    I just read your post under the one about a finger prick and noticed you have been given only part of the tools you need to deal with Diabetes. You should have been referred to a Diabetes Educator to help you understand what you are dealing with and what the numbers mean, how to count food exchanges, etc.

    You also should have seen a dietician to come up with a specific meal plan for you to follow so you know you are eating the right things. It sounds like you are being sent off blindly to figure this out, which is not fair to you or helpful to your health. Some Diabetes Educators work by phone, so where you live really should not impact it. There have to be people who are trained in this, even in south Texas.

    Please ask about this and don't stop asking until you have found the help you need and deserve.
