I am also a thinner Type 2 who has always exercised and was the first in my family to be dx'd D. I am 118 pounds and I was dx'd 4 years ago with a fasting of 240 and HbA1c of 10. At that time I was also a vegetarian eating fruits, whole grains and very low fat. So I guess I just drew the short straw. Actually 20% of type 2's are actually like us. Sometimes it is hard to get doctors to take us seriously because we don't fit their idea of what a diabetic looks like. I fear a lot of people like us may delay diagnosis because of how fit we are.
