Type 2 diabetes - page 4

What do I do now?

When I first addressed my diagnosis as a type 2 diabetic, I did not know a lot of this. I just wanted to get my blood glucose levels down. Over the years, I have learned a lot more, and I while I still have to always monitor my blood sugar levels, I have moved beyond that as the sole objective in my management of my disease. I have dropped my blood pressure to healthier levels than I ever had in many many years. I have dropped my blood cholesterol to healthier levels than in years and likely more than a decade. I am more active and happier than I had been for years. All of this is because I have chosen to take on my type 2 diabetes head-on and to reform my lifestyle and diet to combat it with every means possible to me - and most importantly thus far, without any medication.

I realize that I may never know the exact chemical, biological, psychological causes of my diabetes at the most basic level of what triggers the disease - but I do know many ways to live to fight it. I do know that in spite of knowing now that I am a type 2 diabetic, I am probably going to live a longer and better life because it has forced me to re-evaluate my way of living altogether. There is no greater motivator than the motivation to survive when threatened. Let that push you to change as it did me.
