I give up. My doc even said it doesn't matter what I eat. I think he is right, because when I eat healthy, and by healthy, I mean nothing refined, fish, some chicken occasionally, tofu, vegetables, rarely some fruit, no dairy (am allergic). I don't drink. I don't eat cookies, pasta, rice, potatoes, or any other refined or sugary foods.
I just saw my doctor this week. I have all these diabetic symptoms, yet, my AIC is low, and yet, my meter keeps giving me higher values. I guess anything under 200 isn't bad????
I am so disgusted with my body. I am tired of this. The only beverage I drink is water.
I am allergic to milk, so that cuts out a lot of foods.
I lost one pound. One pound in 2 months.
Not even worth noting.
But I keep hearing if I lose a significant amount of weight, this disease will get better. But my doc back in Indiana told me, with insulin
resistance, it is very hard to lose weight.
So HOW do I lose the weight????
I give up. I cannot affect this. I don't have the energy to even exercise anymore. I used to exercise a lot, and kept it up, and it made absolutely no difference.
Am I stuck like this for the rest of my life????
I am tired of the food thing. People tell me I eat too much, then people tell me I eat too little. I have tried 1800, 1600, 1200, and 1000 cals per day.
I thought diabetics were thin.
Not only for health reasons, I am tired of being fat. I look unattractive and am tired of being alone. It isn't like I have sat around
and ate potato chips and chocolates and sat on the sofa.
I am on 500m of Metformin a day, and my doc says I don't need more.
Why aren't there definite guidelines for this disease?
Call me frustrated,
