I have been a Type ll diabetic male having to take insulin and oral meds for the last 22 years. I was part of the national ACCORD Diabetes progarm for 8 years at University Hospital in Cleveland, Ohio. I control my diabetes with a low carb diet and exercise, and yes medication. I was 265 lbs. [ 5'11" ] I now weigh 218# and average 6.5 to 6.8. I still have problems with my Triglyceridecount.
I presently eat alow carb salad on Monday, Wedsday and Friday and maintain a carb count for the day at about 45. I maintain a carb count of about 65 per day the rest of the week. Like I say, I'm in controle of my diabetes, but need Ideas on getting my Tri number down from about the 300 range.
