Welcome to our support group, where we all prob'ly wondered once or twice "why me?" But it's a moot question - and we're better advised to apply our energy to getting our blood sugar under control. There's a wealth of wisdom and knowledge here, so ask all the questions you want; did they test you for antibodies? Maybe you're a type 1 or 1.5 - obesity isn't necessarily what causes diabetes. What has your doctor prescribed to manage it?
