June.....life with diabetes wont be too much easier than it is for you using 2 injections per day and eating food in sensible amounts throughout the day. By eating food in sensible qtys, you may well be able to bypass the many other diseases like colon cancer which sadly is increasing partly due to weightgain. Years ago, the diabetic diet was thought to be the best way of living and that is still the same in todays world. So come on....cheer up.....you dont have to count the carb in yr food gram for gram.....there is a bit of forgiveness but as long as you test yr bg about 4 times per day, you can just adjust the food a bit if you need to. Yes, there will be some hypos and some might catch you unaware but we all make mistakes in life and just get on doing all the things that we want to do.
