Hello, my name is Jen and I was recently diagnosed with type 2 diabetes on Sept 2011. I know that type 2 diabetes runs in my fathers side of the family. I always figured it would just be a matter of time. Just didn't think it would happen this soon in my life. I'm trying my best to make the adjustments necessary to improve my health. I'm finding it difficult because of the limited support/understanding from my husband. Little things such as making meals is even becoming a challenge. I've been doing pretty well about cutting out the carbs the difficulty I'm having is eating my 3 meals and taking my meds at the same time everyday. I'm getting some exercise done but there are days where I'm so fatigued I can't push myself out of bed. Initially, the doctor prescribed me with Amaryl and Metformin, but the side effects became unbearable on the Met. I am still taking the Amaryl but instead of the Met I'm taking Glumetza. Still some side effects. Having trouble telling the difference between side effects or maybe a "bug", especially this week that its been real bad. Afraid they appear to be the warning signs for lactic acidosis, but not sure. I'm trying to learn to read my body to know when my sugar is high or low. This is just a lot of "new" for me right now. I'm dizzy all the time, confused. Nausea, vomiting and stomach problems. I'm afraid to go on insulin. The weight is coming off slowly which is a big plus. I'm hoping its gets easier, I just want to feel like myself again. Time will tell. I welcome any and all advice. Thanks!
