- Relationship to Diabetes
- Type 2
Recently diagnosed with type 2 and in the same week suffered a mini stroke TIA so a rather traumatic time. Recovered well from TIA although my blood pressure meds upped significantly by my stroke consultant. Now trying to get to grips with my diabetes but struggling as I have had no support from my GP surgery and scant info from the diabetic nurse. On metformin twice a day but having significant tingling and numbness in both hands and feet. When I rang nurse she said this would settle down but it's worsening by the day. I have lost all trust in my GP as they didn't help when my B P was out of control. Not sure what to do or where to seek advice or help.
