  • About fjk2013
    Biography
    I guess you can say I am a little of everything... I am a 57 year old male living in Central NJ we own a small gentleman's farm. I was a Software Development Project Manager for 20 years. I worked in the following industries: telecom, healthcare insurance; banking and brokerage. For the past two years I have been working with medical writers on a contract basis auditing their Protocols, and Clinical Study Reports before they are submitted to FDA for consideration as a new drug or an amendment.

    My days start early when you live on a farm; I am up fairly early in the morning to feed our animals (livestock). We have 4 horses; 2 Hereford beef cows; 8 chickens (egg layers); dog and of course a barn cat.

    Hobbies/Interests: Carriage Driving; participating in some carriage driving shows along the east coast; auctions; searching for antiques; repair and restoration of antique carriage lamps.
    Your Location
    Central, NJ USA
    Your experiences with diabetes
    Diagnosis of Type 2 was an eye opener for me; at first shock then what to do. I could not say it was a negative experience; maybe disappointing knowing that I could not indulge in "fun things" to eat anymore. A positive aspect is that I look and feel real good. I have always been independent and sought to solve my problems on my own. It does help if you have friends in the same situation. I am a data driven individual; I process my thoughts through analysis and quantification. Tracking my blood sugar, meds, weight, A1C via a spreadsheet on my laptop has worked for me since I was diagnosed in 2013. I have been on metformin 1000mg 2X day since diagnosis. Lately placed on a statin for risk reduction. Any advice if I can offer... be careful of which statin you are on; most statins will raise your Fasting glucose, increase insulin resistance and raise your A1C. There are only a couple that do not; do your research if you need to control your cholesterol.

    I really starting following LCHF for the last three months. Prior approach to managing my diabetes was through reduced carb and ADA guidelines; it worked somewhat but I do not think it was as effective as the LCHF. I have tried different supplements; some were good and some I saw no effect. In my online searches I was directed to join this forum; I decided to join. No regrets.

    Good luck to everyone on their journey.

    Even things that say 'sugar free' are sometimes loaded with carbs.
