Jam, just want to say that you are so correct when you say "easiest" (for those who can still do it) is movement. Any type of movement. Does not matter. Some of us can stick to a strict daily regimen or some sort of organized exercise. Others cannot.
All said, just MOVE!!! I have eliminated insulin injections at lunchtime because my job requires me to move constantly for three hours at a time, five days a week. At first, I thought, can I really keep this up? Yep, I can. Muscles hurt, but they get stronger. One day at a time. If you think you cannot go one other step, put one foot in front of the other and DO IT. Now it's done.
I've repeated this over and over and some are probably sick of seeing this. My A1C at diagnosis was 13.2. Not unheard of, but truly ugly. Now I am at 5.7. The physical activity has helped tremendously.
For those of you who can move, please do so. You will keep yourself healthy and sane.View Thread
Very cool, Lucy. It can be difficult for anyone who thinks medical i.d.'s are dorky. I know myself that I would never have worn one until now. I always thought they were dorky whether it be a necklace, bracelet, etc. I like the site you mentioned.
Here is where I got mine from: www.n-styleid.com . They have such an assortment I never investigated before from beaded, chain, bangles, charms, sports, woven, leather, etc.View Thread
