You said:I have to agree if you do not modify your behavior after many years of bad nutrition and not exercising, you will have type two, so " fault " lies therein. Part of living with diabetes means Bill Spurr must check his own blood sample once a day to monitor blood sugar levels. The reason my doctor called me with the diagnosis is that I’d had my blood taken as part of a routine physical. But, even though he started me on medication right away, he said there was reason for optimism. Aside from taking my own blood once a day to monitor blood sugar levels, I started on two medications: a pill three times a day and a small, painless, injection in the stomach each morning. And the weight started to fall off, partly because I was eating better, partly because I started exercising, but also partly because one of the side-effects of the pills is that, to put it delicately, you better be within 30 seconds of a toilet at all times.
There’s a waiting list to spend a day at the Diabetes Management Centre, which is run by Capital Health. She checked our feet for sensation by poking them with a wire, told us how to cut our toenails and to check our feet every day for any changes.
From the dietitian, we learned that while no foods are absolutely prohibited for diabetics, we better start paying attention to food labels. If I'd had any idea what was going on with me or known why it was I was overweight despite eating an overall healthy diet and being a very active teen, then maybe it would be my fault, so to speak. As a very obese T2, I have myself experienced quite a bit of variability in my insulin resistance in the 12 to 36 hours after strenuous exercise. There you spend time with a nurse, a dietitian, a physiotherapist and a social worker, all in a classroom setting with about a dozen other people. She instructed us to carefully dry between our toes because having water pool in there is no good.
In the first year, they scare you to death, the second year they work you to death and the third year they bore you to death. I didn't have that information, so my rational side says I can't be to blame (sometimes my self loathing side says otherwise).
You, of all people, should know that 33.8% of Americans are obese, and if obesity caused diabetes, why aren't all of them diabetic?
I got teased about being thin aaaaaaaaall the way through elementary school.Within the first year post-puberty I gained about twenty-five or thirty pounds of body fat and have been fighting my weight ever since.
As these muscles will all each have varying levels of glucose stored, these cells all must have the ability to either take on more glucose or ignore the body insulin so as not to poison themselves. After 30 days in hospital, using a walker I barely made it once around the hospital inside around the nursing station floor of rehab.
I enjoy the mix of participants in our discussions, I learn from everyone.Of course, in a community of over 20k people, there are a few who are not as accepting as most, but it comes with the territory. It's easy to see and understand why T2's have strong emotional reactions to all the misinformation floating around, and the shame and blame game, and those reactions are totally justified. Type 2, the most common, means increased exercise, food restrictions and usually some kind of medication. Learning about diabetes made me feel like a first-year law student, except at diabetes school, after they scare you to death they bring in a social worker to calm you down. If you include ALL people with diabetes, it only comes to about 8% of the population, so 25% of Americans are obese, may or may not have bad eating and exercise habits, and miracle of miracles, they DON'T have diabetes, and most of them never will.YOU are the kind of doctor I'm scared of, because if YOU don't know your stuff, who will be there when someone needs REAL help? I had one huge ovarian cyst when I was in my twenties, horribly irregular periods (anywhere from 21 days to 65 days apart, lasting anywhere from three days to a month, yes a continuous month of menstruation -- I thought I was going to bleed to death!) Doctors had no name for what was wrong with me. On top of this, current theory suggest that if skeletal muscle's will not absorb nay more glucose, the insulin or the cells response to insulin must be defective rather than it being a logical response to prevent overstuffing the glucose.The storage capacity of the skeletal muscle cells is finite.
Your post reminds me that all T2's should be engaging in as much exercise as we can tolerate, to aide our cells in taking up and burning glucose rather than resisting it due to glucose saturation and sending our blood glucose soaring.
I do know where you are coming from, I was mis-dx with T2 for years, but I find your post discriminatory as well? But T1's have their own emotional issues, too, and those are not dealt with nearly so often. If the loosehead That gives me hope, because the tide is turning But remember what I told you Tuesday a Republican is going to trigger a revolution or a civil war in the Democratic Party: progressives vs. They are not as current theory would suggest are medical infinite motion machines taking on more and more glucose.
It's quite the vicious cycle, isn't it?I've already cut carbs way back, but based on reading I've been doing over the past several years, I think some of us (especially people like me with Native American genes in the mix) are really designed to do 14 or 15 hours per week of strenuous exercise. One of them is being lumped into the shame and blame game, which they rightfully feel they don't deserve (but T2s don't deserve it, either), and another is the toll that the stressful T1-enforced lifestyle takes on parents and kids (and former kids), such that they really concentrate on their own issues, and are not particularly aware of T2 issues. I took control, and I'm proud of that.I didn't choose to be born to an otherwise healthy father who is type 2, either, while we're discussing the subject. Along with the decades of borderline anemia, the auto-immune thyroid disease, the reactive hypoglycemia, and now the T2, maybe, just maybe, I should have been staying away from carbs, especially starches, because my body is too screwed up to handle them? When I have done that much (as a martial artist, later as a swing dancer, and then as a gym rat) I saw a big improvement in my health in general each time.Unfortunately, each time a serious injury (or surgery) cut my activities short, but I can still walk and I can still do chair exercises.
We're all human beings dealing with a potentially dangerous and difficult disease, after all.
T1 is truly a wild roller-coaster ride (except in the case of AR, and I don't know how he does it) and while they are so busy fighting it, learning about T2 is not high on their list of priorities.I don't know if anyone notices, but I am very careful in my posting NOT to take sides, and not to demean ANY type of diabetes, because in the end, while the causes and treatments may vary, it ALL sucks.
Yet in a distributed storage system like this that keeps human body hot to trot when the saber tooth tiger comes around the corner for a quick snack, overloading the cells with glucose on a system designed for starvation prevention and no internal optimization to prevent glucose overloading; saturation is a distinct possibility. Engaging in moderate, consistent exercise while avoiding injury seems to be the key for me in employing exercise as part of my diabetes program. The pre-Christmas party season also helped to put me back in the zone, so I stick to salad . And this war is going to be When you load a new map, you reset the gun the court yard immediately direct your party to run to the corner immediat In order to beat Carlito, there are two ways I have discovered.
Either go into the battle with two pistols, one of which is The Jamaica Public Service Company Ltd recently warned it could Therefore, even in a community where we may have 100 paying customers and 300 electricity cheats so 75 per cent of our power is stolen, we’re still obliged to serve the 100 customers .
Red meat bad, grapes and bananas and apple-juice good."We do so love to blame and shame the obese in this culture, but most of us have complex and complicated hormonal and biochemical stuff going on with our bodies that doctors barely understand.
Why, why, why can't we recognize and acknowledge that almost NO ONE would CHOOSE to be obese in a culture that HATES fat people?!?
