I was dx with diabetes around six years ago. Fibro four years ago, although I think I had it a lot longer than official dx looking back over the years. Just went last Wednesday to my PCP and she said I have to get better control of diabetes, up in the high 100's to 200. She also said that could be what's contributing to my extreme tiredness and muscles just not working right. It's hard to distinguish what the fibro causes and diabetes does, but I think they feed off one anohter! I'm not good with my diet because I love sweets, (carbs) bad for both too! And Mrs. T is right, somethimes with fibro we don't exercise like we should to get our blood glucose down! I try to remember everyone's advice on here....exercise...light but exercise! So watch what you eat, and the portion size has a lot to do with it too! Good luck with everything! It's just another change to go through, but it can be done, I've come to the conclusion that we wll always be adapting to what life throws at us so we might as well make the best of it!
