Common Myths About Type 1 Diabetes

For new patient appointments, you may request an appointment online. For returning patient appointments, you may contact the clinic directly. When a child is first diagnosed with type 1 diabetes, a family may feel confused and overwhelmed. It can be difficult to navigate through the correct information as there are many types of diabetes and many different insulin regimens. As families work with pediatric endocrinologists and their teams, it is important to try to avoid false information about type 1 diabetes. Myth #1: It's my fault my child has diabetes. When a child is first diagnosed with type 1 diabetes, one of the first emotions a parent will feel is guilt. This is because many initially assume that diet plays a role in the development of the condition. This, however, isn't true. Type 1 diabetes is not simply the junior version of type 2 diabetes. We now know it's an autoimmune disease, and currently there is not a way to prevent the development of Type 1 Diabetes. So don't blame yourself for your child's diagnosis. Myth #2: Children with diabetes cant have sweets ever. If a child has type 1 diabetes, the child and his family are going to have to think more about what he eats Continue reading >>

    Took Insulin and Vomiting

    The following question came in via email:

    What should you do if you have take insulin before a meal, then after eating throw up (probably all you've eaten)? I am sorry, I know gross but I know the insulin is not in my stomach like the food, so I would think it would still want to do it's job, but there isn't food left to work with. I know if I were to try to eat anything else I'd throw up again.... What should I do? Has this happened to Elizabeth before? Will I crash now?
    If you've taken insulin and can't keep food down, it's important to contact your doctor right away. If your doctor is unavailable, you need to head to an emergency clinic or hospital asap. Without food, insulin will force your blood sugar to keep dropping until it's out of your system, which can be many hours depending upon which type you've taken.
    If your blood sugar is dropping like a rock, it's important to have [ame="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Glucagon"]glucogon[/ame] on hand. Glucagon is an amino acid that causes your liver to dump gluocse into the bloodsgream. It can be a life-saver as a last resort. It is taken via intramuscular injection.

    I would also add that if you can slowly sip something like sprite or juice then do that on your way to the hospital.

    I'd also think glucose tabs might work well, too. The absorption rate from them is very fast, and there's a lot of quickly digested sugar in a little bit of solid that quickly dissolves.
    So I imagine if that happened, eating and promptly throwing up, I'd first try to see if I had enough glucose tabs to cover half the carbs the shot was going to take care of, and eat them. If they stay down for 15 minutes, eat another set to cover carbs needing to be covered, and then monitor my blood sugars from there on out.

Insulin Therapy In Pregnant Women With Preexisting Diabetes

Insulin Therapy in Pregnant Women With Preexisting Diabetes Insulin Therapy in Pregnant Women With Preexisting Diabetes The researchers analyzed data from 554 women with preexisting diabetes from 5 clinical trials. A recent review evaluated the evidence for insulin types and regimens for treating pregnant women with preexisting diabetes. The results were published in Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews.1 Pregnant women with type 1 diabetes may require 3 to 4 times the pre-pregnancy dose of insulin,2 and some pregnant women with type 2 diabetes may need insulin therapy if they cannot achieve glycemic control with lifestyle management and oral hypoglycemic agents.3-5 Pregnancy-related outcomes are worse in women with diabetes than in women without diabetes, and diabetes is becoming increasingly common in women of childbearing age. In addition, new types of insulin and regimens have been developed, and their safety in pregnancy has not been established. The optimal insulin therapy strategies in pregnant women with preexisting diabetes are currently unknown. In a systematic review, researchers evaluated the safety and efficacy outcomes in pregnant women with preexisting type 1 or Continue reading >>

    Okay, so I'll keep it short and sweet, but I'm almost four months out from my heart surgery, and I'm still getting high blood sugar readings.
    I actually had no prior history of blood sugar issues or diabetes, but ever since the surgery, my levels have been running insanely high.
    Overall, it's really depressing. /: I already had enough issues to need an aneurysm repair and aortic valve replacement two months short of my 19th birthday, but if I've actually got diabetes now, I don't know how to handle that too.
    Did anyone else run into this problem? Did it ever clear up for you? I'm just... I'm frustrated and upset, honestly.
    Like I said, living with the heart problems was already hard enough.

  2. escargome

    Hi,
    A few questions - Did you run high blood sugars while you were in the hospital? If so were you discharged with either insulin (with injection instructions) or with oral diabetes medication? What do you test your blood sugars with?
    Since you are 4 months out from surgery, has your doctor given you the go ahead to resume your normal activities? Are you a sedadentary person or active. Increase in activity plus a balanced diet with an appropriate amount of carbs should lower your blood sugars.
    I hope that things clear up for you soon.

  3. ElectLive

    Elevated blood sugar is very common after heart surgery, for anyone, but the severity and duration can vary a lot. For most non-diabetics, though, it seems to usually resolve before discharge, but certainly not always. Some may not even be aware it is even happening. On the other side of the spectrum, for already Type 1 diabetics such as me, I found the effect to last many months, certainly as long as you are experiencing. It did resolve with time.
    I think probably the most important thing is how it is evolving. In other words, has it been improving any over time? Always happening or only after meals, etc? Are you positive you didn't have any prior history?
    I understand your frustration, but just so know, assuming for the sake of discussion that the worst case is actually true and you might by chance even be a late onset Type 1 diabetic, it is very manageable with education and experience. Heck...kids like me were doing it in elementary school 30 years ago, so it couldn't be that hard, right? :biggrin2: Anyway, I don't mean to make light of the situation, nor do I want to imply I think this is a definite possibility, but obviously as one who has both conditions, just wanted to pass a long a little reassurance just in case. Do monitor and stay on top of it, with endocrinologist oversight if need be, and here's hoping the situation improves, as may certainly be possible. Best wishes to you.

Nice Guidelines For Type 1 Diabetes In Adults: Implications For Insulin Regimens

NICE guidelines for type 1 diabetes in adults: implications for insulin regimens NICE guidelines for type 1 diabetes in adults: implications for insulin regimens This July, the National Institute for Clinical Excellence (NICE) published its latest guidance for health professionals, covering type 1 diabetes in adults and children (NICE, 2004). The 112 page document, entitled Type 1 diabetes: diagnosis and management of type 1 diabetes in children, young people and adults, is comprehensive and (in the main), easy to read and digest, with helpful sections on the key messages it contains, algorithms for the management of acute situations and structure of care, and recommendations for future research priorities. It separates the guidance for the management of children and adults, which serves to remind health professionals of the important differences between these two populations, but also reminds us that todays children with type 1 diabetes will be tomorrows adults with type 1 diabetes and thus we have to keep in mind the long game that is diabetes care.

    However, if you are not diabetic, I don't know of any valid reason that you would need to purchase insulin for. It won't get you high, and it is extremely dangerous for someone who's pancreas works as it's supposed to. If you are considering suicide or anything like it, please please call a hotline or check yourself in at the hospital. It's worth it to wait until you feel better, you can always revisit your options later, don't end all of your options now.

    You have to ask the pharmacist if they are willing to stock Lilly N and R or not. Those are still sold over the counter without a prescription. Lilly Regular (R) is a fast acting acting insulin and can be QUITE fatal. Lilly N (Nph) is longer acting insulin with 24 hour approximately with a peak in 8 to 12 hours., although that may have changed since human $NA insulin came onto the market in the mid and late 1980's. Eli Lilly no longer has a monoploy on insulin. If the pharmacy does not have it stock because you specifically ask that that they stock it. you are out of luck. insulin doesn't do much good if you cannot inject it, and you do have to have a prescription for syringes, needles or pens or be relying health care professionals to prove you with samples, and how much they can give one person at one time is regulated by the the government or the pharmaceutical companies in the united states. I recently had to go back and have Humalog exchanged for Novolog. This time the beggar COULD be a chooser.
    I have fought my way out of MANY low blood sugar incidents including JUST YESTERDAY so many times over the kast 60+ years. Insulin CAN be a very effective murder weapon, because death by low blood sugar , hypoglycemia, does not leave much evidence behind once rigor mortis sets in.
    Type 1 diabetic for 60+ YEARS and counting.
    I am NOT a healthcare professional, but my closest friend and soul sister and designated health proxy IS an M.D.

    The older Regular and NPH insulin are available at Walmart without a prescription at least in Colorado and New Mexico but I suspect everywhere.
    While not as good as the newer insulin’s they will keep you alive.
    Last time I was visiting NM and ran out of my short acting I ended up purchasing a bottle or R for around $12 or $15 without the need of a prescription.
    When I returned to Colorado and spoke with the pharmacist at Walmart I was told it was the same in Colorado.
    The newer insulin formulations that sell for $350 a bottle now require a prescription even if you are willing to pay cash for them. I personally believe that this is in violation of the Declaration of Independence and should not be allowed to be the case. If you have type 1 Diabetes your pursuit of Life Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness is dependent on your ability to live so we need access to insulin and syringes with out impediment.
    Syringes though are a different story, as previously answered it is state dependent whether you can get them without a prescription.
    I was on an extended stay in California some 40+ years ago and ran out of syringes and went to the closest Pharmacy to where I was staying. They refused to sell me any syringes and I got very upset. They called the police as I was not being very calm about the whole thing. A officer came in and escorted me to a different part of San Diego where I was able to purchase syringes on my signature .
    At that time you could by syringes in Mo. where I was from with out a prescription.

    The new Insulin types that cost $350 a bottle now get manufactured for less than a $1 a bottle. Next time you want to vote for a Republican keep that in mind.
