    Blood sugar diet

    I found out I had T2 diabetes in 2012. I've just started the (Michael Mosley) 8-week blood sugar diet - I discovered it after reading "Fixing Dad". For those who don't know about it, it's a low-carb, low calorie program that is based on the Mediterranean diet. After 8 weeks, you adapt it, sticking to the Mediterranean principles the whole week but only going low calorie for 2 days out of 7 per week. I'm on day 4 and finding it surprisingly easy.

    How long does it take to get Bydureon out of your system? I was on Bydureon for about a month and stopped taking it because of severe stomach problems.

    Missed Insulin

    Hello, I have a quick question. I am a Type 1 diabetic who takes Humalog and Lantus. Last night, I can honestly say I do not remember if I took my lantus (night time insulin) prior to me falling asleep. This AM, my sugar levels were elevated which led me to believe I did not. I did take 5 units (half of my usual dosage) at 7:30AM. My question is when I get to my usual time to take lantus which is between 8 and 9 at night, should I only take 5 units and then wait a full 24 hours to take my normal....

    Bydureon causing nausea, acid reflux, and stomach pain

    Is there a way to counteract the nausea, acid reflux, and stomach pain caused Bydureon? I am being changed from Bydureon to Trulicity, but I read that Trulicity also causes nausea, acid reflux, and stomach pain. Is there something that I can do to counteract these symptoms? I read at the Trulicity website that these symptoms generally subside after the first 2 weeks, is this true? I have taken Bydureon for 9 weeks and the nausea, acid reflux, and stomach pain symptoms have not subsided. Can I look....

    A1c/Fasting Glucose:

    Weird blood results last three draws, all about 6 months apart (listed in order). About a 12hr fast. Fasting Glucose 108, A1c 5.3 Fasting Glucose 108, A1c 5.4 Fasting Glucose 109, A1c 5.4 Accordingly, the glucose puts me smack in the prediabetic range, but the A1c is confusing. Me, tall/thin (BMI 22.5), age 48, exercise 4-5X week Eat extremely well due to cholesterol…if cardboard were a fruit group, I’d be all over it… Thoughts?
