Do you have some insulin? You need to give yourself a shot and keep doing it until your blood sugar comes down. It is VERY dangerous to not take your insulin. We have a local teenager who DIED because he forgot to take his insulin on a weekend trip. You need to either take some isulin or go to the emergency room...or both.

Helpy,

I hope that you have started taking your insulin again. If you are concerned about weight gain, then you can try exercising and eating less carbs. But taking your insulin will not solve the problem. Eventually all that sugar will get processed anyway, but in the meantime you will feel horrible.

Carbs aren't the problem. Meat, dairy and heavily processed foods are. Dump the animal products, the msg and all that other junk in your food and eat a whole foods plant based diet.. Exercise daily.

She's a diabetic and needs insulin. Not eating processed food won't cure diabetes, my friend. I know you meant well, but she needs to take insulin. No insulin = high blood sugar = death.

Actually, not eating processed foods, and all animal related foods will help the problem a lot. I did not say to dump the insulin, Duh. What they need to do is keep taking the medicine while changing the eating. Tell their doctor what they are doing, and like most doctors that have only 3 hours or less of nutritional training, they won't have a clue anyway. For now on I will state the total way to go about getting off meds instead just assuming everyone knows to check with their doctor first. Even though most will balk at changing it.
There is a very good book out called "Dr.Neal Barnards program for reversing diabetes." The scientifically proven sytem for reversing diabetes without drugs.
I bought that book when I was told by a doctor that I was borderline for type 2 diabetes. I bought the book, followed it, and no longer have symptoms and never did take meds for it. And never will.

You stated you stopped taking your insulin, so obviously you need to start taking it again. i don't mean to be unkind, but the answer is obvious. As far as weight gain, eat fewe3r carbs, fewer calories, exercise more, and you'll need less insulin and lose weight. Try an insulin pump so you won't go low as often and can turn down the amount of insulin you take and exercise instead. If you're on shots, when you exercise, you'll be forced to eat sugar, so the exercise won't help you lose weight. with a pump, you can lower your basal rate of insulin and use exercise instead of insulin. Insulin will make you gain weight. Learn how to use less, but don't quit taking it EVER. That will kill you!
