Scary is the only word that comes to mind ten years ago. I was 20. My body was functioning fine and it just stopped. Doctors were not able to tell me why. Turns out I have genetic predisposition that messes with my insulin. It is a metabolic syndrome that messes with all your body functions. Makes it harder not impossible to have kids, increases the risk of type 2 diabetes, causes changes in your appearance somewhat and no real medicine can fix it. What works is eating healthy diet that is friendly with the condition Moderate excercise, reducing stress. Kids are possible just if the condition not under control you may have issues. I found all this out with help of a naturalpath. My thoughts around the condition were well this sucks, no one can explain to me what happening to my body and lots of tears. I was also going through an abusive relationship which could partically triggered this predisposition as well as diet, plan b and other environmental factors.’ Anger immediately followed fear. Anger at god specifically. My dream always is to have a family being told it maybe harder now for my body was very difficult to hear. I just cried and cried till I met a natural path I still work with to balancing all the hormones (insulin) messes up everything and told me how common this condition is. One and Five women have it. I was able to control the syndrome but maintaining control is hard and currently on going process making some permeant life style changes. I checked out fine to having kids, no diabetes etc. Meaning symptoms are under control (mostly). I work each and every day to eat right, exercise. I take a products to help with Insulin resistance and some other vitamins.
