Avatar f tn What are the symptoms of Type 1 Diabetes? I have a child who is extremely tired and thirsty all the time. Should I have him checked for diabetes?
Avatar f tn And and inch around my hips - Leg cramps and pains - General tiredness - I get more irritated at people when I'm out - past Carpal Tunnel Syndrome has come back - sometimes I feel shakey +I have done 3 urine glucose home tests at different stages of the day and they all showed nothing. Could it be Type 1 diabetes givin the symptons, and is it possible without glucose in the urine?
Avatar n tn As SLR33 mentioned it is doubtful that she has diabetes from your description, our kids with type 1 have abrupt not usually chronic symptoms and this is usually vomiting, really sick and weight loss and drinking and urinating a ton.
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 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 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).
Avatar m tn and I know i'm a type 1 diabetic because I have been taking humalog and lantus for last 11 years and havent in the last 2 months with the exception of 1 or 2 injections.
521895 tn?1212597611 I'm not worried about GETTING pregnant, but I am a little worried about my brittle type 1 diabetes and the extreme swings - I go from high to low very quickly and vice versa - it's extremely difficult to stay in range even on a strict diet and insulin pump. When it comes time for me to get pregnant, what do I have to worry about? I'm most worried about seizures right now - will I be able to carry a baby if I'm prone to getting hypogylycemic related seizures? Thanks in advance.
Avatar n tn I am 24 years old and have had type 1 diabetes since 1 1/2 years old. I have been on the insulin pump for 4 years now and have experienced much better control....still not where it could be, but way better prior to the pump. Recently I have found myself wondering what is wrong with my memory. I have trouble remembering most of my childhood or even events that happened months ago. I can only truly remember portions of conversations I have. My boyfriend tells me all the time....
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 m tn My boyfriend has type 1 diabetes, but when i ask him about how it will effect his and my life in the future, he seems to have been misinformed or lied to by his parents/consultant. I was just wondering, what the average life expectancy for a person with type 1 who cares for their bloods is? Also, how diabetes will affect his fertility and what common problems normal diabetics encounter? Also, are there any 'warning' signs for when his blood sugar may be too high or low?
1341894 tn?1276129380 I don't know anything about Agent Orange and diabetes. Perhaps you can do a search on it. I also belong to a website with 15,000 members and if you send me a private message I'll give you that site as there are many more diabetics (and the people they may know) that might have some information. As for your type> Type 2 diabetes does not " turn into" Type 1.
Avatar n tn 6%), three type 2 DM (1.6%) and one an indeterminate type of DM. Classical symptoms of DM were present in three patients who developed DM shortly after cessation of Peg-IFN-alpha/Riba. In the other patients, symptoms of DM were either indistinguishable from side effects caused by Peg-IFN-alpha/Riba or absent. CONCLUSION: Our study showed a high incidence of type 1 DM during Peg-IFN-alpha/Riba therapy for chronic HCV infection.
Avatar f tn But the antibody tests are definitive as Type 1's (and 1.5's ) produce antibodies as it is an autoimmune disorder and Type 2's do not. Symptoms can be similar, treatment is not.
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 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 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 coworkers said I need to get him in because these could be signs of diabetes. My father, 5 uncles, 3 aunts, and 2 cousins have type 2, but I've only heard of 2 people in the family having type 1 - my great uncle and my father's cousin. Should I be asking the doctor about diabetes, or is it pretty unlikely that he'd have it without the frequent thirst and urination? I don't want to inquire if my coworkers are way off base.
Avatar f tn Hello, is your father type 1 or type 2 diabetes? Diabetes does have some genetic tendency to being inherited. Why do you think you have diabetes? What are your symptoms? The easiest thing to do may be to borrow your father's meter and testing your own blood sugar. Fasting blood sugar should be < 95 (ideally in the 80s). 2 hours post eating, should be < 120, but ideally <100. If you are in doubt go to the dr to get checked.
723573 tn?1230856987 Hi! I'm 15 years old - Im experiencing some of the same symptoms of diabetes (Ex. Thirst, Hunger, Fatigue) - I had my blood sugar tested yesterday and it was around 104 about 2 1/2 - 3 hours after i ate a big dinner. Does this explain anything? I guess if you have any help that would be good.
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 n tn My friend has these panic attacks his face gets tingly and his hands to and we have to put them in warm water and he goes hot and cold. Also he thinks really negative when he gets these attacks. He has been drinking alot of water and going to the bathroom alot to. Are these symptoms of diabetes and how does he get diagnosed?
Avatar m tn I'm sure your parents would want you to talk with them about it and be seen be a doctor. If in fact you do have (Type 1) diabetes, exercise and eating healthy are very important and it's great that you do that, but they will not get rid of diabetes. If you have diabetes you need to see a doctor and get treatment. Please don't be scared of this or try to avoid it because the results of untreated diabetes can be very severe.
