4 1/2 years ago I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure and high cholesterol. Granted I was only 45 years old and extremely active. I play weekend softball on a traveling team and we practice twice a week. I also play horseshoes and volleyball. I am not overweight (145 lbs, 5ft 3in tall). I was devastated when my dr. gave me these diagnosis. Diabetes and HBP runs in my mother's family. My question to myself through tears was why and how could this happen to me? The response my dr. gave me was hereditary. This is not easy to handle but I'm adjusting and taking 1 day at a time. My husband is very understanding when I'm having a difficult day.
