Signs & Symptoms Of Untreated Diabetes

There are two main types of diabetes mellitus--Type 1 and Type 2. Type 1 diabetes is when your body is dependent upon injections of insulin to keep you alive. This kind typically starts either at birth or in your childhood years. Type 2 diabetes means you need medications to balance the glucose or sugar in your bloodstream with insulin. There also is gestational diabetes that affects pregnant women, and diabetes insipidus. Video of the Day If you have Type 1 or Type 2 diabetes but you have not yet been diagnosed, one of the early warning signs is a dramatic increase in your thirst. This occurs because there is not enough insulin in your body to break down the glucose to make it useful to your body, so much of it flushes straight out. In extreme cases, you may feel as if you cannot possibly quench your thirst, no matter how much you drink. If you notice you are drinking more fluids than usual—and you are not doing strenuous work or exercise—it is possible you are developing diabetes. With the increase in your consumption of fluids to quench your increased thirstiness, you naturally will need to urinate more frequently. The problem with diabetes is that you will continue to lose Continue reading >>

    Why stress causes Type 2 Diabetes

    This is an easy explanation of why stress worsen diabetes:
    Stress is defined as the body’s reaction to a change in the environment that requires a physical, mental or emotional response.The physiological reactions to stress begins with the perception of stress.The perception of stress results in an activation of the autonomic nervous system to react in emergency situations. Under a stressful situation, the human body responds by quickly mobilising its resources in order to get away from danger or face it.This instinctive physiological response to perceived threats is known as "fight or flight” (Cannon, 1932). The "fight or flight" is an incredible way of communication between the body cells in response to a perceived threat. This response is an instinctive and automatic reaction that prepares the body to "fight" or "flee" from perceived attack, harm or threat to our survival. The danger is perceived first by the eyes, which send signals to a part of the brain called “hypothalamus”, which in turn send a signal to the adrenal gland (in the kidney) in order to secret the stress hormones (called cortisol and epinephrine) that stimulate a rapid access to stored energy (fat and glucose) to help the body to react faster in an emergency. the cortisol facilitates a quick release of glucose from the liver into the bloodstream, and this helps to accelerate the heart rate, raise blood pressure and strengthen muscles… in order to fight or flee from danger.
    When the danger is over, normal people regain their normal relaxed state quickly because the normal body have the ability to secrete more insulin to restore the excess of glucose in the bloodstream back into the liver. However, human body may not cope with this process cycle, especially when stress persists for a longer period of time (in the case of chronic stress). As a result, the excess of glucose build-up in the bloodstream, causing hyperglycemia, and thus, Type 2 diabetes.
    I hope this can help understand how stress causes type 2 diabetes.

Impact Of Untreated Diabetes

Diabetes mellitus is a condition where the glucose quantity in our body is very high, which is definitely not a healthy sign since excess glucose could lead to various health issues. One dreaded issue with Type 2 diabetes is that its progress can be often very slow and symptomless. Many individuals do not experience any signs of diabetes, even though their bodies are already being harmed internally. So, how is it possible to know whether you are at a risk of becoming diabetic? The best way to recognize it is to be little cautious about your body, especially if you: Are Inactive and lead a sedentary lifestyle Have a family history of diabetes Overweight with BMI higher than 25 Older than 45 yrs of age Are of certain descendent like African, South Asian, Hispanic etc Have high triglycerides Although the problematic signs of type 2 diabetes may develop slowly over a span of many years, the condition will cause certain symptoms for many people.

    What is type 1.5 diabetes? Read this first!

    So what is type 1.5 diabetes? It depends upon whom you ask!
    Typically, it refers to one of the following conditions:
    LADA or Latent Autoimmune Diabetes in Adults or Slow Onset Type 1. This is a form of type 1. It's an autoimmune disease diagnosed in those over 25 at age of diagnosis. It is different from regular type 1 in that it's onset is slow (even slower than the honeymoon phase of type 1) and many people won't even require insulin for the first year or two. Due to older age at diagnosis, and limit insulin dependency at diagnosis, it may be mistaken for type 2, but can be distinguished from type 2 by positive antibodies, limited risk factors for type 2, and a faster progression to insulin than type 2. NOTE: You are most likely not LADA if you are diagnosed type 1 at a later age. You can get type 1 diabetes at any age.
    MODY or Maturity Onset Diabetes of Youth. Diagnosed in kids, this is a genetic form of diabetes that is known to run in families. It has many forms, MODY 3 being the most common. It is characterized by lower than normal insulin levels, lack of insulin resistance, a strong family history, and a young age at diagnosis. However, there is not absolute insulin deficiency, antibody testing will be negative, and it usually responds well to oral hyperglycemic agents. In other words, it may be treatable without insulin. There is genetic testing that can be done to diagnosis MODY, but it can be inconclusive.
    What Belongs In This Forum?
    In this forum, we use type 1.5 to describe both LADA and MODY. Type 1.5 diabetes is not used to describe double diabetes (when a type 1 becomes insulin resistant).
    The Golden Rule
    Please do not argue about the definition of type 1.5. This is vague and poorly defined word - just ask the American Diabetes Association. For our purposes, think of it as everything that's not type 1, type 2, or "double diabetes".

Symptoms Of Untreated Diabetes In Cats

Diabetes in cats, if left untreated, can be fatal. There are a number of symptoms you can look for and alert your vet to the potential of diabetes. The faster you get a diagnosis, the faster you can put together a treatment plan and help your cat feel better. While, diabetes is a serious condition, if diagnosed and treated quickly, your cats diabetes can be controlled through diet and activity levels. Even if your cat is suffering from a more difficult stage of diabetes, you can treat your cat with daily injections, much as humans with diabetes. After a diagnosis speak with your vet about the best treatment methods for your cat and work your cat into a routine that includes these treatments. Your cat may be resistant to his new routine at first, but will start feeling better almost immediately. Excessive Thirst in Diabetic cats When your cat's body over produces insulin it causes the kidneys to work over time trying to flush the excess out. This means your cat needs to replenish fluids more often than usual. If you notice your cat is drink more water than usual, this may be a symptom of diabetes.

    Switching from Lantus to Levemir?

    Hi all,
    I am posting because my insurance plan changed and it might not be covering my Lantus any longer, but the letter I received says it will cover Tresiba, Levemir, or Basaglar.
    I know nothing at all about Tresiba or Basaglar, but do know of Levemir as my mother uses it.
    The letter also says that I can ask my doctor for generic prescriptions, but I am unfamiliar with any generics for Lantus, does anyone know if there is one? I am reading up on all of this tonight by the way, but I am always first to post here because you all make it less stressful!
    I take 15u of Lantus at midnight before bed, and that's it, I don't split my dosage, so I just wanted to see what the experiences were switching to another insulin for others.
    Has anyone switched from Lantus to Levemir? What were the differences if any? Was the transition smooth? How did you calculate your dosage/did it change at all (one single dose to a split dose)?
    Has anyone switched from Lantus to either of the other two insulins? I haven't read anything on them so I will have to just to see, but because I am familiar with Levemir I figured it would be my first to look into.
    Just another hoop and a jump-skip to go through at the beginning of the year with insurance But I'm sure I will figure things out! Thanks for the help all!!

  2. daisy707

    And as soon as I posted this I see that Basaglar is very similar to Lantus! GOOD TO KNOW! I know that it's easy to Google things, but I still like hearing everyone's feedback

  3. Lloyd

    Lantus lasts from 18 to 26 hours. Levemir lasts from 12 to 16 hours. So, depending on your needs, a split dosage might be in order.
