to the team! You knocked on a good door and we all want you to have a healthy heart and try & help. As Tom says sitting and getting up and down is exercise in itself in the beginning and lots can be achieved in a chair exercise. There's lots of information on this site that I hope you take advantage of and I'm sure many of our chefs etc. can lend a helping hand in diet planning. For many years I cared for a diabetic and repeatedly heard the same thing from the "pros". It's all about what you put into your body. Both food and/or exercise time. And that is true.... As always though, check with your doctors before moving forward with anything. I hope all goes well for you. Ginny

Welcome! There are a lot of diabetic resources here and you can use the nutrition tracker to help track your carbs. Were you put on the Diabetic Nutrition Plan for tracking what you eat? There are also several seated exercise videos. Even if you can only do the right side for now, you might enjoy them. Good luck.
