Good luck with your new endo and DE, Jackie! Getting your blood sugars under control will lead to a healthier, happier life in general. Ask them for suggestions on an exercise plan too. When I exercise regularly, my control is better and my weight stays in check.
I live in the Baltimore area, so if you ever need a diabetic get together, just let me know. :) I go to Dr. Kayla Cunningham at Maryland Endocrine and I really like her. There are several doctors in the practice and they have locations in both Laurel and Columbia. http://www.marylandendocrine.com/
