I have Diabetes 2, and have been working hard to equalize my blood sugars. I inject insulin on a sliding scale and thus need to insure that I have the correct carbs at each meal. I have been using another program but find that many of the foods that I look up are not there and I must find them online and enter them. Takes too much of my time. In 2016 I had a meningioma (brain tumor) and had it removed. Not as scarey as it sounds. After the hospital I spent time in a Nursing facility. It was an eye opener and I have been taking much better care of myself. Counting carbs has had the benefit of causing weight loss. I noticed this when my shoes and watch were too loose.

Semi-controlled Type 2 Diabetes. Controlled hypertension. Controlled hypokalemia.
I was Navy brat. Born in Philly, and am now in Southern CA. Lived in Gitmo for 5 yrs. Was there during the Castro takeover. Spent teen years in New Jersey on Long Beach Island. Career was crisis intervention and victim advocate.
My goal now is to get my diabetes under control. Counting carbs has brought my A1C down from 12.9 to 8.5. I need to get it to 7.0 and am pretty sure I can do it with the help of this program.
Hope that I can find some weightloss friends here. Good luck to all of you on your weight loss journey and God bless you. Kathryn
