Ok, I read through this whole thread and Jeannie once again hit the nail right on the head. In most cases you don't get diabetes because of a sloppy lifestyle or this thing or that thing that if you didn't do your wouldn't have, or that can be fixed!!!
Diabetes means something is broken, and for the most part irreparable. So what are you going to do. How badly broken depends on what you can do to run on "normal" . I'll use the example of my 85 year old relative that has no health problems whatsoever. He eats his chocolate cake with ice cream, gets an average amount of exercise for someone his age, and has absolutely NO SUGAR problems. He can max out on sweets and like magic, his blood sugar is always back to normal in short order. I use this example because he is NORMAL...we are BROKEN. No matter what we do with exercise or diet, we are never going to have is unmedicated, normal response to cookies and milk!!!
