In the two years I have had T2, I have refused "to let it control my life". This means I have eaten what I wanted when I wanted. I knew my A1C would be high because my BSs were 200-400+ & I had gone to the ER a couple times because it was too high. My A1C in Sept. was 10.6. Frustrated in my inability to get my BS down, my doctor finally gave me insulin.
Since starting, I've tried to eat better, but my BSs are usually a minimum of 250. So, I started trying to better understand T2 and found this group. In the last 2 days, my BSs have been better, but not ideal. So, i have a lot of work to do.
Since I'm taking insulin, my question is how bad is it on my body to "cheat". I'm having a hard time giving up my daily coke. I rationalize that i can just take a bit more insulin. Thoughts?
