L had more fats in my body . What should I have to do to reduce it?

Decrease fat: In order to decrease fat you need to eat less (decrease your caloric intake) and increase your metabolism (exercise more). You will not be able to work on getting rid of the problem areas of fat until you get down closer to your ideal weight.

I have incredible pain in the lower intestine after eating to the point I cannot walk or drive  any ideas what it is and what I can do to avoid it ?

Abdominal pain: Make a list of each and every symptom and the times they appear and their relationships to each other and to your dietary intake. Then take this with you along with a prior medical history and all your medications to a gastroenterologist and have them thoroughly evaluate you. This is quite abnormal, and if the pain is that severe you should go ASAP. Best wishes. ...Read more

How long do I have to fast before bloodwork? Im type 1 diabetic and sometimes my blood sugar goes low in the middle of the night and I have to eat. Is there anything i can eat to avoid having  to wait all day to eat anything in order to pass this blood wo

U can't with a low: If you have a low blood sugar in the middle of the night, you have to treat it. That would put a kink in morning fasting labs. My concern would be to prevent the lows; you shouldn't have to feed your diabetes to get thru the night. The problem is to sort out why you're having overnight lows and prevent them. Please discuss with ur doc. Fasting is going 8-12 hours without food. ...Read more
