Hi, I was diagnosed with T2D about a month ago. A little info about myself, I'm under 20 years ago, arguably young for t2d, and I am at a healthy weight, with a bmi of 19. My hba1c was at 9.6%! I was obviously shocked as my eating habits are quite normal, no different from my friends or family. Although I do admit to living a pretty sedentary lifestyle. Of course, I believe it to be somewhat hereditary, as my grandfathers side of the family is known for their diabetes. On to my questions, I've read a few articles that said that losing weight is a good way to lower the blood glucose levels, but I was wondering, how much more weight can I lose before being classified as underweight? And I am entering uni soon, so food and money will both be very limited, especially living in an Asian country, where rice and noodles make up a large part of our meals. In conclusion, I need help on the weight loss part and also a diet that's budget friendly and doesn't take me too much time to prepare! All help is deeply appreciated.
