I had my diagnosis of T2 diabetes and raised cholesterol over the phone three weeks ago. I was a bit confused about whether the diagnosis was T2 or pre-diabetes, and I wasn't given any numbers at that stage, just told I needed to take statins and cut carbs for three months to see if I could bring my blood sugar down. On Friday I went in to see the GP about repeat prescription for statins, and he told me I was right on the borderline between prediabetes and T2 diabetes, which is obviously why I was picking up a bit of a mixed message on the phone. Obviously, this makes no difference to the recommendation to cut carbs and lose weight, and he's referred me to Desmond, but I've no idea when that appointment will come through. He asked me if I was testing my levels and I told him the testing kit I'd ordered had just arrived. I need to get to grips with the testing routine, but what with dietary changes, worrying about weight loss, and trying to understand the instructions, I just feel as if I'm in a huge mental fog about everything. Just looking for a bit of reassurance really - does it get easier?
