Fat Loss Calculator: http://bit.ly/2O6rsdo The carb cycling diet is one of my favorite diets because it is one of the fastest way to burn fat while retaining as much muscle as possible. Most people don't know that carb cycling is actually a form of ketogenic dieting. The ketogenic diet is a diet that is lower in carbohydrates, which makes our body convert more dietary fat and body fat in to keytones in the liver. Which it then goes on to use for energy. Like I've said in many of my videos the human body prefers to use carbs as its primary source of energy. You're body won't produce too many keytones on a high carbohydrate diet, because your body won't need extra energy from fat due to the fact that its getting its energy from the more preferred carbohydrates. The only way for our body to use more fat for energy is by not having its preferred source there all the time. Eliminating carbs completely, however can have many drawbacks on our health and well being. Protein, carbs, and fats are all important and necessary for our body. So in comes the cyclical ketogenic diet aka carb cycling and also known originally as the a

Ketogenic Diet For Type 2 Diabetes: Does It Work?

Type 2 diabetes is a condition affecting blood sugar levels that can be managed by following a healthful diet and maintaining a healthy weight. People who are obese can reduce their risk of developing diabetes by eating a balanced, nutritious diet. Following a diet that is full of vitamins and minerals and low in added sugars and unhealthful fats can help people to lose some of the extra weight. People who lose 5-10 percent of their body weight can lower their risk of developing diabetes by 58 percent. For people with diabetes or people with pre-diabetes, losing the same amount of body weight can help provide a noticeable improvement in blood sugar. For some people, the ketogenic diet is an effective way to control their diabetes. It has been shown to lower blood glucose levels as well as reduce weight. Contents of this article: What is the ketogenic diet? Foods containing carbohydrates, such as bread, pasta, and fruit, are the body's main fuel source. The body breaks the food down and uses the resulting sugar (glucose) for energy. A ketogenic diet is a high-fat, very low carbohydrate diet. It was initially developed and recommended for children with epilepsy. The diet recommends t Continue reading >>

    My husband has cholyangiocarcenoma,(primary liver cancer of the bile tract). After his third treatment with Gemzar/Cisplatin, his sugar levels went up dramatically. I have read of Chemotherapy induced diabetes as a possibility. Has anyone else had this happen? Is there such a thing? Is the high sugar levels an indication of pancreatic involvement? A nurse friend told me it could indicate spread to the pancreas. Any comments?

  2. northa914

    I've also experienced an increase in my blood sugar levels, though I'm not sure how dramatic the change is. My oncologist told me it was due to the use of Decadron, a glucocorticosteroid that I'm given before my treatments (Gemzar/Cisplatin for stage IV cholangiocarcinoma). So far it hasn't caused any problems for me. Have you discussed this with your husband's oncologist? I was told that the increase is temporary, and that my levels read high as I had a blood test two days after a treatment. I've been on this therapy since July 7th of 2010.

    Hope it's something temporary for your husband also. Take Care.

    I appreciated the reply about the high sugar levels. Others, too, have told me that steroids are the culprit. The thing that burns my A - -, is,... his oncologist was totally unconcerned about his sugar and told me he needed to be treated by our family physician, because diabetes is not his speciality. I've read soooo much about how sugar is a tumor feeder. Dr. Shah, is only concerned with his chemo and it's effect on Lee. I try to talk to him about some of my concerns and he treats me like I'm being silly and uneducated, (with all my talk about things I've read on the internet, supplements, sugar affecting tumors, etc). As a matter of fact last time we were there, I attempted to help with my husband's belly band that he wears for an inscision hernia, that he commented, "I've been doing this for 30 years", and THEN realized it would have to be removed BEFORE he could examine his abdomen. Then to re-establish his control over the situation, he said, "well, we don't really need to do that, (examine his swollen abdomen). ???? Does anyone else think we need a new doctor? Since he has stressed to us that the chemo is just palliative, he acts like he's just trying chemo, because insurance will justify payment till he decides it will no longer help. No matter what questions I ask, he comments, "well, if you want another opinion, you are welcome to do so." Why must I go from Oncologist to oncologist to find one who listens and in the meantime , my husband may be losing ground. Any comments out there? Does this sound like a problem? I have been nothing but polite to Dr. Shah, and wait till he asks if there are any questions. Most times I can see he hates saying that, because , yes, I always have questions. And he really didn't want to answer. Thanks again and thanks all for letting me vent. Thank God you guys are out there. I have learned so much about how to handle other situations. Bless you all suffering with or along with this dreadful disease.

Diabetes Type 1 - Diabetes Type 1 Life Expectancy - Type 1 Diabetes - Living With Diabetes Type 1 Diabetes Type 1 Diabetes Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune condition, which means your immune system attacks healthy body tissue by mistake. In this case, it attacks the cells in your pancreas. Your damaged pancreas is then unable to produce insulin, so that glucose cannot be moved out of your bloodstream and into your cells. Complications of Diabetes Type 1 Diabetes is the most common cause of vision loss and blindness in people of working age. Everyone with diabetes aged 12 or over should be invited to have their eyes screened once a year for diabetic retinopathy. Diabetes is the reason for many cases of kidney failure and lower limb amputation.

Diabetes Type 2

Many people we talked to continued to work after being diagnosed with diabetes. Support from employers in being flexible about working hours and the Access to Work scheme in providing equipment helped several people to continue working. Sometimes the type of work people did make it hard for them to keep working, especially if their job was physically demanding. People who had neuropathy (nerve damage) in their feet found it difficult to continue doing jobs which required walking long distances or standing for long periods of time. One man, who was a paramedic, said he took early retirement when he started taking insulin because he didn't want to be driving at high speed. A hairdresser found it hard to find time to eat properly and after developing neuropathy could no longer stand on her feet all day. Eating at the right time takes extra care and planning when working in a physically demanding job. However desk-based jobs can also cause problems for people with diabetes. Some people whose eyes were affected said that they found reading difficult, particularly reading from a computer screen. One man said he had become more sensitive to fluorescent lights at work and he felt it create Continue reading >>

    I'm sorry to have to admit this, but I'm experiencing some very nasty nightmares and was wondering of they were a result of the Metformin that I'm now on.
    I can't provide any other explanation and I'm not anxious about anything.
    I do hope someone can help.
    Thanks

  2. Dollyrocker

    I would have thought it's more to do with the stress you';re under at the moment in waiting for an accurate diagnosis and the thought of what it will mean for you long term
    Hugs

  3. nytquill17

    I don't know that nightmares are or aren't related to metformin, it's certainly possible! I know there are some medications that are widely known to cause nightmares (certain MH drugs for example - I myself had horrible dreams on Effexor) but if you're not taking anything else then it's probably not that.
    There are other possibilities too. As Dolly says, stress can affect us even if we don't feel anxious. More than once when OH has suggested I might be feeling stressed, I have found myself saying "I AM NOT STRESSED - er...sorry" That is to say, you may be feeling it more than you are consciously aware of.
    I often have strange dreams when I'm having a low blood sugar during the night. You aren't really at risk for low blood sugar from metformin but it's possible your blood sugars are lowering at night on their own, and compared to having high blood sugars most of the time, a sudden "normal" blood sugar can feel like a low to your body. If you wake up from them, that would be a good time to test your BG and see if there are any clues there.
    Definitely mention it to your doctor - maybe wait til your next appointment but if that's a ways off you'll want to call up and make an appointment. If it's possible it's a side effect he'll want to know about it so that you can find a more appropriate treatment for you and so that for any future patients he'll know it's a possibility! There's no point living with something like that when you don't have to.

http://revobiolabs.com Managing Diabetes: Managing diabetes tips, news and treatment Managing diabetes: Managing diabetes research, say they've linked type 2 diabetes with earlier development of precancerous colon lesions recommend people with the blood sugar disorder start colorectal screenings at a younger age than others. The managing diabetes research implies that people with diabetes should get screenings earlier, possibly at age 40, rather than at age 50. However, another managing diabetes experts said more research is needed before making that recommendation.The researchers cautioned that they can't say for sure that diabetes by itself raises the risk of the precancerous lesions and further study is required. Managing diabetes experts know that diabetes is linked with an increased risk of colon and other cancers. Researchers set out to determine if people with diabetes develop precancerous lesions, also called polyps or adenomas, earlier than people without diabetes. The researchers compared the incidence of polyps in three groups of patients: those 40 to 49 with and without diabetes and those 50 to 59 without diabetes. Each group had 125 people.

Managing Type 2 Diabetes At Work

Whether it's demanding bosses or meetings that run late, you probably deal with a variety of challenges in the workplace. Add in type 2 diabetes and you’ve got even more to juggle while you’re on the job, says Maria Elena Pena, MD, an assistant professor at Hofstra North Shore-LIJ School of Medicine and an endocrinologist at North Shore- LIJ Hospital in Syosset, N.Y. The exact hurdles vary from person to person, depending on your health, your work schedule, and your type of employment. But there are effective measures everyone can take to successfully handle type 2 diabetes, no matter what type of work you do: 1. Get it out in the open. "Many people don’t understand diabetes and what it means to have and manage the condition,” says Shelley Wishnick, RD, CDE, a diabetes educator at the Friedman Diabetes Institute at Mount Sinai Beth Israel in New York City. “Ideally, everyone in the workplace should be educated on diabetes and how it is managed in order to promote a healthier, more productive, and supportive working environment.” That said, you might not feel comfortable discussing your diabetes at work. At the very least, consider confiding in at least one or two co-wor Continue reading >>

    The good, the bad and the ugly of metformin

    I have been taking metformin sense the day I was first diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. As you probably know, it is the first-line drug of choice for the treatment of type 2 diabetes and I doubt that there are many of you that do not take metformin. Metformin works by suppressing glucose production by the liver. Evidence suggests metformin may prevent the cardiovascular and possibly the cancer complications of diabetes. It helps reduce LDL cholesterol and triglyceride levels and is not associated with weight gain; in some people, it promotes weight loss. Metformin is one of only two oral antidiabetics in the World Health Organization Model List of Essential Medicines.
    One of my first experiences with diabetes was finding that when I worked out my glucose level would actually increase. That was very frustrating sense I was working out to lower levels of glucose. When I told my doctor she put me on a heavier dose of metformin, 1000 mg twice a day. As with most drugs the treatment of one problem often causes another. There is a whole list of side effects associated with metformin: abdominal or stomach discomfort, cough or hoarseness, decreased appetite, diarrhea, fast or shallow breathing, fever or chills, general feeling of discomfort, lower back or side pain, muscle pain or cramping and painful or difficult urination. Other problems metformin may cause which will usually diminish over time is: Acid or sour stomach, belching, bloated, excess air or gas in the stomach or intestines, full feeling, heartburn, indigestion, loss of appetite, metallic taste in the mouth, passing of gas, stomachache, stomach upset or pain and vomiting. I hope this isn’t too much information!
    My latest experience with metformin was excess air or gas in the stomach. I experienced what seem to be a swelling in my throat followed by belching or burping. I cut my dose of metformin in half and the problem went away. Have any of you experienced discomforts with metformin?

  2. govna

    Let me tell you about my awful 3 year journey with metformin! I dealt with all the horrible side affects for a few years Mostly massive pain and intestinal bloating all that goes with it to the point of doctors taking out my gall bladder then on to a colonoscopy and endoscopy and then on to a stress test! All was "just fine" Finally doc said take me off the metformin since a small percentage of people cannot tolerate metformin. Well low and behold I was one of them! After about two weeks most all of the hellish discomfort disappeared! I now take 50 units of toujeo every morning feel great and found a new lease on life energy wise! I am back baby!!!! It is just a shame looking back on how long I suffered needlessly. Not to mention the metformin wasn't even bringing my sugar down anyhow. All it did was make me extremely sick!!!
