    How do I get this beast off my back. I can't live like this. I can't deal with this. I can't even control it. My A1C just keeps going up and up no matter how much I try to keep tight control or exercise or starve myself. Not even trying to match insulin does any good. No one will tell me how to get rid of this. I just want my freedom back.

    Sorry,Carol the short answer is you can't.You're stuck with it like the rest of us...but,we can help you get some control over it and come to terms with it. Tell us a bit about your Hba1c levels ,your daily levels and how much insulin you use/type and what you eat and there will be someone to give you advice.

    You can't get rid of diabetes, but you can take control. Try going onto low carb. Read Richard Bernstein and follow his "doctrine of small numbers". Low carb andlow insulin doses lead to fewer fluctuations in BG and feeling better. If you let it control you, you will not win and that's unthinkable. Read this forum ; ask for help as often as you feel the need and it will be there for you
