i'm a chocoholic.. even after meeting my long lost sister who has a dead pancreas and has to shoot up everytime she eats.. i kept on eating sugar.. For about 2 yrs. i felt sick all the time, then my toes went numb. I need to walk .. thats the hard part for me. I take metformin.. it's only been 3 weeks since being diagnosed.. i missed 2 nights and got sick.. so please take it regularly. i get gas and diareah from truvia,, but thats okay.. it's sweet! hahaha let me know if you find anything better. well good luck
I walked into my doctor's office yesterday as a new patient after being hospitalized after a car accident and needing someone I could follow up with. At the hospital they mentioned my blood sugar was 200, so my doctor took a quick test with a glucometer and I registered 313. I admitted to having 2 buckeye balls and an english muffin with cheese within an hour before, but it was still high. She had me get a test right there saying if the result was 6.5 or above I was to get a glucometer Monday and test myself twice a day. One fasting in the morning, and once late in the day after eating. I also went for a complete work up today. she gave me all the tools "just in case" so we weren't wasting time. I already set up an appointment with a Nutritionist, and immediately started cutting back. Pasta and bagels will be my biggest hurdles. I did 45 minutes of laps at the best speed I could. I'm currently at my highest weight, and realize I did this to myself by not believing it could happen to me. Hopefully, I will still get the month on metformin my doctor originally gave me to get this under control. I dissected the ADA website and found a lot of good recipes, and I love that learning portion control can help while not making it seem like I can't have any yummy stuff ever. I do get headaches from the lack of white stuff, but I'm sure I'll adjust. I'm only 32, and I really hope I can manage to beat diabetes. Yes. Beat it.
Who was the first person to say, "See that chicken over there ... I''m gonna eat the first thing that comes out if its butt"?
