Juvenile diabetes type 1 diet

Common Questions and Answers about Juvenile diabetes type 1 diet


Avatar f tn First some definitions. Type 1 Diabetes (also known as Juvenile Diabetes) is when your pancreas fails and no longer produces any Insulin. Type 2 Diabetes is when your pancreas still produces Insulin but your body does not use it as effectively as it should. For this reason Type 1 is considered more serious but both are treatable and controlable so that the person may live a relatively or almost completely normal life.
Avatar n tn Hearing the words Juvenile Diabetes associated with Type 1 throws me off obviously because I was not diagnosed as a juvenile. But also the words Insulin Dependent are associated with the Type 1. So I DO fit into that category. Awhile back a doctor I was seeing mentioned sopmething about there being a third kind of diabetes but not formerly recognized. Anyone have any clue what I should say to people or doctors when they ask me if I have type one or type two diabetes?
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 He is supposed to go back and have it checked again, only fasting. What are the chances this is Type-1 diabetes and can children outgrow it? Some people have said yes and others no.
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 I have had type 1 diabetes for 10 years for at least 3 years have been suffering cfs type symptems,swollen glands, headache,burning eyes sensation and generally feeling awful from head to toe.I was also found to have low cortisol but when i had the synachtathan?(i know its spelt wrong)test my stress response was normal.Also i had low testosterone which has now been rectified,non of this has helped.
Avatar n tn hello everyone, im a regular user of smoking marijuana, and i have juvenile diabetes type one. does the marijuana effect my health in differnet ways becuse i am a diabetic? thanks for the help.
Avatar n tn Mu son was diagnosed with type 1 juvenille diabetes at age of 5 weeks but we believe he was born with it at birth because his blood sugar was very low and at age of 5 weeks he was diagnosed with type 1 juvenile diabetes. He is now 9 years old.
Avatar n tn I don't know if you know this, but it might help both you and your son to know that each low can have different combinations of symptoms. But in the 38 years that I have been a type 1, I have learned ALL of the possible symptoms so that I can recognize any combinations. He will, too, in time.
Avatar n tn student, None of us are physicians, but volunteers who either have type 1 or as a parent or family member who are very involved with diabetes. With type 1 the beta cells are destroyed in the pancreas due to the autoimmune response. I agree with Markie, it is usually triggered by something and many cases has a genetic factor that comes into play. Keep in mind there are also many cases that doctors cannot find a genetic reason.
Avatar n tn died I thought I'd lost 10kg weight over two months thru grief! but no it was Type 1 diabetes....apart from still being grief stricken I find it so hard to keep my blood sugars in control from 2.3 up to 20's.. I'm not a big eater anyway and quite honestly I'm sick of food completely and worrying about everything I put in my mouth will do to me. I don't know if I feel depressed thru trying to keep my blood sugars in right range or thru the death of my best mate!
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 I am so sorry that your friend is having this emotional seesaw problem. I am hesitant to blame her mood swings entirely on diabetes, for many type 1 diabetics are even-tempered and happy people, but I DO want to tell you that many parents notice that their type 1 children are irritable or hyperactive or just "not themselves" when glucose levels are either high or low. So my first suggestion to you is to encourage her to try to even out the glucose levels.
Avatar n tn My teenage son was recently diagnosed with type 1 diabetes. Being a typical growing teenage boy, the temptation to snack often and on anything under the sun, is a constant battle. This has caused severe spikes in his blood sugar levels and I constantly worry about what long term effects this might have on his organs. Could you please tell me what complications over time can occur from high blood sugar levels.
Avatar n tn Weight gain and type 1 diabetes is a very serious problem. I would like to suggest that if it is at all possible to bring in a type 1 diabetes nutritional specialist that may help out with information that can help with weight loss. There is another website that I would recommend dealing with this subject. It is www.childrenwithdiabetes.com/dteam/indexweight_2002.htm. This is a well known and very much respected site.
Avatar n tn Having diabetes has really opened my eyes to this disease, even though I should have been much more aware, considering my grandfather died of complications from Type 1 diabetes and currently my grandmother and aunt (same side of the family) have type 2. Again, I'm very happy this forum exists and thanks in advance for any help, tips or suggestions you can offer me!!
Avatar n tn I was recently diagnosed with type 1 diabetes one and a half months ago. I started taking insulin novomix since last one month. My highest sugar reading was 469.
Avatar n tn Dear pooky bear, Thank you for contacting the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. I have a son diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at eight and is now 27. I am not a physician and am unable to provide you with medical advice. I can share my knowledge of diabetes and our own experience. There are two types of diabetes. Type 1 or juvenile onset requires insulin to live because the pancreas is unable to produce it on its own.
Avatar n tn I am not a doctor, but I know enough to say that a 5-year-old who is not overweight is more-than-extremely-unlikely to have type 2. And the amount of sugar he eats will not cause diabetes. Type 1 results from a combination of genetics and getting some sort of virus that triggers the body's antibodies to attack the pancreas. Diet and body weight have no impact on whether this happens or not, as least as far as modern medicine knows.
1469903 tn?1286650297 There are two major types of diabetes, called type 1 and type 2. Type 1 diabetes was also called insulin dependent diabetes mellitus (IDDM), or juvenile onset diabetes mellitus. In type 1 diabetes, the pancreas undergoes an autoimmune attack by the body itself, and is rendered incapable of making insulin. Abnormal antibodies have been found in the majority of patients with type 1 diabetes. Antibodies are proteins in the blood that are part of the body's immune system.
Avatar n tn Type 1(juvenile) diabetes is most often diagnosed in childhood, but young adults and seniors can develop type 1 diabetes. Type 1 diabetes occurs when the persons pancreas stops producing insulin, resulting in the rise of blood sugar. Because Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmunine disease (like lupus or rheumatoid arthritis), the person's own immune system destroys the insulin-producing cells of the pancreas. More than 1 million Americans have Type 1 diabetes, for which there is no cure.
Avatar n tn More important how long has this person been a type 1? I am 42 years old and was diagnosed with juvenile diabetes at age 2. I have many complications now. I'm surprised I made it this long.
300707 tn?1192419922 hey everyone! ok so on september 26-2007 i was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes. i am 15 years old and everything is still so new to me. and i am really scared because me and the doctor havent got my blood sugar regulated yet.but anywasy i was in the hospital for 3 days those were the most scariest days of my life i had to get 4 ivys and on top of that neddles are my scariest fear lol but not anymore1thank goodness..
Avatar n tn I know too much about diabetes and its complications, that made things even worse. I just searched and searched the journals about type 1 diabetes and got scared by the poor prognosis. I'm a christian and I just can't understand why god gave me such a disease, I blamed god for that. Type 1 DM is very rare in Chinese, the incidence is around 0.14/100000 per year. Why am I so unfortunate?
Avatar n tn My daughter does have Type 1. Although it is unusual for adults to develop the illness, it happens occasionally. Also, my daughter ALWAYS ate a low carb, low sugar diet, with only occasional "fattening" foods. As a result, she is quite thin. In addition, she exercises regularly and is extremely athletic. She may well have had the illness for some time before it was diagnosed, following gestational diabetes.
1756762 tn?1312607888 I am 24 and I was diagnosed with juvenile diabetes this year. Within the past few days I have been having some really bad stomach pain and knee pain. I have never had these pains before. Every morning when I wake up my knees are achy. My stomach is sore all day. I have an appt with my doctor but it won't be for some time. If anyone has any ideas, please let me know. I will run all possibilities by my doctor.
Avatar n tn She is 6 years old and was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes 1 1/2 years ago. Just a month ago she started complaining about stomach pain around her belly button. She only complains when she's really in pain. She also loves school and have been missing a lot of school because of the pain. At first it started out happening about every few days then it got more and more and now it was happening constantly. She said that she was always in pain but at times it would hurt very badly.
Avatar n tn Hello everyone, While kebranegast is certainly entitled to his opinion, as one of the moderators in this forum with many years of experience with type 1 diabetes, I am compelled to jump in and tell anyone who may take his post to heart that type 1 diabetes can in no way be cured by marijuanna. It is a medical fact that with type 1 the beta cells are destroyed in the pancreas and require insulin to sustain your lives. Marijuanna can't cure it.
