The diagnosis scared me, I found out because my eyesight went blurry my blood sugar was 550, but the hospital had classes and my insurance company had retired nurses and dieticians to help, learned about carbs and walking. My a1c was10.3 now its 7.1 and because of changing eating and walking, I'm down from 247 lbs to 217. I'm feeling better, before diabetes I didn't take my health seriously, now I do, I'm not overly picky but I just watch my carbs, If i want dessert, then I don't eat bread. With the help of diet drinks and cranberry juice made with splenda, I'm finding things easier than I expected.
