So this week, I received news that I have Type 2 Diabetes. Although a serious diagnosis, I know that I will be okay. Right now, I am only monitoring my blood sugars twice a day, and controlling my diet. I will see the doctor in about a month to follow up and see if it is necessary to be put on medications.
I am not entirely surprised by this diagnosis as I had gestational diabetes with both my pregnancies, and during my last one, I was insulin dependent. Also, I have family history of diabetes.
I am asking you, my readers to pray for me as I make changes to my diet, which was not all that bad to begin with, but I am a carb lover, so I need to make some tweets in my diet for sure:)
Also, pray that my sugars will lower....I am seeing slightly lower numbers, but still above normal, and its only been two days since I have been checking my sugars but its still frustrating when I have been careful with what I am eating. I have been exercising daily on my Wii Fit Plus, and once it warms up outside, I will be planning to go running more too!
Also, if you have any ideas for meals, etc please feel free to let me know, I will take any advice I can get.
