    In april 2011 i was diagnosed with type2 diabetes, and started to lose weight rapidly, from 14st to 11st uptill today.
    My GP sent me to my local hospital for tests, which were ultrasound scan on my stomach,a camera down my gullet, and several blood tests which all came back negative.
    Then the hospital doctor sent me for a MRI scan and showed a sizeable lump on the Pancreas, and had a Biopsy on it last thursday and awaiting results.
    Has anyone come across a problem like this.
    I am taking Metaformin 2 tablets twice a day, and my age is 71yrs old

    I hope your Dr can give you some answers soon. It must be worrying for you.

    My situation worked the other way around. I developed digestive problems more than 2 years ago and also had all these tests done. Underwent pancreatic surgery 2 years ago and was diagnosed with Diabetes 2 months ago.
    I understand your stress and anxiety.
    I am on Gliclazide and doing okay
