    Congrats....

    I unexpectedly lost 6kg....was 120kg, now 114kg.

    Then i was informed weight loss is normal.....when you are first diagnosed type 2 diabetic :(

    Ah well - @pappajohn - if your blood sugar is too high and you aren't receiving treatment - and your body because it isn't overweight is not producing an excess of insulin to try and fight it off - you WILL lose weight! That much weight loss however for a T2, is a bit extreme - but NOT for T1, it's typical for a T1 merely because you HAVE stopped producing ANY insulin (virtually)

    1. are they actually certain you are T2 ? what tests have you had?
    2. more importantly - what's your blood glucose actually doing, day by day?
