    You can get the runs when you first take it for a few days then side effects are extremely rare.

    Is that all diabetes is is popping a 6.5 on this test?
    Yeah bro diabetes seems more complicated. I always thought it was those fatties who catch it but even strong healthy fit people catch diabetes too.

    Prime example was Smokin Joe Frazier we all know he was one of the GOAT in incredible shape first one to beat Ali in his prime. Sugar Ray Robinson many consider the GOAT also had it. Even Jay Cutler has it and you'd think with all that NFL money he could of somehow got rid of it right?

    I think when we think of athletes and how hard they grind and keep up with their fitness on a pro athlete level and they still catch the diabetes its really scary bro.

    Even Halle Berry fine arse has type 1.

    So it seems like it might be hereditary and genetic especially when you see all these top fit athletes and celebs got it?

    Also get a monitor and see when and where u r high as the a1 is just an average it doesn't necessarily mean you're getting dangerous high levels, but testing regularly for a few weeks will give u an idea of what sets it off and at what times, everybody is different.

    also don't be afraid to take metformin if your DR says to, its one of the safest, cheapest drugs going around and research is showing it has all kinds of benefits from weight loss to reduced risk of heart disease and cancer.

    Green K bro thanks for the positivity!


    YEah Ive been eating more salad and veggies and ramping up my cardio. I bought a new bike just to go up the hills and trails and do about 6 miles a day up these big arse hills.

    I'm anti meds guy myself I never trust a doctor who prescribes me anything especially since lot of them get kickbacks from the shady pharmaceutical companies.

    Alcohol. Downsize your intake and your numbers will change for the better.
    Yeah normally I'm very moderate drinker like a beer with dinner like once a week if that but when Im on the road for work we are taking clients to happy hour and drinking up a storm to try to close their accounts so the alcohol is flowing like a mofo for work functions and I'm the guy who they send out to all of them.

    Also I took the blood test like first week of January which was stupid since we were partying it up all of Thanksgiving break, Xmas break and New Years.

    I should take the blood test like in April or May cause I do dry January sometimes I go dry all the way to March if possible.

    Alot of fruit juices have a ton of sugar too.
    Yeah I dont even like Coke or candies only time I eat them if its like free like I'm at a restaurant and they are like hey your drink comes with a free Coke or if someone brings a big bag of candy to work and we all bored as hell we all start tearing up the bag.

    But I would not go out of my way to get a coke or candy.

    I imagine most of us will be diabetic some day. Eating better is a great suggestion. I also knew a guy with diabetes that increased his exercise and that helped balanced his insulin levels.

    Try not to drink too much milk, maybe half that intake too, milk actually does effect your insulin levels unfavourably which can contribute towards type 2 diabetes.

    Thats all i can think off the top of my head.
    GreenK bro thanks!

    YEah I told my lady lets eat ton of salmon and fish. Ive been taking those omega fish oil vitamins daily. Damn I should start eating more peanuts, I barely eat eggs too cause I don't got time to make them in the morning. Is it any type of eggs? Like hardboiled? Scrambled?

    Good thing my lactose intolerant arse never drinks milk.

    Exercise helps a lot but you really HAVE TO get your diet in check. Even if you don't cook for yourself, understanding what goes in your food and how it's made helps tremendously. That knowledge gives you a lot more control and will lead you to making better dietary decisions.

    Definitely don't wait as it doesn't get easier. Best of luck and I hope you stay free of the diabetes.

    Also, watch out about the drugs. The meds that my grandfather took for his diabetes gave him high blood pressure, which is what ended up killing him.
    ^^^This. Most people have no idea how to eat properly. So much of what goes wrong is a direct result of what you ARE and what you ARE NOT putting into your body. People need to take the time to learn about nutrition... to learn ALL YOU CAN about it if you want to avoid health problems. When you are young you are very resilient but after 40 you begin to pay for all your mistakes.
