Well, not by my sister!!! lol
She keeps insisting that she too has thyroid trouble, but apart from the weight, she has no other symptoms.
She has been drinking a lot and peeing too.
Her bloods have revealed that she has type 2 diabetes and that her thyroid is perfect (0.5 range 0.2-4.2)
So now mum is harping on about how her dad (grandad) was type 1 diabetic and it runs in the family, and how poorly her one and only child is. (my brother and I call her the one and only as she was the only one wanted, and we were 'neglected' by mum once little sis arrived)
I have explained to mum that type 2 is lifestyle condition and not usually genetic, and that her reliance on RedBull and other energy drinks may have had a contribution. Mum ranted that sis watched what she ate was a 'little overweight' (yeah, like the titanic was a little boat) I explained as calmly as I could that both sis and I are actually classed as morbidly obese, and that is why I keep getting the lecture on type 2 diabetes off the docs etc at every darn hospital appointment. I think I have got through to her, as I know about type 2 as mum-in-law was diagnosed years ago, and I went with her to all her appts and to see the diabetic dietitian and she was doing great and lost a lot of weight too. Pity she no longer follows the rules, and piled more weight on than she lost and has now migrated into type 1 and has to inject insulin. She was told at the time she was diagnosed type 2 that is she followed the rules and ate healthily, there was a possibility of reverse the condition.
Felt like banging my head against the wall at times, as she wasnt for listening properly.
Ah well, what am I supposed to know?? lol
