Diet woes with Type 2 Diabetes. Too many conflicting diets.

Posted by denny2019 @denny2019, Oct 30, 2019

Do i follow keto? There is just too many fad type of diets. I would like advice on what to eat. I have type 2 with a 6.7 a1c. About 165 lbs. Exercise 15 minutes walking/jogging 5 times a week. Trying to get it to 30 minutes. BTW i take 1000mg metformin 2x day and a shot of Trulicity once a week. Thanks in advance.

@retiredteacher I have not used turmeric, does your friend drink it or put it on food? I have made golden milk that uses turmeric.

I did find some relief for sore shins from a CBD cream that I bought at Whole Foods. I had walked for too long on the treadmill. Per my transplant team, I should not ingest CBD but it is OK to use it topically.

Thanks, I am glad to know more about CBD. My friend insists it is safe and she has no knowledge but word of mouth to go by. I am not going to trust her opinion when she has not used it herself and is not in a position to know the facts. Dorisena

When it comes to neurological deficits, I have studied much for many years since my mother had her debilitating stroke and my husband went downhill with obvious dementia which was never diagnosed or treated. I would rather do exercise for my brain than worry about losing it. So I keep at the Soduku puzzles every day and if I can get through them, it is a good day whether or not my bank book gets balanced. I don't get out enough to overdraw my accounts. And I gave up wine because of the diabetes. It is good that I like math because I think exercise is good for the brain. Dorisena

@contentandwell JK, it's a capsule taken twice a day. There are many brands. She told me what to look for so I would get what her dr. recommended when she started taking it. She says it does help her and her sister. As soon as I get to the pharmacy, I'm going to give it a try.

@retiredteacher I will look into that. I think a little in milk is fine for me but when you get to a larger amount as in capsules I definitely feel the need to check with transplant.
