    Does anyone know how diet drinks may affect weight loss? Has anyone here struggled to lose weight/lower insulin levels because of diet drink consumption?? Xxx

    hi everyone . I had to do a fasted insulin blood test. My result was below normal. I dont understand what this means? Does it mean I am sensitive to carbs? Or the result is just because I have low blood pressure sometimes? I also got a few other things tested that all came out normal. But if...

    I wasn't really able to find information on the most effective ways to do this anywhere else, so I'm posting it here. For those of you with diabulimia (the restriction of insulin in order to lose weight), what have you found that works the best? And how long were you able to go without...

    Has anyone gotten diagnosed with prediabetes or diabetes after they've been at a low BMI? I've been trying to look into if developing diabetes is a potential side effect from anorexia, but I've not been able to find any articles that discuss diabetes as a result of an eating disorder, only an...

    Hey everyone! I have T1 diabetes and was wondering if anyone else on here does too. I've heard that a lot of diabetics with EDs don't take insulin (which basically works by moving glucose to fat cells, thus making you gain weight) in order to lose weight. I don't do this, although I do sometimes...

    Hey! So, I've been diagnosed with Polycystic Ovaries Syndrome since i was in high school, and was on medication for insulin resistance (caused by PCOS) at the time. Then when i reached my lowest weight, i'd been taken off the medication since my sugar + insulin levels were too low. Then I...

    I was told that tonight my family is going out for a meal (It's my brother's late birthday celebration) so they're expecting me to eat pizza with them. I injected the basal dose of Levemir about an hour ago (14 units, not the full amount), but I won't have to inject tonight as they won't check...
  12. Fasting and Cleansing
    I came across a really good reference for those of you that fast. It's FASTING 101, but the title is the HISTORY OF FASTING. It's a short 10 pages or so and well worth reading if you haven't read about the various aspects of fasting before. It cleared up many misconceptions for me. I've been...

Also any other ways to suppress appetite which...

    Like many people in early adulthood, I waitress and rely on the money I make taking tables 45+ hours every week to pay my rent and bills. I've always worked in the restaurant business, it's the only job experience I have, and I have no intention of leaving my job, but lately calorie restricting...

    I am obsessed with teas. I really like flavors that use peppermint and/or licorice because they taste so sweet, but now I'm wondering if the extreme sweetness of these herbs can cause the paradox blood sugar spike like stevia and artificial sweeteners can? I don't know if any of the blood sugar...
