Hello,I am new to this site and my name is Mark H. I am 40yrs old from Salem, OR. I was told I had type 2 Diabities in 2008 and have been taking Oral meds for it until I went in for sugar blood work. Got the report bck and was told I was gonna have to start insuline. When I start using my insuline it was just at bedtime 100units now I am down to 50 units but, I am also on 2000mg of Metphormin.
But, I would like to go back to 2000 when I was at a weight of over 600lbs and was old by my doc that I was in good health minus 2 back operations. I started to lose weight and things went down hill instead of up hill. My back got worse and I became a Diabetic. I now have Many health issues mainly physical. I have 2 balging Disks in lower back, I have Degenerative Disk Desease, Hep C, Diabities amongst other physical problems and mental health issues. All this started when I started to lose the weight and I dont know what to do. I have been on all the pain meds u can name and now I am on 3600mg of Beta Blocker(which is the max dose) and it is starting not to work. and I dont know what to do. I have my good days and I have my bad days but, more and more I am haveing bad days. I used to beable to walk with just a cane and now I am walking with 2 arm crutches (likes those of MS people use). So any help would be nice.
