I was diagnosis with Type 2 diabetes 1 month ago and this whole thing is a bit scary. I received a phone call after having routine blood work done from my physical. It was all done over the phone I was told that i had type 2 and needed to start taking 500mg metformin once a day for 3 months and come back and be retested to see if it is managed that was it. So here I am totally oblivious to this thing, I started researching and found this site. I felt that I need a support system other than my family who has no idea of what i am dealing with. No one in my family has diabetes. Should i go out an get a monitor to test my levels everyday? I have read that diet and exercise can help. Can someone give me some pointers.
