1469903 tn?1286650297 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. In many cases this actually means the pancreas produces larger than normal quantities of insulin.
Avatar f tn Having God with you in your fight against diabetes makes you feel stronger every time you wake up in the morning. Be always thankful for each new day that God has given you. Do not lose hope since if others can, why can’t you? Complications may arise in the future but if you prepare yourself well, it may not happen or it may have delayed for many years to come. God moves in mysterious ways. For me, I consider having DM type 1 as my second life.
Avatar f tn Glipizide and glyburide are both indicated for adjunctive therapy in the treatment of type 2 diabetes mellitus, where hyperglycemia cannot be controlled by diet and exercise alone. You could ask your doctor about these.
Avatar n tn As a general heuristic, if a person is young, of good weight or perhaps UNDERweight, and shows up with DKA (diabetic ketoacidosis), they can be presumed to have Type 1. Diabetes has been known for hundreds of year. Many hundreds. Its name comes from Latin thru a Greek origin that meant "to walk with legs apart." Odd indeed, but it was documented then that some folks excreted excessive amounts of urine.
Avatar n tn Another 10 to 12 million people suffer from Type 2 (adult onset) diabetes where the pancreas fails to produce enough insulin. Type 2 diabetes is a 'different' disease with symptoms and complications that are similar to Type 1 diabetes. Type 2 diabetics can sometimes control their disease with diet alone or with the help of oral medications.

But is it too early to admit defeat? If we had done the same for cholesterol medications or diabetes medications, or even smoking patches and pills, we’d be paying for it in countless ways. So is there something unique about developing medications for obesity?
Avatar m tn I have Type 2 Diabetes and was put on Victoza yesterday, my doctor wants me to take this for weight loss. I would just like to know if anyone has lost weight or has had any side effects while taking this medication. I was on Byetta but the nausea never stopped and I felt bad all of the time. I took my first dose this morning of Victoza and so far there has been no nausea--I just hope it lasts. Any comments on this medication would greatly be appreciated.
