Diabetes type s

Common Questions and Answers about Diabetes type s


Avatar f tn Type 1 diabetes means your body no longer produces sufficient insulin and you need to take insulin to replace it. Oral meds of the type used by people with Type 2 will not suffice to control Type 1. The only exception to this is LADA/Type 1.5 may be able to do well for awhile on oral meds because their insulin production decreases more slowly. Also occasionally people with Type I are able to not use insulin or drastically reduced doses of insulin during their "honeymoon period.
Avatar f tn Consuming sugar does not give you gestational diabetes, or type two diabetes. That is a myth. But it still isn't healthy. Just try to enjoy sugar in moderation.
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.
Avatar n tn S K became wnl then I started ARBs again S K started rising.Now I stopped ACE inh /ARBs S. K is Ok so my question is why SK raised now while prev it was normal with ACEinhibitors? What should I do to prevent microalbuminuria? S cr Is normal. should I continue ACE inh /ARBs even if S.K is high?
Avatar n tn I strongly suggest you get the book Using Insulin by John Walsh because it will answer the question in a lot more detail. Some people rely on doctors to adjust doses, but most Type 1's find it is easier to learn how to modify our own insulin use.
Avatar n tn My girlfriend has been diagnose of Type 1 diabetes. Currently she complains of body pains which is on and off in an interval of 2 weeks. She also complains of severe pains in the feet which causes her sleeplessness in the night. What could be the cause? How can we treat it?
Avatar f tn thats an amazing achievment!!! :) Your mum is obviously a very strong lady! :) I've only had it for 5 years and i've had enough!
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 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 I was looking into taking Sweet to Svelte and was wondering about the fact that I take Janumet and am a Type 2 diabetic currently and with high blood pressure medications. I know if I loose weight this should change and I would probably be off the medications. Will there be major issues if I take the Sweet to Svelte?
Avatar f tn If your diabetes is uncontrolled and unmanaged a visit to an Endocrinologist is in order to reevaluate your lifestyle and diabetes medication/s.
Avatar f tn 3%, which she said was ok. *My maternal grandmother has Type 1 Diabetes, and my mother had gestionnal diabetes when she was pregnate. Does this sound like diabetes?
Avatar m tn If you get the news that you have diabetes -whichever Type, it will change your life but it is a manageable condition and you can continue to do the things you love. If this happens let me know and I'll refer you to some websites that have thousands of diabetics of both types who are successfully managing their conditions.
Avatar n tn They could be suffering from DKA which is a medical emergency and needs a trip to the ER. DKA is usually suffered by Type 1's only, but occasionally a type 2 can have it. More dangerous in the short terms are lows. Anything under 60 should be treated. Some people say 70. I would err on the conservative side if the jobs entail anything dangerous like machinery or driving in which case the person should stay over 80.
Avatar n tn In Type 1 diabetes, about 60 percent of those individuals develop kidney disease. I was just wondering - of all the Diabetics on this forum .... how many have had endocrinologists put you on medication to *prevent* kidney failure soon after your were first diagnosed? My endo is really pushing to put me on medication in case (and I stress the words "in case") I may get Kidney Disease. I have no signs of it or have it now. My Kidneys are healthy.
Avatar f tn fats, etc. Do you have Type II diabetes? What medication are you on? The time(s) for taking them can vary depending the medications and how many times/day you have to take them...
Avatar f tn My daughter was diagnosised with Type 1 Diabetes Aug 2008. We have learned how to inject insulin and check her blood sugar numbers. We keep her on a pretty strick diet to ensure that we keep her Blood Sugar Numbers between 80-180. The past two days she has been very low. We have tried to make sure that the insulin that we give her is only enough to cover the food that she has eaten. However, just today, she woke up with her blood sugar #s at 64. She ate about 32 carbs for breakfast.
Avatar n tn What are you referring to when you say the doctor said it's hormones...the diabetes? I am diagnosed with having Adult Diabetes Type 2. I know mine is genetic because my mom and dad both have/had this disorder. I take a variety of different medications to help with my blood sugars. The two main ones that I take are Metformin and an inject-able pen medication called Byetta. Both help me to keep my blood sugars to a manageable level.
Avatar n tn Low carb diet is absolutely the best way to manage diabetes. American Diabetes Association is now also recognizing this. By low carb we mean about 20 - 30 g of carbs per day. Protein should be adequate (can be up to 1.5g/ kg body weight), and healthy unprocessed fats (avoid vegetable oils) for energy balance. HEalthy fats include the fats that come with meats and full fat dairy, nuts, avocado etc.
Avatar n tn Markie is also correct that we still do not know enough about how type 1 happens. Probably type 2 as well. We do know that obesity can diffently cause type 2, while you will find type 1's, upon diagnoses usually experience weight loss and is not associated with obesity in any way that I have ever heard of. There have been recent studies that have created a gray area between the two regarding age and developing diabetes.
Avatar n tn have type 2 diabetes latey bkood sugars beteen 250 -380 seen doctor recently was put o lantus 10u did nothing called doc she said to go up to 15u been a few days should i see a specialst she says she can control has not changed does lantus take awhile to take effect an also o metformin 1000 glipizide and juniva
Avatar f tn If you meant hereditary as in inheriting the diabetes gene/s from one or both parents, the answer is yes. Often children subconsciously pick up on parents diabetic bad habits and carry them into their own adulthood, considered non-hereditary. As far as weight is concerned more and more evidence points to "non-inherited and medicinally induced" diabetes being caused by overweight/obesity. Losing the excess mass has shown to reduce glucose levels.
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 f tn my 24 month old daughter has type 1 diabetes and she is peeing and drinking a lot is that normal even when her blood sugar levels are normal?
Avatar f tn However, it is becoming known that 10-20% of type 2's are actually misdiagnosed and are type 1 or LADA. I myself was mistakenly diagnosed type 2 at 58 when I was in fact LADA (Latent autoimmune diabetes in adults, a variation of type 1) As for the general age of a person with type 2, in general they are older, but as obesity has become an epidemic in the U.S. it is more common for people to be diagnosed with type 2 as children.
Avatar m tn My nephew got type 2 diabetes which got diagnosed when he was admitted to hospital last week. He is 25 years and obese BMI is 29, overweight. He was not active and was lazy so far, he is asking everyone that how long he will be alive ;). Wanted to check if anyone has idea how long one can live by regular exercise and diet without medication? His sugar level with fasting is 129. PPBS is 130. Please let me know if anyone of you have got diabetes when you were 20's and controlling with diet.
