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 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.
Avatar n tn Hi, I'm 40 and have type 2 diabetes. I had been able to get hard with just thinking about women but a few months ago it stopped. I can still masterbate but its soft - never a hard erection. I've tried all of the meds for it from my regulr doctor and none of them had any results. I'm overweight and my blood numbers I'm sure are not right. My questions is if I loose alot of weight (I'm 265 now) and lower my numbers, can it come back? Or is this permanent?
Avatar f tn Diabetes type 2 is reversible. You will be given two choices, either continue increasing dosage of medication to control your blood sugar, from a few pills a day to one day injecting yourself with insulin, or you can adopt a way of eating that will naturally keep your blood sugar low and steady and ween yourself off medications completely.

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 n tn Type 1? Are you sure it's not type 2?
Avatar f tn Type 2 diabetes is different from type 1 diabetes, which isn't reversible. Type 2 can generally be reversed by changing your diet and getting plenty of exercise. The reason is that type 2 is caused by the body not being able to absorb or use the insulin it creates.
Avatar f tn Or is it good to go 4 such therapies after having got the intake of the medicines stopped 4 diabetic. 3)Any way or new treatments to get the type 2 diabetic out of Blood or gene... What ways in the world?
Avatar n tn Our 34 year old son was just diagnosed with Bipolar type 2. During hospitalization he was put on Praxil (sp) and Zyprexa, with additional anxiety medication as needed. Although he never experienced the severe manic episodes typical of Bipolar, he did get extremely depressed and became very paranoid. His thinking patterns lacked logic and were a bit removed from reality.
798555 tn?1292791151 Prediabetes is usually seen as a precursor to type 2 type diabetes, which is not the autoimmune type. Type 2 diabetes, was known as adult onset type, has a strong genetic component and is often associated with insulin resistance. This forces the pancreas to work harder and eventually it can't produce enough insulin. Type 1 is autoimmune type. This happens when the insulin producing cells of the pancreas are attacked by antibodies which destroy them.
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 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.

541196 tn?1293556536 Hi Thanks for the detailed post. Your symptoms could be due to Lisnopril which causes flu like symptoms. If you change your blood pressure medication maybe things will sort out. I don’t think the drugs are causing any interactions. Please discuss this with your doctor. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
Avatar m tn Hey Jim! It actually advisable for type 2's to go low, low carb. I avoid medication by living a Paleo dietary lifestyle. I did so because my blood glucose had crept into T2 territory after years of dancing with the devil, "high fructose corn syrup". That and the near constant M&M drip line that sat on my office desk all day. The first couple of weeks are literal pain. There is definitely a carb withdrawal period.
Avatar n tn She will probably need a glucose meter and a new diet and possibly medication. Diabetes, untreated, can cause major damage to the body. She doesn't need this if it can be avoided, especially on top of her other conditions. Best of luck.
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 You'll just have to watch your carb and sugar intake. You will have a higher chance of getting type 2 diabetes in later life, but you can control that a little by eating right and maintaining a good weight. It really isn't that bad, my daughter was born 6lb 13oz and is perfectly healthy. Other than GD, I had a very good pregnancy. It will all work out ok. Good luck to you.
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.
