is there much difference between a thin person with type 2 and a person that has to lose wieght to control diabetes.

is there much difference between a thin person with type 2 and a person that has to lose wieght to control diabetes.

I seem to be in the lower percentile that doesn't have a wieght problem but has type 2 anyway. The reading I've done on diabeties mostly talk about wieght loss. Is there something different I should be doing?

DiaBeta

DiaBeta

I just flat out refuse to take Diabet again. Why? It gave me foot neuropathy which started when I was 20 minutes walk from the house. Longest walk I've ever had and we did 25 mile road marches when I was in the Army.

What has been people’s experience with the use of Glyburide?

What has been people’s experience with the use of Glyburide?

I have taken Glyburide in the past and within an hour of taking it I would be hypoglycemic. As of the last several years, I have been on Janumet.

Is Insulin Resistance the same as Type 2 Diabetis or is there a difference?

Is Insulin Resistance the same as Type 2 Diabetis or is there a difference?

I was diagnosed 13 years ago with Insulin Resistance. Some say it is Type 2 Diabetes. Is it or is it not? I was tested many times but the highest I know about was about 4 years ago tested fasting and my insulin was 22 at the time. It is normal now.
