Hey Rana...I am, in fact, a type 2 diabetic. I manage it all with diet and exercise and my doctor tells me I don't need to be on meds for this at this time. She wants me to take stuff for my heart, which is just fine and there's no history of heart disease in my family. All my cholesterol, bp and triglyceride numbers are great, and that annoys her a little because I'm an atypical fat person. So, I treat myself as if I'm PCOS and hypothyroid, I did a lot of reading and found supplements that actually help on my own. Hopefully, the recent trend of weight loss will continue and I will finally break the worlds LONGEST PLATEAU IN HISTORY! Two whole years!
