I can't ignore the fact anymore that I need to rid myself of these unwanted pounds. I am 5'4", approximately 215, Type 2 (on insulin and oral med) and need to get my 'betes in check. How do I start this process? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I also have problems with weight. My problem is carbs. I struggle with them "nightly,post 8pm" and usually loose. Recently my #'s are shamefully high. My a1c wil lbe through the roof. Just feel compelled to carb out at night. Advise! Thank you, Pete

I just found this group! I've been a type 1 for 13 years now, and have 3 kids, ages 5, 8 and 11. I haven't lost much weight since my 5 year old was born, so although I'm glad for the consistency and not gaining, its frustrating. I started symlin several months ago, but got off the habit during the summer when the kids were home. I'm trying to do it again, but I've found it doesn't seem to work as well as it did. I need to call my doc to see whats up.

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...
