Even if you can't do any other type of exercise, go for a walk. It does not have to be a fast walk just move. As long as you are consistent with walking you will find that you can do farther faster as time goes on.

I agree with the others GO TO YOUR DOCTOR and find out just what is going on. There could be other things wrong besides diabetes.

Pool exercise (swimming/water fitness) is also great and fairly low impact. Other than that cutting carbs way down (30-50 grams/day) is what works for me to keep my blood sugars optimal. Any original Atkins book (1972) will have the info you need.

Also Dr. Richard Bernstein's book and website are very helpful.
The symptoms you have sound like they could very well be caused by high blood sugar but a doctor's appointment and blood tests will confirm.

When do you test? If you test only in the morning when you wake up, you could consider testing at random times through out the day, such as just before, and then 2 hours after a meal. It doesn't matter which meal, just pick at least one meal a day to test like this. (Try to choose different meals each day so it is not always the same meals.) Keep track of what you eat for the meal and what your reading are. This will also help your doctor in making a diagnosis.

He may also order a glucose tolerance test in addition to an A1C test. Believe it or not, this is a good thing....

Good luck to you....

i agree. Don't self diagnose. You need to have an A1C to definitely make the correct avenue to follow.

First order of business is to go to your health care provider and find out what is going on. Once you know for sure what's going on, you can more accurately take appropriate steps to get things under control.

In the meantime, chair exercises are excellent. Light weights also excellent.

DO get plenty of rest.

DO chart your blood sugars so you can share that w/your health care provider.

Without knowing exactly what your sugars are, just beware that damage does occur to nerves, veins and arteries with blood sugars above 140. Soooo, that's why it would be important to find out what's what so you can do what needs to be done to get it under control.

You've taken the good step of joining this team. Stay connected!

Could you do any of the seated Spark videos (on the toolbar above under the Articles and Videos tab)? I just did the 9-minute Seated Arm & Shoulder video using 1 lb. weights. You don't have to use weights at all, though. Or if you want to use weights and don't have any, you could use soup cans. There are also seated cardio videos. I think the videos where you're sitting down the whole time might be easier on your system.

I've been testing my sugar recently, and it's consistently been in the triple digits. Plus, my feet are hot and tingling and my hands are tingling a little bit. And I'm way overweight. I think I may have adrenal fatigue as well. How do I exercise to help with the weight when I'm afraid that overexertion will send me into an adrenal crash, which will send me to bed?
