I just wanted to say hi :wave: and my name is Jennifer, I found out I was diabetic 1 year ago on on Jan 1st I went to the doctor with bloodsugar of 550. I did not know I was diabetic. My doctor sent me to hospital to give me insulin to drop my bloodsugar now with metformin my bloodsugar runs 80 to 120 at the most and my A1C is 5.3 and I am down about 30 pounds. I wanted to join because I need to lose alot more weight and understand diabeties more. Does anybody have a certain diet plan they follow?

Welcome Jennifer!
as to what each of us does, just follow the chat threads and you will see that we are as diverse as any group can be. I think we believe that with testing, we can figure out what works for us safely. That way you can also find a way of eating that you can stick to. You are doing fabulously already, so just take that positive energy and keep going with it.
Keep coming, lurk or join in, and share!
