I have been newly diagnosed and I'm devastated and not at all surprised because I'm overweight and in denial. I have not been given much in the way of advice from my doc just lose weight and take pills. I am on Mavik , water pills for BP and now on metformin. I don't have a blood glucose monitor nor would I know how to use it if I had one. I am emotionally drained at this point, I can't sleep and I am so confused. I do know that I don't want to die and things need to change I just don't know where to start.
