just wanting to know if there is any other diabetic people on this forum, either type 1 or type 2. I am 14 years old and got diagnosed with type 1 diabetes In I think March or April of this year. I use the insulin pen to take my humalog and lantus. If you don't know what those are, the Humalog is a fast acting insulin that you take before you eat and Lantus is long lasting that I take before I go to bed. So any other diabetic people on the forum?

I'm not a diabetic to my knowledge, but a few years ago I was borderline. I was always very angry back then too for some reason.

The only openly diabetic person that I know is my grandpa. I've not seen anyone else eating sugar-free or pulling out an injector or anything.

I'm 27 years old, I turn 28 this year and I've been a type 1 Diabetic for 24 years, going on 25. I was diagnosed a month from turning 4 years old, I don't know any other way to live. I was on an insulin pump for 6 years until it malfunctioned while I was sleeping and nearly killed me by inducing a hypoglycemic seizure. Don't let that give you a foul opinion of insulin pumps though, that was over 10 years ago, and the technology has changed tremendously. I'm currently using Lantus/Levemir and Humalog/Novalog, been using the combo of those since I was 19 and it has worked out great.

 

No I'm not in poor health, lazy, overweight, or have a sh*tty diet.

 

For those that live on your own, or you're just starting out in this lifestyle, I highly recommend http://allrecipes.co...diets/diabetic/ Allrecpies has an amazing section of Diabetic meals with instructions that are very easy to follow.

 

For any of you that have questions about anything related to Diabetes feel free to pm me and I would gladly help and answer to the best of my abilities.

My mother has type 1 diabetes since when she was 11. It's pretty tough living with someone that has diabetes, having to take care of her when she has hypoglycaemic seizures and sh*t. But she takes care of herself and goes to the gym 6 times a week at 5:30 AM.

 

Make sure you take care of yourself and watch over your blood sugar and exercise.

 

PS: For those of you that don't know, you don't have to be a fat f*ck to have diabetes. Some people are just born with it (type 1). Type 2 is the one you get when you're a fat f*ck.

No, being fat doesn't make a person a diabetic. It is a genetic failure, like predisposing to cancers. It is 'caused' by many things. Consuming sugary items is as much a cause as Chocolate is to acne, or porn to blindness. 

 

The Medical Arts practitioners try to use scientific methods  as a basis to scare people into conformity regarding diet.  So why do fat people not have it, why do skinny people get it?  

 

The resulting defects are varied. For me it is the  inability to sleep more than three hours at a time, toe joints that always look bruised. Vision problems depending on blood glucose levels, which Is why I frequently complain about oversized images on these forums (prior to the change).

 

A Doctor once told me, "Medicine is an art, not a science."

I have read, "Doctors have to practice, while the subjects have to be patient."

I didn't say it was. I am saying that being fat does not mean you will be diabetic.

I believe that Diabetes is a genetic fault.

I was tall and skinny until age 12.

My Dad has type 2 diabetes and this increases my chances of getting it in the future. Well, it's what I've been told by many. 

 

A question. Why are my chances of getting Diabetes higher when my Dad had got it after I was born? I'm guessing it's to do with genetics but I'm not sure of the exact reason.

The weird thing about me is that I have type 1 diabetes, but neither my mom or my dad can think of anyone in their family that has had diabetes. So I know it's a genetic thing, but if I remember the doctor said, that is was just a gene that became dominant in me for no reason, I just got unlucky. 

To Shoumic, I'm no expert on diabetes at all, but I think you have a higher chance of getting it know, because know the doctors know that it can become dominant in you, just like it did with your dad. If this is wrong, I'm sorry, I'm just guessing thats why.

And like Tetsuo said, you don't have to be fat and unhealthy to get Type 1 diabetes. I am 5'6 130lbs and play tennis and baseball and ate relatively good, and still got it. All the kids at my school that have Type 1 diabetes are all pretty skinny actually. It's only Type 2 that you get from being unhealthy.

I was going to create a topic about this, but search actually worked for once.

 

I'm a Type 1 diabetic, diagnosed in 2008 when I was 9. My dad is also Type 1, so I guess I got it from him. Anyone else on the forum diabetic?

First thing: I was half joking. Rat Bastard is one of my favorite joke insults.
Secondly: He's clearly talking about type 2 diabetes where being overweight is one of the biggest risk factors.
Thirdly: This was a year ago.

Same here it runs in the older family members everybody in my family eventually gets it by time they are 50.

 

I hope it skips a generation or two.

I've had Type-1 Diabetes since I was 15 (ten years now). I'm also on the basal-bolus regimen, but use "Novorapid" (Aspart) instead of "Humalog" (Lispro).

There's quite a history of auto-immunity on my mothers side of the family. Oddly, my T1DM was caused by anti-TPO antibodies (my mother has autoimmune hypothyroidism).

 


 Secondly: He's clearly talking about type 2 diabetes where being overweight is one of the biggest risk factors.

You're correct, Type-2 Diabetes is highly corrolated to obesity, whereas Type-1 is most commonly caused by autoimmunity.

As far as I know, no I don't have it. But it runs in the family. My great grandmother on my mother's side had it, my grandfather has it, and my mother has it. Nobody in our family, on my mother's side, is obese by the way.

I will develop Diabetes at some point in my life. It runs in my family on my mom's side plus I eat copious amounts of sugar. Hopefully it will be bad enough to where I can collect disability

No, however i thought I might be. The tests I had done showed my blood pressure was SKY HIGH, so it was quite lucky I had those tests.
