Today I found out I have diabetes. To be honest, I'm shocked. Does anyone else have it? Share your experience, please.

If you mean diabetes type 2, it is very (very !!) commonplace these days.

I have it, so do many of my friends. It is treatable by controlling your diet plus some minimal medication.

Check your sugars regularly & try & keep them under 6.0 & you'll be fine.

If at first you don't succeed, just call it Version 1.0

I've had it 23 years. Diagnosed as slowly evolving type 1. Some Docs call it type 2 though, so no idea what type I have. Tried to control it with diet - no go. Tried pills - no go. Eventually I went on to insulin, 4-5 shots daily - easy peasy. I just count the carbs in everything I eat and have the right amount on insulin to counteract the carbs.
Unfortunately, Doctors will always put you on pills, Metformin or whatever.
If your body isn't producing insulin like it should, what's the best way to treat that? Easy, inject insulin.
