Default Nosebleeds, anyone?

Iíve been having really severe nosebleeds and recently was diagnosed with an AVM in my left nostril... so when my pressures go up, it pops. The ENT guy said it was like a hose!!. Anyway, the thing is, this is a fairly recent thing. I never used to get bleeds, its only been the last 5 years, and only the last 2 with such severity. (Tonight, for example... and not the worst... it has taken 4 hours to control it enough to not have my ďnose-pegĒ on)... in June, I was taken to hospital for something called Rapid rhino.

Was wondering if its just an age thing, or if diabetes could be implicated. anyone else have bleeds?

I'm in my 60s and have been (diagnosed) diabetic for more than ten years and I can't say I see any correlation between those factors and nosebleed frequency. But my BP and BG are pretty much near normal levels; that may be a difference.

Thanks for your reply, Steve. At 60, I had no issues either I’m going to assume its an aberration which has been there forever and its just age thats made it worse. Thank goodness for the nose peg.
