I take the same med, PF. You may find a couple things that change in your daily habits, but nothing that is much of a problem. It works well to control my blood/sugar levels and I hope it works as well for you.

Good luck with it!

It's ain't the being dead that bothers me, it's the dying!

When I go, I would prefer to use the express checkout!

I'm battling the borderline as well. Doc keeps warning me and I keep trying to lose some weight to slow down the process.

That's just it, Aunt Bea - it is a pain - in the back, knees, ankles, hands, shoulders.....

Dang, PF. You have a great attitude. Hope the meds work for you!

I've been borderline for years too. I'm not overweight, exercise and eat healthy. Still like the tobacco, though. I have the feeling everyone is " borderline" something.

Thanks, everyone. I've already been doing the diet, so it's not like I'll be making very many changes, just adding another pill. More water, too.

Babetoo, I already spend all day in the nursing home, I'm just sorry it was lousy for you. I love my patients and love taking care of them. Of course, I would have been the nurse you hated...I like to see my patients get better and go home, so I am a bit of a bully.
