Hello

I am new here although I have had Type 2 Diabetes myself for just over a year now, but my Dad has had it a very long time and has had some small complications, caused by acumalative other health issues, for the past year.

I was just diet controlled until this week when I have now been prescribed Metformin tablets which I started yesterday! I am on 1 a day (which I take with lunch) for 2 weeks then it increases to 2 a day (lunch and dinner). Then a trip to the diabetes clinic to see how I am getting on and any further adjustments.

I am also attending a 'Food for thought' course which starts next week (a once a week course for 5 days consisting of a 2 1/2 hr session, then follow ups with diaticial on regular basis to check progress), but that was, coincidentaly, not linked to the diabetes but other health problems as I am taking Cholesterol, high blood pressure and medication for my Ankylosing Spondilitis (AS).

As for me im 37, female and live in West Sussex!


Any more info requires just ask!

Thanks

Heddwen :eek:
