Diabetes *****! Are you newly diagnosed? Insulin or pills? Do you test your sugar at home? 113 is not TOO bad. Hang in there and I'm here if you have questions or just want to vent.

Good for you!!!  Many people don't address it until diet and exercise no longer work.  113 is getting right back to where you need to be.....I think no greater than 99 is the goal~

Hi Scotty
I'm sorry too you've been diagnosed with diabetes. I wonder if you had just a 1 hour glucose tolerance test of a 3 hour one as well. I know for me my 1 hour test was 50 points above normal and my 3 hour one turned out ok. I had asked my doctor if cinnamon tablets were ok for me to take with the baby and he said yes. It's supposed to be a natural way to help lower your blood sugar levels but it takes about 3 weeks to work. You may want to ask if it would be ok for you to try since 113 isn't crazy high. You can get them at health food stores, vitamin shops or online thru Amazon. If you have any questions I would be happy to try and help you.
