Is There Different Types Of Type 2 Diabetes?

Is There Different Types Of Type 2 Diabetes?

We tend to lump things together.

At first there was just Juvenile Diabetes or Sugar Diabetes.

Then (they) renamed them to Type 1 and Type 2.

About 20 years ago the terms Type 1.5 (which later was renamed LADA) and Type 3 (Diabetes with Diabetes Dementia - but that term is still not fully accepted yet) were added.

But is Type 2 simply Type 2?

The answer is NO. Not all Type 2's are the same and we can be "sub-grouped".

Here is the recognized "sub-types" of Type 2:

How Do You Assess Your Level Of Treatment

How Do You Assess Your Level Of Treatment

There are lots of ways to reach an a1c. Some methods leave wide swings. Some leave very little margin for error. Some involve one medication. Some involve many. So which is right for you and how will you decide? I've been mulling this over for a while. With my old doctor, I was on more frequent insulin but needed to walk 5 miles a day to get anywhere a good number at all, and still spiked into the 380s every day. This new endo has switched my medication and I take "more," but my numbers have… read more

Essentially the same drug as Ozempic that is advertised everywhere.

When you eat a hormone is produced that tells your pancreas that it needs to send out some insulin AND tells the brain "I'm getting… read more

Trulicity Injection.

Trulicity Injection.

Hello friends,
I have been given a new diabetes medication to prevent myself from injecting insulin. It is Trulicity and must be used with 1 injection a week with a special disposable tip.
If anyone has your experience with Trulicity, I would like to hear that.
Thanks in advance for your comments.

How The Heck Does The Doctor Decide What To Prescribe For Diabetics?

How The Heck Does The Doctor Decide What To Prescribe For Diabetics?

Some may see the Doctor as some all knowing Oracle that uses a crystal ball to decide what prescriptions to write to treat our Type 2 diabetes.

The truth is, unless your diabetes doesn't follow the "rules" and you need the help of an Endocrinologist, they use a "flow chart" that most highschool kids could follow well enough to write the scripts.

Primary/Family Doc's don't even need to know how to spell Diabetes in order to treat it because the worlds leading experts have "written the rules"… read more
