I really do not know. I have no butt. My legs are really small in muscle. My left hand has no web meat or muscle. My right hand a little bit. The 101 diabetic med thing that I read I did not find anything about muscle loss and just a bit about weakness. I do have back problems and a S curve if looking at an xray from the back. I thought about the changes with my first big weight loss and was on insulin then switched to oral meds when I was down to injecting 2-3 units. I tried Metformin but it tore my stomach up really bad. I have an appointment with my doctor next Monday and will see what he can tell me. Might ask about going back on insulin but I had muscle loss with that. I try to be as active as I can and walk with my dog most days about a mile and a half. Lifting weights are mostly the same as everything else. The longer I do it the more difficult it gets. May have some very small gains in the beginning but then it just seems I hit a wall that starts to push back at me and the same thing I was doing last week takes way more effort. I am not doing that ultra low carb diet and yesterday I had 1/4 cup steel cut oats with no sugar added coco mix and a heaping teaspoon of peanut butter for breakfast. A baked boneless, skinless chicken breast seasoned with garlic salt and black pepper on 2 slices of no sugar added wheat bread. And last night I had a salad kit and a salmon filet seasoned with garlic salt and black pepper. Bed time snack was a Boost glucose control shake. I am out of fruit now but have on average 3 bananas a week and blue berries. And most times some cut up fruit mix. Some times I have plain yogurt and mix in unsweetened apple sauce. But my store does not carry the yogurt I used to get. Could go back on my egg white omelet breakfast cooked in olive oil with spinach and mushrooms and a dash of hot sauce with salt and black pepper. 90-95% lean beef patty for lunch with green beans and maybe a small amount of brown whole grain rice for lunch. Mixed green salad with a chicken breast like above with out the bread or with steamed broccoli and cauliflower. My snacks are either Boost shakes or Adkins snake bars. I do break my diet when I try to eat more and do the bad stuff. Pizza, burgers, ect. But sometimes just get pork, chicken, or turkey meat with no sauce from the BBQ place. Just keep trying and not doing anything that has any results other than weight gain or loss. Just was thinking that something to do with my diabetes may have broken down and that is not providing what I need to my muscles.
Think you so much for all the time and the replies. I do appreciate it more than you can know.
