Davey here Aka / Thumbless.

45, Scotland/UK, Male T2, 2000mg or is it 20000000mg Metformin daily.

Diagnosed T2 5 weeks ago last Friday.

Took it as a huge shock, went into denial and blamed everybody except my self.

Reading about similar experiences from diabetics has been an enourmous help.

Now i am taking it as a minor incoveniance.

In the U.K we are advised to eat Starchy food in our diet like Potatoes, Rice and pasta.

Ask a doctor about Atkins or low carbing and they would take a fit.

To be honest i live, am hooked on these foods so it will be a battle to reduce them to acceptable levels.

By the way i need a spare kidney, anybody got one, or a pancreas.

Davey.

Hello, and welcome to the forum. I was diagnosed with T2 23 or 24 years ago, you'll get over the shock. They found it by accident, during a routine physical. They said "oh, your a diabetic, and I said no I'm not, and they said, yes you are" Good luck.

Hi John talk about Deja-vu 24 years ago.

I went for a Blood pressure check/Cholestrol check 5 weeks ago thinking ok i was overweight might mave high cholestrol.

You guessed it yes you are no im not.

Took me a week to learn all i could as knowledge is power and get over the shock.

Problem was young indian doctor who had only been in the practice a week obviously never saw a patient in denial and probably got a bigger shock than i did.

I took my partner who was a midwife who hold me down and stopped me running away.

All the best.

Davey.
