Ok I was dx with type 2 in 2003, never have I accepted this and never really tried to keep it in control, I am on Lantus at night and now humalog befor meals. I had sort of a wake up call the other night, I accidentally took 42 Units of humalog at bedtime instead of my lantus, it was a mistake I was talking and not paying attention to what I was doing. So had to call 911 and spent the night in the hospital because they were worried I would bottom out. After several Dr.'s came in throughout the night and next day one of them said somethings about how high my sugar was and that is probably what saved me from bottoming out. It just hit home the things she was saying about how high I was running and did I want to lose my eyesight and my kidneys and other organs, did I want to live to take care of my kids. Yes I do. I finally woke up and have accepted my type 2 diabetes and realize I must change eating habits and test everyday as instructed. I have done well for 3 days since I came home from hospital. Now my question is how many carbs for the day and also how do you put fruit in your diet, right now I am only eating the veggies and am leaving out the fruit. But I know they say you are supposed to eat fruits also. Why am I scared of fruit all of a sudden. Help please, you who are experienced with this give me some advice please, thank you in advance.
