and I wanted to give a shout out. I was diagnosed 4 years ago with type 2 diabetes and I hadn't taken it as seriously as I should have until my doctor said I might have to go on insulin. I had made quite a few changes in my diet by eliminating a lot of the snack foods and sweets I used to frequently indulge in and got rid of 90% of the sodas when I was first diagnosed… unfortunately (and this is the where the not taking it seriously comes in) I backslid from time to time - especially during times of stress or the holidays.
What I'm looking to do is look in to other ways I can keep my blood sugar levels down (I've had more than a few 200+ reading when I remember to take my readings) and get some advice from those who have been able to keep their blood sugar levels down and stable.
