AN INTERVIEW WITH DR. JESSICA CASTLE, ENDOCRINOLOGIST AT OHSU, AND KARIS SOLOMITIS WITH JDRF, ABOUT THE TYPES OF DIABETES , RESEARCH BEING DONE TO FIND A CURE, AND THE DIABETES AWARENESS EVENT, TYPE 1 NATION.
Watson and on the show this time we're gonna learn all about diabetes . The differences between type two in type one diabetes . The complications involved look diabetes . Derosa you hear about a great diabetes information link coming up at like to welcome doctor Jessica castle endocrinologist with always just you and on the board of directors with GDR have. Also Kara solbes development coordinator with JD RF of Oregon and southwest Washington Booker to microscope. Take our credit Afghans. So for the invitation absolutely so before you started talking about slow an event that's coming very soon let's talk about diabetes specifically doctor Cassell. You know a lot about diabetes . I I went to a lot of school to learn about beating us so we get that done much can be said okay. And what is an endocrinologist first son and technologists is a physician that treats patients for grueling and in hormone diseases. And primary that patients say he C have diabetes both sons type one or type two diabetes . Type one or take two what's the what's the difference. So old type two diabetes is a more common form of diabetes . It can range from people that can treated with lifestyle changes alone so diet and exercise is. On some news individuals take oral medications and other require insulin therapy. We know that it's a disease of insulin resistance so they need more insulin to lower blood checkers. And it's related to genetics. As well as it's tied with obesity. And you have an increased risk if the or I'm not very active. Type one diabetes . In contrast is an autoimmune disease. So it means that your immune system attacks your patriots and that includes the cells that produce insulin. So you're not able to treat type one diabetes . With lifestyle changes it requires insulin for survival. We hear a lot about diabetes in general on the rise is that type one or type two or or both on the rise. There's an increase of both type one and type two diabetes but mostly what we hear about is the epidemic of obesity. And that is tied with large increase in type two diabetes . In that it did a lot of people that abuse call it adult onset Davies right but it's not only with adults. That's right so we're now seeing with childhood obesity. More tight today BD is in children but it's much more common in adults. Type one diabetes used to be called juvenile diabetes . But we now know that. It's not only diagnosed in children but also an adults as well and so it's no longer referred to as juvenile diabetes it's referred to as. Type one diabetes . I have I improved from that I was diagnosed with type one diabetes when it was 42 years old I think. Definitely not a juvenile right so what's happening with adults rates had a say in about half of people are diagnosed over the age of eighteen. Why is that why is why do you supposed on the rise. Not I think that nobody really knows and it's nobody really completely understands why some home with type one diabetes develops type one diabetes so we know that it's very much related to genetics. But what pushes somebody over the edge so that there are immune system and attacks that pay increase is not well understood so. In May be for example are related to being exposed to a virus. But no one's been able to ice latest single virus or condition that causes type one diabetes . You know when I was diagnosed nothing out of the ordinary happened in my life that triggered it that I can think of so I it's one of just one of those things it's kind of laying dormant is that correct me and maybe get a pop out any time since some scary good. They are right in that. You know people have a genetic predisposition. I am to developing type one diabetes and it's not it tells something happens and we don't again understand completely what that is but. Where they actually develop that inflammation that ends up. Destroying those insulin producing cells. Post type one diabetes treated. So attempt Monday BD's is treated with insulin. And that could be either through injections. Quarry can be used the DE can be treated through insulin pump therapy. And the idea being that you need insulin. At all times of the day and night but you need extra insulin. To cover carbohydrates they either eat or for high blood sugars. So non diabetic person produces their own insulin so they they don't need the external injections correct correct and that increases. The very intelligent Oregon.
long on the system so a lot of people with. Type one diabetes develop high blood sugars after meals and then may develop a low blood sugar. And before their next meal it's kind of a delicate balancing act. It is. Terrorists it is definitely announcing act you can relate to this. Yes as a person let's take plan. Had diabetes for take my navies for almost nine years now and it's it's kind of like playing catch up. When you're doing. Injections are using an insulin pump with meals here always trying to catch that high Fletcher that you're gonna get from having Mac meal. So. It's something that's on your mind and kind of 24 sevenths right definitely and it's something that even as we're sitting here having this conversation about diabetes . Constantly aware of what is my body telling me. Am I going hi in my going alone you know how is the situation affecting my Pletcher has anything can affect. It's amazing to stress food. The excitement. Sickness after so many factors that that go into. Make you look her up or go down and we'll crazy. Doctor Kessel what kind of changes have you seen over the years and and that have made diabetes easier to live with. So there have been a lot of major dances so we now have insulin analog X. I'm meaning
So it's a little wire. That sensor inserted by the person with diabetes . It's a few times thicker than a human hair in stays in place for six to seven days. And it measures your
