Default About Fitness supplement

I think I saw some thread/section regarding fitness for diabetes. But I cant find it again after searching for the past weeks.

I would like to get some information from experience D-ers on which supplement is good and which others we should avoid.

Also, whether there are any side effect for consuming these supplement such as, Kidney's trouble and etc.

If there are threads about this issue, please help me with the link.

There is no one size that fits all. Do research what supplements will be beneficial for you before you take the plunge.

Hello skb, thanks for stopping by.

I'm consuming isolated whey protein with 0% sugar and 0%carb right now. I did test before and 30mnt after, seems like good. No spike founded. However, I wonder whether it is good for our kidney. Some said that we should not put more "work" to our kidney. But some said, its no related between consuming Whey Protein with Kidney workload.

BTW, I consumed a gain-mass whey once. Its only 45gr of carb and it only took 15 minutes to spoke my blood sugar from 95 to 225
I know its stupid but I was trying to gain some weight,... hahahah

Having protein in your kidney is not a good think. The need for protein depends on how your body is using it if you are exercising then the protein will be used to help repair and build muscle. If you are eating meat in every meal then you don’t need to supplement. But if you are exercising and are eating high fat it may help some good supplemental protein like whey to build muscle. Some even use it at night to combat the dawn phenomena, but it will not help if you’re trying to be in ketosis.
