So about a year ago my grandmother died. She lived with Lupus for over forty long years. In the end, it was just a lot of complications ( triple bypass surgery for a leaking aneurism on her aorta, failed kidneys, just a lot).
My dad used to be prediabetic and lost over 150 lbs. He was still diagnosed with type 2 diabetes back in late 2010. Now a few months ago, he was informed that since my grandmother had Lupus, it caused him to become a type 1 diabetic. I now I am obese and all, but I am trying to lose some weight. I am now just really worried I might get diabetes or even Lupus. I already have psoriasis on my scalp only, at least according to the doctors its psoriasis.
Can anyone help? I just want some answers before I go and talk to my doctor. I just don't want to see her right now. Any help and suggestions would be very helpful and maybe insightful.
