  1. Hi there,

    Am type 2 diabetic. My system can't take any more meds pushed into it by the Drs as I have had severe side effects. If I say I know all the facilities in my local shopping centre you will understand what I mean. I have put up with these for years because I thought it was all "part and parcel" but now I am going to the hospital on 15th so they can discuss non insulin injections with me. I have read up about these various injections and it seems as though they have the side effects which I am trying to avoid. More seriously is the fact that they could cause more dangerous side effects. Anybody out there got any thoughts/advice etc. Would be great to hear from you.
