Hello Everyone I m unfortunately a new member in this blog. But i would love to connect with everyone. 3 weeks ago i had my blood work done and my fasting blood glucose level came out to 99 mg/dl. furthermore my insulin level was at 22. which was alot. Doctor told me that I am prediabetic since i have high bad cholestrol and low good cholestrol. I am 29 and its just very heart breaking. I am 5,9 with a weight of 152 lb. no family history of diabetes. six months ago my blood sugar was 84 mg/dl but i dont know what happened in 5 months that i got prediabetic .I guess it happens when it has to happen no one can stop it.I would love to hear everyones story.

My husband was pre-diabetic and was able to drop his A1c back to normal by the proper nutrition. Don't give up - you can stop it!

Ok Ali.

When first Dx'd in 1995 I was angry and then depressed and I was in denial. My wife at the time pulled me in to the Pastor's office one Sat and threatened to divorce me if I didn't start taking care of my diabetes. That got me on the straight and narrow, and I started taking my Metformin and taking better care of my T2. I eventually had a kidney shutdown and needed to go on NPH insulin and on dialysis. I no longer inject insuiin as I found out I had enough of my own insulin output to manage my BG levels if I ate very carefully.

As far as my meal plan is concerned you may find it here ~ http://www.diabeticconnect.com/diabetes-discu... Please do me the kindness of reading it and then posting your thoughts on the replies to the discussion.
