I was told that my T2D was steroid induced. I've been taking Prednisolone since Oct 2015; started @ 15mg and now at 3mg.
Thank you for the information, Polylinc. What has your doctor said since they put you on it? Any changes?
Diagnosed T2. 10 years ago. Never been overweight & now quite skinny so not typical T2. Controlled with lifestyle changes only.
Are you counting carbs. for each meal and snack?
Sorry I might have replied to the wrong thread:
I consume only low and no added sugars, I have stopped consuming many foods and habits from my diet as I have recently been told I am pre-diabetic, CKD stage3, high cholesterol, osteoarthritis.
Low and no sugars in my diet, I’m slowly adjusting and have illuminated many foods and additives.
Yes definitely type 1 although has been questionable!!! Long story 🤔
They go up and down now on metformin aswell! Number's up and down.
It's a very long story but I had to have a urine test just a couple of months ago. As my body acts as though I'm a type 2 but had this test that was sent to Exeter and I'm definitely a type 1been injecting for 22 year's.
But now I am becoming insulin resistant
And putting on loads of weight
Yes I see a top consultant every 6 months
Its 53 years of T1 this June. "Ask me if I like injections ?" I have had up to 4 a day since being 3. When England WON the world cup ! . Thks Activity Keep at it pls
When I look at some peoples names I get a feeling straight away what type of person they are. Kind or Nice ?
I took kenacarta steroids injections for keloids in 1979. I got both BP and sugar immediately at the age of 30. Doctor confirmed that it is medicine provoked. Now I am 70 and managing with insulin for the last 3 years. Regarding my general health, except BP and sugar I don't have any other problem. Knee pain osteoarthritis is there for the last 10 years which is age related. I am doing yoga and exercise for the last mire than 50, years.
I have pre-diabetes HBAc 44. Possibly due to removal of 1/2 pancreas. My GP seems to think diabetes is inevitable and seems to be just waiting for it to happen. It will most likely be type 3c.
I've had different responses from different medics. My current GP seems to think diabetes is going to happen anyway and is only prepared to test my HbA1c yearly. My consultant wasn't bothered - no need to change diet, but my previous GP had me on low carb diet.
I'm not sure the GP's or nurses have come across type 3c before. From what I've read the management is a bit different.
Because I'm motivated to slow down the progression to diabetes I'm trying various things myself - low carb + exercise of course but also cider vinegar before meals, cinnamon, eating veg before protein before carbs. I will need to get my HbA1c tests done privately in order to get some idea of whether any of this is working.
It would be great to hear of any other ideas and also from any-one else in a similar position .
