Thank you for posting this. I realize this was posted over a year ago, but I was actually 26 when I was diagnosed with type II, and I lost weight and it went away, but now that I'm 38 and gained some, it's come back with a vengeance and I have weird blood sugars that rise and drop and go way up and hang out and then sharply fall. I have an appt with an endocrinologist in a month and am happy to hear that walking helps--but I will agree that I never want to walk when my sugars are high--mostly I "freak out" or get "anxious' or "nervous ticks' and just want to sleep. Then when it drops too sharply, that's when my heart starts racing etc... I hate that feeling like I'm having a heart attack or something and it's a panic attack--I also have some lovely fatty liver issues with my diabetes. It's a vicious cycle, where I'm told to eat right and lose weight--but eating right leads to drops in sugar (belive it or not) or sugar being too high. I hate this cycle. Also, if my sugar gets in the 90's I feel weak like I'm going to pass out, even though 90 is on the "high end" of normal. I hate this disease, and wish it would just go away.View Thread
