I was just told that I have Type 2 diabetes this week ( Tuesday to be exact). I am trying to learn what to do, when to do it and the benefits of my actions. I know some thing about diabetes, but realize there is so much more to learn. I also am not sure how to start in regards to eating ( when? what?). I am scheduled to go to classes on the 22nd of July, but I need infomation now. I took my medicine for the first time last nignt ( I am taking a pill for my diabetes, a blood pressure pill ( to protect my kidneys according to my doctor as my b/p is always within normal range) and a pill for cholestoral. I also learned how to use my meter ( my sugar was 187) Can any of you provide your suggestions, insight, etc. with me? I would appreciate it.
