    Diabetes and Exercise

    I need advice. I have been exercising for over a month daily but still have not lost any weight. I think part of the problem is the amount of calories I need to consume during the exercise so I dont go too low is too much. Sometimes I need 3 glasses of juice. I know that exercise is good regardless but if anyone has tips on what to do to maintain their glucose levels while not consuming high calorie drinks, I would love to hear about them. Thanks!

    I have all the symptoms for diabetes but my blood sugar is only 106. Can I still have diabetes or be developing it?

So, could I still have diabetes with....

    Am I diabetic?

    Last Thursday, I noticed a sweet taste in my mouth that comes and goes. Called Dr. on Friday, she said my glucose level was 88 from blood test 3 weeks ago and that I did not have diabetes or pre diabetes. I am very worried that I have ketoacidosis because it hasn't stopped and I googled "sweet taste in mouth" and this is what comes up.

    High Blood Sugar during steroid treatment

    I am having issues with my kidney, non-cancerous, Membranous Nephropathy, and have been prescribed Steroids by my Dr, a Nephrologist. My blood sugar, taken daily, spikes with just the least bit of sugar/carb intake, unlike before steroids, where sugar went up mildly. Dr and I expected this but has had anyone had similar experience?
