I thought I'd reintroduce myself as it's been a long time since I posted here. I'm 35, and was diagnosed two and a half years ago with Type 2. After being relatively in control with Lixisenatide injections and Metformin, a serious gum infection (now treated) knocked my levels out of whack and they never returned to my normal. This week I dragged myself in to see my DSN when my fasting levels hit 24.5mmol, and I was promptly put on Gliclazide and given a machine to test ketones. The Gliclazide has worked almost immediately, and today has been the first day I've felt like I've got any energy in months. However, I'm aware that Gliclazide causes weight gain, so I need to be here and need to be regimented in order to avoid that.
