Ruh roh


I got bad news and a scedule of an appointment with my doctor as a result a little while ago. I am now considered to be pre-diabetic. I think my dietary choices will take a hit when we speak.

I don't know a lot about "diabeetus", but I do know that sometimes, you can reverse the diagnosis with a change of diet, and cutting out carbs, sugar, etc. How's your overall health other than this?

Good luck and keep us posted.

do not listen to dieticians whose school is funded by montesanto. Research ways to lower blood sugar by cutting carbs not eating meals with two carbs and metformin

Take 3,000 mg of fish oil a day, 200 to 400 mg of alpha lipoic acid, and 200 mcg's of Chromium Polynicotinate, daily.

Get those triglycerides in check big time. Of course, ask your doctor first..

Good luck. You're going to get a lot of advice. Finding out you are pre-diabetic is better than finding out you are diabetic.


Also, Pennington might have a study or two you can sign up for.

I am curious as well. I am trying to get mine down by eating less carbs etc. Last appt it was 105 but the doctor didn't seem to think it was a big deal.

I will have to wait until next Monday get the numbers. They did a primary blood panel(that showed 150ish), then last week did a blood level specific(four letter acronymn) that gives results for three months history.

Even a slight weight loss (just 5-7 lbs) has been shown to improve blood sugar levels. Exercise is as important as diet...def agree w/someone upthread who tells you not to listen to everything a hospital dietician or "diabetic educator" tells you. I've heard alarmingly bad advice coming from those folks.

Too many 'fake' products (sugar substitutes, special cookies, etc) are peddled to diabetics. Shop the perimeter of the grocery store--if its on an interior aisle, don't eat it. Swap out white flour items for whole grain/multigrain versions (pasta, tortillas, breads, cereal)...
