How are you today?
What do you do, apart from your medicines, to control your diabetes (maintain a healthy diet, sport)? Is it effective?

For diabetic 2 patient loosing weight is the best option by far if you have a genuine wish to improve your diabetic health. There are now injecting medicines that aid your weight loss that you can discuss with your GP which have produced some weight reduction.

Well said Rob.
I'm Type II and the coronary consultant told me to restrict my fluid intake to 1.5 litres per day, two weeks ago. It's really hard staying within the limit to start with but you soon get used to it. As a result of this new regime I have lost 1 stone 2 lbs (7.25 KG) of fluid. I can breathe easier and move around without so much effort. My Blood/Sugar readings have levelled out to between 4.7 and 8.5 mmol/L. I feel a lot better for the new regime.
Ask your GP about reducing your fluid intake?
I've been struggling with excess weight for years now.. mostly diet and exercise even though I'm no good at sports and never liked exercising.
never heard of any injections that can help!! thanks a lot I''ll ask my GP about this.
There is also specific weight reducing drugs that are on offer to Diabetics, try asking your GP about such addition treatment. You can also look at various bands or staples on your Stomach, my bother had one and did lead to weight loss!
