how to avoid diabetes

I wanted to apologize for not being on here much. As I think I said before one of the side effects with type 2 is cataracts. I had to have both eyes done and in order for me to see the. Small print I have to have a magnifying glass. So I will be absent until my vision gets better….Sorry and please make sure you all take care of your eyes, I was diagnosed as T2 last March and it threw me for a loop .. why me .. I know nothing about it .. told to lose weight .. watch my carbs .. then a clinic told me about a 10 course on diabetes and I signed up .. I learned so much .. I worked with a dietitian who works with me around what I like to eat and since March I have lost 28 lbs. and on my last blood test, my A1C was .052 and my glucose was 6.3 .. my doctor told me my blood test result were amazing, such a improvement on last years results. Once I got over why me I went to work on myself and took care of me watching what I ate, etc. I will always have T2 diabetes, but I’m keeping it under control. Only I can help myself and I’ve had to learn that I cannot depend on others.
This is so true I know type1s who believe that theirs is some how superior to type 2s as they couldn’t help it type2s bring it on themselves… mine was a result of gestational diabetes and also runs in the family I’m not overweight and never have been so no amount of dieting will “cure” it!! I’ve never had a sweet tooth luckily and always ate healthy but my medication keeps going up and up as the diabetes progresses !! So tired of hearing that I’m bringing on myself and doing something wrong, Life is too short to dwell on it, just get on and do what you have to do. We all have our issues and there are worse things than diabeties. Having s.
aid that there are a few of us with diabeties types 1 and 2 in the family, Any change, particularly having someone whose diet has to change, makes it more difficult for others in the family, but it can become less of an issue when everyone pulls together. Caring for others, not just because of illness, is being nurtured by society again and it is good to see, This is the regime I followed to reverse my type II downward spiral. I can recommend doing an Internet search about this,  I take 50 mg Magnesium supplement each evening after having several bouts of leg cramps especially at night. Stopped cramps & restless leg syndrome. I sleep much better now, seems to be only for Americans and if you are on or considering taking some drug that is obviously sponsoring the doctor……its all about the money, I bet he doesn’t care a damn personally about whether you are diabetic or not…lol!!!
Dr Phil is only doing this for the money he will make That is all he cares about! He had my friend on his show that son was murdered and treated her terrible I have NO Respect for this man!!!! Wouldn’t take any drug he is peddling, dont know if it is the diabetes tablets or the anti depressants but in the 2 years since been diagnosed with diabetes have lost now more than 13 kgs to pile back on 7 of those over time, and now starting a Fresh Start 12 week programme to get weight back under control, Can someone answer me this …
I’ve had a bad head cold for 2 weeks which has gone to my chest so coughing a lot. My wife got me some Cavonia cough medicine , I took it during the night and suffered extremely high blood sugar levels to a point of having hallucinations, It made me very ill. Being very honest here. I have a colostomy and with all the side affects from the Metformin I was going broke paying for supplies because of the stomach problems. So many reports out there stating Metformin is proving to be harmful. Please read up on , I was spewing with this. Not a good look for my work.
Went to doctor who prescribed HALF a tablet.
Still spewed.
Went back and she threatened to have my drivers license. GAve me anti nausea pills, which made me worse.
Back onto it I went, after a slight car accident caused by the grogginess caused by the Mets, I returned to her, threw them what I had left, at her and said, “No more, take my license, I don’t care, no more of this!!!”
The day after taking myself off it, the spewing stopped
Metformin alone isn’t controlling my bg adequately and at higher doses I have problematic side effects. Thinking I should maybe add a second med. I’ll be talking to my doctor about this, Works for me 2 1000mg in morning 1000mg at night…ya im alot in bathroom but doesnt bother me so much used too i by now after almost 3 years, Bullshit it is toxic shit that just pushes you on to a type one.So is that other crap that forces your pancreas to produce more insulin ,your body is insulin insensitive you must make it sensitive again glycoside ? will make you a type 1 diabetic guaranteed more poison,  It made me so I’ll, I ended up in hospital so happy to be off it, the lower doses were fine when increased I had all sorts of problems. Numbers way down now yay! It does not suit everyone but I gave it a good try..
