Re: [IP] amen to comments about obesity and type 2

I gained 60 lbs when I stared insulin. Hopeing I can get if off with the
pump. The funny thing was that I had dropped 45 and was taking Glucophage
and Ameryl and my A1c went to 11 from 6. Go figure the weight issue.
Diabetes 1 or 2 is still Diabetes
