Thanks for your nice comments. My pics that look like the Caribbean were taken in Aruba. My husband & I were there in March of this and last year. It is a beautiful island.
You have an awesome A1c !! Great job in getting there.
You should check out some of the Type 2 groups and the groups about weightloss and diet. My guess is that you would add a lot of value to those groups with all you have been able to accomplish for yourself. I think all of us here hate our disease. It's nice to have a forum to talk about the concerns, questions, and feelings that come with that to a bunch of people who understand the situation completely because they are living it too.
Welcome to TuDiabetes! Check out some of the groups on the site. It is a great way to get to know the community. I bet you'll have a lot to share with others about how to get such a tight A1C. Good for you!
Totally agree! I took Type 1 when I was a kid of 10 and was told the cure for it was 10 years in the making. Well NOT YET! I even went so far as having a pancres transplant to "cure" it didn't work.
Type 1's are totally dependent on insulin b/c their pancres quit making it and MUST have shots (or pump like I do) to get the insulin in their body. The meds that work for Type 2 are insuffent to our systems and we must watch out carb intake. We must make sure we have enough insulin to cover the foods we eat or risk going way high. Type 2 do produce some insulin but it's not enough for their body's to main tain. Type 2's also get the tabelets to lower their b/s's and also can turn insuiln resestance. OK not good but just my take. It is probably wrong but that's what they thold me. Now if you get on our Foruum and ask MANY ppl will come in and tell you the modern version.
REALLY Glad to meat you! That would NEVER work for me b/c I'm a Type 1 totally dependedt on insulin. Think that maybe that big change in your eating habits and such might have something to do with the fact you don't have to take meds now?
Yep almost within stone throwing distance! Well not really I have to have a car to get to Mc Kenzie! LOL! Just up I40 from me!
