Hi all !! about 3 years ago my doctor told me I have type 2 diabetes. It runs in my family and I am over weight so I was not surprised at all. At the time I had health insurance so was making frequent trips to doctor where he would test my sugar and he put me on Metformin. Two years ago I was laid off and lost my health insurance. I am still unemployed and stopped taking Metformin 2 years ago. I no longer had a prescription and could not afford lab and doctor visit. I asked my doctor about a tester and he said it was necessary at the moment…not sure what that is about. Anyway…I signed up for this site hoping I qualify for a tester. Still not able to afford medication soooo are there foods that work with my body to help lower blood sugar as well as my blood pressure issues? I am not a sweets kind of girl so that is not an issue but I am addicted to Coca-cola =( I have tried to stop drinking it but it is way tough. City water in Kansas City taste so nasty and I can not afford bottled water. If anyone has food suggestions for me please let me know. I am moving over to a vegan life. I am finding it is not as expensive as I thought it was so hoping that will help. I appreciate any suggestions. Even though I found out about this 3 years ago I really feel like I am brand new to the disease. I do not see an end to my unemployment so I need to get a control on it right away. I have tried for state insurance and was denied =( Thank you soooo much!!!!
