Hi everyone. I was diagnosed with diabetes 2 about 3 years ago. I was treated with avandia and went on to lose about 22 pounds. Eventually, I did not need oral meds and was maintaining a glycolated hgb at 6.2. Unfortunately, I became casual, gained some weight back and recently my level was 7.0. I am now highly motivated to take off 60 pounds and get to where I need to be. To date the only known complication is some foot neuropathy. I have no signs of diabetic retinopathy.
I look forward to working with everyone in reaching and maintaining a healthy weight and exercising as we can. Thanks for having this forum and being forthwright about your journeys.
