I was diagnosed in may with type 2, I am on 1000 mg of Metfornin in the evening and Glucatrol 10 mg in the mornings, my BS numbers are still running high around 140-180, sometimes 110-120 but not on a regular basis. I have an appointment with a new doctor in October which is the earliest I could get. Not happy with old doctor, had to ask for meter and all she said was to watch my diet, no recommendation for a diabetes educator or nutritionist. I have close to 150 lbs. to lose so her advise was no help to me. I tried a Atkins like diet, for close to 2 months and only lost the initial water weight and no more.
I joined CK yesterday and will up my carb level and count calories. It's been a frustration, overwhelming and depressing couple of weeks but I will not let this disease get the best of me.
