Hao edited the following:Is diabetes insipidus hereditary ?I have recently found out that my Daughters father (i do not have contact with him)has been diagnosed with diabetes insipidus…. I just wondered if this is hereditary and if i should be worried about my daughter having the same condition?Helpful answer below
-micksmixxxIt really depends on the type of diabetes insipidus that your daughter’s father has been diagnosed with, my friend.if your ex-partner is diagnosed with nephrogenic diabetes insipidus, then this CAN carry a genetic component. You’d really need to speak with your doctor as to the risks involved … and what symptoms you should be looking out for. (I’m sure you’re already aware that that excessive urination, as well as excessive fluid intake, are the two most common symptoms that you should be keeping an eye open for.)I do hope that your daughter is clear of any symptoms, and I wish you both well.
-Dr.dhananjaya BhupathiEven though it may or may not be hereditary. the offspring can prevent with awareness of symptoms. Prevention is better with low calorie diet, sufficient exercise and tension-free attitude.Real symptoms of Diabetes are:•Sudden loss of weight,Severe pain in calf muscles [below knee joints], reeling sensation after heavy lunch/dinner, unhealed wounds/injuries/gum infections, excessive thirst/hunger, excessive urination, blurred vision and above all tensions add to the chief symptoms of diabetes. but, don’t worry. see a doctor at once.

Gestational diabetes is fully treatable but requires careful medical supervision throughout the pregnancy. It may improve or disappear after delivery. About 20%–50% of affected women develop type 2 diabetes There are 2 tests for Gestational Diabetes. A one hour fasting glucose test and a 3 hour test. in both cases, you drink a special drink that is very high in glucose (sugar) on an empty stomach and they test to see how your body handles the sugar. if they said you had slightly high sugar, you probably did the one hour test. To double check, they are bringing you in for the 3 hour test. Make sure you have totally fasted…no food or drink other than water for 8 hours before the test. Eating before the test will effect your sugar numbers after the test. After you drink the drink…go for a walk…move around, don’t just sit or lay down. Moving and exercise lowers blood sugar.if you do get diagnosed with Gestational Diabetes, it is a real concern. One thing to remember is, you will not have diabetes when you have the baby. Giving birth cures Gestational Diabetes. Doctors do not know what causes it during pregnancy and there is no real way to fix it if it happens. you should eat a whole food diet, stay away from processed foods, foods with additives (diet cokes, fast food…) and eat high protein. (try to get 100grams a day). Gestational Diabetes can cause the baby to grow large and cause complications toward the end of pregnancy. Symptoms to look for are – Sudden extreme swelling of the feet, hands and face (not normal swelling…sudden and extreme), pain under the ribs on the left side of your body. if that happens, call the doc right away.The doc will work with you, rest and diet to help manage the diabetes to get you as far along in the pregnancy as possible. you CAN carry full term with hard work. However, if your sugar numbers continue to rise and go out of control along with getting the symptoms above, they will have to induce labor or send you for a c-section around 36-38 weeks. if is fairly common and can be managed. Read up on it and talk with your doctor. How blood glucose is measuredIn home testing, blood glucose levels are usually measured in terms of how many millimoles of glucose there is in a litre of blood. A millimole is a measurement that is used to define the concentration of glucose in your blood. The measurement is expressed as millimoles per litre, or mmol/l, for short. Blood glucose levels vary from person to person and the amount of glucose in your blood will also change throughout the day. Therefore, there is no such thing as an ‘ideal’ blood glucose level. However, a normal blood glucose level is between 4.0-6.0 mmol/l before meals (preprandial), and less than 10.0 mmol/l two hours after meals
-Jaron FoxType 1 Diabetes is a disease that is also called Juvenile Onset diabetes. This type of diabetes is subtle and generally strikes younger people. The other type of diabetes is type 2 or adult onset diabetes and is very symptomatic. A person’s lifestyle choices and environment can even help in predicting the onset of type 2 diabetes. but it is still wise to watch for some of the major symptoms of this disease. doing so will prevent this disease from taking hold unnoticed. in this answer we will talk about some of the major diabetes symptoms.People who are suffering from diabetes get more infections than other people. your immune system may be compromised by undiagnosed diabetes which is what makes you more prone to infection. Urinary tract, kidney, skin and fungal infection caused by bacteria are among the most common causes of these outbreaks in diabetics. These infections can be a good reason to have your physcian test your pancreatic functions when diagnosing them to see what your blood sugar levels are doing. does your vision periodically go blurry without warning or predictability? if this is a symptom of someone you know, you won’t see it but they might say something about it. if this is something that happens to you it is usually a sign that your body is having difficulty with insulin and you should be tested for diabetes. have you ever heard of the term Hyperosmolar hyperglycemia nonketotic syndrome, it’s just the medical term for diabetes. This happens when the fluid in the tissue surrounding the lenses of your eyes is drained. It makes your eyes work harder to focus. sometimes blurry vision is a sign that you need glasses. on the other hand if it is only from time to time or intermittently you should talk to your doctor about diabetes testing.Feet problems are a common problem for most diabetics. Poor circulation is usually the reason for these problems. if you notice that your feet (and/or hands) have started tingling you should call your doctor. It is especially important for diabetics to monitor their hands and feet because of their circulation issues. if you notice sores that are not healing on your feet you should see your doctor as soon as possible. usually these can be treated right in a doctor’s office. Do not ignore any tingling or sores. Ignoring this particular symptom is why so many people with diabetes end up having to go through amputations. Diabetes symptoms are varied but they can be intense. The most obvious symptoms (the lack of insulin production) are hard to detect without extensive medical testing. Different indicators are quite visible. at the same time, many of the obvious symptoms of diabetes are also obvious symptoms of other problems and disorders. It is critical for you to observe your body (and the bodies of your loved ones). you don’t want your sickness to have the wrong diagnosis. Get a second opinion if you are worried your own physician may have misdiagnosed your or your kids.
