My name is Addie and I'm a Type 2 diabetic. I was diagnosed August of 2008 with an A1c of 11.3% and a non-fasting BG of 346 mg/dL.

Right now I am on a very low-carbohydrate diet, as well as Metformin and Glyburide. I am proud to say that I have lost 53 pounds so far and that I brought my A1c down to 5.0% as of my last doctor's appointment in March.

I feel so much better now than I have in years, especially because of the significant weight loss! Right now my goal is to improve my HDL and lower my total cholesterol while maintaining good blood sugar.

I have joined other diabetes forums on the internet, but I am always looking for more information, support, and advice.

I think that many of us cannot just give up the things that they say is bad and I am a big sucker for Cheese!!!, Yeah love the stuff and what better that is free of carbs and that's is why we love it so much hey! But what better to have cheese is a nice bottle of red! yeah.
Cholesterol is my battle too and I cannot give up my cheese. :(:eek:
