I found out I was a type 2 a week ago, and it was tough to take. Since then I have read all I can find out about this, and have changed my diet completely. I now eat what I should be eating, cut out the garbage food completely, startied drinking green smoothies, and starting taking Metformin twice daily. My BS has gone from 236 to 104 this morning. I only have to continue this course but I already feel better, walk 30 minutes daily, and haven't done that in years. All the posts and info in here have been very helpful to me. Thanks to all.

Well thats a great start, keep it that way too! Some just don't keep up with their lifestyle change as a diabetic unfortunately, and I raise my hand to that…I am not innocent by all means..though I am slowly getting better with some things. But always great to hear of a DB friend doing well! *Hugs* Sheila

If you keep up what you are doing you will continue to improve..but as others have mentioned, there will be Great days and not so great days..but just keep in mind that with this condition it is "Day by Day" and tomorrow is another day.

That is fabulous! Keep up the good work and the monitoring. It sure does get tiring after a while, but it's VERY exciting to get good numbers! Take care!

Wow, in one week? Way to go. Remember, if you loose about 10% of your weight, no matter what it is currently, you will also benifit and it will help your T2 control. Please feel free to ask away any questions. There is nothing we havent heard nor experienced.

Bgmyke 2009-06-03 16:11:49 -0500 Report

Forgive my ignorance but what is T2?

Sarguillo 2009-06-03 16:17:17 -0500 Report

Type 2 as oposed to T1 which is Type 1. Different aspects of the diabetes. Dont get anyone started on T1.5 or others.
Its all the same, different languages. We are all in basicly the same life boat. And all trying to hand on.

Sarguillo 2009-06-03 16:18:01 -0500 Report

and since you are new to this, it can be owverwhelming. dont let the downs get you down. Please feel free to ask away.
Been there, done that, and lived to tell the tale.

Thanks for the support. Nice to have a place to come to where others are in the same boat as me.

Great for you! My son just went thru the same thing as you. He was diagnoised just recently, and did the same. He is doing great and so will you! Keep up the good work!

Keep up the good work. I'm glad to hear you have gotten on the right track. Keep up the good work.

Way to go, Bgmyke!

That is fantastic progress in a week. Be sure to keep up the healthy habits. And don't worry, you're probably going to have some days that aren't as good as today—that's just the nature of the beast.

In fact, it would probably be good for you to read this article from the Ask the Expert section. Our diabetes educator explains that over time, your body will need more and more help to maintain healthy blood sugars. So don't get discouraged as things start to change. Simply do what you did this time, figure out what you need to do and do it! :-)
