Diabetes type 3 brain

Common Questions and Answers about Diabetes type 3 brain


Monster I use two meters twice a day. Adverage variables 10%. 110-135 range. bmi 39.5 +/-. M/63/290lbs/6'3". Will finger test reveal brain glucose levels for type 3? Is there any info available for ref. = internet/library/etc? High glucose levels (140-185 ) decrease long termmemory and short term memory recall. Balance and fatigue. Low levels increase all, except occational long term memory recall and aaccuracy. Anything Would be appreciated.
Avatar n tn If he doesn't, then he can't blame them on diabetes. Having low blood sugars does affect the way the brain works. The brain requires glucose to function properly, which is why someone who is hypoglycemic has balance issues and often doesn't remember severe lows. Personally, I don't think what you're seeing has anything to do with diabetes. If he is otherwise able to function, isn't having lows at the time of the memory lapse, then it isn't diabetes that are causing those problems.
894177 tn?1241482154 Im 16 years old and have been diabetec for 3 years now. you ask anyone about diabetes and they say they hate it just like me. we hate the daily injections we have to give ourselves, we hate checking our sugar, we hate not eating and enjoying what our other friends do... because of diabetes. i had to stop playing the sport i love football, because of diabetes.
Avatar n tn My 13yo son Sean was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes nine months ago. He is also significantly ADHD, requiring daily medication in order to be able to function socially and academically. We have found that the ADHD meds and the insulin are difficult to schedule because the ADHD meds suppress the appetite, and now that he has diabetes, he cannot skip meals.
Avatar f tn my almost 16yr old daughter has had diabetes since age 9. over the last 3 months she has restricted her diet, over exercised and omitting a large proportion of her insulin. as she was not at all overweight to start with she is now unhealthy low bmi. she has been referred to an eating disorders unit were she is currently being assessed. the majority of her weight loss has been achieved by not giving her insulin. her last hba1c was 13.
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.
Avatar n tn Hello, I am a 29 year old female, diagnosed with Type I diabetes when I was 25. I was always a picture of health and never had any "health" problems until now. Not to make excuses or anything, but knowing that I have this to deal with this has made me extremely depressed, so depressed that at times I don't take my insulin and I also think that in my mind I'm afraid of being over weight. It didn't help that my mother passed away suddenly either.
Avatar f tn ok dose this sound like diabetes or do i just have like every std in the book and them some other problems? ok so these are the symtoms of diabetes ive had more than a few times but not all on a regular basis.
Avatar n tn My 30 year old son has had type 1 diabetes since the age of 17. He has had three episodes with high sugar levels from infections and each time has been hospitalized and put in ICU. This week something different happened. He woke up from a nap and his blood sugar was low. When he went to the kitchen for juice, he let out a scream and collapsed and began to have a seizure.
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 n tn I have solely concentrated on my career and going back to school. During that time two things have happened; 1) I developed type II diabetes, and 2) I have made a regular habit of masturbating to porn at least once everyday. Here is where I am confused as to what my issue might be. In terms of having real sex, I have not done so in many years, so I have no frame of reference when it comes to how my penis will respond with a real girl.
Avatar f tn I think the thing that worries me most during pregnancy is gestational diabetes because it can cause some pretty serious complications, especially for the birth. So my question is - is there anything I can be doing to help prevent GD? A certain diet? Or is this something that just develops regardless of what you do? I never had it my other pregnancies but my last pregnancy I was close to the cutoff. My midwives' cutoff is lower than most doctors' cutoffs, too, which is kind of frustrating.
Avatar m tn According to my doctor, both, pre-diabetes and type II diabetes are reversed if you can maintain normal blood glucose levels, via diet and exercise, without medication.
Avatar n tn I am so sorry that your friend is having this emotional seesaw problem. I am hesitant to blame her mood swings entirely on diabetes, for many type 1 diabetics are even-tempered and happy people, but I DO want to tell you that many parents notice that their type 1 children are irritable or hyperactive or just "not themselves" when glucose levels are either high or low. So my first suggestion to you is to encourage her to try to even out the glucose levels.

Diabetes mellitus is a group of metabolic diseases characterized by high blood sugar (glucose) levels, that result from defects in insulin secretion, or action, or both.
Avatar n tn It is usually best to work with a high-risk obstetrician and Certified Diabetes Educator who are experienced at the management of diabetes through pregnancy. Use of an insulin pump and/or continuous glucose monitor may also be to your advantage. There is a series of excellent articles on all aspects of managing diabetes through pregnancy at the "Diabetes Sisters" website: https://diabetessisters.org/pregnancy.
Avatar n tn 2 of my grandparents on my fathers side have suffered strokes my grandmother several and she also suffers from severe type 2 diabetes. Please if you can give me any sort of information at all outside of the simple line that was provided by my doctor would be great.
Avatar f tn Dear Doctor- My father (an extremely active, otherwise healthy man of 71 yrs of age) was diagnosed with Type II Diabetes in early June of this year. Subsequently, he unfortunately sustained a left hemisphere subcortical lacunar stroke (infarct) at the end of July. Per his Neurologists' records, "he had no significant stenosis of his carotid arteries and no source of emboli based on his echocardiogram results".
Avatar n tn Thank you all for your posts. The "brain shakes" started with me about 3 weeks ago and are getting worse. As I have vertigo, lupus, hypothyroidism, fibromyalgia and w few other things I could excuse the fatigue and my eyes feeling out of focus. A bit of dizziness was nothing new. But these brain shakes are getting worse. I work for a Physical Therapy place so I spoke with one of the therapist. I told her this is not vertigo, I know exactly what that feels like.
Avatar m tn I've been a type 1 diabetic 45 years and I also have had MS for 3 years. My neurologist says my MS is the cause my diabetes Dr. isn't so sure. I tried two MS drugs that just made me sick. Does it matter what the cause is? Is there a key for determiningwhich is responsible?
Avatar n tn hello my father who is 78 and in real good physical condition is suffering from dizzy spells. He is a type II diabetic who normally eats pretty good and takes a pill once a day. He doesn't test his blood and won't seem to do so. He walks a few miles every day and is an avid golfer. What happened was they went on a 3 day holiday and the weather was extremely hot. Also mom said dad didn't eat so well for the 3 day they were gone.
Avatar n tn I have a 19 year old with type 1 who was diagnosed 3 years ago. He is now NOT taking care of himself, no blood glucose testing, not bolusing (on his pump), eating all the wrong foods. We tried taking his car away. but he has school and work to go to. We tried grounding him, but he sits around all day while we are at work. Now that he has a job with his own money and is mobile he lives on fast food, candy and regular pop that he can go out and buy on his own.
Avatar n tn My daughter does have Type 1. Although it is unusual for adults to develop the illness, it happens occasionally. Also, my daughter ALWAYS ate a low carb, low sugar diet, with only occasional "fattening" foods. As a result, she is quite thin. In addition, she exercises regularly and is extremely athletic. She may well have had the illness for some time before it was diagnosed, following gestational diabetes.
Avatar n tn Hi I just found this site today. My son is 12 yrs old and has had type 1 diabetes since he was 6 yrs. He is now on a pump and has been for the last 2-1/2 yrs. He plays a lot of sports but his true love is hockey. He plays on a Rep team that is on the ice 4-6 times a week. I would love to hear from someone who has type 1 themselves or has a child with type 1 that plays a lot of hockey as it seems like a constant struggle to keep his blood sugars and engery levels at a consistant rate.
Avatar n tn I haven't had the 3 month test, only the 3 hour glucose tolerance test. When I go next week, if he says it's not diabetes, I might see if he can give me a prescription for the drums used in my Blood Sugar device that I still have from my gestational diabetes days. How does the 3 month test work? Do you have to get blood taken every so often during a 3 month time period or do you just use the home device to test every day for a 3 month period?
Avatar n tn I am a Type 1 diabetic, so I am not as familiar with Type 2 diabetes-which I think you are describing. I did look up on http://www.diabetes.org/about-diabetes.jsp, American Diabetes Association website, to make sure I had correct information. It was informative if you want to take a look. It had information about pre-diabetes, when blood glucose levels after fasting are between 100-125. It says diabetes is indicated when fasting blood sugars are 126 or higher.
Avatar f tn I hope to hear from you and I wish you well. Smilerdeb ~ I think you are referring to type 2 diabetes and she has type 1. They are different and are treated differently.
Avatar n tn I was dianosed as insulin resistant, which is a step towards type-2 diabetes. Had I just kept testing my fasting blood glucose, or had this test been run just testing blood sugar and not insulin, I would not have been diagnosed. Low-carb diet with exercise is best for this & type 2 diabetes. When i was diagnosed I was having all the above symptoms. After my diagnosis, I went low-carb (no more than 60grams a day) and exercised 4-5 times a week.
