  • I would suggest that first you see a good endocrinologist, Sounds like you haven't done that! The obvious answer is that you need more insulin, but I doubt that you have had the needed training to know what to do, or you wouldn't be asking the question. Talk to your doctor about how to get the needed training. Most doctors send their diabetic patients to a CDE, (Certified Diabetes educator), for the training that they don't have time to provide. You will also need to see a dietition to learn about proper diet regulation. Exercise is also important for Type 2 Diabetes.

  • Run far away from traditional medical diabetes treatment. Decrease carbs greatly, increase fat and protein. The giant increase in diabetes and obesity began when we were told not to eat fats and increase carbs. Eating good fat (the bad is trans and saturated filled with chemicals so go grass fed beef and organic there) will slow down your digestion and greatly reduce the blood sugar spikes that often occur after eating a regular diet. Access www.homodietnet.firm, www.drjacktips.com for Jack's book "The Pro-Vita Plan for Optimal Health" which has a great eating plan for stabilizing sugar levels. More drugs does not treat the cause, only the symptom. Use 2 tablespoons of organic apple cider vinegar and / or 1 tablespoon of organic cinnamon with each meal. Doing either of these decreases the spike by 20%. You may also want to access www.mercola.com and search for diabetes. I have blood sugar challenges and am an "alternative" doc. Please note that many who follow current diabetic recommendations do not actually improve, they slowly get worse and worse.

Halo JAIKINGFirst, ask your physician how to titrate your intake of Insulin.Second, Go to the www.glycemicindex.com and learn about human nutrition. Do not use Atkins Recommendations, because you can end with KetoAsidosis and if you do not do something about your Insulin you can end with Not Ketotic Hyper Glycemic Hyper Osmolar COMA.Don

Hallo RALPHYou write: “Decrease carbs greatly, increase fat and protein.This is the Atkins Recommendation. If you have DM, then it can be deadly for you. Diabetic shod intake minimum 150 gram Carbohydrates (Glicid) / Day, because it is needed by the Mitochondrial process ( Krebs Cycle i.e. Tricarboxylic acid (TCA) Cycle and the biological respiration chain).If you do not intake Carbohydrate, then the catabolic process in your Mitochondria will result in production of Keaton’s and the risk is you can become KetoAsidosis.If you like to know about this, you can find it in the book of Clinical Biochemistry.You write: “Use 2 tablespoons of organic apple cider vinegar”It is OK, because the Vinegar lowers the nutrition’s Glycemic Index (GI).Go to the www.glycemicindex.com and learn about human nutrition. Eating human nutrition products with low GI, fewer than 50 or best under 20 is the best method to control the big amplitudes of the blood glucose (BG). If you eat products with GI 20, then your BG will come op with 2 or 3 mmol/l and not more. The result is you do not need rapid Insulin types before meal and it is only necessary to intake a Basal Insulin i.e. “Levemir” or something else ones on day and not more (DM-II).In the theory of the GI, there is another explanations i.e. Glycemic Load (GB). The Carbohydrate make Loads on your body. You can not make addition of the GI, but you can make that with the GB. You calculate the GB = (products GI) x (amount Carbohydrate in gram you eat) / 100. An analogy for GB is: If you drink one decilitre alcohol at ones, then you will be drunk about no time. If you enjoy the same amount of alcohol over the time i.e. slowly for about 180 minutes, then you will intake the same amount of the alcohol but you will not be drunk.So is it with the products with low GI. The Glucose of these products with low GI will be taken op in your Blood not fast but very slowly and your body load will be low. The theory recommended eating products with GB under 10. On the site www.glycemicindex.com you can find a very big Database with almost all human nutrition products. DM is chronic disease and he people are on many different development stages. Cooperative work with Your Physician can result in the correct treatment of your problem with DM.YOU SHUD NOT “Run far away from traditional medical diabetes treatment”, it is wrong.Sincerely YoursDon

  • Hi I am suffering from type II diabetes mellitus. But my blood sugar level is remaining still high. I am taking insulin injection daily but still my blood sugar level is unchanged. How to reduce my blood sugar level and what are the diets I should take to control type II diabetes mellitus. For doctors of UCTC diabetes treatment is the main professional task that is always fulfilled up to the mark. But the fact that diabetes cannot be cured is significant point. Diabetes of the second type is usually treated just to keep the level of sugar in blood up to the norm. It is important to reach control over the symptomatic features of the disease and to minimize the risk of complications in future.
