Diabetes often miscliagnosed By Larcnce I.amb M.D. Dear Dr. I.amh As I re- call it, in an article some time ago, you said that dia- betes was often wTpngfully diagnosed. Is it possible to be diagnosed as being dia- betic when one is not? Dear Reader Yes, it cer- tainly is and it often happens. Years ago some patients where diagnosed as diabetic merely because they had sugar In the urine. Actually anyone can have the sugar In the urine from eating a large amount o! sweets, which are absorted quickly. The excess sugar will be washed out through the kid- neys. This is one of the me- chanisms that the body has for controlling the level of the blood sugar. Today, I think the most common cause of an incorrect diagnosis is related to the way the blood sugar levels are test- ed in the laboratory. Many dia- betics have a normal fasting blocd sugar and to detect those a glucose tolerance test (sugar tolerance test) is often done. After a fasting blood sugar specimen is taken the person drinks sugar water. Since it is liquid it moves quickly to the intestine and is absorbed di- rectly into the bloodstream. This causes the blood sugar level to rise sharply. In a normal person by two hours the blood sugar level will be approximately the same as the fasting level. A diabetic will have a high blood sugar level which stays higher than nor- mal past the two-hour period. All of this indicates that there is not enough insulin for this person to clear the blood of the excess amount of sugar; hence, the diagnosis of diabetes. The problem is that there are other things besides diabetes that can cause the blood sugar level to go too high and stay too high past the Uvo-hour Interval. The most common one of Uiese is carbohydrate s t a r v a tlon. Many people, when they gel ready to go lo the doctor for an examination, try to lose weight before the doctor sees them. To do this they eb'minate sugar and carbohydrates from their diet. If the body is not accustomed t o metabolizing carbohydrates, it gets lazy anc quits producing as much in suiin as it usually does, fn this relatively dormant state when the patient drinks a lo of sugar water the body doesn' put out enough insulin and as a result the sugar tolerance tes looks like that in a diabetic tes even though there isn't really anything with the pa tient, To avoid this problem throe days before you go in for ac tual testing eat a diet contains a reasonable amoun of carbohydrates. This include, bread, potatoes, things mad with sugar including dessert or even candy bars. This wa the hotly will be able to spee up insular production and car handle the sugar in the tost A normal individual will the have a normal sugar toleranc test.

Other- wise, we might lump the this- tles and cactuses, the roses and Ihe bramble bushes together in one family. But scientists use more subtle features to classify the plants in related groups.
