Like "Hey MaxieFo, Nice to meet you. And welcome to Diabetic Connect. I am glad you found your way to us! I often hear stories that are similar to yours. It's always a mystery to me how some doctors will connect the dots, as you said so well, while others don't. What's important right now is to work closely with your current doctor to take the best care of yourself. It's good to know you don't have any kidney damage. I encourage you to get educated on Type II to learn as much as you can about what you can do to stay as healthy as possible. You have come to the right place to share experiences, get new ideas, and get support for the emotions that may come up along the way. So stay in touch with us, my friend! Gary "
