I've seen some posts in the forum about long fasts, but has anyone tried intermittent fasting? The Men's health article piqued my interest, and non-diabetic friend was raving about it, so I've tried…Continue

bigmo1234 replied to Samia's discussion 'What kind of foods do you all eat?'
"Samia: regarding the Endo: I was diagnosed at 19, and referred to the Pediatrician Endo. at Kaiser. I was a little old but he was the best in his Department. I stayed with him for about 15 years before he finally referred me to a good adult Endo.…"

guitarnut replied to bigmo1234's discussion 'Intermittent Fasting'
"My problem is eating when I'm actually hungry, instead of just snacking because I'm bored or tired. When that happens, I fill myself up on water so there's no room for unnecessary eating. My biggest problem is meals, when I'm…"

Sarah replied to bigmo1234's discussion 'Intermittent Fasting'
"hum, how is that possible to not get blood sugars to fluctuate over 30 points/day? even non diabetics BG's while eating fluctuate more then that. I prebolus, low carb too, no on pump, still on MDI's, but mine fluctuate, I never go above…"

"I am watching and waiting for the pancreum pump in design stage now where he says the three modules of insulin, CGM and glucagon can be selectively chosen in each three day attachment. see pancreum.com As for fasting, I do that so much, it is more…"

Brian (bsc) replied to bigmo1234's discussion 'Intermittent Fasting'
"I routinely do Intermittent Fasting. I think it has some real benefits. Sure, it is claimed to enable you to stay lean, dropping calories without dropping your metabolism. But I am diabetic. It "forces" me to a certain discipline. Fasting…"

"I have considered it, but my insurance (Kaiser) is behind the cutting edge pumps, they have Mini Med offered. I really like my freedom from being connected to something, but will consider it when a pump and CGM combo device comes to market....wonder…"

Cocheze replied to bigmo1234's discussion 'Intermittent Fasting'
"After reading your numbers, you should really consider insulin pump therapy. I do low-carb, 50 grams a day, high fat and protein along with insane amounts of cardio and my sugars rarely fluctuate over 30 points a day. I don't think it matters…"

bigmo1234 replied to bigmo1234's discussion 'Intermittent Fasting'
"yes, that was my first thought too---and burning fat first thing in the morning (on an empty stomach) also made sense, as opposed to "snacking" before a workout. This all just adds up more when you do it, and see/feel the benefits. The…"

Putertech replied to bigmo1234's discussion 'Kaiser Dropping Levemir, Forced Switch to Lantus'
"My husband's company switched insurance companies in Nov (stupid time of year!). New insurance company doesn't cover Levemir. I had switched from Lantus to Levemir in Sept (?). I feel it works much better than the Lantus did. My numbers…"

Mike replied to bigmo1234's discussion 'Kaiser Dropping Levemir, Forced Switch to Lantus'
"I hate that insurance companies are making decisions for us...and have never met us. I have Kaiser too. And I was taking Levemir before the start of this year, and now switched back to Lantus (which i prefer). Good luck, man!"

Jag1 replied to bigmo1234's discussion 'Kaiser Dropping Levemir, Forced Switch to Lantus'
"I was on Lantus soon after it was first released (2000 or so?) until I changed to Levemir a few years ago. Both with two injections a day. If you are having good control with Levemir, it is likely you'll see the same with Lantus. If you are…"
