I muddle through with a little support from doctors and have not had the ability to work with a dietitian so what I know about nutrition and managing diabetes (T2) I have learned on my own through forums such as this and just plain internet research. (taking 500 mg metformin 2x daily and sticking to a Mediterranean diet)
So, if I may, I'd like to take a moment to celebrate my 5.9 A1C result I got today. Down from 6.1 three months ago. Makes all the hardships we have to go through worthwhile and motivates me to stay on the straight and narrow.

Congraulations. That is awesome. I am at an advantage to all the newly dx like myself because my husband has been type 1 for 30+ yrs so i wasn't a stranger to D when i was diagnosed type 1 7 months ago. Keep up the awesome work. You should be proud. Glad you shared your victory!
