Hi! I'm new here:) I have type 2 diabetes, diagnosed in 2005 (Oct). I am currently on Humulin R and Humulin N. I am obese so I am working towards losing weight to help manage the diabetes even more. I am just looking for others who have diabetes and understand the daily lifetime struggle of having it, the challenges and all.

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!
