Seriously, between diet/medicines/exercise use at least 2 and take control of your blood sugar. All 3 if needed or even the bariatric surgery, but do something and take control.

*hugs* Sounds like things suck right now. Have you tried eating very few carbs and more fat? You might be able to go off the insulin by doing that. Forgive me if you've tried that before.

At 228 pounds I don't think you need any bariatric surgery. You should be able to lose weight easily once you cut back carbs and eat more fat.

*hugs* I am sorry you are having such a hard time right now. Unfortunately as much as we might wish for it, there is no magic pill or surgery that is going to make diabetes go away. (I could be wrong, but I am not sure if the lapband surgery is always successful or that it is a permanent fix.) What needs to be done is control it. The easiest place to start is with your food. Diet is the one thing we have complete control over. As silvertiger said, cut back on carbs and add more fats. If you can't exercise right now that's OK, there are people on this forum that maintain tight control with virtually no exercise.

You have to take this beast by the horns and show it who is the boss!! It sounds like you are pretty overwhelmed right now. Try not to feel like you have to do every thing at once. That is just adding more stress. One step at a time. Start with your food, give lc/hf at chance for a while, get back on your plan, and see how you feel then. If you need ideas of what to eat a good place to start is Dr. Andreas Eenfeldt's site: The Diet Doctor. The Atkins diet induction is a good plan for diabetics also.

Hope you feel better soon!

I'm new here but I just have to chime in--there is no magic pill or surgery that will make diabetes go away. I have a friend who had her stomach stapled in the hope of getting rid of diabetes and losing weight. It didn't work. She still had diabetes and now she was courting bilemia from purging because she never felt full and ate more than she should. She lost a bit of weight but put it right back on as her stomach stretched again. 2 years ago she went very low carb. Within a year she had lost the weight and her blood pressure meds and was back on metforman. She gradually added back a few carbs but still keeps a low carb diet and is doing OK.

Get yourself a long term goal and stick to it. No one likes the limitations this disease puts on us. You have to figure out who you are going to give the power to run your life. The disease or you. You have to fight or give up and if you give up the disease wins. You are the one in charge of your own destiny

Unfortunately, the answer is the same as we discussed before: carbs. There's just no way around it.

Once you break the carb addiction (and it happens quicker than you might realize), the cravings lessen, blood sugar goes down, side effects go away, all sorts of great things happen.

Without cutting your carbs, not much is going to change.

Star, I am new here and still have a lot to learn but from what I know about this forum, it is an awesome place to start so I have an idea, Lets take it one thing at a time and I promise you will see things start to turn around for you!

Have you looked into the low carb high fat diet? I just started it and so far so good. Let me know if you want and we can pick something and start, you don't have to do it alone! Check out the LCHF diet, one day at a time and it will improve. I will even check on you daily to keep you honest heck I can even complain if you don't, I will practice my nag, nag, nag lol!
