i have just been diagnosed as being diabetic. At Xmas 2017 my Hba1c came back as 63 mmol/ mol. This was significantly worse than the 44 mmol/ mol last year. I was feeling really grotty at Xmas. Fatigued, spaced-out, anxious, dry mouth, dry eyes, headaches, etc... I have now lost one or two stones (still need to lose another 4 stones) and think my condition has improved and had 55 mmol/l HBa1c result back this week, so things going to plan. I still feel rough if I do not eat regularly and have now incorporated some complex carbs in my protein/ salad/ fruit/ veg diet - brown rice, whole grain bread and pasta, which I think I need. I do much, much more exercise daily: gym, pool and walking. I am seeing the Doc and nurse this week and don't know whether to accept Metformin. Will Metformin help me lose my tiredness and other symptoms such as dry mouth and how bad are the side-effects. How long does it take to kick-in? Any help and feedback would be appreciated...thanks. Will try to lose much more weight. Andy
