Summary:

I have known for years that I was at risk for diabetes, since my mother passed away just about two years after being diagnosed, she was at the age I am now.

About five months ago I was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes, with a blood glucose level of 250. I have known for years that I was at risk for diabetes, since my mother passed away just about two years after being diagnosed, she was at the age I am now.

I was 124 pounds overweight, with high cholesterol of 254. Now at five months later I have a fasting blood suger level around 98 and, at my last doctors visit, a cholesterol level of 204. I have lost about 50 pounds and feeling so much better. I go to see the doctor again next month to have my A1C test done. If everything looks good, there is a good possibility that I can be taken off of my medication.
