Q: Hello, my name is felicia columbo i am from Mountain top,pa and i have a very important question. Ok just a few years ago i was at my dermatologist for my acne and my mom had told him about discoloration on my arm and he told me it was the early signs of diabeties, i have had it since i was 5. Well, soon after that i was diagnost with type 2 diabeties, and my doctor had told me that my weight is too much for my height and age so my mom had told him i have been having issues with my weight all my life, and that she didnt and i didnt know why, and that my dad was in the vietnam war and exposed to agent orange, and now has Multiple Sclerosis, so then my dr had told me that i might have a rare weight didorder but not to sure... does this make any sence to you at all? thanks
