"I asked my doctor about it and he said, "It doesn't matter what the lab says, anything over 100 is "glucose impaired". Cut carbs out of your diet!" intercst

Every year my blood glucose level would inch up a little bit. 111, 116, 123, then last year 146. I knew what that meant. Also my A1C went from 6.0 to 6.7. I knew the good times were over. Always before my doctor would circle my blood glucose and tell me I was prediabetic and tell me to cut back on carbs but in my mind I'd think "pre-diabetic?" "Pre" means before and to my way of thinking everyone is "prediabetic?" So what? As long as I stayed pre diabetic I didn't worry about it.

It was when I had crossed the line and was declared full blown diabetic it scared me enough to try and cut way back on the carbs and sugar. I knew what I had to do, I just didn't give a shite enough to try. I just don't want to die of diabetes because diabetes sucks. Pure and simple. It's not dying or being death that scares me, it's how long it takes and how painful that I worry about. Personally I'd like to fall face down into a plate of spaghetti that sounds good to me.
