I'm a 59 year old female and was diagnosed a few years ago. I take 500 mg metformin two times a day. My FBG is usually around 120. Obviously, it takes very few carbs to put my BG over 140. I notice that many of you mention fairly low FBG levels (uner 100). Is that because you are on insulin? Is it possible to get to those low readings with only oral meds? I'm finding out there are some differences between insulin and non-insulin users, especially in regards to low blood sugar, because I never have low blood sugar. I've only started testing myself within the last 6 months. My doctor never acted as though I needed to test. I've found that I probably should have started to test myself when I was first diagnosed. There is just so much information and just not enough time to take it all in. I've found I try to limit carbs to later in the day and use them in very small amounts, much smaller than the diet recommended by the nutritionist. I think the wealth of information that is available is truly helping me stay motivated but I'm wondering at what point, insulin becomes necessary. I like my doctor but should I see an endocrinologist? I feel like I need more help to keep me on the right track for my circumstances.
