Was diagnosed in july and have only just seen a nurse for my first diabetic app. She told me symptoms i have are not due to the diabetes ( very frequent urination at night, drinking lots, dry mouth, blurry vision at times and just feeling generally grotty) yet the doctor said they are. Told they won't give prescription to self monitor.So much to take on board. On a very low budget and burying my head in the sand . . . Help . . . .
