My cousin is an insulin dependent diabetic & she had a very rough pregnany & the baby was premature. He had to have a few surgeries after birth also. But now he is a healthy 16 month old baby. She on the other hand now has liver & stomach cancer. Any prayers is much needed. They only gave her 6 months.

What is the difference between a Type-1 diabetic and an insulin-dependent diabetic?

Type-1 diabetics are generally insulin-dependent, but not all insulin-dependent diabetics are type-1. Type-1 refers to how the patient contracted diabetes -- by having their pancreatic beta cells stop producing insulin, usually due to an autoimmune disorder. Type-2 diabetics became diabetic through a combination of genetic and lifestyle problems that reduced insulin production and/or increased insulin resistance. Type-2 diabetics usually begin treatment with diet changes and oral medications that increase insulin production or reduce resistance, rather than taking injections of actual insulin. But a Type-2 diabetic may become insulin-dependent over time, if treatment isn't effective. The high blood sugar can attack the pancreas (through oxidative stress and amyloidosis), reducing insulin production until even oral medications are no longer adequate.

Why insulin give to diabetic patient?

Insulin is typically given to a diabetic because their pancreas has stopped working. A normal person's pancreas creates insulin and breaks down the sugars in the food you eat. Since a diabetic no longer has a working pancreas, insulin is given in place of the insulin they no longer have.

Why would a diabetic person be required totake insulin shot?

A diabetic needs to take insulin shots because their pancreas no longer produces the necessary amount or doesn't produce any insulin.

If you inject a diabetic shot by mistake would you be diabetic?

You do not become diabetic by injecting yourself with insulin; your body naturally produces insulin. You become diabetic when your pancreas stops working well (or stops working at all.) However, you could lapse into a coma and die if there is too much insulin in your body. Do NOT inject insulin into yourself or anyone else unless told by a doctor to do so.

What is the difference between insulin dependent diabetes and non insulin dependent diabetes?

Type 1 diabetics cannot produce their own insulin so depend on insulin shots, thus they have insulin dependent diabetes. Type 2 diabetes is often referred to as non insulin dependent diabetes (NIDDM) due to the fact that in a lot of cases it can be dealt with without the need for regular insulin injections.
