Diabetes runs in my family but I managed to avoid it until about three years ago. After my accident, I gained a substantial amount of weight and was very dormant. They also pumped me full of steroids. Just wondering if there were a lot of us out there with the same problem. It seems that many of you mention it in your posts. I've lost quite a bit of weight and exercise now but I haven't lost enough to get it fully under control. I'd like to lessen my meds sometime.
