Avatar n tn My husband is a newly diagnosed Type 1 diabetic. He just got out of the hospital with ketoacidosis and had an HA1C of 12.1. His sugars ranged from 160 - 380. We had this checked 6 months ago and everything came out "normal." Anyway, he is now on insulin, but we are having a hard time figuring out the whole diet thing. He has been put on a 75 carb/meal diet. He is 6'3" and weighed 150 lbs at the hospital, so he actually needs to put on weight.
Avatar n tn Hi, It's really great to hear of all these long living diabetic people. I'm 50 and was diagnosed type 1 when I was 17. So far I have nearly always worked full time - earlier as a nurse and more recently as a primary teacher. I have one beautiful daughter now 19 and I suppose that's why I asked the question of life expectancy. She is at uni and plans to be a Lawyer so lots more years before grand children.
Avatar f tn Hello. Just a question, what can I feed my diabetic min-pin that is home cooked? She will not eat any kind of dog food, this is how she got the pancreatitis that caused the diabetes. My vet is of no help, she said that if she won't eat the RX dog foods then just give her white meat chicken, boiled only and brocolli or green beans. That's it and I know that my dog is not getting enough nutrients from this diet. She was diagnosed in May of 2006 at the age of 5.

Avatar n tn I'm not trying to scare you but if you continue that high you may get diabetic complications long before 40 or 50 and they are not pretty. You can have your legs amputated and become blind. You need to talk with your doctor or with a diabetic educator who will tell you more about possible complications and more important will help you come to terms with how to control your blood sugar. You don't have to be miserable but you do have to make significant changes in how you eat.
Avatar n tn Hello Angie7, Are you a type 1 diabetic? I am one of the volunteers here, so keep in mind that I am NOT a medical professional, so you should ALWAYS follow up with your physician with any questions you have. My input is based on experience in caring for my son who is living with type 1. He is 10 and was diagnosed 7 yrs. ago. Angie, The link below goes to a page of the Mayo Clinic website. It tells about pancreatic cysts. http://www.mayoclinic.com/invoke.cfm?
Avatar n tn Depending on the severity of the job and the company, paid by the employer in 2400-6000 euros per month, but a low salary is only 600 euros per month.

My supportive parents and grandparents will also aging at time! The car needs repair, teeth repair, paying taxes, living the life, and so on. !
Avatar m tn Diabetes Solutions by DR. Richard Beirstein , and log onto this website: diabetesdaily.com/forum to listen and learn from those long time diabetic 2 like you discussions. To save yourself, you have to search the internet , to learn and live myfriend, I myself a 20 years plus diabetic 2, now I don't have any leg pain at night , as my A1C keep coming down to 5.6%. and I never need to use Insulin. I use Dr. Beirstein rule:(6,12,12). Again read that book and start living again.
Avatar n tn It's to those folks to whom I am really speaking. I'm usually on another/different diabetic website and you wouldn't believe some of the reasons folks give to get out of exercising.
Avatar n tn Also, I need to let you know that I am not a medical professional, but a mother of a boy who is living with type 1. My son was diagnosed 7 yrs. ago at the age of three. You may have already found this, but below is a link to a yahoo support group. http://health.groups.yahoo.com/group/gastroparesis/ Another idea is to talk to your Endocrinologist and ask. Possibly they have a bulletin board and you can post a flyer and try to start a support group in your area. It does not hurt to ask.
Avatar n tn Hey, I'm Zac, originally from Texas but living in Maine (4 now). I've been diabetic type 1 since I was a young teen. Seriously, I can remember the first minute I knew there was something wrong with my body. After loosing eighteen pounds in a week, gone through at least 100 bottles of soda and water, I was in the hospital with a blood sugar lvl of 823. Years later, things aren't much better. Though our A1c is supposed to be seven or under, the lowest mine has ever been was 8.2. It's 9.

Avatar n tn Recently, my doctor administered a fasting insulin test based on some symptoms I was having which indicated insulin resistance (ie, I have not been diagnosed as diabetic). My fasting test read 9.2. My doctor says there's "nothing to worry about," but my own research indicates that a reading at this level should be taken seriously, as it arguably indicates pre-diabetes at the very least. Any one have any suggestions as to how to proceed with my doctor on this issue?
785584 tn?1273252832 I'm getting infusion treatments of prednisone 500 mg for headache lasting 12 days! Yes! Joy of living with headaches after surgery! Anyway after I'm done I thought he said he'd taper me down! Asked the nurse for that script and she said no that he didn't write one fir that! I questioned being tapered down and she said nope he didn't write one! She didn't ask him and I was too tired to argue! Don't you have to be tapered?? 500 mg of prendisone for 3 days seems like a high dose!
Avatar n tn I am not a physician, but the mom of a type 1 diabetic, and the daughter of a type 2 diabetic. I do not know necessarily that your chances are higher for having a child with diabetes. I would suggest that you discuss your concerns about getting pregnant with your endocrinologist and your OB/GYN.
1809109 tn?1331807377 I know she's strong but I worry every day that she would be tempted to use again. I don't want to loose her again to drugs; those years were a living hell. I can't be there for my munchkin, my poor baby niece isn't handling this well. And I mean who blames her, this is a violent death to see for a 12 year old. My grandpa, god. I love him but he can be a real idiot sometimes; he refuses to accept she's dying. She's in chronic pain, loosing weight left and right and not in any good way.
Avatar n tn Hello I have been living with Type 1 Diabetes for around many years. My hbaic levels since many years has been below 6.5 sometimes even 5.9. I had recently suspected an injury (while doing some strength exercises/lifting weights) in the Gymn as I had expereinced a continuos pain in the back after I came back from the Gymn. To rule out any diabetic complications my Dr had asked me to get all my tests done . All the tests were ok --Hbaic was 6.

Avatar n tn //www.diabetes-book.com/ Maybe it will help her too. She's very lucky to have you to care for her.
Avatar n tn Do these people truly believe every single insulin diabetic will have one or many lows in their diabetic lifetime while working? I can totally understand their reasoning, but who is to say they will have a low while on duty?
Avatar n tn Her fasting glucose revealed that her glucose was 137. Her doctor assumed that she must now have diabetes, and prescribed oral diabetic medication. I am VERY concerned about this new med, and told my mom not to take the medicine until we see a gastro. While going through the chemo, my mother had to be hospitalized several times because her body just couldn't handle the toxins. She also had to have several liters of fluid removed from her abdomen.
Avatar n tn I am a type 1 diabetic, having had it for 22 years! I am very sporty anddon't let it stop me do anything although it is a pain in the bum at times and it really does get me down. Recently when my blood sugar rose to 22 mmol/l 10 minutes after I had a shock from my neighbours, which I feel led me to hit one of my neightbours. I am not usually a b=violent person and am tempted to blame my diabetes or my medication as this is not me or my normaml behaviour.
Avatar n tn While I understand your concerns, I disagree about living with the 1% chance of a catastrophic clot. Compared to what one would be facing if they didn't have the stents emplaced, it sounds like pretty good odds to me, and I'd take the 1% chance every time over the alternative (which is a good chance of suffering a heart attack and possibly dying from it).
Avatar m tn What's it like living with diabetes? What are the major cons/discomforts? What is the worst about diabetes? (besides that 'you can't have sweets') Is it really THAT bad? (sorry, not meaning to offend anybody-I just need to get the message in my head that this is not a pleasant, easily manageable disease... what are the daily challenges? Do you actually feel sick or nauseous? WHo got diabetes around the same time as they got acid reflux problems? Will really appreciate some inputs?
Avatar n tn Im a 17 year old diabetic who has been diabetic for 7 years now, I was told I would have diabetes for the rest of my life and that it would be simple, it wasnt. I came back to school and all my friends left me when they found out I was "diseased." In 9th grade I was getting teased for having diabetes and taking shots so I stopped testing my sugar entirely and just took the shots for how I felt. I went through dka and it made my depression worse.
