    I hope someone can help, I live in the UK. I am sure things are not easy, with these two serious conditions together. I hope you find some good treatment soon and wish you both well, you and your mother.

  • Re: Diabetes cost

    It can be costly but you can bring that cost right down by getting really organised and focussed. By eating low carb and exercising, you can control by diet alone hopefully, then you save money on prescriptions. The cost of strips is very expensive so if possible it is practical to test less as time goes on. What I mean is, once you know all the foods

    Not necessarily. Best thing is go to your doctor and have blood tests. Whatever the result it will always be a good thing to lose weight, eat low carb and take exercise.

  • Re: my daughter who is 8 bg runs 230_500 two hours after meals

    I think childrens diabetes need the expert help of the doctor. Generally speaking the diet of any diabetic should be low in carbohydrate. However, you need specialist advice because children need food to grow properly and develop well. I personally think that a diet of protein and fats with low carb items is a good one. However, I am an adult with type

  • Re: Already ready to give up

    You are eating too much carbohydrate. Stop the bananas, rice and beans. Get yourself a carb counting book. Continue to eat proteins e.g. meat, fish, eggs, bacon. Eat fats such as butter, cream, fat on meat is fine, take full fat milk. The carbohydrates to cut out are bread, rice, potatoes, milk (especially skimmed), all sugary food, all cakes and biscuits

  • Re: Measuring 2 hours after a meal... how would you make that more clear?

    I would keep it simple. If you eat at 7pm make sure to check at 9pm. A few minutes makes no real difference. By checking this post prandial level you are seeing how your body dealt with that meal. The level should be 6.7mm maximum (that is my rule). If it is higher than that it indicates you need to eat less carbs in your meals. Best not to let it ever

  • Re: Can Type 2 Diabetes Go Into Remssion?

    Roy actually I think type 2 means we produce a lot of insulin,often vast amounts of it. The problem is that we are insulin resistant and are unable to use it. By eating low carb we are able to reduce insulin production, give our pancreas less pressure and so be able to control the blood sugar.By losing weight and taking exercise along with low carb

  • Re: Can Type 2 Diabetes Go Into Remssion?

    No. I don't think that is possible. Our best bet is to control it for the rest of our lives. This can be done extremely effectively by eating low carb, high protein/fat diets and by exercising for good health and to reduce insulin resistance.

  • Re: Need advice..

    Ask Kevin to come on here himself or to join any of the many excellent forums on the internet where there are specific groups for Type 1's to talk to each other. That is the only way he is going to listen - if he speaks to people of his own age. The internet is such a wonderful way for people to connect.
