Common Questions and Answers about Losing weight while having diabetes


Avatar f tn I was wondering if any of you have successfully lost weight or stayed the same while pregnant. They only thing I plan on doing as far as losing weight is to eat healthy foods and not to overeat like I tend to do and to also excercise. I know if Im prego I shouldnt overdo myself on exercise but light exercise and walking wont hurt! :) I just would like to minimize the chance of getting gestational diabetes or preclampsia while prego! :) Thoughts, opinions, concerns, etc are all welcome!!!

Avatar f tn a lot of women get gestational diabetes while pregnant. did the doctor test her for that while pregnant? she might have had it and didn't know. 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 f tn Eating a low glycemic diet (foods that do not spike the blood sugar, in turn spiking insulin levels), getting adequate exercise and losing weight (if overweight) will often/usually turn pre-diabetes around. Low glycemic foods are complex carbs that take longer for the stomach to digest; they include non starchy vegetables, whole grains, lean protein, low/now fat dairy, nuts, seeds, etc.
Avatar f tn I was average weight, not overweight or underweight, but i haven't had morning sickness at all really :/
Avatar f tn I lost weight with my first 2 pregnancies and with this one so far is looking like im losing weight again I dont get it.
1304588 tn?1299071471 I weighed 226 and now I weigh 166 but still have diabetes. Though I feel losing weight may be stopped by losing weight I feel like that is mostly the morbidly obese though I am not a doctor. My mom and three sisters and 1 brother had diabetes and were all of normal weight. Eating better and exercising can help your diabetes stay under better control and lower your A1C along with possibly preventing you from needing medication or getting a lower dose. I have been diabetic for 6 years.
Avatar f tn Oh man, that's a tough one, and I understand your concern about losing weight...6 lbs in 6 days does seem like a lot, but if you're eating a healthy, balanced diet (minus the sugars), I would think you're fine. Unfortunately, I don't know too much about gestational diabetes, though. Maybe someone else on here can help with more info...
Avatar f tn You need to go the doctor. One of the symptoms of diabetes is weight loss. And really, since you were working out hardcore, your body weight should have really gone up since muscle weighs more than fat. One of the signs that I ignored was when my 13 year old lost weight. He was a tad on the chunky side and I attributed his weight loss to puberty and biking around the neighborhood more since it was summer.
Avatar f tn Some diabetes symptoms include: Frequent urination Excessive thirst Extreme hunger Unusual weight loss Increased fatigue Irritability Blurry vision
Avatar m tn I'm so sorry you're going through this. There is NOTHING more frustrating than having an animal be sick and not be able to figure out what it is. If only they could talk and tell us what they are feeling. Do you live near a veterinary college? My best advice would be to take him to a veterinary college to see what they can come up with. They have state of the art diagnostic equipment where many small vet hospitals and clinics do not.
Avatar n tn When dogs lose weight this fast I always worry about diabetes. Volunteering at the Humane Society made me see some elderly dogs diabetes' cases and the first thing was that the lost completely appetite. So I would suggest having him checked by the vet so he can run some tests and find the cause immediately.
Avatar f tn Having lost the weight I can now manage my diabetes with my diet. Since I now longer take Metformin I am having trouble losing the last 20 lbs I need to lose. Is there a connection between weight loss and taking Metformin. Has anyone else experienced this?
Avatar n tn The weight gain is most probably due to risperidone and even if your son is diagnosed with diabetes it won't go away. Losing wieght while insulin dependent is hard, but it can be done. You could try letting him drink sugar-free drinks and eating low carbohydrate foods like raw veggies and fruits, instead of battling over foods. Take him to his doctor and stay on the Risperidal-risperidone. Have him tested for diabetes.
Avatar f tn i am concerned about having diabetes, i was told this by my friend, who has a sister with diabetes. she told me to keep an eye one it, but im still not sure, im am not loosing weight i dont think, but i need help, and i dont know what it could be. also im tired all the time, and i have been urinating more then usual. i have also had a cold for the past four months, and i know it is not allergies because i have given it to practically my whole school. does any one know what it could be?
Avatar n tn Recently I had an overall checkup, they checked for pretty much everything. My doc said the test were great. I took the test early in the morning. I checked the lab test online and seen that I had fasting glucose of 105 and according to their online index table it was out of normal range. I emailed my Doc and he said that reading of 105 did not concern him. But is 105 pre-diabetic? I'm 27, male. 6'0 and 160, not overweight at all, in fact I'm too skinny for being a male.
Avatar n tn I'm not sure whether I might have diabetes, but that it runs in the family. My grandmother has diabetes, but neither my dad or brother have it. I think this way, because I can't loss wieght, I'm always hungry,drink a lot of water, not always thirsty, but than I don't have to urinate. I can hold it in me for hours and hours. I'm currently losing a lot hair on my head. I have Pimples and zits all over my head.
