Complications from 2007

  1. Are there any studies into type 1 diabetes, pregnancy and rapidly advancing retinopathy? (8 Dec 2007)
  2. I've had type 1 for 17 years and have always had control problems. Is the tingling in my hands and feet reversible? Am I a good candidate for a transplant? (29 Nov 2007)
  3. For the past six months, my young son has exhibited what appear to be signs of gastroparesis. Do you have any ideas about what his stomach issue could be? (27 Nov 2007)
  4. I've read that if nephropathy has not started 10 to 15 years after diagnosis, you may not get it at all. My son has had excellent control for two years. Is he still at risk for it? (23 Oct 2007)
  5. My eight-year-old has had diabetes for five years. A gastric empyting study showed she was gastroparesis. Is there any chance of misdiagnosis? (19 Oct 2007)
  6. My boyfriend is so needlephobic, he often doesn't give himself insulin. His mood changes and he suffers physically. He's considering a pump. Is there one that uses NovoLog? (16 Aug 2007)
  7. I have been on an ACE inhibitor due to microalbuminuria. My A1c has come down, but my microalbumin level has gone up a bit. What does this mean? (24 Jul 2007)
  8. Due to elevated microalbumin levels, I started taking Diovan. I now have a constant, dull stomach pain. Could this be a side effect of the Diovan? (20 Jul 2007)
  9. My teen son has had protein in his urine, just eight years after his diagnosis with type 1. Is this complication a normal occurrence even with control of his diabetes? (8 Jul 2007)
  10. Gastroparesis is causing me digestive difficulties and blood sugar excursions. Recently, my BUN was low. Is this because of my digestive difficulties? (31 May 2007)
  11. My eight-year-old has been diagnosed with neuropathy. Is this possible? What will happen to her in the future? How can we prevent future damage? (25 May 2007)
  12. My A1c was 5.2, but my averages are much higher. If I have a "falsely" low A1c and am having highs, would these highs not do any damage because of the low blood count and low A1c? (25 May 2007)
  13. My stomach is displaced from earlier Roux-en-Y surgery. Since December, I've had constant pain under my right lower rib. Is this gastroparesis? (14 May 2007)
  14. Diagnosed with type 2 six months ago, my daughter had an elevated microalbumin level. Is this normal for someone so newly diagnosed? (8 May 2007)
  15. I've had type 2 for three years. After my recent tests, my doctor recommended an ACE inhibitor. What stage kidney disease do I have? (20 Apr 2007)
  16. Does diet have anything to do with foot problems later in life and blood flow to the feet? (21 Mar 2007)
  17. After 15 years with diabetes, I have some tingling in my feet. Is this reversible with better control and exercise? (6 Feb 2007)
  18. My daughter has been on lisinopril for two years due to elevated microalbumin levels. Based on her current results, will she progress to end-stage renal disease at some point? (5 Feb 2007)
  19. I have Charcot and need surgery on my foot, but the foot doctor is not helping me get to the point where I can have the procedure. What should I do? (29 Jan 2007)
  20. After 23 years with type 1, I have no complications. Should I still worry because I was diagnosed well before puberty? Do people with type 1 still produce insulin? (28 Jan 2007)
  21. Does a person still develop complications even if he takes insulin, eats well, exercises, etc.? Approximately how long after diagnosis does one develop complications? (23 Jan 2007)
  22. I've had diabetes for 19 years and have joint pain in two of my fingers. Could this be a complication of diabetes or is it more likely to be something unrelated? (22 Jan 2007)
  23. What is the life expectancy of a person with type 1 diabetes? I'm 37 and have had type 1 for 27 years. I have retinopathy and neuropathy. (22 Jan 2007)
