I feel like I’m posting so much on this forum, but I have many questions. FIrst, I’m Type II. My doctor has led me to believe, or rather kind of hinted, that weight loss can equal the diabetes disappearing. Is this true?
Also…how often do folks generally see an ophthalmologist/podiatrist. How about endocrinologists? Does anyone have any idea about how long diabetes related complications take to manifest? I think I was in denial a bit when I was first diagnosed. Now I seem to have thawed out a little bit and I’m pretty scared. And also, I seem to be kind of angry at myself because I know that my diabetes in weight induced. True, my family has a history of both diabetes AND hypoglycemia…but I know this is largely due to weight.
Also…in terms of food…obviously low fat = higher carbs. But I’m also concerned with fat. I just need lots and lots of input. I’ve made a commitment to stay away from carbs, especially simple carbs. I suppose i just need some more directions and input.
Thanks so much.
