First time posting on the Forum. I have been diagnosed as Type 2 for over 10 years. 52 year old male, 2 1/2 stone overweight , having already lost 2 1/2 to date. After a number of months with stomach problems I spent Christmas Eve and Day vomiting. Here's the fun part! In doing so I ended up with a bulging disc, pressure on a nerve and continued pain in a hip flexor. As soon as I can lie face down without pain I will be going for a MRI scan. My Hba1c was already high, at over 8 ( in old money). My morning reading is seldom in single figures, usually 10 to 12, but my ability to take any activity is very limited. I can painfully get in to the swimming pool and walk up and down a few times but that is it. My doctor and physio have prescribed gentle stretches, which I do 4 times a day, painfully. I do not want to end up with blood sugar problems to add to the physical issues and would welcome any advice, recommendations and ideas from anyone who has found themselves in a similar situation. many thanks.
