    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!


    Yours in health,

    Being a diabetic doesn't always mean drastically changing everything you eat, or sacrificing the things you can't live without. But it does mean taking a closer look at sugars and carbohydrates. You'll want to start eating lots of different foods — including vegetables, whole grains, fruits, non-fat dairy foods, healthy fats, and lean meats or meat substitutes — but you'll eat them all in moderation.

    Michelle, I see this is your first post. Tell us about yourself. Do you have diabetes? What type and for how long? What you are recommending sounds very much like ADA guidelines that do not work for many people. I suspect that is why most people did not find your posting that helpful.

    This is a group of varied folks, with many different lifestyles and diets. Tell us about what works for you.

    Welcome.
