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
hankfully but I have a different mindset than most people when it comes to things which helps when it comes to diabetes control
I’m the human equivalent of the energizer bunny and tinker bell! But I have a few secret weapons up my sleeve to manage on the daily!
yes mindset is so important cuz it can make you or break you but that goes for t1d or even foods to avoid to reverse diabetes those without t1d!
Good question. That’s why I stopped substitute diabetic food dogs teaching (other than appts and travel, it was almost full-time) at age 74.
I just make sure I have what I need at work when I did work and I have type 2 I live my life normal like everyone else.
I work 50 hours a week and I’m type 1. I just wear my dexcom and pack my food in a lunch box. It takes a little extra work but it’s doable.
Are you newly diagnosed? It takes some time to figure out. Some longer than others. Just find your rhythm and live your life! ?
no I’ve had it for 26 years but I’m really trying to fine tune things… I know that some people eat what they want and bolus for it but I’m trying to lose weight so things take a little longer to prep etc.
, gotcha. Good for you for fine tuning things. Just find your NEW rhythm and live a life that you love! Find foods to avoid to reverse diabetes a good routine that works for food to reduce diabetes level you. It does take extra time to fit in planning/making healthy meals and exercise. It’s so worth it. You got this! PS: I started a new job a month ago and I’m still figuring out my a new routine. ?
I work full time and in an active job but i use a pump and its it’s great for decreasing insulin when extra busy. x
And I raised 2 sons (with spouse) and commuted. It’s possible.
It’s just life. Work full time and raising 2 kids. It can be frustrating and overwhelming, just do your best and enjoy life??
I don’t know how people cope working full time and have kids, football practice, etc.
Having type 1 diabetes isn’t a full time job. I’m 51 and work long hours, have dogs, exercise and it’s fine…..normal. It’s a mindset. I tell people I’m no differen
t except I take insulin and test my foods to avoid to reverse diabetes blood. Been this way for 32 years. Changing time zones is the only time my brain melts……but that could be jet lag.
I hope you find a rhythm that works for you that doesn’t feel like a drama x
It has never stopped me from doing anything. FT job , kids, even a mission trip to Haiti. If you want it you can make it work ??
No it isn’t. You have to eat and cook regardless of diabetes. I can make and cook a healthY meal in 23 minutes or less. Make more so there are leftovers. Testing and injecting takes a total of 6 minutes aday even on multiple. Lunches: take some sal
