Hey hey

No I didn't..At the same time I was seeing my specialist about my medication and he prescribed me metformin for weightloss and hair (ugh)
Now I feel SOO much better..I'm thinking it maybe because metformin is used to treat diabetes sooo I may well have it..but at least the medication I am on will be conrolling it I suppose..

I have another appointment next month with him so I will bring up how much better I feel and ask him if he thinks it could be because I could have diabetes..

Glad you're feeling better - tell him that there seem to be quite a few women with normal fasting blood levels who then fail the OGG test. If you are in fact diabetic then at least your medications will be free.. they also seem to then take more notice and treat slightly raised BP and Cholesteral too.
