Common Questions and Answers about Diabetes type kids


Avatar n tn With the way you describe his lifestyle, I'd be more concerned about him developing type 2 diabetes than anything. A visit to the doctor will help understand the medical issues, but it is up to the parents to change habits. Good luck.
Avatar f tn So don't even think you can't do what other kids and adults do because of your diabetes! Just work on learning how to control it to allow you to live the life you want!
Avatar f tn So I read today that diabetes can cause birth defects. Any moms have diabetes before getting pregnant? Any advice not to be nervous.
Avatar n tn On the emotional side, I think that Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes are very similar. Both come along with complications or risks of them, and with psychological & emotional pressures, worries, feeling guilty, feeling angry, feeling despair. Folks with either type of diabetes can also enjoy all the good emotions: hope, contentment, happiness, love, compassion.

Avatar n tn Most have absolutely no idea what type 1 diabetes is, for all of the media publicity is about type 2 diabetes, which has different causes and treatments. I find that most people are fascinated to learn that type 1 is an autoimmune disease, and that it is related to other autoimmune diseases like thyroid disease, rheumatoid arthritis, and Lupus.
Avatar n tn hello everyone, im a regular user of smoking marijuana, and i have juvenile diabetes type one. does the marijuana effect my health in differnet ways becuse i am a diabetic? thanks for the help.
Avatar n tn Hi...I am not a doctor, but I pretty much know everything about Type 1 Diabetes. I am a Type 1 Diabetic and am now 34 years old. I have two little ones as well (4 year old girl and 21 month old boy). My biggest fear is for one of them to get my Disease. I have had extensive conversations with my Endocronologist (She is one of my closest friends), so I know she tells me stuff “off the record”.

Avatar f tn It is always possible to go from Type 2 diabtes to Type 1 Diabetes but never the reverse. Many times a Type 2 Diabetic will be treated as a Type 1 (on the same medications etc) but will not actually BE a Type 1. Reason being the treatments for a Type 1 are also effective on a Type 2 if that severity of treatment is needed. It is believed that Type 2 can be prevented or delayed in its onset by proper diet and exercise just like you would do if you actually had Type 2.
Avatar f tn dnorvellatcomcastdot net. Ask anything you want and I will do my best for you and him. Just know that all diabetics are different. What is good for one may not be good for the other. Take care.

544772 tn?1321288809 Hi. I've had Type I Diabetes for over 37 years now - I was around 3 when i came down with it. My question is for other long term Diabetics. I've noticed over the years that my hypoglycemic reaction symptoms have changed - generally dramatically - at stages of my life. When I was young, I hallucinated. The next incarnation was paralysis of all muscle groups including vocal - I figured it was my body's way of shutting down unnecessary parts in order to keep working.
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 f tn Hello, given your age and your weight, have you been tested for type 1 diabetes? Testing for this involves testing c-peptide, insulin levels, and for antibodies. Please ask your doctor about this, particularly if the medications you have been given seem not to be working very well. Diabetes is surely a shock diagnoses. But it can be manageable. I suggest you look into low carb / ketogenic diet. It can be very helpful.
Avatar n tn And are these patients your father sees Type 2 diabetics? Type 1 diabetes is when the pancreas does not produce insulin. Type 2 diabetes is most often diagnosed in people who are overweight, do not exercise and have a history of neglecting the needs of their bodies. Therefore Type 2 diabetics still produce insulin but their bodies do not use the insulin sufficiently or I could say properly. Anyway, why don't you try talking to your parents, maybe there was some miscommunication.
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 m tn My son was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes almost a year ago now. He's very active in sports but he cant seem to gain any weight now. He's a Pitcher, starting Point Guard and a starting Quarterback for all his teams but I think if I cant fine a solution to his weight problem he going to have to give them up and that would be a tremendous blow to him. All of his friends no him as the consummate athlete who love to play all of his sport with passion and for the love of the game.
Avatar n tn My 25-yr old daughter was diagnosed with Type I diabetes when she was 11 mos old. Because her blood sugars have been out of control since she was a teenager, she now has developed retinopathy and has begun a series of surgeries. And, she was hospitalized for 5 days last week for pancreatitis. She keeps saying she just wants to give up. I along with close family and friends are trying to be very supportive, but she is not willing to make any changes to her lifestyle. We do not know what to do.
Avatar f tn P who sent me for tests that came back as positive for Type 2 Diabetes. I am currently taking Metformin 500mg 2 tablets twice a day. Anyone else been through the same as me? Will I always have diabetes?? When does it become Type 1??
Avatar n tn First of all Type 2 diabetes does run in the family. I had gestational diabetes in two of my pregnancies. Lately but not everysingle day however more often now I am continuously feeling nausiated, at times a headache or mild diziness with it. At times I go to the toilet feeling as if I am going to vomit (but I dont). I am absolutely not pregnant (I had a tubal ligation). there are times when I get shaky or irritable or feel a head rush without food. I am 5'4" inches tall.
Avatar n tn This is wonderful because it must be the hardest sport to regular blood glucose (bg) for. This says a lot about our kids. My daughter is 16 yrs old and was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes last August just before the beginning of her first year of cross country. She's always excelled in sports especially those that require a lot of running and tough training. Having diabetes presented a much tougher fight for her during cross country season.
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 n tn so frustrated....my nine year old was diagnosed type 1 a month ago....her numbers are doing so good but the poor thg feels like crap so frequently that it is affectting things more than the counting carbs and shots!!! she gets numerous tummy aches every day....it is making her grumpy and difficult....endocronologist does not believe its diabetes related but started the same time as diagnosis... wth????? cant find any trends....not only with highs...sometimes shes normal...
Avatar f tn Tell your daughter about these folks, and that they write to tell us that they would do ANYTHING to go back and change their diabetes control. All that being said, many diabetic kids deal with depression, for we have a disease that takes a lot of work to maintain. No breaks, ever. Your daughter's problem has a name: diabulimia. There is a lot of discussion out on the web about this problem. I am going to copy and paste some links here for you: http://diabetestalkfest.com/blog/?
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 I was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at the age of 14. I am now 58 and have 3 grown kids and 4 grandkids.. none have any sign of type 1... I had no problem giving birth and was told they would induce labor early so they babies would not be too big.. If she takes care of her self she can live a long and healthy life...
Avatar f tn You are correct. Having gestational diabetes increases the risk to develop type 2 diabetes later in life. Diabetes is a complex condition caused by genetic and environmental factors. Like all common diseases, there are many risk factors for diabetes. Rarely is one factor alone responsible for causing the disease. Your total risk is made up several different risk factors which include family history, genetic risks, weight, physical activity, history of gestational diabetes, and diet.
