About this web

and me

I decided to get my money's worth for the health insurance premiums and went for a full checkup and oil change at 51.

There I got diagnosed with Type II Diabetes Mellitus.

It came as quite a shock, but after a couple of days I sort of figured that I had two ways to deal with this: Either become someone suffering from a long-term condition or someone managing a long-term condition.

I chose the latter and set out to figure out and do whatever I needed to do to manage it.

What I discovered and what I did helped me, and then people started asking me about this stuff and had had a hard time finding information so I decided to gather what I knew and had discovered here.

I am not a doctor and you should not use this site in lieu of actual medical or professional nutritional advice. That would be silly.
