Recent diagnosis

Wednesday, December 23, 2015

Good morning everyone. I've been fighting this for awhile evidently. Yesterday they diagnosed me as being type 2 diabetic. I know what I have to do and have already started making changes. I switched my nutrition over to a diabetic diet. I've joined a diabetic group here on SP and I started the diabetic 30 day challenge. I'm on top of it. I've even watched better what I eat and I've stayed under the carb count which I understand is very important. This morning my sugar was 121 before eating. I have to get an AIC this morning as well to see what my average is for the past 3 or 6 months. I WILL NOT LET THIS GET ME DOWN AND IT WILL NOT CONTROL ME I WILL CONTROL IT!!!

Enough said!!!!!

Here is wishing all of you a very Merry Christmas and a healthy happy New Year.

    I have heard that even a 10% body weight loss can help reverse type 2 diabetes so that might be a good first goal. emoticon

    Be forewarned it's not always easy. I've been diabetic since 2001. Right now I'm battling hard to try and control mine. Good luck.

    I'm so sorry you have received this diagnosis. The good thing though is that it is Type 2 and that the fix is now up to you. Some of my diabetic friends would also say that the bad thing is also that the fix is up to you. You CAN do this though! You can keep your diabetes under control and in the process become healthier in many other ways.

    You sound determined and I believe you will WIN!! The medications they have now will really help but you will do the work of changing your dietary lifestyle and it will be hugely beneficial to you. What a good thing that you are already familiar with Spark People and its resources and that you have already been doing things to be more healthy! Now that you know what you have been fighting your focus will change but your determination to be healthy will not!

    Go Donna!! emoticon
