I have been diagnosed with DM-2 about a year and a half back. DM-2 for me was stress induced mainly on account of the profession. I am continually on Glycomet 500 mg twice a day and make it a point to walk at a fast pace about 5 KM a day in the morning. I was weighing about 74 Kg before I started on this but now I am a comfortable 68 Kg for my height of 5' 3". I feel good after a day's walk and sprightly throughout the day; the days when I miss the morning walk I become irritated and sleepy and not able to concentrate on my work. Oh! BTW am 59 years old. I hope this will keep me company till my end. I am happy what I do and how I do.
