Actually, a new PCP would also suffice. I have met a few PCP's and GP's that far surpass an endo's knowledge in diabetes management. I also agree that a doctor change is definitely in order, here.

Agreed my PCP is very knowledgeable in diabetic care. Although she's not sure I'm "full blown" as we say (even to the point based on my A1C with her she would not consider me diabetic). She is the first Dr. that has said eating low carb is the best even if your not diabetic.

I'm 21, I have been exercising, to try and lower BG levels but this morning I woke up at 150 and after a meal and workout it was 297. I had a healthy breakfast and drank pleanty of water, I don't understand why it went up so high? But the medication seems to be helping since I woke up with normal range number.. any comments?

What do you call a healthy breakfast?

I call a healthy breakfast eggs bacon/sosage NO bread NO oatmeal
NOTHING with carbohydrates carbs raise BG ALL carbs raise BG.

So what did you have for breakfast?

No, those numbers are not even close to normal. And no, because you are type 1 (I'd bet a lot the your doctor is wrong - you are not type 2), those drugs won't help. Actually drugs like glipizide probably will speed up beta cell burnout. 150 is still safe, but because of those drugs you may very soon not be able to produce any insulin at all. You need to test C-peptide (I don't think that antibodies are necessary now but of course testing won't hurt). Most likely it will tell you that you need insulin. Not soon. Not very soon. Immediately.
I don't want to scare you. I've heard about people with a lot higher sugars and they didn't develop ketoacidosis. And probably you're safe at least a month. But it's not certain. Why gamble?
