What exercises are good and how they work on the glucose.

Azurah replied to karatejoe's discussion 'stupid me'
"Lows are definitely scary! I'm not on insulin, but unfortunately I'm not safe from lows. Pizza and other carby foods sometimes give me reactive hypos. My reactive hypos can drop me into the 50s. Once the meter said 49. My pancreas randomly…"

Azurah replied to kittywitty's discussion 'Any thin Type 2s with normal metabolic profile?'
"I aim for keeping my post-meal numbers below 140, but now and then I eat something higher in carbs and my BG will go over 180, even over 200 depending on what I eat. I think my A1c is low because the lows sort of negated the highs when everything…"

Azurah replied to kittywitty's discussion 'Any thin Type 2s with normal metabolic profile?'
"Another thin type 2 here and diagnosed at 28 years old. I do not have metabolic syndrome or fit the profile for type 2. I had gestational diabetes when pregnant with my son at age 19 and weighed 80-90lbs until the last few months of the pregnancy. I…"

Azurah replied to guitarnut's discussion 'I'm Confused'
"I still have reactive hypos on occasion and my A1c is 5.5 and fasting usually in 80s and 90s. I take Metformin, watch carbs, and exercise. If anything, maybe I have some form of MODY, but it's not worth pursuing testing at this point. Just…"

Azurah replied to guitarnut's discussion 'I'm Confused'
"Not c-peptide. I don't remember the exact unit of measurement, but there was a fasting insulin level which was in the normal range and it was tested again during the OGTT and the number was outside of the normal range and flagged as…"

Azurah replied to guitarnut's discussion 'I'm Confused'
"You sound sort of like me. I don't fit the typical profile of a T2 either. My first experience with D was when I was 19, pregnant, and failed the OGTT. I wondered how the heck I had gestational diabetes when I was barely 100lbs (was 88lbs…"

Azurah replied to Leanne's discussion 'Would you date another diabetic?'
"My boyfriend and I are both T2. I'm 29 and he's 30, we've been together for 6 years. He had the big D first (since he was 13 or 14) and I was diagnosed just about 1 year ago. It's nice because we can relate and sometimes share…"

Azurah replied to DavidLenn's discussion 'Lowering High Blood Sugars Without Feeling Hypoglycemic'
"If your sugars are that high, the metformin probably WON'T bring them down the quickly. Please stay on it and give it a chance to work. You can also start working on your diet and by slowly reducing your carb intake. I didn't have hypo…"

Azurah replied to Mark Hully's discussion 'Is it possible to reverse type 2 diabetes?'
"I still feel that these stories of reversals are not the same thing as no longer having diabetes. I'm not trying to be negative, just realistic. I know of someone on another forum who had weight loss surgery and from what she reports, her…"
