Obviously I am new to this site, But I am looking forward to a long and happy time here. I was diagnoised back in the late 90"s and did fine up to about 2006. Then I got fed up, said the hell with it, and simply ignored the fact that I had diabetes. Fast forward to July 2011. I had a blister on my right foot that would not heal. I was thirsty, frequent urination, dry mouth at night, etc. So I made an appointment at the clinic I used to go to. Today I suspose I am doing better. I am on a min. dose of Metformin in the evening. I was for a while, however on a min dose of Glimepiride in the am, along with the Metaformin, and was doing great. I see the Doc. at the end of the month and will try to get me back on the Glimepiride, again. I am on an 1800cal., ADA type diet, and have a great dietician, and really not interested in making changes there. I have tons of questions, but that for another time.
