Back to Ask the Diabetes Team Diagnosis and Symptoms - 2013

Diagnosis and Symptoms from 2013

  1. Is my low testosterone level the reason I have been diagnosed with type 2? (31 Dec 2013)
  2. My daughter has had chronic diarrhea for a couple of years. We stopped dairy and gluten. She had an A1c of 6.4, borderline glucose readings. What do you think this could be? (23 Dec 2013)
  3. I am taking an online UCSF course about diabetes, but I find parts of the texts too advanced. Can you explain the results of my son's antibodies tests? (12 Nov 2013)
  4. My son was diagnosed with type 1 three years ago, but his chart, which I see at his check-ups, says he has type 1.5. What is that? (22 Oct 2013)
  5. My toddler was diagnosed on Monday. The doctors are not sure what to do, have given him some insulin. They want to discharge us today. Should I ask for a referral to a pediatric endocrinologist? (11 Oct 2013)
  6. Do you have type 1 if you test positive for all three antibodies? Can you test positive for antibodies later because you have been on exogenous insulin? (18 Sep 2013)
  7. I have diabetes and am worried my children will get it. So, I checked my son's blood sugar when he was acting "off." It was actually low. How concerned should I be? (28 Aug 2013)
  8. I have just been diagnosed with diabetes. Both my parents and older brother have type 2. Is it hereditary? Is it curable? (4 Jun 2013)
  9. I am a school nurse with a newly diagnosed teen patient who has fluid retention in many parts of her body, caused by insulin per her doctors. I have never heard of this. Could there be something else going on? (30 Apr 2013)
  10. Is there any link between hypoglycemia and undiagnosed type 1 diabetes? (8 Apr 2013)
  11. When sick, my teen daughter has symptoms of diabetes. She has tested positive for two of the antibodies, but has not been diagnosed with it. Do I need to be concerned? (19 Mar 2013)
