I was on glyxambi and switched to this.. i am a little nervous from reading some of these reviews. My questions are how often should i exercise? What kind of food should i eat?

Sidney; First this time you have to follow the doctors directions and the most importaint thing is to keep close eye on your diabetes for low or high levels and be aware that it does curb hunger which is what causes weight loss. But you must eat sensible just watching what you eat closer and the weight well go off at different rates for everyone. It is up to you how much you want to exercise start a few times a week and increase as you feel, And of course watching your blood surgar. You don't read to much into the side effects this is your diabetes doctor given you this and they have had very good luck with this one to help control the sugar and the side effect is almost most the people in the study lost weight. AT this point they put to much stuff to read and worry about if you have problems check with your doctor. AS far as nausea which is not that common wait until or if it happens and ask your doctor it says to make sure the doctor knows all medication you should or are taking so you just don't want to start something without your doctor knowing if you do have nausea have the doctor reccomend something.Use this just as directed..And eat what you want that is good for you and smaller portions and maybe more often. This has been proven to be very safe comparied to other things that have been out for diabetics. the side effects are not severe give it a try and watch really fattie foods and things that you know you should not be eating but always have juice,andother sweet things for sugar lows. SO any more questions ask the doctor.This has been very effective since it went on the market. And let the doctor know if you have any serious side effects. best of luck. Chuck1957
Ginger root tea helps with nausea. I'm going to tell you something that when you're 40 you're going to say either thank God I listened or wish I'd listened. Keep your blood sugar under tight control. Over 150 is not acceptable, ever. 200 or higher for 5 min starts to destroy your body cells. This is what leads to kidney failure and loosing legs. Don't eat sweets. Watch the number of carbs you have a day, keep carrots and celery cut up and handy in the frig for snacks. You can have the usual foods just watch your portions. If you eat pizza, don't eat a huge amount, but its fine to eat. Get protein and good fats to keep your blood sugar stable. When you lose weight you may not have much trouble keeping your blood sugar under control. I wish I could go with you to the grocery store. I just did that with my friend, lol... Google diabetic snacks, there is a list of them. It has the amount you can have and how many carbs in them. Oh and fruits have simple sugar, which make your blood sugar go up faster.
