I was just diagnosed with diabetes. I am surmising it is type 2 since my hemoglobin A1c was 7.4. I've been told by my doctor to stop eating sugar and sent a little information that was very confusing. I've spoken with a couple of friends who have been diagnosed with diabetes a while ago and they both have different ways of dealing with it.
I believe I've become a little depressed with the news. The first night I OD'd on sugar (I guess this is a part of denial). I've had so many health issues that I've dealt with in the passed 7 years that this was the virtual needles that broke the camel's back.
How do I shop? How do I eat? I don't even know how to test my blood sugar or if I have to. Is there anyone that can guide me where to find out this information?
God Bless you All for your help!
