Ah yes, typical liberal that thinks he knows everything and knows nothing.<quoted text>That would mean you grew up being way overweight until what, 25. Most people's standards of saying 'several years ago' doesn't go back 29 years with yet another one of your made up sob stories. You sound like an only child who wouldn't get up off of the couch and didn't have any friends that would play with you, and you've held that resentment every since. Bring on your newest WOE is me story, we all know you will.
Actually I discovered my disease when I was taking amino acids because I was working out with weights heavily. I was on a high protein diet and was in the best shape in my life. Then I began to lose a lot of weight which I attributed to all the exercises I was doing. But my frequent bathroom trips were very unusual, so the nurse at work recommended I take a glucose meter home with me and test myself a few times.
For whatever reason, the amino acids really shot my sugar up. If not for them, I might have not discovered my problem for months or years later.
