Nope. Pre-Diabetes not only NOT ruled out but Suddenly Type 2 Diabetes

Saturday, January 19, 2013

And I have always subscribed to a sports nutrition diet. I am, as of this writing, still weighing 75 pounds less than in my youth.

Now, what is the problem?

I think the yoga, and the pilates. Not cardio enough.

I think the diet, the SAD but calorie-controlled, flexitarian variety of same: Not South Beach-ish enough ...

SAD stands for Standard American Diet ...

I know my lifestyle of a lot of environmental noise and vibration pollution where I live and sleep engendered this problem. The Diabetes range (lowest border) was a build-up over a few years. Not totally asymptomatic.

The scorecard stands at my diet being closer to what is needed to manage diabetes than the exercise is. I know that from my earliest attempts to change things up.

Since I only have to use the glucometer twice a day ... (not like in Type 1 diabetes), I may not submit exercise effects to testing ...

Actually, within the space of 12 hours, I tried yoga as well (this morning in my apartment) ... just under an hour was all I could take before my left leg cramped up again and again [it did that, to a lesser degree, in my pilates mat class, and not enough to disturb the energy of the class], even though I am much more cross-trained in vinyasa yoga than my cardio of choice which is freeform ecstatic dance -- (yes, deeming 5 Rhythms not cardio enough ...) ... for what it's worth, my symptoms are helped better by the dance ...

    So sorry to hear that you're dealing with Type 2 Diabetes. My husband has this and I know how upset we were when we found out. But, the good news is that it's a manageable disease and it's possible for a lot of people to get off meds through weight loss and exercise. Anyway, hang in there and keep your chin up and do what you need to do for yourself to be healthy. emoticon
