Like "I guess that being 77 years and on Medicare, is a big advantage! At least I have a Dr. I just see him every 3 months but try to do as he says, diet and exercise, and I am gradually getting BS down, IF I take my med. Metformin 750mg once a day, about noon, when I am up and eating good--It has now been 3 years so am afraid it is here to stay, at least for awhile. Maybe as I pull myself up and out of this horrible depression, it will start to back off, but till then, I am keeping better track and trying to comply. Pat Roth"
