    A little background - I am 30 years old, have no family history of diabetes, and my BMI has been in the "overweight" (I did hit low-obese at 2 points pre diets) range pretty much the past 10 years. I just had a baby 3 months ago and was diagnosed with gestational diabetes at 24 weeks and was...

    Hi everyone, I am an 18 (nearly 19) year old female living in the UK who has not yet been diagnosed (and, fingers crossed, may not even have diabetes), but today was referred to my GP for a diabetes test following an eye exam. Today, I visited an optician because I have been experiencing pain...

  7. Diabetes Symptoms
    Hello. My wife recently went to the doctor, and while a definitive diagnosis of diabetes has not yet been made, it seems likely to come soon. Her fasting glucose was 300 and her A1C was 13. These are, to my knowledge, high numbers even for a diabetic. She is 32 and is in good health, for the...

    As games go, I don't recommend it. Type 2 diabetes sucks. And what angers me most is the constant criticism by the media that it's our fault. No. I don't think so. You have to have the genes for it and most people with weight problems do not become diabetic. Has it never entered anyone's...
