Hello, My name is Tori I am a 38 year old mother of three children. My youngest dd Patience 6 years old was diagonsed with insulin resistance last year. We had discovered that because she was gaining weight very fast. Like 30 extra pounds a year. By age five she had reached almost 100 pounds. (please know we were taking her to different dr.s) She and our family were guests on the Dr. Phil show. Since the program she has lost 25 pounds. And is on a very low sugar meal plan. I myself have type 2. So I am here to learn for her. She is still under the guidance of a nutrionist that has helped her very much. I really need support in ideas in how to handle this new way of life for her. For a year she has started the journey. But I was hoping to join for ideas on how to handle holidays,and every day life for her so she does not feel so different than the other kids. I hope it is ok that I have joined. I know my daughter does not have diabetes. And I am fighting my best to insure she doesnt. I have type 2.
