Hi Turtle. Yes, I believe there are several conditions that come along with diabetes for some people. I'm one of them. We may have some, not all though.
Skin tags, glaucoma and other eye problems, thyroid, kidney, heart, circulation... and depression. Who wouldn't be depressed facing these?
The best advice I can give anyone is to stay the course and try to control the blood sugar the best way possible, starting with diet and exercise. These work for all types. The closer our blood sugar is to normal, the better. If we need meds, we'll take meds, but my mantra is not to rely on meds alone to control blood sugar. I take metformin but I still eat very low carb.
Anyway, Turtle, be sure to take care of your thoughts and talk. You can talk here anytime! Stay the course!
