the first doctor didn't make a big deal of it and I thought it didn't matter. Found out later it did matter. New doctor this year, diabetic nurse so things are getting better. B12 to help fatigue, reassessment of meds - it is getting better - should not have taken 12 years

Welcome to the family!! On this forum you will learn so much. Most of what you will learn is that you are not alone. Everyone here is supportive and will provide answers to your questions. Search the site for answers. Read the discussions and blogs for information. There are videos to help you understand diabetes and its treatment. Most of all there is family to talk to and vent to, if needed.
