Thank you flute. Will try to drink more and eat a little less to see what happen. I have been doing my exercises (running around the house weight...for 40 minutes/day) at home with the fan and air conditioning on to keep me cool. Could not go out to the local YMCA or anything outdoor any more.View Thread
I completely agreed with you about the lax of the new guidelines. I have been following this community on discussion but did not participate due to the problem with loging on. Since diagnosed in 2000, I have been using the "exercise and diet" route to control my diabetes without using any drugs. My last check up in May, my A1c was 5.8 and my FBG was 104. This FBG was always my problem that I could not bring it down to 80's. Especially now that the weather is so hot, it has been in the 110's range for the last 2 1/2 weeks. I wondered if anyone has the same problem with the heat like I do. KieubView Thread
