Hi everyone. Nice to see a place where you can find information and suggestions about diabetes, its all very helpful. I found out I had diabetes in March 2010 but have been told by my doctor I probably have had it for 15 years or so (never really went to a Dr. unless I broke something) I have just started to explore this site and have found it very useful so far to see what others are dealing with. Thanks to everyone

Welcome to the forum,

For new type 2 diabetes I recommend the crash course in type 2 at Blood Sugar 101 Blood Sugar 101, but you didn't state your type, A1c, or Fasting Glucose Numbers. Can you be a bit more informative?

You sound fairly slender for T2 -- not that that does not happen, but while you are reading blood sugar 101, take a look at LADA. You might want to get the antibody testing Jenny suggests -- it could be autoimmune and not insulin resistance.

I agree with foxl we used to have bets when referrals walked into the diabetic clinic generally speaking Type 1 are slim and type 2 are carrying extra pounds although there are exceptions to the rule.:D
