I contracted Diabetes from a double whammy from taking abilify then seroquel and both can cause diabetes. It does run in the family as well. I gained 60 pounds as my bipolar meds causes hunger.. I took off 30 lbs last year by swimming every day in our condos inside pool then gained 15 back. I have been making christmas presents and not getting up and about so much. Almost done 2 more weeks. Blood work tomorrow. Last time it was 7.1. I have been eating majorly salads eggs and mixed vegetables. I am 59 and on disability due to my bipolar. I do not eat much meat as my income is very limited. Maybe I have lunch a few times a week and am able to. Now that winter is coming…i keep my temp at 63 wear ankle socks…when I go to bed my feet seem to be cold for a long time. Is it cold or not enough walking?
