Hi all. 36 yr old with type 2. My last 3 HbA1c have been 12, 7.1, 8.1. BMI of 31.6 and on metformin, glimepiride, pravastatin, lisinopril. I have found that DM is not easy to live with, and that it requires a great amount of discipline esp as concerns food and exercise. Diet is especially challenging for me. At least exercise is improving. I plan to shed at least 30 lbs over the next one year.
