I am very new to this site and I'm sure this topic has been discussed many times before. I am a Type 2 diabetic and take metformin and Byetta. I know when my sugar is low to drink some OJ, a couple of hard candies, sucrose tablets, etc. But what is there to do if my sugar is high? I have not been very good lately about testing and following my diet and I am hoping by being active in this group, I will be more responsible for my health. This morning I did not test, so I don't know where I was when I woke up, but I had a serving of oatmeal for breakfast and began having a few pieces of cheese with a few crackers for lunch. I began to feel light headed, then dizzy. I thought my sugar was low. It was 367. I took an extra metformin and within 1 hour it was down to 226. But is their anything else I can do? Eat a protein, drink water…? I really want to get back on track and I need advise from those that are going thru the same things I am. Please help.
