Welcome to Real Diabetics. I’m Antoinette, and I’m so excited you found me. I created this community for people who have type 2 diabetes but aren’t perfect in their management of their condition. It’s for real people who lead real lives. People who eat cake, drink wine, love pasta, and enjoy fried foods. People who can’t follow a low carb diet 365 days a year. Real people, not robots. Is your A1C higher than 8? Do you struggle with following a healthy diet? Are you having a hard time accepting that you need to take medicine to manage your disease? Do you hate exercising? Are you unable to manage stress and it’s affecting your numbers? If you answered yes to any of these questions, then you’re in the right place. Real Diabetics is for type 2 diabetics who want to feel better and do a better job of managing their disease but need help getting there. There’s no judgement here.
Only a type 2 diabetic can understand the challenges that come from having the disease. Sorry, you won’t find any miracle cures here; just honest conversations from someone who has lived the struggle and who works consistently to stay ahead of the progression of the disease. If you have been unable to hit your targets, then, join me as I discuss topics that type 2 diabetics really struggle with. And if you know a type 2 diabetic that needs help, point them to Real Diabetics.
