Last year, it was confirmed that after 8 years of living with type 2 diabetes, that I don’t have type 2 diabetes. This article will focus on what I learned from that experience.

Testing and diabetes

The first thing I learned was that I needed to ask for further testing. When I was diagnosed with diabetes in 2011, I was in the hospital for six days and upon being discharged, I had to see a long list of specialists. I saw a cardiologist for my heart, an ophthalmologist for the blurred vision I had developed, I saw a nutritionist for food education, and an endocrinologist for my diabetes treatment. I assumed that I had every test known to mankind. I was wrong.
