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

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..

Welcome to all our new friends. I have type 2 diabetes and want to control it by diet. I eat gluten free and pretty low carb, but still taking 1500 mg of metformin and 40 mg of glipizide. Anybody beating this thing?

Hi, signs of sweetness coming from your pores does that mean that you might have diabetes? because I’ve been tested and it says I do not but is there other tests to take. Thank you

Hey everyone. I have been chatting to a few of you and a common thread seems to be diet. What lifestyle changes have you had to make? What has been hard and how have you made it work?

Happy Easter all! And if you don’t do Easter or chocolate, happy Sunday! If you’re feeling low today, I want you to do something... Stop what you’re doing, get your walking shoes on, get some headphones in and go! Don’t think, don’t second guess, just walk! Somewhere open, somewhere blue & sunny! https://youtu.be/I6aR-v7i0lc Listen to this & simply exist for a minute or two! ♥️
