Business man2 Recent studies indicate that the early detection of diabetes symptoms and treatment can decrease the chance of developing the complications of diabetes.
Avatar f tn most gestational diabetes cases go away soon after the baby is born but some continue on as type 2 diabetes. and if its uncontrolled diabetes (ie not being treated) then she would be losing weight.
Avatar n tn Signs of type 1 and type 2 diabetes are very similar. Feeling shaky, having nausea, feeling weakness and fatigue are one of several diabetes symptoms. Having a family history of diabetes also puts you at higher risk than others. You're not going to get full answers to your concerns on the inet as we cannot diagnose you without seeing you.
723573 tn?1230856987 if you're losing weight and having more extreme symptoms.. then it's most likely type one. the only way you'll know for sure is to get an hemoglobin a1c test done, it'll show your average blood sugar over three months. then, if it is diabetes, you'll be able to figure out which type it is from there. hope that helped a bit. good luck to you, keep posting!
Avatar f tn Normal levels 70-99 mg/dl Prediabetes 100-125 mg/dl Above 126 mg/dl indicate diabetes [hyperglycemia aka Type 2 diabetes] If your fasting levels returns below 70 mg/dl this indicates hypoglycemia [aka Type 1 diabetes]. 2.) OGTT [Oral Glucose Tolerance Test] - You drink a sugary liquid then tested in 1 hour intervals. This test is given to see how well your body sheds excess glucose after 1, 2 and 3 hours. 3.) RGT [Random Glucose Test] - Tested at any given time.
Avatar n tn My father was recently diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. My uncle has type 2 diabetes as well. Recently I have just been looking into the common symptoms and have become rather concerned. I would like some clarity on whether these are actual symptoms of diabetes or not. 1. Most of the time during the days it seems like I'm always very hungry. 2. If I'm not weight lifting and eating A LOT of food I tend to lose weight. 3. Occasionally I feel very weak. 4.
Avatar f tn a few years ago, I was diagnosed with Diabetes Type II. I do weigh more than the average teenager but I am not what doctors would term as over-weight. My problem is, I am not on any medication of any kind. The only medication i recieved from my doctor was 6 years ago, and it only assisted in heloping me lose weight. Is this normal? Is it possible/normal that I can survive and beat this illness by simply sticking to my diet? any clarification on this will be muvh appreciated. Thank you.
Business man1 you are classified as either normal, prediabetic, or diabetic [type 1, type 2, or type 1.5]. Telling us which one helps us help you so we can provide appropriate responses.
Avatar n tn My wife became a type 1 diabetic at the age of 3 (1951); her 6 year older sister one year later became a type 1 diabetic (1952) - they both weren't suppose to live past the age of about 13. My wife passed at the age of 50. She could have taken better care of her self like her older sister as we just buried her this week at the age of 72. I don't know of any diabetic who has lived as long as her.
Business man2 Let us not forget Type 2 diabetes is associated with obesity, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, lack of daily 30-60 exercise, and above all poor food choices. In its early stage it is possible to reverse diabetes. This does not mean you can ignore lifestyle changes by going back to the bad habits which created your diabetes, it means you must adhere to a diabetic prevention lifestyle or it will return.
Avatar m tn Why did you have a blood sugar test in January and another one in March? However, if you are Type 1 it can come on quite suddenly. My strong suggestion to you would be to make an appointment to talk to your doctor, get re-tested (perhaps an A1C or OGTT) and go from there. If you are normal weight and eat healthy and are young you are more likely Type 1 which is an autoimmune disease and has little to do with lifestyle. However, more information is definitely needed.
Avatar m tn 2hours late(aprox) symptoms came. FOrgot to mention , this only has been going on for 2 months. My father has type 2 diabetes, I am 33. is this early signs? I would appreciate an input in this situation.
1456043 tn?1285366131 If you have these high blood sugars ongoing for awhile you are at risk of DKA so if you begin to feel flu-like symptoms or vomiting you need to go to the ER. By the way you've posted in the Type 2 forum.
1554354 tn?1297175664 Diabetes often goes undiagnosed because many of its symptoms seem so harmless. Often people with type 2 diabetes have no symptoms so they appear normal to others. I don't know Florida laws but in Calif at 19 yo you can see a doctor on your own. If you cannot afford one Google search Free Health Clinics near your town/city. In the meantime you must take care of your body by maintaining normal weight, avoiding sugary and high carbohydrate foods, and do some sort of physical exercise daily.
873325 tn?1295465496 Thanks for your comment:) I think I will make an appt with her doctor. I want to make a log of her sugars for a few days, do you know the best times to test? I know that about 2 hours after eating, you should be in the normal range....but what if you test soon after you eat, is that a bad time to test? I don't know much about diabetes. I think when they have tested for diabetes it was a blood test. Thanks for your help!
Avatar n tn Her sleeping and behaviour are all of a sudden upside down. She is hyper, irritable, excessive crying. Do any of her symptoms sound like type 1 diabetes? And is it likely in someone with IGA deficiency? Should I ask my ped. gastro to see endocrinologist? They thought for several months she maybe also had Hereditary Fructose Intolerance, but she doesn't throw-up when ingesting sugar, which would be a marker for HFI. Please any advice would be appreciated.
1300526 tn?1275775221 Since you had health issues before becoming a diabetic, have you ever considered that you might have had chronic pancreatitis for all those years. This can cause the symptoms of diabetes, but it is not quite like classical diabetes in that infection causes the problem not "metabolic syndrome", the underlying problem that eventually becomes diabetes.
Avatar f tn and i think majority of the long term risks also related to obesity since its one of the most common symptoms of classic pcos . i would like to write my insulin levels but i dont know them , since been few years when i had my diagnostic tests and i wasnt interested in the subject that much back than .but i will try to get my health records and see if i have it done , if not i will ask for the test .
Avatar f tn The possibility is that Joey has been 'becoming diabetic' for months or even years, without you or your vet necessarily being aware of it. As the diabetes developed, so secondary symptoms would have developed, including cataract. Blind dogs can manage very well, but obviously it is better to have the cataracts removed if finance permits. Dogs blind from birth fare better than dogs that become blind later in life. You already have an understanding about not moving furniture, etc.
1538715 tn?1294146016 i just rub the area and 2 secs later it happens again somewhere else on my feet. Im not sure if im having pre diabetes type 2 symptoms. tinkiling feet is the only thing im having ( not sure if increased thirst ? ) no urge to pee or diarrea or vomiting. My grand ma had it. My parents dont . Neither do my brothers/ sisters.
Avatar n tn Addison's(autoimmune adrenal disease) can give you some of those symptoms, and is often associated with other autoimmune diseases like Type 1 diabetes and vitiligo. It is very important that you have this done soon--please contact your doctor as soon as possible about this. If in the meantime you feel unwell with lightheadedness, nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain, please go to your nearest ER as this could signal adrenal crisis(life threatening).
Avatar n tn A specialist, such as an endocrinologist or diabetologist should really be involved in treating diabetes. if the physician you're working with is not one of these, then do get a referral to one. If s/he is, then insist on a second opinion because the care is clearly not working. It does take time for blood sugar levels to come down. After a long period of time enduring high levels like you're reporting, it will likely feel odd/bad to have "normal" numbers.
Avatar n tn My 17 year old daughter was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes at age 11. Now all of a sudden for the past week she wakes up in the morning with bld sugars in the 150-200 range but feels lik they are dropping. She has signs of low bld sugar, shaky, heart racing, can't see. As the morning goes on she will drop to 60 after eating & not taking any insulin. What is going on? She is missing school, does your pancreas sometimes work to give her insulin?
Avatar f tn This sounds like a pinched nerve or some type of mechanical issue. Diabetes that is uncontrolled can cause those symptoms, but I wouldn't expect to hear someone say all this started at once from diabetes. You don't say if you've minimized your risks for the other family problems ... heart disease, stroke & cancer. I'm not a doctor, but if you were my friend I'd say, 'Ask your primary doctor about assessing these risks. Is the diabetes controlled? What is your lipid profile?
544772 tn?1321288809 Hi. I've had Type I Diabetes for over 37 years now - I was around 3 when i came down with it. My question is for other long term Diabetics. I've noticed over the years that my hypoglycemic reaction symptoms have changed - generally dramatically - at stages of my life. When I was young, I hallucinated. The next incarnation was paralysis of all muscle groups including vocal - I figured it was my body's way of shutting down unnecessary parts in order to keep working.
Avatar n tn My son is 20 & has had type 1 diabetes for 3 years. He is not a frequent drinker but if he does he only has 3 or 4 drinks. He recently did this & was thought by his friends to be asleep (they know nothing about his condition which will have to change) He was left alone in a strange house all night so no one can tell us anything about what happened.When he woke up he was disorientated and had a dislocated shoulder.
Avatar n tn I have had genital herpes since april of 07 and I have had type 1 diabetes since i was 10. Although Im probably alot healthier than you are because im alot younger, you can expect probably some sores to come about the shaft of your penis. They symptoms of herpes for a woman are worse than a man's. Most of the time your sores will go away after a couple of days (they say the day of diagnosis is the worst one).
