Has Anyone Had Weight Loss Surgery To "cure" Diabetes?

A DiabetesTeam Member asked a question 💭

I have been told that after having this surgery I would no longer have to treat my diabetes. However I am wondering if I would be trading one set of problems for another. Since I have a weight problem being approved is not a problem, but I prefer to do things as naturally as possible. Some insight would be helpful and appreciated.

Lower Blood Sugar Levels

A DiabetesTeam Member asked a question 💭

I have been enjoying life meaning eating everything mostly on weekends. i just started after a month taking my blood sugar level and t was about 225. that put me in a watch mode. So I have been eating low carbs and exercising a lot. I cannot get to below 150. My test strips were expired so can my test meter be too old now after 3 years? Or my sugar was too high and it takes time for it to level off.

Morning Members, I Need To Know Is There A Difference In The Strength Of Insulin Actraphane And Actrapid. ?

A DiabetesTeam Member asked a question 💭

I took the Actrapid and got very sick last week. I can't just go to the hospital if I have no appointment date. I went to the pharmacy to ask about it, and the lady were reluctant to help and said I should go back to the hospital. I still have Actraphane that I continue taking, but it will run out soon. Nor sure what to do 😏

A DiabetesTeam Member

Thank you all for the hugs, I feel loved.☺️
