Yes, Iwas dx'd with diabete 1998. And going and seeing your dr and nurse is very important. The nurse with explain things to you and be there for whatever question you have.

Re: I do have diabetes

My son, age 22 was diagnosed with type I diabetes this summer. It can't be controlled by either diet or pills....he doesn't produce insulin and has to take insulin forever.

Sounds like you have type II. Movin Slo is correct to listen to the doc & nurses because you need to stay on top of it to keep away from the complications. There are many books available, and the "for dummies" book is quite good.

If you are offered classes, make sure to go. They do a great job explaining things.

Diabetes is quite do-able. You will learn what to do and after awhile, it is second nature. Like fibro, you have to listen to your body and be alert to how to treat your diabetes.
