Jolly Dolly,
I don't often write comments on these forums but I found your comment very alarming! If I read your note correctly you said that your BG's are typically around 450!!! This is very dangerous. I am a physician and have been a diabetic for >40 yrs. I have to tell you that you need to see a physician immediately. It doesn't have to be an endocrinologist, a FP would do. But you must get your BG's under control soon. Both your immediate and long term health are in great jeopardy! This is dangerously high BG. I don't know what "tried almost everything " means but there is no reason why your BG should be at this level in 2010 in the USA.. I don't mean to sound alarmist but I am very concerned about you. You are very young and your health is in great danger if you don't take care of yourself immediately.

Hello all!

Just joined, stumbled across this group while searching for one possibly in the East Baton Rouge area. I am Tanya, 23 going on 24 in 22 days (yay!), out of control medically uncovered/uninsured T2 who has tried almost everything but has been unsuccessful in gaining control of it (BG's average about 450+ these days and I have no idea where I am at A1c-wise), originally from Queens, NY but moved down to Orlando, FL in February, 2005 and now to East Baton Rouge parish of Louisiana in November, 2009. It's taking A LOT of getting used to... It is WAY different than Orlando, FL and up north... But I am slowly getting accustomed to it and meeting people like me in the area would definitely help! :) ♥ Hope to meet some new friends and share experiences together!

Hello everyone. I am living right now in NW Arkansas. Born, raised, and married in Columbia, SC... I have been a diabetic for 6 years. It's a rollercoaster ride for me. My stats stay around 150's fasting. I know thats too high. I lost 40 lbs when I first found out, but I yo yo a lot. Over the holidays I gained 10 back. Now at 270. My life story...yoyoyoyoyo. I am so happy to have found this web site. I need support! I am loving it! Will take any advice to heart...Hugs, Emily
