I am type two diabetic as well and my condition is controlled by tablets.I can only speak to my own experience because what you get from the hospital is governed by a few factors.
I am 59 going on 60 and my missus is over 60 and in receipt of a State Pension from UK.
Because she is a pensioner and therefore entitled to the same Health Care as a Cypriot would be and because we are married she 'drags' me along as a dependant.I attend the hospital in Paralimni once every two months to see the doctor and get my repeat prescription.
I do not pay for my medication but I am required to pay 2 euros and 5 cents to register to see the doctor.
Now then,BEFORE you can register at the hospital you have to apply for your aliens residence card at the Immigration Dept.of the local Police Station.That is a whole different ball game and you should search the FAQ section for details.
When you get your residence card take that with your passports to the hospital admin dept.and tell them you wish to register as a patient.
You have to fill in a couple of forms and about 3 weeks later you will receive a pink card in the post which you have to show every time you attend hospital.
I persuaded my GP in the UK to let me have three months supply of medication 'cos I knew it would take time for the paperwork to be processed over here.
On my first visit to the hospital at Paralimni they took an armfull of blood and asked me to bring a urine sample a week later.They then handed me a plastic container and said they wanted 24hrs worth of urine!!!
Note. The pharmacist at the hospita failed the diplomacy course and had to be reminded that I do not get my medication at the expense of the Cypriot Govt.THEY make a claim against the uk govt.for our meds.
Best of luck and stick with it - any more problems ask away and I am sure someone will have the answer for your circumstances.
NB.Forgot to mention that the hospital will not take blood for testing as a matter of course like your diabetic clinic does in the uk.You will HAVE to ask them to do it.I personally work out four visits where I not only ask for meds but also ask for a blood test -the long term one.
