Like "Sisiay - Thank you so much for all that information. Yes, Grandpa had Type 2, Dad is borderline Type 2 (no insulin AFAIK). Good to know about metformin - that I can handle price wise. I will check out that book. Right now its hard doing my own foods because we can't afford two menus - hubby doesn't like a lot of foods ... but I'll manage *grins* And you're do right about seeing a Doc ... I truly will when I can, but I am sure it'll be a few months before I can, hence why I'll do what I can in the meantime. Have an awesome day! =)"
