i'm ok on my fm but really new to the treatment of my diabetes. i welcome any help at all and hope to be able to provide a little. I don't know if it will work or even if i should but for the first week i'm going to try to modify my current diet to see where my numbers fall.
if this isn't a good approach please let me know. i'm truly in the dark here
thanks for the meter tip. warren has been giving me some really good pointers too. i had been going thru threads trying to see what everyone was using. I don't have ins. so will probably go with the one you suggested. been really sick lately so may get out this weekend to get meter so as to begin the testing.
i'm really sending myself into a panic over the finger prick. last time i did it it really hurt for a while of course that was a long time ago. does it hurt you that bad. the site of my blood kinda does something to me too. i guess i'll get use to both issues
how did you learn about the numbers and the levels? is the meter hard to use? sorry i know i'm just panicing i feel really overwhelmed.

You can usually buy a meter at most drugs stores or at the pharmacy in walmart or costco, etc. The strips are where they get you, they are soooo expensive. They should give the meters away for what they make on the strips! Let us know when you get your meter and we'll take it from there with more hints and suggestions for you
