Hello to all. I have just been diagnosed with Type II Diabetes. My baseline glucose is 257(fasting). I was very worried about this. I am hoping you could refer a good site on the internet where I can find a lot of good info. Also you can help me by giving tips and also discounts on the drugs! :hypocritesmiley: . Thanks!

American Diabetes Association's site is very informative.

Just be careful with the information that you get from the net and always discuss this with your MD. ^_^

so far the only approved use for laser treatment is for diabetic wounds. other treatments by laser like regenerating insulin-producing cells in the pancreas are still unproven and are not universally accepted by the medical field.

^^ thanks a lot male spud..

what is your own opinion regarding this regenerating insulin-producing cells? suppose you undergo this kind of laser treatment, meron bang mga side effects? and what is the chance of your diabetes getting healed? i tried searching in the net also pero all i see is laser treatment for wounds of diabetes and amputation.

I was recently diagnosed with diabetes type II after a scary incident with me passing out. Di ko alam I've been suffering from diabetes for several years na. My sugar will shoot up and then go dangerously low. I'm glad I've finally found out what was wrong with me kasi for years, I would feel so fatigue.

I'm being treated by a doctor who deals solely on diabetics and a dietician...they work closely together. They worked up a meal plan/goal for me. I was surprised to see that I can still eat my rice, pasta, and bread but the key is moderation, portion, and exercise.
If you've had "too" much carb then they say work it out with exercise. They don't impose strict diet with no carbs at all kasi they said our body needs carbs to function.

So far since I've been diagnosed, my blood sugar has been on the norm range...I do have occasional slip up and it spikes up but that's because I had a can of Pepsi....my weakness and addiction!
And ginagawa ko, I would work out vigourously until my blood sugar is at the norm level again.


Hi!
How and where do you test for diabetes type 2? I undergo annual physical in our company and my blood sugar has always been normal. I just tested positive for glaucoma and i read that it's a symptom of diabetes-

I do remember reading somewhere that people with diabetes are twice as likely to develop glaucoma as are non-diabetics but I don't think there's enough evidence to support that claim.

Anyway, you may want to have a 75g oral glucose tolerance test done at a lab just to be sure.

i'm not a doctor but i can give an alternative dahil 2 of the medicines u have mentioned ay gnamit ko na rin and it's true mahal yung Avandamet ang generic name is Glibenclamide nasabi nga ni Smooth T ang gamit sa katawan nun and Gluban ang pwedeng mong ipalit as mentioned by Christina while Fornidd ang generic name is Metformin Hcl and Glucoform ang pwede ipalit. Hope that i was able to help you! :rolleyes:

maybe its because its hard to control your blood sugar thats why your doc give you a combination drug to furthe incease the stimulating power to your pancreas to produce insulin.... eventually if your body have a positive reaction to this and your bld sugar can be controlled na maybe your doc will bring you back to a single drug ...

When you go for a physical ask your MD to give you a glycohemoglobin test. The results will either confirm that you're either a diabetic or you just need corrective eye surgery. It's not that bad as long as you don't have a nearsighted intern who doesn't know how to properly draw blood. The last time I went in I ended up handing her the vials after drawing my own blood. It hurt less when I found my own vein (7 sec) :thumbsupsmiley: . She kept twisting the needle inside my arm trying to find the vein (40 sec to 1 min) :thumbsdownsmiley: .

Hmmmm for the past few years...Diabetes is classified in type 1 and type 2...i was informed by my friend form aust that soon the diabetes types will be obsolete...havent read much though... As for the diabetics...blood sugar control is of great importance...this will be one of the basis of your prognosis..especially in the future..you may be taking drugs at this moment but it would be better if you also have the guts to undergo diet modifications..sadly..uncontrolled blood sugar amidst proper medical treatment will eventually lead to daily insulin administration..in 10 yrs or less.. high sugar levels cause a lot of damages to the body..initially targeting sensitive and thin blood vessels and nerves..this may manifest as eye problems e.g diabetic retinopathy , sensation impairment or vessel problems e.g DVT...its is wise to discuss your treatment options to your doctors including secondary consultations which may include eye doctors,endocrinologists, neurologists or cardio....Commonly filipinos tend to disregard dieting as for they are already taking medications and just depend on the drugs itself but diet is one of the most important aspects in controlling elevated blood sugar...some test are useful in diagnosin and knowing the prognosis of your diabtes.. glycosylated hemoglobin shows the sugar level in the past three months..if it is properly controlled..there are available handy sugar blood level monitoring machines in the market for home use..it is useful in monitoring sugar levels at home without visiting the lab frequently..ask your MD about it..

This site looks more of diet control. Well in reality what the site recommends here is no difference to what any doctor would recommend.
A healthy diet with lots of fiber, low fat, high HDL... nothing new. This is not a cure.
