How would you know if your having symptoms
Jump to this post
@trellg132 If you are borderline diabetic, now is the time to start being careful with diet. It doesn't take much to throw you into the diabetes pit! I had no symptoms and had a regular blood profile, and the next thing I knew I had a letter from my PCP saying, "You are a diabetic!" I had no idea. But that was a little over three years ago, and I fight the battle every day with blood sugar and everything else that goes along with this disease. Now is the time to read about diabetes and be careful about diet and be sure to stay active. Does you doctor want you to check your blood numbers or just wait and see? It's a tricky situation. You certainly don't want to go over the line into full blown diabetes. Reading and research can help you know what will work for you. Since your family has diabetes, can you get information from them?
I've cut out a lot of things like no soda junk food I walk every day cut back pasta bread
I've lost 20 lbs so far
@trellg132 You are on the right track. Good for you.
