I have lots of questions!! Within two weeks of eachother my two brothers (alex 29, and ben 27) both started experiencing the same symptoms; excessive thirst, blurred vision, and increased urination. Alex went in first and got tested and his BS was over 400 and his A1C was 13! He was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, put on metformin and referred to a dietition. We tested Ben's BS with Alex's meter one morning and he was running in the high 300s. He felt fine and wasn't experiencing any symptoms at the time. He finally went in and his A1C was 17! He was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes and put on insulin, novolog and humalog. I just think is it so strange that they were diagnosed so closely together. In our family hx my dad's brother has diabetes (type 2), my dad's cousin has pancreatic cancer, and my dad's dad was diagnosed with diabetes and shortly after died of pancreatic cancer. I've done a little research on the relation between the two and I think my brother's should get checked for pancreatic cancer!?! It's such a scary thing! Anyone know how common it is in younger adults? I am an RN student done in july and I struggle with understanding diabetes so I want help giving alex and ben the best advice! I'm also wondering what the chances are that I might get it too?? I have never had any of the classic symptoms and last semester in clinicals we checked eachother's BS and mine was fine then so does that mean I'm ok? Any advice for me or my brothers would be greatly appreciated!! Thanks for listening!!
