Ok… I am 44, female, breast and thyroid cancer survivor… and diagnosed on Friday with Type 2 diabetes. My a1c was 8.5 and fasting glucose 153. So I am not out of control, but not good by any stretch…
So here is my plan… 2-3.5 carb choices per meal and 1/2 to 1 carb choice per snack (times 3 snacks). Coffee in am and red wine with dinner… Blood Glucose Control homeopathic with meals. Plus 30 minutes exercise a day .
I am VERY overweight from inactivity due to complications from cancer treatments and, frankly, eating like a pig… This is exactly what I needed to scare the cr*p out of me and get me eating healthy and exercising.
Should I check fs when I wake up or right before breakfast?
Is that the right amount of carb choices?
Is there a way to check a1c at home?
Is there anything else I should be doing?
Using On Track on my android to track… is that a good program?
Has anyone had success with homeopathic remedies?
Does anyone drink coffee or wine to stabilize bs?
My fs on Fri were in the 150s… Sat… 130s… today 120s… and have lost 4 pounds… so I feel like I am moving in the right direction, but I want to know what else I should be doing…
Blessings to all, and thanks for any info you can give me! Susanna
