I am female and live in Liverpool with my husband and two black cats; I am a Christian and enjoy walking, playing the piano, swimming, if I get the chance , reading, writing novels and listening to interesting podcasts. I was diagnosed diabetic a month ago, after being referred to my doctor by my optician, This was due to the fact that my eyesight had changed dramatically, My blood sugar was really high, 135. I was put on metformin and gliclazide and my readings have come right down , if anything they can now be on the low side. I.ve had blurred vision when I try to read for about two weeks and the glasses I was given are now usless, strangley, my distance vision has improved. Feeling a bit depressed about it all.
