I am David, I am 40 yrs old 6' tall weighing 270lbs Professional Driver. Here on January 10 2011 I was diagnosed with type 1 Diabetes through a yearly phisical for my CDL where my A1c was 10.4. To be honest at first I did not believe it but have come to accept it. I have seen my primary doctor and have been put on Metformin, Lisinopril, and Simvastatin to help control my Diabetes. Now to my main question I have been doing a little research, where I found this site, and am needing help besides the medication, which to be honest I dont like takeing but do as perscribed, what else can i do? I have read about carb counting and watching my sugar intake and things like that but like in carb counting what magial nube am I shooting for? Also as far as exercise what types of exercise should I be doing? As stated above I do drive for a living so for th most part I am behind a wheel of a charter bus 8-10 hrs a day. Now as of right now due to this I have been put on med leave of absence because I am unable to get my medical certificate for my CDL but I am looking for things that I can do now and also on the road when I am able to go back to work. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
