5669694 tn?1372074010 When I start to feel hunger and do not eat straight away, it will start with feelings of nausea, shakes, and headaches. I am glucose intolerant. My husband starts to feel similar, and he is Type 2 diabetic. So we know that we have gone past the time when we should have eaten.

Avatar n tn I am a Type 1 diabetic, so I am not as familiar with Type 2 diabetes-which I think you are describing. I did look up on http://www.diabetes.org/about-diabetes.jsp, American Diabetes Association website, to make sure I had correct information. It was informative if you want to take a look. It had information about pre-diabetes, when blood glucose levels after fasting are between 100-125. It says diabetes is indicated when fasting blood sugars are 126 or higher.
Avatar n tn It can lead to type 2 diabetes, and many people do suffer from hypoglycemia before developing type 2 diabetes. Other people never develop type 2 diabetes at all, but remain hypoglycemic. Your best actions are to do what you can to prevent the lows while also doing what you can to prevent the onset of type 2 diabetes.
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 I graduated from high school, college, have been happily married for over 3 years and have 2 amazing children with no complications from my diabetes. While diabetes has been a huge part of my life, I have tried not to let it define who I am as a person. I sincerely hope that he realizes that he needs to take care of himself soon for his own health and your piece of mind. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask.

Avatar n tn frequent urination, excessive thirst and hunger, dramatic weight loss, irritability, weakness and fatigue, and nausea and vomiting. Some other symptoms of type 2 diabetes may include: recurring or hard-to-heal skin, gum, or bladder infections, blurred vision, tingling or numbness in hands or feet, and itchy skin.
Avatar f tn A1c - Measures your glucose levels over the past 3 months. The test result is presented in % [percentage]. Normally used to test for Hyperglycemia. 2. Thyroid TSH test - An abnormal thyroid will disrupt your glucose levels. 3. Since you show symptoms of acute Hypoglycemia, the C-Peptide test is recommended. It is used to monitor insulin production and determine the cause of hypoglycemia. 4. GAD antibody test [not to be confused with GAD test for anxiety].
709686 tn?1277435759 If it is Type 1 Diabetes, you are somehow born with a weak pancreas or abnormal hormone system which causes the lack of insulin production. But about 90% of the diabetes patients are of Type 2 Diabetes which is still remain a myth among the Smart Scientists. Type 2 Diabetes is a diet & lifestyle related illness. Most people put the blame on the Sugar and Carbohydrate for the elevated glucose level in the blood.
1469903 tn?1286650297 • high amounts of glucose in the urine, which leads to dehydration and causes increased thirst and water consumption; • weight loss despite an increase in appetite; • fatigue; • nausea; • vomiting; • bladder, skin, and vaginal infections; • blurred vision; and • lethargy What is diabetes? Diabetes mellitus is a group of metabolic diseases characterized by high blood sugar (glucose) levels, that result from defects in insulin secretion, or action, or both.
193177 tn?1218694001 Too much glucose will then remain in the blood, causing the symptoms of diabetes. There are several types of diabetes. This article focuses on type 2, which is usually accompanied by obesity and insulin resistance. Insulin resistance means that insulin produced by your pancreas cannot get inside fat and muscle cells to produce energy. Since the cells are not getting the insulin they need, the pancreas produces more and more. Over time, abnormally high levels of sugar build up in the blood.
Avatar f tn No , your symptoms don't seem like the classical diabetes symptoms of extreme thirst, frequent urination. Yes, with high blood sugar one does feel sleepy but that is quickly followed by the symptoms I describe above, at least for me. I have been diabetic for nearly 30 years now.
Avatar n tn I just turned 59 and suddenly developed all the symptoms of type 1 diabetes. My wife had been diagnosed with type 2 diabetes a few months earlier and because she had a glucometer I had tested my glucose to find it was normal. I am wondering how I can develop diabetes overnight without any previous symptoms. It seems strange that both of us get diabetets at about the same time but different types of diabetets. Any thoughts?
Avatar n tn I would encourage you to not rely on a GP for help, but to insist on being referred to an endocrinologist who specializes in type 1 diabetes. You shouldn't have to live this way. One more thing, have you noticed a monthly hormonal pattern to the high glucose levels? Some women do find that when certain hormones are high, glucose levels don't seem to respond to insulin as well. It is possible that some therapies to change your hormonal levels could help you if this is the cause.
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 The interferon kills the pancreus and causes diabetes. My husband went on interferon and developed Type 1 diabetes. The doctor did not recognize the symptoms as he became sicker and sicker. He ended up in the hospital with blood sugar over 600! He was in a coma for 10 days. Eight years later he is now a type 1 diabetic with hepatits C. Read the insert on your interferon packet. It clearly says it may cause Type 1 diabetes.
Avatar n tn My Son who just turned 2 1/2 and was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes in March now has a stuttering problem. I noticed he was stuttering slightly prior to his diagnosis. Well after about a month he is now straining to get his words out and is stuttering. This concerns me. Our insurance will only pay for speech therapy if there has been an injury and or congenital anomoly (birth defect).
Avatar f tn As a result of the study concerned, I believe in the UK doctors have been urged to switch patients from this combination to something else for the treatment of blood pressure. I have a strong family history of Type 2 diabetes and am 46 years old female. Recently due to some episodic spikes in my blood pressure I have been put on atenolol and my doctor would like me to add Micardis (thiazide diuretic and ARB) to this blocker.
Avatar n tn electrical type shocks, constant nausea (despite use of phenegran), dizziness, regurgitation, mid-chest constant burning of stomach, excessive appetite, weight gain of 60 lbs in 6 months, sinus pressure (my sinus x-rays are clear), muscle soreness/stiffness (especially in my shoulders), burning sensation in muscles, constant dull overall headache (this is feeling good to me), fatigue, flatulence, rectal bleeding, feeling "off".
Avatar m tn I just wanted to say that a lot of symptoms you describe can be from Lyme. I've just been diagnosed with lyme after 2 years of symptoms. All my tests kept coming back normal like you including MRI's. Finally a lyme test was done and was POS. Many people don't recall a tick bite and still have lyme. Many ticks are very very small and can go undecteted. Try to get the lyme test done. It should be ruled out anyways in cases where MS is in question.
1947749 tn?1324332989 I am as confused as ever. Her ped sent us home with an order to do a blood draw for a glucose test. Which we are going into the holiday weekend >.< She is thinking pre-diabetes with a possibility of hyperglycemia. Her A1C just came back still in range but I tested her ketones this morning and she has small amounts. Am I missing something here? She is still all over the place with her numbers. I am as confused as ever. Thanks for all of the responses.
Avatar m tn Even with any type of infection, the blood sugar levels will be difficult to control, but it is still Type 2 diabetes. At the moment, you have NOT been diagnosed as having diabetes and the sugar levels your last HbA1C showed were that classed as pre-diabetes. There is no point in speculation and worrying and stressing yourself out unduly. Like I mentioned previously, keep a written record of everything that you eat and drink and the exercise that you do and keep a note of how you feel.

Avatar f tn You have posted on the type 2 forum, hyperglycemia, not type 1 aka juvenile diabetes. Prepare yourself to ask your doctor questions by using Google and search on 'hyperglycemia testing' and/or 'type 1 diabetes testing'. Also, call the doctor's office and ask if you should fast 8-10 hours prior. To add to allymarbles, an endocrinologist is a doctor who specializes in diabetes care and treatment. Most PCP's know only basic care - here take this pill, call me later. Good luck.
Avatar n tn I'm not a medical professional, just the parent of a kid with diabetes. Type 1 and type 2 diabetes both cause nerve and blood vessel damage in fingers and toes when the body has hyperglycemia for long periods of time. Please consult your doctor about the symptoms you are seeing. There are treatments to relieve the symptoms you are having.

757527 tn?1237896663 Your fasting glucose says you're Type 2 Diabetic, hyperglycemia. Don't confuse your kidney symptoms with diabetes even though they can mimic hypoglycemia. The three key components in diabetes care are nutrition, fitness, and normal weight. Go here for a world of information http://www.diabetes.org/ Please call you doctor asap and ask for a diabetes home test kit, instructions, and oral medication to help bring down your glucose levels. And, yes, diabetes can affect the kidney's.
Avatar n tn Most women who develop gestational diabetes do not stay diabetic after pregnancy, for the hormones that are present during pregnancy create the insulin resistance that is the root of this diabetes, and those hormones are not as plentiful after the pregnancy is over. Gestational diabetes has much more in common with type 2 diabetes than with type 1 diabetes because both are rooted in insulin resistance. There is a good web page which explains gestational diabetes very well: http://www.
Avatar m tn Dry mouth Dry or itchy skin Tingling in feet or heels Erectile dysfunction Recurrent infections, external ear infections [swimmer's ear] Cardiac arrhythmia Stupor Take the time to Google search and educate yourself on type 2 diabetes treatments and types of complications when ignored.
