This community is for people with an interest in diabetes mellitus.
What's on your mind? You can start a discussion on any topic you like, subject of course to our code of conduct.
I am hoping that the fabulous community here will post replies on this thread about the subject in the title, or possibly provide links to people's blogs on the subject, this topic could then hopefully be something that could be shown to gather support from family members, it could be helpful to newly diagnosed families. Thanks so much for reading and for posting if you are able. https://www.youtube.com/v/EskUNarI2BE?rel=0

I was just diagnosed last week with diabetes. My drive to work was tough as my vision was blurry. At this point, wearing my glasses in worse than not wearing them. I was already having difficult seeing close up with glasses due to my age, but now it is impossible to see close up. Once this is all under control, will my vision be "ok"? I really don't want permanent eye damage if I can avoid it. Thank you.

Hi, I have become used to Metformin after 7 years. I am incontinent at least once a week and I am not happy, My feet are going numb and I'm frightened. I want to be on insulin. I want low BG's not the high ones I get now. Can somebody advise me whether I should start insulin or not? Thanks.
I have a chest infection, I don't know how dangerous it is for me to have them, but my diabetes nurse said that I can be put back into hospital if untreated. How dangerous can it be? Do I need to go to the doctors or a walk in centre? I am doing the same stuff I did before I went into hospital, (heavy breathing, headaches, dizziness, not eating). I am really scared as I don't want to be in hospital again.

Eating a healthy, balanced diet when you are living with diabetes can be challenging. So we thought it might be helpful to members of this community if we started a discussion thread dedicated to sharing diabetes-friendly recipes. What's your favourite diabetic recipe?
