Common Questions and Answers about Type 2 diabetes history of

diabetes

Avatar m tn As your mother was diagnosed at one year of age with type 2 diabetes? Type 1 diabetes (juvenile diabetes), which is an autoimmune disease, sounds more likely. Are you sure the diagnosis is correct? Most children who have type 2 diabetes have a family history of diabetes, are overweight, not very physically active and it usually develops around puberty. Tablets are not suitable for type 1 diabetics. Insulin injections are given daily or several times a day depending on the type of insulin used.
Avatar f tn I went to diabetes center for diet counseling, I walk and ride my bicycle 6 times a week, weather permitting and still may have to get pills to control this blood sugar problem. The diet modifications have not helped. I have no family history of diabetes. MCV is also out of range. I have been considered free of the Hep C virus for 2.5 years now. Had stage 3 plus liver damage with type 3 then was told it was type 1. Who knows? Any comments? Thanks.
Avatar m tn i have high blood pressure too, but take TRITACE 5 MG 2 times make my blood pressure normal. i dont have any diabetes history . my father just had high bp.
Avatar n tn HI most of my family has diabetes,some take pills,some insulin [type 1 and 2] my question is.it'spossible to have pancreas transplant?
Avatar n tn Signs of type 1 and type 2 diabetes are very similar. Feeling shaky, having nausea, feeling weakness and fatigue are one of several diabetes symptoms. Having a family history of diabetes also puts you at higher risk than others. You're not going to get full answers to your concerns on the inet as we cannot diagnose you without seeing you.
Avatar f tn Normal levels 70-99 mg/dl Prediabetes 100-125 mg/dl Above 126 mg/dl indicate diabetes [hyperglycemia aka Type 2 diabetes] If your fasting levels returns below 70 mg/dl this indicates hypoglycemia [aka Type 1 diabetes]. 2.) OGTT [Oral Glucose Tolerance Test] - You drink a sugary liquid then tested in 1 hour intervals. This test is given to see how well your body sheds excess glucose after 1, 2 and 3 hours. 3.) RGT [Random Glucose Test] - Tested at any given time.
Avatar n tn So the levels of sugar is always dependent on the type of diet you follow to keep your sugar under control.I will send you a message giving you specific details about diet restriction and control blood sugar.
Avatar n tn There are no incidences of Type 1 Diabetes in my family, although there is Type 2. In my husbands family, his Uncle has Type 1. My question is should I be worried? For those of you with Type 1 or children that have Type 1, did you have or feed cereal to your infant under 4 months of age? Was there a family history or no family history? This has me worried sick, any help would be appreciated. Thanks!!
Avatar m tn With a family history of diabetes you have a higher chance of getting the diabetes gene passed to you than others. Glucose [blood sugar] plateaus in your bloodstream 2-3 hours after a meal so as far as the fruits, yes, fruits can raise glucose [blood sugar] levels. For myself and a few others, eating fruits is the same as eating table sugar, extremely harmful and dangerous. This could be you too.
Avatar f tn weights approx 160. Type 2 diabetes and has never had a weight problem. No sugar - lots of protein and fresh veggies. Limits carbs and fats. He's on Glipizide/Metformin 5/500 - 2 am - 2 pm. No amount of diet or exercise will control it. Pancreas is just worn out.
Avatar n tn I’m descended from at least three generations of people who developed Type 2 diabetes early (in their thirties and forties) and died of it early (in their forties and fifties). My entire adult life (I am now 40) I’ve worked really hard to prevent it developing – I’m a fitness fanatic, with a healthy weight and an excellent diet. Despite all this, my annual check-ups have now indicated that I have “prediabetes” or “impaired glucose tolerance”.
1644823 tn?1330059575 Gastric bypass surgery is great for curing type 2 diabetes. It works for up to 80 percent of patients. Now scientists are beginning to figure out why. And weight loss may be the least of it. It turns out that bypass surgery dramatically reduces the amino acids circulating in the blood – in particular, a type called branched-chain amino acids, which make up 40 percent of these nutrients in our diet. That's from a study published today in Science Translational Medicine.
Avatar n tn The pain could also be from ulcer disease(which may not be related at all to diabetes). Individuals with Type 1 diabetes can have some tendency towards allergic reactions, but environmental allergies are also quite common overall. I think your friend should see a Gastroenterologist about her stomach pains and vomiting, and fairly quickly if she can. An Allergist is probably the best person to see about her allergy concerns. Take care.
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 I am 57 year old female with strong family history of diabetes, heart attack, stroke and cancer. I am taking insulin 2 x daily and have recently have started have tingling/numbness sensations in my lower legs and feet and my arms. Could this is from the type 2 diabetes I have?
Avatar n tn DKA is less common in Type 2's than Type 1's but not unheard of. If he begins to vomit and experience flu-like symptoms he needs to go to the ER right away. At 10 years it is possible that he is now a type 2 that no longer produces enough insulin and we need insulin to live.That might be a good thing because it would bring him to his senses. Best of luck to you, you are indeed in a rough situation and it's sad because it is so unnecesary!
Avatar f tn I am 45, with type 2 and have had pneumonia 3 times in left lung -- different spots --within last year. Is this a common issue as a diabetic? (Also I am diagnosed with von willibrands and factor 8 blood issues.) It seems the diabetes and pneumonia are keeping me in a maze of various specialists and thus delaying some surgery to resolve some other issues. Suggestions on how to get one doctor to find time to look over all my conditions?
1341894 tn?1276129380 First of all, Welcome Home I was boots on the ground in Vietnam from March of 67 to October of 68.. I'm 100% positive I was exposed to Agent Orange. I got out of the service in August of 69. I was diagnosed with "Type 2" diabetes in October of 89. After a few years of oral medications and diet changes (I was not over weight or anything close to it) I was diagnosed as a "Type 1".
Avatar n tn I believe at your age you would develop Type 1 Diabetes and not Type 2 if you developed anything at all. I am not a doctor but I have learned a few things and Type 1 Diabetes is when the antibodies attack the pancreas just like it does with Hashimoto the antibodies attack the thyroid. So you should always be screened closely and it's not just Diabetes many other autoimmune diseases.
Avatar n tn Type 2 diabetes is most often diagnosed in people who are overweight, do not exercise and have a history of neglecting the needs of their bodies. Therefore Type 2 diabetics still produce insulin but their bodies do not use the insulin sufficiently or I could say properly. Anyway, why don't you try talking to your parents, maybe there was some miscommunication.
Avatar n tn This is a real burden for me, i fell i am trowing away 5 + 2 years of college away. So Yes diabetes is affecting immensely my short term memory. sad very sad.. hanging in there..
Avatar f tn Hey, Im 16 yo boy , full asian with diabetes type 2 history from all of the 4 grandparents. My mum is in a prediabetes stage so she recieved a blood sugar measure device so I decided to try it and got a bit worried when I saw the results which were 100-107 ( tested in 4 different days around a month ago ) I have fast metabolism, I weight 70 Kilos for 186 cm but I eat A LOT of candy which I have tried to reduce the amount I eat.
Avatar n tn I have a family history of Type 2 diabetes (my dad has it and 3 of my grandparents have it) so me getting would be no suprrise. I'm just surprised at the timing since I'm only 17. Then again, my eating habits have always been downright fate-tempting as I have a fast metabolism. In spite of it however I've gained a few kilograms of weight in the last few months. I'm getting a fasting blood test next week and want to know what my chances are of having Type 2.
Avatar f tn Hi, I am so sorry I missed your question, it did not come up in que when you write the most recent question. Type 2 diabetes can develop into a type of Type 1 later on IF the pancreas is not able to keep producing enough insulin. This is not definite and only happens to certain individuals. Complications related to diabetes are mainly from high glucoses and not the medications taken. All medications can have side effects ofcourse, herbals, teas etc included.
Avatar f tn As to being worried about a gene and passing it to a child you are ahead of the game since you know there is a family history of type 2 diabetes you can start your kids out with eating healthy balanced diet and making sure they don't become over weight inactive kids. Type 1 is a different story and thats not your concern your concern is on type 2 . hope that helps .
Avatar n tn I know I am insulin dependent because I cannot take my pump off except for the rare few minutes or so without my sugar sky rocketing. Now would u still call this Type 2 Diabetes or Type 1? Hearing the words Juvenile Diabetes associated with Type 1 throws me off obviously because I was not diagnosed as a juvenile. But also the words Insulin Dependent are associated with the Type 1. So I DO fit into that category.
Avatar n tn Barnard's team and colleagues at George Washington University, the University of Toronto and the University of North Carolina tested 99 people with type-2 diabetes, assigning them randomly to either a low-fat, low-sugar vegan diet or the standard American Diabetes Association diet.
Tbd Postprandial hyperglycemia is also one of the earliest abnormalities of glucose homeostasis associated with type 2 diabetes" https://care.diabetesjournals.org/content/24/4/775 So test 1-2 hours after a meal. As a pure guess, I'd think that once a month is sufficient - unless you change your diet or activity or other risk factors.
