I'm 37. A little over a year ago started going to the doctor, and I found out I have diabetes and I was put on Metformin 500mg. It wasn't helping, so she put me on Janumet 1000 mg twice daily… Still not helping at all. Okay, I've lost 95 pounds, started eating right, doing good stuff. My sugar is still crazy high. My glucose runs about 300 (and even up to 400 at times). It rarely goes below 250, and it has NEVER gone below 200.
I visit the doctor every month (sometimes more..for other reasons), every single visit, I express my concern that my sugar is insanely high (at least I think it's insane to be that high), and she orders blood tests, next visit she says "Yeah, your numbers are high… so see you in 4 weeks?" (that has happened MORE than a few times.)
Am I wrong in being confused that my doctor has absolutely no answer for me and no resolution? She has used the "well you need to eat right and exercise" thing, but I don't sit around and eat junk food all day! I've lost 95 pounds! You'd think my sugar would have gone down even just a little bit with that and taking 2000 mg of medicine. :( My mom has diabetes, she doesn't always eat right, and she doesn't exercise… her glucose runs about 130-150. (and she says that's high)
I'm in the process of changing family doctors, but seriously am I crazy for feeling neglected by my doctor, or should I anticipate my sugar going down sometime before I have some sort of diabetic episode, or just keel over? :( Maybe I'm over-reacting, I just need some feedback to know if I should just stop whining about it.
