I am kind of new to this. I have lknown diabetics and seen some of the terrible effects this didease can have on people but I just can't seem to get a sense of urgency about the life changes I need to make. My doctor does not seem to have much of a sense of urgency and he, too, is diabetic. I am making some changes and I keep an eye on my blood sugar. It rarely gets above180. twice this year it has been over 200. I havew been told that is not too bad, and I have had two major surgeries this year, and have been told that that can effect sugar levels. Can anyone tell me how concerned I should be. Is it right to be as lacadaisical as I am feeling?
