I was dianoged with insulin resistent as a part of PCOS in May. I had rapid weight gain over the last 2 yrs. I fought military docs to do blood draws for diabetes (total of 4 glucose testing in 2 yrs), my glucose was always in range. But they never told me, my insulin was starting to creep up. I finally switch my insurance so i could see a civilian gyno in the states during a extended visit. She had me do the 8 hr fasting with the 2hr glucose liquid. normal range for insulin is 0.0 to 24.0 mine was 31.9 after the glucose liquid. She put me on Metformin 500mg 2x's a day
Im struggling to manage this, my husband is finishing a deployment so im having to eat on my own til he is home. Then our meals get as overhaul. My commissary has a limited selection on diabetic friendly foods, they just recently started selling dreamfields pasta. So i got online and order more stuff from their product line. I found diabetic pancake mix on amazon so we can continue having our saturday pancakes.
I had another fasting test 2 weeks ago but i have wait til close to thanksgiving to review the results with my doc since he is training til the middle of the month.
Im struggling with the carb craving those are so bad. Im always craving ramen noodles.
I walk atleast 1 hr 3 times a walk plus a couple group fitness classes, plus we dont currently have a car so i walk to the base for everything.
