YEs and Yes and Double yes. Going thru menopause and diabetes whether it be 1 or 2. Night sweats and hot flashes were horrible. I learned to sleep on a towel for night sweats. Be kind to yourself during this period. There are a lot of natural herbs that will help tremendously. At this time , my eyes were different too. And the mood swings… lord have mercy. I was a raging lunatic. I would cry at tire commericals. One moment I was kind and sweet and the other I was like a screaming banache. Take your list of meds and go to the female dr. And then do to your diabetes dr. Take both advices and then go to the herb shop and listen to them. Then sit down and make your own conculsion. And remember what works one month may not work next month. This is a journey. Start exercising. It will help tremendously. With depression , not sleeping. Study food. Keep a detailed journey and it will be a tell tale sign of your diabetes and menopause.
