^^Losing weight  thru diet and exercise is one of the proven and effective ways of controlling blood sugars. Try not to be misled by just relying on your fasting blood sugar leve. The hbaic is more reliable in determining whether your diabetes is controlled or not.  The lower the hbaic level, the lesser risk for diabetes related complications.

Hi! I have type 2 Diabetes too. I'm currently managing it with Metformin and diet. I have been on the Paleo-diet for 30 days and so far, my blood sugar control has been easy.

My doctor has recommended the standard ADA diet for me but it has been difficult to maintain my sugar until now. So I'm giving the paleo diet a try.

Btw, I'm new to female network so I'm happy to find that there's a group for diabetics here too.

I was taking metformin too, but I stopped it kasi parang hindi hiyang sa akin. Less carbs na lang ako and no more coffee and since then nag lower na blood sugar ko although minsan tumataas but not more than 200.

Importante din talaga ang exercise and lose some weight. When I lose 20lbs don, nakatulong din.

I am now maintaining my diet and exercise kasi ayoko ng bumalik sa dati ang blood sugar na sobrang taas.

Wag masyadong deadmahin ang diabetes. My mom is experiencing complications na ng diabetes nya.. matigas rin kasi ang ulo nya.. minsan hindi pa rin nya maiwasan yung mga sweets.. now she's suffering liver cirrhosis naman.. mostly tinatamaan ng may cirrhosis yung mga alcoholic pero sya kasi isa na sya sa mga naging complications ng sakit nya and honestly pahirapan talaga yung sakit na yun.

Advise ko lang, Control your sugar in-take. Eat healthy foods. Be a Good Patient!

Cheesecak3, sis paano ka na diagnosed na may diabetes?


palagi akong nagpapa Hba1c at FBS, kasi nasa lahi namin, palaging normal, until last week, nasobrahan ata ako last christmas ng sweets, ang HBa1c ko eh 6.5.

May diabetes na ata ako, since yung mga symptoms nararamdaman ko na din. Pero pupunta pa lang kasi ako sa doctor, sana naman, pre diabetes pa lang, para makapag bagong buhay pa ako.

Right now, sinimulan ko na rin ang diet at exercise.

sa exercise, everday ba kayo mga sis? ako kasi 3 times aweek lang kaya ko, pwede na kaya yun?

Kumakain pa din ako ng kanin, 1 cup a meal, iniwasan ko na lang anything sweets. Sana naman may pag asa pa ako. Oh well.
POV lang, Walang Personalan ;)

^ I had gestational diabetes kasi tapos hindi na nawala after gaving birth. So far hindi pa rin ganon ka normal ang blood sugar but mas mababa na to compared nong una. I make a point to exercise 30 minutes a day.

^ thank you sis.

Kakukuha ko lang ng FBS result ko, normal naman. Yung Hba1c ko ang 6.5, na abnormal, sabi ni doc, borderline pa lang daw yun.

Babalik pa lang ako sa doc mamaya, and sana nga ma delay pa ang onset ng diabetes sa akin, since I know, sooner or later, kung hindi ko babaguhin ang lifestyle ko, magkaka diabetes ako, since nasa lahi din namin.


Twice na akong nagkakaroon ng abnormal HBa1c, nung dalaga ako, tapos ngayon.

Pero FBS, normal palagi ako. Hmmmm..ano kaya yun?

Try half cup of rice lang sa meal mo. And after you eat, do  thirty minutes of walking. Yung aunt ko na sinamahan ko when she had this 'rehabilitation,' she was told to reduce her white rice to half cup, brisk walking after meals, avoid grapes and banana. Parang mataas yata sugar ng mga prutas na ito. Yan lang ang natatandaan ko hehe.

Regular na ulet sugar niya.And hindi na sya nagtitake ng pills nya.

I'm just so happy there's a thread about diabetes here. Before, I always joke about eating lots of sweets  and being diabetic. Sabi ko, bakit ako titigil na kumain ng sweets, e alam ko namang eventually magkaka-diabetes din ako (kasi may history ang family ko ng diabetes). But now that I'm experiencing the symptoms... ang hirap pala.

I still don't know if I'm diabetic already, but with what I've been experiencing recently... mukha ngang meron na. Palpitations and difficulty in breathing for around 5 consecutive weeks from Dec to January (I thought, these were caused by my asthma attacks), recently sobrang umiikot ang paligid ko at lagi akong nahihilo at medyo nasusuka, plus skin infections. Diabetes na nga ba 'to?

Ano bang mga symptoms sa inyo, girls? Thank you!

My dad and i are bith diabetic as well. Pero we are taking essentials and coquinone to cure it. So far it's gonna be a month already since we started taking these. Nung nagpacheck up kami, my improvements :) masaya naman kami about it since wala kaming binago sa food intake namin. Just took those vitamins, it was very helpful!

My dad is Diabetic. Sobrang dami na niyang gamot na iniinom plus may insulin narin siya. Sobrang dami naring complications nitong Diabetes sa kanya. He's currently at the hospital right now kasi yung sugat niya hindi na gumagaling and umakyat na daw yung infection. Buti nalang at naagapan. But my dad still needs to undergo another laboratory test to check his Crea, blood,sugar,etc. Hope he gets well soon...

My husband has just been diagnosed last week. Tapos maga pa liver nya. Ang tigas kasi ulo. nung pre-diabetes stage pa lang lalo pa shang uminom at kumain ng madami. Ang lagi niyang sabi saken kapag pinagsasabihan ko siya- "okay lang, ngayon lang naman to," Hanggang sa nagyellow balat niya, at ngangati skin niya. Malkaks siya uminom at grabe sa pulutan at kanin. Mahilig din sa matamis like cake at  candy , lahat ng sweets. Sad ako kasi bata pa anak namin. Ng iinsulin shots na siya twice a day. Ako alam kong prone ako kaya i watch what i eat.  :'( :'(

Good thing this thread is here. I had GD with all my pregnancies.
Am blessed that my sugar is normal now.
I will start to reduce my rice intake to 1/2 cup.
I take oatmeal with Splenda for lunch if I'm at home and have a normal meal with my family
For dinner.

My endocrinologist is Dr. Michael Villa of St. Luke's.  I prefer going to his clinic at
St. Luke's Global.

last week nagpa test ako sa blood sugar ko. naisip ko lang na baka mataas sugar ko since nasa lahi ng mom ko na diabetic. anyway, yung result sa test is 137. diabetic na ba ako?

Yes.


To connect to what others posted: 

Actually, the meds do not lower but regulate para you have no down or up spikes. 

What I did was to buy this One  Touch small sugar level monitor.

After 3 weeks, of at least 6 tests per day -- I correlated that  when I get sleepy, or toes tingle --   sugar's up
When I have tingling on my ams, or feeling low batt kahit I did not rush around -- sugar's low -- that's dangerous so I agad drink regular coke.   (When you travel, have chocs in your bag all the time. Have a reg. coke can in your car all the time.)

"Signals" per person vary -- so, you must study yourself. 

Yes, avoid sugar rich fruits & food -- you can google the list  or buy a book

BUT my endocrinologist says anything can be eaten IF you just take 2 bites/ 2 TB of the sugar-high foods. Eh puede ba yon?! So avoid na lang. 


Hi Sisses :) Meron sa inyo na naka-experience na namanas/tumaba ang legs and feet? Yung may feeling pa na sobrang stretched?

Yes, but just my feet and ankles. After a long flight - ganyan. Dati, hindi. Must be connected with my 135 HBA1C


Tapos maga pa liver nya. Ang tigas kasi ulo. nung pre-diabetes stage pa lang lalo pa shang uminom at kumain ng madami.

Docs say never eat big meals. s*** puro healthy food or salad kinain mo but madami -- bad for the liver & your blood sugar.  Better daw 5 or 6 small meals spread  through the day.

hi sis..

pwede ba magpacheck ng blood sugar kahit walang referral coming from the MD and kahit wala ka naman nararamdaman.. I just want to make sure na ok blood sugar level ko pati na rin sa mama ko pero wala naman signs of diabetes.. at ayaw ko naman na hintayin ang symptoms.  :D

^importante talaga hindi mag skip ng meals, yung mga wala ngang diabetes mag skip lang ng breakfast pwede ng mahilo. What more kung may gamot na pang pababa ng blood sugar, talagang at risk ka sa hypoglycemia. Dapat may candy ka nala dala lagi, para mag napansin mo na nanghihina ka na at malamig ang balat, may immediate source ng sugar.

for a healthy person, masama talaga mag skip ng meals. why? na strestress ang pancreas. it has to produce hormones to protect the body from hypoglycemia. tapos pag kumain ka, blood sugar goes up tremendously dahil nga gutom na gutom ka, so insulin naman ang katapat. pancreas din ang maoover work. kaya nga masama mag palipas gutom. and dapat eat small muna pag nalipasan. now if you are suffering from diabetes lalo na dapat hindi. right? as for the liver and other internal organs, ganun din. mabibigla sila. okay lang kung bata pa. but as you age, body will be more sensitive as it can't repair itself the way they used to. eating in small meals will definitely help regulation.

now, there was a medical study in australia led by Dr. Kerin O'Dea of the Department of Medicine, University of Melbourne. He took a 10 aboriginals who were obese and had diabetes and introduced them back into the Hunter-Gatherer lifestyle. they only ate what they could hunt, fish or collect. after a short period of time.  all became normal

so theoretically it shows that exercise and having the proper foods can help you control blood sugar levels.

Ako, as a sports enthusiast, I've been following fitness expert Clarence Bass since i was a teenager. Sabi niya his Dad suffered from diabetes. and therefore nasa genes niya. Now Mr. Bass is at least 75 years old and has not developed diabetes. Mr. Bass is so into health and fitness that he would always have himself tested, ie body fat, VO2 max etc. Then one time the Doctor said that his Blood sugar and Triglycerides are slightly elevated. If not for his diet and exercise, he would have developed the disease. Sabi nga ng isang doctor sa Cooper clinic, i think it was dr cooper himself or maybe dr. jensen,  "Genes load the gun but lifestyle pulls the trigger."  But a lot of Doctors today say that Diabetes is merely more than being genetic. every one is susceptible.

As for Mr. Bass' diet, he's almost Paleo. He eats grains mostly. he is so lean and fit for his age (75). sabi nga niya, how can insulin be a problem for him if he has so little body fat? so kelangan talaga mag pa slim down...or better put, to be lean. so the paleo diet, the way i see it, is a way of controlling the break down of foods. hindi agad papasok sa blood stream. veggies rich in fiber, matagal mag break down yun and will keep you feeling full.  so the point is, mabagal ang pag convert into glucose.

exercise naman, increases insulin sensitivity. at the same time burns sugar. kaya normal lang ang topic ng insulin sa body builders because kasama yun sa pag palaki ng muscles. not that may sakit sila. the more muscles you have the more stuff in your body will be burned while at rest. i just can't remember if it was Mr. Bass or someone else, basta walking daw after every meal helps insulin sensitivity and the burning of sugar. Mr. Bass walks for 30 minutes in the morning and evening. this i remember clearly. he has days dedicated resistance training and days focused on cardio. some of my friends nga ndi nila pinapansin etong idol ko na author. why? they're so into the hypes in the gym. sa akin lang, the point is, he was able to reach 75 with no problems sa mga organs niya.

the good thing with weight lifting is that it takes 2-3 days for muscles to recover. since there is an increased need, more nutrients is needed to repair. therefore mas "masusunog" ang glucose dahil may increased need. kaya important ang resistance training, kasi the demand lasts for days. unlike pag cardio lang, you can recover in an hour or 2 or even minutes. walang heightened demand.

they also say that ALA, CLA, fish oils etc...those omega 3 and 6 can help the body's insulin sensitivity. these good fats can thin the blood too. have you ever seen fish oil placed on styro? yun. it should melt bad fats. sabi din nila Chromium is important.

detox din daw. plus supplements of fenugreek, bitter melon etc etc. I've heard meron pa daw na nag bleblend ng ampalaya for breakfast. good to detox din other organs.

also i remember a.vivero saying that most of the ampalaya capsules being sold are not made correctly? kaya mas mabuti pa daw other methods or other ampalaya capsule brand or eating the real vegetable.

as we grow old, hormones go down. one way or another, diabetes or not, one is bound siguro talaga to regulate the food that he eats. as our hormones decrease, siguro decrease dina ng volume. para yakang yaka ng hormone levels.



After 3 weeks, of at least 6 tests per day -- I correlated that  when I get sleepy, or toes tingle --   sugar's up


i read na pag high sugar, malapot ang blood. so hirap to go through the body. therefore body needs to shut down and go into "safe mode".
