I was diagnosed with diabetes 2 months ago. I had a blood sugar of 576, with only a trace amount of ketones, and insulin resistance. The doctors aren’t too sure what type I am, since I have an average weight. My a1c was 15%, which I’ve managed to bring down to 7% since then (yay!). Now, I’m on a small amount of insulin.
I feel that this is all kind of connected to the birth control pills I started taking, because that was the only time I had any symptoms(which weren’t very severe- a slightly increased thirst, and a little weight gain around my abdomen). When I dropped the pills, the symptoms disappeared. Anyone ever heard of the pills triggering diabetes??
I guess I’ve adjusted pretty well to having diabetes. I feel a lot healthier now!
Yup, so that’s my story! I look forward to getting to know the community!!
