Well plucked up the courage to post so here goes !!!!!
I was diagnosed 10 months ago , had a 10 minute consultation with the diabetic nurse at my GP surgery . Not helpful just "loose weight and exercise" and " you'll get an annual check up" . Only helpful thing was I signed up for 2x3 hour learning sessions . I attended these and was given a booklet , half the info I should have been provided with I didn't know ..since remedied ! Has a 3 month nightmare trying to take Metformin including the slow release kind . Eventually I was given Sitagliptin which seems to suit me ok . I've had 1 blood test and nothing else ! I feel sort of " Abandoned " . Took the pills and thought they would sort it ..until.... I logged on here ! Read a newbie post by Daisy . Yikes ...I've been cutting carbs , lost not a pound . I struggle something awful to exercise due to heart disease and a herneated disc in my back , I try though .
Do I need to get a meter? Get more pro active at the GP surgery ?
Any advice much appreciated ...I guess at least I'm not being an ostrich anymore since I decided to post ...thats a positive . Thanks in advance
