I have been struggling with diabulmia for years now. I was diagnosed at 16 and realized by the time I was 17 that I could control my weight with it and make myself lose weight. I am now 28 and still have issues with it even though I did not throughout my pregnancy but afterwards it was bad. Even being on an insulin pump and continuous I still have issues. I am wondering if you offer your services any more. Please let me know. I sent you a friend request as well.
