Avatar f tn Hi Doctor, my mom is a type 2 diabetes patient. she takes 500 mg x 2 glucophage. since diabetes is linked to other diseases as well, what general tests or physical examinations should she have them done. what special precautions she shud take in her diet like taking high fibre diet is good for her. i have told her to take fish oil by pulse (1000 mg) thrice a week. is that good for her.
Avatar f tn Most primary care doctors are not clued in on diabetes care and treatment. This is where an Endocrinologist, a diabetes specialist, comes into play. If push comes to shove where she needs to hear from an expert get her to one.

In 2005 I decided on a life style change predominantly targeted at reducing my weight and found that I could reduce my insulin intake.

Avatar n tn what type of food should you eat when your doctor tell you you are pre diabetes. and put you on metformin?
Avatar n tn It's gonna be like that untill someone extraordinary finds a way to completely fix type 2. Type 1 will never be fixed, but one day we may understand why it happens and will be preventable. For now it's either drastically lowering the consumption of carbs, or the drugs. There's no inbetween.

Business man2 Let us not forget Type 2 diabetes is associated with obesity, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, lack of daily 30-60 exercise, and above all poor food choices. In its early stage it is possible to reverse diabetes. This does not mean you can ignore lifestyle changes by going back to the bad habits which created your diabetes, it means you must adhere to a diabetic prevention lifestyle or it will return.
Avatar n tn Given your weight, diet and history you may be adult onset type 1 (research LADA) rather than type 2. Treatment for this is insulin rather than oral meds, usually. Your fasting no. are reasonable now, but your after eating is still too high. Yes, exercise and low carb eating are very helpful in controlling blood sugars and minimising med requirements. Hope this helps.
Avatar m tn Hi, the tendency towards diabetes (type 2) is not curable, but the expression of that diabetes can be managed / cured by lifestyle (weigh loss, low carb eating, exercise), as long as you consider that you will be 'cured' only as long as you follow that lifestyle. Further diabetes is not a simple disease and some people will develop it regardless of how good their diet and lifestyle is (not that one shouldn't continue with that lifestyle), and may need medications as well.
Avatar f tn weight loss and increased physical activity is directly related to improved diabetes control. To help Americans fight the dramatic increase in type 2 diabetes, Joslin Diabetes Center has crafted new nutrition and physical activity guidelines for overweight and obese individuals with type 2 diabetes and those at risk for developing diabetes (pre-diabetes).
798555 tn?1292791151 Prediabetes is usually seen as a precursor to type 2 type diabetes, which is not the autoimmune type. Type 2 diabetes, was known as adult onset type, has a strong genetic component and is often associated with insulin resistance. This forces the pancreas to work harder and eventually it can't produce enough insulin. Type 1 is autoimmune type. This happens when the insulin producing cells of the pancreas are attacked by antibodies which destroy them.
Avatar n tn I'm Sophie, and I was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes about 2 weeks ago. I'm 15 years old. I'm coping well with everything, including the injections, however when I actually inject the insulin it stings/burns. The actual pain of the needle prick is bearable but this burning sensation is not. Does this sound familiar to anyone? Anyway, back to the abdominal pain.
Avatar f tn I am asking because if you are normal weight this may be type 1 (early) rather than type 2, which I presume your dr has assumed. First, if you are overweight, you need to normalize yor weight. THis may be enough to reverse the prediabetes. Second, you need to get active. Target 30 - 60 minutes minimum every day. Third, Diet. Low carb, moderate protein, high healthy fats is the way to go. You will also need to consume an appropriate amount of calories for your weight and activity level.
Avatar f tn So i came straight home and ate a spoonful, and i tested 2 hours later and my reading was a 6! I couldn't believe it, i thought for sure i'd be over after eating the white bread roll, as long as i'm 7 or under thats good. Don't know whether the peanut butter theory worked, or if it was their type of bread roll, but i was happy!
Avatar n tn Hey, So I have type I diabetes, and I like to drink. I do it fairly often, and in moderation. Sometimes, I like to get wasted like everybody else. and I keep water bottles with me to stay hydrated and my glucometer and Insulin to use as needed and im fine. try having a drink instead of taking mind-altering drugs.
Avatar m tn Hey Jim! It actually advisable for type 2's to go low, low carb. I avoid medication by living a Paleo dietary lifestyle. I did so because my blood glucose had crept into T2 territory after years of dancing with the devil, "high fructose corn syrup". That and the near constant M&M drip line that sat on my office desk all day. The first couple of weeks are literal pain. There is definitely a carb withdrawal period.
97615 tn?1212682189 i am a 25 year old type 1 diabetic and am currently pregnant for the 4th time i have a 4 1/2 year old daughter and have had 2 mis carriges. i have no medical training and can only speak from experiance. my first preganacy was perfect no problems at all. i didnt find out i was preganat untill i was already 21 weeks along and although my daughter was born 7 weeks early at a mere 4pounds 9oz she had no health problems and has never suffered any side effects of her early birth.
Avatar n tn Hi... I'm no doctor, but I am Type 2 and had VERY high cholesterol, but thanks to diet and exercise I currently have my blood sugars under tight control. I do strongly suggest you find a nutritionist somewhere, if even for one visit if you have to travel far to see one (just call and let them know your situation and most nutritionists are willing to work with you, in my experience.
Avatar f tn ) but at the very least you need to cut your sugar intake down to almost nothing (and don't let yourself drink your sugar - fruit juice is filled with sug, soda is of course, Gatorade, basically any drink that tastes sweet is high in sug), you need to monitor your carb intake - starchy foods like potatoes, corn, and beans are high - carb and grains are high carb so they need to be limited. Fruit is also high carb, though it's better for you than sugar or grains.
12311392 tn?1424613805 Our body's blood sugar levels are constantly moving up and down over the course of the day, even for people without Type 1 or Type 2 diabetes. This is how our body was naturally designed. But what isn't desired is to make your blood sugar and insulin levels look like the world's scariest rollercoaster - full of dramatic ups and downs...

1255761 tn?1294684689 Some doctors don't take pre-diabetes seriously; you are fine, you just want to stay that way as long as possible, right? Google diabetes and diet and you will find a lot of information. But basically you want to eliminate sugar from your diet, that is the worst for blood glucose. You want to reduce the amount of carbs you eat. Carbs are what raises blood sugar. A lot of carbs are in foods like bread, cereal, pasta, rice and potatoes, so you want to reduce how much you eat of those things.
Male Did you have trouble controlling your appetite on that small amount of food? I have recently been diagnosed with pre-diabetes, which could turn into full blown type II diabetes. I'm on a mission to lose about 23 lbs and so far, it's not going very well. You have to maintain your diet, in order to keep the weight off and to maintain your blood sugar levels. Carbs under 40 sounds extremely restrictive.
Avatar n tn From your previous questions, it sounds like you have a lot of questions and concerns about weight and diabetes and I would striongly recommend a visit with your dietician. She/he will direct you to an appropriate diet for your lifestyle and activity level, while taking into consideration your diabetes. Make an appointment today. You will feel better knowing that someone is guiding you in the right direction when it comes to diabetes and weight. Again, good luck.
