Total Pancreatectomy and Islet Cell Transplant.

Hi ,
I would love to hear if anyone else has under gone a total pancreatectomy and or an islet cell transplant ?

I had mine in June 2005 - it took 12 hours of surgery and 3 subsequent operations to date.

Becoming diabetic was a forgone conclusion of the surgery obviously and NO I was not an alcoholic as most people ( including medical professionals ) seem to think. I was born with a rare pancreatatic abnormality, so chronic pancreatitus has been a constant problem from birth.

It would be good to know if any one else has had the same or similar please. Thanks Debbie

Kosher Diet for Diabetics Gets Real Results

Hello Everyone, 

 

My name is Christopher and i have been a diabetic ever since I was 7 years old (I am 31 now).  I got diabetes from contracting the chicken pox and it attacked my pancreas.  Through the next 23 years, I have had huge issues with drastic ups and downs in my blood sugar.  There were many times I would wake up in the middle of the night in cold sweats, there were times someone would have to call the paramedics to get me out of an unresponsive state.  Doctors tried readjusting my insulin, they tried different kinds of insulin and for 23 years nothing seemed to work.

Neuropathy or Nerve damage

Nerve Damage (Neuropathy)



According to the Accuchek web site







"Neuropathy" is a broad word like "animal." It includes a wide range of subcategories that can look as different from one another as a cat and an elephant. Neuropathy, after all, simply means "nerve disease." Because nerves carry all the information about physical sensation and motor instruction between the brain and every part of the body, nerve damage can affect you from your teeth to your toes.



For one person it can mean numbness in the toes, while another person will simply feel "full" sooner than they should. That's why it's smart to have a good idea of the feelings and symptoms associated with nerve damage. Armed with the right information, you can be on guard against neuropathy and take steps to protect yourself.



What exactly is Neuropathy?

Patients with pre-diabetes are 15 times more likely to develop type II diabetes and the risk of further complications.



Am I at risk?



If you are over weight and/or your waist measurement is more than 31.5 inches for a woman or 37 inches for a man you may be at risk.



If you have raised blood pressure you may be at risk.



If you have a close relative such as a brother or sister who has type II diabetes you may be at risk



What can I do about pre-diabetes?



90% of people diagnosed with pre-diabetes are over weight and the excess fat, particularly around the waist and tummy, affects the regulation of blood sugar. Excess blood sugar leads to damage to the small blood vessels in the body.
