MYMy name is Mike, i'm 52 years old, married , got diagnosed with type 2 diabetes in 2001. My diabetes is still not in control my last a1c a month ago was 8.9. The highest it was was 13.5 5 years ago. I'm constantly sick with infections due to my diabetes my dr said. I used to weigh 330 but am down to 276, but i've plateaued out on my weight and a1c.I've been sober in AA over 23 years and not smoked in over 15 years but CANNOT get my diabetes under control due to my constant overeating. I've lost lots of jobs the last 3 years due to get respiratory infections and missing work. My wifes and i finances are never stable due to my work instability due to getting sick from my diabetes. I've joined this forum to get hope that i can get my diabetes under control and be active again. I used to be so active no one could keep up with me but not in a long time. So anyways thanks for letting me share. I'm not looking for sympathy or pity from anyone, just advice from others who got their diabetes under control so i can be a better husband, father, and worker again. thanks, "Mikey"
