What kind of foods am I supposed to eat?
The people around me are always eating fattening foods and I Need to CHANGE MY EATING HABITS. Any suggestions
I eat for comfort. Without my favorite cereal & ice cream sandwiches, there is no comfort. I know myself to well. Im afraid I will rationalize that one wont kill me. I want to take this seriously!
My Bariatric doctor wants me to change the medication that will help lose weight I just wonder if there is any in pill form. I am on Glipizide now but my doctor says that it causes weight gain.I am not good with needles. Just taking my sugars I have to close my eyes. I had gastric sleeve surgery in June of this year and my sugars are still not under control. Any suggestion will be appreciated. Thank You
I have been experiencing that my blood sugar levels at night (before going to bed) rapidly changes(increased) in the morning. For example, 7.5 at bedtime (1200AM) , 11.5 at 7-30 AM and 6.2 at bedtime (1200AM) that increases to 9.7 at 7-30 AM . There was no food intake in between bedtime and morning .

I am 53 and have had t2 for 21 years. I just found out my left carotid artery is 90% blocked and I need surgery. No stent they are just going to open and clean out. I am worried I know either way there is a chance of stroke. Has anyone had this surgery?
I've been on so many diabetic medications . Nothing is truly working for me
Metformin - did nothing for A1C
Jauamet - gave me low blood sugar too low
Victoza - I loved it but ended in emergency for the pain I was experiencing.
Now I'm on Jardiance I'm not liking it
My insurance forces me to get 90 days supply at a time. So taking 2500 mg Metformin daily (2- 1/2 tablets) I have to get 275 tablets each go round in 2 separate bottles. In the past 2-3 weeks, I have noticed that my fasting (& even other times) glucose checks were rising (Normal is 80- 120, Lately has been 150- 180). Not much has changed, diet, activity,...... Yet my fasting glucose was stubbornly high. Up until then, I have had no problems. Yesterday, I took part of the mediation (1000 mg)… read more
