What Is Type 3c Diabetes?

A group of scientists is warning that doctors need to be more aware of a type of diabetes that has been newly studied in recent years, which they say is poorly understood by many doctors and commonly misdiagnosed. As a result, patients with this form of diabetes, called Type 3c, often aren’t getting the treatment they need. By way of review: Type 1 diabetes, which often shows up in childhood or early adulthood, is an autoimmune disease affecting the insulin-producing cells of the pancreas. Type 2 diabetes, which has generally been associated with middle-aged and older people, is caused by the body’s inability to use insulin properly. Type 3c, described in a new study in the journal Diabetes Care, stems from damage to a previously healthy pancreas, caused by such health issues as pancreatitis, a pancreatic tumor, cystic fibrosis or trauma. As a result, the pancreas no longer produces adequate amounts of insulin, digestive enzymes and other hormones. According to some earlier journal articles on Type 3c, most of the cases occur among people with chronic pancreatitis. Yet, according to the study by a group of British scientists, doctors routinely mistake Type 3c diabetes for Type Continue reading >>

    Type 3 Diabetes

    this is is taken from the above link.
    Diabetes mellitus 3 is also known as brain diabetes. This is because the brain requires insulin to form new memories. Receptors on the brain’s synapses help facilitate the communication that creates new memories. The insulin produced by the brain wards off amyloid beta-derived diffusible ligands (ADDLs)that destroy those receptors.
    In diabetes mellitus 3, the brain is either doesn’t produce enough insulin for new memory formation or is resistant to the insulin it produces. Without insulin, those insulin receptors die. Without those insulin receptors, the brain can’t form new memories.
    This inability to form new memories is what produces the type 3 diabetes symptoms, signs and difficulties that mimic those of Alzheimer’s and dementia. Sufferers experience the memory loss and confusion that is typical of both diseases. Because of the similarity of these diseases, doctors often have trouble diagnosing diabetes mellitus 3 unless they are specifically looking for it using Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) scanning technology.
