  • Re: Has Anyone had success in managing T2 with nutrition and exercise instead of drugs?

    I began with very simple exercises such as walking a block (which I initially found painful and left me out of breath) and increased this as my weight went down.

  • Glimepiride and weight gain

    Anyone have any experience with glimepiride (brand name Amaryl)? I've put on more than 10 pounds since starting on 1 mg per day in November. My activity level is down, but I'm surprised how steadily I have gained weight. On the plus side, my BG is much better controlled. I guess I better get...
