Managing My Type 2 Diabetes: Everything in Moderation
When I was 60 years old, I complained to my doctor about frequent urination. This symptom, coupled with my age and family history, prompted a blood test, and sure enough, I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes.
I’ve been living with the disease for 20 years, and fortunately, am still able to control it without insulin injections. In fact, until a few years ago, I was taking only one metformin pill a day to regulate my blood sugar. Now, I take two pills in the morning and one before bed. It seems like the older I get, the harder it is for my body to produce insulin like it should to regulate my blood sugar.
