I am a type 2 diabetic and I have lost

I am a type 2 diabetic and I have lost a lot of weight and I can't seem to get any weight on no matter what I eat I am a 72 year old black female and when I was in my youth I was skinny but not like I am today my kids think that I am too skinny and so do I am trying to keep my sugar levels at a good read and the readings are all over the place I am a breast cancer survisor of ten years but almost a month ago it returned but now in my lungs and we are in the process of treating it by radioactive lazer to begin on nov. 6, 2018 so I am not sure if I'm doing to much or what but nothing has anything to do with my weight so I'm just trying to hang in here and try to figure out some other alternatives hopefully thru some suggestions from any of you I have not spoken to my primary doc. of my concerns or really anyone these other things are coming so fast at me that when I go to the different doc. my mind just goes a complete blank even if I write my questions down but I'm a positive person and I'm dealing with my situation the best I can and I just looking for some alternatives that I have not considered yet if you can help I absolutely would appreciate it very much but if not then its all good I will keep trying to work on myself the best I can my weight ranges between 125-128 and I am 5' and a fairly happy reasonably person I have my faith and trust in the almighty and I have come to realize that it is wha it is and I can't fix it so I will deal with one day at a time thank you so much for letting me vent and I will be grateful for any suggestions that anyone has.

I just read that after a diagnosis of Congestive Heart Desease, you only have about 5 years left.? Since I learned last July that I have CHD, I have been diagnosed Type 2 Diabetic and the insulin treatment seems to be working, my numbers now in the 90 s. I ve lost 23 lbs but I m still not on a reliable exercize plan. Although, I am walking better and able to bounce up the stairs again. Does the 5 year death sentence still stick if I keep up with my therapy? Pam

Hi I have type 2 diabetes I had insulin resistence from 1999 and was treated with metformin for 12 months everything balanced till I had kids. I developed gestational diabetes with my second pregnancy and about 12 months later crossed the line to diabetes. I originally was put on 2 diaformin morning and night but as I lost weight the dose was lowered to one 500mg in morning. I also had minimal thyroid function and am on thyroxin one 25mg a day. I have recently moved and the new doctor was concerned my blood sugar was 6.2 in a fasting test and changed me to glucobay is this a good diabetic tablet as he didn t really give me any info just the script. I have over the last 15 months lost 30kg by cutting out sugar and having the medications.
