I was gestational diabetic a couple of years ago. That is how I received my glucometer:) I was told to see a dr when I finished nursing my 11.5 lbs baby boy:D LOL! Nope!
no more medical insurance; so I've been doing it on my own.
I'm defiantly diabetic! I test as often as I can afford so that I can tell when I eat something new or even same old foods but different recipe. I can even see a small difference when I do this. I'm learning as much as I can in preperation for the day I can no longer afford the test strips. ( sigh... that is going to happen sooner than I would like.)
Dis ease and finances never make a great pair!
I found you all today as I was searching to find the million dollar answer to the question "How many carbs should a dibetic eat?"
For me? I try to eat my carbs as a veggie. I cheat more than I would like to admit.... I either step on my little stepper or walk in good weather.
I'm still in need of getting rid of about 50 more pounds. (I'm down from 250 to 182 lbs.. so I have a way to go.)
Glad I found you and hope to make new friends here!
