Coolsculpting, Belly Fat And Diabetes. Is There A Benefit?

I have type 2 diabetes. My A1C fluctuates between 5.3 and 6.4. I walk about 25 miles per week and go to the gym 3 times a week. I am not overweight by much, but I have belly fat that I cannot seem to get rid of. I have heard that type 2 diabetes is directly related to belly fat, so would cool sculpting benefit me in my quest to win the fight with my A1C? Continue reading >>

    Hi all
    I am in real need of some serious help.Let me tell you a bit about myself in the hope that someone out there can help and understand my dilema! I have been Type 1 for nearly 25 years, I am a woman aged 50 and am currently on Humulin s pre meal and Insulatard pre bed,was previously on novorapid and lantus but got it changed as sugar levels were awful!My last HBA1C was 8.The last 2 years have been very difficult to cope with controling high blood sugars and continous weight gain despite trying every diet under the sun,that includes low carb,slim fast,atkins you name it ive tried it but i have never been able to achieve more than a few pounds loss and then my enthuisiasm wanes and then my love of food takes over and beats me every time as I have very little willpower and a family who are diet sabatours.hehe.My problem is I have the knowledge and know exactly what i should and shouldnt be eating and what exercise i should be doing and I try to do it all but I just cant maintain it for long enough to achieve the 3stone loss I dream of.I am reaching the point now where I feel it is becoming an impossible dream and that diabetes is finaly after all these years beating me as I dont feel in control anymore,its just getting harder and harder.I am generaly a positive happy person but am feeling so tired of it all,and despair of ever feeling fit and healthy and motivated again.Would welcome any thoughts or inspiration from anyone who understands how ime feeling
    Many thanks

    Re: TYPE 1 WHO JUST CANT LOOSE WEIGHT
    Hi binney,
    I'm a type 1 also and find it really hard to lose weight. I'll do the whole cut the calories and up the exercise routine but the pounds do not go easily. Any of my friends try the same thing and they lose three-four pounds a week. I then get disheartened and stop. It's incredibly frustrating.
    I've had my thyroid etc checked and everything was normal. My doctor keeps telling me it's the insulin that's causing this. I suffered from an eating disorder when I was younger and know all to well the effects of stopping your insulin for the sake of being slim!
    I find the only way that I can lose weight is to really restrict the number of calories I'm having (within reason) and exercise like crazy. Even then it is slow and the better my diabwtes control the harder it is!
    All I can say is stick at it. It may take a while bit it will happen. Also try to find a diet that isn't too hardcore so it's easier to stick to long term. Once the weight does start to come off I fond that it does so quite steadily - albeit at a slow rate!
    Take care and good luck!
