Hi everyone, I was just diagnosed as being Type 2 Diabetic on May 31st. My sugar was 328, A1C 12.2, cholesterol 252, triglycerides are 411 plus other things being out of whack. Guess those numbers weren't good. Yes I'm overweight too as you probably know. Feel really bad and now my eyes are all blurry and I can't focus well, what's that all about?? Dr. put me on 500 mg Metformin 2x day..made me sick, sick, sick,…but I've stuck it out and now it's doing pretty good, I don't get sick as much. Guess my body is adjusting. My blood sugar is just now going down to high 100's like 188 or so. Thought I would feel better as it goes down, but I don't. I guess like everyone I went into shock and still am, I don't know what to do, what to eat. I've read everything online I can find and I just get more confused. I think I'm overthinking things and making it harder. I go see a dietitian on June 22nd, so hope that will help. I'm under lots of stress because my dad has Alzheimers which is fastly progressing and I'm the only one to take care of him, I work FT so I'm constantly running home to check on him & back to work, when I am home it's so much stress to see him like this. Not complaining because I'd do anything to help him. I know stress isn't good for us either. You know ask me about a diet to lose weight & I've done them all and still gained 50 lbs., but this I don't understand. I'm trying to eat healthy since I found out, I just don't know what to put together and there's the carbs,, sugar, low fat, don't eat low fat things, read the labels..what am I suppose to look for - fat, carbs, sugar IDK…I'm lost! Anyone else got advice or having same problems. I'm so low all I want to do is cry. I just need some help.
