Type II Diabetes: You are so fortunate that you have type II rather than type 1. Type II can be reversed but it takes some work. The rate of type II is growing, even among children. We can all get sick but w/out controlling your diabetes you raise the risk of sores on feet, amputations, visual issues, blindness, etc. Please seek out a support group. You can do it. Many others have. Peace and good health. ...Read more

Have liver chirrosis and diabetes. Is diet for good control of diabetes adequate for chirrosis control? Struggling to know how to eat to manage both.

Complex problem: Diet is important in diabetes from the beginning, but is less of a factor in caring for cirrhosis until the advanced stages, which today often never happen. The key is finding the cause of the cirrhosis and treating it if possible -- improved diabetes management can often slow the progress of liver disease from another source. Trusting you do not have missed hemochromatosis. Best wishes. ...Read more

Is it safe for a young child, diagnosed with type 1 diabetes for 6 years, to go without insulin and control the diabetes only by diet?

Is it safe for a young child, diagnosed with type 1 diabetes for 6 years, to go without insulin and control the diabetes only by diet?

Don't miss insulin!: For any patient diagnosed with type I diabetes it is dangerous to miss Insulin doses. Patients who don't make Insulin anymore will develop a condition called, diabetic ketoacidosis (dka), if they don't take their Insulin regardless of diet. This is a life-threatening emergency where the body makes ketones as an alternate source of emergency fuel, which causes a dangerous acid build up in the body. ...Read more

Ogtt's curve is "flat".Glycemia doesn't increase after 75gr of glucose. Basal Insulin is high. Should it be early diabetes? Insulinoma? Wrong diet? Thanks

Prediabetes: High levels of insulin are usually an indication of insulin resistance which is a key factor in the development of type 2 diabetes. You should have a HgbA1c drawn and see if you are prediabetic. If you are, weight loss and medications such as metformin can help to prevent the development of diabetes. ...Read more
