  1. I have just been diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes, It wasn't any surprise as my Dad diabetic and my eating habits where terrible. I have started changing my eating habits already and after less than a week have lost 7lbs, which is amazing and can only help.

    My concerns today are that I feel weird, dizzy, light headed and just not myself...!!! I only started taking my medication on Tuesday this week and not sure if these feeling are normal. I've rang my GP and waiting for a call back.

    Should I be worried? Is this normal?
