Nov 3, 2018 · Lighten Your Limbs With Friends in Diabetes/Endocrine System

I am goning to try my recumbant bike for one of my exercise periods. I had a hip replacement 6 years ago. That hip joint is very tight and walking even 15 minutes makes the hip muscles hurt a lot. I thought if I did the bicycle for 5-5-5 it would help restore some flexibility in both hips.

I was able to do the 5-5-5 three times my first day! I am so excited about this program that I spoke with my cardiologist. He suggested I try the first week's excercise program 3 times a day. I didn't believe I could do it but I tried. I did the first routine before breakfast, the second after lunch and the third after my evening meal. Not only did I feel good about the plan but I slept very well all night long.

Thank you so much for being so welcoming and encouraging. I was able to use the link provided by Carol (I think — I'm new to this and am not positive if the link was provided by Carol, Volunteer Mentor or Susu2). I now have the article prnted so I can easily follow along. I am really excited to try this program. It sounds like something I can do and the accountability will be wonderful. Prior to retiring I attended a pilates class twice a week — because I was committed to meet with the instructor — I know that commitment and accountability are necessary for me to succeed.

Please count me in. I will try to find the Plan that was sent out so I will be ready to start on November 1.

Sep 9, 2018 · Insulin Resistance and Fatty Liver in Diabetes/Endocrine System

My mother and her mother both became insulin dependent Type 2 diabetics in their 60s. I am 66 and have been taking metformin for the last 10 years to "fight insulin resistance"; plain generic metformin worked for 6 months then started making me throwup every morning; two weeks later I was having diarrhea as well as throwing up; went on Glumetz for 3 years until my insurance would no longer cover it; took glucophage generic for 1 year and developed same gastrointestinal problems. Went back on Glumetz even though medicare won't cover it and after 9 months I have the same stomach and bowel issues. My bowels are so runny that I literally walk around with tp in my rear to prevent accidents in public. What else can I take for insulin resistance?
