  • you look reducing weight itself you can get a high amount of advantages towards diabetes management.

    can you give your height weight.

    metformin side effects are generally short lived, means it the diarrhea etc will go away after a few weeks.

    another thing

    insulin is not a proper substitute for metformin,

    though if it works well and good.

    there are other medicines like

    pioglitazone which act somewhat similar to metformin.

    also , remember you must know carb counting if you use insulin

    and also learn to titrate the dose of insulin and the carbs you take.otherwise you gain weight .

    good luck

  • pioglitazone is a bad drug. Anilgupta who fractured his wrist will tell you as he has been using this drug. This drug is banned in many countries. It was banned in India also but banning caused impacted 700 crore market for this drug so lot of lobbying got this drug back.

    As for CURE, any claim for CURE is a HOAX. Diabetes cannot be cured.

    Cut down carbs drastically in your diet and replace with good fats and your need for insulin will automatically come down. Many have done this and benefited.

  • pioglitazone is a very good is the only drug that can act as a substitute when metformin fails.

    do not listen to antimedical people.

    their knowledge of insulin or tablets is just zero.

    consult your doctor,

  • "Pioglitazone can cause fluid retention and peripheral edema. As a result, it may precipitate congestive heart failure (which worsens with fluid overload in those at risk). It may cause anemia. Mild weight gain is common due to increase in subcutaneous adipose tissue. In studies, patients on pioglitazone had an increased proportion of upper respiratory tract infection, sinusitis, headache, myalgia and tooth problems.

    Chronic administration of the drug has led to occasional instances of cholestatic hepatitis, reversible upon drug discontinuation."

    The above is from WIKI. It also causes upper arm fractures, bladder cancer etc also.

    This drug is banned in many countries.

    Also :

    It doesn't take long to research about this drug and see if it is really safe.

  • give me your insulin doses and types . i will look in.

    high fbs with insulin can be dawn phenomenon or even somogyi.

    it is a bit complicated.

  • Dr Bernstein on somogyi effect:

  • arunima -- Why break your head on something that you can never find long-term?

    (1) Just take normal wheat.

    (2) Prepare it like LW (boiling with salt water etc)

    (3) Eat it the way it is recommended for LW.

    (4) Check your numbers.

    Eating rotee/chapati made from long wheat isn't going to reduce blood sugar anyways. So try the above till the time you can find that special wheat which cures diabetes.

    Meanwhile, take a look at following thread when you have time:
