Hi everyone and welcome to Life Is Better Today.
I have been a Type 2 diabetic for about 3 years now. Doctors, medications, and watching what I eat have been very helpful. A few years ago when I had my blood sugar count taken, it was 158 ( about 3 hours after I ate lunch). Of course, the doctor stated that was a little high, even just a few hours after a meal. After being prescribed Glipizide for about 1-1/2 years now, my counts usually average about 110 to 120 while my A1C is presently at 6.8 (an acceptable range).
People with diabetes need support
Supporting “people with diabetes” is very important. One way to support a diabetic is to call him or her “a person with diabetes” because they usually do not prefer to be called a “diabetic”. Another way to support “people with diabetes” is to not label or judge them. Regular physical activity, enjoying a very healthy diet, and listening to your doctor are very helpful methods in coping with diabetes.
Acceptance is Important
What is important that a “person with diabetes” is ACCEPTED positively, not because they have been diagnosed with some horrible disease.
Thank you for coming to my website. Also, please check out my other posts on this website concerning many aspects of diabetes.
All the best,
