Thanks for the help Ted


I was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes in 2006. My numbers would range from 150 to 275. My doctor put me on Metformin and then added Trulicity several years later. My numbers were still in the 150-225 range even watching my diet. I started following the suggestion of Ted regarding my carb intake, processed foods, and so forth. My numbers started coming down immediately. After a year of watching my diet, I currently keep my numbers from 100-125 without any medication. I had stomach issues with the medication, and was taking large quantities of Pepto Bismal daily. This issues went away. I feel better of course, and have more energy than previously. Thanks for all the great advice Ted.
