I have been wonder this for years. At the time of diagnosis of 'pre-diabetes' I was just starting recovery from severe Bulimia. I had been Anorexic for 3 years, and Bulimic for the following 9. When diagnosed by an endo, I was slightly underweight, but my mom had noticed my breath smelling 'sweet' (she is also a nurse, so she knew some of the signs.)
After fasting blood glucose test and a 2 hour glucose tolerance test, this endo diagnosed me.
I ask this question out of pure curiosity, and not as a way to blame myself. I am recovered from Anorexia and Bulimia and have been for the last 8 years or so. I am also the only diabetic in my family.
Ideas? Anyone else been through this?
Thanks in advance.
