I'm getting referrals for pre-op. assessement from surgeons alarmed by a diagnosis of "type 3 diabetes" Me, too. I have googled and found three different descriptions:
1/ The development of type 2 in someone who already has type 1, "double diabetes"
2/ Diabetes due to the failure of insulin secreting tissue in the brain, "brain diabetes"
3/ Diabetes due to "electropollution" - cell phones, radio waves, high tension transmission lines etc.
Even discounting the last one as a diagnosis only heard from someone who wears an oven-foil hat in bed, I'm at a loss to know what "type 3" is. Let alone if it needs any special care in the perioperative period, which I doubt.
Lighten my darkness, O oracles!
