Default Antibodies positive for MG

Hi new to the forum.

I was diagnosed with T2 diabetes in November 2017. I went keto and sorted that out.

A weeks before Christmas 2018 my jaw stopped working and couldn't speak or eat without supporting it.

I had a generalized weakness which I never mentioned because everyone jumps on the diet.

Yesterday the neuro told me antibodies positive and I have started steroids and a raft of other stuff today. Last Friday I had a diabetic retinopathy exam, since then I have had raging double vision.

I have no trouble with swallowing or breathing so far. My biggest challenge for now is trying to keep blood sugars and weight within acceptable levels.

I am in the north west of the UK.

Any suggestions will be gratefully received.

My Mood: Antibodies positive for MG
Default

Hi pishpash

Welcome to NeuroTalk .

I know about the antibodies involved in MG from a basic science perspective but not from a clinical point of view.

I am sure that other members will be able to offer you support and good ideas.

Best wishes.

Welcome to the forum. Be careful with the steroids as they can elevate your blood sugar. Jim
