Diabetes Battle

Sunday, February 03, 2013

Well, obviously the diabetes got my declaration of war, because it fought back with a sugar level of over 240, which I drowned in the pool right away. After 35 minutes of swimming, it was down to a relatively tame 150 - still high, but not in the danger zone.
Since then, it has started of strong with high sugars of 150 to 170 in the mornings, but then lost steam throughout the day as I bombarded it with metformin, low-carb foods, veggies and meats, and swimming.
The battle is on.

    I feel for you with the blood sugar issue. Last April, I went on a low carb diet. (Atkins). Since then my blood sugars have gone down into the normal range, and I am completely off of my diabetes medications, as well as one of my blood pressure medications.My doctor actually said I am no longer diabetic any more. Also lost 55 lbs. Feels great. Once in a while I struggle with the diet plan, but it is well worth it. Best wishes to you. Glenn

PS I was on Metformin at one time also.

    In September of last year I was diagnosed with early-stage diabetes and I'm glad to say that after three months, as of my last visit to the doctor in December, I was able to completely kick my diabetes diagnosis in the butt.

For me diabetes never really had a chance to fully develop if my understanding of the whole process is right, but it was amazing to see how responsive my body was to the changes that I've been making here on Spark.

My A1C went from 6.3 to 5.5 in 3 months.

SparkPeople is amazing in my book. Anyway, I'm sure that you can kick your diabetes in the butt too if you keep at it. The time frame might not be the same, but no matter what, you can do it.

Good luck with your battle! You can win it! emoticon
