Learning About Diabetes Diagnosis, Treatment and Research

Welcome to my site, my name is Jess Indaja. I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes after struggling with my weight throughout my teen years and adulthood. My doctor informed me about all of the dangers associated with my diet and exercise habits. I was encouraged to change the way I ate and moved in an effort to reverse my blood sugar problem. I made the changes, but still struggle with controlling my blood sugar. After going through this trying situation, I decided to make a site that may help others with problems associated with type 2 diabetes. I will discuss diagnostic procedures, treatments and medical research concerning this disease. I hope you visit often and learn all you can to control your type 2 diabetes or help others with this condition.

Reasons To See A Neurology Specialist

by Carla Hudson

Neurology is the branch of medicine that deals with diagnosing and treating disorders of the brain, spinal cord, and nerves. A neurology specialist, or neurologist, is a doctor who can evaluate, diagnose, and manage various neurological conditions.

Here are some reasons why you may want to see a neurology specialist.

Chronic Headaches

If you have chronic or severe headaches, such as migraines, a  neurologist can help you identify the triggers and preventives of your head pain. They can also prescribe medications or other therapies to relieve your discomfort.

Neuropathic Pain

Neuropathic pain is pain caused by nerve damage from injury or disease, such as diabetes. Neuropathic pain can be sharp, shooting, or burning, and does not respond well to common painkillers. A neurologist can offer you specialized treatments for your nerve pain, such as anticonvulsants, antidepressants, or nerve blocks.


Seizures occur when your brain activity incurs disturbances. The disturbances can cause strange sensations, uncontrolled movements, or loss of consciousness.

Seizures can have many causes, such as epilepsy, stroke, brain injury, or infection. A neurologist can perform tests to identify the cause of your seizures and prescribe medications or procedures to prevent or reduce them.

Injuries to the Brain or Spinal Cord

Brain or spinal cord injuries commonly result from car accidents, falls, contact sports, or violent trauma.

Brain injuries can cause uncomfortable symptoms, such as headaches, dizziness, memory loss, behavior changes, or seizures. Spinal cord injuries frequently cause weakness, numbness, paralysis, or bladder problems.

A neurologist can create a treatment plan for your recovery and coordinate your care with other specialists, such as physical therapists, psychologists, or surgeons.

Multiple Sclerosis (MS)

Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a chronic condition that affects your brain and spinal cord. It causes inflammation and damage to the protective covering of your nerve fibers, resulting in symptoms such as vision problems, fatigue, muscle spasms, numbness, or tingling. A neurologist can help you manage your MS with medications that reduce inflammation, prevent relapses, or slow down disease progression.


Alzheimer's disease or other forms of dementia are progressive disorders that affect your memory, thinking, and behavior. Alzheimer's disease is a type of dementia that commonly occurs in older adults. If you suffer from dementia, a neurologist can help you diagnose your condition and offer you treatments that may improve your cognitive function, mood, or quality of life.

To have your condition assessed, schedule a consultation with a neurologist in your local area.
