coffee no sugar and black will not raise your BG at all.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.
I want to be honest with you because I careI 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 did a glucose first time for two hours mark after breakfast and it was 127In 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.
Do you often quote terms? Because if you do, that is one more strike against you.I'm sorry you see my comments as a 'jibe.' I know from personal experience how high glucose numbers over time can result in numb fingers, toes, legs, and arms. It's not fun, I can assure you.
Ultimately, it's your body that will be harmed.
When I was just a little bit pregnant, I called myself pregnant. I certainly wasn't "big" like those with more advanced pregnancy, but certainly was pregnant....calling myself Diabetic compared to some of you with advanced cases does not seem justified
Ratter51 would not be the first to do that <raises hand>. I was diagnosed with my own "touch of diabetes" several years before I took serious action to manage it. And I know I'm not the only one posting on this site who waited to act -- sometimes for years.It appears that you are determined not to acknowledge your condition.
