So when Jan '15 rolls around and the doc gives me the news of diabetes, I couldn't do much about working out other than to walk more which did help. So diet change was the big help.

    My swims are what took me below the threshold and I am sure I can keep that going...



    Well, some soda may be crap, But not Dr. Pepper; it is nectar from God.
    NO good BOOG thats more of the same crap I drink very little soda mostly water some gatorade , coffee ,juice and wine went down from 220 to 164 then back to 174

Any Docs here are better placed than I to comment, but getting your blood sugar down that much by diet alone is quite an achievement.



    Jeez Art, you're a bundle of joy aren't you?

    I'm in the "Better to burn out than fade away" camp myself.

    An early demise? Yeah, OK, I'll take that over abstaining from fun. Will you live longer, or will it just seem longer?

    No worries Art, I only have the Dr. Pepper when life gives me the worst stress. And being a sailor, I live on coffee... I drink plenty of water and now cocnut water as well as the potassium helps keep my leg cramps manageable.

    WHAT fun are you missing by eating and drinking good food ? i have a lot more fun and I feel better eating healthy food that tastes so much better anyway and being addicted to booze and drugs isnt fun and I like eating good food rather than fast food garbage that tastes like crap so tell me what are you calling fun explain

    There's a happy medium between addiction and abstinence, but then if you can't see that I'm not surprised you abstain.

    Well done Boog ,, take no notice of what others say ,, If it works for you stick with it , I was diagnosed diabetic 20 years ago ,, once told i relized i had the symptoms for the precvious 20 years ,, so we tried diet , not worked ,, tablets not worked ,, tablets and insulan not worked ... now tablets and 3 differnt insulin 7 injections a day , and its finally come down to an average of 9 so i still have to get a bit better .

    In my case we think it was always going to happen , due to familly history , both my parents sides have full on diabetis issues , , I think my problem is , i don't really give a hoot and despite , 2 heart attacks , 2 bouts of cancer , 1 triple by pass , bout of gangrene in stomach , 1 massive hernia put back and held in with mesh , 1 foot severed and hanging of at the ankle , 1 shoulder pinned and strapped , over 40 shin cancers burnt off , over 200 stitches in my face and head from skin cancers cut out , i sort of go get stuffed you can't catch me , and dodge the bullets . ha ha And say catch me if you can ,,, missis says God don't want me and neither does the devil , so they keep throwing me back ha ha

    Heavens to mergatroid Coneye, you have lived through a mess of life challenges. My whole family has diabetes as well, I was the last to get it.

    Now about that foot, not to get overly in your business, but you still ride I take it. Did they put it back or give you a prosthetic? I have a friend who has no right leg from the knee down that I am trying to get on a bike for the first time. He rides a recumbent bicycle now and has two different prosthetics, one for walking and one for sports. Neither work well for a motorcycle though. Just curious about yours.

    One leg missing is nothing. One of the best fighter pilots in WWII had two artificial legs. Seriously though, you have come through some stuff, and well done.
