From Caracas, DF, Venezuela:
Actualmente me han diagnosticado Diabetes. He leido aquí Tipo 1, 2 Moody, No sabía que existieran varios tipos de diabetes, desearía más información. Soy vegetariano desde niño, y no sé que debo comer, y que tipo de control médico debo tener. Hace 20 días cuando me diagnosticaron diabetes, mis exámenes médicos mencionaban 283 en glicemia y 305 en trigliceridos, hace 4 días me repite un examen de sangre y mi glicemia es de 279 y los trigliceridos indican 600. Necesito una orientación y es urgente. Que debo hacer para bajar mi glicemia y mis trigliceridos.
(I have been just diagnosed with diabetes. I have read here about type 1, 2, MODY. I didn't know there were different types of diabetes; I would like more information. I have been vegetarian since childhood, and I don't know what I should eat, and what type of medical control I should have. Twenty days ago when I was diagnosed with diabetes, my medical exam showed a blood sugar of 283 and triglycerides of 305, repeated four days ago 279 sugar and triglycerides 600. I need help and it is urgent. What can I do to lower my blood sugar and my triglycerides?)
