:p Hi, I'm a 55 year old lady with type 2 diabetes - diagnosed a couple of years ago. I try to control will exercise & diet. I'm still learning this stuff. Sometimes I feel as if I don't know what to do. This diabetes thing is A JOB!! But I'm happy & blessed & praise God I found out so I could try & get this under control. I hear so many folks are walking around with diabetes & don't even know it. Well, hello folks!

Hi There Shooshoo:

Gee, I'm sorry. I somehow missed your introduction.

Yes, you are blessed(in a way) to have found out that you had
Diabetes before it damaged your body. Unbelieveable and unfortunate
how many People don't know that they have it. I told my Doctor that
everyone with even one of the risks should automatically be tested for Diabetes. He agrees.

I hope that you are doing better and learning helpful info. Take Care.

Hello Shooshoo! You have a great attitude! I think an attutude like yours is like winning the first half of the battle when we deal with our diabetes. With that incentive and a lot of hard work and dedication you should be able to get good control. Good control will enable you to live a long, healthy life with diabetes. It will also greatly increase your chances of avoiding serious complications in the future. Good luck to you!
