Hello - I have been Dx now for 4 weeks and so am fairly new to Diabetes. I have type 2 and am on diaformin 500 x 2. My fasting bloods at diagnosis was 8.3 1 hr after gtt was 11 and 2 hours after GTT was 11.1
Am trying to cope with new diet etc and I have been told I need to reduce weight ( 15-20kgs) which is easier said than done.:(

Welcome to Diabetes Forum! I agree that it is difficult to lose weight. I had to reduce my daily carb intake to 130g per day and start exercising at least one hour per day to lose my weight. It took me a whole year to lose 26 pounds. I hope your diet and exercise go smoothly. It is a matter of being very patient and working very hard at your new routine until you have adjusted. Good luck to you! Ask all the questions you want.
