8 of Your Most Embarrassing Body Questions Answered: Diabetes Forecast®

"You can't possibly embarrass your physician," assures Nicholas Argento, MD, CDTC, diabetes technology director and a senior endocrinologist at Maryland Endocrine and Diabetes in Columbia, Maryland, who has type 1 diabetes.
"Ask questions at the beginning of the visit instead of waiting until the doctor is nearly out the door," says Argento. "Divulging what's happening in the bathroom can lead to the quick fix of changing medication or dosing," says Argento. "There are also lifestyle and dietary changes, like gluten-free eating, to alleviate that type of discomfort, but your doctor can't suggest them if he isn't aware of your symptoms," says Argento. All that extra glucose in the area makes the vagina the perfect growth environment for yeast that causes infections, Argento says. Over-the-counter treatments can alleviate symptoms, but Argento suggests talking to your doctor to discuss all possible causes and treatments-including a change in medicine. Learn more about yeast infection prevention. Why Have I Lost That Lovin' Feeling? A: Sexual dysfunction is very common in both men and women with diabetes. This can be a side effect of medicines, such as anti-depressants, used to control issues related to diabetes. But Argento says diabetic neuropathy (nerve damage that can cause loss of sensation), older age, low testosterone (for men), and depression can all lead to sexual dysfunction. "Keeping mum on what's happening in the bedroom prevents your doctor from helping determine what treatments, including switching prescriptions, might be effective to get your sex life back on track," says Argento. "Statins are widely prescribed to both type 1 and type 2 diabetics because diabetes tends to lower levels of good cholesterol while elevating levels of bad cholesterol," says Argento. But one of the drugs' unexplained rare side effects is leg muscle problems, especially at night. Mention any leg problems to your doctor. If statins are to blame, you may need to shift when you take the medicine, the dose, or the type of statin you use. No matter what the topic, Argento underscores the importance of clear communication with your doctor. "Even if a patient's question falls outside my area of expertise, I'd rather them pose it to me so I know there's a potential issue and can direct them to a possible solution or source or an answer," he says. So fear not! Muster up the courage and speak up at your next exam.


Top 20 Diabetes Questions | Diabetic Living Online

A: "While diabetes is an endocrine disease and falls under the specialty of an endocrinologist, there are only 3,000 of us in the U.S. who treat diabetes," says Nicholas Argento, M.D., an endocrinologist with Maryland Endocrine near Baltimore who has type 1 diabetes.
Do the math: 25 million people have diabetes; there are not nearly enough endocrinologists. "Most people with type 2 diabetes, especially in the early years, can partner with a primary care provider who takes an active interest in their diabetes," Argento says.
