:welcome: I'm so new I hardly understand what I'm talking about. But support I can do =)I am new diagnosed type 2 last year looking for a support system that can understand what I'm talking about.
I was on metformin but I stayed so sick I had to come off of it my internist then decided to send me to a endocrinologist he has decided to do diet only but I don't think it is working. This morning it was 166 then dropped I had a protein bar and it came up to 121 the. Lunch sent it up again and then it dropped again I feel like I have been hit by a truck now. I'm tired and don't know what to do!breezeonby said:Hello Tami and welcome to the forum! Tell us a little bit about how you manage your diabetes.
Hi tami.if my numbers aren't in control I feel like ass. you'll need to learn to eat the right amount of carbs/fat/protien not spike and not have your sugars drop rapidly. see if you can get your doc to sign off on a visit to a nutritionist/dietician to help you out or a diabetes education classDoes everyone else feel bad the day after they yo yo up and down all day? what can I do to feel better today?
If I have a bad meal (BG spike high) I get to feeling quite sick to my stomach, and just plain tired out!Does everyone else feel bad the day after they yo yo up and down all day? what can I do to feel better today?
At diagnosis it was 5.7 I got lucky and we caught it early I had started a new job and my new boss took notice of my bathroom breaks and thirst she met me one morning when I arrived and said clock in and bring me your finger, fasting I think then it was 150 something she started checking it periodicly during the day and then made me a dr appt they did the glucose tolerance and diagnosed in early april last year. the Metformin was the extended release I think 2000 mg we cut it in half and still I had those horrible bouts with diareah and vomiting too sometimes. the thing is it did work. A1C end of aug was 5.9 but endocrinolgist in sept said it was 5.4?? my reg Doc did blood test Endocrinologist did that 20 uses and throw away I wonder if it was right?? especially since I had not been on anything and I have seen 200's I had a steroid shot for a sinus infection last week and it was almost 300 that night. its 140 now.Tami, do you know what your A1C was at diagnosis? I am sorry that you had such a bad experience with Metformin. Do you know if it was the regular or extended release? I wasn't able to deal with the regular, but I got curious last September and my PCP gave me a low dose of ER and I was able to deal with it. Surprised the heck out of me.
