Many of us who’ve been on psychiatric drugs (really any psych drug) have insulin resistance even if we’ve not developed diabetes yet. It’s worth learning about even if you’ve not gotten to the point where your doctor calls your issues diabetes.

I have had significant metabolic issues and many of them are much better since I changed my diet (and got off the offending medications). I continue to tweak things and learn more and more. Much of what I’ve learned about diet and nutrition is collected on this archive page: Nutrition and gut health

These are all good introductory posts on issues surrounding blood sugar, hypoglycemia and diabetes.
