diabetes

Avatar m tn I have recently diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, my fasting blood sugar was 175. I am sure that these are on the higher side of the scale. My doctor adviced me to go retest after 2 weeks of exercise and strict diet control. Hence i completely changed my diet, no sugar, substantial decrease of carbs, relying on vegetables and sprouts or protein contents with additon to the 5-6 KM of walking. After two weeks when i went on re test, it was 140 on fasting. I have not used any medicine.
Avatar f tn I am also familiar with the research on intense exercise and hyperglycemia, but that research doesn't really give direction as to how to deal with the problem... Thank you.

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 Hi Luisa24, Looking back I did have side effects of diabetes when I had PCOS but I just thought with my weight loss my body was changing to my new size , but when I was having my blood tests done before I was due to start IVF they found out I was diabetic but only diet controlled which soon moved up to type 2 and still I have off days when am over tired or do not eat enough like today as my son kept me up all last night as he wouldn’t settle, I might not have PCOS now but am stuck with

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 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....
Avatar f tn I can't remember name of surgery...gastro something or other haha...duh...sorry....... diet and exercise can reverse it for type 2. Don't try quackery. Do your research! Watch the carbs and walk! Good luck!
Avatar n tn Elderly (76)- my mother-in-law, recovered from breast cancer (mastectomy performed) in 1995; later diagnosed with Type 2 diabete (1997); then diagnosed with chronic Hep B (2000) - treated and is still on medication. Current condition: Fragile, underweight (5ft 3in, weighs under 90 lb). Eating very little, avoiding chicken altogether (myth about its toxicity), but eating congee (porridge made with white rice)every morning. No exercise at all whatsover.
Avatar n tn If you get consistently high blood glucose even-though you do your diet, you should immediately start with drugs specially if you don't have time for exercise. Uncontrolled diabetes may cause stroke, heart attack, amputation, blindness, decreased life expectancy, kidney failure, etc. All of this I can be sure that most people will experience themselves if they dont control their blood glucose. You will be fine now but you wont in the future.
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 know of other type 1 diabetics who do strenuous exercise using the pump. These folks simply turn off their pumps while exercising to avoid lows. If using shots, you can't do that, but you may need to lower your pre-workout insulin levels some. My twin's doctor recommends sports drink such as Gatorade for active diabetics because it replenishes more than just carbs and it is absorbed into the body quicker than juice alone, so you might think about switching from juice to sports drink.
Avatar n tn I wonder how many of you who were diagnosed before the age of 1 have been checked for Neonatal Diabetes? My son was diagnosed at the age of 4 months with Type 1 diabetes but we later found out he had Neonatal Diabetes caused by a genetic mutation of the KCNJ11 gene.
233488 tn?1310696703 Dukey, why don’t you switch from diabetes to eye research? I’m sure the eye community would welcome a dedicated scientist like you looking for a 'long term solution'.
Avatar f tn 51:03 In the United States, 1 in 3 people will have Type 2 diabetes by 2050 if current trends continue, according to a new report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The projections, released today, are alarming to U.S. health officials, who say the numbers highlight the need for interventions to keep the number of new cases from climbing. Currently, 1 in 10 Americans has Type 2 diabetes.
Avatar n tn I want to add that type 1 and type 2 diabetics are encouraged to keep even lower cholesterol numbers than the rest of the population. It is known that oats are great for lowering cholesterol -- oatmeal for breakfast or oat muffins are wonderful and I personally have noticed a dramatic drop in cholesterol numbers after adding oats to my diet. If oatmeal is not your thing, many cereals are made with oat flour or grains, including Cheerios in a number of flavors.
Avatar n tn I'm also not a physician, but I have done some reading on gestational diabetes. I udnerstand that docs (and good moms & dads) seek to keep BG at low levels to minimize risks of complications and miscarriages. Are you being followed by a specialist, BTW? Diabetes, even gestational diabetes, is best handled by an physician who knows every little detail and keeps current in diabetes research.
Avatar m tn According to my doctor, both, pre-diabetes and type II diabetes are reversed if you can maintain normal blood glucose levels, via diet and exercise, without medication.
1469903 tn?1286650297 Of all the patients with diabetes, only approximately 10% of the patients have type 1 diabetes and the remaining 90% have type 2 diabetes. Type 2 diabetes was also referred to as non-insulin dependent diabetes mellitus (NIDDM), or adult onset diabetes mellitus (AODM). In type 2 diabetes, patients can still produce insulin, but do so relatively inadequately for their body's needs, particularly in the face of insulin resistance as discussed above.
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.
Avatar n tn old boy who was diagnosed with Type I diabetes at the age of 3. Also, my sister was diagnosed (2 yrs. prior to my son) at the age of 24. She is now 32. My sis takes lantus and humalog, just like your daughter does. I do not have diabetes, however, I do understand that the weight issue is frustrating and sometimes even depressing. My sister has had a very similar situation to your daughter's. It wasn't until recently that she lost some weight.
Avatar m tn When I saw my liver specialist after treatment, he warned me that the treatment drugs could cause a worsening of the metabolic syndrome, including type 2 diabetes. I've posted previous studies on this before, but here is the 2007 EASL abstract. Folks, SOC treatment can save lives, but it isn't without a cost and therefore one should really ask the question -- of self and doctors -- do I really need to treat now?
86664 tn?1291561395 I too was diagnosed with Type II diabetes a few years after finishing treatment. I just completed my 2nd go round, and while on treatment, my sugar was absolutely normal. Doc took me of of the amaryl I was on. So I am on my 2nd week off treatment, and we will see what happens. I lost over 100 lbs while on treatment and plan to keep that off.. Thats what I gained after treatment last time. I am pretty much normal of where I should be.

Avatar f tn The most common types of diabetes are Type 1 and Type 2. Which type are you? Basically, Type 1 diabetes are hereditary, genetically transmitted from parents to offspring. Normal treatment would be a daily doze of insulin. Type 2 on the other hand, is more on lifestyle (sedentary - without regular exercise), eating habit or being overweight, etc. Normal treatment would be regular exercise, well balance diet with some minor medication as prescribe by a doctor.
