Common Questions and Answers about Type 2 diabetes untreated symptoms


Avatar f tn Any information you can provide as to the type of complications that can occur when diabetes is left untreated for a period of time would be most appreciated. As we want to educate and prepare ourselves as to what the future holds for my Dad. Thank you very much for your attention and response.
Avatar m tn I just looked up the diabetes symptoms.. I appear to show all, I dont know what to tell my parents, and is it possible to get rid of it, i exercise regularly and eat healthy i just want to know can I grow out of it?Or can I do anything to get rid of it?
1300526 tn?1275775221 Since you had health issues before becoming a diabetic, have you ever considered that you might have had chronic pancreatitis for all those years. This can cause the symptoms of diabetes, but it is not quite like classical diabetes in that infection causes the problem not "metabolic syndrome", the underlying problem that eventually becomes diabetes.
Avatar n tn What are the symptoms of Type 1 Diabetes? I have a child who is extremely tired and thirsty all the time. Should I have him checked for diabetes?
Avatar f tn Exactly like everyone else does, women that are pregnant should remember to protect their skin before investing a plentiful timeframe into the sun. A female's skin is more painful and sensitive when they're pregnant as well as can quickly be sunburned, which often, could eventually cause more severe problems like skin cancer.

2186126 tn?1384961026 Just found this site -- thank you all, it's very helpful. By sheer coincidence, when DivaMarie posted on Nov. 9th, two posts above, that was the day I decided to free my 15yo, 70lb Lab/Chow mix Frida from further pain. After 11 years of practically zero health issues, she had a few Cushing's-type symptoms develop at age 11 -- PU/PD (excessive drinking/peeing), her gorgeous thick tail turned into more or less a rattail, potbelly, a few other miscellaneous symptoms.
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 Hi, it is normal not to want to take medicines. However your fasting level at 240 and random at 300 are very high. Normal levels for people without diabetes are < 95 fasting and < 120 2 hours after eating. Your very high levels are putting your body under a lot of stress. You are dramatically increasing your risk for vascular and heart disease. You also increase your risk of going blind and kidney failure. And these are just some of the worst symptoms.
Avatar n tn I was dianosed as insulin resistant, which is a step towards type-2 diabetes. Had I just kept testing my fasting blood glucose, or had this test been run just testing blood sugar and not insulin, I would not have been diagnosed. Low-carb diet with exercise is best for this & type 2 diabetes. When i was diagnosed I was having all the above symptoms. After my diagnosis, I went low-carb (no more than 60grams a day) and exercised 4-5 times a week.
Avatar n tn I was tested for diabetes and although my results were low they weren't low enough to say I had Diabetes - during an 8 hour test I had a hypoglycemic attack, however further monitoring of my blood sugar shows normal even when my symptoms are severe.
Avatar f tn I also have type 2 diabetes but one way or anyother you really should go see a dr
Avatar n tn In my experience, treatment seems to unmask diabetes and thyroid disease which may have been just below detectable before treatment. GI.PA *Untreated or unknown diabetes can escalate on treatment causing life treatening diabetes issues (diabetic coma..ect). Fortunately the most common metabolic panel ordered on the liver also contains a glucose..an ok screen for diabetes.
Avatar n tn My wife had many of the same symptoms you have mentioned. numbness, tingling, arms sore when touched, achyness, and it seemed to intensify when her period started. She went to gyn, and he diagnosed her with "perimenopause. she began hormone treatment and has lost almost all trace of the symptoms that 2 nerologists, 2 back specialists, a gen. pract., a bone scan, a mri of the brain and back, and also a bone density scan. All had failed to produce anything other than bills to our med.
Avatar n tn I'm not a physician, but the symptoms you describe are classic symptoms of Type 1 diabetes. It is also not uncommon that hypoglycemia preceeds diabetes. Please give a call to your physician right away. If you do have diabetes, you can avoid allowing things to get worse, and you can avoid a hospital stay if you act quickly now. Drink plenty of water to flush your system of ketones and do your best to avoid concentrated sweets (like you had to do for hypoglycemia).
Avatar f tn I had only one doctor that used the tests only as a guideline; he treated the symptoms and I did wonderfully; sadly, he passed away 2 years after I began to see him. I wish, in the case of your younger son, the doctor would pay less attention to his tests, and more to his symptoms. Is the doctor an endocrinologist?
Avatar m tn Not changing your lifestyle habits, not eating proper nutrition, not maintaining normal weight and not exercising daily is self destructive. Do yourself a favor and Google search type 2 diabetes and educate yourself about this disease. This will better prepare you for your next doctor's consultation.
Avatar n tn His angiography was done today and it was found that 2 of his arteries LAD are blocked (90%). He has type 2 diabetes and is hyper tensive. He is asked to have a bypass and valve replacement. What are the risk factors involved and is there anything to worry about?? Can someone please give views?
Avatar f tn If I hadn't had hcv, I wouldn't have been making all that interferon in my body and all would have been well. And I too, like Kittyface, am a person of normal weight and diet with type 2 diabetes. So yes, it's not just the liver that's affected by hcv.
4879855 tn?1360443797 Yeah, wouldn't want to do that taste test! Apparently, observant doctors used to diagnose diabetes in men by noticing little sugar crystals on the shoes (from the guys not aiming so well). Obesity is actually a risk factor for type 2 diabetes, not a symptom. As you said, people with not enough insulin or who are insulin resistant can't properly transfer sugar in the blood to the cells where it is needed.
Avatar n tn And unlike you would assume I have never injected myself with it. I'm not sure what symptoms go with what problem I'm having. So what I'm asking is if the symptoms could be a sign that I have chronic hepatitis C and what would you do if your were in my situation? I am desperate to find some sort of direction to go and what I should do. thank-you for taking your time to read this and hopefully give me suggestions!
Avatar f tn however, your FT4 and many of your symptoms may indicate hypothyroidism. You also have some symptoms that indicate type I diabetes. Please post the reference range for the Free T4. The other thread from yesterday can be accessed via the following link: http://www.medhelp.org/posts/Thyroid-Disorders/Thyroid-tests/show/2616995 When you respond, it would be best to come back and respond on this thread vs starting a new thread each time you have a comment or question.
158241 tn?1237723123 * Liver Diseases Branch, National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases, National Institutes of Health, Bethesda, MD No challenge in clinical hepatology is as great today as the management of patients with chronic hepatitis C who have failed to respond to an adequate course of antiviral therapy. At present, the optimal regimen is a combination of peginterferon and ribavirin.
Avatar f tn My TSH is almost undetectable, but my FREEs are now in a good part of the normal range....about 1/2 or slightly higher for T4 and about 2/3 - 3/4 for T3 while monitoring for symptoms. I can't stress enough that this is HIGHLY individual. The level that you post for your FREE T4 is 17, exactly in the middle. Based on this, I would not have lowered the T4 had it been me.
Avatar n tn I have been experiencing the same symptoms for the past 2 years. It came on very suddenly at a time when I was exercising regularly every morning on the stairmaster and lifting weights every evening. Since that time I have forced myself to work through the weight lifting and have cut out the the stairmaster (which did cause a lot of sweating). I found that after a few days the flu like symptoms would diminish from the weight lifting.
12832842 tn?1448732401 A few years ago there was a collation of researcher facts, that off the top of my head was saying per year the average was 2+ new lesions on a DMD and 6+ untreated. Which comes back to what is progression, lesion numbers or an individuals clinical symptoms or both....... "Can you stay in RRMS your entire life if treated early??
Avatar n tn Hi I had the vaccine 13 days ago after which i had one night with bad flu symptoms then 2 days later I had pain going down both of my arms making my wrists very sore.i still have stiffness and pain inmy arms but now it is in my ankles and knees and my muscles feel like they are contracting.I have had some tingling in my face and legs but at the momement this has subsided.Haven't slept the past 2 nights mainly due to pain and everytime T wake up I feel worse.
Avatar n tn I am a twenty one year old mother and my son is 2 1/2 years old and he as been experiencing the same symptoms as everyone else children. He's vomiting uncontrollably and it scares me. The doctor said it was a virus and perscribed me the generic brand of Zofran. I personally do not think it is a virus because it has occured to long. Everytime I touch his throat he starts to gag. I just want to know what is going on with my little boy and I appreciate any feedback.
