I'm new here and I've been diagnosed with type 2 since 2011. My dr talks about my a1c and all…but I still struggle with taking my meds consistently and checking my levels.
Since being diagnosed, I've come to know other friends and family who deal with this. My dad has type 1…I have been to the dietician and I know the drill about portion size and eating small meals and snacks, but I don't eat a lot. Or often but when I do eat, it maybe more than what I should.
I try to walk more. I'm used to having high sugars, usually in the twos , which isn't the best. I take metformin 60 units of levimere and 22 units of humalog with meals. I'm also taking lisinopril, as my dr said, to protect my kidneys.
I'm afraid of dialysis or losing my vision or any of the other side effects…It seems I am always grumpy or sleepy and irritable any my sex drive is not the same. I always feel stressed out in some way…and at times, a bit sad because my body isn't functioning right and I feel it's my fault and I'm trying to control it.
How to deal?
