Diabetes Type 1

Diabetes Type 1

Diabetes means your blood glucose, or blood sugar, levels are too high. With type 1 diabetes, your pancreas does not make insulin. Insulin is a hormone that helps glucose get into your cells to give them energy. Without insulin, too much glucose stays in your blood. Over time, high blood glucose can lead to serious problems with your heart, eyes, kidneys, nerves, and gums and teeth. Type 1 diabetes happens most often in children and young adults but can appear at any age. Symptoms may include Being very thirsty Urinating often Feeling very hungry or tired Losing weight without trying Having sores that heal slowly Having dry, itchy skin Losing the feeling in your feet or having tingling in your feet Having blurry eyesight A blood test can show if you have diabetes. If you do, you will need to take insulin for the rest of your life. A blood test called the A1C can check to see how well you are managing your diabetes.

Standardizing Clinically Meaningful Outcome Measures Beyond Hba1c For Type 1 Diabetes: A Consensus Report Of The American Association Of Clinical Endocrinologists, The American Association Of Diabetes Educators, The American Diabetes Association, The Endocrine Society, Jdrf International, The Leona M. And Harry B. Helmsley Charitable Trust, The Pediatric Endocrine Society, And The T1d Exchange.

Standardizing Clinically Meaningful Outcome Measures Beyond Hba1c For Type 1 Diabetes: A Consensus Report Of The American Association Of Clinical Endocrinologists, The American Association Of Diabetes Educators, The American Diabetes Association, The Endocrine Society, Jdrf International, The Leona M. And Harry B. Helmsley Charitable Trust, The Pediatric Endocrine Society, And The T1d Exchange.

To identify and define clinically meaningful type 1 diabetes outcomes beyond hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c) based upon a review of the evidence, consensus from clinical experts, and input from researchers, people with type 1 diabetes, and industry. Priority outcomes include hypoglycemia, hyperglycemia, time in range, diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA), and patient-reported outcomes (PROs). While priority outcomes for type 1 and type 2 diabetes may overlap, type 1 diabetes was the focus of this work. A Steering Committee-comprising representatives from the American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists, the American Association of Diabetes Educators, the American Diabetes Association, the Endocrine Society, JDRF International, The Leona M. and Harry B. Helmsley Charitable Trust, the Pediatric Endocrine Society, and the T1D Exchange-was the decision-making body for the Type 1 Diabetes Outcomes Program. Their work was informed by input from researchers, industry, and people with diabetes through Advisory Committees representing each stakeholder group. Stakeholder surveys were used to identify priority outcomes. The outcomes prioritized in the surveys were hypoglycemia, hyperglycemia, time in range, DKA, and PROs. To develop consensus on the definitions of these outcomes, the Steering Committee relied on published evidence, their clinical expertise, and feedback from the Advisory Committees. The Steering Committee developed definitions for hypoglycemia, hyperglycemia, time in range, and DKA in type 1 diabetes. The definitions reflect their assessment of the outcome's short- and long-term clinical impact on people with type 1 diabetes. Knowledge gaps to be addressed by future research were identified. The Steering Committee discussed PROs and concluded that further type 1 diabetes-spec Continue reading >>

Video Aims To Educate School Staff About Students With Diabetes

Video Aims To Educate School Staff About Students With Diabetes

Video aims to educate school staff about students with diabetes The start of a new school year can be stressful for any family. But when your child has a chronic health problem, it's even more challenging. Type 1 diabetes affects one out of every 500 school-aged children -- and Ethan Rass is one of them. The Beverly Hills 8-year-old was diagnosed when he was in kindergarten. It was during a Halloween party that his parents noticed a red flag. "He was constantly drinking and going to the restroom, so we just knew that something was off," said Ethan's dad, Eric. The day after the party, Ethan said he started to feel sick. At a hospital, his blood sugar tested at more than 500. "After we got to the hospital and I was in my room, they said, 'We think you have diabetes,'" Ethan said. The diagnosis meant Ethan's body was no longer producing insulin, and he would have to deal with replacing it for the rest of his life. The family said they felt overwhelmed, shock and sadness, but they had no choice but to learn a new lifestyle. "How to poke his finger, check his blood sugar, how to count carbs, correction factors, carb ratios. It's a lot to take in," Eric Rass said. And while Ethan quickly learned a routine to manage his disease, the family was worried to send him back to school. "That's one of your first reactions if you have school-age kids. What am I going to do? How can I send my kids to school with this? I barely understand it," Eric Rass said. Dr. Julie Surhigh, a pediatric endocrinologist at Beaumont Children's Hospital, said it's not enough to rely on a school nurse's knowledge because many of them have been eliminated in a growing number of districts. "It's often the secretary in the office or some other administrative person that's doing the diabetes care at the sch Continue reading >>

Sons Diagnosis Fuels Multifaceted Approach To Treating Diabetes

Sons Diagnosis Fuels Multifaceted Approach To Treating Diabetes

VOL. 132 | NO. 38 | Wednesday, February 22, 2017 Sons Diagnosis Fuels Multifaceted Approach to Treating Diabetes Dr. Kashif Latif dedicated his life to the research and treatment of diabetes after his son, who is now 20 years old, was diagnosed with juvenile diabetes when he was just 11 months old. Dr. Kashif Latif has expanded treatment of diabetes beyond the walls of AM Diabetes and Endocrinology Center, establishing a 5K run for juvenile diabetes, providing education on a radio program and more. Now two decades later, Latif operates the AM Diabetes and Endocrinology Center in Bartlett, a comprehensive care facility for patients with diabetes and North Americas only specialized Insulin Pump Center. Dealing with diabetes firsthand, I realized that there was a lot more to it than just the perception part, and I decided I wanted to make an impact for patients who are dealing with this disease day in and day out, Latif said. So I went back and trained, and then developed the center where we have a whole scope of services, with dieticians, diabetes educators and pathologists in order to give patients a more holistic approach to treatment. His reasons for opening the center are multi-faceted. Not only does he want to right perceptions related to the disease, he also seeks to evaluate the disease at all stages, along with the impact on a persons life and the community. Memphis is an epicenter for diabetes, with Tennessee ranking fifth in the nation in its adult obesity rate. More than 29 million people in the U.S. have diabetes, with an estimated 8 million of those being undiagnosed. Patients whose bodies do not produce enough insulin are called Type 1 diabetics. Type 2 diabetics produce enough insulin, but they have insulin resistance so there are times when medication, li Continue reading >>

May28, 1970; 47 years ago(1970-05-28) [1] Executive Office in New York, NY, with Chapters and Branches throughout the U.S. and 6 international affiliates JDRF is a charitable 501(c)(3) organization [3] dedicated to funding type 1 diabetes research (T1D). JDRF's stated vision is "a world without type 1 diabetes." [4] The organization has its executive office in New York City, [5] with chapters and branches throughout the U.S., [6] and international affiliates in Australia, Canada, Denmark, Israel, the Netherlands and the United Kingdom. [7] JDRF was formerly the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. Its name is no longer an initialism . The organization was founded in the New York area on May 28, 1970, as the Juvenile Diabetes Foundation. [1] Led by Lee Ducat, a group of local parents of children with T1D mobilized to raise money for diabetes research, and formed the first chapter of what was then known as the Juvenile Diabetes Foundation. A second chapter was founded shortly thereafter in Miami, Florida, followed by chapters in northern New Jersey and Washington, D.C. The fledgling organization was defined by its commitment to research funding. In addition to the high priority on funding T1D research, the organizations founders resolved to inform the public about all aspects of T1D, advocate for more research funding from the federal government, and maintain the organizations system of management by volunteer lay people. The Juvenile Diabetes Foundation later changed its name to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation to emphasize the need for research. In 2012, it renamed itself again as JDRF, because type 1 diabetes is as much a disease of adults as juveniles. Since its inception, JDRF has evolved to become a worldwide leader in the fight against T1D. JDRF now has Continue reading >>

McGowan and Morrow, now with the Philadelphia Phillies and San Diego Padres organizations respectively, are both Type 1 diabetics, and they were the driving force behind the Blue Jays' original PLAY Campaign event -- Promoting a Lifetime of Activity for Youth -- in coordination with JDRF, helping children realize that they can lead exceptional lives even with their disease. Tweet from @JDRF_Peel: Enjoying Blue Jays PLAY day for [email protected] pic.twitter.com/CGqEuwMRga "It's very inspiring," said Catherine Davies, regional manager for the Toronto branch of JDRF. "The kids realize that there are no limits. They have to work harder at it, without a doubt, but there are no limits in terms of what they can do as individuals, which is so important for the kids. "It's also very important for the parents as well, because it's very challenging. At any second if your child goes too low, they can die. That's the reality of the disease. For a parent, it's also important for them to understand that there aren't limitations and you don't have to put limitations on your children. These athletes are so inspiring."
