Diabetic Put Her Life At Risk To Lose Weight: Mother Stopped Taking Her Insulin Injections After Ballooning To 19 Stone

A diabetic mother whose weight ballooned during pregnancy put her life at risk when she stopped taking her insulin medication in a bid to slim down. Hayleigh Juggins ignored doctors' advice, halting the treatment for her diabetes having blamed the hormone for her weight reaching 19st. The 20-year-old was diagnosed with type one diabetes when she was 15 years old. When she fell pregnant three years later, she began taking high doses of insulin, which she claims led to rapid weight gain. By the time she gave birth when she was 19, she weighed 19st and was wearing size 22 clothes. Horrified, she decided to disregard doctors’ instructions to take insulin after each meal and subsequently found herself shrinking. Stable today at 10st 10lb, Miss Juggins says that despite being pleased at gaining her dream figure, she will never again risk serious damage to her health by going against medical advice. She said: ‘There was a war within me - on the one hand I was distraught at having gained so much weight during pregnancy, but on the other I knew what I was doing was bad for me. Indeed, experts stress that skipping insulin can have devastating consequences, including brain damage and deat Continue reading >>

    What happens when a diabetic stop taking insulin?

    I have been diabetic for almost 15 years. Presently I do not have insurance and can not afford the two types of insulin that I require. What will happen as I have not had any insulin in about two months. Are there alternatives to taking insulin - like nature cures, teas, etc.

    Well you guys all say a few hours and I am at 3 months without it. I am 17 years old too and I have been eating low carb food only, only drinking water and exercising a lot. My last doctor visit was a week ago and my hba1c was 6.1 which is very good! I don't suggest trying what I am doing right away though. I slowly decreased my dosage from 30x2 a day to 0 over the course of a month. You must exercise a lot and eat low carbs otherwise you will get into dangerous levels. My highest without insulin was 360, but only for 1 hr then I went for a 20 mile bike ride an it was down to 90. I bike everywhere instead of driving because it is good exercise and it helps keep my blood sugar down. My average blod sugar level is probably around 130 and it has gotten as low as 58 without insulin. There are also times that I can see I am producing at least some insulin because It will go down a little without exercise. I have the ketone test strips and I have never had anything major.

The Effects Of Stopping Metformin

The medication metformin is a drug in the biguanide family that is used to treat type 2 or adult-onset diabetes mellitus. Drugs.com notes that metformin is often the first prescribed medication for individuals with type 2 diabetes and may also be used in combination with other diabetes medications or insulin. This medication is sold under the brand name Glucophage, Glucophage XR and Fortamet. Metformin helps to reduce glycemic or sugar levels in the blood in a number of ways. If an individual with type 2 diabetes stops taking metformin, they may experience serious immediate and long-term effects of uncontrolled high levels of blood glucose. Video of the Day A primary mode of action of metformin is increasing the sensitivity of the body’s muscles, tissues and cells to insulin--a hormone that is essential for transporting glucose from the blood to the body. Drugs.com notes that individuals with type 2 diabetes have insulin resistance. This causes the cells to ignore the effects of insulin and not allow glucose to be transported into the muscles and tissues where it is vital to produce energy. The body tries to compensate by secreting more insulin, which only leads to hyperinsulinem Continue reading >>

Pancreas And Diabetes: Why Does Pancreas Stop Producing Insulin?

Every part of an individual’s body has its own mechanisms. It is the constant production of hormones that leads to bodily as well as mental changes. This task of generating enzymes and hormones which are required for breaking food down lies with Pancreas. Being an important part of the body, its responsibility is also about producing enough insulin in the body so that the sugar level remains intact. In fact, imbalance in the production of insulin can lead to the health problem called Diabetes. Once the problem starts developing, it can be only controlled by taking suitable diet and by avoiding eating sweets. Let us see what the function of Pancreas is and its contribution towards the development of Diabetes. What is Pancreas and What is it’s Role? Pancreas is an important part of the body, which is positioned behind the lower stomach. It has the ability to produce insulin and glucagon that tends to regulate sugar level in the blood. Carrying out the double functionality of stowing hormones into the blood as well as discharging enzymes through ducts, Pancreas have always held a significant position in controlling hormonal secretion and regulation. A slightest of imbalance in the Continue reading >>

    How to STOP Taking Insulin

    I have to conduct an experiment that will involve stopping my insulin for a few weeks, if that long. I've only been on it for about a month. Yes, I know my numbers will go back up. Is insulin something you can stop abruptly or do I need to slowly decrease my dose? I can't take the oral meds. Please, I don't need a lecture, just whether or not I can stop without titrating.
    Thank you.

  3. jack1

    Ask your Dr, but this is what I did, but I would do whatever it took to keep my bloods in range, including insulin..by not flogging the pancreas, I would have the best chance of preserving what's left of my pancreas cells, while I get my diet and bloods in range
    it’s a long page and a few good video’s
    http://www.dietdoctor.com/lchf

Insulin is a special chemical (hormone) made by the pancreas gland, and allows the glucose from the blood stream to get in to our body’s cells to give us energy. Without insulin the glucose remains in the bloodstream and cannot give us the energy we need. In someone who does not have diabetes the amount ...
