Jan 11, 2012 · Temporary diabetes? in Just Want to Talk

I am a type 2 diet controlled diabetic. As long as I exercise, watch my carbs (mainly sugar and bread) I keep mine down. If your early morning sugar is never high, you will be fine if you watch what you eat. Everyone’s sugar goes up some after eating. If you fast and go in early and have an A1C test, it will show what your sugar average has been for the past few months. That is the most important thing to know. As long as it is normal, you will be fine. If it is just a little high, then you need to watch your carbs. If it is really high (which I doubt) you will need to see a dietician.

I think going to Mayo is a great idea or at least another Neurologist. Perferably one that specializes in MS because they know more about TM.
