Has been just over a week since I was diagnosed with diabetes and working on what my new normal is now.

      Think the best advice I can give having had type 2 diabetes for 14 years is to be honest with yourself and your Diabetic Dr. I have struggled over the years to find what works for me and what I can and can't eat. I am lucky in that I didn't really have to change much in my diet to get my glucose on track. Mostly it was remembering that I do have to limit sugar. In the beginning my biggest issue was cutting back on soda. Now I have a can once in awhile, more as a treat. It takes time and patience and a good, trusting relationship with your care provider

It's important to remember that everyone's definition of "normal" is different, and it may take time to adjust to your new normal with diabetes. Stay active, make wise food choices, monitor your blood sugar levels, and work closely with your healthcare team to manage your condition. It may not be easy, but with time, patience, and self-discipline, you can gain control over your diabetes and establish a new normal for yourself.
