Hi everyone! I was recently (6 mths ago) diagnosed w/ type 2. My family is not very supportive with helping me with the diabetes. They bring snacks, etc into the house and when my husband cooks for me, it's always fried foods. This year I decided to take matters into my own hands and do my own food. The problem is I've been eating oatmeal for breakfast and a few eggs, but Lean Cuisine for lunch and dinner. I was told that a lot of carbs were not good for diabetics. I'm tracking my carbs since I went on a diet and I cannot get them down. I've lost a few pounds and have started walking, but I don't know if it's going to do any good. Can someone let me know if they've run into this type of situation and what did you do?View Thread
Did taking it once a day stop the nausea and diarrhea? I've been put on Metformin (750) twice a day and it makes me super sick to my stomach! I wasn't told to work up to it. I know I need to take it because my levels are out of control (217 upon waking and in the 300's during the day).View Thread
