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
eat them; others I eat about half of a scrambled one.
Every morning…the simpler how many carbs can a gestational diabetic have per day my selection the easier it is for me.
I haven’t had an Egg since I was Five. Cannot tolerate, even though I know Eggs are fava beans for diabetics Good for us. My Grandson thinks they are Great. Me, Not so much.
Kind of- I’m having low carb (sort of ) Daves killer bread with almond butter and sugar free marmalade! 25 carbs so yummy! And now mixing in a tbspn of ground flax
Whole wheat toast, egg beaters egg whites, and either a turkey sausage patty or greek yougurt most mornings for me
Chili cheese omelette. So so good! I made it up one morning. I used canned chili dog sauce, I’m sure homemade chili (w/o beans) would be even better, but even canned chili made it approx 3-5g carbs.
Keto pancakes from Costco or chia seed pudding with almond or coconut milk. I only do eggs like once a week now.
I had that happen once, I called the pharmacy and they fixed it. Look at the amount on the vial and box…your large one is 10ml and the small one is l.
I’ll check again. I just fava beans for diabetics kind of panicked! This stuff isnt cheap!
hopefully they can fix it for you without too much trouble.
Where are you from? I havent seen this never with my vials. I suppose they gave you more vials if its 1/3 of the regular vial. Waw!!
Some hospitals use the l vials. I didn’t think they were available otherwise.
Call the drug company. They’ll need place and date of purchase and some codes off the bottle label. The packaging may be different foods diabetics should eat due to COVID-19. Some products are available but the manufacturers can’t get the usual packaging right now.
Did they give you the same amount (mis) as your script but in more smaller bottles?
Is the total amount in mls matching your prescription?The small ones are l and the large are 10ml.
The only thing the box actually says are the same is the strength of the Insulin, which is indicated by the fava beans for diabetics “U-100” meaning 100 units of Insulin per ml of fluid, or 1,000 units of Insulin per 10 ml vial compared to only 300 units per 3 ml vial.
A couple of people have reported unexpected results and one reported receiving a cloudy solution. Contact pharmacy and the corporate office too as well as manufacturer for replacement. You will need the lot number in the good food and diabetes pen/ vial. Write that down.
I’ve been on it for a couple of years and was having some issues. But I was taken off for fava beans for diabetics awhile and then put back on. Everything seems to be going okay now.
Right now….. a/c and plenty of water.Its been so hot and i love being outdoors but i just can’t right now untill the sun goes down.
Water…hydrate and swimming…& Apple juice for lows. Shade rather than direct sun during the hottest part of the day (11-3) when possible. A/C is my fava beans for diabetics friend 🙂
Plenty water and I also make small changes to my insulin pump by cutting back my basal slightly as my blood sugar tends to run lower in summer x
I always love summer w/ diabetes! I’m more active, drink more water, and don’t eat nearly as much. I think the extra heat and wat
