    Hello, My name is Chris and I am a 41 year old male. Recently, my doctor tells me I am "pre-diabetic" or that I have a "glucose intolerance" after my A1C test came back at 110 mg/. Of course, this concerned me greatly. She told me to cut down on carbohydrates, eliminate sodas, and exercise...
  3. Diabetes Complications
    Hey all, I am doing research on type 2 diabetes for a research project and this question has been bugging my mind for quite a while. My question is, since type 2 diabetics are insulin resistant, how does their body cells receive glucose as fuel? I always wondered how type 2 diabetics don't...
  4. Diabetes Diet and Nutrition
    I thought that a small bowl of Wheaties (about 1/3 cup) with unsweetened almond milk would be OK for me. My glucose was 87 before eating breakfast this morning, then 15 minutes after eating my glucose was 145. Questions: 1) I guess I'm not supposed to check until an hour after eating. So...

After a brief moment in the limelight they all seem to fizzle and we go back to pricking our fingers. I've taken some time to contact a few researchers and will see...
  6. Diabetes Diet and Nutrition
    I'm a 37 year old sedentary worker who used to have a bad diet. My dad had type 2 diabetes and I've been feeling major swings between meals. If I don't eat every 30 minutes I get extremely bad brain fog (can't even remember 5 digits). So last month I started exercising and went on a low carb...

  11. Diabetes Treatment
    OK, I am fairly new to this, but for some weird reason, when I prick my fingers, only a teeny tiny drop of blood comes out, not even enough for the freestyle freedom meter to read (requires the least amount of blood out of any meter on the market). sometimes I prick it and nothing at all comes...
