Hi everyone I am new here last Thursday I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes and put on metformin .Ok I knew this could happen due to my family history but yes it is still a big shock. New diet, exercise, and more pills. I am disabled due to massive back problems can stand and walk for a short amount of time.
My doctor is very concerned about this because my readings are in the 280 range which in very bad as he stated when explaining all the tests done on that day. I still have to meet with a dietitian which diet really doesn't bother me. But should I measure out portions and do I count carbs, sugars, fats etc. I want to know if there is a good journal out there to keep all my records in i.e. weight, blood pressure, pulse rate, and of course sugar levels, exercise and all thing pertaining to my health.
There are so many books out there with everyone's story. I need to know facts this is me and my body which has me worried and a bit stressed out right now I also need for my husband to understand this as well so he is going to the dietitian because he needs to know.
Are there any good journals? What is a good way to check out what I should and shouldn't eat do I make portions by size and carbs? all the basic stuff.
