Thanks for the post! My 6yr old son is type 1, we use the aviva expert for school and home as i need to upload it to diasend for the quarterly hospital review. I might suggest using something like that as he has separate meter for ketones meaning seperate strips.

They make the money from the testing strips and want people to turn to there brand. I bet there are loads of winner. Especially if you select a different brand and a high number of tests per week. To be fair I do like my contour tester, small and compact works for me

Thanks enjoy them Agree I am not diabetic my self but my P. grandfather(RIP) Mum(RIP) were, so I am potential diabetic and recently just escaping the borderline B.S level tests I have cut my sugar intake in teas and coffees to near negligible i.e. from putting in some 6 tsp along with something sweet like cakes, biscuits soon adds up, down to 2 or even 1 and still some biscuits and cakes can't give up.... having been recently tested for fatty liver, despite being on healthiest veg diet (bar the above confession) life style i.e. no fizzy drinks and alcohol or smoking.... so there are healthy choices which will come in handy. With more juicing and healthy lifestyle I have been told my liver has improved over the year. Remember Liver is the only self repairing organ so much after abuse if you come back to a healthy eating and lifestyle i.e. exercises you can reverse almost a Cirrhotic liver back to near 100% functionality. The only thing I don't agree with is the artificial sweeteners which I will not use. Although there is no medical evidence for any thing artificial including some of the E num's I will keep away from. Keep your Liver healthy is the motto the rest will be taken care of by it self

dreamager

Hence me asking for the clarification ;)

shakeyjake66

Don't th Don't think anyone would suggest stopping insulin injections for somebody who's body has completely stopped producing insulin. Pretty much the only medication where it wouldn't be possible to negate the need for it using dietary restrictions would be insulin. Anybody who produces at least some insulin can have their insulin resistance improved by exercise, dietary changes and also, limiting the amount of carbohydrates in their meals decreases the need for large amounts of insulin to be produced. It's quite possible to come off medication in many cases, as long as blood glucose levels are monitored.

dreamager

The removing the medication part would be the bad part for type 1 diabetes. I have a friend whose crazy father thought it was ok to stick her on such diets and refuse to let her get any medication because 'he knew better'. She ended up in a coma and barely survived. Since then she has had 2 strokes because of the irreparable vascular damage it has caused and probably has a much shorter lifespan. There's is nothing wrong with the diet suggestions, but anyone advising that can remove the need for medication ie. insulin, is irresponsible and naive

Simon_G

It may not cause it but it certainly increases the chance of having a hypo (this is a confirmed side effect as stated in the paperwork that comes with the tablets). I was on normal release metformin and was getting hypos due to the tablets. Put on the slow release with the same diet, and not had any ill effects for months. The thing with diabetes is that its not a one size fits all illness. What meds/diet works for one person will not always work for another. For example, I was having hypos at normal blood sugar levels, which by all accounts "could never happen", but the tests proved otherwise. I think that it is totally irresponsible for people to make claims like there have been in this thread due to the fact that everyone is different and will react differently. Even the medical staff, the ones who are supposed to know, know very little in my experiences and in a lot of cases are part of the cause of the incorrect information that is being given out to newly diagnosed patients. My advice is to do your own research, take an active role in your own care and see what works and doesn't work for YOU.

Prufrock

I don't know where your point comes from considering the poster in question stated in his initial reply that he's on injection therapy for his diabetes, just not insulin. In other words, he's probably on exenatide, thus his BMs require closer monitoring (as you have just stated in your reply). At no point did he say he was only taking oral medication. The opposite is true, in fact. As for my relatives; my dad went from being diagnosed with type 2 and put on a diet controlled therapy to metformin, then metformin and glicazide, then finally being put on exenatide within a year of initial diagnosis. That's how quickly diabetes can get worse. He's been on exenatide for 3 years now, with no substantial weight loss after the first 3 months, but his BMs are remaining steady.

DrJayDee86

I think 'you're wrong' is a little blunt, as it depends what tabs her hubby is on. I guess he has not yet been supplied with a meter for a reason, and if GP or endo was concerned, they would be ensuring he did his BN's regularly. In people with well controlled DM on just metformin with satisfactory BM's, random BM's here and there is not going to alter management; that is the role of HbA1c - if it were not at satisfactory levels, then they may introduce a BM machine and get the person to do recordings. People on exenatide are, as you know, fairly far down the line of T2DM and this is only introduced when the only other option is insulin and the person is overweight and yes indeed those on exenatide and insulin DO need to do regular BM recordings, as do certain other situations as outlined below. My point is that your relatives on insulin and exenatide are far away from this person's simple likely metformin treatment, and those management is very different. Even so, the continuation of exenatide relies on a person's HbA1c and body weight falling over 6 months, so the regular BM's do not actually alter management anyway. NICE guideline: Self -monitoring of plasma glucose should be available to those on insulin treatment, to those on oral glucose-lowering medications, to provide information on hypoglycaemia, to assess changes in glucose control resulting from medications and lifestyle changes, to monitor changes during intercurrent illnesstoensure safety during activities, including driving Please note metformin does NOT lower plasma glucose and does NOT cause hypoglycaemia.
