Diabetics

The thing about being Diabetic is that its not a HEALTH concern in the traditional sence. I have Type 1 diabetes. However, I dont have any REAL health concerns. I dont have high blood pressure, cholesterol my kidneys and liver are fine. I dont drink, smoke and my OVERALL HEALTH is fine. In other words, its not the diabeties that gets you its what happens to tyou BY NOT TAKING CARE OF YOUR DIABETIES.

Whenever I get my blood work done (which I need to do BTW) there are no red flags. Reason for this is i take care of myself. I look at Deiabties as a double edged sword. It can eiether force you to have a healthy life or if you dont care about yourself, really fuck up your health. As long as your are eating right, taking your medicine, living the clean life ( not drinking doing drugs) steroids are no more a danger to you than the non-diabetic. BUT BE FORWARNED!! This is all dependant on you.
 
Stats r same bro. Sugar tad high. But lot better. Just curious of any issues people may have. Thanjs for info
 
Listen to Mateo. He knows this very well. He is a diabetic, but takes care of himself very well. If you take the right precautions for your diabetes, you should have nothing to worry about
 
I managed to back my numbers out of the diabetic range watching my diet and exercising. I was on Metformin, and ran out. 2 weeks later I had bloods for an annual physical and all the bad numbers were good. It is possible to get off medication with Type 2 but you're always going to be at risk. Beyond that, you shouldn't see other health areas being affected if you're taking care of yourself. It's un or bad managed diabetes that runs amok on your body. And yes Mateo is going to give you the straight dope on this. He helped me out when I first came onto the boards.
Good luck.

If only more people were like you....

Good for you. It seems that type 2 is self inflicted. Maybe the world should just run out of Metformin. People would have to become responsible or else. Might even take a load off of the health system.
 
My brother is a type 2 diabetic, also taking medication for it every morning. His diabetes is certainly his fault, he started gaining weight around age 40 and nearly made it to 300 pounds before finally waking up and realizing he didn't want to spend the rest of his life as a 5'9", 280 pound slug, but by then it was too late. By the time he was back down to around 230 or so, he was diagnosed as diabetic (this was recently) and was put on medication for that, as well as high blood pressure. He's my half-brother, and genetically, we're as different as night and day. I've read that higher testosterone levels increase insulin sensitivity (which as I understand it is the problem for type 2 diabetics, their bodies have decreased insulin sensitivity, causing their blood sugar level to stay higher than normal) and my intent is to get him started on TRT also, when he comes back to my place after Thankgiving. My thought is that it's possible his blood sugar may get back down to normal after he starts, because of the higher level of testosterone in his system may increase his body's sensitivity to insulin, allowing him to stop taking his medication provided he keeps his diet reasonable. Even if it doesn't, I'm hoping increasing his testosterone level will at least help him get the motivation and energy to get in shape and stay active and fit.

I'd have him lose more weight first.
 
Well. Mines genetic. Lost enuf family bacause of it. And none were self inflicting. Just a family matter i wanna get control of to live a little longer than them. But wanna GET SWOLE in the process. Lmao.
 
My brother's is almost certainly "self-inflicted", he just quit giving a shit, ate everything in sight, quit doing anything at all. He spent 20 years in the military but his last 5 were at a shitty command, under a shitty commander who fucked him on evals and ruined his chance at advancement, which caused his pension check to be about 2/3 what he was expecting, and staying in wasn't an option. That's was in 07 and he spent the next 6 years doing nothing but gaining weight and I'm just now getting him interested in maybe living more than another 5 or 10 years. My argument was that, if he's so pissed at the military, why die early and let them off the hook for that pension check? Do your best to live another 50 years, and write a letter to your old CO every month saying "Fuck you, I'm still here!".
 
Anyone on here. I dont take Insulin. Just metformin. Any issues any have had feel free to comment.

Have you been working out for a while? The only thing you should have to be careful of is if your not used to working out you may have some hypo spells...in which case you'd have to reduce your metformin.

I honestly don't know many people who eat good and exercise regularly that are on metformin. Usually if your disciplined enough to eat right and exercise right the type 2 diabetes takes care of itself.
 
Type 2 is even MORE LIFESTYLE controlled than type 1 . As a matter of fact, it's all lifestyle.

this is correct.

a lot of times it 'runs in the family' because the entire family has poor lifestyle choices. we typically follow what we see from our parents growing up. both parents are tennis players, the kid will grow up playing tennis. both parents eat healthy, kids tend to eat healthy. parents eat slop, kids will eat slop

the whole 'it runs in my family' thing with type 2 is usually a cop out
 
Well. About 120-140. A1c varies. Ill go one time it b 5.8. Next time in the 7s. Im getting blood work again on dec 5th. C if its changed while ive been running test e.
