I have type II diabetes and a non functioning pancreas, I also have hypertrygiceremia and hyperlipidemia. I have become an emotional eater and due to fat,salt,sugar and carb restrictions, have an extremely limited diet. I have 8 other chronic conditions and get frustrated with how poorly I feel. I am on antidepressants and it helps a lot but I still find myself eating more than I should and sometimes the foods I should avoid. I have a new doctor and see the educator every 2 months.I need to know if anyone else has these problems. By the way, I have been diabetic since 1989 after a particularly serious case of pancreatitis caused my tryglicerides in th 2500 range. I have had to be on prednisone and now am taking methotrexate injections for psoriatic arthritis which is severe.. I take Levemir and Novolog insulins.
