I lost 50 pounds without trying and I was thirsty ALL the time. My mom was a nurse and was horrified that she didn't make the diagnosis. She thought it was a thyroid problem.

I was diagnosed 8 days before my 16th birthday. I had a grandpa type 2 diabetes but the doctor is guessing that my immune system just shut down. I got chicken pox and then valley fever within the time span of two months. After that, I got diabetes. I think my body just said, "I'm done."

I did not know that you were diabetic Vickie. Getting it as a result of your chemo is even stinkier than being diagnosed with the big D on Valentines Day like me! Sorry.
