Postby TeejThorne » Fri Jul 11, 2014 9:22 am

Doea anyone else have diabetes and Fibro? if so can anyone give me any pointers on what I should be watching out for I have only been diagnosed with Fibro in the last week, I have IBS too and on lots of meds for my diabetes which is almost impossible to control .... I was wondering if this was the fibro causing the problems?

I don't have diabetes but I do have ibs, underactive thyroid & arthritis. What problems are you having hun? My arthritis has recently restarted from being in remission. I spoke to my nurse and she said my arthritis makes my fibro worse, so not sure if other conditions can make it worse too.
I am a fibro fighter not a fibro sufferer. I will keep fighting from the minute I get up til the minute I go to bed.

Hi there, I have both plus a million and one other things :roll: My diabetes is fairly well controlled but the only thing that may be an issue between them would be the tiredness, fatigue, as both cause it. I had a problem with keeping blood sugars under control and ended up on insulin.So it might be worth looking at.
Good luck :-)
