Type 2 diabetes: Type 2 diabetes may occur at your age but that would be uncommon if you are not overweight. Please check this with your doctor. If you have type 2 diabetes you can beat it within a year!!! Cholesterol and BP are not far from normal and should be "normal" if you control your diabetes.

27yr old female 140lbs diagnosed with type 2 diabetes last year. I've never been overweight. Why do I have this? Hereditary? My grandmother had it.
Same as any age: If you are sure it's type 2, then it's just like type 2 in any age: Insulin deficiency or Insulin resistance or both. The most common cause of type 2 is obesity. There are many diabetes drugs currently available that do not cause weight gain. These would be the best to use. Talk to a physician about these choices. Good luck. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I am a 57 year old female with type 2 diabetes.I have lost about 100lbs. A doctor told me that i wouldnt lose anymore. What r ur thoughts?
Depends: It depends on your current weight and your ideal weight. With diabetes, it's usually not a question of possibility (of course you can lose more) but of safety. Regardless, the closest you are to your ideal weight and the closest you are to a stable normal blood pressure and blood sugar, the better. You may even get to go off your diabetes meds (i've had patients do that). ...Read more

Is it normal to have trouble urinating (weak stream and delay) 24 hours after discectomy (62 year old male, type 2 diabetes)?

Other causes include reflux disease. Post nasal drips can also cause "tickle" at back of throat but typically will not cause you to vomit.

I am 18 years old with type 2 diabetes and i was wondering if some of the medications im taking could be effecting my period? I am 18 years old and i currently have type 2 diabetes. I have been on numerous medications some of them have been stopped after
I : I need you to clarify a few things. What medication are you on now? If it is only victoza r=then that medication does not cause menstrual irregularities. Also was your first period evern this year? If you are overweight, this is likely the reason you are not having periods. When you are overweight your body produces too much estrogen which cause an imbalance in your hormones thus preventing your period. Also there is a syndrome called polycystic ovarian syndrome which tends to be common in diabetics, this is also an issue with a hormonal imbalance, also thyroid disorders can be a possible cause. I suggest you visit a gynecologist or your primary care provider for a work up of your irregular periods. Best of luck. ...Read more
