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 f tn He has Type 1 (Juvenile) Diabetes and is an alcoholic. He consumes an average of 6-12 beers per day. I have researched Diabetes extensively. I have also researched Alcoholism. I know that he has to make the decision for himself that he is going to quit drinking. I was hoping to show him some of the responses from this forum. Are you a person who has experienced both Diabetes and Alcoholism? Do you love someone who has been through this?

Avatar n tn frequent urination, excessive thirst and hunger, dramatic weight loss, irritability, weakness and fatigue, and nausea and vomiting. Some other symptoms of type 2 diabetes may include: recurring or hard-to-heal skin, gum, or bladder infections, blurred vision, tingling or numbness in hands or feet, and itchy skin.
Avatar n tn I have been diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes for several years. The diet is the same diet recommended for Type 1 diabetes. Your doctor or The ADA can give you a copy of the recommended diet. The difference in the diet for Type 2 is that you do not have to eat on such a strict schedule. Please be careful to check your blood sugars often. You should not have more than 3 servings of carbs per meal as recommended by the ADA.
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 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.
Avatar n tn My boyfriend has Type 1 Diabetes. For the most part, according to his family, his management of the diabetes has improved with the onset of our relationship. I try to be helpful without being overbearing, as it seems sometimes he is a touch secretive as to not worry me. He has suffered a stroke in his late 20's. He does tend to get emotional, overly stressed about small things, though this is a family trait, as well.
Avatar f tn I am a 23 year old female with type one diabetes. I've been diabetic since I was 3 years old. I am extremely onto health and fitness, and have been most of my life. ,As I'm sure most of other diabetics I've always struggled with weight loss. Currently I am 5'9 and 188 pounds I have probably gained about 40 pounds since I was 20 years olddue to lack of nutrition from the age of 18 to 20. I exercise five days a week I run I wait live for about an hour and a half to two hours a day.
Avatar n tn Hey! I am 22 with type 1 diabetes. I was just diagnosed two years ago. My concern is this: I am getting married in December, and have been wanting to lose weight, but can't seem to find a way to get it off! Interestingly enough, I was scouting the web to see if there was anything on this topic, and found the message posted by lyn01 -- Funny, but I am having the EXACT same problem! I exercise five times a week, with both cardio and weight training.
Avatar n tn Is the pancreatitis caused by her diabetes or gastroenteritis? Is she type II, non insulin dependent? The magic thing to say to try and fix all is avoid everything that makes you sick, but of course when everything makes you sick then what? Personally I think she should eat very small meals and a lot of them, due all her stomach issues. Eating small meals periodically through the day should also help keep her blood sugar in control.
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 My husband has type 2 diabetes and refuses to get treatment. He also has hypertension, sleep apnea and you can feel his heart beat through his chest. Does anyone have a guess on what his life expectancy would be if I can't get him to the doctors.
Avatar m tn i have type 2 diabetes and take metformin. i am trying to lose weight by doing the 2 meal replacement shakes from herbalife. is herbalife bad or good for type 2 diabetes. i drank a shake this morning for breakfast and then tested my blood sugar it was 170 and the night before when i went to bed it was 110. i'm also working out trying to lose weight. does herbalife meal replacement shakes raise your blood sugar, therefore bad for type 2 diabetes ?
Avatar n tn I was relieved to be honest after reading your reply as far was aware i was only sufferer (or so it felt) of type 1 diabetes and cfs. The two conditions dont go well together and affects so many areas. I would be interested in talking further with yourself or your sister if you/her felt able? Unsure where you are based?
Avatar n tn Just wish i can better control my diabetes after exercise I must share one thing..i have been a type 1 diabetic for 13 yrs now and for all newly diagnosed diabetics...exercise is as vital as insulin to prevent complication and to build up ur own confidence. I feel soo much better after going to gym for aerobics or weight training and work out about 1 and half hour at the gym 3 times a week and play squash 1-2 time a week.
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 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 m tn Is it some type of probiotic or what? Sometimes I wish people on this board would stop being so vague and ambiguous in their posts.
Avatar n tn Hi Dalki, Yes, in time your doctor will likely know for sure which type of diabetes you have. In addition to Type 1 and Type 2, there seems to be a type 1.5 ... tho' there's some thought that 1.5s are just in the early stages of Type 1. We DMers (folks with diabetes mellitis) and our docs often call that a honeymoon phase. I hope you're feeling better now that your bloodsugar has begun to come down. Things may remain volatile for a while, so try to be patient with yourself.
Avatar n tn First, let me explain that the cause of type 1 diabetes is very different from the cause of gestational diabetes. Type 1 diabetes has its root in an autoimmune disorder that causes the body's immune systemt to attack and destroy its insulin-producing cells. Gestational diabetes, on the other hand, is (from what I have read in articles about gestational diabetes) caused by the hormonal changes during pregnancy creating a temporary insulin-resistance.
