I was borederline diabetic for a long time, and I think i may have crossed over the line now thanks to a few telltale symptoms. Can anyone recommend a good and very knowledgeable diabetes expert that they've used here in pattaya?

One of the decent hospitals should give you an accurate test.


Diet diet, watch what you eat!!!

just go to a hospital and pay for a check. They should give you a Glucose Tolerence Test and a Glysated hemoglobin test - the first tests your response to glucose and the second test gives an average blood sugar value over the last 120days by measuring the amount of glysated hemoglobin in your blood using young and old red bloods cells(red blood cells live for approx 120days)


being over weight is one of the major factors in type 2 DB, as body fat appears to inhibit the effectiveness of insulin.


other than extreme thirst and frequent urinating (sometimes lose of energy), type2 diabetes short term symptoms are rare.

Speaking as a Type Two diabetic, I would suggest you have a blood test.


This will, as has been previously said, determine your average blood sugar over app the last 3 months.


Don't have any experience of treatment in Patts, but I dare say, someone on th board will know!

As stated by other BM's see a doctor any of the local hospitals should be able to help.


Diabetes is as I'm sure you are well aware a very serious condition not to be taken lightly.


There is a lot of not only information but also misinformation on the web so be careful a lot of the websites are just out to make money always take the advice of your doctor or specialist first.


I do know there is a Diabetes Clinic with at Pattaya Bangkok Hospital if that helps.


Diabetes is becoming all too common these days a lot of it is down to our lifestyle and general environment.


Although I am not advocating this as a substitute for treatment to control diabetes Pattaya Personal Training in his post above makes a very valid point diet and exercise can have a marked effect on diabetes.


This diet Dash Diet (Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension) is one that was primarily designed to lower blood pressure something else you have to watch out for with diabetes basically it is a healthy diet that everyone can use. It also helps to lower cholesterol, help to control diabetes and cause weight loss in people who are overweight.


Here is another site you may find useful with reliable information http://www.diabetes.org/

Thanks for the help everybody, will try ut the BKK patts diabetes clinic and report back.


other than extreme thirst and frequent urinating (sometimes lose of energy), type2 diabetes short term symptoms are rare.


my "crossing over" for lack of a better word, came from stress. Too much stuff to deal with from back home, lots of work things to do, and I was being a bad boy and eating convenient but low quality food at the same time (span of say 4 or 5 days). Then in rapid succession, I got the thirst and urinating, lack of energy, and then gastroparesis (where your digestive system just stops), which is a common sign of DB. Then I got painful headaches and sore eyes - again somewhat common in DB. Now i have little red blotches all on my calves and forearms, and cramping in my lower leg. And once again, apparently it's a common side effect of DB. So by circumstantial evidence I'm making an educated guess. Those of you who got DB later in life, (ie not as a kid), what kind of medicine do you take? Does it differe, or is it always insulin shots? in other words, are there pills, supplememnts, any other treatment methods?

as mentioned above, metformin is the most common drug. Has very few side effects (even tho one very rare side effect called latic acidosis is potentially fatal).


Diet and weight loss are the biggest benefits - may mean you can defer takes medicine for years if your careful.


One bonus drinking is ok with these drugs.

Mate you need to buy a blood glucose monitor....


I use accu chek Performa...


Check you blood in the morning after not eating for 12 hours it should be low about 4.5 mmol/L


Have something very sugary like a 600ml of coke with breakfast and check you blood every 30 mins after that if you go above 13mmol/L then you have diabetes, If you dont get down to below 8 in 2 hours you are in trouble. Start taking Diaformin XR(extented release) a 1000mg a night. It helps the insulin get the sugar into your cells. Fat around your cells reduces the insulin's ability of getting sugar into the cells so if your fat loose weight. If you drink sugary drinks at all stop doing it this includes orange juice. If this doesn't help the you can increase the amount of diaformin or diabex to 3000mg but take your time getting there. 1000 at night and 500 in the morning.


There are other drugs like diamicron that will help your pancreas produce more insulin but unless you can get the sugar into your cells then no amount of insulin will help you. Often used before going on insulin. This drug also making your pancreas work harder and will only make it stop working altogether quicker. it can also cause low blood sugar.


Remember that a high blood sugar will cause you die long term killing all your organs and starving blood flow to cells killing them. low blood sugar will kill on the spot with a coma.


If you have high blood sugar your body will get rid of it some way. The diabetic way will be ketones in your urine another way to tell if you are diabetic


You should also look at your blood pressure and amount of salt you eat. Its not reversible but is manageable.

    • For those that don't know, I did Friday meetings before many years ago,  I feel like we are missing a regular meeting for members,  I am aware guys meet at PA affiliated bars. But I want to start meeting people again, I'm inviting the guys following my YouTube also.

      The meetings is a chance to get to meet each other,  I plan to be at every meeting, I also have Dean from Dive bar that has offered to help out with a crawl after.
      The meetings will be  Monday  6 pm - 8 pm each week.  (The improvised bar crawl will commence at 8 p.m.  Dean will make his own plans for that.)

      Due to low numbers of people in town, I will start the meetings in our bars to help our girls and managers, please check back often incase things are changed.  I will be sharing the love around town later, but Soi 6 is first on my list (including bars that are friendly competition)   
      If bar owners want us to have a meeting at their bar,  they need to have a minimum of 10 girls.  I'm not dragging people to empty bars for favours.
      Please help us invite other members, it takes a while to get momentum.
      Monday 6 pm - 8pm  (then bar crawl after)
      21st March - Playpen Soi 6
      28th March - Night wish bar Soi 6
      4th April - Toy Box bar Soi 6
