Like "You don't list your other conditions but many diabetics have plenty. Overweight is common along with neurological and cardiac difficulties. I'm actually under weight and struggling to gain but I'm a rarity. I originally found out I was diabetic when I dropped 60 pounds in 6 months without trying.Believe me, trying to gain weight with diabetes isn't easy either. I can't just pour on the carbs for obvious reasons. And my heart trouble keeps me from significant exercise. Each of us seems to have a unique set of troubles and that's one reason for this site; we share the load. Advice is always good. Even if it doesn't help, it's nice to know somebody cares enough to try."
