Does Take Shape For Life® have weight-loss programs for people with diabetes?
Yes! Take Shape For Life® has special programs for people with type 2 diabetes to help you understand how you can safely and effectively lose weight and better control your blood sugar levels using Take Shape For Life® with healthcare supervision. Consult your healthcare provider prior to starting any weight-loss program, including Take Shape For Life®. We suggest you monitor your blood sugar readings once or twice a day as well as stay in close contact with your healthcare provider for instructions on making changes in your medications. Refer to the Diabetes Guide (PDF) for complete details.
What if I am taking insulin injections daily to control diabetes?
Take Shape For Life® strongly recommends that you consult with your physician about your current insulin dosage prior to beginning the program. Since a low-calorie, healthy diet (such as Take Shape For Life®) has the potential to normalize your blood sugar, many physicians either reduce the amount of insulin at the start of the 5 & 1 Plan or recommend following a higher calorie level than the Optimal Weight 5 & 1 Plan. Please refer to the Diabetes Guide (PDF) for more information. We also recommend that you monitor your blood sugar levels and continue consulting with your physician about your insulin requirements.
Should I continue my oral diabetes medication?
Take Shape For Life® strongly recommends that you consult with your healthcare provider and/or endocrinologist regarding any medication adjustments. We suggest that you check your blood sugar at least two to three times daily, especially at the beginning of your Take Shape For Life® Program. If your blood sugar levels fall below the range specified by your healthcare provider, you should seek the advice of your healthcare provider. TheTake Shape For Life® Program probably provides a lower intake of calories and carbohydrates than your current diet.
