I was just prescribed glipizide. My new doctor is trying to help me minimize the side effects of metformin. Anyway I picked up my prescription for glipizide today and the pharmacist recommended 6 small "meals". I don't know about that with my work schedule. What would qualify as a mid-morning or mid-afternoon "meal". Do glucerna bars or shakes count? A handful of almonds? A protein drink? Some yogurt or dried fruit?
I've been diabetic for 10 years and never had it under control. It's easier just sailing down De-Nile.
