Tell us about you (Short, optional bio):
I am a 52 year old women who was diagnosed T2 about 10 months ago. I am not the typical diabetic patient - i have no high blood pressure, no high cholesterol and not over weight ( I am 5'2" and weighed 120 at dx. Since then I have lost 20 lbs!). My risk factors are only both parents and one sibling with T2. I have been able to maintain control with diet and exercise. I am always looking for others with diabetes so that I can learn from them about this disease and share what I have learned.
