    yea that sucks ass man... What type is it? I know a few people with diffrent types. My uncle is on pills, my buddy is on a insulin pump, and my gf's friend just has to stay on a strict diet.

    As long as you watch what you eat and check your sugar levels often, it keeps in check pretty well.

    Don't know the type yet, I'll find out on the 10th when I see the doc. Symptoms ??? Well, I'm almost 40, over weight, and drank way too much soda pops daily. I had a doc apt. last week over my acid reflex, and decided too get checked while I was going too be there anyways. I kind of thought I might be a diabetic because I've been getting head akes lately, and loosing my temper over minor stuff.

    I think I'm catching it fairly early. I can't say for sure, but I think it'll be managed will pills. It's the kick in the arse I needed too loose the flubbergut.

    You might wanna research the pill thing from what I understand your body becomes addicted to them and then you have to continue to take them to keep your level normal,I wouldn't take them, you might wanna try an extreme diet change atleast for a month or so to see if you can get it down that way,its what I did...

    I've basicly stopped eating all fried foods, completely cut out the fast foods, I quit smoking 2 months ago. I know I need too exersize, I just can't motivate myself. If I'm doing something, I can, but just walking too be walking, or whatever exersize I just can't get myself going.
