    anyone know good diabetic body building supplements?

    hello all, I am into weight lifting and want to get bigger/stronger, but a problem I face is I suffer from type 2 diabetes. I want to get on some supplements outside of protein but every time i read the labels of other supplements they all say do not take if you have diabetes and are taking meds for it which I do. Does anyone know of popular body builder supplements for diabetics?

    Gymnema Sylvestre,cinnamon and R-ALA. Also, you might want to get your Testosterone levels checked because most people with diabetes have low test.

    Extra biotin, inositol, L-Carnitine, Omega 3's, etc.

    Most important is you want to protect your body proteins from diabetic damage called glycation. It causes your muscles/organs to stiffen as your age.


    L-Carnosine, Benfotiamine, and Pyridoxamine should be taken daily!

    anyone know good diabetic

    You are very vulnerable. Taking diabetic supplements can also hold the risk element involved. You had better to get prescription for the expert.

    I-load by professional supplements, it increases insulin sensitivity and pulls blood sugar(along with other nutrients) into muscle cells. it is all natural and all 4 ingredients have been used for hundreds of years for blood sugar control.

    I am diabetic type 1 I took any kind of supplement even PH

    The main thing is to watch your blood sugar and make the most out of control that you can
    avoid creatine as a diabetic kidneys are already used more than the normal

    He's probably not around, the thread is 3 yrs old. I "used to be T2", a keto diet was a life saver for me. For supps, plenty of protein powders are low-carb, Cinnamon, Fish Oil, Creatine, and maybe R-ALA (though I haven't tried that one). I don't know about increasing test.

    Very, very good point about testosterone.

    OP, what is your pharmacological management for type II diabetes?

    Hi guys
    for those who want to use supplements to raise test levels, u can use ZMA , its used before bed time, and animal test, or u can try naturally to do excercises that circulates the blood more in your lower body, thus improving ur test levels, and eating banana, but cautios with the sugar, oister, lettes , natural almonds, and avocado , also pay attanetion to the last because its fatty and raises blood sugar a lot, by the way squats and deadlifts and leg press are excellent too.
    also i forgot , any diabetic pro bodybuilder using insulin shots around , i have lots of questions to ask about cutting down weight without losing muscles ? and how to keep the blood sugar away from downs and ups when doing that??

    acctually you dont need to take any supplements.you can get that from natural food like eggs lean meat nut and vegies. you can try whey protien is okay also
    i use it but once a week only make sure when you have protien drink add 15 to 20 mins of cardio. salmon fish oil is good also and b complex. 4 monhts ago when i was diagnose with type 2 my a1c is 12.5 my dr give metformin after 2 weeks i trew it away.i read and watch you tube what could happened to a person if they diabetes and same time learned to riverse it. my dr was very surprise when shes saw me again my a1c test is 5.6 my advise to you is start from kitchen firts learned there i promise you will have the body that you want good luck my friend hope this help you to achive your goal

    Diabetic and muscle gaim

Two years later, been trying some of everything (protein) still fighting to gain size and strength. There were days that the the only food that sounded edible was EGGWHITES. And I ate them with whatever meat sounded good (and edible). Ive managed to get up to 218, my blood sugar is better but no where near what the doctor wants. When I was diagnosed, sugar was 435, still trying to find the right combo to get it down further--but I average about 230 right now. Ive gained some size back, but not anything worth discussion. If anyone has any suggestions-- Im all ears, I want to compete in 18-28 months-- just once to step on stage!!

    Arrow amino acids and weigh

    I am a 26 year old diabetic and consulted a couple of doctors and body supplement shops. I was referred to amino acids while working out and weigh proteins post workout or while at work. Thats the best bet I got and dont think would interfere with my diabetes. Ps haven't tried them yet. Do share if you have any bad experience

    P.S. whey protein is more insulinotropic than most carbohydrates
