You will find that Spark People is the place to go for education on foods. They will set you a diet that is geared for the T2 diabetic. There is a tracker where you can record your foods and also see the nutrients that you have had for the day.

You will also have encouragers that will give you the encouragement you need to help and hold you accountable to stay on track.

Hi, I've also recently been diagnosed with T2 diabetes. I'm half-lucky (kind of??) because my dad also has T2, so he and my mom are supporting me in preventing having to take medication of any kind. Have you checked with your hospital/medical clinic to see if they have a diabetic education class you can attend or any support groups in your area? I've been to one class so far and it is already very helpful! I'm not sure how insurance works, but I have crappy insurance and it's covered, so I don't have to worry about paying for it! A great resource I found for finding meals is pinterest, just search "low-carb meals" and you have a bunch of recipes available to you!

Welcome!

Courtney

I just found out for sure that I have diabetes, after quite a while of suspecting that I was. I'm hoping it's the kick in the pants I needed to get more active and eat healthier. I've joined the site in search of information and the tracking tools.
