Has been quite a while since I put a post on here but thought I would let everyone know that I am doing good. My last A1C was 5.7. I started exercising and really watching what I eat and I do not even have to take pills....for now. The only "real problem" is my arthritis. And the darn thing is in my neck. Seriously, I have been told that one day that I would have to start the insulin shots but as long as I can do what I am doing now, I can keep it under control. Well, going to finish reading on here to check up on everyone. Have a good day everyone, and don't forget to vote!!

Hi there and welcome back!

It sounds like you are doing great - congrats on your healthy eating and exercise and avoid insulin!

I'm sorry about your arthritis in your neck...hoping you have found some way to increase mobility and avoid pain. Aches and pains - no fun

I'm voting with my husband after he gets home from work tonight - my 7 year old and 4 year old daughter will walk to the polling place with us. I've never missed voting since I turned legal!

Congrats on your successs, thus far, alliej0225. I believe, as do you, that with the proper lifestyle changes and weight loss, if needed, Type 2 diabetes can be quite controllable without the use of drugs. I think you and your doctor are doing an excellent job in keeping you healthy and safe. Good post.
