Hello! I was diagnosed in December 2012. Since that time I have lost 25 pounds and my BG for the last three months has averaged 104. Last week my average was 97. I am taking Metformin (1000 mg per day) which still makes me sick as a dog. I also started on Victoza last month (.06mg) with the hope of weaning me off Metformin. My doc thinks I should ALWAYS be at 100 for BG so I freak when I get to 112 (like today). He does not want to take me off Metformin but because I feel lousy on it, I have a hard time making myself exercise. I am walking some, but it is usually all I can do to work all day and take care of my family at night. The ADA guidelines indicate normal BG levels at 70-130 Fasting, and lower than 180 after a meal. So, is it time for me to look for a new doc, or is he just protecting my best interests? By the way, when I was diagnosed my BS was 268 and the Blood glucose fasting test was discontinued when I reached 500! I think I have made good progress but feel my doc may not know what he is doing. I hate changing docs because he has been great otherwise. What do you all think?
