Stumbled upon this site while searching for an answer for one of my problems with my Glucometer. I posted the question and got really good feedback. I really appreciate that. Then I realized that I had not introduced myself, so here it goes.
About 3 weeks back I was told that my blood sugar was high (150 on one day and 140 on the next) and I have Type 2 diabetes. First I convinced myself that it might be due to all the stress and medication I was having because of my severe allergies. But after meeting with the dietitian, she knocked down all my excuses for having high numbers I had to accept that indeed I had Type 2 Diabetes. Since then I have started changing my eating habits and sedentary lifestyle. I was a strict vegetarian before all of this but was eating lot of junk food. The diet plan already seems to be working because I am starting to notice my fasting levels have dropped to the 110 range and after meals to 125 range. Also my weight has gone down from 197 to 186. And the most surprising thing is that I seem to be coping with the news lot better than I thought I would. I also found a ton of information especially from the links mentioned by John Crowley. I am really happy I stumbled upon this site and feel confident that I can manage my diabetes very well from the knowledge I get from the community. For that I sincerely thank all the contributing members of this community for their collective knowledge.
Looking forward to gaining even more knowledge and managing my diabetes even better.
