Thanks. I am nowhere near there yet, but hope to keep dropping into lower numbers. I am still staying around 110-130 for random readings, but dropping a bit so far after meals. Staying under about 170ish pp and dropping for FBS, to right around 100. As I inch downward toward more average numbers, I find myself thinking about LBS! I am on a titrating schedule for metformin, with a maintenance dose of 2,000 mg.

Dangerous lows are unlikely unless you're on exogenous insulin, sulfonylureas or other drugs which force your pancreas to give up every last minuscule drop of indogenous insulin. Metformin doesn't affect pancreatic function, so it is highly unlikely to cause hypoglycemic episodes, even at maximum dosage.

Thanks. Maybe part of it is wishful thinking on my part, that I will actually get that low (well, I'll even settle for a random reading of less than 105 at this point!)

I aim for never over 140 during the day (7.8 by my meter). 140 is where damage happens, as far as science can tell.

TTM - in my opinion, the main point is to never feel defeated about a number higher than you'd like it, as long as you're doing everything you can to keep your numbers low. Trust me, been there, partly still there. I've been doing everything I possibly can to keep numbers low and will get a 180 or even a 240 out of nowhere every few days.

Set reasonable goals for yourself, even if they're not considered the norm. My current goals include staying below 120 for a fasting blood sugar and staying below 200 after meals. As I start coming down, I'll drop my goals. You are doing good - great, in fact. They'll come down, just like mine will.

I have to treat in the 60s our below. I start out shaky, but as I drop I sometimes start to feel angry and destructive and eventually can't talk and can barely walk. It's a very scary feeling. One large glass of juice usually brings me back up within 15-20 minutes.

That's great that it's low enough to be controlled at that level.

All the advice here is great. Thanks. I think I will shoot to stay around 100 for pre meal and under 140 after (for now). I am still not sure how to get my fasting BG lower but I am working on it.

Patience is the pill to buy and if you find it, let all of us know! It takes a period of time to get here and the path back can be tauntingly slow, but if you put one foot in front of the other, it happens!

You just described my entire existence with D.
