A few years ago a Dr. put me on morphine, for pain management. It had one great side affect. It controlled my ups and downs. I lost weight, I became much more active. In the process, it seems I needed less and less diabetes medication.
When this Dr. left the practice I was removed from the morphine. With in two months I found myself on insulin. My a1c went from 5.7 to 7.8. For over a year and a half, I have had trouble controlling my blood best a1c was 6.8. I then had an injury and was given a supply of morphine for one and a half months. My blood sugar levels went down to 75 to 130 steady. I had to stop the insulin because of the lows and my a1c was 5.8 . I am now out of the morphine and I am staying in the 175 to 225 range and I am back on the insulin. Any thoughts? Anyone have any information on this?
