where people touched by diabetes help each other.

How do I know how many carbs a day I am supposed to have with Type II? I was just diagnosed yesterday. Thanks! Looks like I need all the support and info I can get.

You probably should discuss that work your doctor or a nutritionist. A lot depends on you, your health, your activity level, fitness goals, etc. My experience, however, was that I does not like the advice I received and adjusted downward, until I felt comfortable.

Thought I'd check in on you. I was diagnosed 2 years ago and remember that initial confusion. How are you managing?
