Hello, Andy. What brings you here? Can you tell us a little about yourself? I am a type2 diabetic on 1000 mg. metformin twice a day and 10 mcg. Byetta twice a day. My numbers are usually pretty good and I have a terrible time getting motivated to exercise. *sigh*

Well I wanted to learn more about diabetes and my risks. I take medication that increases my chances for diabetes. (the atypical antipsychotics Zyprexa and Abilify; working on being on Abilify solo). I don't have diabetes or pre-diabetes yet, but would like to be part of the community to be ready for when it does happen. Thanks.

Hello Andy, I recognize you from another site. I understand what you are saying about your medications. Why are you taking the medications? I hope you don't mind me asking. Good luck to you!

Richard

Thanks Andy, now I understand why those medications are so important and that you must take them. Be sure to ask questions here that you may have.

Hello Netsavvy, Welcome to the site and I can understand your fear of being a diabetic. I have had this now for 37 years and my advice to be healthy is to do something physical every day. And don't be sad. :):D
