I am a pre vegetarian, take low card food and have an hour of walking in the mornings. I followed the pattern of insulin regime what my cousin does, tried ?novo rapid? pre meals and ?Lantus? at bed time. Had good results and control. My HB1ac from 11.6 dropped to 9.2 in 2 months My question to experts 1. Is it safe too continue this MDI because I don?t want to continue tablets. 2. Due to ?high cost? reasons what are the substitutes that I use instead of Lantus and novorapid. 3. Heard about ?Actrapid HM? can it be substituted for ?Novorapid?

What is the difference between diabetes type one and type twoTablet tranjenta 5 mg safe hai kya
Dr. Sanjay Bhatt
Type 1 diabetes used to be known as insulin-dependent diabetes (IDDM), or juvenile-onset diabetes as it often begins in childhood. Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune condition where the immune system wrongly identifies and subsequently attacks the pancreatic cells that produce insulin, leading to little or no insulin production. Type 2 diabetes used to be known as non-insulin dependent diabetes (NIDDM) and adult onset diabetes, but it is increasingly common in children, largely due to children being more likely to be obese or overweight. In this condition, the body usually still produces some insulin, but this is not enough to meet demand and the body's cells do not properly respond to the insulin. The latter effect is called insulin resistance, where persistently elevated blood glucose has caused cells to be overexposed to insulin, making them less responsive or unresponsive to the hormonal messenger.
I have type 2 diabetes. Need to know economic alternative for Jalra 50mg. Already following germe forte 2mg. Also need alternative for ivepred.
Dr. Sanjay Bhatt
Almost all alternatives of good company are of same priceYou need to change saltDiabetes Ireland is delighted to hear of the Harvard success and congratulate Professor Melton and colleagues on figuring out the complex series of steps necessary to turn stem cells into beta cells. Hopefully, they can negotiate the regulations for mass production so that an abundant supply of beta cells is available an new and innovative methods will be developed to cure/treat Type 1 diabetes. Type I diabetes is an autoimmune condition whereby the body kills off its own beta (insulin producing) cells resulting in the need for daily insulin administration through the skin. Replacing beta cells in the first step towards a cure, but the replaced beta cells need to be protected from the body?s autoimmune response. This means protecting them in a coating or taking drugs to prevent the response (possible worse side effects than diabetes).
