Rosebud George Mills (mills23456) is trying to SELL you something. This attempt to sell violates the Terms of Use of this site by trying to use it as free advertisement. George agreed to these Terms of use when he originally signed up to join DC. Otherwise he would not be on here.

I had an idea he was angling to sell stuff (I've seen a lot of salespeople come and go frying to sell their wares by trying to get free advertising in my 5+ yrs on DCso I know the approach).

He is perfectly acceptable to develop a relationship with Alliance Health (the parent company of DC) and pay for the advertising, but trying to get advertising free is an abuse of the company. It is also unethical, and I'd rather not deal with someone who is unethical, would you?

I took a long hard look at George's website and the main ingredient is Glucomannan (Konjak root). Which can easily be found through an internet search and is readily available on amazon and other sources for much less see here ~ http://www.vitaminshoppe.com/p/glucomannan-ko... — $9.99 per 100 caps, To be fair the 100 caps will only last 30 days at 3 per day). than the $59.95 per bottle (with $5.97 shipping) Sounds like a bit of a rip off to me.

You are an adult and can make up your own mind. And if you wish to get ripped off, that is your business. I disike seeing people getting taken advantage of, however.

And BTW. George's link above has been reported and may be removed at any time.

Work does not have to be an issue. The primary thing that will happen over time, whether you're Type 1 or Type 2 is that you have to be aware of it all the time. This particular disease is not one that gives you a day off. Just be prepared. Insulin and tester with you at all times - you're basically carrying your pancreas around in your pocket. Always be aware of what is around you and available as food for any low blood sugar episodes. All of it is manageable. I recently started an additional supplement with a number of digestive enzymes in it that is helping with managing my weight and A1C.

Howdy Rosebud!
WELCOME to Diabetic Connect!
Sorry you qualify for this shindig but since you do I'm glad you're here!

Wondering how long you've had diabetes?
How have you been trying to manage your Blood Glucose (BG) levels so far?

I note that you have used the type2 diabetes label, so I take it that this is your type.

Below i note you've left an addendum incicating trouble with eating and moniror your BG "sugar" levels as well.

Since you are living in your workspace you could modify Lynn's suggestion about setting up a shedule. You could set alarm clocks to correspond to the schedule you set up.

I am someone who has to meet a paratrsansit "bus" at least 3 days a week to transport me to my dialysis treatments. So I set the alarm clock on my cell phone. I know that when my alarm on the phone goes off I must get my rear in gear to get on the bus so I can get dialyzed. No matter what ever else I am doing at the time it goes off I have disciplined myself to shut off whatever else it was and get my gear and head off to meet the bus.

You will need to develop the same kind of discupline for yourself.

As I write the above words it stuck me: I wonder if you might have ADHD as I do?

It will be interesting to see your answers to my earlier questions. How you answer may well have a bearing on the quality of suggestions you receive.

God's best to you and yours

James Baker

Perhaps setting up a schedule for work, meals, and exercise will help you fit all of these into your day and manage your weight. ~Lynn @Glucerna
