Have you been to a diabetic education clinic Yet? Most Dr's
send their patients the first month. If their isn"t one in your
area check with your count Nurses office or the public health
office they should have printed information on carb counting
and exercise to help you.

Very important because your bloodsugar levels indicate if your eating the right foods or not. Sometimes when it's high you might not be getting the correct foods through the day. I eat smaller meals thru the day and nutritional snacks in between to make sure my levels say within the limits. But you've come to the right place their are lots of friends here to answer your question. Exercise is another goo thing to do to keep your levels right in place too. Hope you enjoy the site and keep in touch.

I have just started having the same problem, weight loss. I lost all the weight I needed to after I was diagnosed and I stabilized at a good healthy weight. So I am interested in how things turn out for you. I am pretty sure I have some type of problem because my appetite is good and I know I am eating plenty of food. Recently I just tried adding more calories, but that is hard without adding many more carbs! So I just posted about it.
