    Type of diabetes:
    Type 2
    Treatment type:
    Tablets (oral)


    2019 Nov - Glipizide 1.75mg (1/4 tab) am and pm. Good numbers (except for recent blip!!!)
    Update: July 2018 - Lost total 20 Kgs Still more to go
    Oops!!! March 2018 - Back on Glipizide 5 mg twice a day as 'fell off wagon' and now getting back on track. Hope to reduce Glipizide again, and then stop, in due course...
    Spring 2017 - No longer taking Glipizide
    Spring 2017 - discovered Vit B12 deficient [likely due to Metformin and antacids long-term!]
    Self-injecting B12 - feeling great now!!!
    Diet - 'Reduced' Carbs/ Increased Fats and lost 18Kgs so far. Still more to lose
    Metformin 1gm x twice a day; Glipizide (10mg before breakfast; 5mg before evening meal), as from 10 Nov 2016
    Type 2 / Dx 2009
