Hello Ellie,

interested to know you live near Nelson.

We recently gained NZ Residency (not permanent, just 10 years come and go) and one of our favourite spots is the area around Takaka.

So waving from the UK but familiar with your home ground.

Regards

So my Hba1c 3 months ago was 60, they upped my Metformin to 2 tablets, twice a day. Called for another Hba1c, down to 54. NOW put on Jardiance 10mg once a day.... Feeling quite fed up.
