On March 16 th after two months of feeling gross, I finally went to the doctor and was diagnosed with Type 2. I was so in denial,honestly who loses weight over Christmas by accident,thirsty ? could not satisfy this thirst. I had other symptoms, my blurry vision was one of them that scared the bejeebes out of me. My blood sugar after my 12 hour fast was 19.9.I was put on Metformin1000 x2, Victoza .6 to start and Crestor. My cholesterol was fine but being diabetic he wanted it lower..
So I went on overload, cleaned out the cupboards,fridge and went to the library, I am only cooking from Diabetic cookbooks and am scared to stray even a little. Since Christmas I have lost 50 pounds, 26 since being on Victoza. My doctor said I can have 10 % of my daily calories be sugars. My hubby thinks I am going overboard.. My blood sugars , I only test two hours after lunch and they are always under 8. Does anyone else have these same fears? Can you eventually lighten up and have that sugar in your coffee?I am riding my bike an hour everyday,plus I walk my dog for an hour.I just worry that I am not doing enough.
