Avatar f tn I looked up your profile and don't see your weight but I noticed weight management and weight reduction surgery among your interests. Usually, when extra weight is a factor, the reason for type 2 diabetes is high levels of free fatty acids and triglycerides in the blood (they interfere with glucose absorption in muscle cells). The only sure way to lower the levels of fatty acids and triglycerides in the blood is to get rid of excess body fat.
Avatar m tn i was diagnosed Diabetes type 2 in december 2010..I want to know that if someone is diabetic,how much he will live ???
Avatar n tn Eat mostly fruit and vegetables, but have not lost weight. Any suggestions for losing weight from other Type 2 diabetics out there? Any diet plans that would be good? I am at least 100 pounds overweight, but have been told I can not have weight loss surgery because I have an illeostomy. I am in my early 40's.

Avatar f tn I just realized that I haven't seen my diabetes specialist in about three years. On my last visit she "discharged" me to the care of my internist. I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes about 5 years ago, at age 62. My glucose levels are stable at around 110, hB!ac 5.9. I've recently lost 25 kg, do some mild exercise and feel good. I'm taking metformin twice a day (750 mg).

Avatar f tn Comfortable shoes are important especially if she walks a lot, because exercise is very good for type 2 diabetes, as is weight loss if she is overweight. As for tests or exams. All diabetics should get a dilated eye exam, once a year, as high blood sugars can lead to eye damage. Also her doctor should look at her feet because if she develops neuropathy she might lose feeling in her feet and not know if she has a sore which could be dangerous.

Avatar m tn My nephew got type 2 diabetes which got diagnosed when he was admitted to hospital last week. He is 25 years and obese BMI is 29, overweight. He was not active and was lazy so far, he is asking everyone that how long he will be alive ;). Wanted to check if anyone has idea how long one can live by regular exercise and diet without medication? His sugar level with fasting is 129. PPBS is 130. Please let me know if anyone of you have got diabetes when you were 20's and controlling with diet.
Avatar m tn I was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes in 2007, and have just been diagnosed with MS. How does having both conditions affect life expectancy?
Avatar n tn Potential complications from both diseasees are the same, so the research into finding cures for TYpe 1 and its complications also benefits folks with Type 2. The American Diabetes Assocation has lots of information specific to Type 2. This website explains a bit about the genetics component: http://www.diabetes.org/genetics.jsp Regardless of the genetic pre-disposition to diabetes, one of the most effective ways to slow or prevent its onset is to be diligent about lifestyle choices.
Tbd Besides being overweight which is the most common reason, there's a lot of other reasons that may cause diabetes type 2. Another thing is age, the older you get, the chance are bigger you can get diabetes. I know it's already written, but I'll write it again, if you want to prevent it you should, of course, pay attention to nutrition and your eating habits in general.

Avatar m tn The only treatment for type 2 diabetes is weight loss, lowering carbs in your diet, exercise and medication as prescribed by a REAL doctor.
Avatar m tn I have recently diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, my fasting blood sugar was 175. I am sure that these are on the higher side of the scale. My doctor adviced me to go retest after 2 weeks of exercise and strict diet control. Hence i completely changed my diet, no sugar, substantial decrease of carbs, relying on vegetables and sprouts or protein contents with additon to the 5-6 KM of walking. After two weeks when i went on re test, it was 140 on fasting. I have not used any medicine.
8369322 tn?1397830269 Keep it simple. Cure for type 2 diabetes is Eat less, exercise more. Watch the scale and eat healthy whole foods.
Avatar n tn Some people are able to control Type 2 diabetes with losing and maintaining healthy weight, lowering carb intake and regular exercise. Some are not, and need medication. It is impossible to answer your question because every diabetic is different and it would depend on how high your numbers were to begin with and what you ate and did. Serious consequences (complications) from diabetes don't occur in 24 hours, they occur over time spent at high numbers.
14386166 tn?1434271742 Hello everyone..I have been Type 2 Diabetic for 19 months now and I am on a few Medications such as..Humalog 50-25 units 3 times per day and Byetta 10 unitis 2 times per day and Metformin 2 times per day and Atrovastatin once per day..when I was diagnosed I weighed 120kg now I weigh 154kg, I have been in Terrible pain over the past year..
Avatar m tn Hello, In regard to Type 2 diabetes, some people find a "cure" through weight loss and maintaining it. For Type 1 diabetes, the only known cure is an islet cell or pancreas transplant, but both are very involved surgeries as you can imagine and not undertaken in many people.
Avatar f tn most gestational diabetes cases go away soon after the baby is born but some continue on as type 2 diabetes. and if its uncontrolled diabetes (ie not being treated) then she would be losing weight.
Avatar n tn I'm confused. I have seen several postings with two digit type numbers that are not A1Cs, but self-test numbers. What is this "looks like a pen diagnostic machine" ? Is it something different that a regular glucose meter?
