I was diagnosed with type 2 incorrectly for about 4 years. I'm not overweight, 50 years old and had a job that gave me exercise. Had lost about 20 pounds and felt ready to cash in my chips. I couldn't work for more than 2 hours at a time without resting.
Then I went to a diabetic nutrionist who said immediatley I had type 1. The next day I had a appointment with an endocronologist, he also said the same thing and immediately gave me insulin pens to use. The next day, using the insulin, I worked overtime for the first time in about a year and went without stopping the whole day. I still don't have complete control over my sugar, use the insulin pump/pens, but I feel like living again. One other item that may help others is diet sodas.
I had chest indigestion one day and went for a cardio stress test. They said your fine so I looked at what I was eating and drinking. I remembered that aspartame causes nerve problems, so I stopped drinking my diet Mt. Dew, 3 or 4 a day. I don't have chest pain anymore. Am now drinking tea made by putting hot tap water and tea bags in container. Let it sit OUT of the refrigerator. Take the tea bags out and refrigerate. Try making or eating the food tempeh. Use your oven to make it. Incredible food.
