    https://sleepfoundation.org/sleep-news/the-biggest-losers-sean-algaier-talks-sleep-apnea If you are overweight with T2D, a key goal is to lose weight. You lose weight, elevated blood sugar levels go down, your health improves. From my own experience, getting a good nights sleep is critical treatment for both obesity and Type 2 Diabetes. Have a sleep study done to be sure you are breathing properly at night.

    Feeling low levels but levels are fine

    Over the past year I have been feeling increasingly dizzy, lightheaded and having the most horrible headaches. For the past week or so I have decided to track my levels, although on a not consistent basis. And I test when I start feeling the symptoms but my levels are still in the 113 range.
