Common Questions and Answers about Type 1 diabetes prevalence


Avatar f tn who's incidence/ prevalence is higher in general type 1 or gestational diabetes ? i am unable to find a decent comparison what is the general age of a person detected with type 2 diabetes?
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.

1469903 tn?1286650297 The absolute lack of insulin, usually secondary to a destructive process affecting the insulin producing beta cells in the pancreas, is the main disorder in type 1 diabetes. In type 2 diabetes, there also is a steady decline of beta cells that adds to the process of elevated blood sugars. Essentially, if someone is resistant to insulin, the body can, to some degree, increase production of insulin and overcome the level of resistance.
Avatar n tn I have read here more then once of someone who had diabetes treated for hep c and then there diabetes cleared. sounds to good to be true although I hope it is. Does anyone have any links to share about studies in regards to diabetes and hep c. I asked by by diabetes docotor and my hep c doctor about a link between the two diseases and both said there wasn't one. Since I am not over weight and there is no diabetes in my family I am inclined to think there is a link.
Avatar f tn The vet immediately decided that he had eaten some type of poison or medicine. I told him that I had not seen this. He asked me if he had fallen with a paddling motion of his feet, I told him no. He checked his blood sugar and he said it was 68 which he explained was very low for a dog that age. He also had a fever of 104. The vet decided to keep him and he told me the prognosis was not good, that he believed that he was poisoned.
148588 tn?1465782409 1 per 10,000 people. Obesity is a risk factor for Type 2 diabetes, and the researchers also found that each 1-degree Celsius temperature increase was associated with a 0.173% increase in the prevalence of obesity. Even when the researchers adjusted for the prevalence of obesity in each state, they found that each 1-degree temperature increase was associated with 2.9 additional cases of diabetes per 10,000 people. Overall, the warmer the place, the higher the incidence of diabetes.
Avatar m tn Have any of you been able to get view of the following: Key Oral Presentations at DDW 2007 Favorable Cross-Resistance Profile of HCV-796 and Boceprevir (SCH-503034) and Enhanced Anti-Replicon Activity Mediated By Combination Treatment; R. Ralston, Monday, May 21, 11:15 a.m., Room 206 Pharmacodynamic Analysis of the Antiviral Activity of the Non-Nucleoside Polymerase Inhibitor, HCV-796, in Combination With Peginterferon Alfa-2b in Treatment-Naive Patients With Chronic HCV; E.S.
Avatar f tn Keep in mind, too, that you may be more likely to develop Hashimoto's if you have one of these other conditions. Type 1 diabetes Pernicious Anaemia Addison's Disease Vitiligo Celiac Disease Alopecia Areta Systematic Lupus Erthematosus (SLE) Rheumatoid Arthritis Sjogren's Syndrome Inflammatory Bowel Disease Multiple Sclerosis (MS)" Excerpt from Elaine Moore's article Multiple Autoimmune Syndrome...
Avatar n tn A reduced prevalence of asthma, thought to be a predominantly type 2 helper T-cell (Th2)-mediated disease, has been reported in a population with type 1 diabetes, which is associated with a predominance of type 1 helper T-cells (Th1) cells. This all suggests that, if anything, worsening of the multiple sclerosis (MS) symptoms may be associated with a reduction in asthma symptoms and frequency.
Avatar f tn To demonstrate the strong association of diabetic mastopathy or sclerosing lymphocytic lobulitis with type 1 diabetes mellitus by studying appropriate control groups and to describe risk factors and natural history of the disorder. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS: This was a retrospective cross-sectional study of four groups of patients conducted at a setting tertiary care medical center.
Avatar f tn Chronic infection with HCV is associated with insulin resistance, metabolic syndrome, and type 2 diabetes [61]. The prevalence of type 2 diabetes has been reported to be 14–50% in patients with chronic HCV infection [62]. HCV-associated diabetes is characterized by insulin resistance and does not appear to be associated with antibodies directed towards the beta cells in the islets of Langerhans [63].
Avatar f tn Also, there is a very strong documented connection between type 1 diabetes and MS!!! I could not find any mention of which disease comes first, only that autoimmune thyroid disease can occur together with MS in some individuals. Thanks for bringing up this correlation. I will now be triple sure to take my D3 since I have Hashimoto's!!!!
Avatar n tn In your age group, unless you have type 1 diabetes, the prevalence of obstructive coronary atherosclerosis is very low, and the stress test you have undergone is not 100% sensitive or specific in diagnosing coronary disease, so a positive test may not necessarily indicate coronary disease.
596539 tn?1219982139 I use hydrocortizone cream 1% when it first gets itchy. I have used the Aveeno brand but the equate brand seems to work as good and cheeper. Aveeno oatmeal bath is good for itching also. I have to keep bandaids on mine or I end up itching them or banging against something and they get irritated. I use 70% alochol and Povodon iodine solition for cleaning also. At times I put neosporin or Aquaphor on them.
488823 tn?1218374167 Hepatitis C virus (HCV) causes liver diseases and extrahepatic manifestations, and also contributes to insulin resistance and type 2 diabetes mellitus (DM). The aims of the present study were to examine the incidence of extrahepatic manifestations including lichen planus in HCV-infected patients and to evaluate the relationship between lichen planus and insulin resistance. METHODS: Of 9396 patients with liver diseases presenting to the study hospital, 87 patients (mean age 60.0 +/- 11.
Avatar f tn In utero or early life vitamin D deficiency has been linked to an increased risk of type 1 diabetes (11), asthma (12), and schizophrenia (13,14). Fascinating new data also show that vitamin D regulates placental development and function (15), which suggests that maternal vitamin D status may be associated with adverse outcomes of pregnancy, such as miscarriage, preeclampsia, and preterm birth.
Avatar m tn A priori, persons were categorized as low-risk or high-risk for diabetes based on their age and body mass index, factors that appeared to modify the type 2 diabetes-HCV infection incidence estimates. The overall prevalence of HCV in this population was 0.8%. Among those at high risk for diabetes, persons with HCV infection were more than 11 times as likely as those without HCV infection to develop diabetes (relative hazard, 11.58; 95% confidence interval, 1.39-96.6).
886824 tn?1253740254 About 1 in 5,000 people worldwide are affected with Ehlers-Danlos syndrome (EDS). EDS is a group of genetic conditions that weaken connective tissues. Connective tissues are comprised of proteins that support bones, skin, blood vessels and other organs, like the heart. As such, EDS usually affects the skin, joints and blood vessel walls. Symptoms can range from mild to severe depending on the type of EDS.

Avatar m tn Moderate alcohol consumption has been associated with improved insulin activity, a lower prevalence of type II diabetes and a favorable vascular risk in severely obese. This study aimed to examine the association between light-to-moderate alcohol consumption and severity of nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) in the obese patient. METHOD: A cross-sectional study was performed in severely obese subjects, who underwent liver biopsy during bariatric surgery from October 2004 to April 2005.
Avatar m tn [6–9] Some recent data suggest that patients with chronic liver disease who also have type 2 diabetes or other components of metabolic syndrome may be at risk for more advanced fibrosis. This is especially true for NAFLD[10] and possibly HCV.
Avatar f tn Hives is a classic symptom of Hashimoto's Thyroiditis not to mention pregnancy is a listed trigger of Hashimoto's. 25% of Hashimoto's patients may develop additional conditions such as Type 1 diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, pernicious anaemia, adrenal insufficiency, lupus. Celiac's is also a noted autoimmune disease to be tested with Hashimoto's. Vitamin B12 deficiency mimics MS. Conditions that cause B12 deficiency include celiac's disease and autoimmune pernicious anaemia.
Avatar m tn asthma, eczema and allergic rhinitis, with the Th1-mediated autoimmune conditions; type I diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis and psoriasis. We also identified the prescription rates of inhaled therapy for asthma in patients with Th1-mediated disease. RESULTS: There was a significant increase in the risk of presenting with a Th1-mediated autoimmune condition in patients with a history of allergic disease (standardized prevalence ratio (95% confidence interval) 1.28 (1.18-1.37)).
1550149 tn?1340004330 ANA tests can be false-positive in many conditions, including rheumatoid arthritis, subacute bacterial endocarditis, human immunodeficiency virus infection, liver disease, malignancy, type 1 diabetes, pulmonary fibrosis and multiple sclerosis. False-positive tests also occur in patients with silicone gel implants, pregnant women and the elderly.9 When an ANA test is positive, the nuclear staining pattern is frequently reported. This pattern reflects the intracellular target of ANA.
