Hi, I was initially diagnosed with Type 2 after a company medical in October with a blood sugar at 91mg/dl, up from 42mg/dl the previous year (I hope I'm getting the terminology right); I then had the test confirmed by my GP about a month later and it had gone up to 105mg/d, he immediately proscribed 2 x 500mg Metformin twice a day and 1 x Alvastatin per day. I haven't had any fasting or finger prick tests at all. In retrospect it obviously made sense of a lot of symptoms and issues in the months before the medical and although I found the side effects from the Metformin were initially very unpleasant I'm mostly adjusted to it now and I do generally feel a lot better. I do worry that I'm still suffering some symptoms but I assume I'm tired and making excuses for normal fatigue, etc. (I have two young children) but things are definitely better since I started the medication. I have had another blood test a couple of weeks ago and a visit to the Dietician and am now down to 82mg/dl (any amount down is good I assume but I have no idea if this is a large or small drop), however, she seemed to think I may have been misdiagnosed and may actually be type 1, so as of today I've been referred to the Endocrinologist for further tests. I've found a lot of the information from the NHS a bit vague and am always a bit wary of online medical advice. I should probably clarify I'm 39 man, 6'6" and 88kg (although I was very overweight until my early thirties), I exercise regularly and I didn't eat particularly unhealthily until my diagnosis. I have been pretty strict with myself since I found out (Christmas was a struggle) but I've been told I'm doing the right things by the dietician and I thought I was adjusting to the situation but I am a bit worried about being re-diagnosed and what that might mean. Now I get to the end of my little essay I'm not 100% sure why I started, I think I just wanted to get it out of my head or perhaps I just want some advice and reassurance. It's been a frustrating experience since diagnosis but I suppose if that's the worst thing I can say I'm probably in a better situation than a lot of others.
