When must overweight men be screened for diabetes?

Do not take calcium supplements. All healthy unprocessed food contains calcium and all the other necessary minerals like magnesium.And zinc that you need. Small doses of zinc blocks osteoclasts. Cadmium plays a role in all these problems.

Can a 430lbs men go on a 1000 calorie diet by having 2 meal replacements and a very low calorie dinner all this with type 2 diabetes?

Possible: I recommend you do this under the supervision of your physician to monitor your electrolytes and adjust your diabetes medications as you start losing weight. Remember the best diet is one you can maintain for life so unless there is a medical reason to do something this drastic, I think you should talk to your doctor and come up with a sustainable plan. Good luck to you.
