I have been type 1 diabetic for 30yrs. The passed 5 yrs I have been getting fatter and fatter. I have been to see my diabetic nurse who has tested for Hypothyroidism and said the blood test came back as borderline. I have these symptoms, I am now at least 3 stone heavier, I have also seen a dietician who said there is nothing wrong with my diet but would like to see me add an apple or fruit daily. i eat healthy and my diabeties is well managed and i dont inject a huge amount of insulin per day. I can sleep at anytime anywhere, i try not to sit on a comfy chair because i will drop off to sleep. I do have chronic lymphoedema and wear stockings to help with the swelling in my legs and prevent anymore ulcers. I have terrible pain in my elbows. I walk at least 14 miles per week if not more, because i train Labradors for a living. I am 48yrs old. Do i go and see my doctor and see if he can put me on medication, or is it all in my head and its just all the other health issues i have?
