I use a dosett which I fill once a week as a reminder to take my meds. It shows my whether I took them or not and makes it easier to take them as I do not have to count out all the different once each time. I also take multi-vitamins, calcium/magnesium, and vitamin E.

Even living with diabetes takes practice in making healthy choices every day. I have succeeded in living with diabetes without medications (at one point I was taking 3 diabetes meds), and the only way I can stay off meds is to practice every day: 94 ounces of water, eating 6 small meals, and at
least 30 minutes of cardio (working my way up from walking to jogging), strength training 3-4 times a week, portion control, surrounding myself with positive people, tracking food, & reading Spark People articles & member blogs. I will always be a diabetic even without meds, so I must practice.
Total Gym...finally an exercise program I don't dread!
I purchased a Total Gym from the informercial about 3 months age...I hate walking, I hate doing videos...pretty much hate all exercise, until the TG. Seriously folks, yes its expensive, and it does take up quite a bit of space (even though they tell you it stores easily) . I have been doing the work outs every other day and its true...muscle burns fat all day...I am thrilled!
