Avatar m tn i was diagnosed Diabetes type 2 in december 2010..I want to know that if someone is diabetic,how much he will live ???
Avatar f tn I just realized that I haven't seen my diabetes specialist in about three years. On my last visit she "discharged" me to the care of my internist. I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes about 5 years ago, at age 62. My glucose levels are stable at around 110, hB!ac 5.9. I've recently lost 25 kg, do some mild exercise and feel good. I'm taking metformin twice a day (750 mg).
Avatar n tn Potential complications from both diseasees are the same, so the research into finding cures for TYpe 1 and its complications also benefits folks with Type 2. The American Diabetes Assocation has lots of information specific to Type 2. This website explains a bit about the genetics component: http://www.diabetes.org/genetics.jsp Regardless of the genetic pre-disposition to diabetes, one of the most effective ways to slow or prevent its onset is to be diligent about lifestyle choices.
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.
Tbd Besides being overweight which is the most common reason, there's a lot of other reasons that may cause diabetes type 2. Another thing is age, the older you get, the chance are bigger you can get diabetes. I know it's already written, but I'll write it again, if you want to prevent it you should, of course, pay attention to nutrition and your eating habits in general. You can read more in the article below. https://www.hsph.harvard.
Avatar n tn Both type 1 diabetes and type 2 diabetes are multifactorial disorders, which means that they involve a combination of genetic, lifestyle and environmental factors. It seems counterintuitive, but type 2 diabetes has a larger hereditary component than type 1 diabetes, even though diet and lifestyle contribute greatly to the development of type 2 diabetes.
Avatar m tn What type of diabetes does your fiance have? If it is type 2, I believe the risk is even lower. Most important now is to manage the diabetes very well with medications and lifestyle so that you can have a long and very satisfying life together.
Business man2 Let us not forget Type 2 diabetes is associated with obesity, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, lack of daily 30-60 exercise, and above all poor food choices. In its early stage it is possible to reverse diabetes. This does not mean you can ignore lifestyle changes by going back to the bad habits which created your diabetes, it means you must adhere to a diabetic prevention lifestyle or it will return.
Avatar n tn Changing lifestyle habits can go a long way in controlling type 2 diabetes. India leads the world in diabetes. This is mainly due to poor diet/nutrition. Things he must do: Restrict & avoid refined sugars, high carbohydrate foods, practice, avoid dairy products like milk and yogurt, avoid food made with white flour [breads, crackers, etc].
5536886 tn?1455830946 Did you know that there is a chance that you will develop type 2 diabetes later in life after having gestational diabetes? Do you have a game plan for how to help manage your health after pregnancy so you don't have to deal with a type 2 diagnosis later? What advice would you give to someone who is cleared for now, but wants to prevent complications in the future?
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.
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 Since I recently had my gaul bladder removed, and am a type 2 diabetic...what should be a good meal plan?
Avatar m tn Hi, the tendency towards diabetes (type 2) is not curable, but the expression of that diabetes can be managed / cured by lifestyle (weigh loss, low carb eating, exercise), as long as you consider that you will be 'cured' only as long as you follow that lifestyle. Further diabetes is not a simple disease and some people will develop it regardless of how good their diet and lifestyle is (not that one shouldn't continue with that lifestyle), and may need medications as well.
Avatar m tn If you are normal weight and eat healthy and are young you are more likely Type 1 which is an autoimmune disease and has little to do with lifestyle. However, more information is definitely needed. I don't really get why your doctor would give you a reading like 176 and not say anymore!
Avatar n tn Markie is also correct that we still do not know enough about how type 1 happens. Probably type 2 as well. We do know that obesity can diffently cause type 2, while you will find type 1's, upon diagnoses usually experience weight loss and is not associated with obesity in any way that I have ever heard of. There have been recent studies that have created a gray area between the two regarding age and developing diabetes.
Avatar m tn Hi, What were your sugars 5 years ago? You may have been prediabetic at that stage, and once prediabetic with no intervention, diabetes can progress fairly rapidly. Yes, certainly it is possible to go from no diabetes at year 0 to symptomatic diabetes 5 years later. Low carb diet, weight management, exercise, and medications would be combined for best management.
Avatar n tn I too control my type 2 bu diet only. When I first launched into this new lifestyle I was faced with all of this information to digest; A1C, BG's, when to test, liver dumps, glycemic index, etc, etc, etc. I decided to simplify it. I cut out all the "white stuff". I shunned anything white or anything made with white stuff; no flour, pasta, sugar, rice,potatoes, bread, etc. My weight plunged, and my blood glucose levels plunged.
973741 tn?1342346373 Conventional treatment for T2 diabetes was oral medications, low fat high carb diet. Weight loss and exercise were recommended. The weight normalization and exercise are still recommended. However, the latest approach is to take a much more aggressive approach to diet. NOT low fat, high carb any more, but instead low carb, moderate protein and enough fat for energy. This is the approach endorsed by Dr.
