Hi! I was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes a few years ago. The bad news is that you have to change your diet. The good news is that diet + exercise + medication can keep it under control.
I have been overweight for 20 years. I took most of the excess weight off last year (some dieting, lots of exercise) and my hemoglobin A1C went down.
Good luck to you in this, and you're right -- don't let it get you down! 4124 days ago
