well, i don't think that someone that has diabetes should consider being a bodybuilder. starch and sugar levels will be dangerously high during bulking and this is no good. on a side note, a person with diabetes can be lean and muscular, but if we are talking big and bulky, i highly doubt it. Sure you can get big but if you want to be big and cut by bodybuilding standards i think you have to utilize a diet without limits. not everyone is cut out to be a bb, genes play a part as well.

I think the term bodybuilder has grown beyond "huge proffesional" and most people on bodybuilding forums are not competitors nor will they ever really be huge and bulky. May as well close up shop if being a bodybuilder means "diet without limits", "bulking", and being "huge". It's a label people use to define their primary goals but within that there are many degrees and parallel goals.

With type 2 diabetes there are many individuals differences and not all diabetics are completely unable to handle carbs nor or they all dependent on insulin or even glucose controlling meds.

To really answer such a question would require medical advice and the advice of a proffessional athletic trainer, detician, etc. would be good.

A diabetic will have many obstacles but there is more than one way to skin a cat, as they say. The idea that if a person can't spend a good portion of every year looking like a bloated whale they may as well not bother is a fairly silly notion, imo.

This question is also centered on a need for supplements. Whether or not one can tolerate supplements is NOT a make or break proposition. It's the least of a diabetic's worries.

My answer is YES, a diabetic can bodybuild. He or she should prioritize their general health first and then focus on being the best they can be, regardless if this fits somebody elses schema of what a bodybuidler is or isn't. Go for it. Be careful, and take care of yourself and your diet. Seek professional advice if you can.

If you act sanctimonious I will just list out your logical fallacies until you get pissed off and spew blasphemous remarks.

Agree with Eric. Nothing can set you back if you don't let it! You simply have to have a finer research comb while you looking for supplements. Nearly every supplement on the market, however, you can buy the bulk powders for and simply make yourself a flavor-less (or even add your own flavoring).

That being said, definitely pull your MD into any situation that you've got questions related to your Diabetes.

For sure. Can't stress enough that you've got to make your doc aware of everything.

Exercise, in any case, can help improve insulin sensitivity and as this is primarily due to the enhanced glucose uptake and insulin sensitivity of the working muscles resistance training should be a primary strategy to help with insulin resistance. And you'd need regular bouts as it is not a permanent fix. After you rest insulin resistance retruns to baseline after one and at most two days. So if you have diabetes move your muscles!

But there are going to be many cautions and kudos, as mentioned, so depending on how bad your blood glucose levels are and how difficult they are to control. These concerns may be slightly different depending on whether you have Type 1 or Type 2 (adult onset "aquired"). So CONSULT A PROFESSIONAL. And monitor those levels, before, after, and even during exercise to find patterns...make it so it's your religion to check the glucose levels with the guidance of your MD.

If your Type 2 exercise can make a big difference and in some cases, along with diet, can wean a diabetic off insulin entirely, assuming they needed in the first place.
