i am not happy
Dang, sorry to hear that James....You're in my thoughts and prayers.
Not good. You know there are people who are keeping their diabetes well under control (some say even cured) by eating a proper diet. Mainly a proper raw diet. You could try it.
Bro. James, I'm sorry to hear this. I trust you are seriously considering changing your diet (as Largo suggested). It runs heavy on my father's side, so I had to make some serious changes to what I eat and how I cook. I see too many of our people suffering from this disease, of which can be managed and overcome, if you're willing to change some things.
Please keep us posted with updates of your progress!
Welcome to the club.
If you are type 2, in addidtion to going meatless try to walk an extra 30+ minutes a day, and more if possible.
It is important to self-monitor at least 3 times a day unil you learn your body's internal clock.
Sorry to say but I will share something the doctors may not have mentioned. As Black men in particular age we tend to develop higher rates of prostate (as well as pancreatic) cancer, in addition to diabetes. This means going to the bathroom more often, especially in cold temperature. Therefore, drinking plenty of WATER is required not only to prevent dehydration but also to get your body used to water instead of drinking soft drinks or anything with sugar/high fructose corn syrup. Even some fruit juices can shoot high your glycemic index.
Peace, fo real!
Note: Get that prostate checked.....regularly.
Greetings, Elder James.
Well, that stinks. But how bad is it really, a change in diet is, as far as I know, all it takes to fix that? Stay healthy, Uncle, something like this can't sink your boat!
my mother was diagnosed about a year ago.. she manages it today through diet..
she dropped over 80 pounds by sticking to the diet they gave her.. change is
always difficult but it's not impossible.. long as you dont give up.
You're in my prayers as well; and I hope this is helpful to you, Brother James.
Watch the whole thing Bro. James.
thanks to everybody.....
