I've been type 2 for more than 10 years and I am confused on a few things. 1. How does protein get into your urine? 2. Using cinnamon in your diet: does it really lower cholesterol? 3. I exercise daily and try to eat right. What is the best way to prevent/reverse the effects of diabetes? I would like to lose at least 50 lbs. My weight is currently around 230 lbs. Any suggestions?
I’d like to try seeing a naturalist or a holistic doctor because of the side effects of medicines I’ve been on; what do you think of my idea? My doctor wants to put me on insulin instead, and I don't want to take it because all my family members who were on insulin had side effects and now are dead. My morning blood sugar is sometimes high (as high as 217) from something I ate the night before; other times it's 157. My doctor has me on 5 mg of Onglyza.
