit I became diabetic purely to get the free prescriptions  %% O0

Ken

I agree with Norseman - you should mention that reading to your G.P. (and I suspect Godo has said the same).

The Blood/Sugar levels are a topic of conversation all the time in our household as we have this little machine the measures it.  I made a mistake with my figures as my reading was 7.2  (it's still in the memory thank goodness).

I shall try a fresh reading first thing in the morning and not in the evening after a glutinous day.  %)  but to be certain, I shall take Godo's advice and consult the Doctor to make sure.

All this typing is making my one and a half eyes dizzy.    %)

cheers

Thanks Jon

Gentlemen, we have the definitive answer.  The results of tests show that I have
 
            Posterial Vitreous Detatchment.

What's that, I hear you say.  :}   It seem that the inside of the eyeball has started to break away from the skull and torn at the connecting wires and allowed a floater into the back of the eyeball. This will move with out a care in the world and appear sometimes in the vision as a small furry cloud.

They have sent me on my way all smiles and relief and told to live with it.  8)  Hey Ho. the wonders of modern science. I am allowed to drive and lead a normal life, so it's back to the workshop for me.

                       

Regards to you all and thank you for your interest.

                                     Next case please.

Ken


At least you now know what is happening and when it does return from time to time, you can manage it and ignore the "floater", blemish when you are painting.
Seems to be worse the more fatigued you become.
No doubt the body saying, give me a break, have a rest. O0 O0 O0 O0

I must agree with having ones Prostate PSA levels checked.
I had my Prostate out over 10 years ago and with zero readings for 6 years was told I was cured.
The readings came back after 8 years and I am now on female hormone treatment with its attendant "Hot Flushes".
My specialist says that I will last at least 20 years.
What other doctor will give you 20 years?   ok2  %%

Agree abouit prostate (why do so many people spell it prostrate?)

But isn't it odd that the initial investigation for a possible prostate problem has exactly tha same effect as having eye drops for an eye examination? Both really cause your pupils to dilate...  :o

This is absolutely true
John first had a camera up his rear
I later had one inserted via the front
Tommy was then told he needed to swallow a camera

He came into work this day and told us all about it
and when we said
'you know they've only got the one camera Tommy'
He threw up there and then  O0 {-) {-) {-) {-)

John you look so forlorn and helpless
Good job you're not a woman -

Cooking Cleaning Ironing can all be done single handed
even when pregnant with a few kids in tow ........   %)

But you're right - scale modelling is out of the question.  O0

Seriously though -
Let's hope it mends as quickly and as painlessly as possible.

There's some good advice about getting your prostate checked, even though the digital examination (no, this exam has nothing to do with computers %)) does tend to make your eyes bulge, as Colin suggests. Together with regular PSA blood tests it's a good way to ensure that any prostate problems are caught early.

Similarly, anyone with a family history of bowel cancer should have regular colonoscopies. In fact, it's a good idea to ask your doctor if you should have one, even if there is no family history, because bowel cancer is easily cured if detected early.

OK, I have to do it , the true is that any male from 38 years old have to do the blood test of Antigen Prostático Específico or PSA once every year, the number that a man WITHOUT any health issue in the prostatic gland=prostate is under 4nanograms, if the number is more than 8nanograms, the biopsy is mandatory, OK

Peter is quite correct. Too many men literally die of embarrassment. Your GP/Doctor is there to do a job, he/she's heard it all before so be completely straight with them otherwise they can't help you. They are non judgemental and won't tell your neighbours. If in doubt then check it out. That way you'll get to build more boats.

Peter, we seem to have had a shared experience - the fickle finger of fate!

Whilst PSA blood tests are to be encouraged, they will not detect an enlarged prostate. So don't rely on only PSA.

Sorry to say whether you like it or not, as Peter mentions, a physical digital examination is absolutely necessary.

Don't shirk it, get it done.

Too true, Colin.

I have been told by my doctor that, at my age, I am more likely to die with bowel cancer than of it, so digital examinations are no longer necessary. I wondered if he knew something that I didn't, as I told him I was planning on being around for at least another 20 years. He merely laughed {:-{.

Yes, that's what people don't always appreciate these days. In earlier times few of them lived long enough to contract the medical conditions that now plague us.

The PSA is an biochemical product of any kind of problem in the gland, it is going to be more than 4 nano grams before the the digital test  can show something, OK

Well either my good lady misses her job in the surgery or she is a bit kinky as she is always looking for a box of latex gloves and
offering to carry out these intimate examinations on me
