Hi everyone! I am new to this site and so far I just love it! I am newly diagnosed with T2. I was diagnosed back at the end of August due to a hospital stay ( a really bad infection). All I can say is THANK GOD I was diagnosed! It's like a whole different world for me now! I embraced a lifestyle change from the first day. I eat a low carb, healthy diet, I exercise, and take my meds every morning (15 units of Lantus and 100mg of Januvia). As a result, my numbers have come down (my original A1C was 14 - I am having my blood work done tomorrow for my first follow up A1C), I am happier, healthier, and I've lost almost 22lbs! I am slowly taking it all in and learning as much as I can!
Now, my question is this…my husband and I will be traveling to Savannah GA next month. This will be my first airport trip since being diagnosed. Does anyone have any tips for me…or any ideas for what to expect when we go through security? I read somewhere that your life will be easier if you get a note from your doctor confirming that you have diabetes. Is this a good idea? Do they make a big deal out of it or is it generally a painless process?
Thank you so much for any insight!!
