I was just diagnosed about 5 weeks ago with type 2 diabetes.This is the kind where diet and exercise are supposed to keep it at bay(and either 1 or 2 metformin pills a day). It is not fun going from eating/drinking whatever whenever you wanted to not being able to do that. I am getting used to eating foods with no flavor and not being able to graze all the time but I need to exercise more than what I do.I was taking 2 metformin a day but had bouts of nausea so my doc said ok to just take one a day for now. I have lost 10 pounds since I started this.The main thing that sucks is having to prick my finger every night for the blood meter. You just have to get use to being more active and counting the carbs on everything you eat. Any other diabetics out there???
