Diabetes and HRT

I am a 45 year old diabetic on oral medications and Byetta. Is there anyone out there who went thru surgical menopause and is diabetic? Do you take HRT and if so, what are you taking? How did all of this affect your sugar control?

Thanks!

Re: Diabetes and HRT

Let me know if you find out anything interesting. I know my diabetes dr did not want me on oral contraceptives because it added estrogen to my body which increases your blood sugar. But if you are taking out your ovaries and not making estrogen on your own, then the hrt is just replacing your estrogen, not adding to it. I did read somewhere that the estrogen you take when taking hrt is natural estrogen as versus syntehic estrogen in the birth control pill and this is better for you. Not sure what all this means but I am going to ask my ob this week and will let you know what I find out.

Re: Diabetes and HRT

My MIL developed diabetes when she went thru natural menopause. She was quite the mess, than she moved here and she started using some of my compounded hormone creams. Her condition improved alot. She no longer uses anything, her diabetes is under control.
