Diabetes type 1 type pills

Common Questions and Answers about Diabetes type 1 type pills


Avatar n tn I have a 14 year old who has had type 1 diabetes for four years. Her average bs is 241 and her a1c is 13! She is on target only 18% of the time (when she tests) in the past year she has been hospitalized twice for DKA and once for chest pain where they were very concerned about her kidneys.She is on intensive insulin management but does not record carbs or insulin administered. She does not think she will get complications. Is there an impartal third party who can WAKE HER UP!
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 f tn My son,10, was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes in May of this year. We have had a terriable time trying to control it. Yesterday he was 430 in the middle of the night and then woke up with a 33! We keep a very detailed journal, monitor patterns, watch his carb intake and things just seem to be CRAZY! I have heard that cinnamon pills can help sustain sugar levels but when I googled it there was only one study done on type 1 kids and there was no significant changes.
Avatar n tn Hi, I just want to know if anybody out there knows of something or someone that will get ride of Diabetes Type 1?????? PLease let me know if you know somthing, anything about getting rid of it!
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.
Avatar f tn Hi, Bobbie, welcome to the Community. I wish I could offer some help or advice, but, so far, I have not had that problem. I am now SVR (over 1 year now) and while on meds (Jun - Dec 2014) I lost about 25 lbs but eating a liver friendly diet, cutting out all sugar, watching my portions, and have continued to follow that diet, although a little more relaxed about ice cream, etc (still no candy). I am now down 35 lbs, and plan to continue my life style change - eating better and walking more.
Avatar n tn test results can make that determination. If you have Type 1, you will use insulin for your entire life. Few folks with Type 1 take oral diabetes meds, tho' some do. Type 1 diabetics must also learn health ways of eating and must incorporate exercise into our routines (just like everyone else who strives to lead a healthy life ;-) ). Folks with Type 2 may be treated successfully with diet & exercise, or diet, exercise & oral meds.
Avatar m tn Hi, if you have type 1 diabetes, but don't depend on insulin then you may actually not have type 1 diabetes. There are other types of diabetes that can follow a different course. These include mody type diabetes (genetic and there are various types, with different management considerations), LADA (adult onset type 1 and can be very slow onset, with dietary control). Your current numbers would appear to mean you don't have diabetes, or it is in remission.
Avatar n tn I wonder how many of you who were diagnosed before the age of 1 have been checked for Neonatal Diabetes? My son was diagnosed at the age of 4 months with Type 1 diabetes but we later found out he had Neonatal Diabetes caused by a genetic mutation of the KCNJ11 gene.
315318 tn?1353255400 1)The best way to find out if you have Type 1 or 2 is to check for antibodies(anti-GAD and anti-islet cell), as well as c-peptide production. You can ask your doctor to do these tests.People with Type 1 diabetes are almost always antibody positive and have very little c-peptide present. For Asian Indians, a BMI of over 23 is considered overweight(not 25 as in caucasian populations), so your risk is a bit different when looking at weight.
1411765 tn?1281655971 There is a substantial number of adults who are misdiagnosed Type 2 who are in fact Type 1 or LADA which is a slow onset type 1. Some of the indications that this might be the case would be a person who was put on oral meds and they did nothing or they worked for awhile (months to a couple years) then stopped working, necessitating insulin use. Many type 1's (I'll just say type 1 which will include LADA) are thin or lose weight on diagnosis, while many (not all) type 2's are overweight.
Avatar f tn I have had type 1 diabetes for over 15 years. I am 25 and recently put on about 10 kilos. My sugar levels have been good the past year and I am having more insulin then I used to but I don't think that's quite the issue. My appetite is crazy! I am hungry all the time. How many diabetics out there struggle with a hungry appetite? Its hard to ignore. I don't want to lose weight for my looks so much but more for my health. Has any type 1's out there tried diet pills? What works?
Avatar n tn Both type 1 diabetes and type 2 diabetes are multifactorial disorders, which means that they involve a combination of genetic, lifestyle and environmental factors. It seems counterintuitive, but type 2 diabetes has a larger hereditary component than type 1 diabetes, even though diet and lifestyle contribute greatly to the development of type 2 diabetes.
Avatar m tn Type 1 diabetes can be distinguished from type 2 by testing for the presence of certain antibodies (Type 1 is an autoimmune disease).
Avatar n tn HI most of my family has diabetes,some take pills,some insulin [type 1 and 2] my question is.it'spossible to have pancreas transplant?
307500 tn?1302119746 Hi, The accepted way to determine if you have Type 1 diabetes is to do antibody testing(anti-GAD and Anti-islet cell antibodies) as well as check for c-peptide levels. There are some people who are antibody negative and still have type 1, but that is not common. Autoimmune diseases can cluster together, so the arthritic problems could be related if you have Type 1. Pheochromocytomas are not autoimmune though.
Avatar n tn My daughter is 16 and is a type 1 diabetic. She has pituitary suppression and insulin binding antibodies. Her specialist have put her on the insulin called Apidra and is working wonderfully but she is having a lot of menstrual problems. They have put her on several different pills to help control this but none are working. Every time she has spotting or a true cycle, she gets very sick to her stomach and her sugar rises very high. She goes into DKA very quickly with this.
Avatar m tn glad to hear she is using low carb as part of management. has she been tested in case she is type 1 diabetes? This can happen even in adults.
86664 tn?1291561395 I too was diagnosed with Type II diabetes a few years after finishing treatment. I just completed my 2nd go round, and while on treatment, my sugar was absolutely normal. Doc took me of of the amaryl I was on. So I am on my 2nd week off treatment, and we will see what happens. I lost over 100 lbs while on treatment and plan to keep that off.. Thats what I gained after treatment last time. I am pretty much normal of where I should be.
Avatar n tn I've been a type 1 diabetic for 12 1/2 years. My doctor took me of Humulin N because A1c was 5.5 and I would experience lows through out the day. With diet and exercise, my blood sugars were pretty good. When my gynecologist put me on Birth Control Pills, seems as if my blood sugars got worse. The next prescriptions would be Glucophage twice daily. Things didn't get better. This medication was discontinued and I was prescribed Glucovance. Oh my God. My blood sugars soared to over 400.

Avatar m tn Hello, if he is type 1 then his main medication will be insulin. If his blood sugar is high then he needs to adjust his insulin. Cinnamon may have only minor benefit, though it probably won't hurt.
Avatar n tn I am not a physican, but the mom of a type 1 diabetic and the daughter of a type 2. I have a cholesterol problem. I can tell you that my daughter doctor does check her constantly for high cholesterol, one when I questioned him about it he told me that food is only a factor 50% of the time. High cholesterol can be hereditary. When was told I had high cholesterol, my doctor wanted to but me on pills, i was not good at talking them, so I tried the type of diets you suggest.
Avatar f tn F-48, overweight most of my and developed Type II Diabetes in 1999. That same year an internist noted that I had "fatty liver". Last year, I came down with incredible pain, lost my appetite completely, had nausea and absolutely no energy. In July of 2008, my gastroenterologist did a test for gastroparesis and the test came back negative.
Avatar f tn Hello, My husband was told he had type II Diabetes about 2 1/2 years ago. He didn't seem to take it seriously. At that time he was working out and the doctor said if he keep working out and just watched what he ate he'd be able to control it without meds. But he quit working out, he suffers from depression as well as panic attacks. He has gain about 30 lbs.
Avatar m tn However you did not say if you are Type 1 or 2?? I am type 1 and at first my A1C was 11.2...OMG BAD..If you are overweight and try some walking or some exercise that will get your numbers down. Also Cinnamon has been proven to lower your blood sugars. I no the feeling WATCHING everything you eat. I just try and stick to protein and vegs so I don't have to take so much Insulin then gain weight.
