Well after a 6 month wait I finally got to see the diabetic nurse.
She told me a few things I didn't know such as exactly when to take my meds in relation to food - no one had ever gone through this.
There is also a new diabetes medi that has to be injected but not only controls blood sugar but also loses weight ... that will be the next thing if things aren't more under control when I see her in 6 weeks.
She has set me up with a meter for a daily check as well - which is what I wanted.
She was asking me about being more active - she obviously knew precious little about CFS/ME as I could see the disbelief when I was saying exercise makes me really ill and can put me in bed for days on end. Amazes me how some "specialists" can be so blissfully ignorant of everything outside their specialism.
