19 yr Navy vet off active duty for 6 yrs. Been a diabetic for 4 yrs. On insulin. Also have Sleep Apnea and on a bi-pap. Dad died when he was 66. He an mother both had (have) diabetes too. I'm more overweight than they but my medical care through the VA is excellent and am seeing a nutritionist through the VA every 6 weeks. Weight loss and decreasing/or stopping smoking major goals for me this year. I want to be less insulin dependent but even with serious weight loss, I may be predisposed to the disease since my parents became adult 2 diabetics and were not overweight.
