Diabetes type 1 and nausea

Common Questions and Answers about Diabetes type 1 and nausea


Avatar n tn Hi Doctor, recently about 1 and half years diagnosed with type 1and a half diabetes and now on a pump. I went from hashimotos to lupus to diabetes to vitiligo. I'm getting episodes of low blood pressure 84/54 with foggy head/lightheaded as well. blood sugers are ok at this time but recently had a bad flu with 101 fever. always am dehydrated though I drink 6-8 bottles of water daily. What to do when these episodes happen???? Is there a specific test I should have done????
Avatar n tn I assume you get regularly tested for thyroid to make sure that isn't the cause of your weight gain and you don't need an adjustment in thyroid meds. Insulin doesn't make people gain weight, though sometimes people lose weight when initially diagnosed with very high numbers and when their blood sugar gets under control they continue eating the same way and gain weight. Another cause of weight gain in Type 1's is insulin resistance.
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.
Avatar n tn My friend has type I diabetes and has frequent stomach pain that is very severe and sometimes throws up. When she takes her blood sugars it is with in normal range. She also in the last 2 years has developed environmental allergies. What could cause this and what kind of a doctor should she go to?
Avatar n tn frequent urination, excessive thirst and hunger, dramatic weight loss, irritability, weakness and fatigue, and nausea and vomiting. Some other symptoms of type 2 diabetes may include: recurring or hard-to-heal skin, gum, or bladder infections, blurred vision, tingling or numbness in hands or feet, and itchy skin.
804587 tn?1238015725 I'm copying a related post answered by Dr Ramsetty from March 2008. "Were you able to check your blood sugars during that times you felt the nausea? That is the only way to know if it is related to the blood sugar levels. Nausea is a common side effect of some medications used for diabetes, however it is also associated with diabetes itself, and also other problems such as reflux and heart disease.
Avatar n tn Dear Merrymom, I am the mom of a 17 year old who was diagnosed at the age of 21 months. I am not a medical professional, so any information obtained should be verified with your daughter's healthcare team. Looking back on my daughter's diagnosis, I now wish that I had asserted myself more. She also had the same tests performed that your daughter has had done.
Avatar n tn Jules, I'm not a physician, but I have been reading lately that there is often a phase of apparent hypoglycemia prior to developing Type 1. ANd then, there's often a honeymoon phase after initial dx where the pancreas can still squeeze out some insulin in response to glucose -- tho' it may be a delayed response. I was dx'd as a teen and it's now nearly 35 years later. I'm healthy other than DM.
Avatar n tn My husband is 35yrs old and has had type 1 diabetes since childhood. Every other month he has severe nausea and stomach pains until he vomits, these episodes last 2-3 days. Any advice on how to prevent this or treat when it happens?
Avatar n tn Hi Ridinglife, I am a volunteer here with Type 1 diabetes. I can speak only from experience of the symptoms of diabetes but if you are worried it is easy to have a simple blood test to confirm your symptoms. For me excessive thirst and urination were the most apparent feelings. But I do also experience nausea and fatigue if my blood sugars are running very high.
Avatar m tn Diet is important with diabetes and and gerd....u need to also avoid foods that will irritate ur reflux.....Please see the Health Pages for a list of foods to avoid and lifestyle changes to help u with this issue. I will see if I can find the thread from the other member on BB.
Avatar n tn Does above normal blood sugar always mean diabetes? And could this range (which seems to me to be on the borderline) cause me to feel lightheaded off and on throughout the day most days? My blood tests don't really show anything else out of range (such as TSH). The doc says diabetes is the reason (but I'm a little concerned that it could be unrelated to my symptoms). Thanks for the advice!
Avatar f tn I have since returned to our normal unprotected sex, but ever since the incident, her blood sugars have been a bit higher at night. She is type 1 diabetic. I know this probably has nothing to do with it, but it freaks me out. I would really appreciate some reassurance or expert advice. I have had no fever or sore throat. The only symptom or medical concern I had was I felt a bit fatigued for 2 days, but not fully sick. I also had a mouth infection next to an abscess tooth. 1.
974371 tn?1424656729 in other words, this could be pre-diabetes or even diabetes. The nightsweats and nausea are due to a condition called keto-acidosis (meaning your blood sugar is too high and your kidneys can't get the extra out of your blood)/. It makes you nauseaus as well as causing nightsweats. Healthy adults (who are at a normal weight) can develop this condition due to a variety of problems that have nothing (or very little, anyway) to do with weight or diet.
Avatar n tn BACK to the original question - does marijuana affect type 1 diabetes? no. I've been type 1 diabetic for 9 years and between alcohol and marijuana, I will ALWAYS choose marijuana since alcohol lowers my blood sugar and sometimes leads to me having seizures.
Avatar n tn Hi Little Ranches Well I am not a docor I am only a volunteer with Type 1 diabetes. It is hard to determine what our symptoms may be but the only recommendation I have is that you discuss them with your doctor. Sweating can be a symptom of a low blood sugar but nausau can be a symptom of a high blood suger. I think since you are having mulitple symptoms it is something your doctor would be best to diagnos.
Avatar n tn Good sound advice from supersally down under. The A1c is called the hemoglobin A1c. It measures your average glucose for the past three months. Why is this test important? On an average red blood cells live 3 months. Excess glucose binds to "new" cells until they die off. The A1c captures this while the results are returned in % (percentage). If you get this test performed be sure to get a copy of your lab results and check the range values.
Avatar n tn I am wondering if any doctor can help me out in regards to my symptoms... 1) Nausea that comes and goes in spurts. It is sometimes extreme, and sometimes faint, but it always seems to be there at least once a week. (I am have never vomitted from this, altough I always feel like I am going to) I get a tightness in the upper stomach. 2)Dizziness. I have had dizziness since I was younger but each year it seems to get worse.
Avatar f tn Those are two very complicated illnesses (I actually have diabetes type 1 myself). There might be a question of which came first - as both illnesses can cause the other. Firstly, kidney disease is not curable, and you need to let your dad know it. The dog will ultimately die from it - or from the diabetes - although diabetes can be of course be managed with good insulin therapy. The difficult thing here is ...
1469903 tn?1286650297 disease of the blood vessels (both small and large) which can damage the eye, kidneys, nerves, and heart may occur • Diabetes treatment depends on the type and severity of the diabetes. Type 1 diabetes is treated with insulin, exercise, and a diabetic diet. Type 2 diabetes is first treated with weight reduction, a diabetic diet, and exercise. When these measures fail to control the elevated blood sugars, oral medications are used.
Avatar n tn my young daughter has type 1 for 7 yrs she has some resistance too. they tried adding in an oral diabetes med on top of her insulin, that helped. exercise is good for reducing resistance and just being extra good with what you eat, go for stuff that is low G.I its a great way to help your blood sugars.
Avatar n tn We are not medical professionals, just volunteers, and our expertise focuses on type 1 diabetes, or insulin dependent diabetes. I can, however, share with you my own personal experience as my own mother-in-law was type 2 and went through chemotherapy last year with a similar experience that your mother is going through now.
Avatar n tn type 1 diabetes, auto immune hemolytic anemia, ITP, lupus. To this day my liver has not yet normalized but I am seeing a new doc to try to determine exactly what is happening. I have had two liver biopsies, two bone marrow biopsies and many scans and ultra sounds. Although my health history is rather extensive they have yet to pinpoint what is happening with my liver.
Avatar n tn So that is my problem. Well, I don't think so. We know our bodies best and we can NOT ignore nausea and vomitting and loss of appetite (same for me). I have lost 60 pounds in 4 months. And they were still ignoring it. So I finally went on my own to a specialist in a city near by. She is wonderful and angry at the local doctors and surgeons for putting my life on the line. She said that nausea all the time is not normal!!! Insist on more testing. I had too.
Avatar n tn It almost always happens in the early morning and gets dramatically better in the afternoon (although it has happened in some afternoons and 1 or 2 evenings). In the past, he has gone a few months without an episode. For the last 2 weeks, his nausea gets activated the minute we arrive at school. I can't imagine that it's "stress" related because he is a popular little boy with many friends and does very well in class.
15375805 tn?1441615985 type 1 and type 2. Type 2 is more prevalent globally and according to the World Health Organisation forms 90 percent of all diabetes cases. You are more likely to be diagnosed with erectile dysfunction if you have type 2 diabetes than if you have the type 1 version of the condition. Causes You may be left wondering why a condition caused by uncontrolled glucose levels can have such an impact on erection function.
Avatar f tn Nausea after eating, increased thirst, unexplained weight loss, and frequent headaches are potential warning signs of type 1 diabetes [more so than type 2 diabetes]. They also raise a red flag to a number of potential gastrointestinal issues. Bottom line is he needs to be evaluated by a doctor asap.
1061755 tn?1269138071 i find it my doctors job to tell me whats wrong, with me. And again is it possible that you had the symptoms of type 1 before and nothing was wrong, and then they find it later ???
776303 tn?1239872138 He is an extremely intelligent boy and is starting to fall behind. We have been to the doctors and they did tests and have ruled out celeac (apologies for the mispelling). We have spoken to his nurses in the clinic who are going to take him in to do tests but is there anything I could advise my parents to do until we find out? His symtoms are, throwing up, not being able to get up in the moring, reflux and a range of other ones too. Could this just be him hitting puberty? Thanks!!
