I found out in Mid-May that I have diabetes. My first reaction was shock and anger. As the reality sunk in, I decided to solve my issues. I have been on Metformin 500 mg for six weeks with little or no side-effects. As a minister, I went to a church meeting recently that had a FEW SUGAR-FREE COOKIES THAT tasted like CARDBOARD! My mission, now, is to promote diabetes friendly snacks and food at church meetings. I use Diabetes Buddy on my iPhone and can record everything at my Cardiac Rehab exercise class except carbs. I have difficulty recording carbs since my wife cooks from scratch.
