Hi everyone. I just found this site and decided to join in. I was diagnosed with T2 two years ago. I guess I didn't take it seriously because I'm still trying to get my BS down to an acceptable level. I recently moved and am trying to locate a new doctor. Any thoughts as to whether it needs to be an Endocrinologist or a GP? I'm sure my meds need to be re-examined.

We're glad you're here… I've only been on this site for about a week and so many people have such good advise. I just found out that I'm type 2 about a week ago and I have already lost 7 lbs. I'm on meds but they're CRAZY!I've taken them for 4 days now and they make me sick :( Good luck!

Thanks so much for the warm welcome. I am determined to put my health as my priority. It feels great to have friends who can relate. My husband just had blood work done today and will get his results, including sugar level, next week.

A GP FIRST.. THEY ARE CHEAPER.. THEN JUST WATCH YOUR NUMBERS AN STAY WITH FOOD THAT KEEP THE BS DOWN.. LIKE MY SNACK IS TURKEY DOGS COLD WITH PEPPER JACK CHEESE RAPPED AROUND THEM.. LOTS OF BAKED CHICKEN, SALADS AN WHEAT PRODUCTS WITH LOW CARBS THAT KEEPS MY NUMBERS AROUND 130 OR LOWER…HOPE THIS HELP YOU…

Thank you for your suggestions. My lowest number today was 160, and that's great compared to the past few months! One of my favorite snacks is thin smoked ham with provolone cheese…rolled up together!

I would start with a GP so that when you get sick you have someone to go to.Get a new doctor ASAP so you can get your BS under control. That is very important. Lastly, welcome and we are glad to have you here.
