Hi, I was just diagnosed with diabetes type 2 last Friday. I'm having dizzy spells and light headed today. Have to make appointment with dietician today.

I just joined as well and was diagnosed in April. I found that I had feelings like that as well when I was first diagnosed but once I started to get blood sugars down near normal I started to feel a little better. Good luck to you!!

Welcome to the family!
Fasten your seat belt, diabetes care, personal learning and management can take you on a fast and bumpy ride sometimes, but your desire to learn more about diabetes will be your driver, and the best thing about this journey is this, you will never have to go it alone!

Hi lou and welcome to the family. You will get a wealth of information here. If you know how, test your blood sugar. When my blood sugar gets low, I get dizzy. When it gets too high, I get a headache. However, diabetes is different for everyone. Call your doctor and talk to him/her and tell them about your problem. Dizziness is nothing to play as it can also be a sign of stroke or heart attack.
