I been watching my diet for the past two weeks when I found that I might be diabete? What else can I do to prevent from becoming full blown diabete or am I diabete already?
For information I have been losing a pound a day. Could I be diabete 1? What do you detect with my charts? Thank you.

Hello
You can easily reverse this at this point
you are not diabetic...at worst it is pre-diabetes..and just barely
See the book
Dr. Neal Barnards Program for Revering Diabetes, which shows the foods to eat, the science behind what you should eat, and recipes.

Many have stopped it much further along than you are.
good luck
