One of the things for lowing sugars is to drink plenty of water!!! at least 8 glasses a day. I can always tell when I am low on water my sugars are up. And you can eat pasta, potatoes just measure and moderation.

Oh, girl, that was just what I needed to hear..I have a little age on me..and was just diagnosed last month..my number was higher then 10, it was 13. I have not been retested, yet. Still, my numbers fasting are high, but I have cut out all of the white stuff in my life. potatoes, rice, pasta, sugar, flour. Banished. I know I can beat this. I am trying to eat protien, and not much carbs. What did you eat and what about excercise...my doctor, affiliated with an HMO, is not the best, I am thinking..and I know it falls on me to get this done.
Thank you for posting this, today. I was feeling alittle hopeless. restored faith. I know you did it, and I can, too. wooooohooooooooooooooo.
thanks a million.

Congrats on being off medications. It is a wonderful feeling to do something so positive for your health!

Don't be offended by my frank analysis,

Think of it as personality dialysis

Hi Diane...I'm So Happy for You...
And I hate to be the bearer of not so good news.
Once a Diabetic, Always a Diabetic. And that seems to be ok for you because you are SO in control. No Meds...Awesome.
But do remember that you must keep up with your food intake control and testing your BSugar and Exercising.
You are doing so Great and in only 7 months. I'm So Proud of you...
It Just Goes to Show You, WE CAN DO THIS ! ! !

WHAT I WANTED TO HAPPEN MOST.....DID!!!!!

Spark friends.....

As of Feb 24,2010...

Just 7 short months ago...I was out of shape,in danger of losing my life as I knew it,and given the worse news from my doctor EVER!!!!

Here's a little of my story...

I HOPE.... IT GIVES YOU HOPE!!!!

At my doctor visit the other day my test results came back from my diabetic A1C done every 3 months...It tracks the sugar peaks HIGHS AND LOWS in the past 3 months and is mandatory when you are a diabetic, as I WAS THEN diagnosed...

I say I WAS.....

Because on my Doctor visit,A few day's ago,

He (( MY DOCTOR)) HAS NOW REMOVED THE DIABETES MEDICATION FROM ME....

My test was BELOW 5...
WHEN IN THE BEGINNING AT MY DIAGNOSE, MY TEST RESULT OF MY A1C WAS ABOVE 10. ((and above 10 is VERY BAD.))

I am NO LONGER DIABETIC and I no longer have to take medication !!!!

I am off of it!

I DID IT!!!! My hard work and dedication to myself really gave me a new life.....

I will never forget when I asked my Doctor if I did better,lose weight,eat right,do whatever it would take to make a change for the better,could things change enough to get off the diabetics medication he had just subscribed to me,


and he said NO....

YOU WILL ALWAYS BE ON THIS MEDICATION NO MATTER WHAT CHANGES YOU MAKE,
YOUR BLOOD SUGAR RESULTS ON A FAST ARE THROUGH THE ROOF,YOU CAN IMPROVE THINGS FOR YOUR HEALTH,BUT SORRY,YOU WILL ALWAYS BE ON MEDICATION FOR YOUR DIABETES....

YOUR NOW A DIABETIC!

I sat there and cried my eyes out..How did I let myself get here to this point.... I FELT LOST AND HOPELESS....

BUT...
Tho this was devastating news... There were changes needed and a new start,THAT ONLY I COULD DO FOR ME. NO ONE ELSE. I needed to do WHATEVER I HAD TO DO to get healthy for me....

NO MATTER WHAT....Medications for life or not....

I STILL NEEDED TO TAKE A HOLD OF MYSELF AND MAKE A CHANGE FOR THE BEST ME I COULD BE!
The diebetic med's were a nightmare they gave me horrific headaches and made me so sick to my stomach....I HATED the diabetic medication's I WAS NOW ON FOR WHAT** I THOUGHT** WOULD BE A PART OF ME FOR THE REST OF MY LIFE!!!!

But through my new life style change of eating better and doing what** I NEEDED TO DO FOR A HEALTHY AND LONGER LIFE....**
I now am free of the diabetes.....and the medications that came with it!!!!!



I had to share this GLORIOUS NEWS ...

I have a NEW LEASE ON LIFE...



AND NOW LIVING IT...Just as I hoped I could!Tho now I have to watch what I eat even harder....I will do as needed to be med free....for my life!



It's not who you are that holds you back, it's who you think you're not.
