Avatar n tn Some people are able to control Type 2 diabetes with losing and maintaining healthy weight, lowering carb intake and regular exercise. Some are not, and need medication. It is impossible to answer your question because every diabetic is different and it would depend on how high your numbers were to begin with and what you ate and did. Serious consequences (complications) from diabetes don't occur in 24 hours, they occur over time spent at high numbers.
Avatar n tn Thanks for reposting. It’s easier now to understand your question. Strawberri is correct in that you glucose levels look OK, but you did not disclose when you take your glucose measurements. Normally this is done before you eat, two to fours after you eat, and 10 to 12 hours after you have eaten or drunken any colored liquids. The latter is called fasting. During this time period you may consume only plain water - no sodas, diet or sport drinks. Here is good link on hypoglycemia http://tinyurl.
Avatar n tn I am a 55 year old, 40 pound over weight, black male that has never smoked and drinks alcohol occassionally.

For the past several years, I've been focused on lossing weight with little results.

1353794 tn?1277664884 today i was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes
Avatar m tn I am a 48 year old white male, and I have already had a total of 5 heart attacks (all within the last 5 tears). At first my doctoer thought it was due to my low HDL, as it has been lower that 28 for the last 5 years. But after my last attack, about 3 months ago, the doctors are now thinking that my body is trying to reject the 3 stents the have pkaced in me. This last attack was pretty serious, and we are planning to have a defibri;ator implanted later this month.
3246889 tn?1349974415 Pregnancy brings its own set of joys and problems when you have type 2 diabetes. It wasn’t that long ago that having a child when you have diabetes carried significant risks of injury to both the fetus and the mother. Deciding to become pregnant was taking a serious risk. Today the risk of developing complications is almost the same as those without diabetes *if* you achieve and maintain excellent blood glucose control prior to and during your pregnancy.

In type 1 diabetes, the reservoir of insulin has completely dried up because the body’s own immune system has turned against itself and attacked the cells that make insulin.

Avatar f tn I am 45, with type 2 and have had pneumonia 3 times in left lung -- different spots --within last year. Is this a common issue as a diabetic? (Also I am diagnosed with von willibrands and factor 8 blood issues.) It seems the diabetes and pneumonia are keeping me in a maze of various specialists and thus delaying some surgery to resolve some other issues. Suggestions on how to get one doctor to find time to look over all my conditions?
Avatar n tn I also have hemochromatosis , diabetes (type 2) and extremely high blood pressure which I take meds for the last two (diovan hct, mepropolol, and metformin and zocor for cholestoral), and have had regular phlebotomies (blood letting), for the last year and a half, finally getting my iron levels down to acceptable levels for the hemochromatosis. My doctor is monitoring my heart now and says it is just best to follow this course and hope that the blockage dosent increase.
