: : I AM A DIABETIC WHO CAN NOT LOOSE ON THE LOW CARB DIET, CAN YOU HELP. BRRN ON IT FOR A YEAR
: I can't offer much help, but can tell you that the meds that are prescribed for diabetes orally cause major weight gain. I've stuck with low carb just to keep from gaining weight and so far have been successful in keeping the weight gain from drugs down. I have lost about 9 lbs. on low carb, but not anything spectacular. This is also from being on the diet long term. If you start eating carbs again, you will most likely gain weight and get your blood sugar out of control. I also do some exercise like yard work and walking. It's an uphill battle, I'm afraid. You might want to have your thyroid checked to see if you have a problem with that. You have plenty of company with this problem is all I have to say.
You are correct and I have been on a low carb diet for over 2 years now and no wieght gain and my sugar is at the absolute normal range now. I am not on meds and have type 2 diabetes. There are many good low carb diet books available in book stores. We are what is refered to as Insulin Resistant. I am just happy having normal blood sugar reading now.
