i am 23 years old
I have been diagnosed 2 months and half ago.
does taking dexasone tablets(contains cortisone)a reason for developing diabetes ?
I took it a year ago before developing diabetes (i continued taking it for a month)
my doctor told me i am in the honeymoon two months after diagnosed.
i was taking insulin mixtard 30 ... after honeymooning i decided not to take insulin and watch my food and make exercises
my levels without insulin:
waking up : 80 to 90
after launch(2 hours) :less than 155
before sleep :less than 140
if i eat any sweat it reaches 250
so should i continue not taking insulin or take low dose
what should i do in the honeymoon phase ?
how will i know that honeymoon ended ?
should i take vitamin B12 ? my doctor didn't tell me to tak it
will i face any complications even if i control my diabetes !
or all is right as long as i conrol my diabetes
i read informations about foods that makes ur blood glucose level go low
u can google blood type diet to find it.
i found for blood typ B :
"Corn, buckwheat, sesame seeds, peanuts and lentils are known to cause weight gain and affect the metabolic rate of people with blood type B. They may also result in problems like hypoglycemia, fatigue, and water retention. Your blood sugar level may also go down after you eat a meal comprising one or more of these foods
Wheat also should be avoided because it contains lectins that bring down insulin efficiency and hamper the fat burning process of the body."
so such informations about blood type diet are right ?!
Steroids increase blood glucose.
Yes, you need to take low insulin doses. Great you're testing frequently. Non-diabetic BG is in the 80's. While people without diabetes have BG increases, they quickly go down. The generally accepted info is BG over 140 causes damage & the damage is cumulative. Doing what you can to keep BG in the normal range will prevent further burn out of your beta cells & extend the honeymoon phase. You'll know it's ending or has ended when BG increases & you require more insulin.
Don't attempt to control diabetes based on a blood type diet. BG certainly won't go down eating corn, a high carb food.
Reducing carbs is the dietary approach that works.
You need to test and record. Test before meals. Test after meals. Give the record to your doctor's team of helpers.
You need insulin for meals because all carbohydrates (milk, grains, pasta, cakes, breads, fruits) will spike your blood sugar.
Corn will spike you, not as high as fruit will, but it will raise your blood sugar.
Vegetables will help keep the blood sugar the lowest it can be, but that is not all you should eat. They, too, are carbohydrates - just less spiky.
Do not eat a diet based on blood type. Eat a diet in which you count the grams of carbohydrates you are eating and you figure out an insulin unit to carb gram ratio of fast acting insulin for each meal. You need to learn your ratio.
You can do trial and error with small amounts of food. But you cannot learn how far down fast acting insulin reduces your blood sugar unless you get your blood sugar to 180, take one unit, and 3 hours later test (without having eaten). Then you will have an idea of your insulin sensitivity. These numbers change through life.
You can research your own spike to different foods, always using 5-7 grams of a kind of food, testing before, and testing an hour later. You will then know how much fast acting insulin you will need per grams of that food. You will spike fast to fruit; milk will delay the spike. Work with small grams, small units of insulin and get assistance from your doc's team. Hope he has one!
And best wishes to you!
