    I never have to step put of the box to refer your blog to the TUDiabetes blog page for the week of May 16, 2016.

  2. So much of what you said sounds familiar! Its a weird thing to get to know yourself again after diagnosis. I find that those I meet after being diagnosed are better with my diabetes than those I knew beforehand. I guess there was no adjustment for them.

    I love your raw, honest writing style. Will definitely be signing up to the email notifications.

  3. Love this Frank! I always wanted to manage my own diabetes even though I grew up with my father having type 1 as well. I identified with so much in your post today. Thank you for sharing.

  4. We can reverse diabetes through exercise and healthy eating. I actually read an article about diabetes curing diet and it seemed like the person had great success so I gave it a try. I couldn’t have been more excited about the results, as I am now 50 pounds lighter than when I first started using it. The article was very helpful to me — if you want to check it out yourself you can read it here http://curediabetespro.gq/

  5. It took me years, and in fact I still have moments, where I don’t want to talk about my diabetes. My numbers and why (if I know) they are what they are is still very private to me. This is a great post!

  6. Great description of the balance that is possible between talking about diabetes but still retaining your privacy around specific numbers and situations. This can be a scary balance for people to try to find but so important.

  7. I can identify with having another life before Diabetes although I had many more years before D than you. I’m glad you made the leap into the DOC. Keep up the great posts!

    I was diagnosed with type 2 Diabetes and put on Metformin on June 26th, 2014. I started the ADA diet and followed it 100% for a few weeks and could not get my blood sugar to go below 140. Finally i began to panic and called my doctor, he told me to get used to it. He said I would be on metformin my whole life and eventually insulin. At that point i knew something wasn’t right and began to do a lot of research. On April 13th I found a blog http://www.mydiabetesday.com/i-finally-reversed-my-diabetes/ I read the that article from end to end that night because everything the writer was saying made absolute sense. I started the diet that day and the next morning my blood sugar was down to 100, the next day was in the 90’s and now i have a fasting blood sugar between Mid 70’s and the 80’s. My doctor took me off the metformin after just one week of being on this lifestyle change. I have lost over 30 pounds in a month. I now work out twice a day and still have tons of energy. I have lost 6+ inches around my waist and I am off my high blood pressure medication too. I have about 20 more pounds to go till my body finds its ideal weight. The great news is, this is a lifestyle I can live with, it makes sense and it works. God Bless the writer. I wish the ADA would stop enabling consumers and tell them the truth. You can get off the drugs, you can help yourself, but you have to have a correct lifestyle and diet. No more processed foods.
