Thank you for posting this, Im insulin resistant and overweight. The weight gain from my medicine makes things even worse, sometimes it feels like Im fighting again too much on my own.
If Im overweight then my prognosis is bad but the medicine for my cancer MAKES me overweight. How does one combat that?
