I've been feeling ill for months and getting worse. Extremely thirsty blurred vision, frequent urination, feeling hung over & dizzy etc... feeling sick barely able to drink anything other than water and an occasional cup of tea. About a month ago was told I was borderline with HbA1c of 46 having had an earlier reading of 48. After this I have really behaved myself and not eaten a takeaway or had any fizzy pop or beer for over a month... I've eaten healthy fresh cooked meals cutting carbs and switching to wholewheat bread, pasta & brown rice I've lost 1 stone 4 pounds Despite this I've felt worse than ever and barely able to keep awake and now back at HbA1c 48 and feeling truly shocking. I'm now diagnosed as Type 2 and starting metformin and am waiting for the results of a GAD test. Am I going to get worse and need insulin??
