Regarding The Use Of Insulin For People With Type 1 Diabetes
Tonight, I am Laila, 24 years old. four months ago I was convicted of type 1 diabetes. Since then I used insulin twice a day. My condition did improve, and the doctor finally tried to stop using insulin. after two weeks of being stopped, I returned feeling unwell. frequent urination and thirst. I want to ask, can insulin use be stopped in type 1 diabetes? then, does type 1 diabetes affect the health of the reproductive organs? this week I feel itching in the female organs ,, is that one of the complications of diabetes? Please help. thank you
Thank you for the question.
Type 1 diabetes occurs when the body is less or totally unable to produce insulin, a hormone from the pancreas that is useful in controlling blood sugar levels. Impact, blood sugar levels can increase, and patients can feel frequent urination, frequent hunger, frequent thirst, frequent itching / tingling / numbness, weakness, fatigue, easy to get infections, weight loss, and much more other complaints.
Because of the mechanism of this disease, the main treatment for people with type 1 diabetes is done by giving insulin. In this way, it is hoped that blood sugar can be more controlled, and the potential for dangerous complications can be avoided. Not infrequently, the administration of insulin will be combined with the administration of other drugs.
Regarding your question, the decision to continue or stop using insulin in people with type 1 diabetes is only appropriate for a doctor or internist who checks you directly. If your pancreas is still producing insulin even though a little, it may be stopped giving insulin, provided that coupled with lifestyle modifications and eating patterns to be more healthy. However, stopping totally using insulin like this seems quite rare. So, you better check directly to the nearest doctor huh ..
As we mentioned above, uncontrolled type 1 diabetics can more easily experience itching and also infections. This condition is also what might trigger itching in your vagina. Not only that, itching in the vagina can also occur due to the influence of hormonal disorders, stress, irritation or allergies, insect bites, and many other diseases.
In order for this itch to subside, you can first improve the cleanliness of your vagina, don't scratch the itchy vagina, shorten your pubic hair (but don't pull it out), always wear clean and soft material, don't do free sex, drink plenty of water, drink water healthy, don't stress, and be disciplined to live a healthy lifestyle. If the itching does not improve, after the COVID-19 outbreak has subsided, you can consult a doctor or dermatologist right ..
I hope this helps.
