I’ve been a diabetic since 2004 and diabetes runs on both sides of my family so I am very aware of Diabetes. It is always fun and games until you’re getting a foot or leg amputated. Don’t be that person. Learn to read labels and count not just calories but Carbohydrates. Listen to your doctors and take your meds as prescribed. Eat right and live right. Eat proper helpings and limit sugar intake while living an active life going to the gym or taking walks around your house or down the road. The longer your A1C stays 7.0 the more damage it does to your organs (i.e. Liver, Kidneys Eyes, Heart etc.) So it is imperative that you eat smart and live right. Only you can do that. Good luck to you.
