I was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes in Aug. At the same time my cholesterol was high, my blood pressure high, and my thyroid was off. Oh and I had gout. They gave me 9 meds plus insulin and sent me home with vague recommendations- cut out white flour, rice, pasta, sweets, alcohol. fried foods, salty foods, etc. So I did. I lost 40 lbs. My bp came way down (90/50 now), my a1c went from 10.7 to 7.4. I am blacking out when I stand up. Not all the time but some of the time. My doctor today (military dependant so I never see the same dr. twice) thinks that I am somehow depressed and looking for attention. I was… stunned. NOW I am depressed. Has anyone else experienced black outs or is there something wrong with me?
