Short intro and a couple of questions. I am a 49 year old male, living in California's High Desert. I am married with two kids and two grandchildren. (One more on the way!) I like to play my Guitars and read, as well as play around on the computer. I received my diagnosis last week of type II diabetes. It came as a bit of a surprise, actually. I feel physically pretty much like I always feel. I am tired all the time, but I always thought that was due to my insomnia. Other than that, no complaints. The cause was my love of sweets. I have to say I ate far too many sweets and now it finally caught up with me. The Doc told me he expects to see me at the Gym regularly. (He goes to the same Gym as me) Of course I have to change my eating habits to exclude most sweet treats. That is the big problem for me, as it probably is for most, especially since I have felt no bad symptoms. Any suggestions in this department would be appreciated, Also, the Doc put me on Metformin, which is supposed to help weight loss. Have any of you found that to be true?
