Hi and welcome to the team.
I am sorry to hear of your impending need for dialysis but Kathy and Mary are wonderful examples showing that you can recover at least some function. Listen to them.
I certainly hope you can start getting things under control. Do you have a meter and do you test???? This is really the only way to tell how well you have things under control regardless of what the doctor said.....
Wishing you all the best.

welcome to the team as kathy said she has sent you and invite to the eard team there are lots of good things going on there kathy and i are going through the diabetes and the chronic kidney disease..i follow the national kidney diet (i call it the no no diet because there is hardly anything there that is not a nono) and as a result my kidneys stabilized and i am considered normal now..however i remain mostly on that diet because it is a chronnic condition and i'm not doing dialysis never don't want it and i'm just not my a1c for diabetes remains in the mid fives so i know that is under control..no it's not what i am used to and then to top it all off i had a seizure (probably from some lack of vitamin or mineral in my diet lol) and it was the onset of autonomic neuropathy so now i just wait..my cousin has all the directions in writing and she will make the decisions for me
but for now i am still diabetic and still pushing along so welcome to the team for sure

Welcome! sorry to hear you're facing dialysis.
I've sent you an invitation to another team, but I do want to welcome you here too--Diabetes really is no joke, and I'm glad you're here with us, because we all can use support and understanding from others who are going through the same issues...
"The real secret of success is enthusiasm..." Walter P. Chrysler said it, I believe it. That's what I want in my life--to give my imagination a chance, to live with energy and enthusiasm!
Ralph Waldo Emerson said 'Life belongs to the energetic.' But you don't have to be frenetic and hyper--some energy is quiet and steady, like a heartbeat... and that works too! LOL

I am a 68 yo retired Air Force Msgt, diagnosed with type II about 1994. Every doctor I had thought I had BG under control. I think it's questionable. I have always had BG spikeing above 200. I showed early signs of kidney disease about the time the military health system kicked me out and forced me to go to a doc in the civilian, disorganized world. I saw my first nephrologist in Jan 2012. By that time, I was already CKD stage III. All the nephrologist did was put me on diurhetics, adding Lasix to the HCTZ I was already taking for CHF, and taking me off of metformin. He also told me to go on a low potassium diet. I am now stage four CKD (GFR=25). Not looking forward to dialysis. I have informed my family and friends that I will decide every step of the way whether I will participate in dialysis, what type and when to quit and die. My family are all on board with that.
