Re: nerves are setting in

There is a study thread pinned to the top of the board. I participated in it and it was very helpful in making my decision.

I have no cancer history so chose to keep mine. I am type 2 but have never heard hormones are a problem for diabetics. I personally can't tolerate them but have always been that way. In fact, my dr. tried me on progesterone before surgery just to try to reduce my bleeding while we were waiting for me to have a break in my schedule to get my hyst done.

Re: nerves are setting in

This is something you really need to discuss with your doctor. He or she should be able to tell you if there are any issues with HRT and diabetes. Don't necessarily believe what you find on the Internet regarding HRT and health. It is really an individual decision, and very dependent on your health and family history. Has your doctor recommended you keep your ovaries?
