Prayers sent I know very little about it except it a dangerous condition unless you manage it carefully.

I don't have diabetes, but my father has it to a minor degree. Checking blood sugar often, and watching your diet are of the utmost importance. I'd recommend working with your doctor to find a workout regimen that fits your lifestyle and blood sugar numbers.

Good luck and keep on keeping on.

2 tbs of Braggs organic apple cider vinegar (with the "Mother") mixed with a little water each morning & evening, ever day.... (Most walmarts, at least in Texas have it...) got me totally off the diabetes meds, to my doctor's disappointment.......).....   Heals a lot of other "chit" too....   Google it.....(http://authoritynutrition.com/6-proven-health-benefits-of-apple-cider-vinegar/)

People like to claim there's no "magic bullet" for Type 2.  There is.  Diet and exercise.  Lose the weight and your problem will take care of itself most of the time.  I'm living proof.

I have type 1.  These things that have worked well for me:
- No carbs until late afternoon or night.  This is counter to conventional wisdom but, in this case, conventional wisdom is wrong.  You're more sensitive to carbs in the morning.  Also, this is an easy way to limit your overall carb intake through the day.
- Naturally, resistance training.
- Sprint intervals on a bike with the resistance cranked up.  This will suck and you'll be sore but it'll burn off a lot of your glycogen stores.  Also, sprint intervals are more effective for weight loss than just walking or jogging.
- I don't know what sort of work you do but, especially if you're typically sedentary during the day, try to find time to walk during the afternoon or something (especially on days that you're not exercising).  I have a treadmill in the office so I'll just set it at a low speed and steep incline and walk while I read.  Seriously, I can easily do that for 45-60 minutes without realizing it and it makes an enormous difference in how I feel.

Luckily for you, type 2 is generally able to be corrected, as porkrinds noted above.  Just remember that type 2 diabetes is the result of insensitivity to insulin so basically, your goal is to increase sensitivity again.  The best way to do that is constantly being active.

This is exactly right, and this will also take care of high blood pressure and high cholesterol. You'll lose weight, too.

The key is "whole foods plant based" all the time. Never, ever drink calories, including fruit juice (with the exception of a little light beer  ;D.) Never eat any kind of flour, white rice, or pasta type products which are largely made out of flour. Don't eat sugar unless it is naturally occurring in a whole food, such as fruit.  Eat beans and true whole grains like brown rice, oat groats, hulled barley, and rye berries.  Lots of fresh vegetables.

Exercise 6 days/week.  You can control type 2 with lifestyle changes.  Good luck!

I've controlled my type two with meds, exercise, and diet.  I run three days a week.  On off days I do resistance workouts.  Sometimes as simple as squats, push ups, etc.  My diet, which was fine tuned by my dietician, has me consuming 200 G of protein a day and 90-120 carbs.  This evens out to about 50 protein per meal and 30-40 carbs.  I don't cut out anything, just portion it to the right amount of carbs. I supplement my protein with a good whey protein powder, and eat snacks high in protein to get my extra 50 grams per day.  My blood sugars are about 85-90 in the mornings with resting and my post meal blood sugars are around 120-130.   It's hard work, especially at first.  But you can control it with meds, diet, and exercise.  In fact, my doctor is considering taking me off my meds because of my strict diet and exercise and how well it's working.

that's dang good control, well done sir.  It's a devastating disease, so many things can happen if not kept in control.

Thanks dude. It's been an ongoing struggle. I figure I need to get it under control in my 30's because the longer you wait the harder it gets. Can't imagine doing it in my 40's. By then I'll just be in auto pilot mode with a healthy life style. It's definitely a permanent change for me.
