emoticon JESS1010103 and emoticon to SparkPeople and the team...Nice to have you with us on the journey to a healthier lifestyle.

I can't agree with DDORN more. I'm not diabetic either however I've had much success with these steps and the medical profession when I need more info that they want to volunteer. Go for it! emoticon

You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face.

Mistakes are the portals of discovery.

Don't be afraid to give your best at what seemingly are small jobs. Every time you conquer one it makes you that much stronger. If you do the little jobs well, the big ones will tend to take care of themselves.

It is never too late to be what you might have been.

Wow! Did they drop the ball or WHAT?!?

Here's a good bet: the provider you're seeing on Monday is highly likely to have someone on call through the weekend. Be a pleasant pest and call your provider's office and see if they patch you through to their on-call practitioner.

Don't back down. Keep pressuring them for enough info to feel able to navigate your new diabetic waters without undue distress.

If you don't get anywhere with your provider's office, call the emergency room and ask for help. They can point you in the right direction or give you sufficient help themselves.

I am not diabetic, but if blood sugar spiking has been a problem, just take care to bulk up on non-starchy veggies.

Insist on diabetic education classes with a dietitian or nutritionist!

Good luck and let us know how you make out!

Just yesterday I found out I was a diabetic. I feel so lost and confused as to what I can eat. I went to my dr, because I noticed a huge weight loss. In ten weeks I had lost 35 lbs. My dr. called my house yesterday and told me to only have 1500 calories. He then later called and told me to go to the ER. While in the ER I was given 20 units of insulin and 3 bags of fluid. At 11:30pm I was released from the hospital. I went to my pharmacy to pick up some medicine. I found that I had two kinds of insulin to use. Here is my dilemma...they did not show me how to use the insulin and I do not have a testing machine. I sit here crying as I'm so confused. I follow up with my dr. on Monday. I have taken Metformin and still keeping up with my 1500 calorie but I'm really scared to eat. Any help would be great!
