Common Questions and Answers about Type 1 diabetes vs type 2


158939 tn?1274918797 That said, I have a type-1 daughter and a type-2 husband, and type-2 is rampant in his family, so I'm pretty familiar with both. You're right that it makes no sense for him to have Type 2. I have heard of a couple of non-overweight people getting type 2 when there's a strong genetic history, but they don't usually get it until well into middle age. In general, you don't see it in skinny people like your son.
Avatar n tn First of all Type 2 diabetes does run in the family. I had gestational diabetes in two of my pregnancies. Lately but not everysingle day however more often now I am continuously feeling nausiated, at times a headache or mild diziness with it. At times I go to the toilet feeling as if I am going to vomit (but I dont). I am absolutely not pregnant (I had a tubal ligation). there are times when I get shaky or irritable or feel a head rush without food. I am 5'4" inches tall.
Avatar n tn I am so sorry that your friend is having this emotional seesaw problem. I am hesitant to blame her mood swings entirely on diabetes, for many type 1 diabetics are even-tempered and happy people, but I DO want to tell you that many parents notice that their type 1 children are irritable or hyperactive or just "not themselves" when glucose levels are either high or low. So my first suggestion to you is to encourage her to try to even out the glucose levels.
Avatar n tn My biopsy was a grade 2 inflammation. . . grade 1-2 fibrosis on the Metavir scale. I had no health problems whatsoever other than the hep C virus. My fitness level was and is good. Even so, the tx was difficult and detoxing post tx has been slow. You sound like your mind is made up to 'jump in' to treatment. I would suggest anyone address all health issues prior to tx. Someone posted the stats for response/non-response for those with IR.
Avatar n tn i am just wondering if there are any type 1's out there that have cleared. 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.

Avatar n tn I am 36 year old mother of 3 sons, I have type 1 diabetes for 27 years I have read most of the post and can answer a lot of the questions because I have lived with it for over 27 years of my life. I am heathy by most means, I have been on an insulin pump for over 8 years. I have lost several family members due to type 1 diabetes over the years and at 36 I am very concerned. I lost my aunt whom was in her early 40's slowly, she was blind on dialisis and falling apart, it was a horrible death.
Avatar f tn I can't find any studies which describe that, but that was the information given to me when I participated in the TrialNet study. Not having a history of type 1 doesn't really mean anything, type 1 is being diagnosed more and more often in children that have no history in their families. It's unfortunate, but true. My suggestion would be to continue to keep in contact with your endo and family doctor, followups will be necessary to verify glucose scores and the status of the pre-diabetes.
Avatar n tn ref 1) 82% out of 147 study participants ref 2) 76% out of 140 study participants BTW: There doesn't seem to be any other comprehensive studies performed since these two were done. Can that be true?
Avatar f tn NEW YORK (Reuters Health) – Patients with type 2 diabetes who also have liver cirrhosis associated with hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection fare significantly better when they’re treated with metformin, results of a French study indicate.
Avatar f tn Some of these medications should be uptitrated by his cardiologist to allow for the maximum dose as he tolerates them (namely, Ramipril and Metoprolol). His Plavix should continue for either several months up to 1-2 years depending on the type of stent he received at the time of his percutaneous coronary intervention (bare metal stent vs. drug-eluting). As with most medications, daily compliance with all of these is imperative for maintaining healthy cardiovascular fitness.
Avatar m tn (1) Angioplasty with Drug coated stents (2) CABG I am getting mixed opinions here from the doctors . I would like to know which procedure is best for profile (53 years, diabetic, smoker and obese).
119874 tn?1189759429 Type 3a. one doc said stage 1, another said early stage 2 (same slides). VL 16.5 mill. Undetectable at 4 weeks (<10). 48 year old female, weight 112, in good health (or at least, I was before treatment). Please advice this desperate woman. Thanks.
Avatar n tn I have type 1 diabetes. I have been diabetic for over 10 years. I started controlling my blood sugar using Regular insulin About 3 years ago, my doctor moved me to humalog. Using humalog was not easy. I looked at the study that was done and it never reacted as expected when I used it. It was taking 2 hours to start working and in by the third hour my glucose level would drop 200 to 250. It was also hard for me to sense when my blood sugar is low. That was very frustrating.
432223 tn?1206552625 Hello, I am a 38 year old white female with Type 1 diabetes for 22 years. I have severe peripheral neuropathy in my hands in feet. I am treated with Neurontin, 800 mg. TID, Elavil, 100 mg. at bedtime for the pain which blunts the pain somewhat. I have also had tarsal tunnel release surgery on both legs with little success. In your experience prescribing medications for neuropathy pain management, have you found Lyrica to have better results than the meds I am currently on?
Avatar n tn None of us are doctors, but have many years of life experience as you with type 1 diabetes. I can't personally remember anyone on animal insulin these days in the U.S. and really can't recommend doing a poll on this here, but I do agree with the other comments that with tighter control of blood sugars, people can experience more lows. I do hope the answers and information that you have recieved here have helped in some way. You may also want to check out the JDRF website at www.jdrf.
306455 tn?1288865671 but i will tell you, the meds are helping me control MY anger in front of my kids, he would get me soo mad that i would scream and cry in front of my children, who are only 2 and 1 years old. it wasn't fair to them..yes if i leave that will help, which i have to do eventually..but the time isn't right. i need to get back to being well, the way i was before being verbally abused and treated like ****....it's turned me into a very bitter and angry woman...
1462810 tn?1327364049 I’ll show you where to get it for a little more than $2 a pound! I’ll also show you where to get flax seeds for about a $1 a pound, or where to buy oat bran for a little more than $2 a pound. "I’ll show you where to get real salt that’s been harvested from the ocean rather than concocted in a synthetic chemical factory (like common table salt). I’ll reveal where to purchase stevia extract powder – a natural herbal sweetener that replaces sugar – at the very best price you’ll find anywhere.
Avatar n tn We can, however, share our type 1 experiences based on our own life experiences in dealing with type 1 diabetes. My daughter is currently on the insulin pump and only goes on Lantus/Humalog when her pump is malfunctioning. Thankfully (for us), this hasn't happened in so long that I cannot remember what the formula is to calculate the lantus.
Avatar m tn I keep forgetting to mention that I have a friend my age (50s) who got 1 ReStor and 1 ReZoom a year ago and she CAN NOT READ with either eye, must use readers and bifocals, even to see things on the grocery store shelf.
Avatar n tn I did check out this website, and must warn that although herbal remedies may help type 2 folks who actually produce insulin, type 1 diabetes is not at all a problem with insulin resistance, but is instead an autoimmune disease whereby the pancreas cells have actually been destroyed by the body's own immune system. A type 1 diabetic normally has no insulin resistance problems at all, but just cannot produce insulin.
Avatar n tn I haven't heard of DM preventing anyone from being listed for transplant. A person on dialysis can't be listed listed but I haven't known of HbA1c excluding anyone. I did find this article which doesn't answer your question but addresses the issue. www3.interscience.wiley.com/cgi-bin/abstract/106597450/ABSTRACT?CRETRY=1&SRETRY=0 The influence of preexisting diabetes mellitus (DM) on outcome after orthotopic liver transplantation (OLT) has not been well defined.
Avatar f tn My husband has to take insulin and pills but i have no idea which one is it type 1 or type 2???
Avatar n tn Dear Doctors at CCF, These are the details of my father in India. The big dilemma that we have been facing is the surgery (by pass) vs angio plasty. The following are the diagnosis of the thallium stress test and angiography done 2 weeks ago. Ppatient is 62 yr old male , hypertensive & on medication for last 10 yrs. Used to feel fatigued & a vague tightness in the chest while walking for last 2 1/2 yrs. EKG never showed ischaemia. Stress TMT was normal .
146021 tn?1237208487 Types of Diabetes The three main types of diabetes are type 1, type 2, and gestational diabetes. Type 1 diabetes, formerly called juvenile diabetes, is usually first diagnosed in children, teenagers, or young adults. In this form of diabetes, the beta cells of the pancreas no longer make insulin because the body's immune system has attacked and destroyed them. Type 2 diabetes, formerly called adult-onset diabetes, is the most common form.
Avatar n tn Sleeping has become become a struggle with recent changes in career, diabetes type-2, varices, low platlets and put on blood pressue med for varices control and diabetes. I need rest but I wake up every couple of hours for 15 to 20 minutes.
Avatar n tn Just because you "said" it (or should I say, misspelled it:) doesn't make it true. Carbs are not my friend. A low carb, low calorie diet is very, very, very effective for me. The problem is I like to eat BIG portions. Too many calories makes for a chubby Sammy. If, and I say "If", HCG has a positive effect in regards to "reshaping" me then "curing" me as is suggessted, then GREAT.
Avatar n tn I wonder if I should take Valtrex, although I've heard that's it's not as good for hsv 1 as hsv 2. I'm not sure if this is true or not.
