I am a 74 year old male and was diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes in April 2015 and put on Metformin 500mg x 4 subsequently reduced to x 2 after 3 months after my next blood test in August.
As I have had Pernicious Anaemia for 45 years as a result of stomach surgery in 1959 I am well used to the exhaustion caused by that, however now with diabetes, I seem never to have any energy and feel so tired all day long.
My diet has been "approved" by a dietitian and I do 20-25 minutes a day on a mini exercise bike. I'm six feet four inches tall and weigh twelve and a half stones (having "lost" half a stone) in the last seven months
I sometimes feel as if I'm verging on the edge of a hypo, but as I've never had one before wonder if it is possible to have one with Type 2 and on such a low dose of Metformin.
