I was recently diagnosed with type 2 diabetes with a 6.7 A1C. I've been pre-diabetic for years. My primary doctor recommended medicine right away. I said I would prefer to use diet and exercise. She gave me a diabetic testing kit and ordered needles and strips and told me to take my glucose once a day before meals and keep a record for three month. I am due to go back to her early March. My glucose has always been in range so far. I am watching my carbs and sugar intake. Anyone else going through this as a pre-diabetic. Thanks. I am new to this community.
