I found out about a month ago that I have type 2 diabetes. So now I am thrown into a world that i know hardly anything about? I have to check my levels 6x's a day, which to be honest my finger is starting to get sore already, as I have been using the same one cause its the easiest one. So this morning I was 249 and that is because I did the dreaded bowl of icecream in the middle of the night. I was told to lay of my Dr pepper's and although I have cut down a lot and I tried the diet (ick) I still drink a few. I just feel like I am not getting with the program and I am not real sure why I am balking at it? I am on medication MetaFormin which I take 2x's daily and for the most part I have been doing okay taking that. I was told to exercise everyday for at least 30 minutes and well lets just say its been only a day that I missed that, which for me is awesome. I noticed that when i took my level after walking for a 1/2 hour it was at 99 which is where it should be. So okay when I don't exercise and I eat ice cream it shoot's way up to high 200's. When I do what I am supposed to be doing I am at 99. So knowing this it seems it would be a no brainer on what to do, but yet I kick & scream at every turn. I was told I needed to treat fiber and protein as my friend. I guess I just want to hear from others who are or have been having these or any problems with it? I know I am really new in this disease and I need to read up on it cause other than being able to spell it I am not real sure I get what is going on with my body? I know it has something to do with my sugar levels and my pancreas(sp) So let me know how you deal with it or how you don't deal with it. Remember though if you can't be kind don't bother. Peace & Blessings
