I have T2 diabetes; hypertension; polymyalgia (PMR) and have lymphoedema in my legs. My blood readings are raised artificially by having to take steroids for the PMR (4.75 years and counting). Recent Hba1 is 8.7% and I use metformin, Levermir and Novarapid as controls. My GP has recently tried to prescribe me 5mg Dapagliflozin as well. He has recommended having 6-weekly blood tests to ensure my one kidney is functioning properly.
I have read the info sheet and am reluctant to try what is a fairly new drug.
