Dr. Edward M. Condon, M.D., F.A.C.E., E.C.N.U.'s Expert Contributions
One of the most important accomplishments at Condon Medical has been the discovery and publication of the differences in caloric metabolism in diabetes and prediabetes vs. people not at risk for these disorders. This has resulted in the strong support for early treatment of prediabetes and other...
Your doctor should measure your own levels but checking your c-peptide. C peptide is part of the insulin molecule not found in commercial preparations. If you make substantial c-peptide your endocrinologist can probably get you off insulin. READ MORE
Insulin absolutely causes weight gain by stimulating appetite and making everythin you eat get absorbed. Most endocrinologists will try hard not to use insullin if you are gaining weight. READ MORE
This depends on whom you see. The new guidelines for the American Association of Clinical Endocrinology would recommend treatment of a pre diabetic to prevent the patient from becoming an actual diabetic. READ MORE
Type 1 is caused by a genetic mutation which allows the insulin producing cells (beta cells) to be destroyed by the patients own immune system. Type 2 is due to the body cells being resistant to the patients own insulin resulting in overproduction of insulin by the pancreas. This HIGH insulin level is needed to make the cell accept glucose. Type 1 is not genetic. Type 2 is genetically transmitted. If one parent has Type 2, 25% of the children will get it. If both parents have Type 2, 100% of the children will get it. READ MORE
You are still a pre diabetic and as you age the levels will go back up. You need to maintain a normal weight which will delay the disease return for the longest possible time. Diabetes is a cellular resistant state which does not go away permanently. READ MORE
There are many reasons your husband may be loosing weight and you should discuss this with your primary. If his HBaic is 8 or greater he is not holding on to all of the calories he is eating.

Type II Diabetes is the out of control genetics linked to anti starving. The increased metabolic load of a pregnancy reveals the underlying condition, and it usually goes away after the baby is born. It will return but can be delayed by good dietary habits, exercise and maintaining a near ideal weight. READ MORE
There is no herbal to treat type 1 diabetes. Prior to 1921 it was a fatal disease. There are interesting studies being done at Mass General in boston which may alter the immune mechanism to a point where some function may return. See BCG vaccine studies and Type I diabetes. READ MORE
The ideal Hbaic is determined by your age. If you are under 65 the goal is 6.5-7.0 without hypoglycemia. Every time your Hbaic is one point above 7 the cardiovascular risk doubles. eg. 8 double, 9 times 4, 10 times 8. So you clearly want to be 6.5 to 7 READ MORE
Some medications do lose their effect. Especially drugs like glimemperide, glipizide and other sulfonoureas. READ MORE

This is an important complaint which requires a good evaluation with history and physical. It may not be due to diabetes alone and could represent other serious diseases. Please discuss with your primary and ask if referral is required. Edward M. Condon, MD, FACE, ECNU READ MORE
Multiple hypoglycemia in a patient over age 65 is dangerous. It may be due to eating habits, drugs selected, or patient compliance. An immediate visit should be made to the responsible physician. If the patient fails to respond normally, an ambulance should be called. READ MORE
The answer requires knowing how much insulin your own body presently produces. This may be measured by checking fasting and post meal levels of c peptide or insulin. Once that is known your medication history, your weight, your dietary history would allow an accurate evaluation of your other alternatives. If you do not make adequate insulin you will need to remain on this essential hormone. READ MORE

Juvenile diabetes is a random genetic mutation, insignificant risk from parents. READ MORE
Vit D, which is not a vitamin, but a pro hormone (a substance turned into a hormone by sunlight) is low in the majority of Americans since we no longer eat the major food source of liver and fish liver. Add to that the use of sunblock, living indoors and fear of the sun and you get very low vitamin D levels. The national institute of health recommends a much higher replacement level than previously believed to fix the problem. It has nothing to do with your diabetes. READ MORE
The American Association of Clinical Endocrinology guidelines include the use of GLP-1 angonists in pre diabetes. PCOD is a form of pre diabetes and you should discuss this with an endocrinologist. READ MORE
Hashimoto's disease attacks are intermittent, usually once or twice a year. They usually continue annually until the gland is no longer functional or is physically gone. READ MORE
Type II diabetes is genetic. It appears earlier due to weight, age or stress. Sleeplessness is a stress but is not the root cause of your diabetes. READ MORE
Many patients and many doctors don't realize that diabetics lose weight four times slower than people without diabetes. It usually requires medication to lose weight (not weight loss medications) but pre diabetic medication READ MORE
This is a complex question and depends on how much insulin you make internally. It would require your md or endocrinologist to measure your insulin production and consider your options. I would NOT use insulin without a professional review as it is potentially dangerous. READ MORE

Patient Experience with Dr. Condon
Love this office. Dr Condon and staff are very knowledgable. Nurse practitioners are great.
I came into Dr. Condon's office after hearing all the wonderful things from family and friends who are current patients. I have extremely hard veins and the girls who take the blood are always very patient with me and always get it instantly. The practitioners are always very caring and take their time listening to me. I never feel rushed when I'm in the office.
My daughter and I have been coming to this office for many years. Dr Edward Condon and his staff are highly professional and very kind. Always love to come back. Best Endo on Long Island by far.

Returning to Dr. Condon's office after many years changed my life! Little did I know that my body needs the attention that it was given so carefully and gently by the wonderful staff in this office. Jeannine and Virginia are so thorough. They truly made a difference in my life. Thank you for making me healthy and well!

Dr Condon is a man of honor, has high standards, is a quality Doctor. It is my honor to be his patient, he has become apart of my family and we hold him dear to our hearts. God bless, God keep him, and as the Irish would say "slant gafoil" to his health until we meet again

Every employee in this office is amazing
Dr Condon and his entire staff are extremely caring and helpful. They are always there whenever I have a question or a issue. The NP's are very knowledgable and I wouldn't choose to see any other endo
I've been a patient of dr. Condon's for many years. I've always found him to be an excellent Doctor. Keeps my thyroid levels in check and I would never think of changing my Endocrinologists.
Dr. Condon is an excellent Doctor. I have been going to his office for 7 years now due to my thyroid issues and pre diabetic condition. Every time I saw him or one of his NP's I always left the office feeling satisfied with my visit. The office staff sometimes does seem a little overwhelmed but I would not consider them nasty. I have referred this Doctor to many of my family and friends and they seem to have no major complaints as well.
Virgina is wonderful and I also saw Lonnie and she is also wonderful. And Kelly is very nice.
I was able to get in very quickly as a new patient. The nurses and dr condon were great! They explained everything to me in detail that I didn't understand. Very pleasant experience. Highly recommend!!
