Well I have been diagnosed since 1987, never really taken it seriously. When I got pregnant at the age of 18 I weighed 150 pounds, by the time I was 7 months along I weighed 210 and didn't lose an ounce when she was born. I had problems with my sugar levels while pregnant and was diagnosed shortly after my daughter was born. I am 44 now and weigh in at 258 pounds. I suffer from Bi-polar disorder along with the diabetes. My meds effect my sugar levels a lot so I have problems all the way around. I used food to comfort my depression and did not realize how much damage it was doing to me. Funny how a simple necessity can be so harmful. I am starting to lose weight. My A1-C was down to 6.5 but due to stress it is back up to 7.6. I am not of the type of diet I need to be on, my doctor does not discuss this with me. I am just starting to really pay attention to these things. You see I have a precious little grand daughter who has asked me to play with her everyday from now on. Can any one suggest a good diet? I do not do green vegetables real well. Maybe a good vitamin?
