I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes about 6 months ago. My doctor has me on 500 mg metformin HCL ER twice daily. I seemed to get my BS under control. 2 days in a row this week this happened to me: My BS was at aprox. 235 two hours after my lunch. Then I drank a full can of regular soda and in one hour my BS was 105. Down aprox. 130 points! Can you explain that? It just floored me! That's why I did it twice. It was like everything I had been reading about diabetes just suddenly went up in smoke! Now I'm so confused I feel hopeless. Please help me understand. It seems like I've wasted 6 months trying to learn about something that has too many variables to pin down. I'm getting to feel like there is no use to try.
