Type 1 diabetes diet adults

Common Questions and Answers about Type 1 diabetes diet adults


Avatar f tn It is always possible to go from Type 2 diabtes to Type 1 Diabetes but never the reverse. Many times a Type 2 Diabetic will be treated as a Type 1 (on the same medications etc) but will not actually BE a Type 1. Reason being the treatments for a Type 1 are also effective on a Type 2 if that severity of treatment is needed. It is believed that Type 2 can be prevented or delayed in its onset by proper diet and exercise just like you would do if you actually had Type 2.
Avatar f tn Latent Autoimmune Diabetes of Adults is a condition that can happen in people with family histories of Type 1 or Type 2 Diabetes. Contrary to popular belief, some people with LADA have body mass indexes between 24 and 34.9. In other words, some people with LADA may be overweight or obese. LADA occurs in people age 20 and older. LADA is often mistaken for type 2 diabetes, mainly in people who are overweight or obese.
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.
798555 tn?1292791151 Prediabetes is usually seen as a precursor to type 2 type diabetes, which is not the autoimmune type. Type 2 diabetes, was known as adult onset type, has a strong genetic component and is often associated with insulin resistance. This forces the pancreas to work harder and eventually it can't produce enough insulin. Type 1 is autoimmune type. This happens when the insulin producing cells of the pancreas are attacked by antibodies which destroy them.
Avatar n tn It depends on whether the family history is for type 1 or type 2 diabetes. If type 1, which has an autoimmune disorder as its cause, then what he eats will not affect whether he becomes diabetic in any way. But if the family history is type 2, then yes, diet can help. Type 1 happens usually with no family history of type 1 diabetes. I have read that it is thought that often a child who becomes a type 1 diabetic inherits one faulty gene from each of two healthy parents.
Avatar f tn Hi, I would share your concern that your child could be developing type 1 diabetes. Children's blood sugars are typically lower than adults, and a result in the high 50s or 60s can be 'normal' for a fasting level. People without diabetes (or risk for diabetes) will typically never go above 120 (and usually their blood sugar would be tightly controlled in a narrow range all the time). The highs that you are seeing are concerning, particularly that he didn't have much carbs.
Avatar f tn Has anyone been diagnosed with Type 1.5 diabetes - Latent Autoimmune Diabetes in Adults?
Avatar f tn 51:03 In the United States, 1 in 3 people will have Type 2 diabetes by 2050 if current trends continue, according to a new report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The projections, released today, are alarming to U.S. health officials, who say the numbers highlight the need for interventions to keep the number of new cases from climbing. Currently, 1 in 10 Americans has Type 2 diabetes.
Avatar m tn glad to hear she is using low carb as part of management. has she been tested in case she is type 1 diabetes? This can happen even in adults.
1469903 tn?1286650297 disease of the blood vessels (both small and large) which can damage the eye, kidneys, nerves, and heart may occur • Diabetes treatment depends on the type and severity of the diabetes. Type 1 diabetes is treated with insulin, exercise, and a diabetic diet. Type 2 diabetes is first treated with weight reduction, a diabetic diet, and exercise. When these measures fail to control the elevated blood sugars, oral medications are used.
5274485 tn?1385863767 Latent Autoimmune Diabetes is an extremely urgent condition. Like Type 2 Diabetes, people with LADA do represent with insulin resistance. However, the condition is autoimmune, like Type 1. People with Latent Autoimmune carry the exact same complication risk as those with Type 2-stroke, heart attacks and heart disease. Contrary to popular beliefs, some people who have LADA ARE overweight or obese. Furthermore, some people do carry family history of diabetes, regardless of the actual type.
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 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.
Avatar n tn At time my hands shake so much I cannot even write a check. Diabetes runs in my Mother`s family and she has type 1. I am 47 years old, and need to loose about 25-30 pounds. I always fell lousy and have a lot of anxiety. What are my chances of getting diabetes and is a low carb diet my only solution?
Avatar n tn While none of us here is a physician, we know a lot about diabetes from our experiences and readings/conversations with other diabetics and docs. Type 1 diabetes, an auto-immune disease begins most frequently in young people but many adults can develop it, also. It is not related to weight or diet. Most Type 1s are slim at diagnosis. Frequent urination, insatiable thirst and hunger, unexplained weight loss, vision changes, etc are all common symptoms of diabetes.
Avatar n tn My daughter has had diabetes for 25 years (type 1) and is having a battle with anxiety, depression and terrible mood swings. Is this normal?
Avatar m tn I was wondering if I should get tested for type 2 diabetes and if I have it, what medications work best without too many side effects? What does it sound like to you all? P.S. I am obese.
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.
872485 tn?1240607162 I'm also a little surprised that your doctor didn't look at the potential of you being a LADA [latent autoimmune diabetes in adults] patient, also known as type 1.5 diabetes. Here is a Google search on type 1.5 and lada. See if you can relate http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&client=firefox-a&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&hs=vu8&ei=QM8uStisMqWEtAPOorTCCA&sa=X&oi=spell&resnum=0&ct=result&cd=1&q=type+1.
Avatar n tn The hunger, thinness and fatigue DO sound suspicious of type 1 diabetes, for these are all frequently present in type 1 kids and teens. Another symptom that she would be showing if diabetic would be excessive thirst, and you have not mentioned this as a symptom she displays. I think you would be smart to have her tested for diabetes.
Avatar n tn Many overweight folks who develop diabetes have Type 2, but you haven't mentioned whether you have Type 2 or Type 1. Do you know which type you have? Folks with Type 2 who return to a healthy weight can often stop taking meds and can control their diabetes with exercise and a sensible diet. Technically, however, I don't think they are cured because if they drop their good self-care, their symptoms (and potential risks for other nasty complications) will all return).
Avatar m tn I sent you a PM with some info I found that might help you. It is on other factors that can casue type II in normal weight adults. Hope it helps.
Avatar f tn My son was diagnosed with Diabetes 1 yesterday and we are surprised it is type 1. I always thought type 1 was juvenile diabetes! Wow was I wrong. Does anyone have any advise to help him out?
Avatar f tn In addition, almost half of those with fatty liver were in the upper quartile for fasting insulin concentration, a marker of insulin resistance, compared with 17% of those without fatty liver. During the follow-up period, less than 1% of those without fatty liver developed type 2 diabetes compared with 4% of those with fatty liver. After adjusting for insulin resistance at the start of the study, the risk of developing type 2 diabetes was still higher among those with fatty liver.
Avatar n tn LOL Is it any wonder that we have a nation of overweight children who grow up to be overweight adults, many of whom end with type II diabetes?
Avatar n tn Yes, it is very common for people, particularly adults to get misdiagnosed with type 2 when they actually have type 1. This is even more likely when it is considered that type 1 in adults may not develop so quickly as it does in children, so it may take a while before blood sugars go from high to dangerously high.
146021 tn?1237208487 Types of Diabetes The three main types of diabetes are type 1, type 2, and gestational diabetes. Type 1 diabetes, formerly called juvenile diabetes, is usually first diagnosed in children, teenagers, or young adults. In this form of diabetes, the beta cells of the pancreas no longer make insulin because the body's immune system has attacked and destroyed them. Type 2 diabetes, formerly called adult-onset diabetes, is the most common form.
