I have been a diabetic for 33 years now. I am very healthy and with no problems yet! My a1c is 6.1 and steady! Since I turned 40 my weight has become an issue. I exercise 4 times a week. My diet is great. My doctor states that this is a side effect from taking insulin for 30+ years. I refuse to hear this. Are there any diabetics out there, 40+ who have any weight loss success stories that will help me? Your help is GREATLY appreciated!
