    Marnie Spencer on May, 11, 2012:

    I am 76years of age. I have Type2 diabetes for the past 6 years.. My blood sugars are twix 6.00 and 7.00.Presently 6.5. I take 20mg of Glimepiride each day. I suffer from nausea,sickness, vomiting, bloating, acute indigestion and stomach pain daily. If I don't take the Glimepiride I do not have these stomach problems. My Doctor insists that I persevere but she is not the one feeling/being sick until noon each day. I just want to know what would happen if I did not take the medication . Will it shorten my life substantially ? Isn't it better to have a shorter, happier life free from all this illness than maybe to live a little longer in misery each day. My Doctor is not able to answer this question of course, her job is to prescribe ,Can anyone else help ?
