  • Yes I have type 2 diabetes. Have had it for over 20 years. I was diagnosed when I was pregnant with my second child. It has been and up and down battle for many years but I keep trying. I have lost a lot of the weight but don't want to lose anymore. I was a size 22 at one point but got down to a 14. Went down a little more before but didn't care for that size anyway, I am blessed not to have many complications like a lot of others do. I for the most part do what I need to to keep it under control. Thanks for asking

  • I had gestational diabetes when I was pregnant with my son, and was diagnosed with type 2 about 6 years ago. I take actos for my blood sugar, and monitor my diet. Like Cheveyo, it's been an up and down battle for me, but I just take it day by day.
