I've only been recently diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes in the last 2 days. I must I'm angry, confused and wondering how it happened so fast, especially when I had blood test done before Christmas. What happened in 3 months? In any case, I've been prescribed metformin hcl er. When my doctor phoned me to say my sugar level was above 700 and I needed to go to the emergency, everything he said after that was a blur. I was ignorant of what my sugar level should be and I had to have him repeat again. While in the hospital, I'm still trying to grasp what's happened to me while the doctors and nurses poke my fingers and try to explain to me what's going on. I'm having a hard time with this, it's all so overwhelming for me, I need to know how to get through this.
