Diabetes news children

Common Questions and Answers about Diabetes news children


Avatar n tn And I have been looking for ways to soften the blow for Caroline. Here is my take on it. And I hope you find the ideas useful. Good news and bad news here. Bad news first. Type 1 Diabetes is is the result of an autoimmune attack on beta cells in the pancreas. Once beta cells have been destroyed, there is no way of getting them back again. And by the time symptoms manifest and keytones appear in the urine, 80% of beta cells have already been destroyed.
161782 tn?1201221532 sr=1-3) It not only discusses the link between autism and vaccines, but asthma, diabetes and other neurodevelopmental disorders. The HepB vaccine-diabetes link is really strong (http://www.webmd.com/news/20000613/hepatitis-b-vaccine-linked-to-onset-of-diabetes). What's the point of vaccinating an infant, hours after birth, for a disease that only drug users and sexually promiscuous people are exposed to?
15695260 tn?1549596713 Researchers in Germany (however patients were from all over the world in their research) have found that routine blood tests can predict if children with a genetic tie to diabetes will actually develop Type 1 diabetes. They found that if a child has two or more autoantibodies, it's nearly inevitable that they will develop the disease. The research followed participants for 15 years and tested children when they were very young.
9088869 tn?1401643539 Although he's an endo (FACE = Fellow of the American College of Endocrinologists), many endos really specialize in diabetes and have little interest in thyroid. If I were you, I'd probably press him to test FT3 and TSI (along with FT4 and TSH at your next labs), and if he balks at all, move onto another doctor. When are you scheduled for more blood work?
Avatar f tn Dear Sir, Recently I read a news in a news paper saying that the type 1 diabetes can be cured fully & a new vaccine is invented for the same. Plz give your comments & advise on this. I 'm interested , because recently my son Master Chinmay (7 years old) detected a diabetes type 1. He has to take daily injections for around 4 times. We are worried about the same. Can be there any firm cure for this.
Avatar f tn (i have family with diabetes and i am over weight) my aunt had gd with her first but never with her other two children. her son was born very big but she herself was always thin and does not have diabetes later on in life. sometimes its just the way your body works at that point in your life. i realize a good wallow is helpful sometimes but after you're done being upset i hope you can find a way to come to peace with gd and deal with it.
Avatar f tn I found out today that I have developed gestational diabetes :( My doctor is sending me to a counselor to see if we can keep my glucose under control through diet and lifestyle changes. She will also be prescribing a glucose monitor and wants me to do finger sticks before meals as well as after (I can't recall if she said 1 or 2 hours after meals). I will now see her every 1-2 weeks. I am hoping to be able to control this without insulin or medication.
374668 tn?1214342337 My 9 year old nephew has type 1 diabetes, and it would make his life a lot easier if they came out with an inhaler for children. I know they have them for adults, but do they have them for children?
Avatar n tn Also, your other children have the same chance to develop diabetes as your son. That is both good news and bad news, as your son has been diagnosed, but the rate of diagnosis in kids is 1 in every 500. So the chances are low. But I would still test. There is a national study going on that will test you and your child's siblings for free just for participating (if you qualify). Here's the info: http://www2.diabetestrialnet.
Avatar n tn I don't think a child can be born with diabetes, but I am not 100% sure. It used to be that most children would develop the disease between the ages of 8-11. I don't think that is the case anymore, I believe children are developing the disease younger, but there is no set age when the disease develops.
Avatar n tn Their father and I can not seem to agree on the matter at hands and instead it's causing huge disagreements. Our children are ages 4 and 1. So needless to say, they are active, they fall, they constantly are scrapped and scratched. My 1 year old is a typical toddler --putting everything in her mouth, etc. They're just normal children. I have asked that the children not be left alone with her.
Avatar n tn I have read here more then once of someone who had diabetes treated for hep c and then there diabetes cleared. sounds to good to be true although I hope it is. Does anyone have any links to share about studies in regards to diabetes and hep c. I asked by by diabetes docotor and my hep c doctor about a link between the two diseases and both said there wasn't one. Since I am not over weight and there is no diabetes in my family I am inclined to think there is a link.
Avatar n tn That's fabulous news for all of us with diabetes or caring for folks with it. Competition brings out the best in folks. What a wonderful legacy they're creating!
Avatar f tn I recently went to the annual meeting of the Northern California Inland Chapter of the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) where I learned of Approximately 257 adults who were cured of Type 1 diabetes with the Edmonton Protocol in Canada. This protocol was pioneered by Dr. Shapiro and is the leading center for islet cell transplant. As of yet children are not candidates for the procedure and there are some kinks to be worked out before this can become a procedure for anyone.

Avatar n tn My 12 year old daughter has juvenile diabetes at 6 yrs. and was recently diagnosed with Crohn;'s disease. I would like to know if there are any other children that have these two Chronic illnesses. She also has acid reflux.. I would like to know how long it takes for her to overcome a flare since she has been on medication for about 3mths. and is still vomitting clear stomach fluids.
Avatar m tn I'm a type 1 diabetic and have information about diabetes, but pregnancy and diabetes is not my strong point. I do know it is important to have tightly controlled blood sugars when pregnant and people diagnosed with gestational diabetes are usually put on insulin. There is a woman named Super_sally888 on this forum who knows a lot about this topic and if she signs on, she will respond I'm sure.
710547 tn?1295449630 I did have a lot of deterioration and strange things happening in my spine, but the big news was my brain. I've been havine right sided muscle loss and weakness and pain, and more concerning - aphasia. I was getting so bad that on the phone I'd have to apologize - also just talking to friends. Word finding and fluidity were going.
770551 tn?1305582501 I'm feeling a bit sad and angry. Just dropped the kids of at school as saw a very heavy little boy. He was having a hard time walking up the hill to school due to his weight. In his hand his breakfast. A bag of Red Vines.
Avatar n tn My best guess is that the mom feels threatened by you in addition to being wrought with guilt that her children have this disease (most parents would eagerly trade places with their diabetic children if they could). Her whole life is likely consumed with diabetes issues -- or guilt about diabetes issues. Doing things for her children or feeling guilty about not doing enough. It seems as tho' she cannot "hear" your sincere compassionate help for what it is.

1351078 tn?1416316746 ) seen a tiny tiny baby in the sac with a flicker of a heartbeat :) i go back on 3 / 15 /11 for another u/s maybe by then it will be big enough to get a pict :) and a for sure due date for now im keeping the 10 20 11 one it sounds pretty accurate :)
Avatar n tn So now she is going to refer me to the diabetes clinic. I am so frustrated! I know this is not the time to go dieting but I have no idea what to eat. I have only gained 15 lbs and I'm 30 weeks along! Yesterday, after work I looked in my fridge to start cooking for supper and just started crying, I had no idea what to make. I ended up making some pork chops (comfort food) and vegetables.
Avatar n tn I am an RN, and I really think that no matter what age you are, being diagnosed withi diabetes and all of the news and protocols, (or things you have to do because you have it), it's scary, overwhelming, and at first you don't think you'll EVER remember all the details or what (all the steps) you have to do. Though I've heard of younger; one little 18 month old boy, who was diagnosed at six months so had been doing the entire routine for a year, had a blast with it! He was so adorable!
Avatar n tn We did bring her to the doctor, and she suspects that she has diabetes. We did blood work and that confused me even more. Her fasting blood sugar was 92, and the same morning on our machine her sugar was 93 (which tells me that my machine is accurate). Her thyroid functions were normal, cholesterol was normal, and blood count was all normal. Her HgbA1C was 5.5, which falls in the normal range. We are still waiting for her C-Peptide level.
Avatar f tn I just wanted to tell you very quickly that my husband is one of six children, and he's is the only one with diabetes which has come from his father's side, however, it is not necessarily genetic as diabetes is rife where I live due to poor diets and obesity. If your husband has dis diabetes under control there is absolutely nothing stopping him from living completely normally.
Avatar f tn It has nothing to do with your husband-to-be. 4)Your children will have an increased chance of developing diabetes in the future, but often this can be avoided with weight control, diet changes and good healthcare. But yes, there is increased risk. I hope this helps clear up some information/confusion. Your fiance has a good chance of doing just fine for many, many years. Take care and all the best to you both.
Avatar n tn They are extracting insulin producing cells from the donated pancreases of recently deceased patients and coating them in a seaweed solution and then injected them into the patient with diabetes. The great news is that the immune cells can not break through the seaweed and the patient does not have to have anti rejection drugs.
Avatar n tn Also many of the issues described by the poster occur in some people when they hit a certain age. Thyroid, Diabetes, Fybromiallgia, memory loss etc. etc. occur in the middle ages. The age when many of the Hep C folks are also treating. Did one cause the other, would you have had one without the other? There is no real way to know with any certainty.
Avatar n tn My 10 yr old sister recently was diagnosed with juvenile diabetes 2 months ago. Recently she was back in the hospital with thyroid and kidney problems. My parents are not giving me full honest answers on what's going on. Is this bad news? I'm 27 and can handle the truth. Does she have a really bad case with a short life span or is this normal with juvenile diabetes?
