It is nearly 3 months since I was put on Metformin for my diabetes (I was diagnosed in 2000). The G.P. wanted me to take 2 tabs a day but I agreed to one with a blood test and review after three months. I had the blood test on Monday and saw a new G.P. on Friday. I have been extremely tired and lightheaded and, without my asking, she suggested stopping the Metformin as my blood sugar levels have been stable for years and are around the 40 mark. She also suggested stopping the small dose of aspirin that older people are prescribed here and the statin I was taking.
I was really pleased with this and go back at the beginning of December after another blood test to see how things are progressing. Exactly what I was hoping for.
This morning we went back to the Growers' Market which was wonderful. I much prefer being able to choose the vegetables I buy rather than get a box full. We got there at about 6.30 a.m. and it was much busier than usual. We then went to the supermarket where only one person is allowed in. I only had a few minutes to wait before it opened at 7 a.m. and there were about half a dozen of us waiting.
We had just got home when Doug's youngest daughter arrived with a paper for us and stopped for a cuppa, consequently, we ended up having a late breakfast and have not worried about lunch even though I cooked a pot of mince.
Tonight the clocks go forward for Summer time so next week it will be dark when we get up to go to the market.
