    Hi
    I am a type 2 diabetic diagnosed just over a month ago
    Thankfully my glucose levels are starting to come down but still quite high in the evening , overnight and then of course in the morning, so not sure if my meds should be increased will have to go back to the surgery.
    I have been reading the forum for a little while so thought I would introduce myself to you all.

    Hi Pheobe and welcome to the forum now that you have decided to say hello :) I think you probably know your way around by now but ask any questions you need to if you don't find what you want to know. The forum monitors have put together some basic advice for newly diagnosed diabetics. I'm not sure if you've already seen it but here is the link - I think it will help you to control your levels:

    Thanks I will do.
    It is so nice to speak to fellow diabetics who understand what you are going through , my family are very supportive but they just do not have a clue how I feel.
