Type 2 diabetes care plan for school

Common Questions and Answers about Type 2 diabetes care plan for school


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.
Avatar n tn Another 10 to 12 million people suffer from Type 2 (adult onset) diabetes where the pancreas fails to produce enough insulin. Type 2 diabetes is a 'different' disease with symptoms and complications that are similar to Type 1 diabetes. Type 2 diabetics can sometimes control their disease with diet alone or with the help of oral medications.
Avatar n tn I assume you get regularly tested for thyroid to make sure that isn't the cause of your weight gain and you don't need an adjustment in thyroid meds. Insulin doesn't make people gain weight, though sometimes people lose weight when initially diagnosed with very high numbers and when their blood sugar gets under control they continue eating the same way and gain weight. Another cause of weight gain in Type 1's is insulin resistance.
Avatar n tn Hi Dalki, Yes, in time your doctor will likely know for sure which type of diabetes you have. In addition to Type 1 and Type 2, there seems to be a type 1.5 ... tho' there's some thought that 1.5s are just in the early stages of Type 1. We DMers (folks with diabetes mellitis) and our docs often call that a honeymoon phase. I hope you're feeling better now that your bloodsugar has begun to come down. Things may remain volatile for a while, so try to be patient with yourself.
Avatar n tn They will offer you support and help you with problems you are encountering in your child's school and help you to understand what Type I diabetes is all about. Remember you are your child's advocate, so do not back down when it comes to your child's school. As a parent of a child you are actually who the teachers and board of education are working for. My suggestion is to go to the superintendent of the schools and explain what has happened to your child.
Avatar n tn 1) Symlin or Victoza - both are appetite suppressants approved for use for Type 2 diabetics. My endocrinologist prescribed them to me when I found myself eating everything in the house as my blood sugars rose after a meal (thus making them higher, thus more carbs and higher blood sugars = pounds). Symlin didn't really do anything for me, but Victoza was amazing.
Avatar n tn My daughter has had diabetes for 25 years (type 1) and is having a battle with anxiety, depression and terrible mood swings. Is this normal?
Avatar n tn When I was working in the hospital in diabetes education in my town we did have a boy who was over-weight and was diagnosed with childhood onset type 2 diabetes and he had gained some weight because his body was producing so much insulin to compensate for his bigger body size that it caused him to gain weight. I would talk to my doctor as soon as possible. It is better to be safe than sorry in your situation.
Avatar n tn im a 17 year old diabetic. ive been a type 1 diabetes for a little over 2 years now. ive smoken pot a couple times before and one of those times it has put me in the er. It is known to lower your blood sugar and it is a challenge to not only check your blood sugar while your high but to get what you need to raise your blood sugar back to were it needs to be.
Avatar n tn In the orient and middle east, this cure for type II diabetes, has been known for hundreds of years. Our health care situation does not need a band-aid like socializing it. It needs a morality check. We need to learn the best from each culture. Doctors making a commission from the sales of the drugs they prescribe does not seem ethical. It makes sense that they would prescribe the most expensive and perhaps even give prescriptions when the are not necessary if they want to make more money.
Avatar n tn I smoke basically all the time (even in school) and i have type 1 diabetes. It's affected my motivation for school and my grades have fallen slightly but all in all its not changed my life. Ive been diabetic for 13 years (since i was 3) and i still went out and got absolutely steaming. For a while i was the one who was always sick, always a state and it was great. It didnt affect my diabetes. So then i discovered weed which i liked better, could control easier and had more fun with.
Avatar f tn 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.
15607012 tn?1442453350 2- just like diabetes, there's type 1 and type 2. The vast majority of ENDOs do not look into type. Very common! Ask for Free T3, Free T4 and Reverse T3 7. Deficiencies. Tissue magnesium-not blood magnesium! Glutathione, Potassium, Neurotransmitters, B12 Methylocobalamin, Methylfolate, Vit. D3 . IV cocktail or sublingual drop where possible 8. Comprehensive metabolic profile for organ integrity evaluation as well as fluids and electrolytes. 9.
Avatar f tn I go every 3 months for type 2 diabetes, high cholesterol, trig. my PCP is very thorough, but sometimes they think they're also specialist as you can see from what I mentioned above about his thought on the FT3. Is there any other test I should be having done? Is it possible if not hashi's, the antibodies will go down? one of my concerns is not treating the antibodies. Whe to start meds is a controversial subject. Some doctors want to wait until labs go out of range and/or symptoms appear.
Avatar f tn ekoller, thanks for your perspective. How do you manage your type 2? We have a forum for this and would love your input. Also, thanks for the perspective on diet. Have you followed the Zone Diet yourself? What does it entail and how easy is it to stick to?
Avatar f tn I was talking about all the talk about the virus returning to wild type and the resitance mutations disappearing in 2 years time. Tracy Swan from Treatment Action Group and Jules Levin from NATAP are experts on this subject and that is where I am getting most of my information regarding resistance and the fact that no one can say that it is totally gone unless the patient is put on drugs again. .
1049076 tn?1256013017 He was admitted to the hospital last week for observation and they did a lot of blood work on him. They followed him for type 1 diabetes and they did a check on growth hormone and redid the thyroid test. I'm not sure what all the values are but the endo called us saturday and said the free t4 was only 1 point above the low end of normal. He said he would like to follow him and maybe start him on growth hormone in about a year.
649848 tn?1534637300 I don’t know how this is going to work for me. I have no intention of just “letting myself go”. I plan to continue to eat well and exercise regularly. I plan to stay involved in the WL&D forum and will do whatever I can to help get others started on the long journey to weight loss and I will ALWAYS advocate losing weight in a healthy sensible manner. I will also always hope that others don’t have to go through what I’ve gone through to accomplish their goals.
1898092 tn?1323407022 once in the morning and once in the evening for 1 day. the week before I get a musky smell all day on my skin lasting for 2-3 days. I still get the vibrations or tingling on my skin, If I'm near a person who has allergies I send them in a coughing fit. Or their eyes water and throat get tight. My smell sends people into anaphylactic shot if they stay near me for a long period of time. When at work I have to go into a small room with others and they all cough the entire time.
Avatar n tn , anti-inflammatory diet that I'm doing at home, I haven't had the weakness or fatigue anymore for about 2 weeks now. I also have been taking a epsom salt bath every day....apparently good for detoxing/relaxing/de-stressing. I think if we really really take the upmost care (baby them) our bodies that we will heal!!!
Avatar n tn My 2 1/2 year old dd has been doing the same thing for a week now. only at night or in the morning. i took her in to the pediatrician on friday and they said it is "going around" (here anyways) they said it was viral. so there was no medicine. the first 4 days she has diarrea. she has been sipping on pedialite and it on the "b.r.a.t" diet. (bananas,rice,applesauce,toast) that is what my doc said to do. so far no vomiting today or tonight. good luck everybody!
649848 tn?1534637300 Everyone says “calories in/calories out = weight loss” – sorry, that doesn’t work for everyone. So all this time – past 2+ years, I’ve been trying to get back to my pre-thyroid 115 pounds and it just isn’t happening. One day while I was in Barnes and Nobles Bookstore, I ran across a book by Geneen Roth called “When You Eat at the Refrigerator, Pull Up a Chair”. The whole concept of the book is stop beating up on yourself, stop dieting, etc.
Avatar f tn Tests for thyroid ( MANY tests) come back normal HOWEVER I often loose the moons on my last 2 to 3 fingers, a naturopathic indicator of low thyroid function. I have been advised NOT to take OTC thyroid supplements due to the chance they can cause heart issues. I follow this advise but as I try to limit salt intake I add more kelp into our ( me and Hubbie's) diets. My lymph nodes come back smooth as glass and no issues. I rarely get a 'normal' illness, like flu.
220090 tn?1379170787 Harry I probably miss most of the deleted threads, not being an everyday poster anymore, but I ,like R Glass , think you should post a warning in a thread -- something that lets the participants know (1) that complaints have been made and (2) that a thread may get deleted. I don't think I would care for a moderator . I can understand the hesitation of a member to take on the roll and your hesitation to offer it to anyone we, in the forum, currently know.
Avatar f tn The first six months, I probably took 1 to 2 per day, but in the past six months it has averaged from 3 to 10 a day. I was taking this for a legitimate health issue, but I am so pissed at myself for letting this turn into abuse. And for the people who are lurking who aren't sure if the people on these boards are "like" them :-), I'm 41, married, have 3 kids, have two homes, and am a successful executive. So it is really true that this can happen to anybody.
Avatar m tn No power in my hands from CPPD joint disease. The Doc says take 6 mos off and TX again for 48 weeks. He believes the 48 weeks on my Geno-type 2 will do the trick. If I cannot trust Dr. Gitlin...........? I have untill April 30, 2007 to mull it over. Like all of us I have much to consider. I now Live alone. I did manage to stay employed for the 24 weeks of TX. THE QUESTION: At 48 weeks will the SX get progressivly worse or stay as they were when I ended my 24 weeks?
Avatar f tn After that, I had allergy problems and numerous infections. It seemed like I was in the Urgent Care almost every other week and all they could do for me is prescribe antibiotics (boy do I know better now !). My first initial symptoms that I can remember were allergies, fatigue, muscle aches, feeling like cement blocks were attached to my legs, short term memory problems and then later on...
Avatar n tn I'm typing thru my tears!!! This is my 1st time on any type of forum and I've been looking for some gleam of hope good part of the day. I goofed in my question I took the test 11 days after transfer (TODAY!) I see the Dr. THIS Monday the 14th for actual test. I wish you lot's of luck as well... try not to get stressed...
784382 tn?1376934640 Generally speaking, these meds take about 4-6 weeks to really start noticing improvements. Many people report a subtle change for the better after about 2-3 weeks, but the dramatic changes take a little longer. For some, it may take even a bit longer than 6 weeks. That's especially true if your doc is going to gradually increase your dose (ie 25 mg for a few weeks, then up to 50)...which may be necessary. Some people require a higher dose and some do great on the low dose, it just depends.
