I think even 'evermore.....' Meant to say that after seeing the GP and having the blood test he came away with a prescription for  Metformin...which is used to treat Diabetes.

Metamorphine is a strong analgesia used often for cancer patients , or those with chronic severe pain syndromes .

Just to avoid any mix up in the Pharmacy! 

He may of course need Metamorpgine for something else and no treatment for the diabetes .....

George V all of french medical treatment seems OTT to the Brits or you could call it being thorough and not time watching ,although I know their medicines and treatments are now more scrutinised by CPAM .

Following a routine blood test 4 months ago, my GP said I had 'Slight Diabetes' (I assume he meant pre-diabetes) and gave me a diet sheet. The diet is similar to the one issued by the NHS in the UK which has been discredited by most Diabetic user groups.

Another blood test last month showed the same levels and he gave me a prescription for a blood test meter and Metamorphine.

I could go on with questions but is there an English speaking support group in the Guingamp area?

Are we writing here about Type 1 or Type 2 Diabetes?   If it is Type 2, hospitalisation seems to me to be OTT.

Hi

I have diabetes, refered by my local doctor to morlaix hospital, If they have any concerns she'll have you in hospital to sort it out. Normally for up to a week. You will probably have to see the cardiologist too. Although none seem to speak English I can only praise them all I feel really well taken care of. Nothing to worry about here, I once lost my glucose test machine so in a panic went to the pharmacy and it was immediately replaced for free. Any questions just ask.

Christine
