Hearing this somewhat surprising news pissed me off royally. Even though it runs in my family I thought I was immune, based on magical thinking I guess, but also on the fact that I wasn't overweight, ate fairly well and exercised regularly.
The good news is that after three months, I've made enough changes without medication that my numbers are fantastic. Seems I wasn't really eating all that well, I wasn't getting my heart rate up enough when I exercised and I was overweight for me, even though most people thought I was fine.
And I feel better now! I never realized the number of problems this disease was creating. But I'm still pissed every time I have to pass on the pasta.
