Diabetes Type 2 Support Group

Type 2 Diabetes is a condition in which the body either does not produce enough insulin or does not make efficient use of it. Insulin is a hormone needed to convert food into glucose, a sugar that the body uses for energy. Without enough insulin, glucose can accumulate in the blood, and can cause serious health problems such as heart disease and strokes and organ damage such as eye and kidney damage.

    What To Do

    5
    So my new job is pretty cool in most respects, but I'm having an issue with the commute-- it's 45 minutes in the morning which isn't terrible, but it's more like 75-90 minutes in the evening home. I have to exercise, we all do. But my apartment is small (only 460 sq. ft. or thereabouts). Not that I won't exercise there if I need to. I actually spent half an hour running in place in my apartment...
  • I'd like to share this post from Intensive Dietary Management:I grew up in South Africa, over-weight most of my life with periods of weight loss (yo-yo dieting). In 2002 I went on the X-Diet, a fat-free high carbohydrate diet, for 2 years. Early in 2004 I moved to a new job in Botswana, a neighboring country, and had to have a full medical check-up after which I was diagnosed with diabetes, high...
  • I'm a pre-diabetic. I have been since January 2014. And I still can't talk about it. I don't even want to think about it. I exercise often and eat very little (not as much as my nutritionist says is the healthy range, in fact). I have eating disorders as well. I just feel so alone in this. There are no other prediabetics here in my town-- or if there are, they keep it quiet like I do. I feel very...
  • I'm out. The change to this site is not user friendly at all, not easy to navigate and the regulars have already left. I have patience so I waited it out a bit longer than most. It doesn't seem the people in charge care much about the complaints at all. I have complained thru the dailystrength facebook page and even though they answer back nothing has changed. I know several others have done this...
  • Tonight I had two whole wheat beef wraps, then a couple of hours later, went out for dinner, grilled chicken salad with beets, spinach, cheese and artichoke dip with small fried bread pieces, about 8. And a handful of fries. Then I had 6 pieces of brownie balls, filled with melted chocolate, dusted with icing sugar and dripping in caramel sauce. I finished off the caramel sauce too. My blood...
  • do any of you use sugar substitute or regular sugar when drinking coffee hot tea iced tea etc etc??? if you use a sugar substitute which do u use??
  • Before trying some "new" treatment program be sure you talk it over with your doctor and dietician and make sure it's a good fit for you and your health history. I see a handful of people here and across the internet making promises that simply cannot be fulfilled long term. Remember that what works for one may or may not work for you, but you need to speak to your trusted doctors first because...
  • Hello Everyone! First off I want to say how proud I am of all of you for coming together to support each other. I recently was struggling with obesity and pre-diabetic blood glucose.
