I have been reading the posts for about two weeks and it seems like you guys really do support each other. I developed diabetes after a whipple surgery for pancreatic cancer. I've had it about 4 years -mostly controlled by metformin.Just recently the blood sugars have gotten much higher. I found out I now have lung cancer for which I have had radiation in Dec. 2010.
The endocrinologist put me on Lantus and humalog if needed at each meal. For some reason this has finally woke me up to the fact that I need to eat right AND EXERCISE. I have done great this past month and hope the motivation stays. Now they told me there is some kidney problems-appt on Feb 22. I'm doing the best I can right now in the way of healthy eating & exercise-guess the rest is up to God. At times I feel just like giving up, but something clicks in and I begin to fight for a decent life again. Good use some support. I'm scared that the kedney problem could be serious. Elaine
