I am 51 years old and I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes on September 13, 2007. I am thankful to my doctor for scheduling a CDE to talk to me immediately. It was quite the eye opener and put me quickly on the right track.
I take 1000 mg of Metformin a day. I also take 10 mg of Lipitor and 5mg of Lisinipril daily. I keep a log of the foods I eat. This helps me watch my carb intake, per meal, as well as the total daily calories. I exercise at least three days a week. After 9 months, my A1C is 5.5 and all is well. Since that day, I have lost over 65 pounds. My goal is to control my diabetes to the best of my ability for as long as I can.
