Anyway, I was just diagnosed back on April 6. Saw a dietitian the day before yesterday. I was a little surpised at some the foods I am still allowed to eat, but boy those portions size are gonna kill me. Though, I guess they are actually supposed to help keep me alive.

The key to good blood sugar control is a combination of medicine, diet, and exercise.

Just don't do what I did. I got so discouraged by the limitations, I stopped caring for myself for a few years. Do the best you can but don't feel like your days of enjoying food are over. They aren't.
