Hello Gracicles, I was diagnosed just over a month ago but only met with the nurse to discuss my results yesterday. My Hba1c was 64 and I'm on 500g of metformin twice a day. I'm also cutting the carbs and trying to lose weight. I know I have to get those levels down and I have to engage with the support being offered to me. I completely understand where you are coming from though, it can be so easy to just slip into denial - which was my initial response. I do find this forum to be supportive - just knowing you are not alone is a great help. I'm finding the shame of realising that I have done this to myself to be the hardest thing to overcome though.
