I don't understand how or why my BS went up to the point that I need medication to control it. My BS is running about 120 in the mornings and after taking 1 tablet of Metiformin is stays around 102-110 during the day. Before starting the meds my average BS was arouind 140. I have always been active and no one in the family has diabetes. Has something in my body quit working or does this just come on by age since I am 57?

I know this may be heresy to the medical community in general, but there are times we just don't know why a disease or condition affects someone as it does. And it really does no good worrying about the "why me?" questions.

The plain and simple fact is you have this disease the question now becomes, "What am I going to do about it?" Am I going to go into denial and hide my head in the sand hoping it will go away? Or will I learn all that I can about diabetes and fight it for control of my body? The choice is yours. The outcomes in your future are affected. Whether or not you have many serious complications in the future, or whether you have few, minor to no complications depends on your behaviors from now till the end of your life.

I pray you grab the diabetes bull by the horns and wrestle him to the ground.

Blessings to you and yours
