So I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes last Friday, wasn't really given that much information about how I was supposed to deal with this but was started on a titrating dose of metformin. Thankfully I discovered diabetes.co.uk. I bought myself a blood glucose monitor and tried to follow a low carb diet, regularly monitored my blood sugars and over this 1st week they've averaged at 6.9 which I didn't think was too bad. Went back to see the practice nurse this afternoon and was told that following my blood test last week I have high cholesterol, issues with my liver and results that suggest I have coeliac disease and was told to book an appointment with the doctor to discuss these. Was also told I have high blood pressure and so will have to have a 24hour blood pressure monitoring thing. Again I wasn't really given any information, the nurse seemed dismissive of my blood sugar monitoring saying I would only need to do this for a short while. Obviously I googled coeliac disease when i got home and the information I found suggests that after I've had a positive blood test I'll have to have a biopsy to confirm this diagnosis. However it also stated that to ensure I get the correct results from the biopsy I can't eliminate gluten from my diet which messes up my low carb way of eating as I'd stopped having bread, pasta, rice and potatoes. My doctor's appointment isn't until the 23rd of May and I don't have to see the practice nurse for another 3months following my next blood test. Sorry for such a long 1st post but I just feel completely lost as to how I should be dealing with all of this. I know i need to lose a considerable amount of weight to become healthier and am aware that a lot of these health issues have been caused by my obesity, however I am where I am and I would really appreciate any advice I can get.
