    Question Is anyone here diabetic???

    Just wondering if anyone here is diabetic. I found out a week ago that I'm borderline diabetic. Was put on a medication to control my blood sugar and trying to make changes to my diet. Could use some help in that area. Does anyone know of a good website to go to for research on this? I want to make sure I'm fully informed on the subject and know that I'm making the right choices. I'll have plenty of questions to ask my dr whenn I go back in 3 weeks. Thanks for any help that can be offered.

    Re: Is anyone here diabetic???

    I am genetucally predisposed to get diabetes but I don't have it, my doctor said that its just a matter of time before I do. My glucose level is on the high side. It runs rampid through out my Mom's side of the family.
    Jean was also diagnosed being very bordeline diabetic.

    I do know of a couple of good sites.
    www.diabetes.org
    www.diabetes.com
    www.cdc.gov/diabetes

    Best of luck to you Jazzy!

    Re: Is anyone here diabetic???

    Isn't Nottie diabetic? I could have sworn there was someone here who was. No better source of info than those who are facing/have faced the same diagnosis. My father-in-law was diabetic and had to control it with insulin, and my father was but had to control it with diet. So, I'm predisposed, but my son is practically out on the street begging for it.

    Hopefully, you can control yours through diet and not end up developing diabetes, but you still have to be very careful because some foods have ingredients that don't sound like they'd affect anything, but can be very hazardous nonetheless.

    Be careful until your doctor can do further testing, and ask so many questions that he gets sick of looking at you. Better to be informed than in a coma.

    You'd like to think so, wouldn't you?

    Re: Is anyone here diabetic???

    Yeah I am a diabetic. It runs in the family so it was only a matter of time. I was taking a couple of different medications to control my blood sugar, but they only worked for a little bit so as of last Oct. I started taking insulin injections twice a day and that is keeping my levels more consistent. Some days are a little high, but not like before. My doctor is pleased with the results since switching to insulin, but I need to lose some weight.

    Re: Is anyone here diabetic???

    I'm not diabetic, but I'm surrounded by them. My husband, mother, mother and father-in-law, cousins etc. My mom controls hers through diet, but everyone else is on insulin shots. My husband takes 3 shots a day to control his diabetes. Up to about six monthes ago, his sugar was out of control !!!! It got pretty scary for awhile. Because my mom has it, I have to check at least once every year to make sure I don't develop it also.
