Hi, everyone. My name's Cindi, and I am a T2 insulin-dependent diabetic. I suspected I was diabetic since 2006, but used diet and exercise to keep it in normal ranges. In 2009 I got really sick (part stress and lots of other factors that caused me to slack off on my diet and exercise adherence), and ended up in the hospital with bgl of over 700 and a raging UTI. That's when I was put on insulin. It's taking time, but I'm slowly adjusting and have also started eating like I did before.
