  • From my experience of over a decade, diabetes II has many symptoms that are not in most of the literature. Digestive problems seems to be one of those and maybe she needs to be checked for neuropathy? (Chronic Diarrhea?)I guess the first thing to do is find out if the diabetes is under control. We all slack off or if under chronic stress can lose control of the illness. It is a part of being human and having a life-long illness.I have high blood pressure, fatigue, itching all over, headaches, night sweats, visual problems, balance problems, and go from hypoglycemia to hyperglycemia, but being under surmmountable stress I let my illness get out of hand and now having a hard time getting it back under control.Nonetheless, even when my diabetes is under control, I still have problems. Today's food supply is part of the problem. Processed foods are slow diabetic death. Rice, breads, and pasta need to be limited but you don't have to completely give up. Depriving yourself can be worse because then you are destined to fail.The real answer is strict contol and only we can do that for ourselves. If your Mom figures out a way to be perfect in diet, exercise and elimanating stress and our poisoned food supply... well you know what I mean.I hope your Mom finds the answer soon... ;)

Your information about your mom’s Diabetes-II is not informative. The only problem for you is she has abdominal pain.All people who have Diabetes can be exposed to all another diseases as all another people. Michellemariee give to you some empirical information’s, but you shod know there are no two people with the same problems. All depend on what DM development level your mom is.You are asking : “i also wanted to know what are some common symptoms you would experience with this certain type of diabetes.” There are many of them.Side diseases of DM can be: Periphery Neuropathia Diabetica, Autonomic Neuropathia Diabetica, Microangiopathia as Nephropathia D., Retinopathia D., and Cardiomyopathia Diabetica as CAD- Coronary Artery Diseases, Macroangiopathia as Atherosclerosis, Claudicatio Extremitens, Charcot, Dupuytrens Contracture and moreTo get DM under control, the optimal treatment is to follow the theory of Glycemic Index and the medication from your moms Physician.You can find it on www.glycemicindex.com . Sincerely yoursDon
