Diabetes type 2 and dehydration

Common Questions and Answers about Diabetes type 2 and dehydration


Avatar n tn Certain disorders such as diabetes mellitus, diabetes insipidus,and Addison's disease can increase the excretion of urine and thereby lead to dehydration. Because people with Type 2 Diabetes produce some Insulin, ketoacidosis does not usually develop. However, the blood sugar levels can become extremely high (often exceeding 1,000 mg/dL). Such high levels often happen as the result of some superimposed stress, such as an infection or drug use.
Avatar n tn It's gonna be like that untill someone extraordinary finds a way to completely fix type 2. Type 1 will never be fixed, but one day we may understand why it happens and will be preventable. For now it's either drastically lowering the consumption of carbs, or the drugs. There's no inbetween.
Avatar m tn I'm a 23 year-old male with a familial history of diabetes (my grandfather and uncle on my mother's side respectively had and have type-2). The thirst that I experience takes place irrespective of physical activity and temperature; I experience it if I spend the day in bed, if I exercise strenuously, if I sit idly on a bench in the snow, or if I'm working in a parking lot in the dead of summer.
Avatar n tn I am 22. My grandma had diabetes. I am not sure what type she had. How much of salt and lemon should I add to the water? Do you know the exact measurement? I get sore throat every now and then, but it usually goes away after a couple of days. Could this be the cause? I play soccer every Thursday too, do you think I should play this week? Thank you for your time.
Avatar n tn There are a few forms of this disease and diabetes insipidus is not the same as Type I, Type 2 diabetes or diabetes mellitus. Ask the doctor if you can get checked out for this and also ask to get imaging tests done (ultrasound or MRI) of your kidneys. This will help should you get an appointment to see a nephrologist, but he may order different tests to be done. As a nephrologist specialises in kidney problems, that is a good specialist to see with the symptoms that you have.
Avatar f tn I posted another similar question on the diabetes forum, but then I found out that this is the same thing as autonomic dysfunction. Is the type associated with type 2 diabetes progressive and what is the prognosis. I see the dr in March because we still have to get my blood sugar under control. I have been having symptoms that sound like this problem so I will have to talk to my new dr about it. I'm scared.
Avatar n tn 5 to 3 hours after I fall asleep my feet get extremely hot, they are slightly swollen, it's painful and keeps me up. I also experience night sweats (2 nights were severe, the rest of the time I'm damp/clammy. I urinate frequently. I don't have these symptoms during the day...although I do have dry mouth (so I drink a lot of water hence the nightly bathroom visits).
Avatar n tn I am a Type 1 diabetic who has recently been suffering from leg, foot, toe, ankle, thigh, and even hand cramps so bad that I can hardly stand it. I get the foot and leg and ankle cramps usually in the middle of the night, and then can't sleep. It is almost a nightly occurance. My ankle sort of keeps cramping up, and then it spreads to my toes and calf. It is absolutely unbearable. I am wondering if ANYONE can tell me where to start to find out what is causing this.
Avatar n tn Hey, So I have type I diabetes, and I like to drink. I do it fairly often, and in moderation. Sometimes, I like to get wasted like everybody else. and I keep water bottles with me to stay hydrated and my glucometer and Insulin to use as needed and im fine. try having a drink instead of taking mind-altering drugs.
1469903 tn?1286650297 Of all the patients with diabetes, only approximately 10% of the patients have type 1 diabetes and the remaining 90% have type 2 diabetes. Type 2 diabetes was also referred to as non-insulin dependent diabetes mellitus (NIDDM), or adult onset diabetes mellitus (AODM). In type 2 diabetes, patients can still produce insulin, but do so relatively inadequately for their body's needs, particularly in the face of insulin resistance as discussed above.
Avatar n tn I would suggest you have him checked by a doctor. When my daughter was diagnosed she only had flu like symptoms. My daughters grandmother (fathers side) is a type 2 and my grandmother and great grandmother were also diabetic (type 1 & 2). The best advise is to seek a doctor's help. Make sure you let the doctor know why you are concerned and the family history of diabetes. Better safe than sorry.
Avatar f tn I have been making concerted efforts to cut back over the last 2 and 1/2 months. So far 6 days has been the longest. I am currently on day 4. It has come to my attention that a fasting blood test would indicate your average blood glucose for the past 3 months, so yes, it would stand to figure that alcohol would've caused that. However, alcohol damage to the Pancreas also causes Diabetes. That's my concern.
Avatar f tn I have been having these weird feelings sort of like low blood sugar i guess, like if i dont have something sweet i will feel a little angry then when i eat something sugary i feel better, or sometimes when i eat carb rich foods like potatoes or rice i will feel super energized almost like a drunken feeling afterward and it like i just ate but i am still hungry. My grandfather has type 1 diabetes , so i am worried, plus i read being underweight can cause type 1 diabetes.
Avatar n tn You sugars may not go back to baseline but it may be difficult to determine if it is the effects of the medication or simply the normal course of type 2 diabetes. Hope this answers your questions. take care.
Avatar n tn Make sure you fast 12 hours before blood test to get accurate results.I was diagnosed about a year and half ago with type II diabetes, and I didn't have weight loss either. My biggest marker was slow healing mosquito bites. At 5 months they were still open, itching, and bleeding. Good luck and God Bless, and let us know the results. Will be praying for a good outcome for you.
Avatar n tn She has also been in the hospital for 2 weeks because of dehydration and renal failure. Her kidneys are now functioning and her blood sugar is fine. She had developed a sore on her buttocks. It is just below the tail bone. It has become type 3 and 4. It is draining and has a very foul smell. The physical therapist at the hospital said that she would need surgical intervention. She is in extreme pain and has to be medicated with morphine and other types of drugs.
Avatar f tn Diabetes Insipidus is not the normal type of diabetes that can be controlled by food or by medications like metformin or insulin. Diabetes Type 1 and Type 2 are those that are controlled by food and or medications like metformin or insulin. Diabetes Insipidus is a rare condition and nothing to do with the the pancreas and production of insulin or lack of it. A blood sugar monitor will be of no use to someone with Diabetes Insipidus.
Avatar n tn His BS is very well controlled, but I am thinking that the headaches are more tension related than realted to his type 1 diabetes. He's a sophmore in high school and was diagnosed on New Year's Eve 2011, so he is still honeymooning. From what I see in this forum, CT scans aren't providing any answers to the headaches. I'll start looking in the activites/stress direction. Thanks for posting!
Avatar m tn Starts with nose and mouth drying, weakness and dehydration does not go away inspite of taking plenty of fluids. Other symptoms include breathing difficulty because of dehydration, muscle pains from hips, on the sisdes, leading to knees and calf muscles. This has been leading to infection of Testes and over time, you see the infection in Urine. Whole of this happens in a weeks time. If i'm given anti-biotics, I'm recovering to normal state.
Avatar f tn I was dropping things, slurring and forgetting words for things, stumbling and feeling dizzy and off balance. Over the next 5 years I saw various neurologists, had 2 lumber punctures, a myelogram, a couple of MRI scans, cat scans, blood tests, reflex tests and a test I don'y know the name of where they glued electrodes on my scalp and measured my brain response to physical, visual and audio stimulation.
1806721 tn?1554337007 My questipn, however, is about whether statin drugs will raise blood sugar, causing pre-diabetes or diabetes? My paternal grandma has type 1 and my maternal uncle has type 2 diabetes. In the past 6 months, besides rapid weight loss, I also experienced fatigue, weakness, cold feet, dizziness, sudden drop of blood pressure, increased thirst and trips to restroom, low grade fever on and off with left side abdominal pain.
Avatar n tn Hi Sir/Ma'am, My father is a type 2 diabetic since last 17 yrs. Right now he is on 15+25 day night insulin (Novo Nordisk Human Mixtard). He had suffered from Diabetic Neuropathy since last four years and later on he recovered. He has problem in his left eye due to blood clotting. The big problem right now is he has become very weak. His Cholestrol and BP has also gone up. B-Sugar was also around 300 last week but now its below 180(Fasting).
Avatar n tn http://www.diabetes.org where they list information about both Type 2 and Type 1 diabetes. Some of your symptoms are similar to diabetes symptoms but others are not. Your best bet is to grab the hand of one of your friends, and go to the doctor. A doc is the only person who can do a careful workup and diagnosis -- and help you get on the path to feeling better. Ignoring symptoms doesn't make 'em go away - it just escalates our worry.
Avatar n tn I am a twenty one year old mother and my son is 2 1/2 years old and he as been experiencing the same symptoms as everyone else children. He's vomiting uncontrollably and it scares me. The doctor said it was a virus and perscribed me the generic brand of Zofran. I personally do not think it is a virus because it has occured to long. Everytime I touch his throat he starts to gag. I just want to know what is going on with my little boy and I appreciate any feedback.
Avatar n tn Also, I remember being freezing cold and then very hot on and off for about 2 weeks after the shot. That has also subsided. Better days are ahead!!
Avatar m tn In fact I came out good for a 75 year old with Heart problems; glaucoma, type 2 diabetes and I take Cordorone (amiodaron) and coumadin. No further incidents have occurred to date. I should note that my brother who is 4 years older than me had a series of such strokes in 2008, some resulting in serious falls breaking a rib on one occasion. However, he is, or was, a drinker and not on any blood thinner other than that.
Avatar n tn just recently I went to the doctor for pains in my left hip, stomach and legs. I am a type 2 and he informed me they were muscle spasms. He prescribed Loritabs (2 day), Flexiril (1 at night)) and Naproxen (2 per day). He says it goes with the territory! I had just started walking three times a week and was thinking about doing the Zumba thing but will have to go to something a little easier like Tai Chi.
Avatar n tn My input is based on experience I have in caring for my 10 year old son who was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at the age of 3. First of all, I have heard (and read) that there are those who have hypoglycemia and never develop diabetes and then there are those who go on to develop diabetes.
