Diabetics with reduced pancreatic function will likely require insulin for the rest of their lives.
The key to living a long and fruitful life, diabetes complication free, is learning to manage diabetes properly. You can’t know if you have truly normal blood sugars unless you actually test your blood sugars. Attempting to properly manage diabetes without testing your blood sugar is like driving a car at night without headlights. Cut the CARBS, ONLY eat fatty meats, coconut oil, butter, eggs,  leafy green vegetables and bone broth until your blood sugars are down into normal ranges. It really is simple,  don’t over complicate it,   Sometimes we complicate things so we can use it as an excuse, do not do it! IF you want to reduce blood sugars more quickly, it’s very simple, reduce the fuel for blood sugar,  carbohydrates and protein.
Note 1:  Keep in mind, as you eat lower carbs, you will need to adjust drugs and insulin requirements. I think that the diabetes educators and the nutritionists are well meaning but ultimately they are offering advice that is wrong for me and in fact harmful.
It seems unthinkable that no one else is sharing their personal journey with others in the ENTIRE state of NC. I guess what I’m asking is: do every single one of the writer of the blogs on healthy living noted in the following link have a license to dispense advice on diet and fitness? I’d already begun researching and testing, and told her if I ate that much carbohydrate, my blood sugar would be through the roof! Instead I ate under 100g of carbohydrate a day on a 3,200 – 3,600 calorie a day diet, and about 150g a day when eating 5,000+ calories a day (long bike-riding days of 3 to 5 hours of intense riding).
I now eat about 2,800 calories a day and 45-60g of carbohydrate most days, all from non-starchy vegetables and the very-occasional piece of sprouted-grain bread.
Steve Cooksey Post author April 30, 2012 at 6:37 pm Mose, my best advice to you is to see if you can find a paleo doctor on this site. By now, people who are diagnosed with type 2 diabetes – as well as many in the general population – know that the disease can lead to a host of medical issues, among them eye problems, kidney disease and nerve damage which may lead to amputations.
Cholesterol is a soft, waxy substance not readily soluble in water and produced within all cells in the body. Lipid abnormalities are dangerous because they are associated with an increased risk for blood vessel disease, especially heart attacks and strokes.
Consequently, physicians treating patients with lipid disorders first focus on management of the LDL cholesterol by reducing the number of particles coursing through the bloodstream.

Although reports have surfaced suggesting that the use of statins can have side effects like muscle pain, occasionally may affect memory and rarely may contribute to the development of diabetes, Dr. Beyond statins and other available medications which can reduce LDLs, he suggests patients make efforts to further reduce the triglycerides in the blood by significantly reducing their intake of saturated fats such as those found in fatty cuts of meat, fried foods, and most oils and butter, as well as reduce intake of carbohydrates. Handelsman says that yet another crucial factor in managing high blood fats is glucose control, particularly when it comes to ingestion of carbohydrates. To assist patients who are concerned about the collective impact of lipid disorders and diabetes on their health, Handlesman says the American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists (AACE) is creating an online resource called “Get to the Heart of It: Know Your LDL Goals” that would allow patients to learn about and assess their cardiovascular risk and identify a goal of LDL management. It is very important to recognize high blood sugar symptoms before anything worst will happen. It is highly important for all patients of diabetes to closely monitor their levels of blood sugar to get proper treatment at the right time. Moderate signs of high blood sugar levels: You will have a lethargic feelings or being dizzy and weak. Knowing high blood sugar symptoms can help you avoid not only diabetes but also further complications and other illnesses or infections.
Please do share this useful information with your friends and family by hitting one of the share buttons below. However Type 2’s may wean off of diabetes drugs as long as they maintain truly normal blood sugar. In addition to the Freestyle Lite, I am also a fan of Walmart’s Micro Reli-On, in my testing it matched the Freedom Freestyle Lite in accuracy. I think if this is true for me, it is probably true for others, but I can only speak for myself.
It should not be used as a substitute for any medical professional opinion, advice or prescribed medication nor should it serve as diagnosis or treatment of health problems. What is perhaps less known is that there is a direct relationship between diabetes and high lipid (fat) levels in the bloodstream. Cholesterol is necessary for normal cell and body function, however very high levels of it can lead to plaque buildup in arteries and eventually may cause blockage of blood flow.
In fact, prevention is key in reducing the occurrence of stroke or myocardial infarction (the medical term for a heart attack), which is more likely to be fatal in people with diabetes.
And getting the LDL under control is typically achieved through the use of statins, a medically prescribed class of medicines that lower LDL levels by blocking the action of a chemical in the liver that is necessary for making cholesterol.
Handelsman is quick to point out most people who take statins have few or no side effects and the benefits outweigh risks by far. For issues of an individual clinical nature please consult your physician, as medical advice will not be provided through this site.

People must take this illness with utmost concern for the maintenance of their body‘s health condition. You have to recognize those signs so that you can take advanced measures to control the levels of your blood glucose. Some of the severe signs of high glucose levels are loss of consciousness, extreme weakness or tiredness, rapid heart rate with a weak pulse and difficulty in understanding basic conversation. This will also trigger you to consult a doctor as soon as possible to get proper treatment and appropriate medications.
This condition, commonly referred to as lipid disorders, is caused by a combination of genetic predisposition and dietary intake and is an abnormality with both good and bad cholesterol and triglycerides. Triglycerides (TG) are a type of primary fat which provides energy to the appropriate tissues in the body. He is the medical director and principal investigator of the Metabolic Institute of America and an endocrinologist in solo private practice in Tarzana, California, where he developed and successfully utilizes comprehensive and unique multiple interventional approaches to the cardiometabolic high risk patient, preventing and managing obesity, diabetes and cardiovascular disease.
There is a need to identify these high blood sugar symptoms or hyperglycemia as otherwise known. Without proper treatment at the right time, you may lead to suffer from heart attack and stroke which must be avoided at all costs.
The pancreas produces insulin which allows blood glucose to lower down to its normal level and then releases them to supply energy to the whole body.
Getting instant help from a professional physician is a must in order to protect your overall health and body condition. If I eat that many carbs, I will need to take insulin and probably something like Actos again. In case of malfunction in the pancreas which will result to the production of small amount of insulin, the glucose becomes toxic to the body. When the body needs a source of energy, the liver breaks down glucose and signals the fat cells to release fatty acids it has stored as triglycerides, which are then metabolized into energy.
If this is not controlled it will affect all the organs in your body which can cause total breakdown. Oh, and I don’t need to take a statin any more either, for my cholesterol, which has improved. High levels of triglycerides in the blood have been found to worsen other lipids particles and contribute to plaque formation.
