I am new here, and was just diagnosed with Diabetes Type 2 two days ago. I am not yet on meds. I have to go back for a follow-up appt.
What can I do to help myself? I want to feel better. These are my current symptoms. Extreme fatigue, trigger finger, debilitating muscle cramping especially at night, frequent urination, very hungry, wake up hourly with hands asleep/numb.
I'm reading as much as I can. Im
active, walk or hike 3-5 miles 4-5 times a week and swim/water aerobics 2-3 times a week. My diet is good but could be better. The only sweet I haven't been able to quit completely is ice cream. I tried sugar free but I think I'm allergic to sorbitol, it makes my stomach a mess and I get bad headaches.
So, I'd appreciate any help. Thank you in advance.
