... Drs. are not much help, and I just inject insilin when my monitor tells me to, but oh do I feel like crap all the time. I really only eat once a day and I'm sure that can't be good, but just not hungry. I guess my ques is what do I do? Noone has ever really talked to me about how to control my diabetes. Help please
My mom has type 2 diabetes and it really helped her to go to a dietician/nutriounist that specialized in diabetic care. She also went to a free 3 or 4 week class that was offered at the local hospital. Her nutrionist was covered by insurance but if your incuranse doesn't cover it I believe a median cost is 75-100 dollars. Not cheap but not terrible if you can affford it for 1 or 2 times just to get some education about your illness. She is doing a fabulous job and used to be a horrible eater. I'm really proud of her. Diet was definetly the key. You still need carbs but it's a balance. I also know there are a ton of books on the subject. Keep the faith that you can manage your diabetes. A little education goes a long way. Hope this helped a little. Good luck. - Mel
