HELLO & WELCOME TO HCM FORUM

IN DIABETES, IF YOU ARE OVERWEIGHT , THEN BODY IS NOT ABLE TO UTILIZE GLUCOSE DUE TO INSULIN INSENSITIVITY IN SUCH CASES, BODY START UTILIZING PROTEIN & FAT AND PATIENT START LOOSING WEIGHT.

YOU SHOULD TAKE YOUR BLOOD SUGAR BOTH FASTING & POSTPRANDIAL AND MAKE IT SURE THAT BOTH ARE IN CONTROLLED MANNER THEN ONLY YOUR METABOLISM IS MAINTAINED BY UTILIZING BLOOD SUGAR AND STOP UTILIZING PROTEIN & FAT

LOOSING WEIGHT IN DIABETES IS ALSO HELPFUL AND MAY BE BECAUSE OF DRUGS GIVEN FOR BLOOD GLUCOSE CONTROL


YOU SHOULD ALSO CONSULT TO PHYSICIAN

What is your age? How much weight have you lost? What is your blood sugar? If you are a diabetic with uncontrolled sugars with severe weight loss, you might need Insulin. Please provide the details.
