Before lockdown my type 2 diabetes was borderline and I was feeling hypo in the afternoon.I was on 1 metformin twice a day so the diabetic nurse put me down to 1as my blood results were okay. I was meant see the nurse three months later but because of lockdown everything stopped.I felt ok anyway. I eventually got my annual check at 18 months. Then all panic broke lose at the surgery. The day after my blood was taken I had two calls from GPS and also the diabetic nurse. My blood sugar levels were so high I could have gone into a coma. My metformin was gradually increased and I was taking regular blood sugar readings,I hadn't needed to before. My blood sugar remained in the 20s so the nurse added gliclazide 80mgs which brought my sugar down to 15.I'm now taking gliclazide 40mg and 4metformin. Sugars are averaging at 10 now.I'm being started on a weekly injection don't know what one yet. I didn't pick up any symptoms during the 18 months as other medications have the sa!I'm side effects. The only thing that was different was I lost weight but had put that down to shielding and not snacking as I use too. I'm wondering if this deterioration could have been pick up if they had reviewed me at 3 months as they were going too before covid. My Ha1c was 13.5 when I went 6weeks ago now it's 9. I can't understand how quickly my type 2 diabetes changed in a short period of time as I had been borderline for 10years and was losing weight before this happened.
