Diabetes Type 2 Experiences

Please share your experiences with Diabetes Type 2 with the community.

Go to www.mercola.com and enter “diabetes”, “leptin”, and “insulin” in the searchbar, and ensure that you understand their roles.
Consider signing up for their regular free Ezine, as they are the most visited natural health website in the world.
For diabetes type 2, you will probably be prescribed medications, such as Metformin.
Eat more in accordance with your “nutritional type” - 20 question quiz at http://naturalhealthcoach.com/tools or http://www.mercola.com - 27 questions; do both.
Develop a sensible diet for diabetes, minimising simple carbohydrates and sugars, and exercise regularly. Test your blood glucose levels often, at first, until you have your medication, diet, and exercise regime organised, then you can reduce it somewhat to regular, but less frequent spot checks.
Note that the information from Dr. Mercola is different from that at www.diabetes.com and probably differs from your doctor as well, but I strongly believe that it is the most helpful you will get.
View: http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2010/09/02/diabetes-most-of-what-youve-been-told-may-be-wrong.aspx I have type 2 diabetes, and take chromium supplements, (chromium nicotinate is probably best, but I take the less expensive chromium picolinate) cinnamon, (health food stores have empty capsules for this purpose, or make a thick paste with water, roll in dessicated coconut, etc. and swallow with natural youghurt) and a combination (vitamin, mineral, amino acid, herbs, etc. - 76 ingredients; all high quality) supplement* which have stabilised blood glucose levels, and enable a reduction in medications. Email me if interested* - they said it could reduce medication needs; I was skeptical at first, but am now convinced.
