I was just diagnosed November 20th and everything seems to be so confusing to me. My Doctor has me testing my blood twice a day and I am totally confused about what the blood results mean. I test at 7:00a.m. and then again at 4:00p.m. My count really fluxuates. I am on Metformin. I’m sure that my Doctor wants to see how I do on the Metformin. I take two pills a day before meals. I am overweight so I’ve been put on a 1600 calorie a day diet . I’m getting more used to the amount of carbs, protein and fat that I can have a day. I’m not a young chick either. I’m 65. I need all the suggestions that I can get and also some good recipes.
I have a husband and children who are very supportive of me. I’ve made it through Christmas pretty good. I’ve only had about 3 Christmas cookies. My husband had to go help today with building a handicap ramp for a young man who was recently paralized, so I made him take all the cookies with him so I wouldn’t be tempted.
I’m really exited that I have this website to go to.
The attached picture is of me with my husband and five children taken on Christmas.
Thanks in advance to everyone who can help me.
