I just got the call, "you are a diabetic" the nurse scared me to death. After being persistent I was able to see my doctor this morning he expained that I am at the early stages. He said on a scale of 1 to 10 I am a .50. I did the fast test and it came in a little high. I picked up my test kit this morning, I am to test my self every morning untill January the 29th, then go back for a Doctor visit. He has me signed up for an education class in a few weeks at our local hospital. I am 49 and went in for a routine, pre 50, check up. He thinks with proper diet and exercise that my diabetes will be manageable. I am 6'2" 260lbs. and amvery active. My passion is cooking, eating and enjoying family and friends. I have spend and hour or so looking at all the information you have provided. I appreciate all your hard work and your obvious concerne for other people. I am from Alabama would like to Thank you. My biggest concerne, is coming up with a meal plan and how to still be able to drink wine, beer and alcohal sociably. Any advise would be greatfull. Call Bob!!

G'day Bob

Nice to meet you. I think you can test a little more often than your doc recommends. Take his suggestions as a minimum, not a maximum, and read my page titled "Test, Review, Adjust".

I think you'll like "Red, Red, Wine" on this page too.

Cheers, Alan

hi, my boyfriend has type 2 diabetes and was recently diagnosed. He is a powerlifter (lifts tons of weight and competes), he is 47. He is always tired and exhausted and needs tons of sleep and i'm not sure if this is related to his low-carb diet (resulting from his recent diagnosis) or side effect from his medication. any thoughts?

It's not really possible to diagnose the cause of his fatigue form that description, nor am I qualified to do so. He really should discuss that with his doctor.

However, one of my own symptoms when my blood glucose levels were high after meals was lethargy and drowsiness. It certainly would not hurt him to do some extra testing to see what is happening. As well as suggestihng he see his doc, ask him to read http://loraldiabetes.blogspot.com/2006/10/test-review-adjust.html
