DILLONNAN did your Dr suggest you should go to Diabetes Education. Mine did and I found it most valuable because you get a lot of information that you can question.I was hospital trained but the educator told us about what to expect and how to manage Type 2 diabetes.
Have you been using the diabetic tracker for your Nutrition tracker it gives you a guideline in eating Calories, Carbohydrates , Fat and protein. It also suggest 2 snacks and if you need to you can track another.
Foot problems are quite common in Diabetics and you must learn to take care of your feet. If you have not been told about diabetic foot problems you can ask you Dr for more information. There is a lot of information in the Conditions center, under the COMMUNITY TAB on your spark page for you to read.
Exercise, just walking is an excellent way to help control blood sugar. For most people exercise brings your blood sugar down so think about exercising like a free medication for your
body. Just like limiting sugars helps too.
