Hello Michelle. I'm Dan Proctor, have had type 2 for about 20 years now. When I was first diagnosed
Sorry about that! After diagnosis, I really didn't take very good care of myself. Ate what I wanted, drank soda, ate chocolate, just didn't take it seriously. I started to have foot problems, pain. tingling, numbness. I'm 64 now and have a problem with numbness in my left foot up to my calf. I do eat more healthy, quit soda, have sweets now and then, eat high fiber foods, stay hydrated, all real changes for me! I'm not a doctor but see a counselor. Work with a nutritionist, exercise. All the things they tell you to do. You won't regret it! Please don't be hard on yourself. It happens to extremely healthy individuals. You'll do fine! Please take care of yourself as soon as you awaken. Hope you do well! Dan
Hi everyone I'm Joanne and prediabetic . I attended a meeting online to prevent it and they explain why people get it . I noticed a lot of the reasons why I could be in the future as I have high blood pressure, mental health problems, weight gain, not so active , its in the genes and I have PCOS too. So some I can't change but the losing weight and being more active can help prevent it . Does any of you have any of those reasons but are managing it ?
I struggled with diabetes type 2, my last a1c was 8.7 which broke my personal record, but I tried to not to eat grains at dinner, only veggies and fruits now, I hope my a1c can come down, also I need to adjust my medications, as I tried to lower the amount of meds I take, so I would have to discuss with my doctor before cutting back on the meds
Good Afternoon Kids. I am new here. I hope you don't mind if I pull up a chair and read for a bit.

Hey Everyone. @jawab-polk just joined the group. Please join me in welcoming them and introducing yourself here!
hey everyone.. i was diagnosed diabetic literally yesterday, my sugars fasting were 255 and i was in the hospital for severe leg pain. turns out my magnesium was low so that stopped most of the pain but i still have slight tingling in my toes. i’m terrified. my mom and dad both have diabetes so it runs on both sides, i guess that means i was bound to get it at some point. i lost over 100 pounds throughout the past few years but here i am, now suffering from this. they put me on metformin/gabapentin. i don’t have insurance, or a pcp. i’m 28 and i don’t have a job as of right now so that of course doesn’t help. i’ve been having the toe pain for a few weeks, kind of nervous that it’s permanent. can someone let me know if after they regulated their sugars, did the tingling stop? i’m desperate. i don’t wanna live like this..
