Hello. I am new to DC. I was diagnosed 10 years ago with Type II. Finding accurate and helpful information to help me control my diabetes has been difficult. My budget is limited so I couldn't just go out and buy every book on diabetes, and the docs don't give you much either. I am excited to find a site that will help remedy that situation!

Welcome to DC! This is a place where we can hang with other diabetics, get good info, support and commiserate with one another. I've been here a few months and I love it. Hope you will too! ~James~

I recently found this site. There is a free PDF book you can download. I recommend you read it. I did something simular over the last ten months and my A1C went from 14.1 to 5.6 in seven months. I don't eat as much carbs as he recommends but with testing you may be able to tolerate more carbs than I can. I also don't have to take Meds anymore. Quit then last April.

Good Luck
