Hi, Anon.

Thank you for posting

Being in a wheelchair is challenging if you are trying to lose weight. It's important to stick to the eating plan your doctor recommends for diabetes. There are also exercises you can do from your wheelchair, (check with your doctor first) that may help with weight loss. More information below.
