I also have hbp, I'm taking two medications to control it. I have been a diabetic for almost seven months now. I take Metformin 500mg three times a day. I'm still learning and taking it day by day. One of the best books I bought to help me understand the disease is Diabeties for Dummies, its a very good book. I also follow the low carb lifestyle which has help me to control this disease. I do not eat anything white like white flour, sugar, rice, pasta, bread and potatoes. If you have any questions please ask and I'll try my best to answer them.
Hi Everyone... my name is Adrienne and I am 27yrs old with two beautiful kids... I was actually just diagnosed with type 2 diabetes and high blood pressure a few days ago... its not a major surprise as I had gestational diabetes with my first pregnancy and also diabetes runs through my family quite prevelantly but it was still upsetting to find out that I had this disease... for the most part I have been doing ok but as I am sure all of you know, its hard on you physically and emotionally... well, I just wanted to say hi to everybody and hope you are all well... keep smiling and take care... Adrienne
