My Story:
I was diagnosed with diabetes in March of 2007. Ever since then I've been slowly losing weight, exercising and eating as healthy as I can. I am currently on 500 mg. metformin twice a day and 10 mcg. of Byetta twice a day. I hope to get off all diabetes medications as I get closer to an ideal weight for myself. I thoroughly enjoy interacting with people here on WebMd and I really like sharing and learning with the other people here. I can most often be found on the diabetes exchange, the Heart Health Fuhrman Ornish exchange and the Hepatitis exchange.

My ex-husband and I used to make Miso Soup. It had seaweed in it. It was pretty good.
