Hey everyone :) I am new here and I'm looking for advice on many things. I was diagnosed 3 weeks ago with Type 2 and by the time it was found My AC1 levels were 11.8, I have Anemia and had lost about 16#. I am following my diet and getting as much exercise as I can tolerate at the moment. On 1000mg Metformin morning and night and started Onglyza 2 weeks ago. My sugar is running between 170 and 240 before meals, which is better than it was but I thought the meds would have brought it down quicker. I am worried about the long term effects of Onglyza as well. Some days are good and some days my body aches so bad it's a struggle to get through the day but I keep pushing. Doctors suggest A small dose of Insulin at night but I am having problems accepting that. Diabetes runs in my family but everything has changed so much with this disease and it is really confusing. How long can it take to get you sugar back to normal? Being tired so much and getting light headed every day is driving me nuts, but on the other hand my blood pressure is the lowest it has been in along time because of the sudden weight loss. Sorry to ramble on but I would greatly appreciate any advice or suggestions. I am a fighter and very determined not to let this beat me..
