"30 pounds is a great start. I know its sounds like a broken record sometimes (and I use to hate hearing it) but they really are the best things you can do for T2. Fasting bs from 350 to 121 is excellent progress."

Spock replied to LaurenAdela's discussion 'High Fasting numbers'
"OK, 142 as a fasting is not terrible, but could be better. The other numbers and their consistency would make me rejoice. AR is right on--for Type 2 with no insulin, exercise is key. If you are adding carbs, you need to work them off to maintain…"

"I agree with your assessment, not "off the charts" but not "normal" either. There's quite a few people here who were dx'ed with T2 (what I'd guess w/ the rx?) but went on for a while and it changed to T1 as stuff…"

Hi All!This is my first post. I'm a newly diagnosed diabetic (about 3 weeks). I'm on Metformin and Lisinopril (for my kidneys), but no insulin.For some reason my fasting numbers are a bit higher than I'd like. Nothing insanely off the charts, but I'm trying very hard to manage as well as I can so I can be medication free, that's my goal for 2013 (to lose weight and be medication free)I'll give you a quick history to give you more information:When I was first diagnosed, I went on as close to a…See More
