Diabetes and training
Hi Doc

i was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes about a year and a half ago but the funny thing is that this was during a period when I was at my healthiest i use to go to gym no less than 4 times a week and I wtched what I ate. I then discovered in gym that I had excessive thirst and decide to consult a doctor where i got a reading of 18.4.

I since stopped going to gym. my question to you is will i be able to take part in heavy weight lifting again as I would like to return to gym. Please advise me on the do''s and don''ts as to weight lifting and bodybuilding for diabetics.( i just turned 41 a week ago)

I would really appreciate your response
