I found a doctor in Spooner, Wisconsin that I am going to call on Monday after work to see if I can get into. They deal with diabetes, well that is what their page said.. Also found some support groups to go to in Superior and Duluth for diabetes.. I couldn't find who suggested those, however, I wanted to say thank you! They are times that I can attend, so very happy! I am calling on them Monday as well to register and they are free, that makes it all the more cool! I am so very thankful that I found this group.. Everyone that has helped me, thank you so very much from all my heart.. I felt so lost and alone until I came here.

I know just how you feel. When I was diagnosed, I didn't have a doctor. I found this site and everyone helped me so much. Because of advice here I was able to get my A1c down in the 6% range even without the doctors and the meds.

I am glad you found a doctor who is able to help. That will be a great addition to your team.

Thank you all for the encouragement! I truly does mean the world to me. I feel so much better about the diabetes now and my self.. I have lost 5 lbs ( I know it's not a lot, however, for me it's a start) and my numbers and back down to the low 120s and teens.. I feel great about life again. I can honestly say that this group has helped me so much. Thanks again!!

I can not say enough about support groups, I know I always learn more from people who actually live with a problem and have to deal with everyday problems far more than I ever did in classrooms or books.
Best of luck to you!
