    Had my feet and eyes checked within 5 weeks of being told I was T2D all came back pucker got very low cholesterol blood pressure goes through the roof only when at the doctors/hospital normal BPM 60 resting 40 exercise 80-120 BPM. Had no other appointments other then what I make with my doc and to be honest the only reason I go back to see him is because of the meds that was doing me more trouble (mood swing headaches bad tummy all the time also the tablets wasn’t even dissolved by the time I had to go!) sorry for being crude) the last year has been a total nightmare since being told I’m diabetic.

    Hi @rayhigginson
    Sorry for delay in answering you With the help and advice from this site Diabetes need not be a nightmare you and everyone else has to learn how to control it and not let it control you,having said that we are only human and we all have hiccups from time to time but we have to get back into it because diabetes can throw up some awful problems if you don't . Wishing you all the best in this journey we all have to take. Regards Kathleen

    Considering I was off the top of the meter a year ago gone July
    The change in insulin and the DAFNE course plus cutting down on carbs (but not all carbs - I still eat carby foods) has seen me drop from a peak of 59.4 (hospital) to single figure readings

    Ok I get the odd double figures and odd hypos now and then but I can’t be perfect nor expect all the time

    I’m happier and that’s all that counts right now

    Wishing you well Kathleen

    59.4 I can’t even imagine that...
    Your incredible reduction to single figures is amazing.

    Hi. My BG this morning was 5.8. Hope everyone has been doing well, and not getting into to much trouble.;) I’m heading to Toronto again tomorrow. I’m seeing a top neurologist in my country Tuesday to see if they can sort out some weakening I’ve had in my legs and feet. Hopefully it isn’t to serious, and that a course of action can be taken.

    Staying over night. My appointment is at Toronto General, and we’re staying at the Delta Chelsea which is right next to it. Just have to figure out where to eat.

    Presuming you are on meformin the tummy problems are not a surprise. I once went to a lecture by a consultant diabetologist. Talking about the side effects of metformin he described them as ranging from mild indigestion to explosive diarrhoea ( his words not mine ). Can vouch for that personally until i changed to the sustained release form of metformin

    It seems as if I’m allergic to metformin as had normal,slow release,and extra slow as well so have been taken off of it and put on a different tablet called sitagliptin
