Can You Eat Ginger If You Have Diabetes?

Diabetes is a metabolic condition that some people are born with and others may develop over time. It affects the way people produce or respond to insulin, which in turn affects the way your body processes sugar. Because of this, it’s important to take note of what you’re eating and how it may impact your blood sugar levels. Ginger, for example, is low in carbohydrates and calories. It has only 1.3 grams of carbohydrates per teaspoon. Known for its spicy taste and unmistakable flavor, ginger also contains potassium, iron, and fiber.

    I think Metformin is causing fatigue. Should I stop?

    Searching for answers for this topic is how I stumbled upon this group. About a month ago, I was diagnosed with Type 2 and was prescribed Metformin 500 mg 2x daily. The most common side effect, gastrointestinal issues, has been minor for me, but the fatigue has become almost unbearable. It literally takes me to zero energy. I'm about ready to give it up and try to fight the fight without the aid of Metformin or any medication. Does the side effect improve over time? As someone who has suffered from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome for several years, I know fatigue and low energy like the back of my hand but this, energy wise, is absolute rock bottom. I'd like to hear particularly from those who also experience this side effect from the drug. Thanks for the help.
    ***I understand that I should not ask anyone to advise me to stop taking a medication. Allow me to rephrase. If you have experienced a similar reaction, can you tell me if things improved over time, either with or without an intervention on your behalf, adding another supplement, for example, or did the side effects cause you to discontinue the medication?***

    It could be or it could be the fact your bg is going down. What does your meter say, what readings are you getting. We can not advise you if you should stop it, call your doctor and ask what they think. It never affected me that way but it can some people. Having blood sugar go from a higher number to a lower number can make you tired.

    We cannot and would not suggest anyone not take their prescription.
    I do suggest you call your doctor's office ASAP.
