I am 63 and have just been told my prediabetes isn't pre anymore. I also have pulmonary hypertension and knee issues. At least my hair doesn't hurt...or my big toe. I guess that is something to be happy for.

I am chronically ill. I have Bipolar Disorder, GERD, Barretts Esophagus, Anyklosing Spondylosis, Psoriatric Arthritis, High Blood Pressure, High Cholesterol, DDD, RLS, Irritable Bowel, Migraines, Lymphedema and a host of other irritating things. This is why I am hoping to lose 50 pounds. I need to feel better. It is depressing being this ill.

For over 25 years I was told I have rheumatoid arthritis. Two years ago, after a lot of personal investigations, I asked my GP to refer me to a specialist in hypermobility disorders. I stopped taking the medications for RA after discussing things with the doctors.

Turns out I don't have RA after all. The doctors 25+ years ago and more recently were wrong.

I'm now undergoing all sorts of tests to determine what form of hypermobility disorder I have, whether that be a variation of Ehlers Danlos Syndrome or something else.

I'm also on medications for an inborn problem with my kidneys. Chances are this too is also related to whatever has caused the hypermobility.

Nan

No more compromising who I am to become who I think someone else wants me to be.

Neuropathy hands and feet along with carpal tunnel in both hands and one elbow plus a trigger finger. Now try to exercise with this mess as any pressure causes numbness. Itโ€™s not impossible but very difficult. Currently using a recumbent bike , if I donโ€™t hold on I try not to fall off ....lol

I'm 69 and I fell last year and broke my femur just below my hip joint last, so I have a rod and screws in my leg. I'm still dealing with it. I found an endocrinologist who put me on Metformin which lowered by blood sugar from 115 to 100 and I stopped night cravings. I released 36# and have kept it off for over a year. I plan to release another 20#. I take Armour Thyroid, a weekly shot of Bydureon, Baclofen (a muscle relaxant that helps me sleep), Progesterone, blood pressure medicine (my doctor says it will help my kidneys) and Vitamin K.
My doctor tells me "You don't want diabetes as it ruins everything." I keep reading that T2D is connected to Alzheimer's so I don't want that. Plus exercise is vital to keeping healthy, as Jack LaLanne taught us. He said "Don't lose the legs, because once they are gone, you're gone."

56 living in Florida with Chronic fatigue syndrome and fibromyalgia. Eating better and tracking nutrition helps a bit. Unfortunately, dealing with pain and fatigue makes normal daily functions rough. Hopefully, the nutrition will transition into more energy and less pain. Keep the faith folks.
