Short answer is you are what is known as a type 2 Diabetic.
That means the body does not produce enough insulin or cannot properly use the insulin it does produce.
Sigmoid Colostomy / Crohns / Type 1 Diabetic / Ostioarthritus / Fibromyalgia / Asthma / High Blood Pressure / High Colesterol / Migraines. Ain't life a joy?

I must have enough insulin as my dr did a test and said that my insulin production is above where it should be, so I guess that I cannot properly use the insulin I make. I am on glucophage, and he said because of this problem is why I have a problem losing weight. Ever hear of that?
