Hello, I was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes 17/12/21 with a hba1c of 108. Doctor called and diagnosed over the phone and had an appointment day. Given Metformin to take 3 a day after 3 weeks with a photo copy of Diabetes type 2 blurb to read. Non the wiser in all honesty and have been told I've been referred to my local diabetes clinic. Does anyone know what will happen at the clinic, will I need to test my blood glucose levels, what diet changes should I be making before clinic appointment? I know nothing about diabetes as there's none in the family at all, even the GP was surprised there's no diabetes in the family.So confused.
