Hi... I have just been diagnosed with Diabetes type 2 and am having trouble getting my bg under 200. I have been reading the forums and am so glad to have a place to learn and share. I am on metaformin 500 2x day and in a another few days will increase to 1000 2x day and Lisinopril 5mg per day, although I do not have high blood pressure. The doc said it was to protect my kidneys. Hmmm...not sure what that means. I have been cutting out all carbs and testing. My morning bg has been over 200 every day, and today it was 250. Twice this week during the day I have managed to get it down to about 180. Last night I felt sick and dizzy and panicky and tested, it was 121! Any suggestions on getting these numbers down. Thanks in advance.
