Many things can cause nausea. But related to your history of diabetes, how are your blood sugar readings lately? Hyperglycemia (eleveated blood sugar) can cause nausea, as well as other symptoms like fatigue, thirst, frequent urination, itching skin, and dry mouth.
There are several GI (gastrointestinal) problems, such as gastroparesis (slowed stomach), acid stomach or ulcer, gall bladder issues (especially if noted after a meal containingt fatty food), gastric reflux, intestinal infection, etc.with nausea as a symptom.
Sometimes nausea occurs along with inner ear problems, but usually there would also be balance problems or dizziness if this was the cause.
There are many more things that can cause nausea.
Are you having any other symptoms?
---no other symptoms-----------just 80 lbs. overweight and all that goes with that!!!!!!!!!! In this day and age are there no safe medications to control appetite? I am 70 and can't seem to control this for 50 years!!!!!!!!!!!!
There are some things that you can take short term to kick off a diet. There is a product that you can buy over the counter (a stronger version is by prescription only) called Alli that keeps your intestines from absorbing fats. There can be side effects such as diarrhea (if you are eating a lot of fat and taking the pill - but you should still cut down on fats anyway). The Mayo Clinic web site has an article about this product that will give you a good idea about this and what you could expect. You likely should still run this by your physician before starting it, if you decide to do this.
