Alright..as someone who is fairly new to this disease, I have a few questions..
I just started reading about beta cell damage for Type 2 diabetics.
How the influx of insulin, either too much or too little, will start damaging your beta cells to where eventually you're completely insulin dependent and will need injections…
Does this account for all type 2's? What if you have your BS under control? Are your beta cells still getting damaged?
At what level is your body/cells/nerves getting damaged? My doctor told me to stay under 140. Is this the safety net? Anything above 140 is doing damage within my body?
I'm having trouble with the "dawn phenomenon". My blood sugars will vary in the mornings when I wake up. Sometimes even as low as in the mid 70s-80's. But most of the time they are high. 110-120.
I can't pin-point when or why they are high or low in the mornings. Can anyone shed some light on this for me?
That's all for now. Thanks for the time! Talk to you pros soon ;)
