I believe that all types are controlled by three things. Medication, diet and exercise. There are lots of sites online that can help you.Good Luck

you are most likely a type 2 or pre-type 2— since you aren't in a hospital and put on insulin before you left…but that is just a guess.

As a type 2 (or pre-type 2) you should focus on reducing the amount of carbs you eat.

Would it be wise for a lung cancer patient to smoke as much as they'd like until they find what stage they are in?

Regardless of your type (pre, type I or type II) there will be a change to your eating patterns and the change should start now. You can experiment with some foods and monitor your levels more frequently to see what agrees and disagrees with your body.

I can't tell you what will work for you but I would seriously bet against Ho Hos, cheese curls, regular soda/pop, and I'm gonna bet against frosted flakes whether you want to gain weight, maintain weight or lose weight.

You may want to think about bran cereals, whole grain products, low fat yogurt, etc and substituting the bad with good. There are good sweets and snack foods for you. They are just different from what you've had.

Regardless of your type, be the type that succeeds!
