Consult your doctor first and if he advises weight loss for better control of your blood sugar, my plan may help, it has helped me. Consult and follow up with your doctor before starting any diet. Follow your sugars carefully. If you are taking any medications to lower your blood sugar, the medications may need to be changed as you lose the weight or if your blood sugars gets too low. Symptoms of a low blood sugar include lightheadedness, confusion, passing out, feeling dizzi, shaky, sweaty. This site is just for Diabetes Mellitus type 2, the insulin resistant type of diabetes, formerly known as adult onset diabetes in individuals who are overweight. There are a few individuals who are not overweight, but probably 99% are overweight and respond to weight loss. This advise does not apply to Diabetes Mellitus type 1, the insulin insufficient form of diabetes, formerly known as Juvenile Onset Diabetes. These individuals do not make enough insulin. There are also some people who have had Diabetes Mellitus type 2 for a prolonged period of time who eventually also do not make enough insulin and must be treated more like Diabetes Mellitus type 1. Again consult and follow up with your doctor.
