Thanks for you reply, Hiker. I changed doctors due to insurance. The doc I'm assigned to is fairly new. Blood work was part of becoming a new patient. So, I haven't seen an endo, and I have a doc who is not experienced. Thank God for SP and my own common sense!

With BS & A1C numbers like that, I don't understand why your doctor wants you on meds unless your BS numbers are spiking way up or way down at times. Yes, heredity/genetocs has a large role to play.

Hi,
I am new to diabetes as of late March. My numbers were fairly low...I am not on meds, doc wanted to put me on something, but I said no, I would work on diet and exercise. Well, now it is 4 months later...Tuesday I will get results of new blood work. March was 102 fasting BS, and A1c was 6.7. I followed the foods pretty well, but only lost a few lbs. I am not happy with myself about the exercising, fell fall short. So, now, before I go back to doc, I have decided I will still not accept meds. If my numbers are not better, I will work harder...doc won't be happy, but it's my body, and many meds nauseate me, so, I say not yet, and hopefully not ever.
But, my main question is, is it harder to control it if diabetes is in your family? My dad had it, as well as his mom. So, I wonder if I was pre-disposed to the disease, and how that might affect my ability to control it on my own. If anyone has any input, I would appreciate it.
Thanks,
Deb
