I come from a family of skinny “old age” type 2 (or 1.5?) diabetics. As I approach my 6th decade, my blood sugar has started to creep up and my doctor told me to get my A1c numbers down! I bought my first glucometer and used the following two resources to understand just how to fight this blood sugar condition. 1) 2007 & 2011 editions of Dr. Bernstein’s Diabetes Solution (he is a type 1) 2) Blood Sugar 101 by Jenny Ruhl (she is a type 1.5 or 2….see www.phlaunt.com/diabetes/ )
I dropped my A1c from 5.9 to 5.7 in 8 weeks and my doctor is pleased. I eat to my meter and do weight training and, so far, I do not take any diabetes meds. Hope this helps someone.
