hello. I'm new to this group. T2 since 2004 and it started with a thyroid tumor. Since then I have put on 50 lbs and cannot lose regardless of what I've tried. The Dr said "Metabolic Syndrome" but what else can I do. I've gotten my numbers down. My A1c just went from 6.1 to 5.9. But I need to lose some weight. Help !!!

I've started my diet 3 days ago. Let's see what appens. I've been making less insulin (Novorapid) and also less levemir(bg's are amazing. Between 3,2 and 7,6mmol/l). I've been on diet 8 months and i've lost almost 13 kgs. And i had a little break but I have started again. So wish me luck! When I eat light food and keep out of milk and bread. And potatoes, my diabetes is THE BEST ever. There are some things I really taste but can't eat. :)

Any advice on dramatic blood sugar rises after exercise? On a rare good day when I start out with a sugar under 150 and then exercise w/o eating and after intense exercise my sugar rises to 300+. It is so frustrating... Any info would be appreciated...

Has anyone heard of the Lyrica making you gain large amounts of weight? I have has a lot of people and a nurse and my dr. tell me that it does. He took me off of it and I have lost a few lbs. already. He put me on topomax instead but I am still having the pain. I think he is going to have to increase the dose. I know Lantus also makes you gain weight but he put me back on it because my sugars was 400-500 so I had no choice.

Alright, well. I've been overweight for years. And, about a year ago, I made an effort to lose weight. I lost 20 lbs on my own. Then, over the summer, I lost another 10 lbs (i was pre-diagnosis DKA). I gained some of it back once I got on insulin... but... I've lost 6 lbs since my last doctor's visit... so I've very happy! My goal is to lose another 30 lbs. Half way there!
