Hey Meowee: I am sorry to hear about your readings! Mine were high by normal standards, but not for me. This morning I was 189. Two weeks ago when I went to the doctor and was diagnosed I was in the 400's. So it can only get better.

I am hoping that by losing weight (my goal is to lose 150lbs) I will be able to cotrol this disease without the yucky metformin.

How often does the doctor recommend you exercise if you're diabetic? I have been doing it every day, I think that may be the concensus.

It's getting a little bit better every day, but I am still depressed that I am going to have this disease for the rest of my life.
