Hello. I am new diagnosed diabetic. I was diagnosed in July 2012. I went through a rough stage at onset. I am quite thankful today because my BG was over 2000. God has given me an opportunity to share my story and how God healed my body.
I was rushed to hospital was incoherent and my body experienced deaths doors; but thanks be unto God who gave me a second chance. Today I have NO physical ailments. I check my BG 5 times a day and my level now range from 60 - 120. At times I do experience low BG when I do exercise. This is all new to me. Any suggestions on keeping BG under control.

I was able to bring my A1c of 10.7 to 5.7 using magnesium(slo-mag),chromium picolinate,B-12, benfotiamine,turmeric,cinnamon…all come in capsule or tablets at health food store or on-line.
You should talk to your doctor before starting these.
Good luck to all:

Welcome to DC! Sounds like you're on your way to learning how to take care of yourself! This is a great place to be, great ideas and a plus, the people here are awesome! I am on a low carb diet, lots of veggies, protein, small portions of fruit (some fruits are a no-no for me). I've eliminated anything starchy from diet such as pasta, rice, white flour breads, potatoes, etc. I can getvaway with natures own bread whole wheat, only 10 carb grams per slice. Keep reading and good luck!

Wow! This is great:) Snack after 2 hrs of a meal. I keep natural peanuts with me where ever i go. Snack on Granola or sliced up veggies. Lots of working out and watch the pasta will spike it quick…trust. Good luck my friend.

Hey, my friend,

I am glad that you are here. Support from other people is, in my mind, an important aspect of diabetic self-care. Sounds like you have a great attitude. And you came to the right place for advice -- from people who are walking this journey alongside you.

Thanks everyone. I am on insulin. Since being released from hospital I have decreased my insulin (lantus) by 50 units. Diet and exercise has been my best friend. :)

Welcome to DC. I do hope you enjoy your visits here with everyone. You have done very well with your BS in a short period of time. I couldn't imagine a BS over 2000.. Didn't even know someone could get that high. There are a lot of wonderful people on here who can and will give you wonderful helpful advice. I am fairly new here at DC myself. Before working out you probably should check your BS and also have a snack and check your BS afterwards. That is just my bit of knowledge. I am sure you will hear from others offering much better advice than I gave you. Good Luck, and have a wonderfull day !!
