Been diagnosed diabetic type 2 for 3 months but probably had it for longer before it was found.. cannot tolerate Metformin so on Alogliptin which is much gentler.. However my tummy is now huge!. I feel like I am going to explode and am equivalent to 8 months pregnant in looks... I feel like I am just getting bigger everyday.. I am vegetarian on a low carb diet but have a lot of health issues, CPAP, leg ulcers, high BP etc.. no-one seems bothered.. I try and excercise gently but have severe back injuries from past accidents and cannot move the legs and feet much. please help.. does anyone else feel like they are having a baby... am 55 and post menopausal with normal thyroid.. have run out of ideas and am getting scared my 5'2" cannot carry 25 stone much longer :(

The very unhelpful GP has said I am a candidate for a Gastric bypass knowing full well that my lungs are scarred from pleurisy and the CPAP danger with Asthma is a danger for sedation.. rather than help the problem he has gone straight down the op route. Not happening.. :( .. my question is still.. does anyone have any problem with severe Araphagia (swallowing air from the CPAP) and severe water retention and bloating when you have Diabetes 2.. there must be others out there who suffer this :(
I am also struggling with looking pregnant bab, I totally understand how you are feeling, I'm also post menopause n have copd n partial liver disease, am 5ft 4ins n have jst reach 16ston 5lbs, I'm due back at the doctors in February and will be disgussing this with my diabetes nurse. I'm fed up and feeling low in mood. My tummy also feels like it's growing every day. I hope things get sorted for you sweetheart, please feel free to friends request me on messenger, if not please let me know how thing are going for you and take care. X
