I have had type II since 2005 and lost weight as soon as I began my medications (Metformin & Glipizide) I was taken off of the Metformin after 1 month and a loss of 10 - 15 lbs.
Recently I lost another 10 lbs and my doctor put me on Actos & Glipizide. I also have hypertension and take an Amoldipine? pill daily.
I am down to 130 - 133 lbs and am 5'-9" tall. Not Good.
I have always been thin, 135 lbs in high shool and never gained too much weight. Everyone tells me that I burn it off because I'm so "wirey :)"
The most that I've ever weighed is 160 lbs before Diabetes.
I WANT TO GAIN WEIGHT!
Does anybody know of a product that can help? Has to be sugar free.
Please do not respond to this discussion to tell me "You're so lucky to be thin . . ." I hear it all the time. Sorry and my prayers go out to those of you trying to lose weight.
I want to gain weight. Can you help?
