Middle-aged Men Twice As Likely To Have Diabetes As Women

Middle-aged men twice as likely to have diabetes as women Middle-aged men twice as likely to have diabetes as women Men aged 35-54 are almost twice as likely to have diabetes compared to their female counterparts, reveals our new report 'Diabetes in the UK 2009', out today. Key statistics on diabetes shows that 2.4 per cent (around 92,960) of men in England aged 35-44 have diabetes compared to 1.2 per cent (around 47,000) of women of the same age, and 6 per cent (around 197,050) of men aged 45-54 have diabetes compared to 3.6 per cent (around 120,670) of women their age. Statistics also show that diabetes has risen four times faster in men aged 35-44 over the last 12 years compared to women of the same age, and that, consistently, more men are overweight than women. Approximately 90 per cent of people with diabetes have Type 2 diabetes, which is strongly linked to lifestyle factors such as diet and physical activity levels. The condition can be genetic, but many people are overweight when they are diagnosed. Simon ONeill, Diabetes UKs Director of Care, Information and Advocacy, said: Its very worrying that men of this age are developing diabetes at such an alarming rate compared t Continue reading >>

    @BeccaBee83: Honestly, I wouldn’t worry *that* much about it, because getting your sugars too low is way more of a problem than them being a little too high. If you were to add more insulin, you run the risk of getting hypoglycemic in the middle of the night, which is not good. Definitely stick to what your doctors recommended. One thing you could try is a little more exercise, as exercise will help to re-model the cells that have become insulin resistant (but once again, don’t over-do it because you don’t want to get hypoglycemic).

    Another suggestion for exercise. My FI is a type 1 diabetic and exercise makes a huge difference in his A1C and BG numbers. Good luck!

    Wedding: December 2012
    Wow! What an overwhelming response! Thank you all so much for your thoughtful replies.
    I keep trying to remind myself not to obsess about these numbers, because really they are in a good range. Being a little too high is better than being a LOT too high or even worse like you said, way too low.
    As for exercise, I’ve been exercising 30 minutes every day, as suggested by the diabetes counselor. I’m also counting my carb intake for each meal and then totalling them for the entire day. As a general rule I’m supposed to do 15 carbs per snack, 30-45 per meal and not to exceed 175 carbs per day. I’ve been sticking to this diet and exercise regime and I’ve actually lost 12 lbs. since the beginning of my pregnancy. My doctor isn’t too considered as long as the baby is measuring okay and I’m eating enough. In the beginning I wasn’t eating nearly enough (probably due to morning sickness), but now I’m doing much better. I’m trying to keep everything I eat healthy, though I admit that my cravings do make me slip up once in a while.
    It’s so hard and frustrating to watch other pregnant ladies stuff whatever/whenever they want in their face, while I have to be counting carbs and pricking my finger several times throughout the day. I suppose it’s helping me to lose weight, which could be a blessing. Maybe it’ll make it that much easier to lose the weight after delivery? After nine months of eating healthy and carefully, I am hoping that it’ll be a lifestyle change rather than something I did while I was pregnant!!!
    Fasting numbers are SO hard to control. Sometimes I’m down to 81 and then other days I’m at 112. I don’t understand the rhyme or reason to it. In the beginning I used to think that the longer I waited, the lower my numbers would be, but then I soon realize the opposite happened. My liver started doing a glucose “dump” (as my diabetes counselor calls it) and my numbers were higher.
    Last night I tried a small bowl of cereal with milk before bed. Then I woke up around 5am (had to pee – surprise, surprise! haha) and decided to test my blood sugar for the heck of it. I was shocked to see 78 as my number!!!!!! WAHHOOOOO! Finally I did something right!!!
    I don’t know if it was because of the “snack” choice before bed last night or if it was because I tested my fasting blood sugar after 8 hours instead of the normal 11-12 hours that I usually wait. Maybe I shouldn’t be testing my fasting so long afterwards?
    I used to eat dinner at 6pm, then I wouldn’t have anything until the next morning after I woke up. I would test my fasting blood sugar around 7am when I woke up and then have breakfast. Perhaps I was waiting too long to test my fasting numbers???
    Also, when I exercise before bed it makes my numbers skyrocket – the doctor and diabetes counselor advised against that one in my particular case. Instead they want me to do 10 minutes of light exercise throughout the day, which really seems to be helping my daytime numbers, which they say are perfect!
    It really does help to hear that I’m not alone in this, because all I see around me is my pregnant friends/relatives who can eat as much of whatever they want and it’s really frustrating. I get so upset that I have to do injections every night and prick my fingers multiple times every day. I just wish I could be normal.

    Which apps for the iWatch do people find useful? I just got a iWatch3, partly because I was concerned that my heart rate was high. There do appear to be quite a few useful health related apps and diabetes apps. The Cardiogram free heart rate app seems quite good.

A lot of women on my father's side of the family have type 2 diabetes, and I wonder if I am more at risk because of my gender?

Gender And T2dm - Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus - Diapedia, The Living Textbook Of Diabetes

In the first half of the last century the prevalence of type 2 diabetes was higher among women than among men, but this trend has shifted, so more men than women are now diagnosed with type 2 diabetes . This change in the gender distribution of type 2 diabetes is mainly caused by a more sedentary lifestyle particularly among men, resulting in increased obesity. However, recent data have also shown that men develop diabetes at a lower degree of obesity than women a finding which adds support to the view that the pathogenesis of type 2 diabetes differs between men and women. Observations of sex differences in body fat distribution, insulin resistance, sex hormones, and blood glucose levels further support this notion. Figure 1: Cross-sectional abdominal magnetic resonance image of an obese woman and an obese man [1]. Obesity is one of the main risk factors for type 2 diabetes, and especially the abdominal visceral fat is associated with increased type 2 diabetes risk. Body fat distribution differs by sex [1] , and in general men have more abdominal fat, whereas women have more peripheral fat also denoted as apple versus pear shape. Looking into the abdominal fat, men also tend to ha Continue reading >>

    I have a friend with no insurance. Ran out of Humalog(n Sat.)
    Can't you buy insulin at Walmart really cheap? Would it be like Humalog?

  2. RomeoEcho

    Regular and nph can both be bought over the counter anywhere for substantially less than the analogs. Walmart has a relion brand of these for much cheaper (I've done it before and I think that it was about $25 a bottle, though that was a number of years ago). Humalog would still be expensive and require a prescription. Walmart may be cheaper than a regular chain pharmacy. Costco is also substantially less expensive than cvs, they also have a discount program for people without insurance.

  3. Jake's mom

    Maybe check at the local hospital outpatient pharmacy. There is a non for profit hospital in our area that sells humalog/novalog for six dollars for either a box of 5 quick pens or a box of two vials. It's a little bit of a trip for us but they will sell a 3 month supply, so it's worth it.
