How type 2 diabetes is different from type 1 diabetes?

Endocrinologist,
How type 2 diabetes is different from type 1 diabetes?
T1 diabetes usually occurs in young age group. It is an autoimmune disorder, where anti bodies against beta cells of pancreas are produced affecting their function and insulin production is almost totally stopped. This can only be treated by insulin injection. No oral drugs work. T2 is usually occurs in comparatively older age group. Now a days seen even in teen age and young adults. Occurs because there is lack of insulin secretion or resistance to the action of insulin or both. Reasons for t2dm are said to be over weight, apple shaped body in men and pear shaped in women, lack of physical activity, family history of diabetes, migration to bigger cities, to metros etc. This is a preventable disease. Can be controlled by oral anti diabetic drugs as well as insulin.

Dear lybrate user, one of the major nutritional substance required for human body is carbohydrate. We take carbohydrate in the form of rice, wheat, sugar etc. The complex molecules of carbohydrate are broken down into simple glucose molecules during digestion & released in the blood stream to be absorbed by the muscle cells. Muscle cells utilise the glucose molecules to release energy by breaking down those glucose molecules. Insulin hormone plays a vital role in the absorption of the glucose molecules by the muscle cells. In abnormal conditions, either due to less production of insulin or due to resistance to insulin, the process of absorption of glucose by the muscles comes to a stand still. The glucose molecules remains in the bloodstream which results in the increase in the blood sugar level. The failure of utilisation of the glucose molecules by the muscle cells results in production of less energy than normal condition. This is externally manifested as the fatigue & tiredness of the patient. This excess amount of blood sugar compels the kidney to function more than normal level in order to excrete the blood sugar molecules through urine. As a result the patient suffers from frequent urination. This abnormal condition is clinically known as diabetes mellitus. Once a patient is diagnosed with diabetes he has to take regular medicine to keep his blood sugar level within normal limits. However, the patient does not need to take medicine unless his/her post. Prandial blood sugar level reaches 200. If post. Prandial blood sugar level reaches 200 then patient can take homoeopathic mother tincture gymnema sylvestra q, 30 drops, thrice daily, after meals, in a cup of water. Along with intake of medicines the patient need to walk at least 1 hour daily without any interval. In order to decrease the intake of carbohydrate in diet the patient should avoid rice, sweet dishes, fruits, cold drinks, fast foods, alcoholic beverages, potato etc.

The thyroid readings are normal, there is no need for any medication. Her thyroid function is normal. About blood sugar after food sugar level is normal, but fasting is high, (fasting glucose intolerance), which is also labeled as prediabetes. No medicine required. But there is a need to exercise regularly for about an hour a day, take a diet that gives exact calories based on ideal body weight (51 kgs). Consume good deal of green leafy vegetables and fruits. Avoid too much of sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries, sweetened aerated drinks and high fat milk products. That should help in keeping diabetes away for a few years.

For diabetes follow a diet low in carbohydrate, low in fat and high in fibre. Walking for 30 mins a day for at least 5 days in a week is recommended. Medicine will depend upon sugar level.

Simmyji,First thing is what type of diabetes is having T1 or T2? If it is T1 then only treatment is taking Insulin injections. If T2 then looking at his glucose levels one can think of adjusting the drug treatment. But usually insulin is given for improperly controlled diabetes and also for those who have very high sugar levels or have HBA1c% more than 8 to 9 %.

Dear lybrate user, I hope your sugar control is fine. Hence, in view if this, the following would be useful for you this summer: - try having sufficient water - yes, please do exercise, as your weight is on the higher side, for at least 1 hour (brisk walking with proper walking shoes in the morning or evening, or cycling). Also, try to incorporate 20-30 mins everyday of strength training under a qualified trainer, as this has shown to reduce insulin resistance (ie improve your sugar control). - try not eating very sugary fruits like grapes, chikoo, mangoes (this you may have half a small bowl everyday). You may eat in limited quantity- oranges, guava, sweet lime, papaya, half a banana. You may have coconut water if you are feeling drained on a hot afternoon. - your diet for summer should include more fluids and fibre and less of cold, chilled, processed foods (even if they are sugar-free as these tend to contain fats or too much sodium- which will leave you more thirsty). - avoid going out in the day time, and always carry some sweet with yourself whenever you step out of the house. - though you would get tempted to weat open shoes in the summer, do ensure you take care of your feet and carefully wash your feet properly once you are back home. Ensure there are no wounds, cuts on your feet. - your daily meal would follow the same precautions you normally observe in your diet.
