SANDYSUE1965 don't give up and do not give in. There is life with diabetes. Have you joined any groups? There is an awesome group called managing diabetes.Very supportive and informative. I have been diabetic for 12 years with out complications. I felt the same way about medications period. But whatever it takes to get control of diabetes back that will I DO. Just saw the dr today and he told I could omit one of my meds if that day(s) I ate low carb. My sugars kept dropping since I have stepped it up on my exercise. stay ahead of it and you will be fine. my a1C is 6.4 it is down from 6.6 3 months ago. Books are good but if you need to take further action then do it for your health sake.
