Diagnosed Type 2 in October with a reading of 32. A1C was 11.3 at last test, going for next round this week. I was prescribed Metformin and Glyburide. It is effective, and for the most part my levels are usually between 5.0-8.0. Been following diet outlined by Dietitian, but 2 hours after taking my meds in the morning with breakfast, my reading goes way too low. 2.9 is the norm. Then its a rush to get something sweet to bring that back up.
I'm a hairstylist by trade, and it's hard to just stop what I am doing to test if I am feeling low. I shouldn't have to stock up on Dex tabs and juice to take daily. I am still waiting to see a diabetic nurse. In the very small town that I live, we do not have a doctor anymore. The last time I saw the doctor before he left, he said to cut the Glyburide in half. Still get the lows. I know insulin users adjust their insulin as needed…so my question is, how safe do you think it would be to stop taking the Glyburide, just to see if that is the cause?
Frustrated by the lows, and still learning new things every day. Thanks in advance for any advice :)
