Hi, I've been lurking here for a bit and got some great info, now decided to make it official to join the "exclusive" group. Here is a little background, I was dx with GD with my son and was insulin dependent from 30wks on, took NPH before bedtime, I was induced at 39wks6days, delivery was uneventful and the baby's blood sugar was normal. 2months after the delivery, I was dx with type II for HbA1C of 6.5. After being on LC diet,weight loss and workout, my HbA1C went down to 6.0, FSBG 106, cholestrol 176,other lipid within normal ranges, during that visit, my endo said he will put me on metformin and statin once i'm done breastfeeding. What is the reason to put me on medication when my blood sugar and is being control with diet and workout and my lipids are normal? He told me is the "standard of care". I'm really trying hard to not go on medication for different reasons.
