No doubt, Annie's watching you poke yourself with a big grin on her face.

Many moons ago when I was working out at a gym 4 - 5 mornings a week, met a guy who was dx'd as Type ll. He weighed ~250# and was on some oral meds for his diabetes. We both worked out very early and began to work out together , ... spotting each other in the free weight area, etc.

Over the course of about a year he lost about 50# and really firmed up. ... Bottom Line: his blood sugar returned to normal levels and he was off all meds, etc. He got there just by losing excess weight and watching what he was eating.

Good luck with your situation.

Otis Farrell dx'd 12/10, best friend to his dad, Bill, for over 14 years. Left this world while in his dadís loving arms 10/04/13. Sonny Farrell dx'd 1/14, adopted 5/15/14. Left this world while in his dad's loving arms 9/06/16. Run pain free, you Pug guys, til we're together again.

I still check-in and read posts from time to time😁. No plan to adopt another pup at this time, but I do stop and say ďhiĒ to the neighborhood pups when out for my walks.

I am a member of a human type-2 Diabetes forum and the knowledge from this forum has been very helpful. Btw, my A1c is currently 5.9, which is almost back to pre-diabetic levels.

Annie was an 18 pound Lhasa Apso that crossed the rainbow bridge on 10-5-17. She was nearly 17 years old and diabetic for 9Ĺ years.
