Common Questions and Answers about Diabetes diet ii plan type


Avatar f tn fats, etc. Do you have Type II diabetes? What medication are you on? The time(s) for taking them can vary depending the medications and how many times/day you have to take them...
86664 tn?1291561395 I too was diagnosed with Type II diabetes a few years after finishing treatment. I just completed my 2nd go round, and while on treatment, my sugar was absolutely normal. Doc took me of of the amaryl I was on. So I am on my 2nd week off treatment, and we will see what happens. I lost over 100 lbs while on treatment and plan to keep that off.. Thats what I gained after treatment last time. I am pretty much normal of where I should be.
Avatar f tn F-48, overweight most of my and developed Type II Diabetes in 1999. That same year an internist noted that I had "fatty liver". Last year, I came down with incredible pain, lost my appetite completely, had nausea and absolutely no energy. In July of 2008, my gastroenterologist did a test for gastroparesis and the test came back negative.
Avatar m tn Always make sure thyroid levels are adequate before starting on any diet. Since you have type II diabetes in your family, opt for low glycemic foods; those are the ones that will not raise blood sugar quickly, and include lean protein, whole grains, low/no fat dairy, "good" fats, etc.
3060903 tn?1398568723 My father threw himself out of his sick bed at the hospital and refused to do any further dialysis, that became onset because of his Diabetes Type II. How many people are dying because they don't have the right information about this disease ? PLEASE be good to yourself and consider getting this download, or pick up a copy at the book store, maybe even the library. You will thank me for it, I know this for certain. My new life plan starts NOW. I'm starting at 220.
1306788 tn?1334756251 I had GD in my last pregnancy and have it again with this one. Once you have it, the chances of getting it again in subsequent pregnancies is high as is your chance of developing Type II diabetes in the future (10-15 years). From what I"ve been told, so long as your blood sugars are well managed, the baby shouldn't grow too big. They do, however, like to induce you early just to make sure it's not too big in which case you'll need a c-section for the safety of the baby.
327385 tn?1378364331 You might be better served by a neurologist since your problem is located in your brain/pituitary and you've had brain surgery. Most endocrinologists deal with Type I or Type II diabetes (not DI), few deal with thyroid conditions and still very, very few deal with pituitary conditions. You are *not* obese - you have dealt with brain tumor, brain surgery, and now DI. Get rid of that idiot endocrinologist (Someone needs to slap that endo around - Chicken Club unite!
Avatar m tn Megazoid, Are you referring to Dr. Crisler? If so, I plan to see him pending the results from the MRI I am having tomorrow. 7 months ago there was a pituitary micro adenoma found measuring 5.0 X 8.0 CM. This is a follow up to see if it has grown. Since last I talked to you, I severely crashed after trying my liquid-nolvadex run for a week, which resulted in a rock bottom depression and suicide attempt. I don't want to elict responses of how bad it is to do that...
Avatar n tn I had to have a physical from my own doctor who had to sign some paper work from GHI and I had to have a blood test as specified from GHI Medical. I followed the 500 calorie diet religiously. I had plenty of energy to exercise which I did 5 - 6 aerobic work outs and 3 weight training work outs. I am a personal trainer and I was having an extremely frustrating time loosing weight after the birth of my 3rd child. Yes, I washed my hair and conditioned it.
480448 tn?1426952138 Great points! And you're right, unlike Type I most times, prevention is the key for Type II Diabetes. I think it would be helpful for us to maybe start a thread dedicated to discussing diet, nutrition. We could even post recipes that people have found to be yummy!
Avatar n tn Hi, My oldest son (aged 8)has type II, I'm very worried obout my younger sone (aged 4), is there any literature out there suggesting a way that diabetes can be prevented?
Avatar m tn Hi, my dad was diagnosed with type II diabetes at a pretty young age (mid 30s I believe). I try to eat healthy but acknowledge that my meal plan may be a bit too sweet, so I wanted to run it past you to see if I'm putting myself in extreme risk. =========== I follow a fairly routine meal plan: Morning, 2 fresh pre-packaged meals: each contain one scoop of white rice, an fried egg, and a little bag of chicken (not much).
649848 tn?1534637300 In 2008, I got a blood test that showed I was borderline diabetic. (My mother and father both have Type II diabetes, so that's a ticking time bomb for me and all my siblings.) I also had elevated LDL cholesterol and low HDL cholesterol. The numbers were slight, but I wanted to improve them. I started working on eating better and exercising better. As a result, I managed to get a clean bill of health a year later. LDL/HDL numbers have flip-flopped.
325405 tn?1262293778 I was normal weight a little over 2 years ago before getting pregnant and got gestational diabetes and gained 90 pounds while pregnant. That turned in to type II diabetes after I delivered, and I feel like I'm stuck at too high of a weight right now (just over 200 pounds at 5'5"). I have taken a little off since being on metformin, about 5 pounds in 6 weeks. Is it just going to take a while? Can my doctor recommend a weight loss medication since I have diabetes?
Avatar f tn I read recently that not only weight loss but weight gain can be a potential symptom for diabetes type II. I have some hairs from a scar I have to pluck since a dermatologist left the root of a mole behind, just shaving the surface of it. He left the wound with hairs sticking out of it, I suppose so I wouldn't have as big of scar. I know that hurts!
Avatar f tn I actually cleared diabetes while on tx , I developed Type II diabetes a few years after doing tx the 1st time. Gained alot of weight. 14 years later, treated again ( just finished up on thanksgiving) And now , no longer have diabetes. And just got my 3 month post results. Undetected..
Avatar f tn since these things not only contribute to our weight issues, they can make us more susceptible to type II diabetes, heart and/or liver problems, etc. Dairy is an excellent part of a good weight loss plan, so if you aren't allergic or intolerant, I'd suggest going to the low/no fat varieties of milk, cheese, yogurt, etc. And let's not forget that exercise is a major part of our weight loss journey, so speaking of that -- I'd best go get started with my exercise.
Avatar n tn In the orient and middle east, this cure for type II diabetes, has been known for hundreds of years. Our health care situation does not need a band-aid like socializing it. It needs a morality check. We need to learn the best from each culture. Doctors making a commission from the sales of the drugs they prescribe does not seem ethical. It makes sense that they would prescribe the most expensive and perhaps even give prescriptions when the are not necessary if they want to make more money.
325405 tn?1262293778 My doctor told me I've had problems losing weight the last couple years (haven't lost any really) because of PCOS (something about polycystic ovarian something or other) and because of my diabetes and insulin resistance. I can't take stuff that would speed up my metabolism or diet pills because I also have an autoimmune disease (mixed connective tissue disorder) and the doctor is afraid it might mess up my thyroid function or something so won't prescribe any weight loss medication.
Avatar f tn This is related to insulin resistance/pre-diabetes and if left untreated can become full blown type II diabetes. Insulin resistance is also related to a condition called Metabolic Syndrome, which is a cluster of conditions, including high blood pressure, high cholesterol, high trigylcerides, high blood sugar, obesity (excess fat around the middle). The components of Metabolic Syndrome are often present with hypothyroidism.
390645 tn?1233372037 I understand your being scared, jesima, but the key is information. I was a bit confused by your post as to whether you have gestational diabetes or Type II because you say "I am planning to have a baby soon" so not sure if you are pregnant or just thinking about it. The fact that you got tested almost by accident is a good thing because then you can do something about it if you have diabetes! Diabetes is a sneaky disease that often doesn't have symptoms until it is fairly advanced.

In pre-diabetes, blood glucose levels are higher than normal but not high enough to be characterized as diabetes. However, many people with pre-diabetes develop type 2 diabetes within 10 years. Pre-diabetes also increases the risk of heart disease and stroke.
Avatar m tn Any suggestions on better or not so better meds to treat beginning stage of type 2 diabetes? There appears to be many. All have different side effects, etc... I think my exercise and diet plan has held me off meds so far, but later showing higher glucose levels AM (>150) etc...
Avatar f tn Hi, I have Dercum's Disease as well, but mine is type II I think it is. The type where you have diffuse mutated Dercums fat cells with the occasional lipoma. I've spoken at great length with the two doctors in Sweden who performed the most recent study and together we set up an information website. If you'd be interested in checking it out, it's at www.DercumsDisease.com.
Avatar n tn her blood glucose numbers and other factors, it would be hard to determine whether or not the doctor made the best choice by putting her on medication. Type II diabetes can be treated with diet and excercise but that's not always the case. It may be that your daughter-in-law's physician put her on medication (pills, I assume) to help her bring down her sugar at these early stages. She might be able to control her diabetes with diet and excercise later on.
Avatar f tn Type I diabetes requires medication, such as insulin shots; while type II diabetes can often be controlled with diet and exercise. Maybe you could give us an idea of what your typical diet and exercise are, and we could help come up with simple changes that help get you started. We also have a new weight loss challenge that just started yesterday, if you'd care to join us, just sign up on the Challenge post, set a small goal and come along for the ride.
Avatar f tn Type II diabetes is exactly the opposite of Type I. Too much insulin, the cells can't handle it and become resistant. They become unable to absorb the glucose they need and suffer early degeneration. I'm expecting similar news any time now. In a 6 month binge of self-pity I indulged in every forbidden treat I wanted - the whole ice cream saga - and gained 30 pounds. Now with the steroids, I expect, to see some problems.
Avatar n tn Yes, bariatric surgery caused my type II diabetes to be controlled with diet alone.
