How to loose weight?
I am delighted to see you are off Insulin.
Keep up the efforts and keep your A1c under 7 with minimal to no low glucose episodes, as much as possible.
I understand your need to lose more weight. Amphetamine based treatments are deemed unsafe.
Endocrinologists prefer to prescribe a class of medications called GLP1 analogues. They are approved for diabetes control and facilitate weight loss as well. These medications work at multiple levels. They give the brain a sense of satiety, and also slow the stomach's emptying of food thereby resulting in a feeling of fullness after eating a small portion. Additionally, they enhance the body's insulin secretion and suppress a hormone called glucagon which tends to raise blood glucoses.
Ask your doctor if you are a candidate for such a medication.
Moreover, there are 2 other medications approved for diabetes that cause weight loss too. One of them is called Metformin. If you are not already on it, then speak with your healthcare provider about this too.
The other one is a newly launched category called SGLT2 inhibitors. Ask you endocrinologist if these are suitable options for you.
I see you are in Arizona. Physicians licensed in other states, but not in Arizona are not permitted to prescribe medication to Arizona residents. Recently there was a proposal to change this law in order to encourage telemedicine.
Besides, the objective of this forum is only guidance and not actual prescribing
