Meat and veggies : Eat only meat or fish or cheese or eggs or poultry and low starch veggies, drink only water. In other words avoid all carbs, carbs will only briefly raise your sugar levels and then you will get hungry again.

If you taking to much insulin will that make lose weight and when you get up in the morning and your blood sugar be 69 to 78 do you still take insulin?

Hypoglycemia: Hypoglycemia can cause permanent brain damage. Brain cells can only use glucose for energy. I don't recommend too much insulin for anything. When your blood sugar is low to normal in the morning fasting you make sure you eat breakfast after taking your doctor-prescribed dose of insulin. If you are ill, vomiting or not eating, you cut your insulin dose in half and call your doctor. ...Read more

Exercise: Exercise and stick to your diet. Only you can make the difference in what you eat or don't eat. With practice, you can learn to overcome the hunger pains. They diminish greatly after the first five days, so make it your goal to stick to your diet very strictly for the first five days. Everyone gets a bit more tired from exercise and dieting. Take a nap. Good luck! ...Read more

What is a good carb intake to lose weight and keep blood sugar from dropping too low? This happened with a fad diet I tried. I am not a diabetic.

What is a good carb intake to lose weight and keep blood sugar from dropping too low? This happened with a fad diet I tried. I am not a diabetic.

QUALITY NOT QUANTITY: The more complex carbs are better in this regard. White flour carbs are very quickly absorbed and can cause a sudden surge in Insulin levels, which will invariably drop you like a bad marriage within a few hours. More complex carbs will get absorbed slower, hence preventing or decreasing Insulin spikes. As a rule of thumb, never eat carbs by themselves, no more than 20-30 grams per meal. ...Read more

I'm 26. 65 kilos.Started useing metformin to lose weight.I have normal blood sugar.Will it hav any bad symptoms  now or later when i stop using it?

Don't stop: Continue increasing the metformin in steps to minimize any potential side effects. The most effective dose is a total of 2000 mg/day in divided doses with meals. Don't stop even if your glucose returns to normal. It won't drop below normal due to metformin alone, and it has many beneficial and preventive effects other than just glucose levels. ...Read more
