Common Questions and Answers about Type 2 diabetes mellitus and exercise


Avatar n tn I'm guessing that s/he is not a diabetes specialist and that's the type of physician who should be guiding your diabetes care. Specialists might be called endocrinologist or diabetologist. None of us here is a physician, but we're long-time diabetics or care-givers for diabetic children. You didn't mention if you've been diagnosed with Type 1 or Type 2, and the treatment options vary for these types. Your instincts are good, Candikane.
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.
Avatar f tn Diabetes Mellitus (DM) is a chronic disease of absolute or inadequate production of the pancreas, and/ or the body’s resistance to insulin. It is a long term and a lifetime illness that is projected to be the second debilitating disease, causing most of the world’s mortality and morbidity. DM itself does not necessarily cause life threatening scenarios but its complications do.
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 f tn There are no high quality data on the efficacy of the dietary treatment of type 2 diabetes, however the data available indicate that the adoption of exercise appears to improve glycated haemoglobin at six and twelve months in people with type 2 diabetes. There is an urgent need for well-designed studies which examine a range of interventions, at various points during follow-up, although there is a promising study currently underway.
Avatar m tn Hello, Polycythemia causes blood cells to grow abnormally in the bone marrow and can be primary or secondary. In primary polycythemia, intrinsic factors in red blood cell production cause an increase in red cell count. In secondary polycythemia, external factors result in polycythemia. Reducing risk factors for heart failure, such as, controlling high blood pressure and diabetes mellitus, can potentially reduce the risk of polycythemia.
Avatar f tn //www.webmd.com/diabetes/features/five-ways-to-control-type-2-diabetes#1. Cutting down on carbohydrates, eating a heathy diet are important as is getting to a good weight that is within healthy BMI. But do note that simply working on it and losing 'some' weight is better than nothing and you will impact your health in a positive way by doing this. As for hypertension/high blood pressure. Again, there are life style things to try.
Avatar n tn Does anyone have any links to share about studies in regards to diabetes and hep c. I asked by by diabetes docotor and my hep c doctor about a link between the two diseases and both said there wasn't one. Since I am not over weight and there is no diabetes in my family I am inclined to think there is a link. Also have read here more then once about those of us who crave sugar while on tx, a side effect I have been going through and giving into recently, not good for my diabetes.
86664 tn?1291561395 I'm hoping to cure diabetes when I SVR. What are your numbers before and after tx? Do you think HCV caused early diabetes?
15375805 tn?1441615985 type 1 and type 2. Type 2 is more prevalent globally and according to the World Health Organisation forms 90 percent of all diabetes cases. You are more likely to be diagnosed with erectile dysfunction if you have type 2 diabetes than if you have the type 1 version of the condition. Causes You may be left wondering why a condition caused by uncontrolled glucose levels can have such an impact on erection function.

Avatar m tn Both diabetes mellitus and diabetes insipidus fall into this realm but both are separate mechanisms. This forum deals mostly with type 2 diabetes, people who have high blood sugar levels [mellitus]. Diabetes insipidus is kidney related. For best answers, the forum to post on is Kidney Disease & Disorders.
137025 tn?1217768341 gov/dm/pubs/insulinresistance/ I tookk a continuing ed course on diabetes and learned enough to put me to sleep, as I wasn't as interested in it at the time! My grandmother was a type 2 diabetes (adult onset) but no one else in my family has developed it.
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 I'm also diagnosed type II diabetes, but no meds or symptoms. Diet and Exercise with some supplements has given me consistently good tests. For all these conditions, I still feel just fine every day. If I didn't know I had them, I wouldn't know I had them! Any comments appreciated.
479244 tn?1271567259 There are too many variables that can influence whether somebody will become a diabetic or not besides having Hep C. Like....genetics, obesity/diet, yo-yo dieting, amount of exercise, use of meds (like steroids) that can increase the risk of diabetes, smoking (which can cause insulin resistance), previous exposure to toxins (like agent orange), HIV co-infection, lypodystrophy (fat atrophy and re-distribution), having other infections, use of supplements that decrease insulin resistance....
Avatar f tn 50 years old female, diagnosed with type 2 Diabetes and later on hypertension since 2004, has been on Insulin since then. Initially, she had gestational diabetes during her first pregnancy, in 2004 which resolved after delivery. Then again she had gestational diabetes during her second pregnancy in 2006. Three miscarriages later, she was diagnosed with Diabetes Mellitus and started on Insulin.
Avatar m tn Viral Hepatitis Backgrounds and Aim Chronic hepatitis C patients have higher prevalence of insulin resistance and type 2 diabetes mellitus than healthy controls or chronic hepatitis B patients. The relationship between chronic hepatitis B and metabolic syndrome remains unclear. We investigated an association between chronic hepatitis B and metabolic syndrome.
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. .

Avatar m tn I have diabetes type 2 and have to take a pill a day for it. My glucose levels have all been stable for 4 years now and it hasn't affected my QOL at all up to this point. We all know that our QOL also deteriorates as we age. Its natural and one has to be careful not to blame every little ill, ache, or pain to HCV when the known symptoms of aging mimic many symptoms of HCV exactly.

Avatar f tn Glipizide and glyburide are both indicated for adjunctive therapy in the treatment of type 2 diabetes mellitus, where hyperglycemia cannot be controlled by diet and exercise alone. You could ask your doctor about these.
Avatar m tn 6 (10.5%) had normal liver, 3.5 % (2) had Type 1 or 2 and 86% (49) had Type III or IV. One of these had cirrhosis. IR was evaluated in 102 patients. It was correlated with moderate and no alcohol intake in 81.3% and 78.7% cases respectively (p<0.05). In patients with light alcohol intake 54.8% did not presented IR. CONCLUSIONS: Light-to-moderate alcohol consumption was not associated with the severity of NAFLD in obese patients.
Avatar n tn I also take the medication for type 2 diabetes. I also take glyburide for my diabetes. I would say that it is a 50/50 chance whether you would lose weight in the long run as the product wasn't designed as a weight loss product. (but I'm not a doctor so your dr. might be able to tell you what to expect).
Avatar m tn I've searched everywhere and can't find a link between the 2, since pre-diabetes is not a recognized disease and is a forerunner to type II diabetes which is not autoimmune.
427279 tn?1210923421 The main use for metformin is in the treatment of diabetes mellitus type 2, especially when this accompanies obesity and insulin resistance. Metformin is the only anti-diabetic drug that has been proven to reduce the cardiovascular complications of diabetes, as shown in a large study of overweight patients with diabetes.[10] Unlike the other most-commonly prescribed class of oral diabetes drugs, the sulfonylureas, metformin (taken alone) does not induce hypoglycemia.
Avatar f tn basically he just thought it was my age , 49, and contributed the symptoms to menopause . eventually my doctor sent me 4 blood test . his diagnosis diabetes mellitus type 2 . he put me on metformin and said all symptoms should subside . they have not . I still have the hunger pains keep me awake at night regardless of my diet during the day . my blood sugar runs around 106 give or take a few .
921323 tn?1268679412 Some say, why don’t we save the millions of dollars spent on drug research and instead invest them in education, legislation, and regulations that will help us eat better and exercise more? Put the money towards the health costs of the uninsured. Or, use it to fund research in diabetes, heart disease, or any of the other countless complications of obesity. But is it too early to admit defeat?
Avatar f tn Obesity is associated with significant morbidity, including hypertension, type 2 diabetes mellitus, hyperlipidemia and hyperuricemia. You should consult an endocrinologist for a proper assessment of your condition. Treatment plans should include medical management of the underlying disorder (if any), weight-loss programme, dietary and physical activity management, nutritional education, behavior modification and family involvement.
