I originally joined a couple of years ago but never posted until today. I am a type 2, dx'd in 2007, so going on 4 years now. I live in NorthEast Ohio near Lake Erie. I currently use 2550 of metformin and a relatively low carb diet and lots of Coconut Oil to manage my bgs. Last HbA1c was 5.9 hoping to get it to the mid 5's for the next one. I have 5 kids from the age of 21-32, no grandchildren yet, still hoping. Glad to be here.
