Hello Joe and welcome to the forum, I am new here also. But not new to "D". There is lots of good information here and the people are great.

As Shanny mentioned, Testing is important, gives each of us a reading of just how our bodies react to different foods. For me the mornings seem to be my biggest 'problem' on maintaining a "good" reading.

Hi there Joe! I'm controlling mine by diet and a small amount of exercise. I eat about 30 carbs a day now after doing under 20 and losing 50 lbs since July 1 and I'm trying to see if I can do it without drugs. Don't know yet if I can, but I sure would like to. Right now, I'm gradually adding carbs, 5 at a time per week and doing fine. If it doesn't work, I'll ask for Metformin XR.

Read all the posts that seem to apply to you and ask all the questions you need and we'll try to answer as best we can!
