Sorry you have had such problems with doctors, Peter. I'm not sure if any of us really get the correct information at diagnosis. I was only 240 at dx and didn't get much different info than you. When I asked about testing they told me it was totally optional for Type 2's. It wasn't until I got online and met a lot of other diabetics that I found out the real story. I had to go in and ask for metformin and then I had to ask to increase it 3 times. Since my insurance doesn't pay for any strips I have to go online and buy my strips. It is expensive but worth the price of my health. Unfortunately I am one of those who still need medication despite low carb diet and a very normal weight. But I'm OK with that as long as I can see those low HbA1c's in the low 5's.
