    i was diagnosed with PCOS and taking metformin... im losing 1kg every day. ive been taking metformin for 3days now and lose 3kgs. my doctor prescribed me take metformin for 3months... im afraid that ill become underweight..

  2. TARAFOFARA

    Metformin has done some wonderful things for me but weight loss is not one. My endocrinologist did not want to put me on it since I didn't appear to have any metabolic dysfunction. I asked if I could try it anyway. Two years later the calcified cysts on my ovaries are gone and my body pelt has disappeared in some areas or become very fine. My arm hair is normal now. I have been on birth control and spironolactone since 2001 for PCOS symptoms but I wasnt diagnosed until a few years ago. I just had my 6th month blood work done for my endocrinologist and all my levels were good. Its so nice not to have elevated testosterone and be told its because I am fat.

    Metformin helps you lose weight as long as you meet a certain set of conditions. For example, if you're type 1 and have good blood sugar control, Metformin can help you lose weight. If you're type 2 and you don't have good blood sugar control, Metformin will not help you lose weight (though it will help lower your blood sugar).

What Is A Balanced Diet For Diabetes?

What is a healthy , balanced diet for Diabetes ? From Diabetes UK Whether you are living with diabetes or not, eating well is important. The foods you choose to eat in your daily diet make a difference not only to managing diabetes , but also to how well you feel and how much energy you have every day. How much you need to eat and drink is based on your age, gender, how active you are and the goals you are looking to achieve. Portion sizes have grown in recent years, as the plates and bowls we use have got bigger. Use smaller crockery to cut back on your portion sizes, while making the food on your plate look bigger. No single food contains all the essential nutrients you need in the right proportion. Thats why you need to consume foods from each of the main food groups to eat well. Naturally low in fat and calories and packed full of vitamins, minerals and fibre, fruit and vegetables add flavour and variety to every meal. They may also help protect against stroke, heart disease, high blood pressure and some cancers. Try: adding an extra handful of vegetables to your dishes when cooking peas to rice, spinach to lamb or onions to chicken. Potatoes, rice, pasta, bread, chapattis, na Continue reading >>

    I've been looking for an insulin index chart, my understanding is there is a breakdown of how foods can effect insulin... sort of like the glycemic index... is that correct, if so where can I find it?

  2. BillJay

    An Internet search for "insulin index" returns lots of results, I think the question is which source is authoritative? or do they all link back to the same source? Meaning that I found links from Holt, Willet, and Mendosa, etc. across the Internet.
    I chose to link the Wikipedia entry that attributes to Holt since that seemed to be the most common reference.

    Insulin index
    The Insulin Index of a food represents how much it elevates the concentration of insulin in the blood during the two-hour period after the food is ingested. The index is similar to the Glycemic Index (GI) and Glycemic Load (GL), but rather than relying on blood glucose levels, the Insulin Index is based upon blood insulin levels. The Insulin Index represents a comparison of food portions with equal overall caloric content (250 kcal or 1000 kJ), while GI represents a comparison of portions with eq...

    I have a really big problem with my eating, and it's because of this that I am struggling to lose weight. I have reactive hypoglycemia, so I went to a dietician, who gave me a eating plan, everything was whole wheat, the whole wheat helps to stabilize it. Then because of the whole wheat I became very sick, the whole wheat wasn't good for my tummy. So the dietician put me back on white bread white pasta etc. So now I have to eat every 2 - 3 hours. And I don't like meat at all. I will only eat fish or sometimes chicken. So the problem is that I'm not always sure what to eat that will stabilize the hypoglycemia, and that will not upset my tummy, and will also help me to lose weight and have a healthy diet. Can anyone help me with this?

    Your dietician is whacked.. she put you on REFINED carbohydrates - no wonder you are crashing!!!! That dietician is a whackadoodle... there, I said it.
    It would be more helpful if you would open your food diary - very hard to make suggestions where you have locked it from viewing.
    Youre definitely gonna need to be MUCH better about getting in pure proteins in.... Im not a fan of meats but with proper seasonings, rubs, herbs, spices, its much easier to 'stomach'...

    I struggle with reactive hypoglycemia at times as well. I have PCOS and hyperinsulinemia.
    The best thing for stabilizing blood sugar-
    limit refined carbs. Eat low GI carbs, they produce a steady stream of sugar into the blood, rather than a sudden spike. You can find lists of low GI foods online. Just search glycemic index.
    Combine carbs with protein. From what I understand, protein slows the digestion of the carbs, again resulting ina steady stream rather than a sudden spike.
    Examples:
    peanut butter with triscuit crackers or whole grain bread, cottage cheese with fruit, apple with peanut butter, greek yogurt. If you like eggs, they are great. Egg salad with bread or crackers. String cheese with fruit, veggies with hummus, etc...
    Try to combine healthy protein sources with whole grain. I know you're not a meat fan, but try maybe some sliced turkey or chicken?
    I wouldn't keep trying to go for refined carbs- they will just make the blood sugar worse.
    Just my 2cents... hope the snack ideas help.
