Type 2 Diabetes Symptoms

Tweet Type 2 diabetes symptoms will often develop gradually and may not always show symptoms at an earlier stage. Type 2 diabetes symptoms can differ slightly from symptoms of type 1 diabetes. Type 2 diabetes is a lifelong condition. Once symptoms of diabetes have developed into the condition, the body will then be unable to regulate the amount of glucose in the blood. It is important to catch the symptoms as early as possible to limit damage to the body. Although there are 3 main diabetes signs shared by all people with diabetes, type 2 diabetes may sometimes exhibit some specific symptoms, such as certain skin disorders. Symptoms of type 2 diabetes Type 2 diabetes often develops slowly, over a period of years, and the symptoms can therefore also develop gradually. At diagnosis, people who have type 2 diabetes may show little or no symptoms of the condition. Because the symptoms develop slowly, type 2 diabetes may commonly be diagnosed following routine medical examinations or screening tests for non-related conditions. Symptoms of type 2 diabetes may include: Feeling tired during the day, particularly after meals (fatigue) Often feeling hungry, particularly if you feel hungry sho Continue reading >>

    It really depends on the type of insulin.

    Yes, it definitely depends on the insulin. Lantus/detemir- should be given at the same time of day every day, regardless of meal times. Regular, 30 min before eating. Novolog or humalog, 15 minutes to immediately before a meal. Apidra can be given during the meal but probably ideally like the novolog or humalog.
    No hospital patient should have BG in the 300's!!! something is wrong there. The doc should have been called. Sounds like regimen is inadequate, probably inadequate insulin dosing the time before. It's even more necessary for acutely ill pts to have well-controlled BG for optimal healing. Also not right if you feel you have to give a snack or juice!! A snack is 15g carb or less and does not require insulin. Insulin is for basal or mealtime; again, if pt is going low (below 70 or 80 depending on your facility?) then their regimen needs to be adjusted.
    Clinical Diabetes has some great resources on insulin.

    I know quite a few patients that I am fine chilling at 300 while we bring their glucs down slowly (sometimes with a drip if they start hanging out around 500).
    Once you see a resident overcorrect a brittle diabetic and find yourself slamming D50 into a sweaty drooling bucket of a patient at 0645, you tend to acquire a less jaundiced view of those high 200's.
    To the OP: It depends, and it isn't always dependent on eating. Some patients are NPO and still get sliding scale doses. With experience, you learn to use your judgement. Until then, ask your preceptor or coworkers.
