Hi all. I was diagnosed type 2 august 24th with levels over 300. I started out on 500mg metformin and in 2 weeks went to 1000mg. The metformin was making me sick so they put me on extended release and that really helped. My levels came down and morning and night were in the 140 - 160 ranges. Then i had a sinus infection and my levels went up and as soon as that calmed down i caught the flu for over a week. Im over that now but my levels are still in the 170-190 range. I am eating the same way i was. Any advice?

Look into GABA. I'm sounding like a broken record here with the GABA, but diabetics are usually deficient in GABA and what you described sounds like a GABA deficiency. Your adrenalin system kicks into high gear to help you battle illness, once the illness is gone you need GABA to bring your body back to normal.

Hi!


I didn't know what it was either. Found this link. I'm still researching it myself. Hope it helps:

Any kind of stress increases the BG levels. You are recovering from 2 infections that caught you back to back. I would think that you will see your past levels soon. Be patient.

That being said your levels are still too high, and I'd suggest a close look at the diet and recipe sections here.
