I have been told that after having this surgery I would no longer have to treat my diabetes. However I am wondering if I would be trading one set of problems for another.

Was on glauofage but changed to metorfim have been really sick face skin peeling and diarrhoea stoped taking them and now feeling much better found a chemist wher I can get glauofage

My blood pressure was 150/90
There is a ton of science out there on Diabetes, Type 2 in particular – collectively the professionals know a lot but very little benefits the patient.

I have read that certain supplements ( evening primrose oil) and a Tens machine can help with PN. Has anyone tried these? Do they help?
