    Hello. I asked my doctor to diagnose me as diabetic when my pre-diabetes numbers became: A1c 6.4 and fasting 121. (He wanted me to "lose some weight and watch what I eat" until my next annual exam. I need to lose around 60 pounds.) As soon as I got access to blood sugar testing I found I was...

    My name is Clair. I was diagnosed with diabetes on the 17th of September 2014. A couple days ago... I was told that I've probably had it for years. I'm guessing since I was 11-12 because that's when my hair started falling out and when I started getting sick all the time. Randomly feeling...

    Howdy y'all, I am undiagnosed but I suspect that I fall in the metabolic syndrome or hyperinsulinemia category. I would guess that my fasting blood sugar is getting close to 100 mg/dL and my fasting insulin level is inching closer to 10 uUnits/ml. Soon I will get tested for interest sake...

    Hi Everyone, I'm a newly diagnosed T1 diabetic. Mid-August I ended up in the hospital with severe DKA, having been taken to emerg with shortness of breath.
