Drink a lot of water for one. I take my blood from my arm. I have the kind of meter that's me do that, and I get the same results.
Thank you I will try to make a bigger effort to take in more water
Hey everyone welcome to this group. Since I notice things have been a little quiet recently, why don’t we start by checking in with each other regarding our health. How are you all doing? How have you been coping with the holidays upon us, while trying to stay healthy and follow dietary suggestions from your doctors?
I’ve been stressed lately… so binge eating. This is what got me here. Some days I am ready to die. I just don’t want to die from diabetes

Hello everyone. My name is Tyronne I’m here to learn more about type 2 diabetes because my father and most of my family has it.
I see a lot of us here because a loved one is struggling with diabetes so I just wanted to share these quick tips I found that are very helpful when supporting someone through a chronic illness 🤍 What is the hardest part about watching them go through this journey? I remember my grandmother was an absolute love of food and she was so spirited and full of life, but unfortunately she had a lot of restrictions due to diabetes so we had to say no to her wishes often. That was quite difficult.

I've been a type 2 diabetic since last year in May. I've been struggling with it recently as my blood tests say its very high . I'm taking metformin extended release twice a day . I've started taking Dapagliflozin Since yesterday. I've been struggling with high blood pressure, bleeding gums and my periods too . I've recently had a blood test for my liver , sugar level , thyroid and kidney and had a ultra sound for my liver . Got to have a ultra sound for my thyroid too . What's everyone's else story about diabetes?
Been diabetic for over 40 years now, and have gone through everything you are. But now I am on the metformin once a day, Ozempic once a week, and two other insulins, one is once a day, the other is sliding scale 3 times a. I've gotten my A1c down, and everything else looks great. Plus I lost weight since on the Ozempic. Keep working with your doctor, but also be an advocate for yourself, and together you can find the right solution for you.
Hi everyone! I’ve just joined this community. Nice to meet everyone!
