    I was just wondering if anyone has tried this medication for either of these disorders? ie Insulin Resistance or PreDiabetes, or Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome.
    I'm just in the process of preparing for a Dr appointment I have this week to discuss a whole heap of results and symtpoms etc. I may have found a Dr to finally take some interest in me, and my ongoing symtoms etc
    I would like to hear your experience with the drug ie did you feel it helped you, and were the side effects bad. I hate taking medication for anything, but think this might help me, will obviously discuss it with my Dr, but just interested in your experience.

    I was diagnosed with PCOS in 2000, when I was 120kg. I saw an endocrinologist, who put me on a version of the birth control pill, and I also went on a diet and lost 40kg. From then on I tried to stay fit and healthy, but I found it very difficult to control my weight. A strict low GI diet helped, but wasn't fully successful. I went back over 90kg a few years ago, and nothing I did could shift it. By then, I was also having terrible issues with feeling tired, weak, cranky and even anxious if I didn't eat for a while, and at the end of every day I was an absolute wreck. Even walking up the stairs to our first floor unit would make me want to cry when I got home from work. It was awful.
    I felt there was something wrong with my blood sugar. My GP sent me for an insulin test, but it came back that I was just at the top end of the normal range. Months later, I found out my mother had been diagnosed with type II diabetes, and also my sister was pregnant and had gestational diabetes. I went back to my GP and insisted on a glucose tolerance test. It came back that I had impaired glucose tolerance. What a surprise (not). So I got a referral to a gyno who specialised in PCOS, and she put me on Metformin right away. She also suggested I see a dietician, but I've read so many books on PCOS and nutrition that I didn't really see the point.
    The Metformin helped IMMENSELY. I stopped being afraid of hunger, because it didn't make me feel anxious and shaky and horribly bad tempered anymore. I felt like I could eat when I was hungry and stop when I was full, whereas before that I was eating all day to prevent the blood sugar crashes I was having (I know it sounds weird that you can be hypoglycaemic with insulin resistance, because logically you should have high blood sugar levels all the time rather than low. But apparently your body doesn't move blood glucose around to where you need it when you have insulin resistance, so you feel like your blood sugar is low even when it's high. Or something like that).
    Unfortunately, I didn't lose any weight. But I felt a lot more in control of my eating, and I had the energy to do a LOT of exercise. I was working out for at least an hour most days of the week. When I went back to the gyno after six months, I asked her about getting pregnant, and she said I should really try to get down to a BMI of 30 before even trying. So I tried even harder to lose weight, but nothing was budging at all. So we decided to try and get pregnant anyway, because I was 33 by then and didn't want to let it go any longer. We thought it would take a long time, but it only took about 4 months
    I stayed on Metformin through the pregnancy, with the blessing of my obstetrician and obstetric physician who specialised in this area. I also monitored my blood sugars, which stayed very well controlled. But because there hasn't been a lot of research into Metformin and pregnancy (just enough to show no short term effects, but no long term studies yet), my obstetrician wanted to make sure the baby came out as soon as it was safe, ie. around 37-38 weeks. She was going to be induced, but she wasn't even the slightest bit engaged, so I ended up having a c-section at 38 weeks. Everything was fine, but I really do wish things could have been different, and I could have had a natural birth
    My obstetric physician told me I could go off Metformin for a while after the birth, and I would know when I needed it again. It was nice to be off it for a while, but eventually I started having days when I was incredibly tired, and would spend the whole afternoon in bed with my bub. It was a struggle to even get up and change her nappy. I finally realised this was the insulin resistance hitting me again, so I went back on the Metformin.
    There are definitely side effects. A lot of days I forget to take it after one or two meals, because it's hard to keep things straight even now that my bub is nearly 10 months old. On the days when I remember to take it three times in a day, the side effects hit me a lot harder. Basically, you fart a lot. And you have to get used to that. It sucks, but that's just how it is. You learn how to hold it in and wait until you're alone in a room, or you move away from other people when you're in public, and make sure there's no one downwind of you . The worst thing is when someone walks into a room unexpectedly. Gah! You also just have a lousy digestive system in general, and have to run to the loo sometimes at inconvenient moments. Some days I would say this isn't worth it, but the vast majority of the time it's OK.
    Sorry if this was too long, but I thought it might help!

    Hi OP
    I was on Metformin from the age of 23 until we wanted to start trying for a baby (June 2010)- due to PCOS and insulin resistance, I was put on both metformin (500mg, twice daily) and yasmin (the pill). It worked great for me- initial side effects include some minor gastric upsets and a funny metallic taste in mouth but they went away within a couple of weeks.
    I am a 'lean' PCOS woman (48 kg when I got diagnosed), so I didn't need to lose any weight according to my gyno at the time. I did however change my diet to more low-GI whilst on metformin. By 2010, my insulin resistance had remedied itself and I fell pregnant literally straight away coming off pill. My GD results during this pregnancy at 28 weeks were absolutely perfect (much to my surprise!!) though I did the 3 hour test straight off the mark as my OB knew my history (plus, I'm a 3 hour GTT test expert LOL).
    Personally, I think it's a great drug and long term, it really does help. They have linked metformin (glucophage) to overall longer life in some studies I think, but of course diet and exercise (and good genes- which unfortunately we can't choose) are No 1 in the battle against insulin resistance and diabetes in the longer term.

Comforting Crock Pot Chili

This classic and simple crock pot chili is sure to please your taste buds! 1 pound ground turkey breast or very lean ground beef In nonstick skillet over medium heat, cook ground meat until meat is no longer pink; drain. Transfer meat to Crock Pot. Add remaining ingredients and stir until combined. Cook on "high" for 4 hours; remove lid and stir quickly halfway through. If people spent less time bitching & more time actually adapting recipes to their own needs maybe I would visit DC more. Beans are great & I add corn - i use shredded chicken because it has the MOST Protein. This needs more help to be healthier for us diabetics. The fiber will NOT stop the starch in the beans and corn from raising blood sugar at all!! Don't add cooked beans but add cooked carrots either sliced as they come OR mashed up in a food processor with the tomato sauce. I would add zucchini slices or dices and cut the starchy carbs considerably. My A1c is 5.2 because I NEVER eat beans, corn or other starchy carbs that cannot be stopped at raising blood sugar by fiber. Fiber works in the gut and starch works in the mouth as soon as it hits the saliva. A little too much sodium so there's absolutely NO reason Continue reading >>

    My whole life I've been taught salt is bad. I've never used much salt in cooking because I got more than enough from processed foods. However it's day 2 of keto for me and I know I need more sodium but it really scares me to consume so much. I saw 5000mg is recommended for keto and my jaw dropped. How do I get over this? I have pre-hypertension so that's another worry.

    How do I get over this?
    Learn the science and get over it :) or learn the hard way...
    Without enough sodium on keto you will certainly feel like crap. It's not a net increase in sodium, you need more because keto has a diuretic effect. In additon to regulating blood glucose, insulin regulates sodium reabsorption in the kidney. On a high carb diet, you retain sodium, on a low carb diet, insulin is lower and you waste salt literally into your urine and in the toilet which makes you sodium depleted and water follows salt so you then becomes dehydrated. Follow the guidelines in the FAQ and make your life easier.
    Moreover, there is minimal to no evidence for salt restriction like many other standard government nutrition recommendations.

    Check out The Art and Science of Low Carbohydrate Living. It's an amazing book written by two doctors for other doctors to use in clinical practice, and it goes into great detail about the hows and whys of why low carb works, and like you're asking, why certain details become important on low carb diets. It may set your mind at ease. It's one of the best nutrition books I've ever read.

Is Chili Another 'no No' Food?

Registration is fast, simple and absolutely free so please,join our community todayto contribute and support the site. This topic is now archived and is closed to further replies. Can anyone tell me if chili w/beans is comparable to pasta in how slowly or quickly it digests for most people? I made a good size container of it yesterday and had a one cup serving for my lunch. My blood sugar went high, but I blamed it on the half slice of bread I had with it. Tonight however I had the same meal minus the bread and my frickin blood sugar is already 171 (9.5) whereas my pre-meal reading was a respectable 87 (4.8). It was hard enough to give up pasta for the most part and now chili is also on the 'naughty' list? This is definitely a YMMV thing. I eat chilli about once a week, my husband loves it. I make it with beans and lots of meat and veggies. I usually eat it on top of a salad with lots of full fat sour cream , cheese and chopped avacados. I probably wat 1/2 cup - 2/3 cup at a time. I probably spike to 120 or so, maybe it is all the fat I eat. I usually drink a glass of wine with it. Chili can be fairly high in carbs. Beans can definately impact your BG (again YMMV)....but I have se Continue reading >>

    When my cat Cici was diagnosed with diabetes my Vet told me I needed to stop feeding the cat grain free dry food and start on science diet w/d. Cici is 13lbs and after 3 years on the w/d, hasn't lost any weight. My overlove has been blamed and to be honest since she is 17 years old and was diagnosed at 14, I haven't been trying too hard to limit her food intake. I have just seen threads on how bad science diet is any suggestions on a dry food that is available at a pet food store like petsmart or petco? I sometimes travel during the day and because she is diabetic, I free feed the dry and give my cats a few tablespoons of friskies wet cat food 2 times a day. I have tried to talk to my vet about switching food because the rest of my cats who also eat the w/d seem to be gaining weight. Though she is a very good vet, she is stuck on science diet or royal canin. Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

    Some vets are definitely stuck on the prescription foods. Is your kitty on insulin? I understand about traveling during the day but is there any way you could get your kitty at least primarily on wet food, maybe 2 meals a day and a very small amount of dry to nibble on. Basically the best diet for kitties in general would be the best for your kitty as well, high protein low carb. The deal with kibble is that it tends to be high in carbs even the grain free ones have carb laden fillers in them.
    http://www.catinfo.org/ is a good web site for general nutrition info and includes a chart of commercial foods with protein, fat and carb percentages. There are foods from grocery store brands on through to very high priced brands that are at least decent quality. Pates in general are lower in carbs.

  3. marc999

    If you sometimes travel during the day, do you have time to lay down a can of wet food in the morning before you leave?
    Ideally some food should be given 2-3x a day, but I'm sure one full 5.5-6 oz. can of Grreat Choice (Poultry Platter, Mixed Grill, Country Dinner) (PetSmart) brand once / day, is better than free feeding whatever dry food you can find. The calories should be indicated on the back of the can.
    You can also find sales on Fancy Feast classics, or Friskies Pate.
    Since you mentioned PetSmart, those 3 are likely the least expensive canned wet food alternatives, especially when PetSmart has a sale going on. That's the time to stock up.
    Failing that - stay with grain free kibble if you must but portion out the servings. Read the bag to figure out the calories per cup.
    For example, I have a bag of Orijen Regional Red - 500 calories per cup is a lot and no darn way would I want my cat even eating 1/2 of that in a day.
    If you're away for a weekend, then yeah dry food is the only option if nobody is available to check on kitty. But go easy on the portions. You could measure out 2 days worth as a trial run and see how much is left after 12/ 24 / 36 hrs., then 48 hrs, then you'll know how much extra to add without over doing it.
    Doesn't Petsmart have Wellness Core or Innova Evo dry foods? Just stay with your grain free kibble when you can't give wet, there seems to be enough agreement that Science Diet is not the answer.
