My glucose readings were pretty good (under 150) until five months ago. My doctor took me off of Actos. I was on Actos, Metformin (1000mg twice a day) and glimepiride (4mg twice a day). Without Actos my readings went to the 180's and 190's. Finally the readings went into the 220's and I was getting lots of tingling in my arms, legs and feet. I went to an Endocrinologist who got me on Kombiglyze XR (twice a day). It helped for a week but the glucose readings went up again. I am now on insulin (Levemir). The Endocrinologist told me to keep taking the three oral medications with the insulin. I started out with 10 units of insulin which didn't help a lot. I have been increasing the dose and I'm up to 15 units now. It's still going into the 200's occasionally with just as much tingling. I don't know what to do. Should I continue increasing the insulin dose or go on another type of insulin?
