This is My Story

First diagnosed T2 in 2005, I soon learned about the effectiveness of low carb diets from the on-line community and became dedicated to support through on-line communities.

When I was diagnosed T2 in 2005, the doctor simply told me my fasting blood sugar was over the limit and it had been that way for the last couple of years. When he ran my A1c it came back at 8%, not bad in the scope of things, but I had diabetes. He promptly gave me a prescription for metformin and told me that I was “fixed.” Boy was he wrong. So started my journey into the medical morass of diabetes care.
