Welcome Matt, tell a little about yourself, meds? How long have you had D?

Welcome aboard, Matt. Glad to know you're getting serious about this, and I can assure you that it isn't as bad as it sometimes seems. Once you've gotten strict with your control, the old habits fall away and we aren't so bedeviled with the cravings & temptations of our old lives.

Ask all the questions you want & visit often to let us know how you're doing. I hope you get as much good from this forum as I have over the years.

Welcome Matt - it's never too soon to pay close attention to our diabetes, glad you're in a place to do that now.

Look forward to hearing more about your journey w/ diabetes thus far.

You went quite a while without meds - you obviously were doing something right if your numbers were stable all that time. 500 mg of metformin isn't very much - are you seeing results from it?

Congrats on managing this thing for 10 years without meds. How has your D management been over that time ?

How are your numbers now ?
