For those of you who keep talking about cold air. I stongly recommend that you look into it - google will help - and go to a workshop. Effects of coffee and caffeine anhydrous on strength and sprint performance. Still even the ADA suggests that watching your calories is more important then your sugar intake. May 29, at 5:



I personally limit my diet sodas to two daily, and many days I drink none. Drink carbonated soda or soft drinks at your peril. My sugar level jumps immediately if I drink one 33cl can. I avoid sugary soda. Having consumed a lot daily, the doctors recognized my Diabetes after I had my heart attack. That is a misconception. Diabetes is caused by the lack of insulin in the pancreas.

Hope this info helps! Water fills you up in between meals and eating non salted mix of walnuts and almonds etc. Diabetes is caused by too many calories that contain simple sugars and raise glucose levels fast. The insulin is the problem. After time the cell receptors occurring in the hormone insulin become less sensitive. Thus Metabolic Syndrome sets in and you become more insulin resistant. Your pancreas is still making insulin for T2 diabetes but the cells are not absorbing the glucose as normally as they used to.

Plus the liver is involved IGF and receptors in the liver also become less sensitive. Plus if you are obese or overweight you could have liver steatosis fatty liver which will not let the liver turn the absorbed glucose into glycogen energy for the muscles anymore. Potassium is great to improve liver stability to help absorb more glucose to turn it into glycogen. Of course this only works if someone loses weight and reduces their caloric intake. NASH in this country is what is leading to so much diabetic Dx a year also..

A1c is important to measure as well as eAG. A fructosamine blood test is wise and a measurement of the MCV mean corpuscular volume is also a good measure. Still even the ADA suggests that watching your calories is more important then your sugar intake. The 2 best measures for reversing or controlling T2 diabetes is still diet and exercise. More non starchy veggies and low glycemic fruits and nuts and less grains and eat legumes.

Whole grain breads are also deceiving. This was not meant to criticize you Brandy. Latest research is revealing that too much insulin in the blood is what is more problematic. I am not a physician but my wife passed away just 3 months ago from pancreatic cancer.

Her food diet was pretty good. She did not drink alcoholic beverages or smoke or do anything like that. She did consume at least two diet cokes a day at work.

When she was diagnosed I immediately went online to find the causes of pancreatic cancer and this was one of the possibilities and the main one. I had been trying to get her to quit those for probably 20 years as I have done research on the harmful effects of Aspertame alone. It is very bad for our bodies as well as the over consumption of white sugar in those sodas.

I miss her terribly! I wish I could tell the world how harmful these drinks are for the body. Water should be the main drink we partake of. I watch with horror as I see children get whatever drink they want at the fast food restaurants. I believe the health of our society is going downhill quickly because of our diets and it just seems no one is doing anything to curb this and especially parents who should teach their children to eat right.

Shannon, I am sorry for your loss. I just reviewed the causes of exocrine pancreatic cancer at UpToDate. As per many studies and a recent FDA report the above sugars and sodas can Disease your organs. Next time refer to the FDA news letters and an Endocrinologist for specialize in the endocrine. Sugars are the enemies of the pancreas, even consuming too much fruit can cause sugar elevation in the blood which in turn can bring on Diabetis. Your experience and mine are identical.

My consumption of Aspartame containing sodas was very high for many years before I was diagnosed to be diabetic at I use to drink diet soda until it started making me extremely sick my chest would tighten up and my back would hurt.

I even went to the emergency room thought I was having a hear attack. After I stopped drinking aspartame I have never had another incident like this. I would never have believed it was aspartame if it did not happen to me. I drank diet coke for 33 years once I hit 50 it started affecting me. I just want people to know it can hurt you. I wish I realized when I was having these attacks it was the diet coke it took be a few years to realize what was causing it.

My doctor thought it was just acid reflex or my gall stones. Once the diet coke was out of my diet for the last two years I have been feeling great. Aspartame is something to take out of your diet if you start feeling sick hope this saves someone years of pain. Read up more about aspartame, it causes you to eat more. It damages brain too. Check lab result studies in rats. Steve Parker, MD, shame on you! Plenty of studies show aspartame to be harmful to the brain and microbiome on Pubmed.

All added sugars and artificial sugars are harmful for those who are insulin resistant or have disease with chronic inflammation. This is not rocket science! What is your blood sugar now.. I good test is to ask what is my blood sugar two hours after eating a meal.

Another good test is the HbAic. I am almost 65 and from what I just read its not that important for me to have the tight tight control? I am almost anal in keeping my bs below 2hrpp and 1hrpp I am on a low carb of 50 or so carbs a day.

Am I going overboard? Rosiglitazone was esssentially taken off the market in the U. In the ideal scientific study, we alter ONE variable and see what happens. Better to be safe than sorry. A fasting BG of is not that bad. It could be lower. A good way to monitor your overall average eAG is taking As long as your A1C is under 6 you are doing well. But if your A1C is 5. Thanks for your information. What kind of target would you aim for?

I am still trying to lose weight and manage my PCOS. Should I restrict my carbs even more? Be sure to work with your own personal physician.

I might get a gram oral glucose tolerance test after three days of eating at least g of digestible carbs daily. An exercise program with both aerobic and resistance training components may help reduce after-meal blood sugar levels. This is some very helpful information, thank you!

I also take Prometrium 12 days out of the month I am obese and have been taking losing weight very seriously. I have noticed a slight trend where my fasting was It has never been that high , and then two hours after breakfast it will be around I was sure to retest each time to see if I had a faulty test, and they were correct. Have you had cases where diet and excercise have altered blood sugar like this?

I have a doctors appointment on the 15th, but I would appreciate any input or advice you could give. But I do have a few comments. Insulin helps to keep blood sugar levels from rising too high. For mostly mysterious reasons, some livers work more effectively to deactivate insulin in the early morning hours. Deactivation of insulin would allow blood sugars to rise, particularly fasting early AM levels.

An exercise program can help. Also eating relatively fewer carbs with the evening meal might help, moving those to earlier in the day, say lunchtime. There are a few other tricks, too. The dawn phenomenon effect may last till mid- or late-morning for some folks. Richard Bernstein recommends eating ony 6 g of digestible carb for breakfast, and 12 g for both lunch and dinner.

Check in with your personal physician. I am 61 male, my fasting suger to , random is perfact below what should i do to control it? I have a Ac1 level of 5. I am 30 years old, have not been active for 6 months but am willing to restart today my training. Blood glucose after 5 hrs. Then, my sugar readings were: Would I be considered a pre-diabetic? There are some diabetes and heart issues in the family history.

Good to hear from you, blogger You better check in with your personal physician for an accurate diagnosis. I am not diabetic. I have gotten many blood tests done, including the glucose tolerance test to see how my sugar levels change. The lab work has come out normal, which is good. But why am I still sometimes feeling weak or shaky? Over 20 common conditions can cause weakness and shakiness. Keep working with your personal physician to get to the bottom of it. I am a 65 year old male who is ytpe 2.

I am on Amaryl and do not test. My personal doctor of 25 years checks AIC every 3 months. Has ranged from 6. My fasting sugar was and I am scared especially after reading Mark Hymans book. I am 20 lbs overweight and have HBP and I do exercise regularly and count carbs. Should I see a specialist? I also take Simvistatin and my cholesteol is borderline. Should I try Medt. I have same MD for 25 years. No family history and my parents lived to 90 and I plan to buy your book.

Also why is eating cheese an issue. I have basically cut out pizza, rice and pasta-maybe once or twice a month for the latter 2 and I do not like sweets. Please read my Post, down below. Also Simvastatin daily for 20 years. Weight kg for 20 years. My Fasting Blood Sugar Level hovers around 4. This morning, my BS level was 4. Tested 3,5 hours later, my BS level was 6. Drink Red Wine with meals.

Plain Yoghurt without any fruit with Bees Honey. But avoid biscuits, cakes and sugary pasties. Then refrigerate to cool. Drink several cups a day, and the last cup before bedtime. There are some natural food supplements that can help improve low blood pressure like Licorice. Remember to look out for this useful web portal http: I have just been diagnosed with type 2 and am trying to get a handle on my blood sugar levels through testing periodically per my doctors instructions.

I have been ranging before meals 90 to Two housrs after meals I range between and First thing in the morning I range from 90 to I am dieting and exercising. Am I wrong or are these good numbers? I am 66, have lost 10 Lbs in the last month since I began testing. She has not put him on any oral hypoglycemics and is going to check his labs in 3 months. She told him to exercise and loose 20 lbs. Is he diabetic or pre-diabetic? Treatment approach to prediabetes and mild type 2 diabetes would be pretty much the same.

I am 74 and have been a type 2 diabetic for some 20 years. I take a variety of pills and my average A1C is always over 7 but less than 8. After I eat, a couple of hours later, it is around I have had several surgeries in my stomach area and I think this might be a problem.

Thanks for the reply. I was just wondering if you thought all the stomach surgeries I have had were causing me part of my problem. I can keep my blood sugar in check, although I had been having a real hard time the past six months or so.

I would hit the sack with a blood sugar around , and wake up with it around or so. With some Internet research I learned that sleep deprivation does impact blood sugar. I had been napping on my break from work between 2pm and 5pm. This is very helpful blog post and useful to see all the thresholds and targets in one place. My hbA1C was at 6. Here is the difficulty that I have with the hbA1C 6. My numbers were in the prediabetic range and equal to lower end of the hbA1C target that you set though admittedly my fasting glucose was higher.

Yet, I suffered many symptoms of diabetes, including peripheral neuropathy, obesity, fatigue after meals, dry mouth, tendonitis, arthritis and diabetic dermopathy shin spots.

Thus, I feel it is essential to set a much more rigorous target for myself than you do for your patients. Since going on a low carb diet, some of the symptoms have mostly disappeared—notably the more classic diabetic symptoms—peripheral neuropathy, obesity down 35 lbs , and arthritis.

Hi my name is Dee, I am a type 1 diabetic. My numbers are between and over night. I am suppose to be taking insulin 40g twice a day just before my meal. Now when I just excersize after meals my numbers drop in a normal range. Also my age is What could the problem be?

It would not be safe for me to give personal medical advice over the Internet. I bet your regular doctor has some ideas. Thanks for the website. It clears up a lot of things my doctor has been trying to explain. Will be bookmarking this and will return often to visit. Another thing is it better to exercise one hour after meal or two hours?

Hussain, is too high. Ease off on the carbs. I feel tiered and dizzy. I am 26 years old. My height is cm but I weigh 88 kg. I have been self monitoring my blood sugar on and off though I have never visited doctor. I do so because my dad is also suffering from diabetic type 2. My CBG levels always come in the range Should I be concerned?? I have one problem too. I am living a sedentary lifestyle as I am busy in studies. What about getting a lower A1C without medication?

I am a 61 year old male. In March , I had an A1c of 6. It is now 5. I did it with low carb, whole food, no sugar diet with 5 to 7 hours a week of exercise… no medication! Have a friend with even more dramatic results after sharing with him what I was able to do. He had an A1c of 10! First 4 months he used medication, then went with diet and exercise alone and got much better results after only one week on Newcastle protocol with no medication.

Blaine, thanks for your inspirational comments. I have no direct knowledge of how much influence the pharmaceutical industry has over the guideline developers. Clearly, using drugs instead of diet to control blood sugars benefits the drug sellers. The societal move to better diet and away from drugs esp. At age 68, Dr says my fasting glucose level of and 4 months later, need to be reduced. Where do I find out which foods may make my glucose rise 10 pts?

A glass of wine raises it how much? A potato or spaghetti for dinner — not much, of course, to keep my weight down. Madlyn, the only way to see how different foods affect your particular blood sugar would be to get a home glucose meter and check it hours after a meal.

Even the huge machines in labs may not be that accurate. The a home meter makes more sense. I am taking my meds everyday and exercise daily Metformin Everyday im doing my exercise in threadmill for one hour and mention there that i burned calories.. I am male,69 years old.

My latest fasting plasma glucose some days ago was 5. I did not ask for any hba1c to accompany it. Six months ago,however, my fasting plasma glucose was less at 4.

Both tests were done by reliable hospital lab. Am i prediabetic or insulin-resistant in your view,judging from these numbers? Might be helpful to check a serum glucose 2 hours after a 75 gram oral glucose load. Or just check another fasting glucose and HgbA1c in six months.

If any of this contradicts your personal physician, go with his ideas. He knows the full details of your situation. No way I can say if you have insulin resistance. If your body mass index is over 30, odds are about 7 in 10 that you are resistance. Lillian I just took my glucose reading and it has me concerned. My reading was E I have never seen this before. What does this mean? What should I do if anything?

Contact your doctor with those questions. My 14 yr old son, who we tested twice, during a biology exercise, showed a 49 reading on my blood glucose meter. A walk in clinic dr. Said it was normal for teens blood to dip down to such a low level. I havent found info. To support his claim. As long as he was feeling fine at 49, it may be nothing to worry about. I do know that some athletes during heavy exertion will dip below 50 and never know it. I wanted to know is if 76 was too low for a diabetic.

It only told me averages. My nurse practioner says it is. Thanks I do injoy the info you have for someone my age. My brother was recently diangosed with type 2 diabetes and already has neouropy in his feet. Does this mean he has had this for a long time? Also should he seek out a diabetec dr. Or will a general practitioner do as well? The dr didnt help with diet , just gave him some melformin and said come back in 3 months, very frustrating!!!!

Many diabetics already have neuropathy or other complications at the time of diagnosis. Many, but not all, general practitioners are well-equipped to treat T2 diabetes. Simply prescribing metformin without doing anything else for a brand-new diabetic is inadequate.

I was eating the SAD so after 3 months following the paleo diet I can say I rarely have an hypoglycemic episode. It started getting better and better.

Well suffering from RH for more than a year certaintly caused me cortisol dysregulation as well and adrenal issues so I would like to know what is happening now is cause for concern or I should ignore it.

My fasting blood sugar used to be 70 and now is always What I mean is if I eat a meal the pattern is for eg: When I wake up around 8. Why does this happen? Should I be concern about any of these new facts or is everything finally ok? Sorry for bothering and thank you for your help. I like your recent blood sugar results. Be sure to share them with your personal physician. Your English is good!

She has a good majority of the symptoms and I have been checking her. Her levels barely get over a hundred, the lowest fasting she has had is 68 and the highest is Any info would be appreciated. She does have an appointment on the 28th. Thank you for your time. I bet for kids between 6 and 18, the normal range is quite similar to adults.

Keep that appointment with her doctor. My husband has reactive hypoglycemia and has developed diabetic shin spots, the kind that are red, scaly and indented. I knew diabetics got them but have you ever seen someone with reactive hypoglycemia develop them? It makes me wonder if diabetic shin spots can be due to insulin spikes rather than sugar spikes. Which are conditions of both hyper and hypoglycemics, right? I had scabby shin spots for a couple of summers.

My fasting glucose and Hba1c was in the prediabetic range. Roller coaster blood sugars even if not in the diabetic range can be sign of carbohydrate intolerance, and the result can be symptoms typical of diabetes. I also had peripheral neuropathy. If this is correct can he expect other complications associated with diabetes? I have read that uncontrolled reactive hypoglycemia can be a precursor to insulin resistance.

Fortunately, he is taking his condition seriously, by avoiding carbs and not skipping meals he has managed to control the extreme fluctuations. He feels much better and has lost 20 of the 30 extra pounds he has been carrying around for the last few years. I passed the 3 hour glucose test my third hour was slightly elevated but they said I passed. Testing for a week just in case. Fasting has to be between and one hour post meals have to be under How many high readings would you consider someone to have GD?

What if the high readings are only after breakfast? My breakfast ranges from , fasting is 90 or below, and other meals are or below. My fasting blood sugar level is between 4. I have had cardiac surgery, and have high blood pressure.

I am 72 years old. Olan, I never worry about metformin causing kidney stones. Must be rare if happens at all. I have been a diabetic for 15 years and 62 yrs. Started as Type 2 and transitioned to Type 1 a few years ago. Not overweight and no family history.

My AIC has been in the 7. I am experiencing signs of peripheral neuropathy but also had two peroneal nerve entrapments that have been repaired and spinal stenosis which has not been treated.

Yes, the calf pain and ankle weakness could be from peripheral neuropathy or spinal stenosis, among other possibilities. Work with your doctor on those; see a neurologist if needed for clarification. I had debilitating peripheral neuropathy with an hbA1C of 6. When I went on a low carb diet, it got much better. Now I am doing Wahls Protocol to help the nerves grow back.

I thought it might be helpful for them if I did that. All my research kept pointing to diabetes, which I thought was impossible given my physical state and the lack of diabetes in my family, but to be on the safe side, I bought a blood sugar monitor and gathered the below results:. Fasting bs level — 59 1 hour after a bagel — 2 hours after the bagel — 3 hours after the bagel — 70 1 hour after lunch — Are these normal levels?

My Dad is a doctor, and he said that is a bit high. I woke up checked my fasting blood sugar and it was I consumed 4 glucose tablets because I felt shaky.

I checked it again and it was ! I wonder if something else was causing the shakes. Hi, Myself 29yrs old female, yesterday I had a check for blood glucose as prescribed by my physician, the results are as follows:.

I already had thyroid issues for a few years and have had inflammatory bowel disease since teenager, 48 now. During a workup to try to get to the bottom of symptoms, my endocrinologist did a GAD antibody test on me.

Mine was positive, but my blood sugars were not extreme. The very rare reports of growth plate fractures in children who trained with weights occurred as a result of inadequate supervision, improper form or excess weight, and there have been no reports of injuries to growth plates in youth training programs that followed established guidelines.

Younger children are at greater risk of injury than adults if they drop a weight on themselves or perform an exercise incorrectly; further, they may lack understanding of, or ignore the safety precautions around weight training equipment. As a result, supervision of minors is considered vital to ensuring the safety of any youth engaging in strength training. Strength training is the fourth most popular form of fitness in Australia. Some points of the opposing view of strength training in young adolescence are stunted growth, health and bone problems in later stages of life and unhealthy eating habits.

There is no link between any prolonged health risks and strength training in pre-adolescence if the procedures of strength training are followed correctly and under suitable supervision. Strength training for pre-adolescents should focus on skills and techniques. Children should only work on strengthening all the big muscle groups, using free weight and body weight movements with relatively light loads.

The benefits of these practices include increased strength performance, injury prevention and learning good training principles. Older adults are prone to loss of muscle strength. Under-dosed strength training programs should be avoided in favor of a program which matches the abilities and goals of the person exercising. In setting up an exercise program for an older adult, they should go through a baseline fitness assessment to determine their current limits.

Any exercise program for older adults should match the intensity, frequency, and duration of exercise that the person can perform. The program should have a goal of increased strength as compared to the baseline measurement. Recommended training for older adults is three times a week of light strength training exercises. Exercise machines are a commonly used equipment in a gym setting, including treadmills with exercises such as walking or light jogging.

Home-based exercises should usually consist of body weight or elastic band exercises that maintain a low level of impact on the muscles. Weights can also be used by older adults if they maintain a lighter weight load with an average amount of repetitions 10—12 reps with suitable supervision. It is important for older adults to maintain a light level of strength training with low levels of impact to avoid injuries. Older people who exercise against a resistance or force become stronger.

Views Read Edit View history. Granted that has nothing to do with you, but you need to know from an actual sufferer of this condition that these wives tales and yarns being spun to help heel spur and plantar fasciitis are legends and myths!!!! The only thing that would actually address this situation is surgical. Barefoot running… are you on crack? Gluten free diet… this is an actual cure?

I do know that the pain of plantar fasciitis can make you as grumpy as hell. I went to see my GP as I wanted surgery pronto as I had a London marathon place and no real chance of being able to maintain a training plan. She sent me away to take ibuprofen and I was furious.

I did start to take the ibuprofen 3 times a day but having no faith I also started the paleo diet gluten free, low inflammatory. My partner is convinced it was the ibuprofen while I am convinced it was the low inflammatory diet. But we will never know for sure. I put it out there for people who are prepared to do their own experiments.

I note from your comment that you are constantly on the go, working on your feet, I on the other hand have a sedentary job and the only trigger was an occasional run. I was able to drop the running while I dabbled with other potentially crackpot ideas, you presumably will not have that luxury. That was until I started a Paleo diet 7mths ago and now live pain free, i can wear any shoes I like, go barefoot and even run again.

Paleo has changed my life in so many ways, it works, I have reduced the inflammation and feel 15 years younger. It certainly makes sense to me, that the Paleo diet would cure PF. We know that Carbs raise insulin and cause inflammation, and PF is inflammation.

I have had it for a year, have tried orthotics terrible , night splints also terrible , myofascial and trigger point massage expensive , ice, heat, Crocs best option to walk if you have to be on your feet , taping, lacrosse ball and foam rolling, stretching very bad , rest, exercise, fish oil, magnesium, I even rubbed lemon essential oil on it yes, I read it online.

Nothing completely resolved it. I am here because I read Dr. I will try it and re-post with my results. Thanks for your comment. Strangely when it came through i was walking in the park listening to a recent Bulletproof Exec podcast which featured Dr William Davis of Wheat Belly. He has a new book coming out which looks interesting — Undoctored. Anyway, I wish you well with your attempt to find a long lasting cure for PF.

I am thankfully still free of the scourge. Come back and let us know how your dietary changes affect the problem. I used to get up out of bed or get up out of my chair and have to shuffle for the first 10 paces because my heels would hurt.

I thought this was normal. Recently I have been eating proteins only in an attempt to loose a few pounds. I am a WM aged 49, 6. Today, though, I had a mighty craving for toasted cheese and ham sandwiches and had 2 of those.

Have had PF for 13 months in left heel and two months ago it began in the other. Have been to several doctors and tried every orthotic, night splint etc. The pain in left heel is so bad I am practically housebound and can barely walk from chair to bed at night.

The next day I am pain free all day long. But until now, I had not made the connection. So I took one the last two nights as a test, and sure enough, no pain.

So now I am going to follow your plan, except that I will only take the one ibuprofen pill at night, for 2 weeks straight. And I am going to cut out all grains and sugars but just cannot eat meat.

Hopefully eating meat is not important for healing.
