If you are reading this you are probably like myself and have been diagnosed with type2 diabetes. We are not alone did you know there is someone diagnosed every 23 seconds with this condition. I like to call it a condition instead of a disease but it probably should be called a symptom because in most cases it is caused by our own actions. Here I hope you will gain some understanding on this condition and hopefully some solutions. Yeah that’s me with the grand kids for Halloween after all they are what’s its all about. Right?
Hello my name is Mark and for me it started somewhere around July 2013 I stared to lose weight. Now my weight has always fluctuated 10 lbs up or down so at first I didn’t think much of it but at the time I was a little heavier than normal so it was fine that I was losing more weight. But then something happened.
As the weeks and months went by I kept losing weight without trying, after about 6 months I had lost 50 lbs which was great at first. I felt great but I knew something wasn’t right. So I scheduled an appointment with my doctor and he did a blood test which came back with you guessed it a high A1c it was 8.9. So the doctor gave me the standard prescription and sent me on my way. Does this sound familiar?
Whenever I have a problem I tend to over research it for causes and solutions and when I do this I like to share my findings with people. I find that I meet people every day with the same problems that I have and want share what I have learned and hope to learn more from them as well.
