Hi I'm 39 and have just been diagnosed with Type 2. Recent bloods have been quite high so started on Metformin 500mg 2x daily. So far, not so bad. Blood seeems to be stable, but high based on given figures. My dad is type 1, my mum was type 2 and I had gestational with my youngest so no surprise. really. Still slightly dazed by the confirmation and working hard to try and understand the condition as its so much more than I realised..
