Avatar f tn What are the symptoms of Type 1 Diabetes? I have a child who is extremely tired and thirsty all the time. Should I have him checked for diabetes?
Avatar n tn My 17 year old daughter was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes at age 11. Now all of a sudden for the past week she wakes up in the morning with bld sugars in the 150-200 range but feels lik they are dropping. She has signs of low bld sugar, shaky, heart racing, can't see. As the morning goes on she will drop to 60 after eating & not taking any insulin. What is going on? She is missing school, does your pancreas sometimes work to give her insulin?
Avatar n tn I am 24 years old and have had type 1 diabetes since 1 1/2 years old. I have been on the insulin pump for 4 years now and have experienced much better control....still not where it could be, but way better prior to the pump. Recently I have found myself wondering what is wrong with my memory. I have trouble remembering most of my childhood or even events that happened months ago. I can only truly remember portions of conversations I have. My boyfriend tells me all the time....
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.
Avatar m tn I'm sure your parents would want you to talk with them about it and be seen be a doctor. If in fact you do have (Type 1) diabetes, exercise and eating healthy are very important and it's great that you do that, but they will not get rid of diabetes. If you have diabetes you need to see a doctor and get treatment. Please don't be scared of this or try to avoid it because the results of untreated diabetes can be very severe.

Avatar n tn My wife became a type 1 diabetic at the age of 3 (1951); her 6 year older sister one year later became a type 1 diabetic (1952) - they both weren't suppose to live past the age of about 13. My wife passed at the age of 50. She could have taken better care of her self like her older sister as we just buried her this week at the age of 72. I don't know of any diabetic who has lived as long as her.
Business man2 Let us not forget Type 2 diabetes is associated with obesity, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, lack of daily 30-60 exercise, and above all poor food choices. In its early stage it is possible to reverse diabetes. This does not mean you can ignore lifestyle changes by going back to the bad habits which created your diabetes, it means you must adhere to a diabetic prevention lifestyle or it will return.
Avatar f tn 3%, which she said was ok. *My maternal grandmother has Type 1 Diabetes, and my mother had gestionnal diabetes when she was pregnate. Does this sound like diabetes?
Avatar n tn They could be suffering from DKA which is a medical emergency and needs a trip to the ER. DKA is usually suffered by Type 1's only, but occasionally a type 2 can have it. More dangerous in the short terms are lows. Anything under 60 should be treated. Some people say 70. I would err on the conservative side if the jobs entail anything dangerous like machinery or driving in which case the person should stay over 80.
Avatar m tn Type 1's usually have symptoms before diagnosis (thirst, frequent urination, weight loss, hunger). Type 2's sometimes do, sometimes don't. Yes, let's hope it's a mistake!
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 He stayed in the hospital initially7=8 days which should have been a warning sign and a great indicator. He was released and was having a lot of symptoms that mirrored Type 1 Juvenille symptoms.
1554354 tn?1297175664 Diabetes often goes undiagnosed because many of its symptoms seem so harmless. Often people with type 2 diabetes have no symptoms so they appear normal to others. I don't know Florida laws but in Calif at 19 yo you can see a doctor on your own. If you cannot afford one Google search Free Health Clinics near your town/city. In the meantime you must take care of your body by maintaining normal weight, avoiding sugary and high carbohydrate foods, and do some sort of physical exercise daily.
Avatar n tn A week back 84.6 and post meal 94 I have read a lot about diabetes and I feel that I have all the symptoms of high blood sugar though my measurements are normal. I have made some drastic changes in my diet and physical movement pattern. I lost 8 kilos to reach BMI of 23.9. Doctor has not done any particular test for diabetes but I do not want to insist upon it since the fear of this disease has brought some good changes in my lifestyle which I would like to keep.
Avatar n tn It is such a shame that people know so much about anxiety attacks, but not diabetes? I watched a teacher's eyes glaze over when I was trying to explain type 1 to her. I do think that you have hit the nail on the head. Your comment that anxiety is creating symptoms of hypoglycemia and lead to more anxiety, is in my personal opinion, true. It is a double-edged sword. I do not have diabetes, but have been treated for a panic disorder in the past,(driving).
Avatar n tn I'm also diagnosed type II diabetes, but no meds or symptoms. Diet and Exercise with some supplements has given me consistently good tests. For all these conditions, I still feel just fine every day. If I didn't know I had them, I wouldn't know I had them! Any comments appreciated.

Avatar m tn Type 2 diabetes is often discovered before there are any symptoms, and that is a good thing, because you can begin to do what you need to in order to control it sooner. 7.2 is 129.6 in U.S. numbers. 126 and over for fasting blood sugar is considered diabetes. Your reading two hours after food, 10.8 is 192 which is very high. Normal people without diabetes rarely go above 120 after eating. There is no such thing as insulin tablets.

Avatar n tn I am a Type 1 diabetic, so I am not as familiar with Type 2 diabetes-which I think you are describing. I did look up on http://www.diabetes.org/about-diabetes.jsp, American Diabetes Association website, to make sure I had correct information. It was informative if you want to take a look. It had information about pre-diabetes, when blood glucose levels after fasting are between 100-125. It says diabetes is indicated when fasting blood sugars are 126 or higher.
Avatar m tn If you went from totally normal levels at year 0 to very high levels at year 5, it may also be wise to be tested for type 1 diabetes. This can be adult onset as well. Treatment for type 1 diabetes is always insulin (combined with diet and other lifestyle measures to help management). Hope this is helpful for you.
Avatar m tn Hi, we are not your doctor, so we cannot know for sure what type of diabetes you have. Type 1 diabetes is autoimmune and there is usually an absence of insulin and antibodies may be found. Treatment is injected insulin and lifestyle. Type 2 diabetes is often genetic and lifestyle related and at least early there is plenty of insulin, but it doesn't work very well. Treatment is usually oral medications and lifestyle. From your medication, it would appear that your diabetes is type 2.
Avatar f tn If there's anyone out there who had a similar background (CM Type 1, Syringomyelia without symptoms) and got surgery, what was your experience like? Recovery? I'm curious because I am wanting to start a family in the next 2 years.. and wonder if I should get the surgery before or after I become pregnant (leaning toward before because I don't want to have a baby if I can't care for him/her!) Thoughts? Thanks for reading. Sorry it was such a long post.
Avatar m tn I don`t have overweight problems at all which are common to type 2. And as i understand the people with type 1 Diabetes always need insulin to stay healthy, and if they will dont use insulin their organism will not be able to use sugar. ( it will gather in their blood).
Avatar n tn All of sudden in April 2009 I started getting about 24 hours of flu-like symptoms post anaerobic exercise. Included in this is any kind of aerobic exercise with a significant resistance portion such as a "Hill interval" setting on an elliptical machine. I have taken a huge 5 month break of almost any intense physical activity and the first day back at the gym produces the same symptoms as when I was working out 4-5x a week.
Avatar n tn Hi I have a coronary calcium score of 577 and my heart arteries are serverly calcified. Are open heart operations (bypasses) with good prognosis with type 1 diabetics? I have been on insulin for 32 years since I was 17.
Avatar n tn After 2 weeks of taking it, he got very sick, all the classic symptoms of diabetes. Blood tests revealed that he had T-1 diabetes. After 3 months of strict diet and exercise and 10-15 units of Levimir daily, he has been able to go 10 days now without insulin while averaging 93 BSL. While taking insulin, his BSL would drop into the 50's and 60's. Also at the time of diagnosis the blood test revealed hypothyroidism and he has been taking a generic version of Synthroid.
709686 tn?1277435759 If it is Type 1 Diabetes, you are somehow born with a weak pancreas or abnormal hormone system which causes the lack of insulin production. But about 90% of the diabetes patients are of Type 2 Diabetes which is still remain a myth among the Smart Scientists. Type 2 Diabetes is a diet & lifestyle related illness. Most people put the blame on the Sugar and Carbohydrate for the elevated glucose level in the blood.
