I was diagnosed in November and with the help of a great nutritionist/diabetes educator, endocrinologist, and of course Spark, have been on a carb-controlled diet, stepped up my exercise, and brought everything under control. It was really scary at first, but I feel like I'm getting the hang of it. Reach out anytime!

Hi Kate. You are in good company here! I was diagnosed in 2001. With all the advances these days, it is easier to manage than even 30 yrs ago when my parents were diagnosed. We are here for you! You can add me as a SparkFriend.

Each day is a gift from God for us to use for reflecting His love to others in even the smallest way.

"Never give up or give in! Stay strong!"

Hi KATE welcome to the team.
Exercise is really great especially walking. If you are walking now keep it up.
Check out the Diabetic Nutrition Tracker. Take care

Welcome. Check the resources available in this community. And do stay connected. Are you logging and tracking food intake and your blood sugars? That helps a lot, because then you can connect what you eat and when you eat with how your blood sugar reacts.

Have you seen a diabetic educator yet? That is helpful.

Love is the root of all things good in life.

Hi everyone here

I just got diagnosed on Monday so the nurse called me in for another blood test i had that and now must have another appointment with a nurse end of the month is the earliest.

So far i'm trying to eat protein with every meal. I'm drinking plenty of water to keep full.
Choosing healthier options. Joined this team so thought if anyone has any tips to help me i would be grateful.

I also need to check out a couple of videos on youtube to see about insulin resistance when i get a chance.

Thankyou in advance for support here i will stay in touch.

Kate
