Hi all
« on: 24 January 2018, 01:32:03 PM »
Hi I’m Alan nearly 53. Diagnosed with diabetes three years ago. Started with meteor in then as that made me poorly another tablet no Gliclazide.
Sadly my levels on my machine showed spikes of 18 so they’ve put me on 5 x 40mg now. I was written off work for a week as I would with vulnerable children and had nothing to give.
I’m still, three hours after eating and taking meds getting readings of 12.7 and I’m really concerned.
Feeling awful, gone to bed, hope you guys can help.
