  • RE: Found out I have diabetes

    The glucose machine is helpful. This way you can check your levels at different times of the day to see if you need to make changes in your lifestyle. My doctor has told me to check twice a day. Some insurance will cover the cost of both the machine and strips. The machine is not expensive but the strips usually are. Your doctor should be checking your A1C which will give them your 3 month average of your glucose readings.

    RE: Found out I have diabetes

    Yes the Metformin 500 is also my medication three times a day and yes check the blood sugar everyday morning before eating.
    Forget sugar and use Stevia cristals, ut's fine .
    I make by myself whole grain brad and bisquits and mostly walk 1/2 hour a day in medium velocity.
    My sugar blood is now stable at a border limit to diabet situation.
