Type 1 diabetes symptoms for women

Common Questions and Answers about Type 1 diabetes symptoms for women


521895 tn?1212597611 I'm not worried about GETTING pregnant, but I am a little worried about my brittle type 1 diabetes and the extreme swings - I go from high to low very quickly and vice versa - it's extremely difficult to stay in range even on a strict diet and insulin pump. When it comes time for me to get pregnant, what do I have to worry about? I'm most worried about seizures right now - will I be able to carry a baby if I'm prone to getting hypogylycemic related seizures? Thanks in advance.
Avatar f tn Hi! Strange that no one got back to you before this. Me, I just have not been here The lab tests should have told you what type diabetic she is. A fasting (no food or drink(water ok) from midnight the previous night) blood test done twice on two different days would tell you if she is a t-1 or t-12. Also having an A1C test to see what he rsugar levels have been running for the past 3 months. Didn't you talk to the doctor? If not, I would certainly get those tests done that I mentioned.
Avatar n tn I'm 21 years old in college, and I have had type 1 diabetes for 12 years now, and i have always eaten good, and exercised regularly, but just recently, i wanted to lose some weight, around 10 pounds, but for some reason i am finding it really hard to lose weight. I work out about 3-4 times a week. Usually i do a lot of cardio to burn the calories, so about 2 miles on the treadmill. But i still cant lose any weight. I was just wondering if being diabetic had something to do with that.
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 was reading the thread that was posted down the way about svr for type 1's and i'm wondering if they stayed svr. and do you know any type 1's that stayed clear, for more then a couple of years. i heard somewhere that even though type 1's clear, the virus eventually does come back. i don't know if that is true, so i'm wondering about it. i do not mean to bring this up to discourage anyone i just want to know if any type 1's cleared and stayed virus free.
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 I have told her about my condition and we would like to find out more about the effects of HSV-2 on diabetes type 2 patients, because we would really want more information as it would help us in our relationship. 1) What is it like for women with diabetes and HSV-2? 2) Do the symptoms alleviate over time, like normal HSV-2 people? 3) How do you cope with the conditions? 4) Is there any hope in such a situation?
Avatar f tn They can also test for antibodies. Adult onset type 1 is more common in women who had gestational diabetes. It the oral meds are not controlling blood sugars well, do not hesitate to ask your dr to let you go on insulin. Insulin makes control much easier and better compared to oral meds, in many cases. Anyway, please be aggressive about diabetes management. You havew young kids that need you to stay healthy.
Avatar n tn be sure to explore the emotional support issues, too. I have had Type 1 for over 35 years. I was diabetic for some of HS, all of college, and all of grad school. I've travelled the world, am happily married, am a college professor and an active community volunteer. My point, Minerva, is that if you discover that "now" is not the right time to study in London, that's simply a decision about "now" ...
Avatar f tn Also I get very tired and dizzy after eating, sometimes I can barely keep my eyes open and if I'm in a position to I will take a nap. I asked my doctor to give me a test for either hypoglycemia or diabetes II (as my grand father had this) but he refused. He said I wasn't heavy enough and more than likely my condition was down to my "low" iron count ( he said 17 it should be 20??). Any ideas what this could be down to??
1469903 tn?1286650297 • high amounts of glucose in the urine, which leads to dehydration and causes increased thirst and water consumption; • weight loss despite an increase in appetite; • fatigue; • nausea; • vomiting; • bladder, skin, and vaginal infections; • blurred vision; and • lethargy What is diabetes? Diabetes mellitus is a group of metabolic diseases characterized by high blood sugar (glucose) levels, that result from defects in insulin secretion, or action, or both.
Avatar f tn In most cases of true Gestational Diabetes it is gone as soon as the placenta is expelled, it is related to hormonesthat cause your cells to be insulin resistant For some women, they still have diabetic symptoms even after the baby (placenta) is born, but most of them are thought to probably have had undetected Type 2 (rarely Type 1) Diabetes even before they were pregnant..
299260 tn?1304219705 I was thinking that maybe I Oed last week when I was having tons of CM, and so if I did, although I was feeling AF type of symptoms and not O, we missed our oportunity...I know I felt O type of symptoms before the 23rd (my O estimate) so I am very confused...but I just hope is my cycle trying to get back to normal and that's it....my worry is that PCOS (the recent diagnosis) is making an impact on my cycles....I've gone up to cd33 before...and today I think I am cd31....
299260 tn?1304219705 The fact that you only spotted light brown and for only 1 day is nothing to worry about, I promise! :) I had the exact same thing happen to me when I was pregnant with Kayln, and actually I would spot for 2 days (light brown) every 30 days for the first 3 months when AF was due. So when my 4th month rolled around, i was expecting it but I never spotted again. It's SO common to have some spotting in early pregnancy, and since it was light brown, that's just old blood!
Avatar n tn I know that Zelnorm has been prescribed for stomach problems, but I would also look into a doctor who specializes in type 1 diabetes and gastro problems. In my personal opinion, this is a very underdiagnosed problem. There are new drugs that help with nausea and other problems with the gut. I would like you to follow LRS's advice for a contact with JDRF's Online Diabetes Support Team. Please mention "gastroparesis". I am part of that team and would like to talk to you one on one.
1351808 tn?1276904027 Like FPG, HbA1c can also help identify individuals with pre-diabetes, those with sugar levels that are abnormal but not enough to diagnose diabetes. For FGP, individuals with a blood sugar level of 100-125 mg/dl have pre-diabetes; with HbA1c the range is 5.7%-6.4%.
Avatar n tn I have had high blood pressure for over three years, and as of the last six months, its been almost impossible to control. Have ended up in ER a number of times when it has gone about 190/120. Just has stress test - positive for exercise induced ischemia. I am now scheduled to go for nuclear perfusion on Sept 30. I have had episodes of tingling/numbness if left hand and arm. Have had a few bouts of chest pain, although not severe.
Avatar n tn I have diabetes type 2 which I suspect is a birth defect from my father's exposure WWII to a chemical such as 2-butoyxethanol (it causes endocrine disruption that sometimes is called diabetes) Anyway, these diabetes (Type I & Type 2) are considered to be autoimmune things and that is what 2-butoxyethanol does ... a lot of autoimmune things and blood sugar high or low ... or blood pressure high or low and many things related to the endocrine system, are what it attacks.
Avatar n tn Can't determine specific food triggers other than wine which I've stopped drinking as it intensified the symptoms. Only 1 glass with dinner would rev up my entire nervous system. SO uncomfortable. Don't drink any other type of alcohol. I've had a fasting glucose test (normal) but wondered why I would get a fasting glucose when I feel best in the AM before eating/between meals. As soon as I eat something, my body, metabolism, nervous system etc. goes into overdrive. Insulin reaction??
Avatar n tn but still,i get tired of people saying that they don't know they have it because they have no symptoms blah blah blah...well..thats why there are free cliniics for,,to get tested i do have friend i can trust so we do talk,he he oral herpes. i wish one day there would be cure or at least a vaccine to permanntyl suppress it i been on valtrex and it's been working great good luck to all of us,,,and we are not dirty or whatever people say...

299260 tn?1304219705 2 fats. So, for example, I'll have a toasted English muffin with 2 tsps butter, 1 scrambled egg, 1 ounce of cheese & a slice of tomato (tomato is a freebie). For my 9:30 snack, I can have a Dannon Light & Fit yogurt & a piece of fruit, meaning a small orange, an apple or 1/2 banana. For lunch at noon, I can have 2 starches, 1 fruit, 2 vegetables, 4 ounces of protein & 2 fats.
Avatar n tn I was tested for diabetes and although my results were low they weren't low enough to say I had Diabetes - during an 8 hour test I had a hypoglycemic attack, however further monitoring of my blood sugar shows normal even when my symptoms are severe.
299260 tn?1304219705 I already started feeling AF type of symptoms and I have no sore bbs, just tender and full, which is normal for me. I am thinking that if my temp rises tomorrow I might do a test, if not, I guess I will wait. I have to say that the good thing about thinking about my chart and "suppose" possibilites is that is has helped me to keep my mind busy and not stress about the LAP. Happy Wednesday!
299260 tn?1304219705 I go back to work on Saturday, just 1 day a week for now. Then in march I'll bump it to 2-3 days a week. I don't want her to go to daycare, so my mom and sean's mom will be babysitting while we're at work if it's at night. If I work during the day then Sean will watch her till I get off and then he'll go to work. Lots of rearranging in our work schedules! :) I don't want to spend too much time away from her, so i;m just going to be part time till it picks up this summer at work.
299260 tn?1304219705 I will be happy if I get AF on time or around the time (cz I am not sure I Oed, and I am afraid I will not get AF for the wrong reasons), but like we always do here, I am hoping for a BFP. How are you feeling? you are already 1/2 way!! Sore BBS are a great sign, are you taking meds that can have this effect? MrSpace: I am so sorry about your mom...For sure I will say a prayer for her! Leighanne: Congrats on the audit report! I know how that feels :o) Candie: keep up the BDing!
