Gosh it’s only 2 points over normal. I did have coffee so maybe that did it...black no sugar or anything. I forgot about the coffee.

coffee no sugar and black will not raise your BG at all.

and while its only 2 higher, its 5 hours after the meal. it means ANY foods you eat that has carbs at that point forward will put you at 110, 120, etc

if you are starting at 100 when all the food is gone from your system, there is no place to go but up

if you said it was 102 after 1 hour and after 2 hours and then it went down to 90, that would have been different

and for the record,

102 is NOT BAD.... in fact its pretty good but my point is that its not great

I dont want to discourage you. you obviously care and want to do what you can and thats great!

but I dont want you to think 102 5 hours after you eat is a great number for someone without diabetes

I was thinking of doubling the Metformin on my own as my Dr. cancelled till Feb 12 for some reason. one time I did take it twice for a very short time then he said I Metformin a day. Actually what really happened was he said take it twice a day 50mg each time, but I had forgot he said twice a day and was taking it once a day.... then he said keep it once a day. The pill bottle still says twice a day. If I take it twice a day then the blood number should drop below 100 I figure. Right??
I don’t know if he will get angry or not though.im pretty sure he is going by the A1C average at this point.
Frankly when I was in the hospital in 2012, shortly after he started me on Metformin then stopped all of a sudden as when he started me on it the A1C was 6.2. So I think he is to blame for halting the Metformin which allowed the Diabetes. So it’s his fault maybe.
Anyway water under the bridge. Now he says it’s diabetes but I don’t know if it’s full blown diabetes or just a touch. I mentioned this to him once and he said nothing. I said to him if he kept me on Metformin I would not have any diabetes but he did say it doesn’t work that way. You you blame anyone for wanting to say F it???? Thanks for the responses.

I want to be honest with you because I care

first , dont take the medication more than the doctor has prescribed

second , this disease is progressive if you dont do anything about diet... now it might be 2 metformin... then maybe another medication and then maybe insulin

third - you are not at a bad stage now. you are at a stage where you can control it through diet and not need ANY medication and stop/slow the progression

My recommendation is still take only 1 a day until you talk to the doctor. Please dont take what I have said as you are in desperate need.. you are not.. this is mild at the moment but that means you have an opportunity that a lot of people dont have. to put it in remission through diet.

Pills fix the symptoms, not the disease

In that 5 hours, how long and how much was it over 140? You cannot just cherry pick the numbers you want and ignore the rest. Waiting until you know it is lower to test is not being honest with yourself.

I did a glucose first time for two hours mark after breakfast and it was 127
On the glucose meter. Thatís HAS to be good in anyoneís book.
This is why I seriously doubt this Diabetes stuff. All my numbers are good within the good range of A1C 7. Good meaning well controlled and A1C under 7 at 6.4. I just have to lay off the sweets a little.

I honestly dislike the meter and using it. For me there no reason to use it anymore. Bottom line is I may have a touch of sugar and I guess most people my age probably do.

Do you often quote terms? Because if you do, that is one more strike against you.

I am old and tired and I don't play well with others now-a-days. We may be incompatible, and that is my guess here.

I could be wrong.

Hi, I decided to take my Metformin 500mg tablet every other day. I let my doctors office know. Have not heard back so I assume it’s ok. My A1C is 6.4 so I think it’s worth a try. There has to be other people doing this too. Sound like a plan?
