and when your little boy grows up, imagine how proud he is going to be of his Dad!!!!!!
Great story well done enjoy your pizza
I admire your honesty, willpower and optimism. I hope, in spite of diabetic abuse, that you have luck on your side from now on.
I have some idea of how you feel. I was diagnosed as pre type 2 diabetes some years ago and warned to change my lifestyle - but I've been burying my head in the sand and still haven't come to terms with having to make permanent changes to my eating habits.
It is notoriously difficult to wean ourselves off bad habits and face up to what needs to be done. Yours is a magnificent achievement. Here's wishing you continued good health for the future.
It's great to learn from the past.
I went through the same teenage angst and diabetic grief. It took me far too long to realize what I was doing to myself, but I did learn.
And that's where I stand today. I try very hard not to look back with regret and shame. It doesn't serve me; it's depressing. I have to look forward remembering the past and accepting it. I'll do better; I'm doing the right things now; I'll keep trying. I am not the sum total of my mistakes. Besides, regretting the past makes my blood sugar go up (or so I tell myself) LOL.
There is such a thing as diabetic grief, and I think we all go through it. Changing your lifestyle is a snap-your-fingers effort; it's tough. You will get there, I believe in you. I hope you get there much sooner than I did.
Excellent news congratulations to this success story. I don't know if your medication? metformin or other, if your NOT, then this result is even more excellent to congratulate yourself, as your own body has done this with self motivation, however, sorry to but a damper on the good results, if this is due to medications, keep in mind, medications show false results, as its the medications that have brought down the levels and not your own body naturally, keep this in mind!!!
whatever, with or without you have reduced that's the importance.
Do remember that he is type 1, therefore it is definitely not as a result of his body doing it naturally, his body can't do it naturally, it is due to regular testing, and talking the right amount of insulin when required (and a lot of hard work) - and he has done an awesome job of getting it all sorted.
Hi There @pollensa Up until this weekend I have been on Lantus and NovoRapid since 2004, so I absolutely REFUSE to accept your damper!
On another note, I was in Pollensa in the summer - lovely place!
Thanks @Rokaab !
Jeremy_Wood is a type 1 diabetic who will always need insulin in order to stay alive.
It is type 2 diabetics who may respond to dietary changes and reduce or remove their medications - depending on individual circumstances. In addition, medications do not give 'false results'. Results are results whether the patient is on medication or not.
I just wanted to say what an awesome result that is! What an achievement!!!
Amazing well done. Although I am type 2 - I do really admire those who have to use insulin and all that involves, so well done and keep up the good work.
I’m so happy for you mate!
Don’t let this dreadful disease defeat us in anyway!
I hope this helps to get back on track -
Well done mate and keep up the good work!
Ah, I'm on insulin, so I can get away with carby treats as long as I don't overdo it. So I really admire type two's who manage their blood sugar with only diet and maybe tablets! Seems much harder to me.
That is awesome mate. Kids change your life a lot right! Keep it up. Don't focus too much on the hba1c. But take it day by day, celebrate the good days bit don't fret over the bad ones.
Wishing you well.
