    But type 2 diabetes is often too cavalierly treated both by the patients themselves, but also by many docs, so many are chronically badly controlled, leading to catastrophic complications like heart attack, stroke, limb amputation, blindness, kidney failure, neuropathy etc. Many don’t/won’t understand that they need not smoke, have optimal blood pressure and serum lipid control, and be frequently examined for eye complications to prevent blindness.

    “Dangerous” is a very loaded word. Both types of diabetes have their risks. Only about 5% of individuals with diabetes have been diagnosed with type 1. The other 95% have type 2. In a previous post on diabetes, I pointed out that type 1 and type 2 are not single diseases but are a group of diseases under these convenient umbrellas.
    Type 1 individual no longer produce insulin. This can happen from injury to the pancreas, disease and iatrogenic causes. Iatrogenic means, no one really knows why they got type 1. Viral infections are suspected but no causality has been found. Their body equilibrium is maintained by balancing their intake of injectable insulin, food and exercise. Illness and stress are also factors. Because they produce no insulin disruptions in their balance can be devastating. Control is much better now, but lack of control over blood sugars caused side effects and complications for many type 1 diabetics. It is easier for a type 1 to have high and to have low blood sugars if they don’t maintain tight control of diet, exercise and insulin.
    Type 2 diabetics still produce insulin but their body seems to be unable to use the insulin ‘normally’ or ‘efficiently’. Obesity has been cited in a lot of posts. Obesity increases the number of cells that the insulin has to interact with to shuttle sugar molecules from the blood stream into the cells. More acreage to cover, less efficient use of the limited supplies of insulin. But this alone doesn’t ‘cause’ diabetes, it is a complicating factor.
    A type 2 diabetic has a wide range of drugs to help improve their personal production of insulin as well as to increase the sensitivity of their cells to the insulin they do have. They can also be put on insulin. I have serious complications with the diabetic drugs ranging from mild headaches that last forever and going all the way to liver rebellion. Not a pretty site, so I have been on insulin since the age of 27, I’m now 59.
    A type 2 diabetic is less prone to low blood sugars and more prone to high blood sugars. They are also more at risk for diabetic complications, not because their disease is more severe, but because they generally live longer than Type 1 diabetics, though that gap is rapidly closing thanks to research and treatment advances.
    As to being dangerous: both diseases have their danger. You can think of type 1 as a quick and angry type of danger and type 2 ans a sneaking, creeping danger.

Good Sources Of Fiber For Pregnant Women

Pregnancy is not always easy on digestion. Increased progesterone levels and an expanding uterus can relax intestinal muscles and slow down your digestive processes. Add to that the stool-hardening effect of iron tablets—commonly prescribed during pregnancy—and it's no wonder you feel unpleasantly plugged. Constipation is uncomfortable, and it also puts you at risk of developing pregnancy-related horrors like hemorrhoids. A high-fiber diet can help you establish a more comfortable regularity, and eating fiber-rich foods is important for overall health and well-being during pregnancy and postpartum. Benefits of Fiber Fiber-rich foods are especially beneficial during pregnancy as they help prevent glucose intolerance, a condition that can sometimes lead to gestational diabetes. "Pregnant women with type 1 diabetes may be able to reduce the amount of insulin they use if they eat a high fiber diet," according to the University of Maryland Medical Center. A diet high in fiber during pregnancy may also help reduce the risk of developing conditions such as high blood pressure and preeclampsia. The American Pregnancy Association recommends that pregnant women eat 25 to 30 grams of diet Continue reading >>

    Has anybody developed swollen feet and ankles by taking Metformin ?
    I took 2 tabs @ 500 mg per day for a very long time with no problems. When increased to 3 tabs @ 500 mg per day my left foot started to puff up a little. When increased to 4 tabs @ 500 mg per day, the left foot and ankle became swollen and the right foot also.
    My Doctor has reduced the Metformin to 2 tabs per day @ 500 mg and supplemented it with 1 tab Gliclazide @ 80 mg per day. It is too early to make a judgement, but my feet have almost returned to normal after just over a week. Other people on the web have complained about 2,000 mg of Metformin per day making their feet and ankles swell.
    Has anybody else had this trouble ?
    from the look of it at present, in my case there is no doubt about it.
    My last HbA1c reading over month ago was 63 mmol/mol or 7.9 %. Not a disaster, but could be better.

    average amount of insulin for type 1

    Hi, Im a young type 1 diabetic and i was wondering what is the average dose for a type one diabetic? I fear i am taking to little- 1unit at breakfast &lunch and 2 units at night along with 14units lantus in morning-giving me a total of 18units of insulin a day. they say that u should replace ur insulin within 1 month of opening it and my novorapid looks like it has been hardly touched when i have to throw it out after one month because very little has been used. Is anyone else on this small a dosage???

  2. Sweetpee

    A rule of thumb is .5 unitst for every kilo of body weight. So if you weigh less than 40 kilos you are ok.

  3. HarleyGuy

    Nothing is "average" when talking about diabetes and who takes what, and who has what. I'd be having a serious talk with my CDE or Endo or Primary care Dr. if I had a concern.
    Much would depend on how your current dosage effects your meals. Do you know what your 3 month bs average is?(A1C)
    Good luck Jackie
