Just Dx insulin resistant. My HbA1c was 5.2, non-fasting blood sugar was 93, but insulin was 44. My father was Dx with T2 DM recently at a level of over 500. Past 6 month S&S were classic insulin resistance once Dx: fatigue, lethargy, 20 lb weight gain, craving for sugar candy, depression, and decreased libido. MD started with metformin every night. Usual SE's so far: diarrhea, nausea, decreased appetite now it's back and weight fluctuations. I really want to try to control this with diet change and exercise. Just lacking that motivation to get going. MD gave me no info. Have done all research on my on up to now. I am an RN on a Vascular floor at a local hospital and see full blown DM pts every time I work. I am always educating them, yet now feel I know absolutely nothing!
