I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes about 3 weeks ago with an A1c of 11. Since then, I have been counting my carbohydrates with a daily target of about 45 a meal. I have also been taking 500mg of Metformin twice a day. I test myself first thing in the morning and 2 hours after dinner each night. My numbers are slowly coming down, but so slowly! My morning readings were around 230-250 right after the diagnosis. This morning, my reading was 195. It seems to be going down, but at the same time I am worried that this is not happening fast enough. Tell me about your journey…how long did it take you to bring your numbers down?
