Chemo related type 2 diabetes

I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes after my ovarian cancer in 2014. I never had high blood sugar until after my chemo. It varies from 151 to 310, the diet are the same but I think that I need to exercise and will do it in 2016! I need to change my food and exercise decisions to get both my blood sugar and cholesterol down.

Can’t wait to get into this website and be healthier for the new year and onward!
