I am newly diagnosed, as of June 2014, my a1c was 7.2. I check my sugar levels 3 times a day, for the most part I never had a number past 240 my lowest was 64. I average 140-160. Just to give you an idea..
My question is in regards to your memory, I've been having LOTS of trouble this past month remembering anything that just happened. I was wondering if anyone else is experiencing the same? Also I would bring it to my drs attention but my nex appointment isn't for another 2 months I believe.
A little about myself, I'm 30 years old, no other diagnoses besides type 2 diabetes. I take metformin 500 mg a day. I live with my 12 yr old daughter. I am the sole provider of everything in my home. I'm so scared this may be something much more serious then it seems.
Also to give you an example of things I forget and never come back to mind unless its been brought up are such things like bills, I will believe I paid my bills until the turn off notice comes or the next bill comes with last months bill added to it. School meetings, doctor appointments, how much my rent is, the day of the month,…plenty more… Really worried over it. Please help if you can.
