I want to let you know about three people that will help you along the way. These people are a Dietician, a psychiatrist and your personal physician. A dietician will go more in depth from what I have posted into letting you know how to eat properly for a diabetic, he may tell you for example exactly what foods not to eat or maybe just to keep a food journal. The psychiatrist will help you through the tough periods. Theres gonna be times when you want to give up but you cant. The last person will be you personal physician his job is to know you well. He is most likely been your doctor for a while, he knows you and your body. Just remember never give up and look for people to help you on the way.
