diet, exercise and meds seem to be working great for you. I don't see any reason to change anything do you?
No, not really. It is all working well. I just have been reading a lot about blood sugar going too low and I don't want to do that. I would really like to get off the meds one day if I am able and my doc approves. My dietician said that was pushing it. Honestly, the early education towards a new diabetic is mostly about low blood sugar, A1C numbers. There is little advice on too low numbers; most of that is gleaned from the internet. You have to admit it can be confusing and daunting.diet, exercise and meds seem to be working great for you. I don't see any reason to change anything do you?
JOE! You start keeping some gluco-tabs in the nightstand! Wazzup with this going downstairs & rummaging around when you're dropping so low? If I tried that, I'd for sure fall head-over-heels trying to get down the stairs & wind up breaking a leg! (okay, old-mother-hen-mod shutting up now . . . )recently had a low inmy sleep woke up at 4am w/ BS = 40 went downstairs and treated it retested 20 min later w/ a BS = 98 and went back to bed. you can handle this.
Hello Jim and :welcome: to the forum. Get comfortable :couch2: What type of meds have you been on beside Janumet? TEST when you feel low and take 15 grams of fast acting carbs and wait 15 minutes and the retest. If still low repeat. If you are going lower than 70 often, let your doctor know. Vist often and take care!Hi,
New forum member audiogatorjim here. I take two Janumet daily - I take the evening pill later at night now. It seems to work better. My fasting and 2 hr after meal readings are dropping. This morning, fasting was 82 and post breakfast was 83. Now, I am worried about going too low and hypo...
I am scheduled to take an A1C in a month or so. My first was 10.8, 2nd (w/ meds) was 7.8 and now I think the next may be in the 5's. I am exercising more also.
It would seem the diet and medicine are VERY effective.
Great forum by the way. Very helpful and members are gracious and inspiring.
