I need help. I can't lose any weight, in fact I've gained 20+ pounds since March. I have type 2 diabetes, chronic kidney disease stage 3, HTN, and foot neuropathy. I am obese. I've tried cutting back quantities, calories, all salty products, but my BS is still going up. I've had to adjust my insulin intake to double (20 units) in order to bring it down. I usually eat 1200 calories daily, exceptions when we go out on special occasions. I'm disabled with back/hip replacements, so exercise is hard.
You certainly are dealing with a lot of issues. My advice is to consider the following: meet with a dietitian who has experience with diabetes and kidney disease for guidance on meal planning and weight loss. You might also look into diabetes or weight management programs in your community and find out if they are qualified to help people with kidney disease. I’d also suggest talking with your physician about getting a referral to a physical therapist or an exercise physiologist to learn how to safely exercise with your back problems and hip replacements. There should be exercises that you can do, and being active is crucial for reaching and staying at a healthy weight.
