Type 2 with ADHD combined type

Hi, I'm a 43 yr old female living with type 2 diabetes and ADHD combined type (inattentive and hyperactive). ADHD has played a huge role in my being able to take proper care of my diabetes. When you tend to make impulsive decisions, have trouble prioritizing etc it's hard to remember to do things like moisturizing feet, test blood sugars. So I have learned to cope using iphone apps with reminders and glucose tracking. I'm On meds and they are controlling my diabetes well but still have ADHD…See More

Intuitive Eating and Diabetes

Hi, I'm a 43 year old female living w type 2. I tried abstinence for 13 years before ending up in eating disorder inpatient treatment for binge eating disorder where I learned about intuitive eating. Have since found I'm allergic to gluten and dairy so have changed my plan. Would love to chat with you all as I am trying to lose weight as well (down to 312 from 314.)
