Default Hello

Hello, everyone my name is Olive', I have been a type 2 diabetic since 1996. I am a customer service rep, wife and mother. I love meeting new people and learning from their experiences.

I am excited to have found you all and looking forward to growing from this experience.

Hello Olive,

Welcome to the forum. Tell us a little bit more about yourself. What are your numbers like and what do you do to control your BG. Have you surfed through BloodSugar101 and DietDoctor yet ? Both these sites offer free invaluable advice on how to control blood sugar.

Good to meet you, Olive. Tell us more about yourself and how you've managed your diabetes all these years. What meds do you take and what is your way-of-eating? Do you eat to your meter? We're more than chatty, we're downright nosy! But we want to get to know you better, so we ask a lot of questions!
