I know the A1C is every 3 months but my meter always gives the decimal point, all the meters I've seen here list blood sugars as a decimal point not the way everyone lists them on here. Do you know if its a Canadian thing compared to an American thing?

that is using my meter for checking my sugar levels. Your A1C levels are usually only checked through lab work about every 3-6 months.

Just wondering... When you post your sugar levels like 137 for example what does that mean. When I have been given mine they are always alot lower. My last A1C was 5.1 and this morning when I took mine it was 4.3. WHen I was at the Dr. last month she told me my blood sugar levels are almost at the level of a non-diabetic. When I was diagnosed in January the one blood test had it over 14.0

yes it is really helping control my appetite, I can't believe how much less I eat. I know what you mean about the blood sugar numbers, mine in the morning are about 100-120, but still that is higher than after I eat, usually its between 80-100 after I have eaten and waited a few hours.

I am on Byetta. It is for controlling your blood sugar, but it also helps with appetite. I have noticed a significant change in my appetite since I have started using it and it has also helped my blood sugars. Except for my morning #'s. I am hanging around 130 - 140 in the mornings, can't seem to get them down, but I am working on it.

It helps blood sugar levels and it is suppose to reduce your appetite. So it helps both...but it doesn't work for everybody either. Here is a link to more information: http://www.medicinenet.com/exenatide/artic

I am so proud of myself. Yesterday my grandma and I went to my favorite Mexican restaurant. I LOVE their chips and salsa, well I tried one chip and just thought it was disguisting. I ALWAYS order the taco salad, but yesterday I told them to not put it in the tortilla shell, I am just so proud and happy that I was able to do that...and I could only eat about half of the salad, when normally I can eat all of that, half of the tortilla shell and some chips and salsa...the byetta is working. Even my grandma said that she is proud of me (normally she is very negative about things)

I also take Metformin 850 mg 3X a day. Well since last Saturday when I weighed on my parents scale I have lost 12 lbs. I go back to see the doctor on August 11th and I will check with her about the whole grain things, but for now I am just staying away from those things that she told me and just eating fruits/veggies and lean meats.

Thank you everyone! My a1c back in March was 6.3, but 6 months before that it was 5.8.

I'm not on insulin I take 250mg of metformin 2x a day. Your a1c is your blood sugar average for 3 months normal ranges are between 3.8 and 7. I was told I'm still diabetic even though mine is in the normal range but right now it is under control with the combination of medication diet and excerise. And on a really happy note since the beginning of March I have lost 50 lbs.

I can eat a 3/4 cup cereal, 1 cup skim milk and one cup orange juice and have 73 carbs for breakfast. That leads me enough for a piece of wheat toast.

Linda, why are you talking negative like "I am a diabetic! I am not on insulin yet!" What exercises are you doing? Because with the diet we also have to exercise and drink at least 8 glasses of water. How long have you known you were a Diabetic?

The numbers you are asking about are the A1c numbers. Her numbers used to be 10 and through diet and exercise it is now below the normal numbers which is 6.0.

emoticon SSSHORTCAKE ON YOUR NUMBERS. Great work. Mine went from 11 down to 9.6 but still too high.

Here is something I just found regarding CARBS.

Question: How many carbs should I eat per day?

I am trying to find out how many carbohydrates I should have in my diet each day.

Answer: The most recent Dietary Guidelines for Americans suggest that about half of your daily calories come from carbohydrates. A person who eats approximately 2,000 calories per day should take in about about 250 grams of carbohydrates.

While keeping track of the amount of carbohydrates you need every day is important, choosing the right carbohydrate-rich foods is equally important. Your carbohydrates should come from whole grain bread, cereals and pastas, nuts, seeds, legumes, fruits and vegetables.

Avoid unhealthy carbohydrate-rich foods, such as sugary snacks, pastries, sugar-sweetened soft drinks, candy, cookies, greasy chips and most processed, packaged snack foods. These foods contain too many calories while offering little or no nutritional value. Some of these foods also contain saturated and trans-fats that are bad for your heart.

Tips for Tracking Your Carbohydrates

* find the carbohydrate grams on the nutrition facts labels on packaged foods
* use the USDA National Nutrient Database for Standard Reference to calculate carbohydrate amounts of fresh foods
* use a food diary to keep track of your information
* make it very easy and join Calorie Count Plus to track calories, carbs and find suggestions for a healthy diet.

I am a diabetic! I am not on insulin yet! Too many carbs for me is disasterous! I tried to follow the diabetic diet and it is all carbs for breakfast! It had cereal, milk, slice of toast, juice! NO WAY!!!! maybe when I am put on insulin! I have around 1 item at each meal only that is carbs! The juice alone would make me sick!

GOODSARGENT1226 I was thinking the same thing, I went and saw a diabetic dietican and I was told to eat healthy carbs and that a body needs at least 135 carbs a day to function properly and you should never go below that amount, I was told going for approx. 200 carbs a day was a good way to go.

KCATEACHER, why would your Dr. tell you to stay away from food that is suppose to be good for you like whole wheat pasta, whole wheat breads, beans and cereal? These are some of the best things for Diabetics. Are you sure that the Dr. didn't mean white breads, pasta, beans and cereals? I would check it out. We are not suppose to be eating WHITE. emoticon emoticon

Do Not Worry

6:25-33 pp—Lk 12:22-31

Mt 6:25 “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more important than food, and the body more important than clothes?

well I just started it a month ago, and she just barely upped my dosage this past Monday. My mom has had great results using it, she has lost 100 lbs since she has been on it. So we are seeing if it will have the same effects for me.

I wonder what will happen if you stop taking it? Or do you have to just stay on it?

YOU CAN DO IT!

I never said that it wasn't right for me. She told me that it doesn't always work for everybody...so she upped the dose to see if that helps and so far it has been helping. You are right, not every person losses weight with certain things, but thanks.

Ever thought that byetta is not right for you??

Not everyone who goes on to that drug gets the weight off, yes many do but not everyone cause its not right for everyone. You might do better on a different one, I know that I'm on one and for many they get no weight off while on it, yet I dropped 10 pounds in 4 days when I was started on it and still am having a more resonable weight loss a month later.

well according to my parents scale since Saturday I have lost 7 lbs....their scale is actually heavier than the doctors scale by about 2 lbs my mom said, so if that is correct than in a day and a half I have lost 5 lbs...either way a loss is GREAT!

Thanks shortcake, but my doctor said to cut those things out. Well it's been a day and a half of no carbs and I am already down 3 lbs. So I like that number, but I don't know if I was bloated yesterday or what, either way its a LOSS :)

KCAZTEACHER, for good carbs you want to find foods that take a longer time for your body to process and turn into sugar, things that have high fibre like whole wheat pasta, whole wheat breads, beans and cereal. The is also an article called The Truth About Carbohydrates on here that I have listed as one of my favorites that is really helpful and explains alot.

yeah she still wants me to eat the good carbs (fruits and veggies), but are there other good carbs that aren't fruits and veggies? I am not sure, I bet there is an article about it. I never learned much on the food guide pyramid and I haven't had to teach it, so I am not up to date on this topic. Thanks again!

Hi I am new to this group. I am a 27 year old single mom, I am a teacher and I was diagnosed type 2 diabetic back in Dec. of 2002. I have been on metformin since then. A month ago the doctor put me on byetta to see if that would help me to lose weight. My mother is also a t2d and she has been on byetta for almost 2 years and she has lost 100+ lbs.

Well today I went for a check up to see how the byetta was working for me, and well I hadn't lost any weight, but I didn't gain any either. The doctor wasn't happy about that. So she told me that I need to cut carbs out of my diet (breads, pasta, chips, potatoes) and I never really ate a lot of those things. So anybody else have a similar diet to this? What do you do? What do you eat? Snacks? I need some information on this. Thanks :)
