So, I have not been to this site in over a year. A lot has changed for me. I am now divorced. I now go to school full time plus work full time. I am very busy and the thing that I have been letting slide is not taking care of myself. So, I met a wonderful guy who I now live with (we just purchased our first house) and he is helping me change. I am just still having a hard time. I changed to a different doctor. He has kept me on the same medicine, but had put me on a very strict diet. I take 40 units of Levimer 2 times a day and 1000 mg of metformin 2 times a day. From what I heard, this is very little medicine compared to most. The diet right now is what I am struggling with most. I eat cereal with milk in the morning, 1/2 sandwich (tuna, turkey, chicken) with a salad for lunch (no mayonnaise based dressing), and 5/6 oz meat, 2 vegetable, 1 starch for dinner. Here are the NO's: fried foods, french fries, chips, cornbread, pork, mayonnaise, breads, desserts, juice, croutons, cheese, or bacon bits. I asked if I could change cereal to scrambled eggs, but was advised to stick to the diet as it reads. And I also struggle with remembering to take my medicine. Any advise will be greatly appreciated.
