Hi! I was diagnosed as early diabetic type 2 last week. Lightest dose of Metformin 500mg was prescribed, once a day. Diet and exercise prescribed. Need to lose 30 lbs. I can do that. No BS checking with a meter - however, the diagnosis rocked my world. Not sure why it got to me so badly. My fasting BS was 114 but the test where you drink sugar liquid and get blood drawn periodically (glucose tolerance test) was over 200 at the end. So that was the basis of the diagnosis.

Immediately eliminated sugar and high-glycemic index foods. Weight is dropping like a rock. I have heard that this can be beaten and I want to do that.

Thanks for listening.
