Welcome to HealingWell, Anna Becker! Your story is very similar to mine. I also did a lot of research (still do) and can keep my blood sugar in 'normal' ranges (real
normal, not what the ADA suggests) as long as I stay very low carb and have regular exercise. I am on metformin, too, although even with this I don't eat any pure carbs. There are plenty of carbs in good old vegetables.
So, I'm glad you found us. Feel free to start a new topic for yourself!
