Hi,

So my Mom just found out she is Type 2 and I have just a basic idea of type 2 and I am wanting to know more. My Mom has a pretty low glycemic idndex diet, but she could use some more cardo exercise to burn some calories. I dont believe the doctor has put her on Metphormin, but this may happen later. I am just wondering if anybody has any suggestions on where to research more on type 2 in terms of diet, exercise and stress.

Thanks,

Lucas

T2 is different in many ways from T1 so you will want to read up on it. I found the Bloodsugar101 website very helpful. I also found "The First Year: Type 2 Diabetes" by Gretchen Becker and "The Diabetes Solution" by Dr. Richard Bernstein very helpful.
