Quoted from cajun
Ok...I don't know if I am A1 or A2..just assuming...but I couldn't put my secretor status on my avatar without it!?

Scroll all the way down past the A1/A2 stuff you'll find A Sec.  It's the last option before the AB categories come up.  

Yeah, no doubt about the bets cajun.  I would have bet the bank that I was a nonnie, had I been a betting man.

Thanks, Rob!
Just curious...how long have you been diabetic?
My Mom (A+ and tiny) gained weight in late middle age and was told she was considered a diabetic due to that only. She lost weight over a period of a few years and now at 79 is not diabetic anymore.( She didn't take any meds..just watched her diet.)
We have traced her side of the family ( mostly all French ) pretty far back and there are no records, memories, or indications of any diabetes anywhere.

I've suspected it for a number of years now but finally got an elevated glucose reading with my last blood panel back in April.  Years ago, I had elevated triglycerides but the MD's advice was to watch my sweets.  He didn't do any further investigating.  

I'm still not claiming the disease, however.  I've not officially been diagnosed with pre, type 1 or type 2 diabetes yet.  I basically got my lab results back and decided I would fight this on my own.  Some people may say I'm playing Russian roulette with my health but I've taken some rather proactive steps in dealing with the conditions of the disease.  

I immediately went out and got a BG monitor and started testing myself.  I've kept a food and glucose diary since day 1.  Initially I tested every morning upon waking, and both 1 and 2 hours after meals.  Eating small meals throughout the day I was testing upwards of 10-15 x per day at first.  Today, I have a pretty good feel for when my BG drops and when it is elevated so I test much less frequently.  I continue to do the readings upon waking and prior to going to sleep and usually don't test during the day unless I feel other than optimal.  

I had already discovered the BTD book prior to receiving my lab results so I knew what my plan of action would be.  I then discovered Dr. D'Adamo's Diabetes protocol book and started following it immediately.  I instantly eliminated all avoids from my diet and started adding the super-beneficial foods.  This way of eating has really turned things around for me quickly.

I'm hopeful that I caught it in the early stages and that I can reverse any damage already done.

Rob,
High triglycerides are battled by everyone on my Moms side, her mother, sister and brother! Mine hang at 150 on every blood panel! My doctor said to watch the sweets, also. Since following the BTD, my normal cholesterol and glucose levels went down!
Even since her weight loss my Mom does testing like you do.
Kudos to you for "taking the reigns", very smart! You will reverse...and prosper!
I am going to take a cue from you and try to only eat my super- beneficials and follow the allergy protocols more closely.

Cajun,
BTW, my triglycerides back in April were a mere 86!  Years ago they were >200.  I'm very healthy, great HDL/LDL numbers, overall cholesterol (152).  Sure it takes a little work to do the testing and to be 100% compliant on the protocol but the pay off is well worth it.  Feeling poorly is no longer an option for me.  
I am living proof;  with incorporating more super-bennies into your diet and getting rid of the foods which poison you, you can reverse disease and illness.
Best wishes you to you and your mom.
