I am tired of all the fussing with diabetic drugs. All it does is allow me to eat what I shouldn't be eating. I'm going to try and do it on my own again. My biggest question is how soon will the heart disease, neuropathy, kidney failure, eye problems, take effect if I just eat right and exercise? My doctor used the "fear" angle to get me to take the metformin to begin with. I know what to do. Just have to do it. I need support from you guys as not much help around here!!
