I was diagnosed about 3 years ago. I ignored it until last Feb. My A1c was 11.8 When I took my bs it was almost always in the 300's some times low 400's. I found a wonderful endocrinologist who set me up on a regiment of medication And told me to loose 75 lbs. I weighed 245 at that time. I saw a dietitian once a week for 8 weeks and started a little exercise. It has been a long hard road. Fighting wanting to eat every thing under the sun. I have lost 67 lbs. And 4 dress sizes. I am in a good place now but I am afraid if going back to were I was. HELP! Are there support groups out there? I was thinking of starting one at my church. Does anyone know how you do that?
