My name is Teresa. I am 67 years old. I have had Type 2 for about 10 years. I live in Oregon. I am prescribed 2000 mg metformin, glipizide 20 mg, and Lantus Solostar insulin 150 units daily. I recently went on a low carb diet and stopped taking my glipizide and my lantus. Wondering if anyone else has done something similar. So far my blood sugar readings are still the same as when taking these medications, but they are still not good (between 150 and 200). So far I have lost 6 pounds in 3 weeks of the diet. I also take 40 mg of lisinopril.
