Thanks so much for the ear, information and the advice
It is hard with family, they all look at me and beleive the weight is what caused the diabetes.
As I am overweight. But I was an athlete for most of my life struggling with a weight issue that just ballooned in the last 5 years.
My biological family has a history of obesity and diabetes both 1 and 2. Along with heart attacks and brain tumors.
My husband is the same way, not very supportive. I got into an argument one day with him, recently. And he said just loose weight. As I have bad knees from doing all the sports and the orthos won’t help me they say I need to loose weight.
MY Physical therapist says my knee problems are not being caused by my weight. That it aggrivates it more yes but that is not the root of my problem.
I said to my hubby, my endo said this is not the main issue there is more wrong with me. Why don’t you believe the expert.
He made me dinner recently, made corn, rice and meat. I had one sv of corn, one sv rice. My BG was 172 2 hours later.
I showed him. I said see this is not good. Now all my BG will be converted into fat and I will gain weight cause this is how my body is reacting (this is according to my doctor). I am now not feeling well and want to eat cause my energy has been zapped which will put more weight on.
I finally admitted to my self that perhaps my emotions are not under my control. And I told my boss the bad couple of months I have had.
But I do feel like I very much alone…
The one good news is I have lost 18 pounds by modifying my diet with the carbs and taking metformin and byetta.
But as my doctor said, I am loosing weight and yet my my morning BGs are getting worse. And I am still not feeling well.
Thanks for listening and your advice offered…
