Managing Type 2 Diabetes & Other Chronic/Autoimmune Illnesses

In addition to type 2 diabetes, what other chronic and/or autoimmune illnesses do you manage?

  1. Celiac disease and osteoarthritis

    1. not really. I just got the diagnosis of pre diabetes a few weeks ago so now I have to watch food labels for carbs.

    2. I can only imagine how challenging it must be to manage all three. How has dealing with your recent pre-diabetes diagnosis been? I imagine you might be feeling a little overwhelmed. If you are looking for any resources or information, please let us know.

  2. Diabetes, copd, psoriasis, spondylitis

    1. Forgot to add hypothyroidism also. I just go day by day the best I can. I rely mostly on natural herbs & etc & a few prescriptions.

    2. Thanks for your response! Hope you are doing well today. Happy Friday, and enjoy your weekend. -Ashlen, Type2diabetes.com community moderator

  3. I also have Chronic Migraine, Ménière’s disease, osteoarthritis, Obesity, hypothyroidism as well as some spinal issues. I was just diagnosed with Heart Failure. I just take it one day at a time!

    1. Taking it one day or one step at a time is truly the best we can do! Sending positive thoughts your way. 😀 -Ashlen, Type2diabetes.com community moderator

  4. I am also dealing with bipolar disorder and schizophrenia

    1. Thanks for joining this thread! Managing multiple conditions at once is no easy task - we hope you have the support/resources you need. Glad to have you in our community! -Ashlen, Type2diabetes.com community moderator
