"Popcorn is not that bad, anything in moderation. Nuts tend to have the cals and sodium, which for me are a pain. Popcorn with light salt, not a huge bowl..just enjoy it."

Posted on March 18, 2010 at 4:11pm 8 Comments

Ok, went for my checkup today and walked out of there with a 5.4 A1C so the doctor recommended Metformin. I want to lose about 15lbs or so and she said it ca help...soooo ? What do you think ? What are your experiences with Metformin..? Thanks to you all!

What is the best meter out there..?? I have had rotten luck with mine..

Posted on March 9, 2010 at 5:22pm 8 Comments

Ok, my first meter was the Accu Chek which was ok but really expensive...then I tried out the Wallgreens True Track, but my readings were inaccurate. I just recently got Contour Bayer which I like but still don't really know....what do you recommend?

Insurance for diabetes..??? Who do you recommend..what to do?

Posted on November 17, 2009 at 2:57pm 1 Comment

This has been a major problem for me, I pay $179 a month now for some kind of insurance that only covers a few med visits.. No med coverage, insulin, testing...etc. This one insurance agent told me you CANNOT get insured if you have diabetes. Does anyone have any ideas as what I can do, is there a provider you recommend? Thanks for any help!

Does Cinnamon lower blood sugar..?
