I'm diabetic as well, dx diabetes type II, approx. a year before being dx with PPMS. It was a hell of a year. Also tried to exercise, walking, stationary bike, better diet, etc... Went to see an endocrinologist, who freaked out when she took my blood pressure, I have high bp, she immediately sent me to the emergency waiting room on a wheel chair, and I waited for 5hrs before seeing a nurse... After that, that's when I got up and left, never to return to see her again. I'm taking standard meds for diabetes (Metformin, Crestor, Mavik for the bp), don't really have any issues with keeping my diabetes under control. I don't test as often as I used to, but I don't feel any worse because of it either. Although my db has taken a back seat to my MS, which has become worse.
