Hello, diagnosed 1st August after requesting blood samples due to me quitting caffeine. Seems caffeine was least of my problems, and as I had no symptoms of diabetes this was a shock. Type2. Nearly had to get treated for a broken chin as mine hit the doctors floor. Metformin,lasted 3 days I'm a roofer so working above folk on ye olde Met wasn't an option. So I am going diet and exercise route. Working so far! I'm glad this forum exists because me and the wife have been avid readers since my diagnosis mainly because I've kinda felt marooned by the health professionals. Thank you folks.
