Thank you for the welcome messages!I am currently not on any medications. I am trying to lose weight, get exercise, and watch the carbs. My doctor wants to test again in a few months and see how I am doing first. It's not easy to cut the carbs I know! 😀

"The real secret of success is enthusiasm..." thanks, Walter P. Chrysler. I believe it. That's what I want in my life--to give my imagination a chance, to live with energy and enthusiasm!
P.S. I looked up enthusiasm, and it says the root words mean God within... interesting...!

Ralph Waldo Emerson said 'Life belongs to the energetic.' But you don't have to be frenetic and hyper--some energy is quiet and steady, like a heartbeat... and that works too! LOL

Life comes one mome

Welcome to the team. I was diagnosed in June. We'll see what my A!C is this month on the 11th. I'm trying carb counting and exercise almost daily.

Playing my sax is how I connect with God. That gift is from God and I use it to Glorify His name. It's not bout me..it's all about HIM.

Welcome to the team. I have been able to reverse type 2 diabetes by going on a low-carb diet. This will also normalize cholesterol levels and blood pressure.
Take a look at this book and website by Dr. Richard Bernstein:

I found Spark when I was looking for a book to read about being diagnosed Diabetes type 2.
I found the Spark and I have stuck with it.

My Dr. put me on Metformin and using Spark was great for me. Eating right and exercising was my solution. I hope it works for you. I am 71 years young thanks to Spark.

welcome.

Not sure what med(s) you're on, but for the moment sounds like a good adjunct to nutritional and exercise plans to control your blood sugar.

Have you been to a diabetic educator yet? That is a good place to start.

Be sure you talk w/your pharmacist too if you don't know about your meds. They can often give you some insight into what the affects of the meds are and what to watch for as far as any side effects.

Definitely in this together!

Love is the root of all things good in life.

Hi Everyone! I've been a member of Sparkpeople for a few years now but I just got the news that Ive gone from pre-diabetic to a diabetic. I'm not on medication yet as I am going to try a lifestyle change of diet and exercise. My fasting bloodwork showed a 138 and a 7.2 A1C. I am 59 years old and have high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and high triglycerides. I'm glad to have found this team and appreciate in advance the support I know I will receive! We are in this together! Thank you! 😀
