How many of my fellow FTF members are diabetic?

I'm Type 2 insulin dependent

Daoust_Nat 12-29-2012 07:20 PM

I am type 2 non insulin

My Dad is Type 2 and my Uncle was Type 1 insulin dependent. I keep an eye on my sugar. So far so good. You all take care of yourselves, especially Type 2, because it's easier to manage.

Type 2, non-insulin (yet).

Not sure what type. Onset in my late 50s and I take Metformin orally, no insulin. Have to check my blood sugar and watch my sugar and carbohydrate intake, but get to cheat from time to time. It's been good in a way, I'm finally losing weight.

Type 2, non insulin for me. Treating it with a couple of pills a day. My sugars are good as long as I keep moving some.

I've always been insulin dependent

My A1c is currently 6.5 anything under a 7 is considered to have your diabetes under control. Mine at one time was 11 but thanks to a caring doctor at the VA we've gotten it down to where it is now.

shoot up 3x a day...still out of control.

JSStryker 12-29-2012 10:58 PM

Stay with it bluz, if I can get mine under control I have faith you will too!

I take 3 shots of Novalog a day and 2 shots of Lantus a day plus 3 metformin pills a day.
