just diagnosed with diabetes

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.

should I start insulin or not?

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.

Thirst and diabetes

I’ve just checked NHS direct and it seems I should go and see my gp. But I just wanted to ask is it usual to feel thirsty all the time when developing diabetes?

Metformin and insulin

I’ve recently been started on insulin after being on metformin tablet for some years. My doctor has asked me to continue metformin as well as insulin injections. Are others being told to do the same? I don’t understand why I need to be on metformin when I’ve agreed to start insulin injections.
