I think that if you actually counted your grams of carbs for one day, from morning to night, you'd be surprised. I believe you're eating way more carbs than you believe and that you're not eating low carb. I would almost guarantee that you will find that your blood sugar comes down once you modify what you're eating. Your carbs are high - regardless of the fiber.

You're on the maximum dose of metfomin, which is good, except that metformin works best with actual low carb eating. The bagel, low fat milk and yogurt are not giving your metformin the best chance possible to work in bringing your blood sugar down.

You're staying high because you're eating more carbs than what would be ideal for a diabetic. Most of us can't eat the foods you're eating and maintain blood sugar in target ranges. If you need help brushing up on LCHF eating, here you go.

The max dose of met is 2,550 but either way with the carbs I see its more than I can handle and I use insulin. So far its not working for you, the good thing is I see some really good things you are doing so congrats on that. Bagels are murder for most of us, eggs and bacon or sausage in the morning really works well. I see many good things you are eating, so move forward from there. Please post and ask questions its the only way we learn. I know how frustrating it can be, I ran much higher than you did till I stopped listening to the quack experts called doctors and dieticians.

I was replying to the OP's questions in this. Also, the max met dose isn't 2550 for both kinds. If the OP is taking extended release metformin, it's 2000 mg.

Yup that is true if on the ER the max is the 2,000 mg.

Thank you all for your answers I can't get peace of mind though until the numbers are at the right levels, so insteAd of trying figuring out things I webt to the doctor and we decided to start the insuline treatment, of course we have to do all the tests to determine the right dosage etc, but I'm really happy I'm sure this will help me get peace of mind and stop stressing out, of course I'll keep my LC diet so far I like the susbstitution I've made, I can control my weight way better!

One thing I will say just remember this, you the diabetic are in control. Doctors can do one thing, hand out scripts and advise. You will learn more about how to take care of you better than the doctor knows how to. I have seen it time and again, doctors love to tweak at things thinking they are so smart. I told my dad the other day mechanics have greater understanding and diagnostics than what doctors have.

I think going on insulin is a wise choice. If I start having problems with BG control, that would be my choice, as well.
