I was diagnosed with type 2 Diabetes and put on Metformin on June 26th, 2019. I started some diabetes diet and followed it 100% for a few weeks and could not get my blood sugar to go below 140. Finally i began to panic and called my doctor, he told me to get used to it. He said I would be on metformin my whole life and eventually insulin. At that point i knew something wasn’t right and began to do a lot of research. Then I found a diabetes website http://www.wellhealthplans.com/diabetestreatmentvideo I read that article from end to end because everything the writer was saying made absolute sense. I started the diet that day and the next morning my blood sugar was down to 100 and now i have a fasting blood sugar between Mid 70’s and the 80’s. My doctor took me off the metformin after just three week of being on this lifestyle change. I have lost over 30 pounds and 6+ inches around my waist in a month. The truth is we can get off the drugs and help myself by trying natural methods

Christie Schwager this is indeed a dangerous disease. I’ve had two lows in my sleep, the second time I had hemiplegia- was projectile vomiting by the time EMS arrived which my endo told me was a sign of literally minutes to live. I couldn’t even talk
Marcia Stone does xylitol spike blood sugar yes, it sucks. I’ve had many many times of the lows that sucked. So I hope they continue letting me keep the g6. I don’t think my body could go throw the terrible lows again. I had an undiagnosed condition where my body didn’t process carb
Christie Schwager I think I’m experiencing a similar thing with not being able to process foods. I have celiac which is part of the problem but I’m now being tested for pancreatic enzyme insufficiency. I’d does xylitol spike blood sugar been very sick over the past month and a hal

Marcia Stone when I had my knee surgery, you know nothing to eat or drink. Of course I was low. So we get to the hospital, and I tell her I think I’m low. She blew me off. Then she was arguing that I does xylitol spike blood sugar was type 2. No lady I’m type 1 since I was a little
I’m so sorry she didn’t listen to you. I’m always very demanding. I’m also a nurse so I don’t let them override me!
mine was in the nightstand when i had one. Prob should carry it. ??
I don’t carry one either I don’t even know where mine is in my house and I got low all the time I try to make sure I have pop or candy bar with me
We have had one in the nightstand, but I see the point of does xylitol spike blood sugar carrying it with you. Our copay on one of them is $50. And as yall food to avoid during diabetes know, it is a one and done product. Don’t have one at the moment.
Or at least very affordable. I try to have a soft drink as we call them in La. or a soda… haven’t yet said “pop”

c for almost 30 years and I’ve only used a glucagon pen once when I was a child. Today it sits in my drawer in the back cabinet LOL. It is good to have one just in case but I really don’t think you’ll need to carry it everywhere but then again if it makes you feel more at peace then sure!
I get that. My hub is a RN and he grabbed the pen when does xylitol spike blood sugar I was passing out at 30. Never occurred to me to carry it.
Glucagon must be kept at a stable room temperature between 20 and 25 degres. I don’t know where you live, but that goal can only be achieved indoors.
And besides, there’s no point in carrying it around. Only someone who was taught how and when to use i
Besides, glucagon is an extreme measure, to be used if you are unresponsive. If you’re able
