Had gestational diabetes at 23. Later at 36 I was diagnosed and started with diet/exercise and then finally had to go on to Amaryl, Lantus, Humulin R insulins. I inject 7 U of R, 40 U of Lantus and take 8 mg of Amaryl daily.

My hobbies are grandchildren, cooking, reading and exercising. I manage my HOA and when I have free time, I like exchanging recipes/ideas with fellow diabetics. I send out Diabetic Memos to other members and if interested you can e-mail me at
