Pay close attention to your blood sugar from you post you are high risk. If I had been eating correctly and more active I could have delayed this for years. So far I have managed to control it sans meds with just diet and exersize along. My dad did it that way for 15 years before starting insulin and pills. I sure hope the inhaled insulin is perfected before I need meds.

i used to run a lot and did the cardiff (wales) marathon in 3hours 40 when i was younger but want to start again-have just started again but have pulled a calf muscle-trying to run before i walk! i am 47 years of age-any hints re running-i presume just warm up properly, walk to warm up then begin running and don't rush it!
I'll keep my fingers crossed that you never have to deal with insulin or blood testing. My hubby is involved with the JDRF (he is training for his second big 100 mile bike ride--last year they did it in Asheville, NC, this year Death Valley), so I've been around a few kids who have insulin pumps and have to check their blood several times/day. What an awful disease.
So far avoiding white foods (white sugar, white rice, white flour, potatoes) really helps a lot to keep me from feeling crappy and wanting to eat everything in the house. That's just as well, anyhow--there's little-to-no nutritional value in those things, anyhow, so maybe it's a blessing in disguise...
