Why Is My Diabetes So Out Of Control Even If Im Taking My Medicine
Adjustments needed: If it is usually well controlled but now suddenly out of control- often it is due to an infection (ex. A wound/sore, bladder infection, pneumonia) or steroid us (knee injection, inhaled steroids, Prednisone pills) or new snack (ex. Started baking a lot lately, or love a new juice?). If it has never been well-controlled, then your regimen (pill and diet) needs adjustments. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Is there any connection between Prozac and diabetes? After being put on prozac, diabetes type II went out of control to the high side and it is still out of control even after switching to insulin (both long and short acting). Is there any connection betw
I : I am unaware of any clear association between Prozac and diabetes. Depression is more common in those with diabetes so anti-depressants are frequently prescribed for people with diabetes. Prozac tends to not cause weight gain. If you are convinced the Prozac increased your sugar (not at all likely) you can discuss stopping it and using a different anti-depressant. Some people get more motivated to test their sugar when their depression is better. I wonder if you are just testing your sugar more. If your a1c (the 3 month test of sugar control) went up a lot after the Prozac as compared to before the Prozac and you had no weight gain, that would suggest the Prozac did it. Discuss that with your doctor. See my blog post on exercise and depression and how to use Insulin below. Your doctor may benefit from reading the Insulin post. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Go see a doctor: Go find a good endocrinologist or diabetologist. You need to get your diabetes under control to ensure a healthy pregnancy. You should probably go on Insulin therapy. Since that is the safe treatment option during pregnancy. During pregnancy your AM fingersticks should be <95 and your fingersticks one hour after a meal should be <130. That is very tight control & will probably require Insulin ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Am 30 years of age and recently diagnosed with diabetes, is there any way i can control my diabetes without medicines at this stage ?
Depends: On how severe your diabetes is. If you have type 1 diabetes, you need Insulin and there's no 2 ways about it. If you have type 2 and your sugars are not terribly elevated, you might be able to control this (even reverse it!) with aggressive lifestyle change - diet, exercise, weight loss. Work with a physician who you trust. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Type 2: On occasion type 2 diabetes may be improved via diet, exercise and weight loss but it is unlikely that type 1 will be controlled or managed this way and could lead to excessively high sugar levels with eventual long term complications. Tight control is currently the best way we have of minimizing these. ...Read more
Not enough: When someone with diabetes needs medication, then weight management, diet, exercise, and proper sleep are part of that prescription also. Depending on the physician, oral medication may be an option (often start w/insulin sensitizing agent), though occasionally insulin. When doing well with lifestyle change medication can sometimes be weaned. ...Read more
