Hi I was just diagnosed with type 2 diabetes and am a bit worried about what I should be doing. i have bEen told that I should lose weight and given a leaflet but nothing else. i know that people with diabetes usually test blood regularly. Is this something that I should be doing? I am also worried about work as I have been feeling really ill and and am worried that I am going to struggle to do my job properly as really dizzy and tired. I am going to make the lifestyle changes suggested but this will surely take time before it has an impact on my symptoms??? I don't want to lose my job.
