I have had hypothyroidism for years and before we had a handle on it I put on a lot of weight and fast. All the medication did was steady my weight. It doesn't decrease or increase. I've always been weary of diabetes because it runs in my family, my bio mother has it as well as her mother.
My doctor isn't having me watch my diet or blood glucose levels. He did check my A1C and that's when he diagnosed me with diabetes. I'm depressed and upset so I really haven't been doing anything to help my health.
