Can Men With Diabetes Have Children
Depends: Diabetes is not a pass thru defect or gene issue like eye color. Lifetime risk in offspring would be higher than the general population for type 1dm but not >5%. For type 2dm lifestyle (feeding) factors heavily influence lifetime risk and could be substantial. Healthy dietary & exercise practices decrease type 2 risks.See 1 more doctor answer
When symptoms appear: The us preventive services task force reviewed this and found that screening all overweight men without symptoms for diabetes was not clearly beneficial. However, if someone has increased thirst or urination, dizziness, fatigue or weight change, they should be checked - this is technically not screening if there are symptoms.

Heard conflicting advise on calcium dosage for men. What is optimum dose if I have diabetes, osteoperosis & osteomalacia but normal calcium levels?
Don't take calcium: You need to take sufficient vitamin d from sun or supplements to be in the high side of normal. This may require as much as 10, 000 units of vitamin d3 a day. Do not take calcium supplements. All healthy unprocessed food contains calcium and all the other necessary minerals like magnesium.And zinc that you need. Small doses of zinc blocks osteoclasts. Cadmium plays a role in all these problems.

Can a 430lbs men go on a 1000 calorie diet by having 2 meal replacements and a very low calorie dinner all this with type 2 diabetes?
Possible: I recommend you do this under the supervision of your physician to monitor your electrolytes and adjust your diabetes medications as you start losing weight. Remember the best diet is one you can maintain for life so unless there is a medical reason to do something this drastic, I think you should talk to your doctor and come up with a sustainable plan. Good luck to you.See 1 more doctor answer

No: Type I (Juvenile Diabetes) affects a small, yet growing number of children in the United States. It is due to an autoimmune phenomenon where the pancreas ceases to produce insulin. Type II (adult onset) is becoming a growing concern among morbidly obese adolescents which leads insulin resistance. The body can not produce enough insulin to meet the demands.
Infancy: The youngest child in my practice with new onset diabetes was about 8 months old. She had recurrent yeast diaper rash and had elevated sugar levels in her urine and blood. Any child can be tested for diabetes with a urinalysis and a blood sugar level, so technically a newborn can be tested for diabetes. Diabetes is very uncommon in young infants.See 1 more doctor answer

Usually Type 1: Though rates of type 2 dm are rising in this country, by far the most prevalent is type 1 in children, particularly pre-pubertal. Kids present with frequent, large volume urination, thirst, weight loss initially. Then they can start to vomit, get belly pain, and dehydrate. Insulin is the only treatment for type 1 diabetes in both kids and adults. Treatment is life-saving.See 1 more doctor answer
