I take 50/1000 and in addition, I have to use Prandin with every meal to keep my blood sugar below. diabetes is now affecting my feet, I have numbness in several places.
I don't want to become insulin dependant, but what other choices do I have left?

I have studied and researched and the only conclusion I can come to is that exercise is the only additional effort that I can take that will "for sure" reduce my blood sugar level and that is only exercise on a regular basis...daily for at least 30 minutes to an hour.

This is a tuff one. My father in law just got diagnosed with early diabetes. We took my blood sugar it was at 100. He is being very careful with what he eats and he has averaged 112 the first month. It's serious stuff. Now to a more somber note my other friend takes what you have prescribed to take. He totally neglects himself and last year they had to amputate his left leg at the knee. It's a pretty simple answer watch your diet, blood sugar and what ever you do don't end up like tomy!
