    Hi. I'm Ann, middle aged - in my 60's (I plan to live to be at least 120.) In 2011 I had a routine blood test. The nurse called to say I have type 2. It wasn't really a surprise because it hits every member of my family between the ages of 40 and 60. At family gatherings, the diabetics seemed to be running a foot race to see who can put down the most pie and cake, so I knew I couldn't rely on them for advice. Well, what's that old saying? 'In times of trouble, Google it.' That's how I found this forum. I lurked and read and learned.

    My last A1c was 5.9. That might not sound like an awesome number to most of you, but it is to me because I'm not aiming for 'normal' bg, I'm aiming at staying off diabetic meds and keeping complications at bay. So far so good.

    I have seen how many of you spend countless hours, patiently and tirelessly answering the same questions over and over for the sole purpose of helping people who are scared and need help. Thank you.
