I mentioned this in some other threads but wanted a dedicated discussion here in health and wellness. I found out December 5th that I have diabetes. The last few weeks have been a real journey. I don’t want to whine about my problems, seriously, it’s just diabetes it’s not cancer. I am going to adjust my lifestyle some, but I will do what I need to be healthy. I would like to discuss this with others here on BB who might be diabetic or have loved ones who are. What tipped me off was that I was losing weight with no change in activity or eating habits. I am overweight and have checked my weight every day for years. I do try to live and eat healthy, I have for years. When you see you have lost 5 lbs you are happy. I was thinking, hey, all the food I passed up and the exercise are finally working. Then I lost 10 lbs and I was really happy. I may have actually increased my work outs and stuff because I thought I was seeing results. Then I had lost 20 lbs and I started wondering, “Why is this happening?” Then what really alarmed me was I made it through thanksgiving without gaining any weight. So after all that I decided I better see my doctor and get my sugar. It was over 350. What really frustrates me is that my sugar was over 350, but I felt good, really good. Other than the weight loss I had no idea. Now I am on several prescriptions and feel terrible, but my sugar is better. Also, now my doctor wants me to lose weight, no big surprise. But before I started taking these drugs the weight was dropping off without trying; now I am cutting out all these sugar and carbs but the weight is staying level. I have some adjusting still. So, are you diabetic? How did you find out? What was the hardest change for you? I could use some support and help with this.
