seems like a great goal...

unfortunately once branded with that type 2 label... there is no cure but we can manage it (I am ) with or without medication (depending on many things)

could you let us know what you are doing? what medications if any? what food choices? exercise?

this can help us understand your situation more and others can see it to try to find new ways of handling things if its working for you.


Welcome to the best forum to find the information and friends for diabetics

Default 123, That is Me!

I am a VERY private person so no I will not tell you more. I do not wish to sound rude but I am only here to help and be helped as much as I feel comfortable doing so.

The meaning of type nothing = 0, never said diabetes can be cured but you can get to low enough numbers to drop your meds. That's the goal I'm aiming for.

Welcome to the forum, 123

We are always curious how other diabetics manage their condition so we usually ask questions, but there's no need to say anymore than you want to. Do visit often and read the threads. Some of the other members' intro threads contain a lot of information and map their journey from out-of-control blood sugar to successfully gaining low and stable blood sugar levels - always an encouragement for us all.

That has been my goal, as well, which I have met - and so have many others here. You'll be in good company.

You need five posts for that privilege. Almost there.
