I had gestational diabetes with my last son…that was fun! And then when he turned 12, I had a routine checkup, blood work, etc…and sure enough there were those ugly numbers again. I tried very hard to control it with eating, but what did I know then.
My doc put me on amaryl first, and then tried serveral other meds, exercise, weigh control, and now a low carb diet. The only symptom I had was being tired, but I worked 13 hour days, too…so who knew? the one thing that I am amazed at is that at my job, we had M&M’s all the time, it was Nothing for me to gobble down a 3 lbs bag every other day. I should have gone into diabetic shock of some kind…very scarey, because I was the only person in the office most of the time, and for many days!
