1328782 tn?1275081537 Too much of anything is of course too much, but do separate what you need to do for your diabetes and what you need to do to lose weight. Weight loss is important of course, but one step at a time. If you lower your carb intake to control your blood sugars you will probably lose weight in the process. No, you can't solve all your health problems with the click of a button but it is a start and good for you for being willing to start the process.
Avatar m tn Firstly, I am amazed at the weight loss that people have being having with Victoza. I am type 2 diabetic, being on Novomix for 5yrs, dieted with no results whatsoever. Then, my medical plan changed me to Biosulin 6months ago, and my sugar got out of control. I was hospitalised last week for uncontrolled diabetes.I am on the Victoza pen now for 2.5 weeks, had no side effects and lost 4 kg's. My appetite has subsided tremendously. my average 3 monthly readings was 16.5.
233622 tn?1279338505 We both lost weight ~ she had a very drastic weight loss, I didn't. I believe the difference was that on the WW program, they teach you more "how" to eat and learning good choices along with portion control. I didn't really have my daily menus planned out ~ I don't like using a menu. I really want to do it on my own. In the Jenny Craig program, my sister bought her food from them. It was already made ~ all she had to do was heat it up.
Avatar m tn Since you didn't tell us what this plan consist of, I suggest you go back to your doctor and discuss making necessary adjustments to the plan to halt the weight loss. Also consider opening YOUR OWN new post on the Weight Loss forums.
Avatar n tn Both type 2 diabetes and hypertension are linked to being overweight and for many people this can be managed through weight loss and dietary changes. I suggest meeting with a dietician to help develop a meal plan, and start exercising slowly with a goal of atleast 30 minutes 5 times a week. (Check with your doctor before you begin any exercise program). Good luck and take care.
Avatar n tn Everyone in my family is diabetic. I am 5'7, 260 lbs. I know if i lose weight and take better care of myself i can keep from being diabetic, but i am already getting the symptoms. Does anyone know of a web site or anyone i can talk to about the right diet or meal plans to get my health back in tune. I do have a membership to a gym and go every morning but have not seen any results yet other than my weight is now at a stable 260 instead of gaining.
Avatar f tn I've also reduced my insulin doses at lunch and tea and overnight and I've completely stopped my morning indulin due to my weight loss. My cholesterol levels have come down too. I plan to get to a 'normal' bmi range within the next year which is around another 9 stone to lose and hopefully that will help my chances of getting pregnant. It has to happen again some day. I'm doing everything I can to help it.
Business woman1 Do you have medical conditions that make weight loss difficult? Those might include insulin resistance, hypothyroidism and/or PCOS. If you do, you have to get those under control before you will be able to lose weight.
Avatar n tn Doc says I'am borderline diabetic and need to lose weight. The drug was prescribed to help with the weight loss. However she stressed that you still need to watch your diet and exercise. I have been doing this for a long time but kept going up and down with my weight. I am 5 4" and currently weigh 235.5. I weigh in every Tuesday and after 4 days I lost 3 pounds. I am now starting to take the meds 2 xs a day so it will be interesting to see what happens next week.
Avatar f tn I don't have a good comprehensive plan , nor the motivation right now. About MS working against weight loss. It certainly can, because of increased inactivity and a difficulty adjusting our intake from the days when we were very active. The disease itself doesn't prevent the loss, but the effects of it do.
Avatar n tn Are there any doctors who give these shots in Phila.for weightloss? Where can I get them on line?
Avatar n tn It should take about 2 months to get to that dosage but I'm getting kinda excited hearing about the benefit of weight loss especially since it was weight loss pills (metabolife and xenedrine) that caused me to find out that I was epileptic in the first place! The doctor told me that i might get tingling in my fingers and i might feel a little dopy but happy dopy he described it as, so I figure i can deal with that! If I start losing weight at a rapid pace i'll definitely post again!
1536914 tn?1302705194 I've started waking at night with a headache so I went back taking a magnesium supplement and that seemed to do the trick for me. Congratulations on your weight loss! You are doing great. I know you are right about the yoga too. I started doing some on my Wii and really enjoying it but for some reason I stopped. I have to get back to it. :) Please do add me as a friend. I look forward to hearing how you are doing. And I plan to do better too for the new year.
Avatar n tn im needing to find a simple diabetic diet plan. the doctor gave me one but it seems really complicated. does anyone know any good sources for diabetic diet plans?
Avatar n tn Hi everyone! I have been taking Effexor XR 150mg. for a month and I am experiencing weight loss. I went from weighing 169-172 lbs. to now weighing 155. I love this anti-depressant. I have found that it works for me when no other drug would. I have noticed that I get full fast and I have no desire to eat. I can only say that this drug has altered my sex drive considerably, but I was a bit over-sexed to begin with. The Effexor has made my sex drive more controllable.
Avatar m tn My sugar is still great but no more weight loss. I thought this was going to be my answer to weight loss prayers. I did have a lot of nausea and loss of appetite so I guess that had a lot to do with it. I have contacted the company but haven't gotten a reply. Let me know how you do.
1498386 tn?1403031253 I have started exercising at a gym and following a diabetic diet and lost 6kg in 3 months, the metformin also contributes to weight loss.. The cramps and pains dont go away. I need to know if anyone has overcome pcos ? Have you lost the weight completely ? Most importantly, have you managed to concieve and deliver a healthy baby ?
Avatar n tn I've been reading those threads related to the hCG shots for weight loss subject, and I suspect that once again (as it happened in 1974) the method will be misused by all those who only wish to grab a commercial profit from its use. Please let me remind you again, and again, and again, that hCG is a PRESCRIPTION drug that MUST be dispensed by a licensed Physician. hCG injections are PART of a comprehensive weight reduction program.
Avatar f tn Google the diet to pull up all the foods. It pretty much is a meal plan to curve your chocolate intake, take away your bad fats, increase good fats, and stay on better sugars. (: Hope this helps!! I've lost 25 lbs. on this. And I've never felt better!
Avatar n tn You didn't mention what kind of insulin routine he's on and that definitely will make a difference in how his meal plan is structured. Some insulins require a VERY strict timing, as well as quantity of carbohydrate intake. There is a newer insulin regimin called Lantus which doesn't require a person using it to eat at prescribed times as does the other long-acting insulins. For a person using Lantus, they would take that injection 1 or 2 times each day to cover their basal rate of insulin.
Avatar n tn Can anyone direct me or share a sample diet plan to acheive weight loss? I have had Diabetes for 20 years and I eat healthy and work out 4 - 5 times a week, but a like others on this forum, I want to achieve a 10-15 lb. weight loss.I want to have a good idea of what I need to do. I am stumped and dont see any results at this point, Thanks.
1467664 tn?1288582913 Before I talk about weight loss, I want to say don't do anything that will hurt yourself just to be thinner...look better...fit in. There are so many great parts of my life that just wouldn't be if I had not taken care of myself for all these years. And there is so much available to you that wasn't there for me, so smile and enjoy living. Insulin is a growth hormone. When you gain weight, it often means that you are on too much.

Avatar n tn The result, startling at it was, consistently was the amplitude of the curve was considerably shallower with cannabis, I took it one step further and found that with a combination of cannabis and X-4 units of insulin my BG would simply not get above 11(198) where as with the X units (4 more than previously) and the same food,(no canmnabis) the BG 15-60 mins after a large meal (identical meal to prior) would surpass 13.5 (243) for brief periods.
Avatar n tn Glucomannan is a purified fiber from konjac root that is available as a bulk powder or in hard-gelatin capsules. For weight loss 1 to 3 grams before each meal has been effective. When using glucomannan and other dietary fiber supplements, it is best to start out with a small amount and increase gradually. It is recommended to drink at least 8 ounces of water each time any bulk-forming laxative, including glucomannan, is taken.
Avatar n tn Doctors have been accused of prescribing it for weight loss. This info came from a doctor who prescribes it for diabetic patients only. Apparently insurance companies are unwilling to pay for it when it is prescribed for weight loss.
365714 tn?1292202708 Oh to look after a diabetic cat requires alot of love and commitment you are both very dedicated ppl. I'm sorry I can't offer any suggestions MJ, I'm happy you have a good Vet that has treated this before and knows what to advise...I do wish Waldo all our love and wishes that he may soon feel so much better once again... I did find this website that has Q&A on diabetic cats....perhaps it will give you both some info. www.yourdiabeticcat.
215905 tn?1214505001 Before I was diagnosed with thyroid problems, looking back, I had all kinds of hyper symptoms EXCEPT the weight loss....just my luck too!!! I fought like he// to lose 35 lbs over the course of 1 1/2 years (only 4' 11 1/1" tall). Even though I was hyper, I had to literally exercise my butt off to lose any weight. After TT and RAI I got kicked into menopause at 46....again....just my luck. All this hormonal inbalance has caused insomnia for over a year and chronic fatigue.
620923 tn?1452919248 LOL i never saw this thread before just now!! I started seeing a weight loss center here in erie 3 weeks ago today, and im 11 pounds down, with pretty much no exercise.. 48# to go!
Avatar n tn The other symptoms I have are hot flashes, getting irritable easier and just plan mad due to my weight. I think you were right.... starvation is next! Thank y'all for sharing.
