Hi Angel Star,
You have definitely come to the right place for support! I was just diagnosed in April, and I've found a lot of good advice, support and friendship here. I don't know what my numbers would be without the help I've found here! My last blood test was way down from when I was diagnosed and I've lost some weight too ! I've been trying to stick to a low carb diet (mainly staying away from potatoes, pasta, corn, sweets, etc.) as recommended by many members here. It's made a big difference. I still have a long way to go, but I'm headed in the right direction. I know that you will love this forum too! Welcome and I hope you stay with us!
