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
(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.
