Topic: RE: Diabetic surgery info!!!!

Hello it would be really good to hear some advice and talk to people who understand how it feels. I had recently been diagnosed with RA. I was on hydroxychlorquine but been recommended to be on Methotrexate. I had pain in my feet everyday with the mornings being the worse. but when I am wearing orthofeet's shoes, at that time I dont have pain in my feet.

Topic: RE: type 2 considering bypass

Hi I'm considering RNY and saw your post from a few years ago. So how are you doing? Was it worth it? Have you kept the weight off and has it been a hard transition? Do you eat normal foods? Thanks for your help!

Topic: Anyone else on Bydureon???

I'm going on 2 months and losing 1 pound a week. I have not had any bad side effects. Anyone else on here using Bydureon for their Diabetes? It has also helped my A1C go down from 7.9 to 6.9. I do worry about the long term effects but currently considering WLS and hopefully won't need any diabetes medication anymore...wishful thinking??

Topic: Is diabetics controllable?

Hello guys,

I am bit confused about diabetics. Not sure about this one. My mom is suffering over 2 years. I am still confused that it's possible to control? Please let me know.

Topic: RE: How can I control my diabetics?

This is a good question. I am new and fairly confused about this topic I must say. The most important thing for me now is to know what is the normal blood sugar level. My friend uses this blood glucose levels chart. I am quite skeptical about these apps. Anyone with some other suggestion? Thanks a lot in advance.

Topic: Psych Eval - Diabetes

Good morning!

I'm preop, and had my Psych Eval last night, and it was so frustrating! He ended the meeting by saying, he wouldn't note it in the report, and wouldn't impede me from moving forward, but he had great concerns because my diabetes isn't well controlled. I work with my pcp, I take my medicines, it's just a work in progress.

Diabetes control is my main motivator for surgery, and I felt attacked without being heard. This is a 15 year decision in the making - I was approved 15 years ago and decided not to move forward. I now feel the maturity, ability to commit, and a worthiness of a longer life makes it the right time for me.

I just felt like my character was being questioned because my diabetes isn't perfect yet. Just venting, but glad it's off the list :)

Topic: ?? Healing ??

Do to being diabetic did anyone have trouble healing? All my incision healed in no time of all except my largest incision. My blood sugars are not higher than 140. Most of the time it's below 100. My largest incision was almost healed and then started draining. Has anyone else dealt with this? I had surgery this past Friday to have them clean up the infection and put a drain in. I read online that diabetics even with sugar under control can have slow healing. Just wondering how many have had this issue or something like that?

Topic: RE: Type Two and Complications

I'm 28 years old, been diagnosed diabetic for 6 years (2 years prior they just said I was pre diabetic but never did blood tests) I was a yoyo, eat healthy and lose weight to put whatever in my mouth and gain it all back and more. No one ever discussed weight loss surgery until my current doctor, the first day I met him he mentioned doing weight loss surgery. I of course was completely against it until my 3rd visit with him and he showed me he wasnt messing around by starting me on insulin. I was devastated. My a1c when diagnosed was 9.8, before surgery it was 6.4, I was on 14 units of lantus at night along with all my oral meds. I am now 7 days post op off all oral meds and only take sliding scale of novolg 4 times a day as needed (which hasnt been very often)

Topic: RE: What was your a1c before WLS?

My January A1C was 9.2 my August one was 5.5 I don't get my next A1****il November. I was never told anything about what my A1C had to at before surgery. I was taking Novolog 30 units 3 times a day with meals. I also was taken Novolin N 55 units in morning and 30 units at night. I came home taken 30 units of Novolog at meals again and Lantus 10 units a day. I currently am 10 days post-op and now am taken only Novolog 15 units in morning only.
