I am not really sure. I think type 2. They were all insulin dependent. And by lots I mean grandmothers on both sides, mother, father is borderline, plenty of aunts and uncles, and at least one first cousin that I know of. My mother was my age when she was first diagnosed which I think has a lot to do with my paranoia about it. She also did not take care of it and let it kill her before she was even 50 years old. I am trying my best to not walk in their footsteps. My uncle recently lost a toe to diabetes. I have seen the worst that it can do and I don't wish for it to happen to me. I am trying to be as proactive as I can be.
Should I not be concerned about numbers? What is normal after a meal? I was at 150 after dinner tonight. I guess I just tend to think that your numbers should always be between 80-110 and anything over 120 is bad. Is that wrong?
