I was diagnosed a year ago in April of 2012 as a Type 2 Diabetic after having a hysterectomy. The Doctor and a nurse told me the diagnosis and I was not too surprised. I was having some symptoms the summer before but I thought it was due to the shots I was taking to rid or shrink the fibroids. The biggest fibroid was wrapped around my uterus and in turn that was pressing on my bladder…hence going to the bathroom a lot. My mother, a couple of her sisters, and some other relatives are/were diabetic also…so again I was not surprised.
