Type 1 diabetes treatment medicine

Common Questions and Answers about Type 1 diabetes treatment medicine


Avatar f tn Some people with Diabetes Type 2 need oral medications and others need insulin. (Type 2 diabetes means they don't produce enough insulin. Type 1 means they don't produce ANY insulin.
Avatar n tn Given your weight, diet and history you may be adult onset type 1 (research LADA) rather than type 2. Treatment for this is insulin rather than oral meds, usually. Your fasting no. are reasonable now, but your after eating is still too high. Yes, exercise and low carb eating are very helpful in controlling blood sugars and minimising med requirements. Hope this helps.
Avatar f tn Hello, given your age and your weight, have you been tested for type 1 diabetes? Testing for this involves testing c-peptide, insulin levels, and for antibodies. Please ask your doctor about this, particularly if the medications you have been given seem not to be working very well. Diabetes is surely a shock diagnoses. But it can be manageable. I suggest you look into low carb / ketogenic diet. It can be very helpful.

Avatar n tn Weight gain and type 1 diabetes is a very serious problem. I would like to suggest that if it is at all possible to bring in a type 1 diabetes nutritional specialist that may help out with information that can help with weight loss. There is another website that I would recommend dealing with this subject. It is www.childrenwithdiabetes.com/dteam/indexweight_2002.htm. This is a well known and very much respected site.

Avatar n tn 60 years old, male. Geno type 1. Pegasus was mentioned. I haven't asked further as I wanted to review the treatments. Peg-Inton with Rebatol was mentioned as possibly more effective.. but I'm not really sure what exact treatment the Dr. talked about. 48 weeks was suggested. A 30% chance was suggested. I'm talking this over with my family doctor first, but fully expect to jump in. I have only one symptom, which is really mild.
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.
Avatar n tn It's gonna be like that untill someone extraordinary finds a way to completely fix type 2. Type 1 will never be fixed, but one day we may understand why it happens and will be preventable. For now it's either drastically lowering the consumption of carbs, or the drugs. There's no inbetween.
8526246 tn?1405605476 I have type 2 diabetes my whole pregnancy and my baby will be almost 9lbs if I make it to 39 weeks. I'm having a c-section but it's because of a previous c-section and a hernia operation I had, nothing to do with me having diabetes. If you have GD it will, no matter what, cause your baby to be bigger cause the extra insulin you create leaks through the placenta which causes baby's heart to thicken, which causes them to grow faster. Their body not their organs.

I know how hard it is at this point especcially your son as we ar about the same age and same age at diagnosed. I'm on 5 injections a day most likley this will happen to your son .there are many things with diabetes like hypos low blood sugars and hyper high blood sugars .
1462810 tn?1327364049 I'm really new to this, but I think it's the medicine of the future. It was the medicine of the past before pharmaceutical companies started getting patents and got the M.D.s in their pockets (it really got its boost from penicillin, when they figured out ways to make synthetic penicillins they could patent). There's a reason why people who eat highly spiced foods have good teeth and don't get sick as often - it's in the spices.
Avatar m tn Hello, Minoxidil is one medicine which is routinely prescribed for hair loss. From your symptoms I would like to rule out androgenic alopecia as well. It is a common form of hair loss and typically occurs in M shaped pattern. Men who have this type of hair loss usually have inherited the trait. Other causes may be use of some drugs, infections and underlying disease, such as lupus or diabetes.
Avatar f tn Assuming he plays it straight, I don't see why the high glucose levels would keep treatment from starting. But, if he doesn't take the diabetes stuff reliably he might not have the discipline to take the interferon/ribavirin regularly which is an absolute MUST. Hubby is in a pickle. Sorry you have to be a spectator to it all.
Avatar f tn I would definatly reccomend swimming, accupunture, and Chinese eastern medicine. Eastern/Chinese medicine is completley different then western medicine and has helped a lot! Hope this helps. I wish you health and happiness in 2010!
Avatar n tn The standard way to determine whether a treatment is effective is to carefully record the nature of the patient's disease before treatment and to determine the patient's condition indefinitely. Clark's reports contain little information about the patient's history and no indication that Clark performed any physical examinations. The only follow-up reports are for a few patients who returned for further treatment -- usually a few weeks later.
427279 tn?1210923421 The main use for metformin is in the treatment of diabetes mellitus type 2, especially when this accompanies obesity and insulin resistance. Metformin is the only anti-diabetic drug that has been proven to reduce the cardiovascular complications of diabetes, as shown in a large study of overweight patients with diabetes.[10] Unlike the other most-commonly prescribed class of oral diabetes drugs, the sulfonylureas, metformin (taken alone) does not induce hypoglycemia.
Avatar m tn I'm staring treatment Tuesday. I'm not sure what medicine Im sure it will be interferion and something else.
Avatar n tn ) Now I'm in a waiting game. Tx is over but still don't know if I'll SVR. I also don't know if my previous vigorous health will ever return in large part because of the treatment drugs. In any case, there will be no regrets, because at this point I really didn't have any choice but to give it a shot. For those with little or no liver damage who do have a choice, I say think long and hard before trying to slay the dragon. Sometimes it slays back.

Avatar m tn Genotyping and biopsy can be ordered if I request but the result would not alter the course of treatment. Genotyping can identify 5 types of something but medicine today does not have a common approach. Usually one doctor's advice is different that of another's. 2. I am not sure about my e Antigen / Antibody status but my doctor said my medication requires heavy dosage, 1mg per day. 3.
1609054 tn?1298093528 I can barely make the mortgage, electric, phone, and a loan, as well as diabetes medicine. that is 50.00 a month please help Me. I am scared and want to take this medicine. I have had this for a while, Dr said it would cost approx 12,000.00 for a year treatment. possibly more than that now. I do not know what to do.
Avatar n tn NCgirl, I'm also not a physician, but I have read that it is not uncommon for hypoglycemia to be a pre-cursor to Type 1 diabtees. It is not always the case, but it is not uncommon. Work with your doctor -- preferably an endocrinologist. As you gain better control of your blood sugars, many of your unpleasant symptoms will likely improve or go away completely. Take good care of you!
Avatar n tn Count me as one of those that got type 2 diabetes. Byt not sure if the cirrhosis helped it. Did it effect you?

Avatar f tn For me, I consider having DM type 1 as my second life. If I was not able to survive its tragic entrance, I may have deemed silence already. So, instead of complaining why I had diabetes, I faced it with strength, because I know have God with me whom is greater than my problem. I hope these 10 tips could help you manage DM. Feel free to add some more in your own jot down notes because who- knows there are still more helpful tips in dealing with it.

915369 tn?1355318410 It's like people who have type 1 diabetes can have normal healthy blood glucose levels with proper insulin, diet, and exercise, but they will always have type 1 diabetes. If the medicine goes away, then things go back to the way they were before. I believe it's called remission for people with bipolar if you get better and stay better on your meds.
