diabetes support group??

Posted Friday, May 4, 2012, at 2:08 PM

Well, I have not posted in forever! I have had quite a bit going on, with my mom's death and taking care of her estate stuff. My health has been bothering me for around five years. Various tests were done, maybe thyroid, maybe sleep apnea.. yada yada.. but when we switched PCP's for our new insurance plan, the new doc really took to testing me.

I have found out I am type 2 diabetic. I have been going to Weight Watchers and lost weight, but the doc has given me a weight/diet plan , Low carb (yukk) and I am wondering... Is there a support group here in Bedford County where I can get some wisdom?

I would love to be able to get some good tips, recipes and such. I know there are some wise folks out there.

help me out!

I believe this is correct. I also believe this is the kind of plan that we are likley to end up with, though somewhat less generous as it will be forced on us by our creditors who won't give a hair about healthcare for seniors and the needy. Read "Penny Health" articles if you dont have insurance.

Unfortunately I could not attend the seminar as I had responsibilities at the Symphony performance. It is overwhelming to try to change your lifestyle. It's still a work in progress for me. Your doctor can refer you to a dietitian for a consult and my insurance paid so you might want to check that out. The one-on-one considers your particular food likes and dislikes. Lots of information is available on Web MD and Mayo Clinic websites and others. I am a bit hesitant to take much info from their chat groups. I really check the source of any suggestions I read on the internet.
