Common Questions and Answers about Type 1 diabetes mellitus urine


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 m tn Diabetes is a Greek word meaning large amounts of urine. Both diabetes mellitus and diabetes insipidus fall into this realm but both are separate mechanisms. This forum deals mostly with type 2 diabetes, people who have high blood sugar levels [mellitus]. Diabetes insipidus is kidney related. For best answers, the forum to post on is Kidney Disease & Disorders.
Avatar m tn Hello and hope you are doing well. For the diagnosis of diabetes insipidus, a 24-hour urine collection for determination of urine volume, along with serum electrolytes and glucose, simultaneous plasma and urinary osmolality and plasma antidiuretic hormone (ADH) level. This is to be performed with water deprivation, as at this time ADH release is the highest and the urine is the most concentrated. Please have this test done for a confirmatory diagnosis. Hope this helped and do keep us posted.

568322 tn?1370169040 Insulin resistance is the major feature of the metabolic syndrome and depends on insulin secretion and insulin sensitivity. In chronic hepatitis C, insulin resistance and type 2 diabetes mellitus are more often seen than in healthy controls or chronic hepatitis B patients. Hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection promotes insulin resistance, mainly by increased TNF production together with enhancement of suppressor of cytokine (SOC-3); both events block PI3K and Akt phosphorylation.
Avatar n tn Kim Eugene Hill ================================================= Dear Kim Diabetes Mellitus can effect the urinary tract in many ways. Problems with erectile dysfunction, retrograde ejaculation, urinary tract infections, voiding dysfunction, and kidney decreased function are possible. In your case, foamy urine is often associated with elevated protein levels in the urine. Protein is spilled in the urine with certain types of renal (kidney) damage.
Avatar n tn A frenulum tag too can cause this type of sensation. Diabetes mellitus and diabetes insipidus too should be ruled out. Since I cannot examine you and know other related conditions you may be having, nor is a detailed history possible on net, I have listed the various possibilities that should be looked into. Please consult your PCP for primary examination followed by proper referral to an urologist. Take care!
Avatar n tn a T-cell to make sure that a cell will not attack a healthy cell, if it does, it is sent for programmed cell death. In type 1 diabetes mellitus, T-cells that are programmed to destroy the islets of Langerhans, which produce insulin, evade the normal "checks-and-balances" and destroy all of the islets, resulting in diabetes.
Avatar n tn Hello, From the reports which you have sent,it is clearly evident that your mother is suffering from diabetes mellitus which is most probably type-II diabetes and she also has got mild kidney disease because of diabetes. I sincerely advsie you to consult a diabetologist and make sure that her blood sugar levels are well under control.All other investigations are within normal limits. Hope it helps.
Avatar m tn Thanks but I don't have any of the other symptoms of diabetes (polydipsia etc.), I have no family history of type 1 diabetes and I am too young and slim to have type 2 (17 years old, BMI 21). My doctor did a fasting blood glucose which turned out normal, a urinalysis and CBC which were fine and Im being referred for a kidney ultrasound and bladder retention scan. They have no clue what could be causing this, it doesn't even seem to be disturbing my U&Es, what could to be???
Avatar f tn I'm a 53 year old male with type 2 diabetes mellitus.  I've been diagnosed with GAD,  depression,  2 inguinal hernias, obesity. In February 2017 I was urinating more than I thought I should. So I went into my doctor.  They found microscopic hematuria in my urine 3-10hpf.  They referred me to a urologist.  When I went to the urologist they did another urinalysis,  rectal check,  CT  scan of my abdominal and pelvic areas, cyctoscopy,  and a PSA blood draw. My PSA level was a 2.
Avatar f tn fasting plasma glucose level from 110 mg/dL - 125 mg/dL. Diabetes - 126mg/dL and over. Type 1 and type 2 diabetes mellitus causes a condition called diabetic nephropathy, which is the leading cause of kidney disease in the United States.
Avatar f tn Hi Thanks for writing to the forum! Extreme thirst is seen in diabetes, both diabetes mellitus and diabetes insipidus. You need to get your blood sugar and adrenal gland function done along with kidney function test. Hope this helps. It is difficult to comment beyond this at this stage. Do consult your doctor. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
Avatar n tn It sounds as if the MD is thinking that the vomiting is due to virus (hence, only give water to avoid dehydration) and is not taking into consideration the dangers of ketones in a type 1 diabetic. I, too, would question the advice given by the doctor. It is possible that the child has high glucose levels because of a virus, but still the ketones should be watched carefully and insulin increased given appropriately to lower those 300 levels to normal, sick or no.

Avatar f tn Glucophage affects the action of insulin and is useful in reducing a number of the symptoms and complications of PCOS and also useful in the management of irregular periods, ovulation induction, weight loss, prevention of type 2 diabetes, and prevention of gestational diabetes mellitus in women with PCOS. Weight loss can help reduce or prevent many of the complications associated with PCOS. You can discuss these treatment options with a gynecologist/ endocrinologist and start the treatment.
Avatar m tn Less well known is that ACE can be significantly elevated in a number of other conditions including multiple sclerosis, Addison’s disease, hyperthyroidism, diabetes mellitus, alcoholic hepatitis, peptic ulcer, and the nephritic syndrome and, perhaps, with chronic fatigue syndrome. Other pulmonary disorders with significantly increased ACE include emphysema, asthma and lung cancer. The possibility of adrenal insufficiency is intriguing.
Avatar n tn Like I said, you need to clarify if you are Type 1 or Type 2 as that will make a difference in your management. Are you overweight or not? Do you have another autoimmune disease like thyroid? Be sure the doctor does the tests. Congratulations on your marriage.
Avatar m tn Again, there are a lot of causes for this symptom, ranging from urinary tract infection to systemic diseases like diabetes mellitus, or even an emotional etiology. It would be best to consult your doctor for reevaluation. Good luck.
Avatar f tn Possible Uncontrolled Diabetes ,or one of the several different types that exist,Type 1 ,Type 2, Mellitus, Insipidus, Late Onset Autoimmune, etc.. Reports exist that would question the diagnostic quality of the A1C test for Diabetes so don't stop their consider checking glucose yourself .Thyroid testing the Free T3 Free T4 better than THS test(Thyroid Stimulating Hormone). Hormones are in control of significant body functions,autonomic (automatic functions that require no real thought.
Avatar n tn This results in bothersome and sometimes serious symptoms, as well as malnutrition, because food is not being digested properly. Gastroparesis may be caused by various conditions such as diabetes mellitus, certain disorders of the nervous system, or certain drugs. Often however, no cause can be found. Usually, the physician prescribes medication to stimulate the stomach to contract. The purpose of the gastroparesis diet is to reduce symptoms and maintain adequate fluids and nutrition.

Incidence is reported in a number of different ways, which makes comparison between studies difficult.
Avatar n tn Metabolic diseases like diabetes (which you said has been ruled out), thyroid disorders or diabetes insipidus (not the same as diabetes mellitus) can be considered. The latter disease can be evaluated with a water restriction test. As for the cholesterol, I agree with the lifestyle changes. If this is not enough to bring the cholesterol down, medications like the various statin class of drugs can be considered. These options can be discussed with your personal physician.
1916673 tn?1420236870 Low sodium levels are also common with prolonged vomiting and/or diarrhea. Addison’s disease, poorly controlled diabetes mellitus, diuretics including furosemide and liver disease are also likely to reduce sodium levels to below normal. T4 (1.0 - 4.7 ug/dL) T4 is one of two major hormones produced by the thyroid gland. The T4 test is one of several that can help identify hypothyroidism, which involves an under-active thyroid gland in dogs.
Avatar f tn Yes GS-9190 is a PI that Gilead has in phase 2 clinical trials. I have heard of someone in Florida who has been approved to join the study. He has advanced liver disease so time is of the essence for him. Gilead is a SF Bay Area bio company who does R&D and manufactures Hepatitis drugs, HIV treatment and they are working on anti-fibrosis drugs also.
