I just wanted to stop and say hello. Diabetes has been around all my life. My father had the disease, and he died because of heart complications at the age of 64 (in 2000). I became interested in joining and helping causes, and I knew that I would get it eventually. I have weight problems, hypothyroidism, and a very irregular endocrine system in general.
Pre-Diabetic in 2002, the “silent enemy” came knocking on my door a couple of years ago. Type 2, metformin, diet and exercise. I’ve fallen off the wagon several times, but now I have the support I need to keep going.
I’m really glad to have found this place.
