When I first found out I had CFRD i was in the hospital because I had gotten another lung infection. At a previous visit they had tested my A1c level, and it was abnormaly high. So they thought it was either CFRD or i was experiencing high blood sugars because of my health at the time. Throughout the next year they kept checking my A1c, and eventually check my blood sugars pre and post meal to see if i had CFRD. It really made me angry that i had another disease to deal with, so i kinda didnt take care of it for a while, and i eventually ended up in the hospital again. They taught me all the ins and outs of CFRD, and I wasnt so scared of it any more. If not taken care of, CFRD will most likely land you back in the hospital every time because bacteria multiply better when there is a high glucose level.

For me I take both Humolog and Lantus, The Humalog to take care of meals, and the Lantus every night. (It is a long term insulin to make things easier throughout the day) Both of my insulins are in a disposable pen, so i just carry them in my pocket along with some needles made for the pens. Once I am done with both of them I can just toss them. They dont really effect me as much as I had imagined, I just have to cound how many carbs I take in, and calculate the ammount of insuline I need to take. Its really not that hard to do either of these.

There is no cure for CFRD so far. I would think if your doctor sees a trend of exaserbations, he will have a A1c blood test done, to calculate your glucose average level over the last few months. If it is high your doctor will probably ask you to monitor your blood sugar levels for a while in order to determine whether or not you have CFRD. I have heard of people with a mild case of it just taking pills to control the symptoms, but i dont know all that much about it?

Hopefuly I was helpful!

1.) Not too much. Just have to inject myself with needles before I eat and before I go to bed now. Nothing compared to the time required for CF treatments. I'm actually kind of happy since they found it. I've gained nearly 20 pounds (all the weight I lost, and I'm still gaining)
2.) I use Lantus at night (long lasting) and Novorapid before meals. Have to test my blood sugars daily... (I do it around 6-7 times a day)
3.) Pancreas transplant maybe?
4.) I lost weight and started to get really thirsty. Like unquenchable thirst. Went in for a glucose tolerance test, and they found out mine were high.

1. It seemed to play a role in excerbations and how quickly I could recover

2. I get treated by an endocrinologist that is familiar w/ cfrd-in the past month, i have started on an insulin pump. prior to that, i took humalog (fast acting insulin) and lantus (long acting insulin). the insulin pump has made staying on top of things really easy-i don't have to do 4-6 shots a day-just change out an infusion set every 3 days

3. no known cure/but definitely treatments that are accessible

4. annual cf tests watch A1C raised questions and then we did the glucose tolerance test. I was able to control it w/ oral meds for a couple of years and then it has been in the past two years that I have had to switch to insulin.

CFRD is a unique animal when talking about diabetes. It is kind of a combination of type 1 and 2. Our bodies can't use the insulin we do produce correctly and often when we get sick it becomes more resistant to insulin.

I just got diagnosed a couple of months ago.

Affect my life-- I check my sugars before meals and occasionally after meals. I have to eat a very balanced diet (watch my sugar intake). Once in a while my sugars run high and I have to give myself a couple units of insulin. I count my carbs and make sure I get enough calories in each day.

My doctors found out about my CFRD at one of my appointments. I was having trouble with low sugars and then during my tune up I had super high sugars. Miserable feeling.

1) How does it effect your life?
2) what do you talk or do for it?
3) This is a stupid question I know but is there any known
cures?
4) How do you know you haver it/ what conditions do you get?


1. Shots with meals...not too bad

2. Take my insulin?

3. Not that I know of...

4. Well my symptoms were EXTREME thirst...the most thirsty I could have imagined... that was the main one. I don't remember much else

<br />2) what do you talk or do for it?
<br />3) This is a stupid question I know but is there any known
<br />cures?
<br />4) How do you know you haver it/ what conditions do you get?
<br />
<br />
<br />1. Shots with meals...not too bad
<br />
<br />2. Take my insulin?
<br />
<br />3. Not that I know of...
<br />
<br />4. Well my symptoms were EXTREME thirst...the most thirsty I could have imagined... that was the main one. I don't remember much else

I was just diagnosed this week. I guess my numbers are borderline and its partly steriod induced.

I check my blood sugar before each meals and before bed time. I was getting insulin shots, but they actually started me on a pill (metformin sp?) yesterday and it helped keep my blood sugar normal all day and I didn't need any insulin.

So far its honestly been no big deal. I asked about diet changes and I was told that they don't treat CFRD with diet changes, but I have cut out certain things on my own, mostly soda.**

I have NO symptoms when my blood sugar is high. It was 385 the other day and I felt just fine.

**I'm editing to retract this statement. I met with a dietician and diabetes nurse educator today and there ARE diet restrictions...Im so upset about it...so we will see how that goes.

I also have no symptoms while having a high blood sugar. But if i dont take care of my high blood sugars for long enough, like a few days to a week I usually get pretty sick from all the bacteria building up.
