Thanks for your observations. I am sorry to hear that you have been diagnosed with diabetes. I'm not sure what the name you gave it means, but I am guessing that you are talking about some permutation of Type 2 diabetes.
I recall how I felt when I was diagnosed with Type 2 -- not sure exactly when that was, but it's within the past 10 years.
I was totally blindsided by the diagnosis, no one in my family has it, so I never expected it to be something I had to be concerned with. The diagnosis came about a week before we we leaving on a cruise, and my first inclination was that I had absolutely no idea what I'd be able to eat during the trip.
The dietician I had called to make an appointment for counseling told me to simply go on the trip and eat whatever I felt like -- that waiting 2 weeks for us to meet would ahve no impact on me, long term.
I ran into someone on the ship who ate at our table, who had been diagnosed within the past year, and he really helped me to calm down about the whole thing.
And, thankfully, my situation is pretty mild, so I don't have to count every carb anymore. I've got my eating system down, it works, and my fasting blood sugar number is generally no higher than 102 these days. When I go quarterly for a diabetes consult with my doctor, which I do quarterly, my A1C numbers are always very low, and my doctor tells me she wishes all her diabetic patients could manage as well as I do.
So good luck to you, and hopefully you will also sail through this disease with ease, once you get the diet stuff worked out.
Of course, Type 2 diabetes is considered almost epidemic right now, and I just read an interesting article that suggests products which contain a substance known as phthalates -- something found in nail polish and body lotions -- may also be causing diabetes. Weird I know, but here's the article.
