Welcome @jeannetta. My name is Carol and I am a Type 2 Diabetic. I was diagnosed in 2016, but did not want to take any meds if I could control the disease with diet and exercise. I knew absolutely nothing about Diabetes, so I researched and ordered books to educate myself. As a retired teacher, I also found Mayo Connect and started asking questions of the members and mentors. I found out quickly that every Diabetic is different. There are very few common factors that fit everyone. It's not as if every diabetic can take a pill three times a day and everything will be fine. Every factor makes a difference, from the temperature outside, to food choices to how much sleep a person gets, and on and on infinitum. I was okay without any meds until about six months ago—maybe longer. But I started having other non-diabetic problems, so I lost control of my diabetes. As things are with the virus, I am not eating the right foods and have had other situations so exercising is not possible. There are two things I would recommend if you can do them. First, see your endocrinologist so that he can run the panels needed to know if different areas are not in normal range. The second is to see a dietician and get menus for a diabetic. Anything else that works for another person may not work for you. Just remember the endocrinologist and the dietician to start getting some answers that allow you to feel better.
