Diet Soda Intake And Risk Of Incident Metabolic Syndrome And Type 2 Diabetes In The Multi-ethnic Study Of Atherosclerosis (mesa)

OBJECTIVE We determined associations between diet soda consumption and risk of incident metabolic syndrome, its components, and type 2 diabetes in the Multi-Ethnic Study of Atherosclerosis. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS Diet soda consumption was assessed by food frequency questionnaire at baseline (2000–2002). Incident type 2 diabetes was identified at three follow-up examinations (2002–2003, 2004–2005, and 2005–2007) as fasting glucose >126 mg/dl, self-reported type 2 diabetes, or use of diabetes medication. Metabolic syndrome (and components) was defined by National Cholesterol Education Program Adult Treatment Panel III criteria. Hazard ratios (HRs) with 95% CI for type 2 diabetes, metabolic syndrome, and metabolic syndrome components were estimated, adjusting for demographic, lifestyle, and dietary confounders. RESULTS At least daily consumption of diet soda was associated with a 36% greater relative risk of incident metabolic syndrome and a 67% greater relative risk of incident type 2 diabetes compared with nonconsumption (HR 1.36 [95% CI 1.11–1.66] for metabolic syndrome and 1.67 [1.27–2.20] for type 2 diabetes). Of metabolic syndrome components, only high waist cir Continue reading >>

    Hello all
    My doc may put me on Metformin(Glucophage) to help with my PCOS. I find that I'm able to control what I eat for the first half of the day, but come evening, I just lose it on most occasions. I'm not totally sure if there's something wrong with me, but the doc will be meeting with me Wednesday and is addressing all my labs and starting me on something. I may need a progesterone-only BC pill and metformin to help get me back on track.
    I'm so scared of the side effects. Not because I think I'll die, but I just have to work and hope I can still function as I seem to be one of those people who always gets side effects from stuff.
    Have any of you lost weigh on this? If so, how much and how long did it take? I've read MANY reviews of metformin where the person ate sensibly and lost anywhere from 20-45 pounds the first 3 months without too much effort. Most of them just lowered their carbs and had more protein/dairy with veggies and fruits.

    20 to 45 pounds in three months? I haven't heard of anyone losing that amount of weight because of metformin. It's a nice thought, though.
    I find that I'm starving in the evening, if I eat lunch too early. Try eating a later lunch and eat something to keep you feeling fuller, longer. Also, don't forget to eat a snack between meals to keep your glucose numbers level.

I hope I'm not sick as a dog at work.
