  • Good information to keep in mind for your health. Thanks you!
  • I wish I had read this article 10 years ago, but on the right track now.
  • I don't have diabetes and I want to keep it that way. I have a friend with type 1. I like to understand what she has to go through as a diabetic.
  • good info..thanks Coach Dean
  • Very good information in this article. My legs have been hurting a lot at night not sure if it is due to exercise or not.
  • This article has sooo much helpful information, I wish it was available several years ago when I was first diagnosed with this disease, but today I am fighting back. It is working --four times the doctor has reduced the amount of insulin that I was taking since being in the hospital with 810 blood sugar level.
  • This article make me think I' was diabetic as a teenager although I am diagnosed as pre-diabetic now. I got many of these symptoms when exercising including black outs after exercise. Hmm. Doctors didn't think much when i complained about my symptoms. Maybe because I was so underweight.
  • This morning my blood sugar was 85, did a two mile walking tape, WATP's, and checked my numbers again and it was at 123. Other days I am at 123 and after walking it is down in the 85-100 range. The pattern I see different in these reactions is my intake of food. It will raise when I exercise at the end of a fast over night, and lower after a small meal with protein. When you do not have enough glucose in your system, your body starts using your fat to produce glucose, to raise the blood sugars to keep you balanced and able to move and do all the body functions it needs to do, that is why the body stores it. I am no doctor, it is only the patterns that I see, I may not have the technical terms, but I know how my body responds, and that may not be the case for everyone. We are our own best advocates to health. Keep studying your body, the issues, side effects of the medicines you take, awareness is key!
  • Type 2 diabetic, I have found stress raises my numbers. I have been off meds for 5 years - 5 years since I have worked in the workplace. Now I have to stop watching newsprograms (live in USA) I can't stop the mess in govt, those in power have to do that. I have, however, called my US Senator and voiced my concern. In my own small way, I am trying to preserve what was wonderful before election day. I am determined not to ruin my health.
