Firstly congrats on your achievement. You might have reached the phase of saturation right now. Whether you need to loose weight are not depends on your BMI. Anyway continue the good work. Diet and exercise is the key. If your BMI is less than 25, then there is no need to loose weight, but just maintain it the same.

Hello, I m a 76 year old woman. I m morbidly obese, five feet tall with 224 lbs on my body. I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes many years ago. I m a steady user of both Lantus and Forosemide. In 2000 I had open-heart surgery for a double bypass. Pryor to that I had a heart attack in 1998 for which I was stented with one stent. (I coded for 45 seconds before the new diagnosis could be determined). The Bypass started to fail in 2010 or 2011. Although both bypass arteries were failing, only one could could be stented. The doctor told me that s the last surgery my heart could have and if any other problems arose I was SOL . I was told by two of their cardiologists that my heart was at least 10 to 15 yrs older than the rest of my body. Now, my doctor, (GP) has told me my kidneys are in chronic condition, with nothing mentioned to me prior to this time. Here on the internet, I can t seem to pin down diatery changes I need to help myself get better. I ve read: No grains, no canned foods, no meats unless it specificly states no phosphorus , no whole wheat, no dairy foods (my Greek yogurt??) The only cheese I eat is a slice of my special French imported Swiss chees about twice a week. The list goes on and on. I want to know what foods I can and canNOT eat to make recipes I can actually create! If you or someone you know could help me I sure would appreciate it. Other conditions now and in the past you need to know, please let me know. Thank you!

I m a Type 2 Diabetic aged 52 and will be 53 years old this July. I have been a diabetic since 1992 (22 yrss as a diabetic) and have a family history of diabetes through my mother who was a severe diabetic. I have always been treated with Diamicron and Metformin. Currently, I take the following drugs to control my diabetes: Diamicron- 3 x 80mg (3 times a day) and Metformin- 6 x 500mg (1g x 3 times a day). Along with the drugs here mentioned, I also take Neurobion Forte in the morning and Mecobalamin in the afternoon and night. Last year, a doctor friend prescribed chromium picolinate and it helped very much in keeping the FBS low range. I have now decided to start off with Optisulin capsules from Dr. Reddy s Lab . I would like to know what dosage I should take and the frequency. Please advise.

Hi, I am 56, average weight (57kg), 169cm tall. Lately I had several occasions where after drinking green tea or water I develop belching and severe dull pain in my left kidney area, sometimes lasting for 2 days. Often it is when I twist my torso or do anything just after drinking. It is not indigestion - it is usually on empty stomach. Could it be something with my kidneys or pancreas? I am taking pancreatin for digestive problems. I also have sliding hernia and a host of other problems, but this is a new one.
