Hi NSDad126, welcome to the forum.

Looking forward to hearing more from you. Under what circumstances were you diagnosed? How were you initially keeping your BG under control (diet, meds, supplements, exercise, etc) initially and what is it taking to get the job done today?

We are a friendly but nosey bunch here, and we share what has been successes and failures to try to keep increasing our knowledge of what it takes to control our diabetes and not let it control us.

Well that is a fair request. I've started a thread that reveals a bit more about myself......
