Hello All:

I am new to the diabetesforum but not new to diabetes. I am a 40 year old male who has been diagnosed with Type II diabetes since 1998. It has been an up hill struggle but I am trying to persevere this disease by changing my lifestyle. Hopefully this forum will assist me with finding new and innovative ways to control my unmanageable glucose level and lose weight. Look forward to learning. Thanks

lifestyle change

Are you really willing to make a total lifestyle change? I know you said that you have type 2, but, do you understand type 1 diabetes?
My daughter was diagnosed with type 1 about 19 months ago and has been following Dr. Robert O. Young's, The pH Miracle for Diabetes since she was diagnosed. She has not had to take insulin and her blood sugar regulated within a few weeks after beginning his program.

I am really trying to change but it is really so hard. This is my reasoning for finding a support group to give me encouragement and guidance during my battle with diabetes. Do you have any contact information for the doctor you spoke of in your previous response.

KD you really haven't told us much about yourself so it is difficult to give you any advice. What kind of medication do you use to control your blood sugar? Have you been told you amy have to use insulin. If your blood sugar is consistently running high then insulin would be the best way to get good control. Many Type 2's use insulin and some of them use insulin pumps too. Are you currently eating low carb meals, taking medication and exercising every day? Most Type 2's are able to get good control in that way but there are those who have to use insulin.

I have been Type 1 for 63 years and I am very healthy. Insulin did that for me. I eat only 130 carbs per day and walk at a fast pace for one hour every day. I am 69 years old or I would be getting even more exercise. What steps are you taking to have good control?

Well for a start, Logging on here is a good step and the next is getting to know what carbs to avoid. Exercise is another thing and you progress in your activity slowly and loose the weight. :D :p

This will not happen O'Night as this will take some time and education is the weapon!! :D:)
